Software and Service Bulletins for pilots
Improvements and new features are available for your Trig product through software updates. These can be carried out by an Approved Trig Dealer, or suitably qualified installer. If you would like advice about the suitability, or need to update your Trig unit, please contact your local Approved Trig Dealer. They will be able to help you and organise the upgrade of your avionics.
The current version of software installed in your Trig product will be shown on the display at initial power up. Software versions run numerically, the higher the number the more recent the release – so the latest software will always include all the features of earlier versions.
The archive folders within the sidebar contains older versions of software. Once you have viewed an archive page, use the Back Button on your browser to return to this page.
