Garmin International, Inc. recently announced an expanded Connext ecosystem that now includes the FltPlan.com website and the FltPlan Go app on Apple and Android mobile devices. With compatible Garmin avionics1, pilots can simply create a flight plan within the FltPlan.com website, share it within the FltPlan Go app and wirelessly transfer it to select avionics once they arrive to the aircraft via the app on a mobile device. FltPlan Go customers can also wirelessly receive and display aviation weather products from various sources including Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) as well as Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) traffic, GPS position data and back-up attitude information.
A companion to the popular FltPlan.com website, the FltPlan Go app can be utilized within the Connext ecosystem to wirelessly communicate with select Garmin avionics1. Flight planning is streamlined with Flight Stream 510, which enables wireless flight plan transfer between the FltPlan Go app and the GTN™ 650/750 and G1000® NXi. Wireless flight plan transfer is also available between the Flight Stream 210 and GTN 650/750 or GNS™ 430W/530W. In addition, flight plans may be transferred from Fltplan Go to the Garmin Pilot application for iOS and Android users.
FltPlan.com and FltPlan Go iOS app compatibility are available now. FltPlan Go Android app compatibility is expected to be available soon. For additional information, visit www.garmin.com/connext.
