Garmin have confirmed that for the moment, they are not interested in letting third parties (in Europe) communicate with their devices and wish to lock people to using only Garmin gear.

In America the situation is slightly different, as you have observed. ‌‌

Hi all,
does anybody know if there is a possibility to send the flightplans from an ipad via Bluetooth to a Garmin G3XTouch. This would be amazing. G3XTouch has this capability.
See extraction from the descrition of G3XTouch
---------------------------------------------------------

Also new, G3X Touch offers the benefits of Connext cockpit connectivity. Pilots are offered the convenience of flight planning on a tablet using Garmin Pilot™ and the simplicity of wirelessly transferring flight plans via Bluetooth® to the G3X Touch system. A G3X Touch system with a GDL 39R shares GPS, attitude, traffic and weather data with a mobile device for display using Garmin Pilot. 

---------------------------------------------------------

If not - any possibility to implement this in a future release?

Are there any changes to Garmin’s policy? This would be a great feature, and I could imagine that given SkyDemon’s popularity another 2 years later it could be seen as a valuable feature to Garmin as well!

Cheers, Peter

No change, but we will lobby them at Aero 2020 as we do every year. If you're visiting the show, do the same, it will help persuade them.
