Default Garmin G3X Touch Software 8.72 Now Available 9/9/2020

Hello,

We released G3X Touch Version 8.72 to the software download area today. Please note from the list at the bottom that many system LRU's have new software. After updating the software in the PFD1 with the SD card, the display will reset, and at that time it is best to hold down on the Menu button while it starts up in Configuration mode. Go to the System Information page on the PFD1 and watch all devices completing the software update before taking the PFD1 out of configuration mode and verifying proper operation for the updated system.

There are a number of new features included in this update, as well some behind the scenes improvements to improve system function and reliability.

Includes new GMA 245 software which resolves Bluetooth connectivity issues seen in some installations.

Adds support for 2 additional FIS-B Weather Products, Graphical AIRMETS, and Center Weather Advisory. These are only available over a Bluetooth connection at this time. Serial datapath support will be included for these 2 newer products in addition to several others in a future update.







A new EIS configuration setting can be found by selecting the Display menu in Configuration Mode. EIS / Engine Page Layout affects the behavior of the EIS Strip. When set to Combined the EIS Strip will remain dynamic, and the layout of the strip will vary based on whether or not the ENG tab is open. This is consistent with the way the system has operated in the past. If the setting is toggled to Separate, the EIS Strip Layout remains unchanged and does not respond to the presence of the ENG Menu. The system will default to Combined upon the completion of the software update.
