Probably should have done my due diligence, but assumed an IPhone would run the IFD100 App. The 6.22" x 3.06" Plus 6 and 7 phones appear to be the perfect size to panel mount via the device linked below. I'm hopeful something will change going forward with the App; however in the meantime, I plan to install the mount with my IPhone 6 Plus to display Foreflight.

Keep in mind Foreflight doesn't do Synthetic Vision on the iPhone.
Also with the iPhone 8 coming out in September I would be cautious about installing a panel mount when it may be a different size.

Thanks Lance, that's great advise. I did not know that the IPhone 8 would become available in September. I'm really hoping Avidyne can develop a work around where the larger iPhones can serve as a platform for the IFD100 App. I currently have an Ipad Mini yoke mounted running Foreflight in my Bonanza. I have the panel space for a phone, but not another Mini. Not crazy about the idea of remote mounting another IPad or situating on my lap.
