Post Garmin Transponder Software Updates at Oshkosh 2018

Hello,

We will once again provide free software upgrades for Garmin Mode S transponders (and the GTX 327) used in Experimental aircraft at Oshkosh.

Just bring your GTX 327, 23ES/33ES/330/330ES, 35R/45R/335/335R/345/345R transponder in to us at the Garmin tent at Oshkosh and we will install the latest software into your transponder while you wait. It only takes a few minutes to accomplish this update.

Here are the latest versions:
GTX 23ES/33ES/330/330ES: V8.04, Jan 2018

GTX 35R/45R/335/335R/345/345R: V2.12, June 2018

GTX 327:
GTX 327 V2.10 software was released in Feb. 2014 and is the latest software for all GTX 327 units manufactured before July 2014.

GTX 327 V2.12 software was released in July 2014 to support newer hardware in the GTX 327 units manufactured after that date.

GTX 327 V2.13 software was released in Aug. 2017 to address an altitude reporting issue only when using a Gillham based altitude encoder with GTX 327 (011-00490-00) serial numbers 83750922 to 83752847 or GTX 327 (011-00490-10) serial numbers 84000356 to 84000357.

We are located across from the EAA Welcome Center and the Ford tent. If you look at the Airventure grounds map, this is grid K13. From homebuilt camping, just follow Knapp street South to Celebration Way (the main entry street) and turn left.

Sorry, but we are not equipped to perform sign-offs for certified aircraft, so please only bring us transponders that are installed in experimental aircraft.

Hope to see you at Oshkosh!



Thanks,
Steve

Steve,
For those not going to OSH this year, is the update available for download? When I wired my panel, I wired the DB9 connector to my GTX 23ES just to be able to do these updates.

Thanks

Default In person or via an SD card?

To expand on Jason's question, is this part of the normal G3x software update that's normally done with an S.D. card that's downloaded from the Garmin website?....or is this something that the transponder needs to be pulled and the update performed by a Garmin dealer? I have a new 45-R that hasn't been installed yet and I'm wondering if I should bring it with me to the show so that you guys can update it for me??

Mark

Hello Jason,

Sorry, we don't have any software downloads for transponders on our website.

Thanks,
Steve

Hello Mark,

The transponders are currently updated by Garmin dealers or by us at SNF and Oshkosh.

We would be happy to update your GTX 45R is you would like to bring it to us at Oshkosh.

Thanks,
Steve

Hello zmatt,

Yes, we will again be providing software updates for portables at the product support desk at Oshkosh.

Please check the list below for the latest software release so you don't stand in line when there is nothing new to install. The product support folks tell us that this happens a lot where customers bring up old portables only to find that they already have the latest software.

Aera 79X V5.50
Aera 660 V3.30
Aera 5XX V5.80
GPSMAP 69X V7.70
GPSMAP 496 V4.80
GPSMAP 396 V5.70
GPSMAP 296 V6.10
GPSMAP 295 V2.50
GPSMAP 196 V4.60

Thanks,
Steve

I have 1 23ES that is about two years old. Would like to avoid the weight penalty of bringing this to OSH. Is there any reason I would need an update? It will be integrated with a G3X and fed from a 430W.

Larry
