Garmin adds Europe to avionics database
European customers now have an all-Garmin database solution for their avionics systems.

Garmin has expanded coverage of its navigation database to include Europe. Previously available to aircraft owners and operators in the Americas, the navigation database now delivers a trusted and convenient option for European customers to incorporate the latest aviation navigation information in their Garmin avionics. Offered for integrated flight decks, navigators, flight displays and portables, the launch for Europe introduces cost-effective ways to purchase database updates.

"The expansion of the navigation database to include European data has been a multi-year goal of ours, and we are thrilled to now offer European customers an all-Garmin database solution for their avionics systems. Our experienced global team is dedicated to providing aviators with the highest quality data, so our customers can fly with robust, yet cost-effective database solutions," says Carl Wolf, vice president of aviation sales and marketing.

The navigation database for Europe provides foundational information needed for precise GPS navigation throughout departure, enroute, arrival and approach. Coverage is available in over 35 countries and more than 3,400 airports, including enroute and airspace data, instrument procedures, frequencies and airport information. Customers will be able to choose from several flexible purchase options ranging from a single product or update subscription to comprehensive aircraft bundled subscriptions. New to European customers, single device bundles and OnePak annual subscriptions can offer a simple, cost-effective option to update navigation data and other databases, such as terrain, obstacles, airport directory, SafeTaxi and FliteCharts.

Garmin's database concierge and PlaneSync connected aircraft management system3 can further simplify database updates. Database concierge allows pilots to download updates to their Pilot app and wirelessly transfer to their compatible avionics via compatible mobile device. Alternatively, the PlaneSync connected aircraft management system provides automatic database updates to compatible avionics over 4G LTE or Wi-Fi via Garmin's GDL 60 datalink4.
