Updating the Avidyne was always an easy but a very slow (painful) process.
I recently took over the management of a Perspective bird, and have to confess I’m still learning how to update these birds, as they were never as straight forward. Including changing the update process from early software revisions to later.
I know during our recent Cirrus Partners Webinar, Cirrus touched base on this and introduced a PowerPoint for updating. Unfortunately I missed the beginning of the Webinar where they discussed this and the new CSIP renewal procedures.
So here is the deal. The aircraft was using Jepp Chartview. During the subscription renewal process the original manager opted to just combine all into the flygarmin website and use the Garmin Flitechart subscription. Unfortunately, we have not been able to get this database to take and update. Any tips, known compatibility issues? Interestingly enough the Cirrus Database update PowerPoint only addresses updating using the Jepp software for charts.
I recently read that in the handheld models, if the Jepp Chart files are on the SD card the units default to these and ignore the garmin Flitecharts on the internal database. Might this be a similar case problem I am experiencing?
