iPads now talking GPS

February 23, 2012

An Apple iPad application allowing pilots to program a Garmin 430W/530W directly from an iPad is now available from VoiceFlight Systems.

The program, available free from iTunes, translates text flight plans into speech, programming complex flight plans in seconds—with no twisting of knobs. VoiceFlight President J. Scott Merritt gave AOPA Online a sneak peek in advance of the new application’s Feb. 22 release. The Connected Talker program requires an audio cord to connect the iPad to the VoiceFlight unit; the cord is available for $25 from VoiceFlight.
