Re: G1000/NXi Evolution for Diamond Owners

Having just gotten my WAAS upgraded DA40-180 back I agree. I lost checklists in 321.22 and just regained them with 321.23. Excellent document, Dave! So much great G1000 information distilled into one document - thanks for putting that together. Only one minor correction - GDU 12.01 (DA40 XL s/w vers...

Re: G1000 Legacy & NXI Software Upgrades Announcement

Truly great work from those on DAN working with Diamond and Garmin - much appreciated - so glad I went through this particularly tough G1000 WAAS upgrade because some of the v15 features are really cool!

Hope to have my plane back soon!!!

Re: G1000 Legacy & NXi upgrade program

Status Update: Good News / Short Story - it is working now with the new Ws. Longer detailed story: Yesterday I was down at the shop and met the guy from Premiere (David who is very knowledgeable on these upgrades.) and they also had Tracy from Garmin on the line (supposedly their best person). So ea...

Re: G1000 Legacy & NXi upgrade program

Status Update: They brought in an expert from Premiere Texas to help today. Using my old GIA63s did not solve the issue. I keep telling the shop to really check their wiring and/or try my old cable as a test. DiamondDan, TomO - did they replace an ethernet cable from front to back with new lightning...

Re: G1000 Legacy & NXi upgrade program

Status Update: Everyone is stumped. Next step - they are putting back the old GIA63s and will attempt loading back 321.22 to isolate if the new GIA63Ws are the problem, wiring issues (upgrade required replacing ethernet with new lightning protected ethernet) or other TBD issue. If there is something...

Re: G1000 Legacy & NXi upgrade program

I agree that if you want the WAAS - get on the list now! I got on the original list when it was 25K installed and you had to go to the factory - but that never went anywhere - which is good because the folks on the board working with Diamond/Garmin have been doing great work for us all and I am grat...

I'm at Absolute Aero in Hayward, CA (KHWD) in the San Francisco Bay Area - 15 minute flight from my home field of KCCR. This is one of the shops Diamond authorized for the upgrade work.

Re: G1000 Legacy & NXi upgrade program

Update on my WAAS Upgrade - 2004 DA40 G1000 with KAP140. The shop has been having a heck of a time with it. As of earlier this week all hardware was installed and they could not get the new GIA63Ws to configure. Garmin had them remove the GIAs, load the base SW and then add back and configure the GI...
