Does this allow Jepp for our panel device  (IFD540) plus 3 more? This would certainly add more value if FF allows Jepp on 3-devices beyond the IFD540, for example 
 . iPad - FF
 . iPad - IFD100
 . iPhone

Charts bought through FF are only for portable devices. I don't know if you would be able to use one of those seats on a different EFB, but I think the intent is for them to be used with 3 devices running FF.

I don't think the subscription bought through FF includes use on the IFD540. I don't know if the three seats afforded by the FF subscription can be used on the IFD100, but I suspect you need to have charts on the panel-mount IFD for them to show up on the IFD100.

I know this topic is confusing. Hopefully we can clear things up during this conversation.

My understanding is that if you want charts on the IFD, you buy them from Jeppesen. If you want them for Foreflight, you can buy a seat from Jeppesen (perhaps even bundled with the IFD database) or you can buy a subscription for up to 3 devices from FF.

The saga continues....I got the $299 navdata last year on the first day it was offered. Just got an invoice for renewal at $491 for full usa navdata only (same thing).
I called--recording said wait was 85 minutes - I opted for the "call me" option. 2+ hours later I got a call from Jepp but they hung up on the 2nd ring. I then tried the online chat. After being number one in queue for some time it flipped to no chat available and leave an email. Next I simply replied to the email invoice (captain) with a link to avidyne price list and this morning there was an email with a correct (proforma) invoice and a link to pay online. Unfortunately, it had no invoice number on it and can't be used to pay. So I've emailed back asking for an invoice number. I'm sure I'll eventually have to call them and start from scratch.
The only thing keeping them going is a virtual monopoly on the market.
My thanks to Avidyne for helping to keep us from being gouged.

Update--next morning I tried phone again and it was a 65 minute estimate. I then tried Chat, only waited 5 minutes and billing issue taken care of in a few minutes. Also, the Captain email did eventually respond and was willing to help. So, if you have issues, try chat and/or email if you don't want to hang on the phone for a long time.

LOL - Sad but true, been there, done that!  All we can do is hope (not breath holding) Avidyne can/will branch out of their Jep-contract and allow Seattle Avionics to play!

While were talking Jepp/IFD Updates...

The aircraft
RV-10 with Skyview HDX an IFD440, dedicated IPad w/ ForeFlight for flight planning and a dedicated IPad for the IFD100 app emulating the IFD550.

I normally only update these types of subscriptions on a once a year schedule not an annual subscription.

Will the below pricing work for the above scenario?


Now to throw a kink into all of this...

What would be required to add an additional seat to have Jepp charts on my IPad?  Could these be all bundled up together?

The $299 package will get you Full USA Nav Data for your IFD440 and the IFD100, but will not include anything for Foreflight.

Adding charts depends on whether you want to see them on Foreflight or on IFD100.

I don't know what happens if there is a mismatch between the IFD100 emulation and the actual device it is connected to. I assume at minimum you won't get the AHRS function of the 550 since the 440 doesn't have it. Have you tried this? What does the IFD100 display when you press the SVS key.

The subscription you link to is what I have for my IFD540 and works fine with Foreflight and the IFD100 app. I have the IFD100 set to emulate the IFD540. Foreflight doesn't really have anything to do with the subscription.

I am considering Jepp charts, but I will likely get them through Foreflight. I don't find them that useful on my IFD540, and I don't use the IFD100 very much since the large screen on the panel is enough for me, except for approach charts. I prefer to use Foreflight for that function.

Note that the charts included in various bundles at the page you linked to are only for use with the Avidyne components (IFD540/550 and IFD100). They do not work with Foreflight. I think you can buy different licenses direct from Jeppesen that can be used in mobile devices. However, getting them from Foreflight provides for use in all the devices the FF license works on. So you get more seats by buying from FF than from Jepp.

Steve,

Will that also cover the db for the IFD Trainer app as well?

I am able to download the Jepp databases to the Trainer app, based on my Jepp subscription. If you don't have a subscription, they also provide demo databases.
