Dual XGPS150A Bluetooth GPS Receiver

The Dual XGPS150A 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 XGPS150 is an excellent choice. The Dual XGPS150 works with popular electronic flight bag apps including EFB, ForeFlight, WingX Pro, and many others.

The Dual XGPS150 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 XGPS150 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 XGPS150 includes a non-slip pad for use in your airplane, car or boat. A two-piece armband is also included for using the Dual GPS during hiking, geocaching, jogging, cycling and other outdoor activities.

My iPad / iPhone already has a GPS - why do I need this?
The iPhone and the 3G models of the iPad include an internal GPS, however the internal GPS is made for use on the ground and is not very reliable in the air.  You will find that you experience intermittent outages from the internal GPS while flying.  The Dual XGPS150 is a WAAS-enabled, super reliable and accurate, GPS receiver that you can count on both on the ground and in the air.

The Dual Bluetooth XGPS150A features:

  • Completely portable
  • Wirelessly connects to devices via Bluetooth
  • High-sensitivity GPS receiver works with most apps that require GPS
  • Built in rechargeable battery. The battery powers the GPS for up to 8.5 hours of continuous use and recharges in about 3 hours.
  • Works with a huge number of apps
  • Turns your iPod touch, iPad, iPhone, or other device into a global navigation device
  • Provides location anywhere in the world
  • Dramatically reduces the battery drain on your phone or other device
  • Small - only 2.25” square, 0.75” deep. 1.8 ounces.

Includes:

  • Non-slip dashboard pad
  • Adjustable strap to attach to an arm or a backpack
  • 12-30 Volt cigarette lighter charger

Technical Highlights:

  • WAAS/EGNOS compatible
  • Accuracy: +/-2.5m (CEP)
  • Fast location acquisition times: under 30 secs (warm or cold start)
  • Position updates: at least once per second
  • Maximum speed: 1000 kts / 1150 mph
  • Maximum altitude: 18,000 m / 59,000 ft
  • Supports both NMEA and Apple protocols
  • Firmware updateable through USB port
  • Recharges in 2.5 hours

Excellent Tool!

Pros: Small, reliable and easy to use!

Works Well

So far so good
by Mark from Bradenton FL USA 

Pros: Ease of operation
Cons: Battery loses charge quickly after a few days.
Review: Only used it once which explains the 4 stars and not 5.
Fully charges in about 2.5 hours but seems to lose its charge quickly over 1 week so be sure to check the charge before you need it. Be sure to download the free app which gives you an instant read on your signal and how much battery remains.. Easy to use.

Exactly as advertised....
by A Customer from Orlando,FL 

Pros: Very accurate in all conditions
Cons: Can't really find any
Review: Great little gizmo....Had it for a year or two as I still fly GA recreationally even though the airline is my primary flying gig. I use it with fltplan.com GO app and works great. Even took it with me on a trip in the jet and it matched exactly what the ship was telling me dead on at Mach .81 at FL400. Would buy again.

DUALS XGPS150
by HAK from California 

Pros: Fast signal response great size easy to haul around, great for aviation
Cons: Wish battery was a few hours longer, only talks to one unit.
Review: The little unit rocks! I took it to the orient and guys bugged me to death to sell it, which I eventually did and got another one.

Worked great all over at altitudes etc. Just let it warm up for 30 minutes when you go to a new location like a new country, let it get established and you are good to go.

Sometimes you need to reboot your entire system but then its great. Used it all over town, linked to my cell phone or ipad. Upgraded to a XGPS160, works even better! Never had any hick-ups with the thing. I loved using it all the time and would buy another one if need be. Very cost effective!

A fantastic product
by Russ from Redlands CA USA 

Pros: All pro
Cons: Couldn't think of anything against this product.
Review: Although I have gps in my e-pad and also extra program for gps, I would lose contact with the satellites. Once I got the dual xgps I had no problems. Contact was maintained throughout the flights.

I would certainly recommend.

Dual gps receiver initial experiences
by oran from Warren PA USA 

Pros: does what it is supposed to
Cons: can't think of any aside from mentioned
Review: I've been using the receiver with my iPad3, for a sum total of 4 hours so far. Strong Bluetooth connections, likewise with a wide variety of satellite signals. The Dual Receiver seems to work best when it is lying flat, its back down, on a sturdy surface. Put differently, red knob facing upwards. Otherwise signals weak or nonexistent.
It does not work with each and every gps iPad application, so trials are best when used first, and only purchased later when compatibility is confirmed.

Inconsistent signal
by Jeff from Mount Juliet TN USA 

Pros: Indicates position on charts!
Cons: Undependable signal
Review: With the unit on top of the glare shield, it takes a bit to begin working (showing your position on the chart). Once it begins working, it will from time to time, stop showing position as though it's not receiving the satellite signal it needs. When it works, it's an incredible tool, showing your position on sectional charts, approach plates and low altitude enroute charts. Just don't depend on it.

3 star rating is generous
by A Customer from Washington, D.C. 

Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Not completely reliable
Review: The device frequently has problems pairing up with my ForeFlight-equipped IPads, sometimes taking 20 minutes or longer for the IPad to recognize the GPS unit. I often have to reset my IPad's network settings, which results in all my stored network connections and passwords being lost.

The device, despite being charged for hours, often will register under 90% percent battery life upon startup.

The unit has failed on two separate occasions in flight, both times at low altitudes while navigating in controlled airspace.

Will not work at high altitudes
by A Customer from St. Joseph, Missouri 

Pros: Works as advertised below 39,700 feet.
Cons: Will not work at the altitudes where we fly!
Review: It works just fine until we climb above 39,700 feet. When we hit that altitude it stops providing any location information. It still shows that it is connected however. We use it in a Learjet Model 45 and always fly at 40,000 feet and above. So this does not work for us. Contacted the manufacturer who informed us that they were aware of the problem, that it was the chip used in the unit we had and we were instructed to return it and they would ship out one with a chip that would work at higher altitudes. We had to pay shipping to ship it back. A replacement unit arrived about a week later. Same problem. It quits providing location information at exactly 39,700 feet. Their answer was to ship it back again and they would replace it. Every time I send it back it cost us another $20.00.

Works as advertised.
by A Customer from Lees Summit MO USA 

Pros: Small, light weight, stays put.
Cons: Non that I've found so far.
Review:

The unit paired easily with my ipad and connects every time I turn it on. I've only used it once in flight, but the tracking with AOPA's FlyQ EFB software was dead on.

I also use it with a GPS app in my iPad. If I zoom in tight, it will show me changing lanes on the interstate. That's accuracy!

DUAL XGPS150A in a 757 over the NAT or WATRS
by Glenn from Astoria NY USA 

Pros: small, easy to place,
Cons: weak battery life
Review: This is a good product. It performs as expected. I am using it for North Atlantic and WATRS area. It works from taxi out to taxi into the gate and up to FL 400 (40,000). Its important to have it plugged into an external battery. I use this in conjunction with Jepps and and IPAD 2.  For 100 dollars a great value.

Just what the doctor ordered
by Andrew from Mackay QLD Australia 

Pros: Size, simplicity to use
Cons: Charge cord not accommodated by dashmat provided
Review: Really let down with my purchase of the iPad 4 when I went with the non 4G one and after purchase realized that model was without GPS. After a lot of surfing I found the xgps150 and thought this might be a way of getting my iPad back up to spec ... Well it performs fantastically well right out of the box. Little teething problems getting them to talk to each other but after a reboot and getting the sequence right it has performed flawlessly. Down side is that the charge cable isn't accommodated by the dashboard mat so in a car can be a little challenge to charge and use at the same time without it falling off the dash (we do a lot of 4wding). Also thought it might be nice to hook up with the use of a cord rather than only via Bluetooth but these as only small gripes. The app suggested to use is an excellent interface keeping you aware of your exact position elevation signal strength and battery life. All in all very happy with my purchase. It is priced competitively but postage I feel was a little over what it should have been to Australia.

drops out with no warning
by A Customer from Honolulu HI USA 

Pros: Allows georeferencing between islands in Hawaii, which the iPad mini doesn't
Cons: Georeferencing stops with no indication of a problem
Review: I fly in Hawaii between islands.

Without the XGPS150, there would be no GPS coverage between islands with the assisted GPS in the iPad Mini and the FlyQ program from AOPA and Seattle Avionics. That's a good thing. The georeferencing stopped at the edge of Oahu when flying over water without the XGPS.

Here's the problem. While the FlyQ georeferencing now works between islands, I have to keep my eye on it as the plane will stop moving with no warning. Another problem is the heading shown on the FlyQ differs significantly (as much as 90 degrees difference) from the direction the plane is pointing in the georeferenced sectional. It works on the instrument approach procedure.

Here's how I know this. I have a Garmin 296 which has NEVER had any such problems between islands in the last 4 years of using it. The Garmin indicates my georefenced position to cross check the FlyQ and the XGPS. The Garmin and the XGPS sit side by side on the glareshield so it's not a problem with satellite signals. The XGPS shows many satellites in the setup with strong signals, so it's not a loss of signal problem.

Works great with iPad. No cables or connections.
by George I. Robb's from Saint Cloud FL USA 

Pros: Easy to program into the iPad
Cons: Wish a 110 volt charge came with it or that one would be available.
Review: As a sport student, I've used it in conjunction with my iPad and it will certainly help you stay on course. Well worth the money. The only thing I've found is that I have to keep it charged through the lighter in my vehicle since I'm a student and don't want to leave it in the plane.

Doesn't work with Nexus 7
by bajadrifter from Huntersville NC 

Pros: good for iPad
Cons: not for latest Android tablets
Review: I bought this unit to use Garmin Pilot on my Nexus 7 Android table. It turns out that the XGPS150A does not work with the latest release "jellybean" of the Android operating system. I called Dual customer service and they said they are aware of the problem and they have their engineers working on it. That was a week ago and still no update.

The XGPS work well with the iPad...just not yet with the highly desirable Nexus 7.

Very impressed. Love it!
by Stephen from Haltom City TX USA 

Pros: small, long battery, easy to use, super easy to set up.
Cons: None found yet
Review: I use it for my iPad with ForeFlight and it really works great. I just turn it on, throw it on the dash and try not to forget it when I put the plane up. It always locks on to plenty of satellites and the accuracy is very nice. My opinion is that it is well worth the cost. Especially since you can use it for all kinds of devices.

Easy connection, FAST, accurate!
by Tom from Hampton GA USA 

Pros: Fast and Accurate!
Cons: None
Review: The Dual XGPS150 connected to my iPhone's Bluetooth easily and quickly, and was then quickly found enough satellites to enable GPS functionality, much more quickly and accurately than the GPS that's built into the iPhone or iPad. I placed the Dual unit into the included rubber dash pad, placed it on the glareshield, and forgot about it. Nothing to do but to "GPS" around the sky! The downloadable software utility is useful for determining battery strength, amongst other things. The battery lasted approximately 6 hours of use, still had 40% remaining, but I went ahead and charged it at this point. This is a must-have!

Like the Bad Elf, but harder to misplace
by A Customer from Iowa City IA USA 

Pros: Compared to the Bad Elf has the advantage that it's bigger and you handle it separately from the iPad. So it's harder for me to lose it.
Cons: Compared to the Bad Elf, it has the disadvantage that you have to charge it up, although it seems to hold its charge longer than the iPad it
Review: I had a Bad Elf external GPS, and it worked great until I lost it. The problem with the Bad Elf is that it is easily dislodged from its receptacle in the iPad when you handle the Ipad. When it falls off, you're unlikely to notice that it's gone, and you might have trouble finding it. I lost mine once, somebody found it in a parking lot and put it in lost-and-found so that I recovered it, but then I lost it again for good. I don't have a habit of losing other stuff - just the Bad Elf.

So I then got the Dual external GPS to replace my lost Bad Elf. It works just as well.

by Mark from Centerville, IA USA 

Pros: Very accurate and great battery life.

Review: It works very well once you get it set up correctly. It works right out of the box for the iPad 2 and takes reading the manuals and being a bit patient with the Android. It works perfect with Foreflight on Ipad and Anywhere map on the Android 7" Samsung Tab.

Works great with Foreflight on iPad3

Review: No issues using the GPS with Foreflight on the iPad3. Accurately shows position (confirmed while over flying an airstrip under my path) and altitude. Easy to setup and quickly establishes the Bluetooth connection both initially and in flight. Download the Dual GPS status app to test the unit before you fly and there will be no worries.

An asset to the cockpit!
by Ray S. from CO USA 

Pros: Everything about it.
Cons: Can't think of any.
Review: I recently purchased the Duel XGPS150 and feel that it was the best $100 I've spent on a navigation tool so far. I have an iPad without an internal GPS, and needed a unit so I could use my ForeFlight software. This little unit works like a champ! I just turn it on, set it on top of the instrument panel in my Piper Cherokee 235, and forget about it. Just make sure it's charged before you fly, and it will last several hours. I have also used it with my iPad in my Jeep Grand Cherokee to navigate! I love it!

Good unit for one device
by Jim from Phoenix AZ USA 

Pros: Easy to charge, sits nicely on glareshield
Cons: Does not support multi-device conncetion, poor advertising on usage.
Review: We bought the GPS to be used in a King Air, hoping that both pilot iPads, and customer devices in the cabin could be connected. In fact, you can only have one device at a time be linked to the GPS. The box states "supports multiple devices". What it means is that many different devices are supported by the GPS, but you can only use one at a time. So if you are in a biz aircraft, with a crew compliment of iPads, and a customer with an iPhone in the back, you have to pick which device will be connected. In our case, one iPad was connected, and everyone else suffered.

Love it
by elp ben from El Paso TX USA 

Pros: small, good battery life
Cons: non other than easily lose able.
Review: I love this with my iPad. While it and iPad only qualify as a class 1 device for "help" its been dead on for VFR, day and night flights. I just started flying again and I feel like I went from Charles Lindbergh tech to Buck Rogers.... Only thing, I'd say and its not really a negative, but its designed to be small and inconspicuous, make it part of your postflight or you'll leave it in the rental...

Dual GPS adequate
by Val from Santaquin Ut USA 

Pros: Consistent tracking everywhere
Cons: Limited information
Review: The GPS does a very good job of tracking location and has a very good battery life. However, I was under the impression when I purchased it that it would also provide some weather updates. I use it with my 3G -wifi IPad 2. My iipad tracks almost as well the GPS does, even when the 3G is turned off. When my 3G is on and am within range of a Cell tower, I get far better information.

Good bang for your buck
by Richard from Houston TX USA 

Pros: Never loses gps signal, easy to pair with apple
Cons: It was difficult to pair with my Samsung galaxy android phone
Review: Works exactly as advertised. Easy to pair and never loses a signal while up in the dashboard. Also haven't had it overheat. If you don't want to shell out the money for stratus then this is a great alternative.

Works like a charm
by Lon from Santa Monica CA USA 

Pros: Works exactly as advertised
Cons: None
Review: I bought the Dual XGPS 150 to use with my iPad version 1 that doesn't have a built-in GPS. I've used the XGPS in my car and while flying a Cessna 172. It worked perfectly in both, right out of the box.

Nice unit for IPad
by Stephen from Las Vegas NV USA 

Pros: small out of site
Cons: Need to charge it before a flight
Review: Unit is small and comes with a soft holder that sits on the glare shield. Works both the Ipad and the iPhone plus 3 other devices so I always have a back up to the back up. Has its own power supply so it does not use the power of the I pad thus saving battery

Best Investment
by Claudia from Chualar CA USA 

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
Review: Works amazingly. I use it with ForeFlight and my Wi-Fi ipad. There is no need to have 3G connections to use in flight. As long as the GPS is near a window, there are no interruptions. I highly recommend this for anyone that is using an ipad in flight.

A very good purchase
by Jim from Eugene OR USA 

Pros: Quick acquisition time
Cons: While it has plenty, I still wish it had more battery time

Nice unit, very sensitive
by Steve from Tucson AZ USA 

Pros: Good signal sensitivity, good bluetooth range.
Cons: Battery % reading on iPad app may be pessimistic.
Review: Excellent unit, receives gps signals well even inside my steel hangar. Size is wonderfully small. I use it with my iPad, using app from Dual to provide interface. Works great with gps receiver in back window of my C-182 and iPad in front seat. The app is helpful, it shows satellites and signal strengths in great detail. It also shows battery life in %. At first the battery life seemed short based on the % reading, but as I ran the battery down it held on longer than I expected based on early battery power readings. Seems like it will be OK for 4-5 hour flights. Sure hope the gov't doesn't take our gps signals away in favor of broadband internet!

good addition to my flight bag
by girlpilot from Saint Louis MO USA 

Pros: WiFi, can be used with any suitable Bluetooth compatible device, small size, cigarette lighter adapter for charging the unit
Cons: Haven't found any yet!
Review: I'm old fashioned - still find my way around the sky with charts, VORs and NDBs. However I did buy a Flight Guide subscription for my iPAD and since I can use it for flight planning as well, I thought a compatible GPS receiver would be useful. I don't have moving map capability, but it's not hard to find the plane on the seamless sectional. I can see that it would be quite useful if i needed to make an unscheduled fuel stop, or find the nearest airport in an emergency. I like the Bluetooth WiFi because the receiver can be placed where it gets the best signal while the iPad can be used by anyone in the aircraft.

AS PROMISED!
by David from Jackson MO USA 

Pros: Easy bluetooth connection. Better reception and faster refresh rate.
Cons: Battery life shorter than the IPAD's
Review: I have a IPAD 1 with the built in GPS which worked poorly in the airplane and not that great in the car. The Dual XGPS150 Bluetooth GPS Receiver has greatly improved reception of GPS signals.

Works as Advertised
by RittSea from Macungie PA USA 

Pros: Bluetooth, Separate battery, Long battery life, Simple to use, Easy to configure.
Cons: None known yet.
Review: There are few products that work right out of the box with very little instruction and work the way they advertise. But the Dual XGPS150 is such a product. It's very easy to set up and use, and does a few simple things very well.

Plus it's Bluetooth, so you can place it wherever you need it to get the best signal. And you don't have to plug it up to your iPad/iPhone and worry about breaking the connector pin or draining your battery.

Love It
by Andrew from Vicksburg MI USA 

Pros: Very Acurate, Never comes unpluged from iPad becasue its wireless.
Cons: have to remove it from antislide pad to plug it into to charge.
Review: I love this GPS, sensitity is great works awsome with my iPad.

My only complant is after 8 hours of use when the battery dies there is no warning on the iPad, at least not in Garmin Pilot My Cast, just stays at last position which is confusing when your traveling 150 knots nearing contralled airspace. Be nice to have some kind of warning other then the red light flash whcih can't be seen at day with it on the dash.

works perfectly
by James from North Andover MA USA 

Pros: High update rate and accuracy, low cost
Cons: Yet one more thing to keep charaged or hook up to a USB adaptor
Review: It was trivial to get this sync'd up with my WiFi-only iPad, and it quickly produces spot-on GPS location. I was a little worried about bluetooth connectivity instead of a hard-wired connection, but I can maintain a connection from more than 10 feet away. Use in the cockpit is easy and reliable.

Review: Gets a satellite lock much faster than my "other brand" GPS device, and Bluetooth link to Apple iPad 2 works reliably more than 20 feet away. I was initially disappointed to see it back-ordered, but I shouldn't have been. MyPilotStore sent it via priority mail when it was back in stock, and it arrived on the same day as the rest of my order. No hassle. Good show!
