An altimeter does not measure altitude on the Garmin GPS device. The altimeter in the aircraft measures air pressure. The altimeter is calibrated to display a certain change in altitude based on a change in air pressure. For every inch of mercury pressure change, the altimeter displays a change of approx. 1000 ft. of altitude. The GPS does not use air pressure to determine altitude and is not subject to the pressure errors in determining altitude. Therefore, the GPS derived altitude is almost always more accurate than an altimeter. Since everyone uses a pressure-based system to determine altitude, it is integral to utilize a pressure sensitive altimeter to ensure required vertical separation.
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.
Negotiating the exchange price of a unit only limits the allowable repair cap for the core unit. Southeast Aerospace's exchange transactions are based on the return of economically repairable core unit. Once the core is received and evaluated, the core repair cost incurred by SEA cannot exceed 75% of the original exchange price. That is, it cannot cost SEA more than 75% of the original OH/SV exchange price collected from the customer. Therefore, when and if an SEA exchange price is discounted, there is a risk that additional charges may be assessed once the core is returned and evaluated.
