The Dual XGPS160 SkyPro brings GPS capability to your Apple iPad/iPod touch/iPhone, Android phones and tablets, Blackberry phones, Windows devices and laptops running Windows, OS X or Linux. If you have several phones/tablets/laptops in your household, and you’re looking for one GPS to work with them all, the XGPS160 is an excellent choice. The Dual XGPS160 works with popular electronic flight bag apps including EFB, ForeFlight, WingX Pro, and many others.

The Dual XGPS160 is very easy to use. Once you have paired via Bluetooth, the Dual GPS Receiver will automatically connect to the device it was last paired with and you will be able to use it with hundreds of apps that require GPS location information. The XGPS160 also comes with a useful GPS Status Tool app that is available free on the iTunes store and will show your location, the number of satellites you are connected to, the battery level, and more.

The XGPS160 includes a non-slip pad for use in your airplane, car or boat.

Dual xgps160 GPS

  • By Jim from Kirkland WA USA on Sunday, March 25, 2018
  • Pros: Works great.
  • Review: The unit works as expected. Connection is real easy. Bluetooth to my IPad was a snap.

Didn't meet my expectations

  • By Derek from UK United Kingdom on Thursday, June 22, 2017
  • Pros:
  • Review: I bought this product to interface into my iPad and use with JEPPFD-Pro. The interface worked perfectly, however, I have struggled to get continuous satellite coverage. I fly the A330 around Europe and the USA. It will lock on and give coverage for 90 minutes with no issues and then for the remainder of the flight no coverage at all. This has happened across the Atlantic and also within Europe.

Worth the extra $60

  • By A Customer on Tuesday, March 07, 2017
  • Pros: Accurate, battery life, easy assessable
  • Review: I have an I pad mini without the GPS installation in it. I was worried that I would not get very good service, but having this device has proved that theory wrong! Wonderful device with good accuracy and a nice battery life.

Great buy!

  • By Elizabeth from Lake Charles LA USA on Wednesday, October 19, 2016
  • Pros: Works great with IPad
  • Review: It works great, no problems with altitude. I like the 12 volt adapter that came with gps. Very accurate situational awareness tool!

It is not reliable

  • By Manuel from FL USA on Wednesday, October 05, 2016
  • Pros: None
  • Review: This product the XGPS160 does not work as promised however, the previous model XGPS150 works like a charm.
    Technical support representative at Dual was blaming the app and the IPad, and when I mentioned it worked with the XGPS 150, the Dual technician blamed the iPad. The Dual technical support representative had no clue of why the XGPS160 does not work and the XGPS150 does.

  • By Thomas from Peoria AZ USA on Friday, August 26, 2016
  • Pros: reasonably priced for receiving all satellites. Quick position acquisition if no interference from heated window.
  • Review: Had to return a lemon because it would not even pick up one satellite out in the open. The replacement picks up satellites okay in some airplanes with heated windows and others not at all. Have to put the unit up against a non-heated window in the back. Otherwise, it is doing good so far. Up to 5 other devises connected at the same time does not degrade the position like some other units.

Things You Should Know!

  • By Michael from Muskego WI USA on Thursday, June 02, 2016
  • Pros: iPads connect super fast and stay connected
  • Review: I plan on using this on our boat for daily navigation but haven't yet tried it, so as for the battery life I can't respond to that except to say that I think I'll have the 160 plugged into a usb port for constant power anyway... As far a connecting to devices... I have 3 iPads which connect right away. I have one MacBook Air and one Lenovo PC. I've found out that the Mac will connect to the 160 and then disconnect within 30 seconds... if I then start my Nav. app it reconnects and stays connected....On the PC it does the same exact thing..... One other thing about the PC is that I don't have bluetooth built into the PC. I use a little usb bluetooth dongle which works great and it's made by Targus.

It is not reliable

  • By Manuel from FL USA on Wednesday, October 05, 2016
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Signal not reliable and battery only last about 3 hours
  • Review: This product the XGPS160 does not work as promised however, the previous model XGPS150 works like a charm.

  • By Thomas from Peoria AZ USA on Friday, August 26, 2016
  • Pros: reasonably priced for receiving all satellites. Quick position acquisition if no interference from heated window.
  • Cons: My Dual 150 picks up better under a heated window (but it always looses itself at least once during a long trip. The Dual 160 so far hasn't lost itself on any long trip).
  • Review: Had to return a lemon because it would not even pick up one satellite out in the open.

Things You Should Know!

  • By Michael from Muskego WI USA on Thursday, June 02, 2016
  • Pros: iPads connect super fast and stay connected
  • Cons: Took awhile to figure it out but the Mac Laptop and PC Laptop do connect but then disconnect if there's no application running that requires GPS sentences. But as soon as you launch your navigation application it does reconnect and works fine. I talked to Dual and Targus but neither could explain why this happens...that's really disappointing considering it's their business.
  • Review: I plan on using this on our boat for daily navigation but haven't yet tried it, so as for the battery life I can't respond to that except to say that I think I'll have the 160 plugged into a usb port for constant power anyway...
