Garmin at Sun ‘n Fun, Day 3


IMG_5313IMG_5315 It's day three of Sun 'n Fun and our booth traffic has been increasing as the show nears the weekend. If you're at the show, you should know that you can always stop by for a free firmware update to your portable aviation GPS. If you need tp update one of the databases (like SafeTaxi, AOPA, obstacles, terrain, etc), you can visit any of our dealers for an update or you can download the database from In addition, we've announced a new bundled pricing program for aviation databases. You receive a substantial discount when you purchase our databases in bulk.

Flying magazine goes into even greater detail about the bundled database program on their blog. " I spoke with a Garmin employee involved in the process who said
that figuring out just how to bundle these databases took the better
part of a year. Why so complicated? The biggest reason is, Garmin
doesn't control all the databases. It works with several outside
suppliers, including Jeppesen and AOPA, on the data, so Garmin can't
unilaterally cut prices. It has to work with its partners. The XM
subscription, already done separately, will remain so. The work has paid off, though. A 50 percent reduction is a big deal, and customers will benefit."

So as you can see, this is a tremendous savings. We've made several bundled options, so this chart may be helpful as you determine which bundle is right for you. Visit when you're ready to make a database purchase.
