Does the Wombat work the Garmin FlightStream 510 card?

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.
