Thanks,
Hello Carl,

Many would like for Foreflight to add support for the GDL 5X series of ADS-B and SXM traffic/weather receivers, but at this point there is no indication of when or if this will happen.

Thanks,
Steve

Disappointing information, but thanks for the response.

Default Shorten or expand GMA 25 cable

I already have an Aera 660 with Antenna GMA 25 MCX which works well, but i need to shorten the Antennacable to 3 feet (Glaresheeld) or to expand it if i mount the Antenna on the Back of the Fuselage. Is it a problem to shorten the Cable and if i want to expand it 6 feet, which typ of cable is the best.

Markus

As of 9/30/2018, ForeFlight works well with the Garmin GDL 50. Just like it did with the GDL 39.

Thanks. Actually, ForeFlight began working with the Garmin GDL 50 as of FF v10.2, around 7/11/2018.

One thing I really like about the Garmin traffic info displayed on Garmin devices (I use an AERA 660) is the "TargetTrend" feature. Does all the vector math between your aircraft and various targets for you, and displays a relative trend line for each target.

Hi Guys is there anything new for the 660 on the horizon.

Cheers

I'm hoping for an uprgade to make it work with the Stratux, taking ADS-B traffic and weather, and AHRS data. A man can dream...
