All: We have recently developed system firmware for our Vision-Pro Plus Experimental/LSA version Transceivers that will support interfacing with ForeFlight Mobil Flight app. In order to take advantage of this capability, your Vision-Pro Plus Transceiver will need version 37 or greater firmware installed. You must also use the SkyGuardTWX app. available for free download on an Apple iPhone or iPad to enable/disable the ForeFlight communication mode. Here is the sequence of steps required to configure your Transceiver for ForeFlight:
- Make sure you have the SkyGuardTWX app. version 2.0.6 or greater installed on your Apple device
- Turn on your SkyGuardTWX Vision-Pro Plus Transceiver
- Connect your Apple device to the Transceiver over a WiFi link
- Startup the SkyGuardTWX app.(version 2.0.6 or greater) on your Apple Device
- Wait to get a valid GPS lock and insure the green checkmark is present for the Transceiver configuration button
- Toggle the "ForeFlight Mode: OFF" button to "ON"
- Wait for the dialog box to come up telling you to exit/kill the SkyGuardTWX app. and startup ForeFlight Mobil app.
- Exit and Kill the SkyGuardTWX app. from the background (it cannot run in the background along with ForeFlight)
- Startup ForeFlight Mobil
- You should see in the ForeFlight Mobil "Devices" menu and you are now connected to "FreeFlight"
- ForeFlight thinks it is talking to a FreeFlight Systems ADS-B Transceiver as that is the communication protocol that we implemented
- If so, you are good to go in using ForeFlight for ADS-B Traffic and Weather Displays
- ForeFlight communication mode will stay active until you power down the SkyGuardTWX Vision-Pro Plus Transceiver.
- If you power down your Transceiver, it will revert back to the standard communications protocol and then you must repeat these steps starting at the top of this list to use ForeFlight Mobil again.
Hope this is useful to those of you who are die-hard ForeFlight users!
