Improve ADS-B reception with this suction-cup mounted antenna

Like all ADS-B receivers, Stratus relies on ground stations for data. If you intend to mount the Stratus in a location that obstructs its view of ground-based towers, simply plug this antenna into the side of the unit and mount to a window. Includes a 5 ft cable, antenna and two suction cups for mounting. This antenna is for ADS-B only. It does not replace or supplement the GPS antenna in the Stratus.

Must have for Stratus
This antenna really improves usability of the Stratus. I had overheating problems before but non since using the antenna and getting the Stratus out of the direct sun. Reception of towers seems to be improved as well.

Great way to remote mount Stratus!
I have an older Mooney that has a very narrow glareshield - was using the Ram window suction cup mount which routinely would fall off the window and tumble the AHRS in the Stratus. Bought this and a GPS antenna so I could place the Stratus on the back shelf and prevent future tumbles. Reception is improved on ADS-B, the unit is well made and easy to mount.

Stratus great! Window mount not so much.
Not how far off center the Stratus is when both antennas are connected and the Stratus mounted into the window (suction cup) mount.
Note how far off center the Stratus is when in the window mount.

Response from Sporty's Pilot Shop
Note that the antennas will fit just fine if you flip the Stratus around, so that the antenna ports are on the side of the mount where there's less plastic on the mount.

Very glad I paid extra for this.
I bought this at the same time I bought my Stratus 2S. I'm very glad I did. Perfect complement to the device, removes the chore of mounting, and de-clutters the cockpit.

What difference
What a difference this made. Before it I was only getting 1 to 2 ground stations. Now I'm getting 6 or more.

Is this antenna only 978 or is it dual band? Since the 2S is dual band 1090 and 978, are you giving up 1090 ADS-B traffic by installing this?
Grant M on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Good question, I don't really know for certain and only used it for a little while and then installed the Aperaero ESG transponder to meet ADS-B out mandate. I would recommend you contact Appereo direct. I had a Q on my Sratus 2S and they responded very quickly.
Will the EXTERNAL ADS-B ANTENNA WITH 5 FT. CABLE FOR STRATUS (7290A) work with the Stratus 3? If not, is there an option for an external antenna? It looks like the External GPS Antenna for Stratus 2/2S/3 will work.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, this cable will work with Stratus 3. Both the GPS antenna and the ADS-B antenna ports are the same as the Stratus 2s.
I have a stratus PRX V2. What external antenna can I use with my unit?
Bruce G on May 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is compatible with that unit.
If you purchase the antenna only and hide the Stratus, will the GPS no longer work?
Brad G on Dec 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Probably not. The GPS signal is actually weaker than the ADS-B signal, so if the Stratus is mounted under the panel or sitting on the floor it may not get GPS reception.
Can be installed this antenna outside of the plane, on top of the fuselage?
nincraft on Sep 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it is for suction cup use. You could wire Stratus into your existing transponder antenna - see an avionics shop for that.
What connector does the cable use to plug into the Stratus?
Kate G on Sep 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The connector that plugs in to Stratus is MS-151 and the part that screws in to the antenna is RP-SMA (reverse polarity SMA).
