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.
