But for my newer 2017 G1000 NXi DA62, I still can't install a GTX345R to replace my GTX335R because the GTX345R is not certified for this aircraft, and there's no software yet available for an NXi DA62 that integrates with the GTX345R.

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

You guys worry to much. Fly your airplanes or sell them and forget about it. Your not going to get the support you so stridently hope for.
