special use airspace (SUA).
The removable ADS-B antenna allows pilots to connect the receiver
directly to an aircraft's external antenna.

by John from Andover NJ USA
For the most part, very good. Battery life is excellent, connectivity is excellent, the only problem I have is with GPS accuracy. Using Avare I can use both my tablet and external GPS signals simultaneously. When doing this the information toggles back and forth constantly with the tablet being more accurate. Maybe this is just a issue with Avare but it's annoying.

On Wednesday, July 25, 2018 a customer asked:
Q: What is the difference between the Dual XGPS170 and the Dual XGPS170D?
The upgraded XGPS170D, a weather and traffic receiver replaces the XGPS170 (which Dual sold for many years). The main difference with the 170D compared to the 170 is that the 170D adds a 1090 MHz receiver. This dual band reception allows it to receive more traffic targets, especially helpful for airplanes that do not have ADS-B Out installed already. Since 1090 MHz has become the most popular option for ADS-B Out upgrades, the 170D should enable pilots to see more air-to-air traffic targets, even when out of range of a ground station.
