ForeFlight Connect

Connect With Garmin

ForeFlight Mobile and Garmin avionics wirelessly connect, making everything from preflight planning to inflight rerouting easier and faster.


Garmin Connext Flight Stream

ForeFlight connects to Garmin installed avionics via the Flight Stream 110, 210, or 510 – Garmin's Bluetooth wireless gateway. Depending on which model you install, Flight Stream enables convenient two-way flight plan transfer, and the display of subscription-free ADS-B weather, traffic, backup attitude, and GPS data on your iPad and iPhone.

How to connect to your Garmin Flight Stream

GTX Series All-in-One Transponders

Qualifies for FAA Rebate

Garmin’s GTX 345 and GTX 335 all-in-one transponders meet the requirements of the FAA’s ADS-B Out mandate with the added benefit of ForeFlight compatibility. Depending on the model you choose, wirelessly deliver (via Bluetooth) FIS-B weather, ADS-B traffic, GPS data, and attitude information to your mobile device.

Garmin GDL® 39 ADS-B Receivers

ForeFlight is fully compatible with the GDL 39, 39 3D, and 39 R ADS-B receivers. The portable GDL 39 delivers ADS-B weather and traffic, as well as GPS data. The GDL 39 3D, with its internal attitude sensor, adds dynamic pitch and bank information to ForeFlight’s backup attitude and Synthetic Vision views.


Wirelessly transfer your flight plan between ForeFlight and Garmin GTN and GNS navigators when connected via Garmin Flight Stream 210, Flight Stream 510, or G3X Touch display.

Easily load complex routes that include approaches, SIDs, STARs, airways, and search and rescue patterns. ForeFlight also receives route changes made on the Garmin navigator, keeping your panel and your iOS device in sync.


ForeFlight displays the full suite of ADS-B weather and traffic information received via the GDL 39, GDL 88/84, or GTX 345 ADS-B Transponder. Access to real-time weather on your iPad gives you visibility into changing weather conditions and the ability to make safe and timely decisions. Traffic information available from the ADS-B system is an indispensable enhancement to your see-and-avoid strategy.


The Flight Stream 210, Flight Stream 510, GTX 345, and GDL 39 3D provide dynamic pitch and bank information to ForeFlight’s backup attitude and Synthetic Vision views.


WAAS GPS information from a GTN, GNS, GDL 39 or 88, GTX 335 or 345 can power features like ForeFlight's moving map and geo-referenced taxi charts to enhance situational awareness in the air and on the ground.
