I've searched the garmin website but cannot find any details. Can you point to a reference?

Bevan,

Go to http://ctflier.com/ and look under Avionics then General Avionics. You can download it there. It is not on the Garmin website. Nobody flying CT's knew about it and neither did the CT manufacturer.

Living near Garmin here in Oregon I was able to handcarry mine in and get one day turnaround.

The upgrade (at least for the 480) is free and can be performed in the field by an authorized service agent, provided the unit was already current.

There are also a number of other service bulletins outstanding. These require sending the unit back and installing a new GPS puck (which they provide).

Just got my SL-40 back from Garmin about a week ago. They made the repair on my new comm. I bought from another builder even though the announced period for free repair had passed.

Give Garmin a call, since your comm. is new I'm sure they will repair your for free too.

I'm not able to open the service bulletin PDF on the CT site- says I need to log in to view it and I'm not a member. Can someone please email me a copy?

This is it:

The one you posted in the cubcrafters link is the correct one; SB 921.

Anyone else have the experience of calling Garmin and being told that yes the SB applies to your radio, but that they will not issue an RMA to an individual, regardless of whether the SL30 is installed in an experimental, that I must go through an avionics shop to get an RMA?

Several on the CT forum had the same problem. It seemed to be determined by who you talked to. Those that talked to Frank got the run around. If they talked to Gary like I did then there was no problem.

Default Which date is correct?

The original post said the SB expires on 09/30/2010. The SB says the exp date is June 30. 2010 after which there is a surcharge.
