This is a good find! I don't know if this is possible but if any customer also has this subscription and is willing to try...

Just to clarify, I am happy to bring attention to availability of this NavData, but I can't try this as I don't have Reality XP GNS 530W/430W v2 and don't have this NavData.  Hoping someone can confirm before I purchase.

Hmm... tempting.

As for RealNav from the FAQ it states; The data from this site only updates your RealNav-compatible GPS.

I do not believe that RealNav and Garmin are compatible..

Thanks Bert.

When I checked out the Garmin site I couldn't find any info to be confident enough to give it a try.

So RealNavData.com probably isn't compatible....

What about Garmin's NavData here, anyone tried it? https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/511382

Hi Folks,

I'm looking - that seems odd as the NavData for the real Garmin GNS costs far more than that ???

Not much info on that page...

For $50.00 - I'd upgrade the trainer software if it works...

Maybe because it's a one shot deal and not a subscription ?

My next question - would it work on both the GTN and GNS trainer ?

Regards,

Scott

Hi, it says:

Recommended for Flight Stream users with Jeppesen NavData in their avionics

I doubt this would work.

Hi Jean-Luc,

Yeah - the Flight Stream is a unit that sets up a WiFi in your plane which connects to both your GNS and iPad - so you can enter flight plans into your GNS via the iPad instead of the clunky interface on the GNS... I'm not sure why it would need NavData....

Regards,
Scott

Maybe just because the software has been designed not to sync the DB up back to the iPad, so as to have customers required to make additional purchases... ;-)

..so what do we do if we want to stay up to date, or should I assume that we are left with almost useless device (My data base is from 2009, mean approaching ILS at KSNA is 19R where it should be 20R) ???
