    Stratus™ ADS-B Receiver - First generation

    The original Stratus is the easiest, least expensive way to get subscription-free weather on your iPad. Stratus is a totally wireless, portable receiver that streams NEXRAD radar, text weather, TFRs and GPS position to the ForeFlight app—all without a monthly subscription. Simply turn on Stratus, connect to your iPad and go flying. There are no wires, no subscriptions and no hassles.

    Why Stratus is different:Totally wireless. Other weather receivers require power cables, external antennas and messy installation. Stratus is completely portable. With an internal GPS, built-in ADS-B antenna and 8-hour battery, there are zero wires, and the non-slip case can be placed out of the way.Longest battery life. The last thing you need to worry about when you’re avoiding weather is whether the battery will die on your weather receiver. So Stratus has an 8-hour rechargeable battery built-in. No cigarette lighter is required, and you can fly all day on a single charge.Seamless integration with ForeFlight. Stratus is the only ADS-B receiver that works with ForeFlight, aviation’s most popular app. That’s because Stratus was designed from the ground up to integrate with the app, so you can view complete status information right from the moving map page. Stratus simply works the right way.Incredibly easy to use. With just one button and virtually no setup, you can take Stratus on every flight. After the first use, Stratus automatically connects to your iPad, so you can simply start ForeFlight and go flying. It’s perfect for renters, flying clubs and corporate flight departments.WiFi connection allows multiple iPads to connect to Stratus. ADS-B coverage varies by location and altitude – does not work on the ground in most locations. Coverage not available outside US. Comes with charging cable and 110V wall plug; charging cable works with all 2.1 amp cigarette lighter plugs as well. Measures 4.25" w x 5.75" d x 1" h. Weighs 11.4 oz. Made in USA.Requires ForeFlight Mobile app (version 4.5 or higher – free update available). iPad 2 or higher is strongly recommended for best performance. Also works with iPad Mini.“Stratus is not only a terrific product, but it’s one for which I’d give a very strong ‘buy’ recommendation to our readers.” —Robert Goyer, Flying Magazine

    Mounted antenna on front windshield. Still trying to find best orientation and location of antenna to improve reception in limited areas. Used it to prevent Stratus overheating problem.

    Pros

    Cons

    The antenna actually degraded Stratus performance. With Stratus on glare shield accuracy was 1-2 meters. Using antenna reduced that accuracy to 3-5 meters. I normally get 5 meter accuracy on my iPad without using the Stratus.

    This antenna is to improve ADS-B reception only. It does not replace the GPS antenna in the Stratus.

    very simple to use - stays stuck to window

    Cons

    doesn't seem to improve signal

    General Comments

    we're trying this out in Challenger 604 - so windshields are heated by internal wire elements which may be blocking the signal. The reception seems best when not using the antenna placing the Stratus unit on the glareshield allowing it to use its internal antenna

    Good for ADS-B, it's NOT a GPS antenna
    Pros

    Convenient, keeps the Stratus out of the sun if you ONLY want ADS-B info. That's important here in Arizona

    Cons

    Doesn't function as a GPS antenna, so the Stratus has to sit in the sun anyway if you want to use it as GPS. The Stratus GPS antenna seems fairly weak compared to my iPad internal GPS. Stratus won't pick up GPS signals when placed on the floor of my Cherokee. So
