Re: Garmin 430 WAAS Upgrade for M20J

Final update in this saga - Garmin has finally released Software Version 3.0 that fixes the wind calc and also makes this a full standalone WAAS navigator. I stopped by the local avionics shop last week and they had just received the software from Garmin - I was their first guinea pig - the update went well and only took them about 30 minutes. You get updated software and a whole new POH supplement that removes all the prior restrictions. Flight testing was excellent - one thing that impressed me was the lead in on a direct entry hold - the box provide course reversal guidance and track to intercept the inbound course pretty cool.
