Default In Garmin Pilot?

Anyone know if the new 4.9.1 update is included in the Garmin Pilot 10.0.5 update?

Garmin Pilot allows access to download the GDL 39 software from our servers, it is not necessarily included in the Garmin Pilot software update in the same way G3X software is packaged. Any Garmin Pilot version that you have running on your phone or tablet should allow you to run the update.


Thanks,

Justin

Default Thanks

Justin
Thanks, was not sure how Pilot interacted for GDL 39 updates. I do not have great cell reception at my hanger, will there be a 796 update that will include the 4.9.1 firmware?

Todd/Bill, where did you get the update? When I try and access it using the provided link in a previous post, I get a message screen from Garmin, ? Software Information Currently Unavailable?.

At the moment, the update can only be installed using Garmin Pilot via a bluetooth connection directly with the GDL 39.

Thumbs up GDL-39 UPDATE

Dave

If you download the Garmin web updater and connect your 796 to it, it will download the 4.9.1 update and install it on your 796 which will update the GDL-39 once plugged in..

I just did mine and it worked like a charm..

Good luck

Bruno

Same goes for the aera 660. If the 660 is connected to the internet via wifi hotspot it will automatically prompt you to download the latest software which includes the GDL 39 update, kind of like other modern devices that flag updates and install with one click. The built-in internet connection is one of the aera 660's best feature. No more SD cards needed. Just wifi internet access.
