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 SkyRadar DX, subscription-free. The portable DX receiver provides ADS-B weather and traffic to FlyQ EFB (sold separately) for display on an iPad.

SkyRadar produced the first widely-used portable ADS-B receiver.  Now with their new DX model, you get top-end features at a rock-bottom price

The SkyRadar DX 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 SkyRadar DX also receives traffic information on both the 978 (ground to air) and 1090 (air to air) frequencies for maximum 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.
