Does anyone have a Flight Stream 110 or 210 installed in their plane?

I do (FS210) on an Extra 400 with G500 and GTN750.
It connects to an iPad Pro running Garmin Pilot.
It is nice. The iPad displays synthetic vision, a moving map and even georeferenced IFR charts.

Jason
I don't believe it is certified for it yet, as that was one of my questions I asked when I got my -VI.

Knowing Diamond’d customer care once they sell you the aircraft, as a retrofit it will be available in 5 years and it will cost €10k.

You might be able to retrofit a FlightStream 110 or 210 to any "legacy" G1000, including a DA40 or DA42. I vaguely recall reading about one member of the forum here who has done this for his Diamond.

Interestingly, my DA62 G1000 NXi has a circuit breaker panel marking for a 2 amp circuit breaker labeled "GCU/FLT STRM." The "GCU" is the new-to-DA62 GCU 476 flight management system keypad I have that folds out of the center armrest, but "FLT STRM" must have been intended for a FlightStream 110 or 210 that is not installed. A Flightstream 510 wireless SD Card (which isn't yet supported by Diamond's G1000 NXi first software release) inserted into the bottom of MFD card slot doesn't need a circuit breaker.

I spoke to the factory, it is not currently possible to install a flight steam 210.

Do you know if this would apply to a -VI? In an aircraft with Iridium, XM, 345R a FlightStream would (I think) allow wireless connectivity to all three, so that's a bummer.

I was told by Garmin that F.S. 110 or 210 is not available for a T.D.I. such as mine, and don't hold your breath.
