Default Looking for Jeppesen Skybound 2 PCMCIA Software

Considering buying this hardware but I have not been able to find the
software to support it. Any leads on getting it?

Have you contacted Jeppesen? Since you have to buy the updates anyway,
they *should* give you the software for free or maybe even have it
available for download on their website. Their website navigation isn't
the best so it may take a call to customer service.

I finally called Jeppesen and they gave me the directions to find the
software. I probably should have been able to find it after all.

What's even stranger... I bought this HW off EBay a while back (and it
works well enough, for a beta type poorly designed high school
project). Anyway, on one of the calls to them, I was told to not use
the HW, but just plug the card in directly. The tech support claim was
that the HW was originally part of some big security thing, but is no
longer required. Indeed, it doesn't really seem to make any
difference.

All they really care about is that you have the SW subscription.

Plug the card into what?

Into the computer's PCMCIA slot, where you would normally plug the
SkyBound adapter.

There are no GPS data cards that fit into a standard PCMCIA slot
without a skybound adapter. The only other option besides the PCMCIA
adapter is the USB adapter. Have you tried it yet?

My GX-60 takes a standard (well, OLD standard) linear PCMCIA flash card
- 4 MB. It will plug into the SkyBound adapter, or directly into my
PC. Doesn't seem to make any difference to the SkyBound software which
I do. [And no, i haven't tried the newer USB version. It wasn't
available when Jepp first started offering the downloads.
