Default Date of the Navaids database ?

What date is the included navaids database in the NS430, and, is it possible to update it using, for instance, Navigraph service ( as used for FSX / P3D / X-Plane ) ?

Unlikely, as DCS (and therefore the NS430) runways, etc. don't align with the real world exactly i.e. in DCS Batumi RWY 13 is 126° True (120° Magnetic) while in real life it is approx 132° True (126° Magnetic).

The data the NS430 uses looks to be based off real world approach charts, etc. but has, out of necessity, been adjusted to fit DCS's maps, so you're not going to be able to 'plug-in' a real world/FSX update easily.

What's the point of updating when the DCS map doesn't?
