ADLConnect for Iridium GO


Our special ADLConect for Iridium GO license allows you to download ADL in flight weather using an Iridium GO device instead of our own ADL devices.

Please do not get confused. You do not have to order any of the items below if you plan on using an ADL device! The GO is a separate solution for bigger planes which can offset the higher annual fixed cost with the many hours they fly.

Available Features

You get all the usual features of the ADLConnect app like radar, strikes, infrared etc. But in comparison to the ADL devices the downloaded corridor is nearly twice as wide (close to 350NM).

The ADLConnect app will manage the Iridium GO satellite connection and firewall automatically. So all you do is request a download and the system will do the rest including redialing if a connection breaks etc.

Due to very efficient data compression you can expect to consume only one minute of airtime for a complete weather download.

Iridium GO vs ADL devices?

The Iridium GO has those unique features:
  • Make phone calls
  • Download a wider weather corridor
  • Unlimited data plans available for heavy use like airlines

  • The ADL devices in comparison feature:
  • Much lower running cost
  • Possibility of using short duration trip kits
  • Possibility for permanent installation
  • Interconnect with installed avionics
  • Superior aircraft tracking

  • The bottom line is that the best solution will really depend on your use case.

    ForeFlight, Garmin Pilot and SkyDemon integration

    Weather data downloaded using the ADLConnect app over the Iridium Go is passed on to Foreflight, Garmin Pilot, SkyDemon and other GDL90 compatible apps.

    Iridium GO power management

    The Iridium GO, as it comes from the factory, will only operate properly when the supplied battery is installed. Unfortunately this means the device has to be turned on and off for every flight. Failure to turn if off will drain the battery and lead to its destruction after few cycles.
    We have a solution which removes the battery and makes the GO device turn on and off directly with the USB power supply. Please contact us for details.
