http://www.jeppesen.com is the only vendor for database updates for the Garmin 430. They will send you a kit with the card writer. It plugs into the USB port of a computer running Microsoft Windows XP or any newer version of Windows. Does it work well? A flight school might use the program and card writer 20 times each month.
