Overview

Garmin USB Aviation Data Card Programmer for the GNS series of products. Boasting improved performance and RoHS compliance (allowing global availability), this data card programmer enables customers to program Garmin Navigation Database, Obstacle and Terrain databases. If you're looking for Jeppesen aviation data updates, you need to purchase a Skybound USB programmer.

The data card programmer offers greatly enhanced transfer speeds, ensuring that dealers and customers alike spend less time in front of the computer. When transferring Terrain and Obstacle databases to GNS 430/530 WAAS and non-WAAS data cards, users can expect up to 80% faster transfer speeds. This data card programmer is backwards compatible with previous Terrain data cards, so a data card is not required.

You get used to computer hardware being plug and play - this isnt, you have to go to the Garmin website and download the drivers before it will work. Unfortunately the Garmin instructions for downloading database updates didnt tell me that. Once I got the drivers everything worked fine.
