The 400/500W units with WAAS capability offer many new features and enhancements over the classic models. Some enhancements include WAAS enable GPS antenna, receiver, and software. The 400W/500W series units comply with WAAS TSO C146a and include hardware upgrades with a faster micro-processor. A terrain database for terrain awareness is included a standard feature. Most importantly, the WAAS GPS receiver allows pilots to use the GNS-400W/500W units for primary navigation and vertical guidance for LPV, L/VNAV, and LNAV+V approaches.

For a complete summary of the feature changes and enhancements, click Here.
In short, WAAS approach-capable GPS units provide lateral and vertical guidance to many airports that have never had a precision approach. As of Feb. 2007, there are 640 GPS-based LPV approaches with minimums as low as 200 feet and 1/2 mile visibility. There are also over 1000 LNAV/VNAV approaches that provide vertical guidance with WAAS capable GPS units. There are also 1000s of other approaches with advisory vertical guidance. More and more approaches are being added each month.
Yes, but please note the following considerations.

For the S-Tec System 20 or 40, these systems are roll axis only. However, if equipped with a GPSS converter, these systems will follow the lateral steering commands from the GPS for a WAAS approach. Vertical guidance is pilot controlled.

For the S-Tec System 30 or 50, these systems are roll axis and altitude hold only. However, with a GPSS converter, these systems will follow the lateral steering commands from the GPS for a WAAS approach. Vertical guidance is pilot controlled.

For the Systems 55, 55X, 60-2, 60PSS, or 65, these systems will track the lateral deviation from the GPS navigator in the Approach (APR) mode and the vertical deviation in the Glideslope (GS) mode. If you are using a 55X or other autopilot systems equipped with a GPSS converter, they will not couple to a WAAS approach in GPSS mode. To follow both the vertical and horizontal deviations of a WAAS approach, the autopilot must be in Approach (APR) mode and Glideslope (GS) mode. The 60PSS system is pitch axis only and will follow the vertical deviation in Glideslope (GS) mode.
Under certain conditions, the Garmin 400W/500W series units will not provide serial heading information to the L3 WX-500 Stormscope. Even if the WX-500 unit is wired for synchro heading, there may be issues with the WX-500, GDL-69 datalink, and crossfill between two Garmin units. Also, some issues have been encountered with the COM flip/flop key not switching between the active and standby frequencies. As of 8/20/07, Garmin plans to resolve these issue with the next software release. The software upgrade should be able to be completed at your local Garmin authorized facility.
At this time, the Garmin 400W/500W series WAAS units are approved for interface to the following EFIS systems:

Honeywell EFIS 40/50 with the SG 465 symbol generator with the following limitation: No vertical guidance is provided for GPS approaches.

Sandel SN3308 with the following limitation: GPS lateral and vertical guidance is provided using the analog interface.

Sandel SN3500 with the following limitation: Vertical guidance is provided for GPS approaches.

This is specified in the latest Garmin 400W series installation manual P/N 190-00356-02 Rev. C, dated April 2007.

For handheld GPS receivers, database updates can be ordered and downloaded directly through Garmin's Internet site.

For panel mount GPS receivers, all database cards and computer downloads (if applicable) must be ordered through Jeppesen. Contact Jeppesen at www.jeppesen.com for more information.

The Garmin GNS400/500 series units require setup and configuration before proper function and use. The system does not utilize a configuration module to allow easy removal and replacement of units while retaining the programmed configuration information. Therefore, if you are exchanging units in an aircraft, then you must have record of the configuration parameters to reprogram into the replacement unit.
There is some confusion in the avionics industry relating to the various terms used for terrain awareness, terrain advisory, and terrain alerting systems. Not all terrain systems are certified to Class A or B TAWS standards specified in FAA TSO C147b. If a terrain system is certified and approved to FAA TAWS standards, then the manufacturer will specifically use the term "TAWS" and/or "Class A/B TAWS". In most if not all cases, the term "terrain advisory" should not be understood to indicate "TAWS" or imply the product meets TSO C147b.
Newly Overhauled parts obtained from Garmin are designated with an N in their part number. This usually follows the 010- in the part number. As with most Garmin 010 part numbers, the N part numbers are for ordering purposes only and do not actually appear on the dataplate of the unit.
No, Garmin does not offer an upgrade to incorporate the 16 watt comm. (i.e. "A" version) into the GNS-430/530 and GNS-430W/530W units.
