Post New Garmin Navigation Database & Database Bundle Options

We are excited to announce the availability of the new Garmin Navigation Database and some new database bundle options. The Garmin Navigation Database brings improved database coverage to your G3X or G3X Touch system and lowers the cost of annual database subscriptions for compatible Garmin panel mount GPS units such as GNS 430W/530W and GTN series. Initial coverage is limited to North America.

Some key benefits of this new database. For example, updating US navigation data for a GNS 430W/530W or GTN product used to cost a minimum of $465/yr. The new Garmin Navigation Database is available for $299/yr

For G3X or G3X Touch customers in the US, the Garmin Navigation Database improves upon our low cost US VFR navigation database. It includes limited instrument procedure waypoints (e.g. FAF to the runway), as well as additional frequencies and airport data customers were missing in our VFR database. In other words, our $149.99/yr US Database Bundle just got an upgrade without an up charge!

For a complete listing of database options, please visit our fly.Garmin.com website and visit the Database and Bundle Pricing section.

G3X / G3X Touch Database Bundles
  • US Mini Database Bundle, $49.99/yr - US VFR Navigation Data, Terrain, Obstacles, and SafeTaxi databases
  • US Database Bundle, $149.95/yr - Garmin Navigation, Obstacles, SafeTaxi, Airport Directory, FliteCharts, IFR/VFR Charts, and Terrain databases
  • Canada Database Bundle, $149.95/yr - Garmin Navigation, Obstacles, SafeTaxi, FliteCharts, IFR/VFR Charts, and Terrain databases
  • North America Database Bundle, $199.95/yr - Garmin Navigation, Obstacles, SafeTaxi, Airport Directory, FliteCharts, IFR/VFR Charts, and Terrain databases


Annual Navigation Database Subscriptions for GNS 430W/530W and GTN Series

  • Garmin Navigation Database - United States, $299.00/yr
  • Garmin Navigation Database - Canada, $299.00/yr
  • Garmin Navigation Database - Americas North, $399.00/yr

Hope to see you all at our booth at Oshkosh!


Thanks,
Brian

The price drop on the GNS subscription is appreciated.

Question: Has there been consideration for licensing to the tail number instead of the device? I have a 430W and 696 in my plane.

Great news, especially on the GTN. But wouldn't you know it, after procrastinating for months, I bit the bullet last month and purchased the $465 update.

Oh well, the renewal will be cheaper next year.

We do offer what we call "OnePak" subscriptions which cover all compatible devices in the aircraft. In addition to panel mount avionics such as the GNS 430W/530W and GTN series, OnePaks include databases for compatible portables, such as the 696, and an upgrade of your Garmin Pilot subscription to IFR Premium. It will depend on how many and which devices you are planning to keep up to date whether individual subscriptions or a OnePak subscription will be more cost effective.

The Database and Bundle Pricing tool will link you to additional details once you select the product of interest.

Thanks,
Brian

Seems like spending that money on upgrades would solve some issues no?

Glad you mentioned it Marc! If you haven't already checked on our website, G900X is also eligible for the Garmin Navigation database and OnePak subscriptions.

Thanks!
Brian

Brian, does this include the GNS-480? Your post references "GNS" devices without distinction, but I cannot find the GNS-480 in the list of avionics to select in my account, nor in the list at the "Database and Bundle Pricing" link in the first post.

No. Unfortunately, there are technical limitations that prevent us from supporting every aviation product. The complete list of compatible avionics from our press release:

The Garmin Navigation Database bundles, single navigator bundles and OnePaks are compatible with the following certified avionics:
  • GTN 6XX/7XX touchscreen navigators
  • GNS 4XXW/5XXW navigators
  • G500/G600/G500H glass flight displays
  • G1000®, G2000®, G3000® and G5000® Integrated Flight Decks

Compatibility is also extended to the following portables and experimental displays:
  • G3X™, G3X Touch and G900X® glass flight displays
  • aera® 660
  • aera 795/796 series
  • aera 500 series
  • GPSMAP® 696

Thanks,
Brian
