Integration with Garmin Pilot on Android

Would like integration with Garmin Pilot on Android. You recently announced importing flight plans to Garmin Pilot on ios. When will this be available for Garmin Pilot on Android?

The ability to send flight plans to Garmin Pilot on iOS uses a technique that is built into the iOS operating system. This same technique is not available in the Android operating system. In order to integrate the Android version of Garmin Pilot with our flight planner, Garmin will need to build a custom integration using our development tools. We provide these integration tools for free but the work effort is on Garmin's side at that point. We have had discussions with them about using our development tools so they are aware of the capability. I'll be happy to pass along this request to them but you may also want to send them a message directly as one of their customers asking for the capability.
