Default Cool!

Is there a subscription I need to pay to use this feature? does it really work in all of Europe?

Hello Bruno,

That would be nice, but the 796 doesn't have a WiFi interface.

Thanks,
Steve

Hello RV7ForMe,

No, there are no subscription fees. In some cases Garmin has to pay for this data, but we are not passing this on to customers.

This image shows the coverage in Europe.



The coverage is quite good in Western Europe.



If you have specific coverage questions, it is probably best to email us.

Thanks,
Steve

Great job guys!!! That's a feature I've been wanting. I really like my Aera 660 and this makes it even better. Since I'm in the middle of building an RV I fly spam cans to stay current. Some of these have very little for navigation and my Aera 660 works great to improve these older airplane capabilities. Like most pilots my mind is always on the weather so having an Aera 660 at my desk showing the weather will help satify that need.

Thanks for all the hardwork from TeamX!

This is terrific news! Thank you. Could this data be uploaded to a G3X since we don't have ads-b weather in Europe? As In. Can I use my cell phone to give the 660 internet to get weather and have that show on the G3X? or put it there any other way?

Hello RV7ForMe,

There is not currently any way to share this data with a G3X system, but your interest is noted.

Thanks,
Steve

Default Import of flp-files

I would buy an 660 as soon, as it will be possible to import gpx/flp-files via WiFi from other Apps.

Wow, Garmin. Thanks for continuing internal development and listening to your customers resulting in awesome updates to the aera 660. I own three and I feel like their value is enhanced every time you add new features. Each improvement makes logical sense. And builds loyalty.

Default Australia coverage

Hi Steve

What sort of coverage would we expect in Australia due to not having Nexrad.
Thanks
