Aera 660 software version 3.40 is now available. As always, the Aera software update is free and can be easily downloaded on your Aera 660 when connected to wifi. Here are a few highlights from the new V3.40 software:
On the airport runway review tab, the Aera 660 will now show you headwind and crosswind components for the selected runway. The preferred runway will be highlighted green.
Internet weather has been expanded to include a couple new features. You now have the option of seeing NEXRAD Base Reflectivity. Selecting Menu on the weather page allows you to select between Composite or Base Reflectivity.
Internet weather also now shows animated NEXRAD. From the Weather Menu page, this feature can be turned on and off.
Also included in V3.40 software:
Keyboard for LAT/LON data entry
Improvement for extended runway center line label drawing
Improvement for weather radar coverage drawing
Improvement for products selection processing for the weather map page
Improvement for traffic field display
General improvements to system operation
GDL 5X software version 2.12
GDL 39 software version 4.81
GPS software version 3.30
For those of you anxiously awaiting new FIS-B weather products, that feature didn't quite make it into this release, but is still planned in a future software release. We appreciate your patience.
