Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Ok I agree it’s nice to have feature but far from being essential like ability to get spare parts which will definitely happen when legacy G1000 systems start to fail. Or even more trivially when there will be not enough memory space to store all plates because of rising number of RNAV approaches an...

Perhaps Visual Approaches will show up in future Diamond NXi software releases.
Probably in few years but then the hardware will be too weak to run bunch of new software features and the only solution will be to buy new aircraft.

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

It would be a big step forward if Diamond would cooperate with Garmin to put DA42 tdi's on parity with NGs and -VIs for hardware and software improvements. This is a flight safety issue would require very little, if any, additional time and investment by Diamond. I definitely agree with you because...

I’m sorry but I don’t understand the importance of this feature. Can you explain it a bit further?

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

It enables an easier path to ADS-B for those with existing WAAS Those with WAAS are not the problem because they already have newer base software (and probably hardware - I don’t know about other components but they at least have GIA63W). a path to add WAAS for others where currently not possible H...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

If Diamond would just produce a software update that included the latest G1000 base software version, I think that would fix most of the problems. How? And what problems would be fixed? Latest version of SW, that works on legacy G1000, works without any known problem (AFAIK). Otherwise, there would...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

I don't have a "legacy" G1000, or at least I hope not for awhile, and I don't fully understand the various variations of avionics configurations dating back to the original G1000 pre-WAAS configurations. If you have GIA63W (and not GIA64W) then you already have legacy avionics. Of course you're in ...

Re: Running at 90%

whereas (if I recall correctly) the Continental will provide full power only up to about 6000 feet. It’s actually 8000 ft by POH but in reality it’s usually 8500 or sometimes 9000 ft. Austro itself doesn’t do much better (actually it does the same on same FF); it’s better aerodynamics of -VI which ...

Re: Running at 90%

From data I collected during one year and 170 flight hours with my CD-155 engines, I can conclude that engines run at 100% with no problems in green area summer and winter, climb and cruise. Obviously, running at high loads means high consumption which is compensated with lower maintenance cost due ...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

I believe this is their carrot to drive sales of Austro engines to owners with timed-out Centurion engines. Not a pretty picture. It would be a carrot if they didn’t charge it over €400k plus VAT which is for private owner some €500k ($560k). I’m not sure how many owners find this to be acceptable....
