[Avionics Today 07-16-2015] Garmin International has expanded its Connext wireless cockpit ecosystem, which broadens compatibility to include the Garmin aera 796/795 aviation portable GPS, ForeFlight Mobile and Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck. Through the capability expansion, operators will be able to wirelessly receive Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) weather and traffic, as well as display GPS position data and back-up attitude information.

“Expanding the Connext ecosystem also gives aircraft owners additional options when pursuing ADS-B solutions and avionics upgrades; and now, thousands of existing aera 796/795, ForeFlight Mobile and Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck customers have the capability to display ADS-B traffic and weather on their portable devices,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing.

The aera 796/795 is also expanding to include compatibility with Flight Stream 210/110 when installed with a GDL 88/84 to display ADS-B traffic, weather and attitude information.
