*Important Note about Avidyne EX-series NavData Updates on macOS Sonoma 14.0-14.3: Jeppesen is aware of an issue with macOS Sonoma 14.0-14.3 that can result in errors or SD card and USB thumb drive corruption during transfers when the uncommonly used FAT16 file system is used on SD cards and USB drives. To date, it is known that this issue with macOS Sonoma 14.0-14.3 results in errors or USB flash drive corruption during transfers for the Avidyne EX500, EX600, and EX5000 NavData. This issue no longer occurs in macOS Sonoma, as of version 14.4. Please refer to Support Article 10940 for more information.
