How do I transfer my flight plan from ForeFlight to my Avidyne IFD440/540?

To transfer flight plans from ForeFlight to your Avidyne IFD440/540, first ensure your IFD540 has a firmware version of at least 10.2. With your iPad connected to your Avidyne, you can view your firmware version under MORE > DEVICES > AVIDYNE IFD > SOFTWARE VERSION.  

Once the firmware version is confirmed, perform the following to transfer your flight plan to your IFD440/540:

STEP 1. On the Maps view within ForeFlight, enter a flight plan into the FPL NavLog. 

STEP 2. Tap the SEND TO button in the lower right corner of the FPL view.

STEP 3. Tap the ((+)) PANEL button while connected to the Avidyne.


Select the ((+)) PANEL button

STEP 4. Tap SEND TO PANEL to send a route to the Avidyne.


Select the SEND TO PANEL button

STEP 5. On the IFD440/540, a "Route Upload Ready" notification appears. Select the ROUTE page.


When you see "Route Upload Ready," select the ROUTE page

STEP 6. Search for your route in the list. The route may not be at the top of the list since routes are organized alphabetically by the "From" waypoint.  


Select your route from the list

STEP 7. Once the route is selected, choose the ACTIVATE ROUTE button on the left side of the screen.  Confirm the route if you get a pop-up. The chosen route is then activated on the FPL page.
