The annunciated voice alerts for detected (e.g. ADS-B) traffic in the new release, really are an excellent enhancement - well done SD.  

However, in a noisy cockpit, relying on the iPad's inbuilt speakers to hear it is not really feasible.  As my iPad is housed in a 'Flypad' receptacle in the panel, both its speakers - and plugging a 3.5mm jack into its audio socket to inject audio into my intercom, are effectively inhibited.  

Does anyone have any suggestions on if/how to get SD's audio relayed to a wifi device - which (as getting NMEA data data for position and route for an autopilot), might solve my problem?

The usual way is to couple your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth to either the audio panel or directly to your headset.

Thanks and I will try that. Just hoping that my SD on iPad Mini 4 setup will be able to tx/rx with other devices on both GDL90 and Bluetooth simultaneously.

If it's a Flypad then it is incredibly easy to plug a 3.5mm jack into the iPad. Just do it and then slide the iPad into the mount as you normally would.

I have asked the question about connecting the iPad Mini to multiple Bluetooth devices and the answer was 'no'. From another thread Tim has said the SD audio will go out over an iPad Mini's BT audio, so if you have a headset with BT capability then you could get the info that way. It's certainly top of my list of the way to get it done.

What else are you trying to achieve? NMEA messages from the iPad to your EFIS so the same route is displayed on your EFIS as is on your SD? That's certainly an interesting thought :-)  (I thought I read some time ago that a rival navigation app is able to achieve that but I'm not certain).......that's me banned from the forum :-(
