Logbook Enhancements and New Garmin and Avidyne Connectivity with ForeFlight 7.6

ForeFlight 7.6 includes Logbook enhancements and expanded connectivity options with Garmin and Avidyne panel-mounted avionics.

Log Your Flights with Photo Memories

Photos take center stage in the Logbook enhancements delivered in ForeFlight 7.6. Now you can attach unlimited images—from your Photos app or fresh from your device’s camera—to flight entries, aircraft profiles, certificates, and endorsements. Use photos to capture the view on approach to the runway, keep a visual record of squawks, or take a selfie of you and your passengers. Once in Logbook, images can be cropped and rotated to your liking. As with all your Logbook data, these images are stored securely in the ForeFlight Cloud so you can access them from all of your devices.

Crop and rotate photos from your device or camera

We’ve also added an FAA 8710 report to serve as a guide for filling out your Airman Certificate/Rating Application. Both the 8710 and flight experience reports can be accessed from the new Reports section of the Logbook menu. You also have options to export to email or AirPrint from within the app.

Export reports to email or print

Finally, medical and knowledge test certificates with issue and expiration dates can be added in the Qualifications section, along with new custom type ratings.

Specify the class, and the issue and expiration dates for your medical certificate.

Expanded Connectivity with Garmin and New Integration with Avidyne

ForeFlight 7.6 includes full support for Garmin’s new GTX 345 ADS-B Out transponder, which can supply ForeFlight with ADS-B weather and traffic, WAAS GPS, and AHRS information, all while helping you meet the FAA’s 2020 ADS-B Out mandate. The GTX 345 connects to ForeFlight directly via Bluetooth — no Flight Stream required!

We’ve also partnered with Avidyne to enable connectivity between ForeFlight and the IFD540/440 FMS. The Wi-Fi connection sends GPS position data to ForeFlight and enables flight plan transfer from the IFD to ForeFlight.

ForeFlight 7.5.1 is Available for Download

ForeFlight 7.5.1 is a minor release to address two bugs that appeared with version 7.5. One fix is for increased battery usage after updating to iOS 9.2 and the other fixes the missing Logbook icon when using the Grid (Classic) menu view on the iPhone.

We strongly encourage anyone who is already on iOS 9.2 to update ForeFlight as soon as practical.

Please let us know if you experience any issues with this release. We are on frequency at team@foreflight.com to assist!
