Re: Anyone have an issue with bent gear legs?

Hev you talked to Diamond yet? If not, call 519-457-4041 and ask them about the 2-degree max and see what they suggest. I thought you could even add another shim if needed to get the angle right. Diamond would certainly be the last word in what needs to be done to fix your misalignment.

Re: Garmin OnePak vs PilotPak

Can someone point me to the differences in map coverage between the "United States" and "Americas" options on the Garmin "One Pak"? I'm interested in knowing what marginal coverage of Canadian airspace (and airports?) is provided in the United States Package. A practic...

Re: Anyone have an issue with bent gear legs?

You can change the angle between the wheel and the gear leg much more than 2 degrees by rotating the shims, or installing them if you don't have them already. From your picture it looks to me like that is your problem, not a bent gear leg. My first DA40 had serious uneven tire wear - the inside edge...

Re: WTF moment - G1000 doesnt have published approach

This discussion caused me to check and see if my GNS units might have the same issue. They do not appear to. Though I only checked the RNAV 04 at KCDW, it loaded and activated fine, even though it's a questionable activity sitting in a hangar in central Oregon :D There is a bit of qualification, I ...

Re: WTF moment - G1000 doesnt have published approach

I also just noticed that back in 2016 Diamond released this Service Instruction SI40-155 where Diamond explains this problem, and then states at the end " This issue is resolved in the following software versions: ... G1000 GDU 15.0 ... ". Maybe we all need to start asking how we can get t...

Re: WTF moment - G1000 doesnt have published approach

Here is the list of excluded procedures from the Garmin website. Page 17 begins the list we have been discussing (more than a hundred RNAV approaches in the US). This problem was identified back in 2013 and was resolved in the 15.0 GDU software version. Here we are, 5 years later, still waiting for ...

Re: WTF moment - G1000 doesnt have published approach

I have this exact same problem at my local airport KROA with the RNAV GPS 24 approach, and I had the same WTF moment trying to load the (non-existent) approach after being assigned it. I probably followed the same path you did, calling Diamond and then Garmin, and finally was directed to SA 13.72 - ...
