My co-pilot was using a Stratus 2S. We both got the same traffic information. My $200 vs. his $900--it's a no-brainer.January 5, 2018Purchased

1 month agoPerformance4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesThrew both Scout (in the box) and iPad in the plane and fired up to depart. Installed Scout on windshield, power cord to USB and turned on iPad. Bluetooth was already hooked up and giving me traffic immediately! Waiting to check some weather and determine Reliability and Durability. Great value.December 20, 2017Purchased
1 month agoPerformance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat product!The Scout works great. It has already prevented a close traffic conflict. It’s low power drain and small size are perfect for my Aeronca Champ which has no electric system.December 15, 2017Purchased

Tried to use on 2 flights with my Fore flight still a no go. Had a Ping Buddy, need to see delete prior WIFI as Scout reloads the old Ping Buddy but will not work. Instructions are weak to say the least! Will try on next flight to see if works as promised.December 9, 2017Purchased
1 month agoPerformance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesImpressive productVery nice form factor that is easy to use in the cockpit is a major advantage of the Scout. (No more boxes sliding around on the dash, antennas in your line of vision, etc.) Also great price for full ADDS-B functionality, very easy to set up, and updates that are easy via ForeFlight are all features of this innovative, well thought out product. Unknown at this time how durable and reliable it will prove to be.December 6, 2017Purchased
1 month agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesFirst long cross country trip.First trip for use. Works well if you are near a tower. On a trip from KFLO to M01 had coverage 80% time. Picked up weather updates well. No weather for the trip. Sync was easy. Free battery was great. Only concern is receiver gets hot as a firecracker. Unsure if this is expected. Generally not a good sign for longevity for electronic devices.December 5, 2017Purchased

Thought it was Bluetooth but it’s WiFi so cannot connect to Scout and aircraft WiFi simultaneously. Therefore, no ownship position on ForeFlight nor use of ships WiFi while using Scout. Will probably work great in my 172 but not in the GVI.December 5, 2017Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 9 questions Browse 9 questions and 10 answersHow long will the Scout run on the 1500ma Holiday battery pack?BEST ANSWER: I had my scout set up to the 1500ma battery in my home and had it connected to my i pad and it lasted for about 7.5 hours. it will probably vary when you actually fly with it and its recieving ADS-B information.What battery pack will be included in the Holiday special?BEST ANSWER: A 1500ma battery pack is included.What exactly does it mean when it says the scout's "ADS-B traffic will be limited unless your airplane has ADS-B Out installed in the panel"?BEST ANSWER: ADS-B traffic is limited because of how the information is requested. When equipped with ADS-B out your transponder request traffic. If you are not ADS-B out equipped then traffic is limited by who is close to you and who requested the traffic. We have videos of how ads-b traffic works please go to www.ipadpilotnews.com and search the videos.Does the Scout (with Limited ADS-B traffic) satisfy the 1-1-2020 requirements, or do I need to buy a Transponder with WAAS?BEST ANSWER: No it does not - this is portable ADS-B In only. For 2020 you'll need an installed ADS-B Out system, like the Stratus ESG or the Garmin GTX 335.Can this be used with FltPlan go app?????????????BEST ANSWER: The Scout is exclusively used for ForeFlight.Does Scout only work with Foreflight or will it work with other EFBs as well? Specifically Jepp FD-Pro or FlightPlan Go?BEST ANSWER: The Scout device is only compatible with ForeFlight.Do I need a foreflight subscription to use this or will it work with the free version?BEST ANSWER: It will work with the free version until the 30-day free trial is up.Is it true that this would not have an artificial horizon on the Ipad as with the Stratus?BEST ANSWER: Correct - there is no GPS or AHRS in Scout, so there is no artificial horizon in ForeFlight. The synthetic vision display in ForeFlight will show basic terrain and obstacle information if your iPad has a GPS built in (the LTE models do). If your iPad does not have a GPS built in, you will need to add one since Scout does not provide this information.What is the website to configure Scout with Foreflight ?BEST ANSWER: The Scout does not need to be configured.
