If "login failed while offline" is displayed when signing in, JSUM is unable to connect to the Jeppesen update servers. This can occur if there is no Internet connection or if another application is preventing JSUM from accessing the Internet.
First, please open Internet Explorer and visit a page aside from your home page. This will ensure you have a valid connection. Next, make sure any Internet security or firewall applications are either configured to allow JSUM access to the Internet, or are disabled.
To download NavData, JSUM requires an outgoing and incoming https connection through Internet port 443. To download terminal chart data, JSUM requires an outgoing and incoming tcp connection through Internet port 1984. It may be necessary to configure your firewall or Internet security applications so these ports are not blocked. If your network has a router, gateway, or other networking device that also functions as a firewall, it may be necessary to configure the firewall so that Internet ports 443 and 1984 are not blocked.
You can use the Jeppesen System Diagnostics Tool to test the connections to the Jeppesen update servers, as well as ports 443 and 1984. Please click on the Jeppesen System Diagnostics Tool link below to download and install it. Once you have opened the program, select JSUM to test the connection.

1 The SkyBound USB programmer that is required for updating certain GPS systems requires 300mA of power. To work correctly, some data card and media adapters require a high-powered USB hub capable of providing more than 100mA of power through the port.
2 Hard disk space requirements vary depending on coverage area and data installed. The figures given are estimates, as the data changes on a regular basis.
You can install the Jeppesen Services Update Manager application on as many computers as you like.
JSUM can program Garmin WAAS cards. If you already have a service for a non-WAAS GPS, you will need to contact Jeppesen Sales Support to change your service to a WAAS service. The contact information for Sales Support is listed on the left side of the Contact Us Form.
Please note that the WAAS service uses a different data card, labelled IFRW. The service is not compatible with data cards for non-WAAS systems, labelled IFREP.
The cycle date in JSUM represents the effective date of the data.
The Garmin terrain database is approximately 1GB in size. Depending on the speed of your Internet connection, the download could take between 20min. to 5 hours. Additional factors that affect download speeds include anti-virus, firewall, and other security software, as well as the type of operating system installed on the computer. We've found that downloads are generally slower in Windows Vista and 7 compared to Windows XP.
If using a wireless connection with weak or intermittent signal strength, please consider using a hardwired connection in order to minimize signal dropouts and interruptions.
