Known Errors / News - 28th February 2017
- Version 5.4 incorporates all bug fixes to date, and is built on Win 10 by VS2015. The VC redistributable is included so that it does not have to be compiled into every executable.
- A reminder to everyone that if your unit supports the AirSports database, then it is included in the navdata .taw file. A normal Garmin update would transfer it automatically, and indeed the Aera500 does not mention it in its list of databases, but with AviaDBM you have to upload it separately. GPS_USB will do this if you choose Write TAWs on a navdata .taw file, when it will offer the AirSports section.
- I have just heard that uploads via USB3 ports are failing, both firmware and navdata. One work-around is to use a USB2 hub.
- Version 5.4.1 cures many of the anomolies of Win10/VS2015, particularly the change of current working directory after opening a file. This used to be automatic, but now has to have explicit code to change to the directory holding the opened file.
