The programmer allows customers to transfer databases from flyGarmin.com to data cards more efficiently by offering improved performance as well as RoHS compliance. It provides greatly enhanced transfer speeds — up to 80 percent faster — ensuring customers spend less time in front of the computer.

The programmer is backwards compatible with previous Terrain data cards, so a new data card is not required. The programmer comes with a USB cable.

Pilots requiring Jeppesen aviation data updates for GNS 430/530 series and GNS 430W/530W series should note those databases can only be programmed by a Jeppesen Skybound USB programmer.

Excellent

  • By Miguel from Bay Shore NY USA on Sunday, October 14, 2018
  • Pros: Easy to use
  • Review: Excellent product.

Works great on Win10, but only on PC; won't work on Mac w/Fusion

  • By Chris from San Carlos CA USA on Thursday, May 24, 2018
  • Pros: Works as promised
  • Review: The product works as promised on Windows 10 PC.

    However, also as noted, can't work on Windows 10 on a Mac running VMware Fusion. The USB drivers don't seem to work, for whatever reason, and this is something Garmin says on its website as well. As a long-standing Fusion user, and someone who gets everything USB to work on the Mac, this is the first product I've seen that really does NOT work under Fusion.

    So if you have a PC, buy with confidence. If you only have a Mac, better find a PC before you buy.

Great tool

  • By Teresa on Tuesday, December 19, 2017
  • Pros: Works as advertised!
  • Review: This programming tool works on both the terrain and database cards for the Garmin. I was worried I would have to buy two different cables, but that wasn't the case. Yay!

aviation database programmer

  • Pros: it works
  • Review: The programmer works to keep the aviation database on the Garmin GNS530 up to date.

Everyone's Gonna Need This

  • By Doug from Boerne TX USA on Monday, April 10, 2017
  • Pros: Does supp data as well as Garmin aviation data
  • Review: Garmin is now offering the data for the 400/500 series units. They priced the Aviation data bundles with the Ostacles and Terrain for less than J-brand. You will need this programmer to program the cards from FlyGarmin.com.
