Garmin Grows Connext Wireless Cockpit Connectivity Portfolio

Includes FltPlan Website And Apps As Part Of The Package

Garmin has 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 avionics, 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.

“Through this collaboration, FltPlan.com and FltPlan Go customers gain access to even more connectivity options that significantly enhance their flight planning and in-flight experiences,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “With this strategic relationship, we’re excited to not only expand the Connext ecosystem, but also give aircraft owners and operators even more options when pursuing avionics upgrades that offer a connected environment in the cockpit, which further aid in the decision making process.”

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 avionics. 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.

“We are excited to be part of the Garmin Connext ecosystem and look forward to expansion of this collaboration as Garmin continues their innovation in cockpit technology. We believe that this integration will streamline the flight planning process for our users while ensuring that they have the best possible information at their fingertips,” said Ken Wilson, president of FltPlan.com.

When paired with compatible avionics, the FltPlan Go app can wirelessly communicate with select Garmin products to display ADS-B traffic, FIS-B weather and audio entertainment within the app. Select Garmin products also power synthetic vision to display dynamic pitch and bank information alongside highly accurate WAAS GPS position information.

Connext wireless compatibility is extended to the FltPlan.com website and FltPlan Go app and includes the following Garmin products:

  • Flight Stream 510/210/1102
  • GTX 345 series
  • GDL 88/84 series
  • GDL 69 series
  • GDL 52 series
  • GDL 39/GDL 39 3D

FltPlan.com and FltPlan Go iOS app compatibility are available now. FltPlan Go Android app compatibility is expected to be available soon.
