The Jeppesen Skybound G2 USB Adapter is our newest version compatible with our downloadable Garmin NavData subscriptions. This item is the USB ADAPTER ONLY. NavData subscription services and Garmin navigation cards are sold separately.
It works and does what its supposed to. You need a subscription from Jeppesen which you can only get over the phone. But the nav database is now up to date.
Works lovely with the Jeppensen cards.
Worked exactly as advertised. Downloaded Jepp data to card for 530W.
Works like the other adapter, however you must reinstall Jeppesen Distribution Manager before using the orange label G2 adapter.
Worked great with the Jeppesen data manager on my MacBook Air
worked as advertised to update the nav data card for a garmin GNS 430, using a mac desktop computer. jeppesen software worked well enough 4 stars because the whole process is tedious. cannot purchase the updated online, have to call jeppesen. I spent quite a while on the website before realizing this-- it would be easy for jeppesen to put this information on their site.
Shipping a bit slower than expected, but maybe Amazon has me spoiled. Loading worked as advertised on my Mac, and GPS says itâ€™s now up to date.
I have the skybound working fine on my Windows 7 machine. It can be confusing because the card feels like it fits in either direction, but only one works. This adapter is ONLY for the data card, not terrain or obstacle.
Does not fit GNS 480 with compact flash card
