[Avionics Magazine 11-08-2016] Jeppesen has unveiled a new series of data bundle services that combine access across both general aviation avionics, including Garmin and Avidyne, and popular mobile application software. The new data bundles will be offered to general aviation pilots at a reduced cost, with key coverage areas included and the choice of two or four device installations, to meet individual pilot needs, according to an announcement from Jeppesen on the new avionics-apps data bundle.

The three new data bundles from Jeppesen include full Americas (North, Central and South America) coverage that eliminates the need for trip kits. Specifically, new avionics and coverage bundle options include:
• Garmin GTN or GNS/W navigator avionics and Garmin Pilot: Coverage areas include the United States (including Alaska), Canada, and full Americas with a single installation chart subscription, providing avionics and mobile app access.
• PilotPak for Garmin GTN (G500/600, G300, G3X), Garmin 1000 and Garmin 2000: Offers a two-device installation option, instead of the traditional four, to provide significant cost savings. Coverage options include the United States (including Alaska), Canada, and full Americas.
• FLEX Bundle: A new bundle service comprised of qualified combination of avionics from different manufacturers that configured in a single aircraft.
“Databases for avionics can be complex, especially with multiple avionics systems in one aircraft," said Reggie Arsenault, director, Jeppesen General Aviation Client Management. “Our new data bundle options for general aviation pilots will provide the coverages they need on the number of devices they use, at a price that is more affordable.”
