    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.

    YMMV.

    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.

    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.

    Using the Stratux setting, the data feed seems to drop out fairly frequently.

    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?

    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#11717

    Any progress on Lynx or Avidyne IFD data exchange capability? Avidyne has released v10.2 which largely expands it’s data interchange capabilities.

    Apologies for the continued delay. We are ramping up in preparation for several significant updates in the near future.

    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?

    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.
