Satellite weather, radio, and GPS for ForeFlight

Having accurate in-flight weather in the cockpit is essential for safe flying, and SiriusXM Aviation Weather is the gold standard for pilots. Since it’s delivered by satellite, weather is available at any altitude (even on the ground), throughout the entire Continental US and even much of Canada. The compact SXAR1 is a powerful iPad companion, connecting to the ForeFlight app to deliver GPS position, SiriusXM weather, and even SiriusXM Radio.

Features:

  • Wirelessly connect to ForeFlight on your iPad or iPhone via Bluetooth (one device at a time)
  • View high-resolution Composite and Base Reflectivity Radar, Lightning, Cloud Tops, TFRs, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs/SIGMETs, PIREPs, and winds/temps aloft
  • Built-in WAAS GPS receiver delivers a precise moving map location
  • Small size fits into your pocket for easy portability and placement on the dash
  • Internal SiriusXM and GPS antennas (optional remote antenna available - our product number 1904A or 8032A)
  • Rechargeable internal battery with 8-10 hour life enables completely wireless operation in flight
  • New “Pilot For ForeFlight” subscription package ($39.99/month) offers more weather for less money
  • Add SiriusXM Radio for $10.99/month and listen to over 100 channels in flight (one headset connection at a time)

Bottom of SXAR1 features a non-slip coating for dash mounting. For window mounting, use the RAM X-Grip with suction cup. Package includes: SXAR1 receiver, protective sleeve, AC power adapter, USB charging cable, quick start guide. Measures 5”w x 1.2”h x 2.7”d. Weighs 1.25 lb. Requires subscription. 90-day warranty. While the SXAR1 will work in Canada, Sirius XM subscriptions are currently only available to US addresses.

A good little box with limitations
The box works well with the ipad. That said, I wish it worked with other apps. Where is the WSI app that it supposedly works with?

Other things I dislike:
1) It doesn't have any RS232 output, so can't interface to any panel equipment.
2) That wished-for interface doesn't support WSI formatted data. I'm desperately searching for a WSI RS232 formatted box that will allow me to access WSI weather like my now unsupported AV300 did.

works well, but not much value if you already have a Stratus
No need to own this if you own a stratus, specially at 3

Totally Meets My Expectations!
The SXAR1 does everything that it advertises. I have a PS Engineering Bluetooth audio panel and the SXAR1 is able to stream the XM audio through that and subsequently to all of the headsets in the plane.

Doesn't Work With Garmin GMA350C
I bought this to stream satellite radio into my Garmin GMA350C audio panel by bluetooth. It worked for about a minute, then the audio would cut out. I had to disconnect and reconnect to the audio panel, then the whole cycle repeated. I ended up returning it to Sporty's and going back to streaming from the SiriusXM app on my phone. That's not a stable source either, depending on cell signal, but it works OK. It did work fine if I wanted to stream just to my Lightspeed headset, but I want to stream to all seats not just mine. The unit works fine, it just doesn't play well with the GMA.

ForeFlight and SXAR-1, a good combination!
Even though Bluetooth is NOT the greatest communications method in the world, the SXAR-1 combined with ForeFlight and my iPad mini-4 is a great situational awareness tool!

Great for Jet Aircraft
I've been using the Stratus 2 for the last year in my Lear35, but found that it wasn't living up to the needs of a jet pilot. I upgraded to the SXAR1 and instantly fell in love with the new data I have on my iPad.
