The following instructions are for customers downloading their Navigation Database
from UniNet onto a 3.5” floppy disk.
Getting Started
 Access UniNet at https://secure.uasc.com/uninet/
 For questions concerning a UniNet account or Navigation Database subscription
please contact Universal Avionics Systems Corporation with the account
information.
 These instructions are written using the Internet Explorer browser. Procedures
may vary using other Internet browsers.
 Microsoft® Windows® is required for downloading data through UniNet. Apple
Mac computers can be used only when emulating Microsoft Windows. Consult the
computer user’s guide.
Tips
 If the disk will not format check to be sure the write protect tab is covering the
hole. Reference the photo of the 3.5” floppy disk in the Equipment section on page 3.
 If the disk will not format, try a second disk. Even if the disk is new it might still be
bad.
 If several disks will not format, be sure the floppy disk drive is connected and
functioning. It should make noise and a light may flash on the front of the drive. If
the drive is suspected to be bad, try a different PC or new external drive.
 Disks can also be formatted through the Universal Flight Management System.
Please consult the appropriate Operator’s Manual for instructions. Manuals can
be found on UniNet.
 If the computer prevents the download, it is likely due to the network or computer
antivirus or firewall settings. Consult the antivirus manufacturer, your company IT
department or the PC operator’s manual. Or use a different PC and/or network.
 It is only necessary to load a navigation database set into the Flight Management
System one time. The FMS will automatically begin using the database cycle at
the first power up on or after the effective date.
 If the disk will not load into the Flight Management System, try repeating the
following procedures with new 3.5” floppy disks. If issues continue to occur,
contact Universal Avionics Customer Support.

Equipment
 Along with a Microsoft Windows
based PC a 3.5” floppy disk drive is
required. There might be a drive
built into the PC. Pictured is a 3.5”
floppy disk external drive. It can be
connected to a PC with a USB port
via a USB cable. This equipment is
not manufactured by Universal
Avionics.
 Writeable 3.5” floppy disks are
required. Be sure the write
protection tab is intact and slid up,
covering the hole. When viewing
the disk as pictured the write
protect tab is in the lower right
corner. The number of disks
required will depend on the
database. Some subscriptions use
as many as four disks. This
equipment is not manufactured by
Universal Avionics.
 The aircraft should be equipped
with a 3.5” floppy disk data transfer
unit (DTU) which can be mounted
into the aircraft part number 140501-1 or portable part number 140401-1X. This equipment is
manufactured by Universal Avionics.
