FAA-Provided ADS-B Weather and Traffic in the Cockpit
Introduced more than a decade ago by the FAA, ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast)
provides weather and traffic information to all aircraft equipped with an ADS-B
receiver, such as the Dual XGPS 170, subscription-free. The portable Dual XGPS-170
receiver provides ADS-B weather and traffic to AOPA FlyQ EFB (sold separately)
for display on an iPad.

The XGPS 170 provides the following ADS-B In services: Flight Information Service-Broadcast
(FIS-B). FIS-B provides regional and continental NEXRAD radar imagery from the National
Weather Service, as well as NOTAMs, METARs, TAFs, PIREPs, winds aloft and other
valuable in-flight weather services. FIS-B also includes information on temporary
flight restrictions (TFR) and special use airspaces (SUA). *
The Dual XGPS-170 also receives traffic information on the 978 (ground to air) frequency for local traffic coverage. FlyQ EFB displays this traffic using intuitive colors that signify threat levels, future-position lines so you can understand where the targets will be in 2 minutes, and an optional filtering system to remove targets that pose no threat so you can focus on ones that might.
Useful Status Tool App
Similar to the popular XGPS150, the XGPS170 also comes with a useful Status Tool App (available Free on the iTunes store). The app is a simple utility application,
which shows detailed device and reception information.
Highly Accurate GPS
The XGPS-170 includes a WAAS GPS receiver with fast location acquisition (under 30 seconds), with position updates up to 10 times per second. The GPS location information
is wirelessly transmitted via Bluetooth to the iPad.
The removable ADS-B antenna on the XGPS-170 allows pilots to connect to an external
antenna on the aircraft. (This should be a dedicated, passive transponder antenna.)
Wireless Bluetooth Connectivity
The XGPS170 wirelessly sends GPS and ADS-B data to up to two iPad devices simultaneously,
leaving each iPad free to connect to other wireless devices via Bluetooth or WiFi.
Bluetooth Advantage over WiFi
Because the XGPS170 uses Bluetooth, the WiFi connection on your iPad is left free
for other uses, such as connecting to the Internet (for weather services, flight
plan updates, etc.) or to another accessory like an AHRS. There are no hassles with
switching between networks and no service interruptions.
Built-In Rechargeable Battery
The XGPS170 has a built-in rechargeable battery that lasts for up to 5 hours of
continuous use. The included 12-30V cigarette lighter adapter charges the receiver
(or the iPad) in a car or in an aircraft. The XGPS170 can also be charged using
the wall charger that comes with the iPad
Useful Non-Slip Pad Included
The included non-slip pad holds the receiver securely in place on an aircraft's glareshield, car's dashboard, or boat's console.
Set Up is a Breeze
It takes less than a minute to pair your iPad with the Dual XGPS-170 and the receiver will remember your iPad the next time you want to use it.
