Satcom Direct and ForeFlight team up for moving map upgrade


The SDR from Satcom Direct can now be used as a GPS data source to depict an aircraft’s position on the moving map part of ForeFlight’s flight planning and EFB app for iPad and iPhone.

The map will display GPS location, ground speed and indicated altitude information, and enable passengers and crew to see the time and distance to the destination, as well as the local time of arrival, in real time.

The app can also show high-resolution radar, icing, turbulence, winds aloft and other graphical weather layers when connected to the SDR’s wi-fi internet.
