Hello
Just purchased the Flight 1 GTN complete edition. I would like to purchase an upgrade of the navigation database directly from Garmin. How can I do this?

Thanks

In this thread:
another user was told that he could update the navdata "but it would not be cheap", and that you were able to point him to the correct place?

He was talking about updating the existing GTN database. Not one from Garmin, is a commercial product for real pilots with real Garmin's and is expensive.

You cant because Garmin wont sell you the database SD card without a valid registered serial number for an actual unit. GTN/GNS etc.

No matter how much you want to pay unless you own the real thing you are out of luck. The best option is that F1 will support the new version of the trainer (2.5 I think) which has a newer database.

Thank you for the replies. I do have an actual real-word Garmin GPSMAP 695. The updates are transferred to the unit via an SD-card after being downloaded from the Garmin website. Is it possible to copy the data from the SD-card into the GTN PC trainer?

Yes, that has been done successfully for GNS owners, do not know about GPSMAP owners.. But worth a try!

Send me a PM with your email address for instructions.
