    I came across this tonight while I was googling to buy an extra charger for my Garmin GDL 39 3D. I was a bit lazy on my search
parameters and this foreflight link came up: . As of September, Foreflight supports the Garmin in addition
to a Stratus.

For those that aren't familiar with it, GDL 39 3D is Garmin's equivalent of a Stratus 2. It provides Synthetic Vision / AHRS / ASDB
In for Garmin units (like the Garmin Aerea 796 I have panel mounted in my Searey).

Because I already had the GDL 39, I didn't want to buy a Stratus just to use for Foreflight, even though I think it is superior to
Garmin mobile app. So, I've been stuck using Garmin Pilot on my phone/tablet to get the benefits of the GDL 39 3D.

After reading that page, I ran out to my hangar and tested Foreflight with the GDL 39 3D, and it works fine with Foreflight.
Synthetic vision worked wll, and I even saw an ads-b ping from someone taking off from nearby Lake Norman airport.

I can finally retire Garmin Pilot and go with Foreflight on my phone. The timing is perfect since my subscription for Garmin Pilot ran
out a few days ago.

    on a "lighter" note, as we find more ways to add more glass instruments to our panels, keep in
mind that one of the greatest
pleasures in flying a Searey is the view .....outside! :-)

This was my first instrument panel on the first plane that I built. The plastic disc in the clear
plastic tube clearly shows I am
at max cruise. 45 MPH. Otherwise the view is basically unobstructed.

    Always said the only required instrument is oil pressure gauge. Have flown many times with airspeed zero as pitot plugged or
flapper over pitot not opening. Not knocking avionics - I have foreflight and dynon, but yeah, sometimes I don't want the input.
