Customer Question

I am having problems with the databases in my G1000, the system reports, "DB mismatch", "Xtalk Off" in the Alerts section.
This happened after I programmed the latest (Aug 18-Sep 15) cycle with the Americas in the Active, and Transatlantic in the Standby.
I have tried separately programming PFD1 and PFD2, but the problem remains!
Thanks, ***** *****

Hi Paul,
My name is***** will try my best to help you with your question.

Expert:  ElectronicsPete replied 11 months ago.

These alerts indicate that the PFD and MFD have different aviation, basemap, terrain or obstacle database versions installed.
More information on which database is mismatched should be included with the alert.
You will need to try installing the correct database type in both displays once the mismatch has been identified.

Kindly rate my service 5 stars at the top of your question page if my answer worked so I am rewarded for my time; tips appreciated :)
