ForeFlight’s Connect platform continues to expand to include L-3’s Lynx line of ADS-B products. ForeFlight customers can connect wirelessly via Wi-Fi to L-3’s Lynx NGT-9000, -2000, and -2500 models to receive ADS-B traffic and weather and GPS data in ForeFlight. The NGT-9000, -9000+, -9000D, and 9000D+ all-in-one transponder solutions replace your current transponder to provide FAA mandate-compliant Mode S Extended Squitter capability with an embedded WAAS GPS. Lynx NGT-2000 and -2500 models also work seamlessly with the ForeFlight app and provide a low-cost 978 MHz ADS-B solution that integrates with legacy transponders.

Once you connect your iPad or iPhone to the Lynx’s WiFi network, you can see details of the connection in ForeFlight Mobile in More > Devices (tap the L-3 Lynx box for additional information) and you can overlay ADS-B weather and traffic information on the Maps view using the drop-down in the upper-left corner of the screen.
L-3 Lynx support is available with ForeFlight Mobile 7.7.2. You can check your app version at the top of More > About; if you don’t yet have version 7.7.2, you can upgrade directly by opening this link on your iPad or iPhone.
