July 16, 2015 – (Houston, TX) — #ForeFlight has announced it’s official collaboration with the #Garmin #Connext™ family of flight connectivity solutions. This is truly groundbreaking news for the #pilot community, as the most popular aviation App and the leading avionics producer have formally agreed to play well with each other.
ForeFlight Mobile 7.2, connected to a Garmin Flight Stream box, can wirelessly receive pitch and bank information, WAAS GPS location data and ADS-B weather and traffic, depending on the avionics options installed.
Weather and traffic from an installed GDL 88/84 is displayed in ForeFlight when connected to the Flight Stream 110/210.
The Flight Stream 210 contains an internal AHRS attitude indicator which drives ForeFlight’s Synthetic Vision.
Additionally, owners of the Garmin GTN™ 650/750, GNS™ 430W/530W series of navigators, or the Garmin GDL 88 with WAAS GPS can use the built-in WAAS position information to power ForeFlight’s moving map and geo-reference plates and taxi diagrams.
This first version does not include the flight plan transfer capability, but it’s in the works and will be released in a future App update.
