How do I update nav-data for the GNS530?

Recommended Posts

I have a Navigraph subscription, and I've manually set up various GPS data-folders in their downloader to supply various planes I have with data (including a X-Plane\Custom Data\GNS430 folder), but the Saab's GNS530 still says its nav-data is from November 2016. How can I update this?

Let me try this again:

  1. What type of data-source should I use?
  2. What folder should it point to?

See attached image of what I already have set up, and please advice from there.

Pretty sure it's just the XP11 built-in GPS using XP11 navdata. Maybe double-check the X-Plane 11 directory is set properly and your XP11/Custom Data/cycle_info.txt shows that is has actually been updated?

Sorry for the late reply.  As mentioned above, it's just the stock X Plane GPS.  Nothing special about it.

So, since my XP11 data is up to date, it's just the date-info on the GPS that isn't reporting the actual date for the AIRAC? My cycle_info.txt says 1810, so I guess it's all right ;)
