We’re excited to announce Bad Elf Wombat, a new portable accessory that simplifies how you download and install NavData updates into your avionics every 28 days. It removes the annoying steps of taking memory cards home or finding a computer at the FBO, allowing you to complete the entire update process using your iPad or iPhone, without leaving the cockpit.

Wombat also supports transferring other types of avionics data found on the SD card, USB key, or memory card used by your existing avionics. Depending on your avionics configuration, this can include flight logs, engine logs, flight plans, and user-configurable checklists. With Wombat, you can:

Perform NavData Avionics Updates
Download and install NavData updates without leaving the cockpit, from anywhere in the world, using only your iPad or iPhone!
Analyze Flight and Engine Logs
Collect flight and engine logs from your avionics after every flight, and upload them automatically to CloudAhoy or CirrusReports.
Sync iPad & Avionics Flight Plans
Use your favorite EFB app to create your flight plan at home, and load it into your avionics during pre-flight with minimal button presses.
 
 
How It Works

The Bad Elf Wombat accessory is battery powered, so you just turn it on and plug in your avionics memory card. Your iPad or iPhone connects via Wi-Fi to the Wombat device. Apps such as CloudAhoy, other EFB apps, and our free Wombat utility app can then write and read avionics files to and from the memory card. Once the data is transferred, you simply remove your card from the Wombat, and reinsert it into your panel. The memory card stays in the aircraft the entire time.

We wanted Wombat to earn a place in your flight bag, so it also functions as a back-up USB battery pack. It has 2 USB ports and can fast charge both your iPad (2.4A) and iPhone (1A) simultaneously. The rechargeable 9800mAh battery pack can recharge your iPad from 0 to 100% in just a few hours.
