Hi guys,

I read through the old posts from 2019. I am currently using a Garmin 495 in my RV12 to guide the autopilot which sucks... The airplane isn't the most expensive plane and we are therefore a bit cost sensitive when it comes to upgrades (some day that may change...). Anyways, we are therefore looking into replacing the 495 with the Aera 660 (760 doesn't fit in the center console). Generally, the system allows for inflight adjustment of the route and autopilot GPS navigation (in contrast to the current system...). However, I am wondering if there is a chance to connect Skydemon to the Aera 660 to upload flight plans (either bluetooth or wifi). It seems to be possible with foreflight. Does an additional hardware piece potentially do the job?

Additionally, I am using Stratux linked to Skydemon which works fine most of the time. I would love to pass the traffic information on to the Aera 660. Or even better, the weather. Any idea how this could be realized?

Me too!

I'm swapping a GPS296 for an Aera660 and it would be great if SD could send the route direct via Bluetooth from my Nexus7 to the 660 without paying ~£80 for a basic GarminPilot subscription to export from SD to GP then via Connext to the 660 (Nexus is using its WiFi connection to talk to SkyEcho).

Even greater if an in-flight change to SD route could be auto-synchronised to the 660 using its automatic  incoming flight plan option. 

Tim, has anything moved on since 2019?

Garmin are still unwilling to allow us to transfer such information directly to their products.
