Honeywell has announced the latest version of its GoDirect toolkit mobile application for airlines using its JetWave connectivity hardware.

JetWave connects to Inmarsat’s global, high-speed in-flight Wi-Fi service, GX Aviation.

The tool uses an Apple iPhone or iPad application to help airlines easily troubleshoot any potential internet issues, allowing them to get their aircraft fixed more quickly than before so passengers can continue to enjoy high-speed inflight Wi-Fi anywhere around the world.

The updated GoDirect Toolkit application makes it easy for maintenance personnel to pull performance information and maintenance logs from the JetWave high-speed data system and provide those logs back to Honeywell’s Network Operating Centre for immediate analysis and diagnosis.

The latest version of Honeywell’s GoDirect Toolkit application will be available for airlines and maintenance providers starting this summer.

The Honeywell JetWave equipment consists of a fuselage-mounted directional antenna and associated RF and modem hardware. You can read Get Connected’s test report of Inmarsat’s GX Aviation product aboard a Lufthansa Airbus A319.

During the test, download speeds of up to 14.2Mbps we recorded.
