Default Version 3.00

Hi Steve,

saw there is version 3.00 online. Did I missed something here?
What are the advantages of this new version?

Best regards

Hello gFlyer,

V3.00 primarily adds data fields on the charts page and SXM weather/music support for the new GDL 51/52 receivers. Please see this posting.

Thanks,

Steve,

Would you be able to answer the questions in my post e.g.

"Is there a document anywhere which lists the various file formats which can be stored on the SD card and which the 660 auto detects and does specific things with?"

I can't find them on the internet.

Many thanks.

Peter

Hello Peter,

There is no document other than the Pilot Guide.

Thanks,
Steve

Steve.
Reassuring to know you are working on this.
Recently Australia's Airservices have released their maps/charts online free.

Does this allow Garmin to look into providing charts/maps for Australian users?

Thanks.
John

Hello John,

We certainly haven't forgotten Australia!

It is great that Australia is providing their charts free online, but if you read the fine print you will see that commercial entities are not allowed to use this data.

The requirements for a company like Garmin to use this data is quite involved, but we hope to eventually get through this process and receive approval to do so.

Thanks,
Steve

Default QUESTION FOR GARMIN

I know I asked this question much earlier without any response.

When I look at weather(winds) on the Aera 660 the wind barbs are VERY tiny.
Is there any way to enlarge them?
Even when I zoom in on the screen their size does not change.
Also, sometimes they are partially covered by other graphics on the screen.

thanks.
