The iLevil series is, in essence, a multi-channel sensor designed to provide data streams to other products, most typically a tablet running navigation apps, but also to permanently mounted equipment in Experimental aircraft.
With dual-band ADS-B In capability, the unit is both iOS- and Android-compatible. The unit isn’t compatible with either ForeFlight Mobile or Garmin Pilot, both of which use proprietary ADS-B/GPS sensors.
The iLevil 3’s optional GPS source, claims the company, meets the position source performance requirements for ADS-B Out in the experimental aircraft market. (The unit doesn’t, however, provide ADS-B Out capability, but the signal for an ADS-B Out unit.) The iLevil 3 also has the ability to communicate with currently installed transponders (Mode-S) to activate extended squitter, meeting the ADS-B mandate for 2020 on experimental and light sport aviation.
In addition, the unit accepts a standard SD memory card, which records and saves all your flight information. The info then can be transferred into an Excel spreadsheet to gain a clear picture of your flight (position, airspeed, altitude, attitude, etc.). The data is also saved in FDR and GDX format, which allows users to replay their flight in an X plane flight simulator, Google Earth and more.
The iLevil 3 AW and SW releases on July 25, 2016 at AirVenture, and the starting prices remain the same on both units as previous iLevil products—$1,195 for the SW and $1,395 for the AW.
