Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Unfortunately another proof that even the newest Diamonds are susceptible to long waiting for the upgrades with lack of consistent information from DAI.

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

The reality is that the G1000 is a 15yr old computer, irrespective of when it was installed. There are limits on what you can expect from a 15yr old computer. That's true, but all most of us are asking for is the latest release of the software which can be run on our obsolete hardware - same as is ...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Years ago I had the Garmin weather radar WX68 installed into my DA42 TDI KAP140. The old Garmin software 370.22 was (is) not capable to overlay the radar echoes onto the navigation map (vice versa, this feature is included in the more recent software releases for the NG only). IIRC you posted the p...

I hope it will be at reasonable price whatever it includes.

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

I got info that Diamond would very soon announce proposals for upgrade paths. Let’s hope this will be aligned with our expectations.

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Continental has more to gain than Garmin considering the small size of the fleet. Well, I don’t know what’s small or big fleet in GA terms but we have 132 aircrafts on our list and probably more than 250 aircrafts are affected. BTW Diamond earned some $100 million on these aircrafts. I believe that...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

I added your aircraft to the table although I didn't know all the details (serial number, software version and autopilot).

Re: Path to ADS-B & WAAS for older DA40s

As you might know, we started a petition here https://www.diamondaviators.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=72797#p72797 aimed to get Diamond's attention to this topic which affects many owners. As an owner of the IP rights to G1000 software, Diamond is solely responsible for missing the upgrade path for ma...

Re: DA42 prop overhaul

I paid €17k for two Scimitar props (MT kept old blades) including rebuilding TKS installation when I was replacing engines.

Re: KAP140

It's more likely that you'll have WAAS if you have GFC700. AFAIK there are very few GFC700 installed in non-WAAS DA42 and very few KAP140 upgraded to WAAS. GFC700 has stronger servos that are less likely to fail. DA42 with KAP140 will probably be less expensive but not only because of autopilot - i...
