I recently purchased the RXP 530W sim and was hoping for a newer database- no such luck. I have a Jeppesen sub but didn't know how to get that info into the Garmin GNS Trainer and thence into the RXP sim. But, I figured it out!
Herewith a method for updating the database, PROVIDED you can get a copy of the Jeppesen NavData update file. It's possible you need the Waas version; that's all I have.
Using Jepp's JDM, choose to download the file, i.e. don't do a "Transfer to Device". It
I might have said this already in the forum, but just that you know, the GNS trainer lite v3.3 we are using for our GNS V2 is also compatible with the G500/600 Jeppesen database.

i have successfully bought an navdata-db at Jeppsen for an G600 without having an real GNS/GTN nor an aircraft.
