Useful flight info right to your iPad® or Android™ tablet
Dual's XGPS170 Bluetooth® Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) receiver makes your Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) app much more convenient by providing accurate ADS-B weather and traffic information right to your tablet without costly subscription fees, no matter where you fly in the United States. Some key ADS-B services you'll find transmitted by this handy receiver include:
FAA Traffic Information Service Broadcast (TIS-B): air traffic information from ATC radar and broadcast from ground radio stations
ADS-B position reports directly from nearby aircraft operating at 978 MHz
FAA Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) info from the National Weather Service, including NEXRAD radar, winds aloft, pilot reports, and more
Works with several different EFB apps
The compact XGPS170A receiver transmits the ADS-B info to your tablet, where your EFB app can take advantage of it. You don't need to feel limited to a small number of compatible EFB apps — the info will work with a variety of apps, including Hilton Software WingX Pro7, Global NavSource EFB, Digital Sectional i1000, and Reader Plates, as well as many other non-EFB apps that use GPS location information. And you can download Dual's free Status Tool app for the XGPS170 to view detailed device and reception information right on your tablet.
Easy to set up and use
It takes less than a minute to pair your device with the XGPS170 receiver, and the receiver will remember your device the next time you use it. The receiver acquires most locations with high accuracy in under 30 seconds, and can update position up to 10 times per second. You can use the included non-slip pad to mount the XGPS170 securely, whether it's on your car's dashboard, a boat console, or your plane's glareshield.
The receiver's built-in rechargeable battery lasts up to 5 hours of continuous use, and Dual includes a 12-30V cigarette lighter adapter for charging in the aircraft or car. It'll also work with many standard tablet wall USB chargers. The detachable ADS-B antenna allows you to connect the receiver directly to the plane's external antenna if you choose. And you can use the XGPS170 with almost any app that requires location information, including golfing, hiking, geocaching, and car and marine navigation.
The XGPS170 also includes LED indicators for the following statuses: low battery, Bluetooth, GPS, and ADS-B signal.
Bluetooth for a better connection
The XGPS170's Bluetooth compatibility means your tablet's Wi-Fi connection isn't being slowed down or prevented from using another accessory. You'll get a seamless signal all flight long, without any service interruptions or the hassle of switching between networks. And it can pair with two Bluetooth devices at the same time so your co-pilot can follow along.
