ForeFlight users already have a web planner available to them.  For those of us wedded to Garmin Pilot a compatible website extension would be much appreciated.   Both of these iOS based planners are excellent, but GP works better in the airplane with my all Garmin panel.  FF does not work on Android devices while GP does, meaning more AOPA members may utilize a Garmin/AOPA web planner

I think this is a key point. As a Garmin Pilot and GPS user, I would appreciate a web flight planner that isn't tied to Foreflight but would work generically (at least) for the widest variety of pilots.

Garmin as a company is very much a closed-system.  I don't see this being a viable option.

Thank you for taking the time to give us honest feedback and share your thoughts. We are working with several companies in the industry to provide a replacement option(s) for those who wish to continue to utilize a desktop Flight Planning application. While we didn’t have the option to keep the current Flight Planner going, we do understand the value of having a desktop tool. We are also exploring opportunities for those who wish to use an EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) to have this option from our industry partners at the best price possible. We will communicate all details as soon as they become available. Thank you for being valued members and AOPA pilots.
