Yes, but the tablet app doesn't work that way. Without an active subscription, the tablet app reverts to a time-limited trial/demo mode.>Q: Will the tablet simply stop working if my subscription expires?
A: No, the tablet will continue to function as an Android tablet, however the iFly EFB app will not function.<
Don't the current 7XX devices continue to work without a subscription, (although with outdated maps)?
I asked about this recently, and was told that iFly Connect only worked with the previous units. Pity because that was a great feature.Specifically among other things, wonder if ifly connect (which is nice easy way to update the SD card maps on the 740) will work with this tablet. One thing I like on my 740 is I can leave the 740 in the plane and bring the SD card home to update it with iFly connect.
That is mostly true... but only the 740 units will drive an autopilotAP makes their software to run on all platforms, so I have to believe they won't try to make autopilot a proprietary feature for the new device. My Tripltek is out for delivery today. Not sure when it will get installed and tested, but I do have two 740b units that I expect to be sold pretty cheap once I see the Tripltek in action.
Cable Integration: Ports for power and serial data output, allowing power supply from the aircraft and connectivity to autopilots and NMEA-based devices. Pogo pins automatically connect the tablet, eliminating the need for manual plugging.That is mostly true... but only the 740 units will drive an autopilot

*Note NMEA functionality coming soon as a software upgrade to the iFly EFB app.
What Chad quoted is from the marketing bullets specifically for the new Adventure Pilot tablet. It does not apply to all tablets in general.That would be great if all tablets will support this!
