Portable ADS-B receivers were initially designed to send subscription-free weather to your favorite iPad app, but today they can do so much more. These 2nd and 3rd generation devices include an array of sensors that drive features on your iPad that rival and exceed most panel-mount avionics systems.
While the datalink weather features are as robust as ever, portable ADS-B receivers like the Stratus 2S also deliver GPS navigation, real-time traffic, attitude and synthetic vision display, barometric pressure altimeter and a flight data recorder.
To help pilots get the most out of the Stratus line of ADS-B receivers, Sporty’s Pilot Shop recently released 5 new videos in a series of tips for ForeFlight users.
