Our latest version of Garmin Pilot — version 9.6 — includes an expanded feature set designed to increase integration with FltPlan.com, and provide pilots with additional information about their destination airport prior to flight, en route, or upon arrival. New to version 9.6, pilots can seamlessly synchronize flight plans between Garmin Pilot and FltPlan.com. The upgrade also includes AOPA FBO fees, flight data log exceedances, along with enhancements to split screen capability, runway centerlines and user waypoint management.
Garmin Pilot 9.6 allows U.S. pilots to create, file, amend and cancel flight plans with Garmin Pilot or FltPlan.com. In addition, FltPlan.com aircraft and pilot profiles are imported into Garmin Pilot for use in Trip Planning.
To get started:
All flight plans created or changed on FltPlan.com will be automatically synchronized with Trip Planning in Garmin Pilot.
A coalition of industry leaders, including AOPA, EAA, GAMA, NATA, NBAA and HAI, have called for Fee Transparency, asking FBOs to publish their pricing online. Garmin Pilot now displays FBO fees, sourced by AOPA, including landing, ramp, deicing, GPU, overnight and more!
To view FBO fees:
Flight Data Log Exceedance Alerts
Pilots may configure flight data log exceedances for every phase of flight within Garmin Pilot. The engine data graph, available from the logbook entry, will highlight an exceedance for a completed flight.
To establish a flight data log exceedance:
To view your engine data log
As a reminder, Garmin Pilot displays real-time engine information in-flight when paired with an EIS-capable TXi flight display or the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck and the Flight Stream 510. Upon landing, the flight data log is wirelessly uploaded to the flyGarmin website and is incorporated into the logbook entry for post flight analysis. Flight data logs may also be manually uploaded to flyGarmin from an SD card.
Customized Split Screen Items
The split screen capability within the Garmin Pilot map page is a highly used feature that is unique to our application. Now, users may customize the features in the Split Screen Selector to modify the order in which items appear, or hide items that are not used.
To arrange items to their original default position, select Restore.
We have added two additional runways centerlines options to improve situational awareness.
The runway centerlines will be displayed for all the airports in active flight plan.
Bulk Deletion of User Waypoints
Garmin Pilot has improved the management of user waypoint adding the capability to delete multiple waypoints at one time.
