Would I need multiple Jeppesen subscriptions for 430/480/530 stack?

Good afternoon,

I noticed that in some newer aircraft, the avionics stack contains
two Garmin 430s or a combination of 430, 530 and/or 480. If I read
the Garmin product data correclty, each has an onboard Jeppesen

I guess the big question is does each unit require its own Jeppesen
subscription? Seems like this could get pretty expensive pretty

Thanks and best regards,

According to Jeppesen's Web site, you do need a special "Dual" subscription. Luckily, however, it doesn't appear to be twice the price as a single subscription!

Here's a page that describes their offerings for dual units:
