Connection to Garmin GNX 375

Dear community,

to display ADS-B traffic information in SkyDemon (iPad version) we currently use in our aircraft a Stratux receiver. Traffic data are sent to our tablets via WiFi and GDL90 protocol, which works fine.

Currently we discuss to replace our (non ADS-B) transponder with a Garmin GNX 375 (transponder with ADS-B In/Out plus GPS navigator). This device provides Bluetooth connectivity (Connext) to exchange data with mobile phones and tablets.

Now my question: Is it possible to receive ADS-B traffic data via Bluetooth from the Garmin GNX 375? And is it maybe possible to send flight plans from the iPad (running SkyDemon) to the GNX 375?

THX for your help

No; Garmin do not currently expose the facility for that kind of connectivity to apps like SkyDemon.

Hello Tim,

THX for your response, so I believe the Garmin device with it's small display is out of the race because we do not want to leave our favorite EFB SkyDemon :-)
