The Garmin Connext wireless cockpit system is now compatible with ForeFlight and Jeppesen apps, allowing them to receive GPS and ADS-B weather and traffic information from compatible panel-mount Garmin avionics.
Just ahead of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, ForeFlight released version 7.2, the app's fifth major update of 2015. This release includes some enhancements to their Sync and Flight Notifications products, an update to the Apple Watch version of the app, and support for the new Stratus 1S and 2S ADS-B receivers.
