For less than $1,000 you can have in-flight weather (ADS-B or SiriusXM), GPS, traffic, flight data recorder and a backup attitude/heading display, all on your iPad. There are a lot of options out there, so we assembled this buyer’s guide to help you sort out the details. Click on the image for a larger version:

    • Exactly!!!! It is because Sporty’s thinks Foreflight and Garmin are the only programs out there! There are many excellent choices. Especially WingX. Amazing what competition will do for prices. I use a Stratux and love it!!!!

  1. According to ipadpilot , the compatability of the Garmin GDL39 can be used with Foreflight. Is this true or not. If true, how do I connect it to foreflight?
