Citation S550 equipped with: Transponders MST-67A 066-01143-2101. Chance to update to ES?

Garmin GPS400. Chance to update software to WAAS? Or maybe to replace with a GPS400W and link it with transponders? - FMS UNS-1L SCN 803.1. Citation Mustang C510 equipped with G1000 Integrated Flight Deck. It is a 2008 plane.

What can I do to get ADS-B at an affordable price?

A: Since the aircraft are operated in Spain, what region or ADS-B spec do you need to meet? (i.e. USA, DO-260B?)

Without knowing exactly what ADS-B requirement or mandate you might be trying to comply with, I can only provide information relative to what we know here in the USA in reference to ADS-B for Part 25 aircraft.

For the Citation 550, the MST-67A will be superseded by the MST-100B if/when Honeywell can produce and certify the MST-100B. I have attached the only details that we currently have on the MST-100B. Honeywell has not even released pricing on this unit yet, however, ideally it would be an ideal solution ultimately since it is said to be plug and play with the MST-67A. With a WAAS GPS interfaced it would meet all ADS-B mandates. Also, keep in mind, that your CAS-67 can be upgraded fairly easily to Change 7.1 via Honeywell sales bulletin upgrading the TPU-67A processor to the TPU-67B. There is a company that offers some STCs for Part 25 aircraft if your region requires an STC for the 7.1 upgrade - http://www.prostaraviation.com/

If the MST-100B does not pan out for some reason and/or Honeywell keeps delaying its release, then there is a company named Jettech that has released Garmin GTX 3000ES ADS-B capable transponder to its existing STC covering Garmin GTN install on Citation and Citation Jet aircraft equipped with TCAS II. In addition, the company amended its Garmin GTN autopilot coupled LPV FAA STC for the Citation 500 series to include all Primus 1000 equipped Bravo, Ultra, Encore and Excel aircraft. They do not have much information on their website about the ADS-B STC but I recently learned about it at the AEA convention last week - http://jettechllc.net/index.html

Regardless of what direction you might go in, you should most likely get your GPS-400 upgraded to the GPS-400W while Garmin is still offering the upgrade. It is relatively inexpensive at around $3000 USD. Most FANS type systems will require WAAS GPS input or accuracy ultimately. Plus, Garmin's WAAS interface tis very compatible with most ADS-B solutions. Regarding the Citation Mustang C510 equipped with G1000, Garmin is still working on this solution. We assume it will include the GTX-3000 transponder(s) as this aircraft will require a 1090 MHz, (not 978 MHz UAT) system. I would continue to monitor Garmin's website for announcements relating to the G1000.

Traffic can be displayed in two different map views on the 400 and 500 series units . The thumbnail view is always in a track-up reference while the map view can be in either a track-up or north-up reference. To see traffic simultaneously on the map and on the thumbnail, the orientation of the map must be set to track-up. Otherwise, traffic will only be shown on the map and the thumbnail will say “See Map”.

The navigation database is not available to update on any of the Garmin PC trainers. The database currently installed in the trainer is the database it is limited to. For information regarding an update on a portable aviation GPS or panel mount aviation GPS, please visit www.flygarmin.com

The Jeppesen navigational data card and the terrain/obstacle card may look the same but they are very different internally. Because of that, they require two card programmers, one for the Jeppesen data card and one for the terrain/obstacle card. The card programmer for the terrain/obstacle card can be purchased at https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=1190 or by contacting Garmin Aviation Customer Support at http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/us/support/supportcontact#fragment-2.

 

The W (WAAS) systems have the same capabilities as the 400/500 systems and more. With the WAAS signal being acquired, the GPS can give vertical guidance to a runway similar to an ILS glide slope indication. WAAS units have added display capability when connected to a GDL-69(A) XM Satellite weather/radio receiver. W units also have additional ARINC 424 leg types to guide a compatible autopilot through procedure turns and published holds.

 

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.

 

No. Since the Garmin GPS 400 is the GPS only version of the GNS 430 GPS/Nav/Comm, it only contains the annunciators for message, waypoint, Auto (GPS AUTO mode of operation), OBS (GPS OBS mode of operation), terminal, approach, and integrity (for position error). Since the GPS 400 does not contain the VOR/LOC/Glideslope portion of the GNS-430, the CDI source select button is omitted as well as the VLOC/GPS annunciator.
As a dealer for an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), it is required to commit to a dealership agreement. Garmin's dealer agreement states that certain TSO'd products must be installed by the dealer for the factory warranty to be valid. There are generally 2 reasons for this policy. First, the OEM wants to minimize their liability risk by assuring their equipment is installed by factory trained and knowledgeable technicians. Second, Garmin wishes to maintain their products integrity by making sure the product is installed and operating properly so the customer is satisfied with the performance. Avionics installations and interfacing can sometimes be very complex. It is very important that pilots, aircraft owners and operators ensure installations are performed by skilled, experienced technical personnel to provide the safest flying environment and experience.
There are quite a few changes and issues that need to be addressed in reference to upgrading/modifying a GNS-400/500 series unit to include WAAS capability. It is strongly suggested that you go through an authorized Garmin dealer who has performed this modification/upgrade previously.

There are several installation and certification issues including review of the STC approval from Garmin. This STC includes appendices detailing the approved equipment that can be interfaced to the WAAS capable units as well as approved installation diagrams for these interfaces.

The upgrade from Garmin includes the necessary updating of the unit, WAAS antenna, and new IFR-W Jeppesen database. The existing GPS antenna is replaced with the WAAS antenna. This WAAS antenna utilizes the same mounting holes however it should be noted that it is physically larger than the original GA-56 GPS antenna that was included with all GNS-400/500 series units. Also, in regards to the antenna installation, RG-142B or RG-400 coaxial cable must be used.

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.
The hardware and software upgrade for WAAS to the classic GNS-400/500 series navigators adds FAA TSO C146a Gamma-3 certification. This upgrade and certification enables pilots to fly Lateral-Precision with Vertical guidance approaches and receive GPS navigation via the Wide Area Augmentation System.
Yes, some are noticeable and some are minor. The WAAS upgrade to the GNS-400/500 series units WAAS upgrade includes a faster 5Htz update rate on the GPS signal. Therefore, the GPS receiver in the unit is extracting GPS information 5 times per second instead of 1 time per second as with original units.

If the terrain advisory feature is installed on the 400/500 series unit, then the terrain information will have a higher resolution.

When the GDL69 datalink is interfaced to the WAAS upgraded units, the weather will cover the entire USA instead of just 250 miles. METARS are included in the waypoint section making it easier to see weather information for a particular destination. Installations using the GDL69A with music will now be able to view the title and artist name on the GNS display.

Lastly, the WAAS upgrade provides the ability to fly curved flight paths with a roll steering autopilot for pilots who wish to utilize DME arcs or full approaches.

The WAAS upgrade for the GNS-400/500 series units is not a 'plug and play' upgrade. There are several installation, certification, and operational subjects that must be adhered to before a proper WAAS upgrade can be completed.

For aircraft with dual GNS-400/500 series units, both units must be upgraded for the crossfill function to operate. A WAAS upgraded 400/500 series unit will not crossfill to a non-WAAS 400/500 series unit.

One subject that many people upgrading to WAAS may overlook involves the GPS navigators distance from the pilot's primary field of view. The original GNS-400/500 series installation guidelines only provided general suggested guidelines for the distance of the unit from the pilot's primary view. Page 2- of the WAAS GNS-400/500 installation instructions is very specific in regards to the suggested guidelines for this distance. The left edge of the GNS unit should be no more than 11.8 inches from the centerline of the pilot's field of view. The 500 series units allow 12.1 inches. Vertically, the top of the GNS unit cannot be lower than the bottom edge of the primary flight instruments. If these measurements are exceeded then an additional annunciator may need to be installed near the pilot's primary field of view.

There are several wiring changes that need to be made to make the Bendix King KAP-140 / KFC-225 autopilots and original Sandel SN3308 EHSI completely compatible with the WAAS upgraded units. Certain features regarding proper navigation deviation will not function properly unless wiring changes are made in the aircraft. In addition, aircraft with more recent glass cockpit technology (e.g. EX5000 and G1000) have not been completely addressed for the WAAS upgrades.

In order to ensure that you receive the most accurate and realistic quotation for this WAAS upgrade, we strongly suggest that you contact our Installation Department for further assistance.

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.

Yes, the Garmin GNS400/500 systems meet RNP5 airspace (BRNAV) requirements of AC 90-96 and in accordance with AC 20-138, and JAA AMJ 20X2 Leaflet 2 Revision 1, provided it is receiving usable navigation information from the GPS receiver.

The Garmin HTAWS or Helicopter Terrain Awareness is only available for Garmin WAAS GPS receivers. The added GPS integrity, quality, and performance that WAAS GPS provides is needed to facilitate the helicopter terrain functions. Therefore, an original GNS430, GNC420, GPS400, GNS530, or GPS-500 navigator must be upgraded to WAAS or "W" status before HTAWS can be incorporated.

See this PDF document for a detailed listing of currently available IFR GPS systems and a brief comparison.

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.
