2 weeks agoWould You Recommend?YesGood Equipment and probably Must Have.No problems. The Stratus 1S suction cup stays in place on the rear side of the passenger window of by Cessna 120 without any trouble. When someone eventually rides with me I intend to place it in my overhead skylight window. But for now its fine where it is. I’m using a Mini iPad mounted on my control yoke for the graphics and I have to say, its been a little bit getting used to having planes on my iPad screen but not immediately having a visual on them outside. Crazy. I used to think of myself as one who keeps my eyeballs out the window. (I mean a Cessna 120 doesn’t have much inside the cockpit to keep me constantly looking at. But I think it has made me more visually alert to whats going in outside than ever before. And that’s of course a good thing.April 4, 2018Purchased

I knew I’d need ads-b to have additional safety net from heavy traffic volume in Phoenix.Stratus 1S saved me from mid air collision today and I will count on it every time I go up.October 19, 2017Purchased

Because I was using the Stratus as backup I still had weather and terrain. Made ADM much easier. Sporty's even refunded $100 from my purchase price when I found out it was on sale within 30 days after.September 30, 2017Purchased
1 year agoEase Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesVery easy set up. the window mount worked the best for plane.
The real time weather and information is wonderful. It is not "out-going" The traffic is not so helpful - and as more planes are actually broadcasting, the traffic icons will make the map very busy. all traffic at all altitudes show up on the screen. It would be nice to filter out traffic not near my altitude.September 1, 2017Purchased
8 months agoResponse from Sporty's Pilot ShopThere is a traffic filter in ForeFlight. From the Maps page, tap the settings button at the top left (gear symbol) then select "Hide distant traffic."September 25, 2017John ZimmermanStaffDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesStratus 1SBought the 1S primarily for the GPS, traffic and weather interface with Firelight. The Stratus WIFI works seamlessly with the IPAD once we did the initial setup- just push the power button and it turns on and quickly links up with Foreflight. It does lose weather and traffic info at low altitudes depending on where you're flying, so keep that in mind.July 19, 2017Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 16 questions Browse 16 questions and 26 answersI usually fly on the weekend so the debate is to get the 1S or spend the extra money for the 2S. Not sure which one i want to purchase?BEST ANSWER: I bought the 1S because I wanted access to METARs and radar while in the air. From what I can tell, the advantage of the 2S is the AHARS (backup attitude indicator) and the dual-band traffic. However, the reviews told me that the traffic is incomplete anyway (I think it will be until everyone has ADS-B out anyway), and the airplanes I usually fly have AHARS and backup vacuum instruments, making the advantages of the 2S not worth the extra money.does the weather work in Canada?BEST ANSWER: The weather is obtain via ADS-B which is available only in the US.Single band vs dual band ads b?BEST ANSWER: I bought the Stratus 1S and flew from Florida to Oregon, single pilot, VFR and was very glad to have it. Weather in the cockpit is irreplaceable and helped in my decision making. Traffic was called out and visible but I was sure to keep in mind that it was only traffic that was equipped with ADS-B Out; there was still other traffic that wasn't depicted (important to remember). Did I miss that I didn't have synthetic vision? Nope. I flew day VFR and didn't need it.Do I have to have internet connection to link the s1 to my ipad?

Foreflight is only available for Apple. Garmin offers a similar app for android, Garmin Pilot.

Go to: https://www.faa.gov/next gen/programs/ads/ICM/I am planning on purchasing the stratus 1s.
