Using the FltPlan Go app, pilots can file flight plans on mobile devices, then download them directly to Garmin panel-mount avionics via Garmin Connext. The centerpiece of Connext is the ability for pilots to wirelessly connect various devices to panel-mount avionics that facilitate information swapping.
Garmin panel-mount avionics including the GTN 650/750, G1000 NXi, and GNS 430W/530W can receive wireless downloads via Connext. The FltPlan Go app also allows flight plan transfers with the Garmin Pilot app.
“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.
FltPlan Go is available on iOS devices now, and Android compatibility is in development.
