The smallest, least expensive way to add weather to ForeFlight

Datalink weather from the FAA’s ADS-B system is changing the way pilots fly, with subscription-free radar, METARS, TAFs, TFRs, and more. Now it’s easier than ever to add this potentially lifesaving technology to your iPad, with Scout. It measures less than 4” tall and weighs less than an ounce, but receives both 978 MHz and 1090 MHz frequencies and connects to ForeFlight via WiFi. At only $199, Scout is a reliable and affordable upgrade to your electronic flight bag.

Features:

  • Subscription-free ADS-B weather, including radar, METARs, TAFs, PIREPs, AIRMETs, TFRs and more
  • Dual band receiver (978 MHz and 1090 MHz) delivers traffic to your iPad
  • Built-in WiFi allows for wireless connection to multiple devices in one cockpit
  • Measures only 3.35” x 0.84” x 0.34” and weighs 17 grams
  • Transfer flight plans to your co-pilot's iPad using ForeFlight’s cockpit sharing feature
  • Easy firmware upgrades, delivered through ForeFlight Mobile
  • Comes fully assembled – just plug in and go flying

Includes suction cups for mounting on side window, USB power cable, and carrying case.

 

Notes:

  • Does not include GPS – requires internal iPad GPS or external Bluetooth GPS for position
  • Does not include internal battery – connect to USB charger or external battery for power
  • As with any portable ADS-B receiver, traffic will be limited unless your airplane has ADS-B Out installed in the panel

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"?
Andrew F on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Andrew - this limitation exists for any portable ADS-B receiver. If you have not equipped your aircraft with ADS-B Out, then you are not fully participating in the ADS-B system and you won't see all traffic targets displayed on your iPad. If your aircraft is equipped to meet the 2020 mandate, then you will see all traffic within a 30 mile diameter and 3500 ft. As Andrew suggests, search "ADS-B Traffic 101" on iPadPilotNews for a helpful article (sorry I can't post the direct link here in this reply)
