Hi GRT pilots... Just a reminder that Jeff updated the Nav database last week, valid date 10/17/2013.

Please let me know if you receive multiples of this message. Last time I sent an update, the forum went crazy and sent out many copies to several thread subscribers. I think it's fixed, but if it does so again, I apologize.

New SX Software: ADS-B TFRs, Enroute HITS and more!

Hi All,

We've just published the latest software for the Sport SX, which includes the long-awaited TFRs for ADS-B, Enroute Highway-In-The-Sky and N-numbers for ADS-B targets. There are a lot of small updates with this new software. Please read the release notes carefully and note that some things might look different on your screen. One example is the "GOTO" button on the flight plan now has the Direct-To symbol to make it standardized. Small things like this can trip you up if you are busy in flight, so as always, test it thoroughly in VFR conditions first.

Here's the link to the SX software page:
