Easy Updates


One of the great things about experimental avionics has always been the ease of doing software updates – and the fact that most software updates bring us enhanced features well beyond what we might have been possible a few years ago. Add to that the fact that many of the software features and operational functionality we enjoy is beyond what our certified brethren can get as the icing on the cake.  This is true for experimental EFISs, radios, and other electronic devices – but until recently, the same could not be said for the Certified IFR navigation devices we install in order to be legal while flying in the modern ATC system. Certified boxes had to be serviced and upgraded by certified technicians in certified repair stations, no matter what type of aircraft in which they were installed. Continue reading "Easy Updates"
