You need something that can be hardwired sending a signal by RS232 to your display.
Problem is, if we're going to display our EC information with phones and tablets then we're really limited to WiFi or Bluetooth - neither of which offer especially stable or reliable connections.
You could push something in via the USB-C port, but USB-C connectors are not renowned for staying in place and wires everywhere is generally undesirable.
Portable solutions really have to find a way of making WiFi or Bluetooth do it reliably.
There are RS232 options with PAW to a glass display Garmin/Dynon etc. or alternatively if you don't have glass to the dedicated Aircrew traffic display unit.
The PowerFlarm Core unit is hardwire only RS232 anyway to either a dedicated V3+ display and /or Garmin /Dynon glass display.
