The BlueMax is a bluetooth adapter that enables wireless streaming of aircraft (systems and navigation)
data to a portable device. When paired with the free BlueMAX mobile app (available for iOS and Android)
the user’s mobile device becomes a portable multifunction display and data recorder.
Data streaming and logging in real time, eliminating the hassle of manual downloads. All data can be
viewed directly on the BlueMax Android/iOS app and can be immediately uploaded to FlightData.com for
Automatically stream data to the cloud using an existing cellular device (no additional data plans or subscriptions required).

BlueMAX monitors the data quality from CHT and EGT probes, and will flag those that appear to have bad
connections, helping you make informed decisions about whether a high temperature is real or an
Data is logged once per second instead of once every 6 seconds on the Avidyne MFD. This captures more
detailed information and makes post-flight analysis of GAMI sweeps and magneto checks more useful.
With BlueMAX installed a failure of your MFD becomes a minor issue, and if you’re faced with a
multi-thousand dollar fee to repair the MFD you may choose to replace it with an iPad and BlueMAX.
Not only is data analysis on the ground easy, but BlueMAX lets you graph the data for your current
flight while still in the air! Something changed? See exactly what happened and when.
BlueMAX allows you to set your own limits on engine parameters. Think 420F is too high for redline CHT?
Choose your own. Set caution limits where you want them and be alerted when they are exceeded.
BlueMAX enables you to track the contents of each fuel tank in flight. It will prompt you to switch
tanks when the imbalance between sides requires it.
If connected to a GPS source, BlueMAX provides a moving map and route information, with fuel at
destination and other information.
BlueMAX is a simple 1 hour installation in most Avidyne and ARNAV Cirrus aircraft. It’s also compatible
with many JPI engine monitors.
Production hardware is shipping now, and installation has been approved (see below). Apps for Android and
iOS devices are available on the Play Store and the App Store.
Installation of BlueMAX has been approved by EASA, which directly covers all countries in the EASA
This also means it can be installed in other countries that have bilateral agreements with EASA, including
Australia, the USA and Canada.
Other countries may also accept EASA approval under a bilateral agreement.
