The new XGPS170 GPS and ADS-B Weather Receiver from Dual Electronics

Enhance your situational awareness and safety with the new XGPS170, which provides ADS-B Traffic and Weather data directly to an EFB app on your iPad or Android tablet, without subscription fees.
FAA's ADS-B Weather and Traffic Information 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 XGPS170, subscription-free. The portable XGPS170 ADS-B In receiver provides ADS-B weather and traffic broadcasts, to a variety of compatible EFB apps (sold separately), for display on an iPad or Android tablet.
The XGPS170 provides the following ADS-B In services:
  • The FAA's Traffic Information Service Broadcast (TIS-B), which is traffic information obtained from ATC radar and broadcast from ground radio stations. This information greatly enhances pilots' situational awareness and aids their visual orientation of nearby aircraft traffic.

  • The XGPS170 can also receive ADS-B position reports directly from a nearby aircraft operating on 978 MHz.

  • The XGPS170 additionally provide traffic information from some aircraft operating ADS-B Out equipment at 1090 MHz through the ADS-R rebroadcast from ground stations.

  • The FAA's Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) provides information from the National Weather Service, including NEXRAD radar, as well as winds aloft, pilot reports and other valuable weather services. FIS-B also includes information on temporary flight restrictions (TFR) and special use airspace (SUA).
The removable ADS-B antenna allows pilots to connect the receiver directly to an aircraft's external antenna.
Broad EFB Apps Support
The XGPS170 does not restrict you to just one EFB app. The XGPS170 will work with a number of EFB apps, including WingX Pro7 from Hilton Software, EFB from Global NavSource, i1000 from DIgital Sectional and Reader Plates. Check back frequently as we will be continually adding new apps to this list.

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 XGPS170 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 Apple and Android devices.
Useful In and Out of the plane
At your destination, take this small and portable receiver with you to the car, on a boat or hiking. The XGPS170 works with pretty much any app that requires location information, including apps for car and marine navigation, golfing, geocaching, hiking and many others.

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 XGPS170, and the receiver will remember your iPad the next time you want to use it.

Universal Design for Many Apps and Devices
The XGPS170 is compatible with all iPad, iPod® touch and iPhone® devices, as well as other Bluetooth-enabled (SPP required) smart phones, tablets and laptops (Android, Blackberry, Windows and OS X devices).

In addition to EFB apps, the XGPS170 works with most apps that require GPS, including apps for car navigation, marine chart plotting, golfing range finders, geocaching, hiking and many others.
