Updating or Upgrading Garmin GNS 530

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have run into a small problem when using my Garmin 530 in my Dornier Do228 (FSX). Understandably there seems to be isolated instances of some of the Garmin 530 data now being clearly out of date.

For example EGMD (Lydd) now has 2 ILS 'equipped' runways (5 and 23) yet Garmin's 530 RWY 5 has no ILS at all - RWY 23 is OK

Excuse my ignorance on the subject but is it possible to update the 530's database ?

Or failing that is it possible to swap the 530 for a more up to date GPS ?

Of course if neither is possible then it certainly is not the end of the world !

Has anyone any thoughts on this ?
