Frequently Asked Questions


You'll want to load two apps, both of which are free on the App Store:

Bad Elf Wombat: you'll use our app to do firmware updates, collect flight logs, and perform database updates to Turbine aircraft.

Jeppesen JDM Mobile: you'll use the JDM app to perform database updates linked to your JDM account.

Yes. Make sure your Wombat is running firmware version 1.1.10 or newer, and connect the FS510 card to the Wombat using the Transcend USB-to-SD adapter that Garmin ships with the FS510. You cannot insert the FS510 directly into the Wombat's SD card slot. It is not a standard SD card and requires more power than is allowed under the SD specifications.

That's not a question, but we'll answer it anyway. Wombat units ship with a protective film on the faceplate. Remove this and you'll be shiny again.


Please read our note about international purchases.

Of course, that varies by weight and destination. Bad Elf ships via US Mail, UPS, or FedEx usually from our primary warehouse in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The easiest way to get an accurate shipping quote is to simply begin a purchase and start checking out. You’ll be able to see the shipping costs before entering any credit card information.

See our detailed notes about shipping times and customs fees.

Since we sell primarily through distributors, we do not provide a list of individual retailers.
