Jeppesen, Garmin improve pilot app wireless data capabilities

Jeppesen, a Boeing Company, has announced new wireless data transfer capabilities for Jeppesen terminal charts that are accessed through select Garmin avionics and the iOS-based Garmin Pilot app, the company said.

This development enhances the integrated data capabilities from the two companies that advance cockpit technology and improve the flying experience for general aviation pilots.

Pilots using the GTN 650/750 touchscreen navigator or the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck with Flight Stream 510 will now be able to wirelessly transfer Jeppesen terminal charts through the iOS-based Garmin Pilot app to their avionics systems. The Flight Stream 510 MultiMediaCard (MMC) from Garmin includes Database Concierge, the tool that transfers Jeppesen aviation database updates from the app to supported Garmin avionics.
