Eric’s Release Summary Notes:

  • ForeFlight Mobile 7.3 completes the Garmin Avionics integration announced at Oshkosh.
  • If you own an airplane with a Garmin GNS-430W / 530W or GTN-650 / 750, for $995 + installation, you can create a flight plan on your iPad, upload it to the panel and go fly. 
  • Changes made to your flight plan, during flight, and made in the panel cause ForeFlight to automatically prompt you to download the flight plan changes back to your iPad, keeping you in-sync as you fly.
  • For Two-Way Flight Plan transfers to work you’ll need to buy and install the $995 Garmin Flight Stream 210 and have it installed in your panel. (See: )
  • This combination eliminates the need for the portable Stratus unit and provide a stronger and more reliable GPS and ADS-B signal because it uses the externally installed antennas to bring the signal in to the cockpit.
  • If you already own a Stratus 2 or 2S, however, keeping it charged up and available can serve as a battery powered, emergency backup, should you loose all electrical power in-flight.
