Anyone using Ultranav with multiple pilots/airplanes? If so, how do you manage the updates through ultranav and make sure every pilot has the updated versions on their personal computer? It seems to me that it would be a logistical problem getting and keeping every person on the same page.

Ultranav updates? I've beeen using Ultranav for over 10 years. Just how often do you think that the performance charts in the AFM change? Did you happen to mean JeppView?

Put the UltraNav on a palm pilot and leave the palm pilot in the A/C. I have never used UltraNav on my PC.

?

Then there should be no problems. I have never used it. I was thinking they would update the software on a regular basis not the performance charts. Anyway, it should be a non-issue. Thanks for the replies.

They no longer offer their software for PDA's.. It now requires a full version of Windows to operate.

FYI...for those of you fortunate enough to be using ARINC Direct for your flight planning/filing/datalink, they have a new airport analysis program that is very good. It is provided by a vendor called APG that also provides the data to part 121 and 135 operators. They have a number of "special procedures" developed for those challenging airports such as Aspen,etc.

Bummer. That was only way it was convenient. This is what we did in our Astra when I used to use it.

If you use a PDA with windows CE. ultranav will work on them or if the PDA has Palm OS 4 and Below.

There's another company out there that has software that runs on PDAs and Palm Tops. I don't remember right off hand their name, but I understand they've also got a pretty useful performance program. If any of you are interested I'll look around for their info.

I found the website: www.cavucompanies.com

I've never used their program, but I understand it's OK.

This didn't seem right, but maybe I am wrong. I went to cavu's website and as I was trolling through the site, I clicked on "Aircraft System DVDs". Under this section Cavu claimes the following about the B757 and B767; '[font=arial, Arial, Helvetica][size=-1]Although the B-757 and B-767 are separate type ratings, the systems are remarkably similar'[/size][/font]. Is that true? I thought the 75 and 76 were the same type rating! It then goes on and instructs you to order with confidence! WTF?????? Anyone know if I am mistaken? If they are in fact the same type and Cavu states differently, then I would not buy a thing from them as this would indicate they do not know their own subject matter. That would be a pretty big mistake to make. Please Advise.

Does anyone still have a copy of the Lear 35 UltraNav software for the Palm??? I am in desperate need of the Palm program only and they won't sell it anymore as previously discussed. Please PM me.

The aircraft's type cert. are different, but the pilot type rating is the same. Maybe that's what they were saying.
