Updating your avionics data is easy with Included Jeppesen Distribution Manager (JDM).
JDM is a free software program that you can use to manage and update your data.
You simply upload the data to your avionics system where and when it's convenient for you.
Chances are any one of these changes may impact your next flight.
PILOT ACTION: Utilize preflight fuel planning and in-flight fuel flow monitoring as methods of calculating fuel on-board. PRODUCTS AFFECTED: GTS 8000 units with software version 2.21 and earlier (interfaced to a Garmin GX000 Integrated Flight Deck) are affected.
Q: I have multiple avionics systems in my aircraft that require Nav Data.
Q: Am I able to download and update my Nav Data prior to the effective date for a future trip? For your convenience, Nav Data updates are available to download from JDM up to 10 days prior to the effective date.
It is important to understand that the database cannot be used until the effective date because the changes in the database are not approved for use until the effective date.
