The XGPS170D combines a WAAS GPS and a dual band (978/1090 MHz) ADS–B receiver to weather & traffic information for aviation apps. The receiver works with many EFB apps including AcPlan EFB, eKneeboard, FltPlan Go, FlyQ EFB, iFlyGPS, WSI Pilotbrief, and WingX Pro7. It connects to up to 2 devices via Bluetooth, and is compatible with iPad, Android and Windows tablets. The internal battery lasts 5 hours of continuous operation, and the receiver can be charged with the included 12–30V adapter and wall charger. A non–slip pad is also included for convenience.

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 XGPS170D, subscription–free. The ADS-B weather & traffic data is displayed on a compatible EFB app (sold separately) on an iPad, Android or Windows tablet.

The XGPS170D provides the following ADS–B In services:
1. 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).
2. Traffic Information Service Broadcast (TIS–B). The TIS–B information is air 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.*

(*ADS–B traffic broadcasts are only transmitted from the ground transmitters in response to an ADS-B Out transponder operating on your aircraft or another aircraft in the area.)

3. The XGPS170D also receives position reports directly from a nearby aircraft operating ADS-B Out transponders on 978 MHz and/or 1090 MHz frequencies.

Wireless Bluetooth Connectivity to Two Devices
The XGPS170D wirelessly sends GPS, AHRS and ADS-B data via Bluetooth to up to two devices simultaneously. The XGPS170D can be positioned up to 30ft. away from the connected tablet or a smartphone.

Set Up is a Breeze
It takes less than a minute to pair your mobile device with the XGPS170D, and the receiver will remember your device and reconnect automatically the next time you turn it on.

Built–In Rechargeable Battery
The XGPS170D has a built-in rechargeable battery that lasts for up to 5 hours of continuous use. The included 12-30VDC cigarette lighter adapter charges the receiver in a car or in an aircraft. The XGPS170D can also be charged using the included wall charger, or the wall charger that comes with your tablet.

Very impressed of the XGPS 170D!
I fly in, out, and around the DC SFRA and I am just in awe of the functionality and performance of this device! I've been using the XGPS 170D for a little over 2.5 weeks by itself, as an external GPS for driving navigation, with Avare, Fltplango, and the Naviator apps for flying and it has performed perfectly, each and every time.
Just follow the instructions/directions on how to use the device with an EFB app and you'll be in awe, also!
I can honestly say, that I am very glad I made the decision to invest in Dual's XGPS 170D!
