Easily find your Garmin avionics software version and System IDs using the Jeppesen Distribution Manager application and the SD card.

This information is crucial for placing your order correctly, and ensuring there are no issues between the data updates provided by Jeppesen and the data transfer into your avionics unit. It's important to know the software version of your avionics system when ordering updates to certain databases, such as the terrain data. New Garmin avionics systems, and software updates to existing systems will require that a System ID be embedded into the database, otherwise it cannot be loaded into the unit. The System ID must also be associated to your Jeppesen service if you are updating your data wirelessly using the Garmin Database Concierge and Flight Stream 510 MultiMediaCard.

Please have this information available when placing an order.
