Avidyne has released R8.2.2 software for EX-5000 series MFDs. The software will be available only thru dealers and should take approximately 1 hour to install. 

  1. Software will be at no charge for all customers who installed R8.2.0 or R8.2.1. Avidyne will cover up to 2 labor hours under the normal warranty process.
  2. The software is included with the new purchase of an ADS-B In/Out solution from Avidyne.
  3. If a customer previously purchased an ADS-B In/Out solution from Avidyne the software will be provided at no additional charge.
  4. If a customer purchased only an ADS-B In solution from Avidyne then the software will be $500 MSRP. Normal Dealer software discounts apply.
  5. The software will be $999 MSRP for anyone who will not purchase an ADS-B solution thru Avidyne.
Your dealer should have these, but here are the part numbers for your reference:

850-00013-510, KIT, EX5000 COMPACT FLASH, 2G, RELEASE 8.2, PIPER PA46/PA34 (4 KNOB)

EX5000 equipped aircraft owners can upgrade to R8.2.2 to add display capability of FIS-B weather using Avidyne’s SkyTrax100B ADS-B IN receiver, and ADS-B Traffic using ARINC429/735 protocol. Avidyne IFD400 and IFD500 series GPSs and AXP340 or AXP322 transponder are available to provide ADS-B Out. Along with Avidyne’s SkyTrax100B ADS-B IN Receiver, R8.2.2 for EX-5000 Series MFDs adds compatibility with 3rd-party systems including Lynx NGT-9000, Garmin GTX345, FreeFlight RANGR-RX, or other Capstone/735-compatible ADS-B IN receivers.

Great news!  I know a lot of people will be happy!  Keep up the good work at supporting our systems!

Are there any screenshots as to what ADS-B radar and traffic look like on the Entegra?

Western Plains Aviation (KGXY) installed 8.2.2 yesterday in N852EW (SR-22 SN 0320).  It was great to fly back without the MFD quitting after 45 minutes.  The weather and traffic displays are very much appreciated.  Unfortunately, after the 8.2.2 installation no CMAX charts were available and I was unable to re-load them.  The error message said, "CMAX Data Update failed Error writing files."  That was very disappointing.  The NAVDATA worked OK.  Any ideas why the CMAX charts disappeared and can't be re-loaded?

In particular, do ADS-B traffic show with “stingers” showing target direction, or do they just display as diamonds with relative altitude, as Active Traffic targets do. This is documented one way in the release 8.2 guide, and another in the 8.2.1 release notes.

I contacted Jeppesen and after they re-set our subscription was able to successfully re-load our CMAX charts. We flew from KCOS to KHND and the MFD performed well.
