Garmin® grows Connext® wireless cockpit connectivity portfolio

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced an expanded Connext ecosystem that now includes the website and the FltPlan Go app on Apple and Android mobile
devices. With compatible Garmin avionics1, pilots can simply
create a flight plan within the website, share it within the
FltPlan Go app and wirelessly transfer it to select avionics once they
arrive to the aircraft via the app on a mobile device. FltPlan Go
customers can also wirelessly receive and display aviation weather
products from various sources including Flight Information
Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) as well as Automatic Dependent
Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) traffic, GPS position data and back-up
attitude information.

“Through this collaboration, and FltPlan Go customers gain
access to even more connectivity options that significantly enhance
their flight planning and in-flight experiences,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin
vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “With this strategic
relationship, we’re excited to not only expand the Connext ecosystem,
but also give aircraft owners and operators even more options when
pursuing avionics upgrades that offer a connected environment in the
cockpit, which further aid in the decision making process.”

A companion to the popular website, the FltPlan Go app can
be utilized within the Connext ecosystem to wirelessly communicate with
select Garmin avionics1. Flight planning is streamlined with
Flight Stream 510, which enables wireless flight plan transfer between
the FltPlan Go app and the GTN™ 650/750 and G1000® NXi. Wireless flight
plan transfer is also available between the Flight Stream 210 and GTN
650/750 or GNS™ 430W/530W. In addition, flight plans may be transferred
from Fltplan Go to the Garmin Pilot application for iOS and Android

“We are excited to be part of the Garmin Connext ecosystem and look
forward to expansion of this collaboration as Garmin continues their
innovation in cockpit technology. We believe that this integration will
streamline the flight planning process for our users while ensuring that
they have the best possible information at their fingertips,” said Ken
Wilson, president of

When paired with compatible avionics1, the FltPlan Go app can
wirelessly communicate with select Garmin products to display ADS-B
traffic, FIS-B weather and audio entertainment within the app. Select
Garmin products also power synthetic vision to display dynamic pitch and
bank information alongside highly accurate WAAS GPS position information.
