Garmin Pilot

Hello! I am a new SafeSky Premium subscriber. I discovered SafeSky trough a recent article in the German Aviation Magazine “Fliegermagazin”. The article was quite enthusiastic about your software and featured a picture of an iPad showing the Garmin Pilot software and your software on the same screen. This has been quite decisive in my decision to subscribe by bypassing the free version and taking advantage of the limited offer for the Premium subscription. I discover now that SafeSky and Garmin Pilot are not compatible. How can it be? What did I miss?

I read the same article in the Fliegermagazin. The picture was with Foreflight, not Garmin. I am using Garmin Pilot myself and what you can do is run Safesky in SplitScreen-Mode and move it to either side with GarminPilot on the full screen. Unfortunately Garmin does not support split screen so you will have part of the Garmin Screen covered by Safesky. But it may be a work around.

Thanks for this reply, Chris!

And yes, we would really love to see SafeSky be integrated in Garmin Pilot. We have been talking to Garmin at AERO in Friedrichshafen. They promised to look at it…
Let’s hope ?
Best regards,

There was today a new release of Garmin Pilot, which now has generic GDL 90 support. Before I make the upgrade to a premium plan, can someone confirm that this means that Safesky can now be integrated into Garmin pilot? Would be really awesome…

Hello, thanks for the feedback.

We are going to perform some testing and report back If this is working.

Fly Safe,


Any news on this? Compatibility with Garmin Pilot would be extremely helpful :smiley:!

Best Christoph

The next AERO is coming up! :wink: Any feedback from Garmin? They integrated many sensors in the meantime, why not your wonderful app? I would instantly switch to Premium as soon as I can use the App on Garmin Pilot!

Hello @Chris , we have done some testing, and it’s not ‘yet’ working 100% as expected. Traffic is appearing and disappearing for no obvious raisons.

We are getting in touch with Garmin to address the remaining issues.

Stay tuned :slight_smile:


Thank you Tristan for your prompt answer :smiley:. That is great to hear and the season is still young! :wink: Will I see Safesky on the AERO?

yes @Chris , come and visit us at ARTO, our booth is located at A6-404.

Until then, fly safe,
