AUSTIN, Texas, – DAC INTERNATIONAL INC. (DAC), a subsidiary of Aero Precision Holdings LP, announced today the compatibility of the DAC International GDC64 with Foreflight Mobile. Beginning with ForeFlight's November release, version 11.10, the GDC64 allows the display of ADS-B information in ForeFlight's industry leading integrated app. The DAC International GDC64 Wired interface connects the FreeFlight Systems RANGR ADS-B receiver to an iPad for display on the Foreflight App. This solution provides an ADS-B compliant installation to meet the 2020 mandates with a wired solution not requiring Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and their accompanying reliability issues. The RANGR ADS-B Receiver connects to the GDC64 which in turn provides an interface to the iPad for use by the Foreflight Application to display ADS-B information.
“We are extremely pleased to finally offer this solution to our many customers that have been asking for this interface to the Foreflight application,” said DAC International’s President Cisco Hernandez.
