Default Garmin Onepak Subscription

Anyone use this? I bought mine and it works great but then I just noticed that even though the Onepak comes with the IFR chart part for Garmin Pilot the basic VFR half of Garmin is still a separate subscription. At least that is what mine is showing.

My basic VFR Garmin Pilot subscription still shows that is expires this month even though I purchased the Onepak for my plane.

Is this correct, do you still have to pay separate for the Garmin Pilot basic subscription. This kind of defeats the whole Onepak idea to me.

I just want to make sure this is how this works before I renew my Garmin Pilot subscription.

Cheers

I have the OnePak as well. I think you'll be OK. Basically I believe what's happened is you have 2, concurrent Pilot subscriptions--your original VFR and the new IFR one courtesy of your OnePak subscription. The IFR one didn't replace or overwrite the VFR one even though you most likely had the same user ID and everything as I did. Once your VFR one expires you should still have the IFR one which includes all of the basic VFR features.

Default Makes sense

Now that makes sense.

My basic subscription to Garmin Pilot expires on Friday the 13th so who knows what could happen!

Make sure you don't have just the IFR add-on. It requires a standard subscription to function.

UH-Oh! I totally misunderstood how the IFR upgrade worked--my apologies!~ I wasn't aware that the IFR premium package was just an add-on to the VFR Standard package and that we'd have to main the VFR subscription.

So I guess this means it is not really a Onepak, it is a Onepak + Garmin Pilot Basic. Kind of defeats the on stop one subscription package for all your needs idea.

I will have to make a suggestion to Garmin I guess.

Cheers

Did anyone figure out if this is accurate?

I'm trying to decide if this is worth it for me or not.

Is this accurate?

Garmin Pilot = $150
GTN650 Charts = $290
G3X Charts = $150

Current Total = $590

Onepak = $649.

If I'm understanding it correctly I get everything I'm paying $590 for, plus the other updates for my GTN650 and updates for a handheld if I decide to get one?

Thanks,

-Dan

The OnePak does require you to purchase the standard VFR Garmin Pilot subscription separate to be able to use the included IFR upgrade. The OnePak only includes the IFR upgrade for Garmin Pilot. I ran into this as well this year when I started using the OnePak.

What subscription are you getting for $290 on the GTN?

Also the OnePak for $649 does not include flight charts so you won't get approach plates with that one.

The $290 is just the navigation data for the 650.

Does the $649 include the G3X approach plates, and not the GTN ones, or none?
