Looks like you can connect to a L-3 Lynx by configuring DroidEFB to connect to the Lynx SSID as a SkyRadar device. GPS works immediately, once you select it as the GPS source. TIS-B and METARS seem to display correctly. Haven’t seen AIRMETS and TFRs displayed yet.

SkyRadar emulation seemed to work with the Wifi device for the NGT set to broadcast on port 43211. When I changed the broadcast port number to 4000, the Stratux profile seemed to work better.September 12, 2016 at 12:06 #67615
Further testing shows that with the Wifi broadcast port set to 4000, the Stratux setting is the only one that recognizes GPS and ADS-B data from the Lynx.October 2, 2016 at 11:32 #67622
Using the Stratux setting, the data feed seems to drop out fairly frequently.October 2, 2016 at 11:42 #67623rotoitiKeymaster
I do not have a Lynx but I am using stratux and my feed (gps and both radios) is stable. Maybe Lynx is using some non standard message formats that throws off DroidEFB?October 2, 2016 at 12:11 #67624
My understanding from Avidyne, Piper, and other forums, the “standard” is subject to substantial interpretation. Thus, my IFD-540 reports “Traffic Sensor Error” whenever I’m near Class C/B airspace due to the data overload coming from the NGT-9000. http://forums.avidyne.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=849&PID=11717&SID=18629157afc9a4ab64zbfdz7ecefd5428240741&title=connecting-with-an-ngt-9000#11717April 9, 2017 at 12:50 #67794
Any progress on Lynx or Avidyne IFD data exchange capability? Avidyne has released v10.2 which largely expands it’s data interchange capabilities.April 10, 2017 at 07:43 #67795PaulKeymaster
Apologies for the continued delay. We are ramping up in preparation for several significant updates in the near future.September 23, 2017 at 08:34 #67879
Thank you. I see there is a reference to “Beta Lynx ADSB support” in 2.3.1, but do not see it in the Preferences as an option. Am I missing something?May 26, 2019 at 17:54 #68412
OK, I’ve been using the Lynx NGT-9000 for 3 years now with the Stratux setting in DroidEFB. The drop-outs are still occurring. I’ll test it out shortly with the new 3.2.1 software in the Lynx and see if there is any improvement over the 2.0 software.
How about the FIS-B products? Will we be seeing those anytime soon in DroidEFB? I.e. Lightning, Icing (current & forecast), Turbulence, and Cloud Tops
Also, how about Avidyne IFD flight plan exchange? IFD software just upgraded to 10.2.3.1 which includes the ability to either be a WiFi access point with its own SSID or client on another device’s SSID.October 26, 2019 at 21:29 #68447
Lynx upgraded, but didn’t see the new FIS-B products in DroidEFB.
Also, any chance to get some Avidyne IFD integration?April 27, 2021 at 18:24 #69474
The IFD540 can send TIS-B, FIS-B and GPS data to DroidEFB if the tablet/phone is connected to the IFD SSID, typically LIO_WIFI, and that SSID is entered in the DroidEFB Stratux ADS-B SSID entry in the Device Settings menu.
Any chance you’ll get flight plan exchange with the Avidyne IFDs any time soon? They publish the API…
