Q: What if I already started the process in provisioning for AVANCE L5 + Gogo X3?

A: The great news is that both L5+X3 and LX5 leverage the same MB13 antennas and coax cabling. Of course, you can convert your plans to provision from L5+X3 to LX5. Please contact your authorized Gogo dealer for guidance on your particular situation.

Q: What if I already submitted a promo form for First to Fly (Gogo X3)?

A: The promotion is still valid and you have the choice to contact Gogo and update your Gogo 5G hardware option from the X3 to the LX5 for the same rebate amount. The form will not need to be resubmitted, if it already has been.

Q: I'm interested in Gogo Galileo (the upcoming LEO satellite connectivity solution from Gogo). Can I still get Gogo Galileo in the future if I get AVANCE LX5?

A: Yes. Install any AVANCE system (including AVANCE LX5), and you are on the path to Gogo Galileo. Gogo AVANCE customers will only need to add a fuselage-mounted antenna and run power and ethernet cables to receive global LEO coverage.
