[Avionics Today 07-23-2015] Garmin and Jeppesen are broadening the Garmin Connext ecosystem compatibility to include Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck. With compatible Garmin avionics, customers can wirelessly receive Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) weather and traffic, as well as display precise GPS position data and back-up attitude information within compatible products and devices.

"Expanding the Connext ecosystem also gives aircraft owners additional options when pursuing ADS-B solutions and avionics upgrades; and now, Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck customers will have the capability to display ADS-B traffic and weather on their iPad," said Carl Wolf, Garmin's vice president of aviation sales and marketing.
Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck is expected to support the display of ADS-B traffic and weather, as well as WAAS GPS position information from a compatible source. Additional details regarding avionics compatibility and features will be introduced in a future release.
