With the FAA mandating that all aircrafts have Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) systems by January 1, 2020, we found four receivers you should look into if your plane still isn’t compliant.
Scout Dual-Band ADS-B Receiver for Inflight Weather & Traffic
This pocket-sized ADS-B receiver displays weather and traffic information on the ForeFlight Mobile app. With low power consumption, you can plug Scout into any portable 5V USB battery or existing USB power source in the aircraft and fly all day without draining your battery pack.
Garmin GDL 52 Portable SiriusXM/ADS-B Receiver
The GDL 52 combines SiriusXM coverage with the subscription-free weather and traffic features of an ADS-B “In” datalink. The GDL 52 also provides access to 150 channels of music, news, sports, and other entertainment programming, and you can stream information to other Garmin aviation portables or iPad tablets through Connext® wireless connectivity.
