Post Garmin GDL 82 V2.01 Software, Oct. 10, 2019

Hello GDL 82 Users,

As some of you are aware, the initial GDL 82 software could transmit a couple of "uncloaked" ADS-B Out messages with real aircraft ICAO address and Flight ID on power-up, even with the transponder code set to 1200 and the Anonymous switch active.

Many of you requested this be improved, and we are happy to report that this work is complete. The new V2.01 software includes improvements to make sure that a system starting up with the Anonymous mode switch active and a transponder code of 1200 will enter Anonymous before transmitting any messages thus safeguarding the true ICAO address and Flight ID of the aircraft.

We also created a special non-certified aircraft service bulletin with instructions on using the same PC installation tool and USB interface you originally used to install/configure the system to install the new software.

The service bulletin and V2.01 software can be downloaded from the GDL 82 Software Download page. There is one download for the software plus service bulletin, and a second for the PC tool if you need it. The PC tool is unchanged.

Let us know if you have questions.

Thanks,
Steve

Is this update applicable to certified installations?

Hello Jerry,

Yes, the same software is used for all installations, but there is a separate service bulletin for certified aircraft.

Thanks,
Steve

A big giant THANK YOU from me also. Way to go Garmin !!!!
Question:
In planning a new panel from (almost) scratch; in order to have the anonymous mode would I need to use the GDL-82 with a non-ADSB xponder or can we expect similar software upgrades for the GTX-345 etc. ??? In other words, how would I get anonymous ADSB in/out with a G3X based system ???

Hello Larry,

You are welcome.

Currently, the only way to operate in anonymous mode is with a UAT Out solution like the GDL 82 with a GTX 325 or GTX 327 Mode C transponder. We support the GTX 325/327 transponder connected to a G3X/G3X Touch system including touch screen control if you wanted to go that route. You could add a GDL 50R or GDL 52R for ADS-B In traffic and weather.

Perhaps some day we will be allowed to support Anonymous mode on a Mode S ADS-B Out transponder like the GTX 35R/45R/345/345R, but that is not currently permitted.

Thanks,
Steve

What I appreciate most is that a large company like Garmin would provide a super-knowledgeable support person to keep a community like VAF well-informed, answer questions, listen to concerns.

How many companies do you feel like you have a direct interface to the technical staff?

Thank you!
