In this post I will highlight time saving automation features of Data Manger.
What is Data Manager?
Seattle Avionics Data Manager is a software application (Windows OS) for downloading and transferring of Seattle Avionics ChartData to the data card of your avionic. This includes ChartData for Aspen MFD, Bendix King KSN\AV8OR ACE\AV8OR HH, Dynon Avionics SkyView, GRT Horizon HX/HXr, Advanced Flight Systems AF-5xxx, and AvMap EKP V.
What are Data Manager automation features?
Imagine if you will, on your next flight if all you had to do was swap data cards. No waiting for data to be download from the internet. No waiting for data to be copied to the data card. What if this could be done while-you-sleep dreaming about airplanes? Sound too good to be true? Read on.
Data Manager starts every time when Windows starts; unless you have disabled that feature under Options. Data Manager was designed to run in the background, checking for updates once-an-hour. When Data Manager finds new data, it will *automatically* download only the data that has changed from the last-cycle to the local PC hard drive.
But wait there’s more! It gets even better, leave a extra data card in the computer, Data Manager will *automatically* update that too!
You can install Data Manager on up to 5 computers. Run a copy of Data Manager at the office, home, laptop, and hangar.
All this convenience is built right into Data Manager is enabled by default. If you let your computer go to sleep, turn it on about 72 hours before the next Cycle. You can let the display sleep as its not required.
ChartData updates follow the same 28 Day Cycle as the FAA. Normally data is released 48 to 72 hours before the 28 Day Effective Date.
Follow these easy steps and you’ll never have to wait for data again.
