Try just logging in with a blank username and password. You should be able to download an old database. Same for the simulator. To actually use the IFD-100 with an IFD-440 or -540, it will need to have the same database as the panelmount unit.

HA! I upgraded my iPad a bit ago, and still had the old one kicking around. :-)

Most "normal" folk could probably borrow one from a friend or family member to try it out. :-)

Rico, leave the username and password fields blank, then click on the "login" link. This will allow you to download some demo databases to play with.

Click on the database you want, then click download. Repeat until you have everything you want. I used the eCharts, NavData, Obstacles, MapData, and Terrain-NAmerica databases.

Once done, click Exit and it will take you to the simulator screen.

Default IFD database cost

What options are available for IFR data subscriptions on the IFD-440, is it only Jepp?


Does anyone know how much navigation/obstacle/terrain data is?

Thanks

Thanks DJ, it worked.
Can anyone tell me the difference from the 440 to the 540 other than the screen size! Does the 440 comes with wifi/Bluetooth built in or is it a separate module? What about the 3D synthetic terrain view?

Scroll to near the bottom and look at the "IFD Model Features" table:

http://www.avidyne.com/products/ifd/index.html

Wifi/Bluetooth is optional on the 440, built into the 540 and 550. They all have the synthetic terrain.

I paid $665 for 1 year all US IFR coverage for NavData and Obstacles. NavData alone is $480. I may not renew obstacles since they don’t change all that much. I may just get them every couple of years or rely on ForeFlight.

I didn’t get approach charts because I prefer to view those on my iPad and I already have ForeFlight, WingX and FlyQ EFB. I don’t find the Jepp charts to be worth the extra money anymore. I’m not sure they’d be all that useful on a 440 screen. Pricing is pretty steep. I can’t remember the exact price, but it was something like $700 for all of the US. They offer a bundle of NavData, Charts, Obstacles and Terrain for $1,190 for the whole US. Terrain was last updated in 2015 and probably comes installed in the IFD.

You can save a little money by getting coverage for only parts of the country. The Jeppesen site stinks, and appears not to be functioning right now, when I tried to look up updated prices.
