Frequently asked questions

Which ACD-57 functions require a database, how is the database updated?

The display of COM station names and the NEAREST station function require a database. For safety reasons the database must be valid and up-to-date.

The database is stored on a microSD memory card. In order to access the database, the card has to be permanently inserted into ACD-57. A microSD memory card is supplied with the unit.

Included with delivery are two years of free database updates. To obtain a valid database, a coupon code that is supplied with the unit has to be entered below together with the device’s serial number.

After this two year period, database update entitleme can be purchased online at AIR STORE. We aim at low costs. The price for database updates covers the cost for maintaining the database and it’s update infrastructure.

Where can I get the station database? How is the process?

With the purchase of a new AIR Control Display, you are entitled to free station database updates in a two year period. A coupon code is included with the unit, printed onto a card.

To purchase new station database update entitlements after these two years, please visit AIR STORE online. After your purchase, you will receive a new coupon code via eMail.

What are software licenses, when do I need them, and why do you require them?

In order to “unlock” some of the functions ACD-57 offers, a license code has to be purchased from us and entered into the device once. These functions are:

  • Control of TQ KRT COM Systems
  • Control of BECKER 62XX COM Systems
  • Altimeter function 

Considering its capabilities, ACD-57 is offered at a cheap price. A software license model ensures that ACD-57 can be offered at favorable prices to standard users while users with special function requirements can purchase functions separately. Without licenses, all users were to pay for development costs of special functions they may not need. The functionality of ACD-57 can be extended through licenses at any time, also after installation and while already being in service.

At AIR STORE we offer bundles of ACD-57 together with TQ or BECKER radios without additional costs for the included software licenses.
