On the PC VERSION, I’m using the .fpl export function to an SD card to load the flightplan in the G1000 of a Diamond DA40, and it works great ! Thank you for this functionality as it saves a lot of pre-flight time, and even Garmin has no solution for this .
The wireless solution is not an option on the G1000 as it doesn’t have wi-fi or bluetooth connectivity, and all the (costly) add-ons from Garmin only work on the G1000 NXI. So even if you did find a solution to send the flightplan, there is no way to receive it.
Question for Tim: One of the strong points of Skydemon is the ability to select a different altitude for each leg. The G1000 can do the same, when you create the flight plan on the MFD (WHICH TAKES FOREVER ! ) But do you know if the .fpl format allows transfer of altitude for each leg ? Because that would make the .fpl export from Skydemon even greater !
Just an idea: Why not use the Icloud functionality on IOS as a repository for own documents in Skydemon ? The icloud could then be used on the mobile skydemon to export .fpl and used the to put it on an sd-card. No more pc necessary...
Just a tought...
