D2 Bravo Series Introduces Flight Plan & Waypoint Transfer Feature

After announcing the latest model in the D2 Bravo series – the Titanium – just a few weeks ago, we’re excited to announce the latest feature available in both models of our popular D2 Bravo series of aviator watches. With Garmin Pilot software version 8.3 for iOS, and software version 5.3 for Android, pilots now have the capability to transfer flight plans and user waypoints from Garmin Pilot to the D2 Bravo and D2 Bravo Titanium aviator watches.

The latest flight plan and waypoint transfer feature adds to an already extensive collection of built-in tools on the GPS aviator watches including METAR and TAF information, dedicated Direct-to and Nearest buttons, Baro-adjustable altimeter, HSI, Zulu/UTC time and much more.

The process for setting up and executing the flight plan transfer feature with the D2 Bravo series is slightly different for Android and iOS devices. Below, we will walk through the step-by-step process for both.
