Hello,
does anybody had success with connecting to the Lynx Wifi using the GDL90 interface?

I only managed to get the the position but don't see any traffic. Tried different settings
for "Other Traffic" but had no success :-(

That is very disappointing, because there is currently no App that supports the Lynx
for Europe and I was hoping for Skydemon...

I haven't even heard of this device, so it isn't surprising it doesn't have widespread explicit app support at this stage. Do you have any information about where it's on sale or being pushed in Europe?

Hello Tim,

the device is from L3 and currently the only one which combines ADSB and TAS in single unit ( beside being a transponder). They had a special last year. See also http://l-3lynx.com
At the end of the page they list a couple of apps which currently support it so I suppose that they are quite open in cooperating with app providers.
I do have one installed and could help with testing ...

It looks like a pretty capable device. We will wait to see if it becomes popular in Europe, though, as it looks like primarily an American thing at the moment.

Hi Tim, I just installed the NGT 9000 from L3 in my plane. As you mentioned a very capable system. I really want to encourage you to offer the GDL90 interface (wifi) to Skydemon. Foreflight and others already implemented the interface. If you want me for testing, let me know.

SkyDemon has supported GDL90 for literally years.

I tried it and the GPS data works just fine via the GDL interface, but unfortunately no traffic at all.
As GDL 90 is already implemented it shouldn‘t take much effort to try to fix this...?

SkyDemon supports reception of other traffic over GDL90 just fine.

Just to mirror the quality of your answer:

1. the answer was right
2. the answer didn‘t solve any problem
3. the Lynx GDL 90 interface works just fine with
- AVPlan EFB
- FltPlanGo
- FlyQ
- Foreflight
- Naviator
- Skyradar
- WingX
- iFly
- Aerovie

I thought some of your biggest assets against the big players like Garmin are customer service and flexibility - to my big disappointment I was wrong. Sad ...
