Garmin Releases G3X Touch Software Version 8.2

On Friday, March 22 2019, Garmin launched version 8.2 for the G3X Touch family of avionics. Version 8.2 offers some general improvements to the system including support for the new GNX 375, the GAD 29B (in conjunction with the certification of the G3X Touch System), percent power display support for the Rotax 915 iS, and most notably brings the new FIS-B (ADS-B In) products that the FAA announced a few months ago to the Connext Bluetooth interface. Other small improvements have been made. If you’re an IFR pilot, the addition of the new FIS-B Products to Connext make the update worthwhile, but if you’re a VFR pilot, you might want to save yourself the logbook entry for the next update that Garmin brings.
