Dual XGPS170 GPS + ADS-B Receiver

In-stock - Free Shipping.

Get the free FAA ADS-B Weather and Traffic Information in the Cockpit with the Dual XGPS170 ADS-B Receiver!

Introduced more than a decade ago by the FAA, ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) provides subscription-free weather and traffic information to all aircraft equipped with an ADS-B receiver, such as the Dual XGPS170.

The portable Dual XGPS170 ADS-B In receiver provides ADS-B weather and traffic broadcasts, to a variety of compatible EFB apps (sold separately), for display on an Apple iPad, Android tablet, or any other Bluetooth-enabled device.

The XGPS170 provides the following ADS-B In services:

  1. The FAA's Traffic Information Service Broadcast (TIS-B), which is traffic information obtained from ATC radar and broadcast from ground radio stations. This information greatly enhances pilots' situational awareness and aids their visual orientation of nearby aircraft traffic.
  2. The XGPS170 can also receive ADS-B position reports directly from a nearby aircraft operating on 978 MHz.
  3. The XGPS170 additionally provides traffic information from some aircraft operating ADS-B Out equipment at 1090 MHz through the ADS-R rebroadcast from ground stations.
  4. The FAA's Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) provides information from the National Weather Service, including NEXRAD radar, as well as winds aloft, pilot reports and other valuable weather services. FIS-B also includes information on temporary flight restrictions (TER) and special use airspace (SUA).

The removable ADS-B antenna allows pilots to connect the receiver directly to an aircraft's external antenna.

Dual XGPS170 ADS-B Receiver Features:

  • ADS-B Weather (FIS-B)
  • ADS-B Traffic (ADS-R/TIS-B) - Use with the included removable antenna or connect to the aircraft's external antenna
  • Bluetooth wireless connectivity:
    - Connects to up to two iPad devices simultaneously
    - Leaves each iPad free to connect to other devices/service via WiFi or Bluetooth
  • Apple and Android support as well as other Bluetooth-enabled (SPP required)
  • Built-in Rechargeable Battery lasts up to 5 hours of continuous use
  • WAAS GPS also works with apps for car & boating navigation and many others
  • 12-30V charger included to charge the receiver or the iPad (can also be charged using the iPad wall charger)
  • Adjustable brightness LEDs for day and night flying
  • Includes a non-slip pad

Broad EFB Apps Support
The XGPS170 does not restrict you to just one EFB app. The XGPS170 will work with a number of EFB apps, including WingX Pro7 from Hilton Software, FlightPro / Avilution for Android devices, Naviator for Android devices, AOPA FlyQ EFB, Bendix King myWingMan EFB, eKneeboard, Pilotbrief Optima, FltPln, iFlyGPS, GRT Avionics EFIS, and more. New app compatibility are being released frequently.

Useful Status Tool App
Similar to the popular XGPS150, the XGPS170 also comes with a useful Status Tool App (available free on the iTunes store). The app is a simple utility application which shows detailed device and reception information.

Highly Accurate GPS
The XGPS170 includes a WAAS GPS receiver with fast location acquisition (under 30 seconds), with position updates up to 10 times per second. The GPS location information is wirelessly transmitted via Bluetooth to Apple and Android devices.

Useful In and Out of the Plane
At your destination, take this small and portable receiver with you to the car, on a boat or hiking. The XGPS170 works with pretty much any app that requires location information, including apps for car and marine navigation, golfing, geocaching, hiking and many others.

Wireless Bluetooth Connectivity
The XGPS170 wirelessly sends GPS and ADS-B data to up to two iPad devices simultaneously, leaving each iPad free to connect to other wireless devices via Bluetooth or WiFi.

Bluetooth Advantage over WiFi
Because the XGPS170 uses Bluetooth, the WiFi connection on your iPad is left free for other uses, such as connecting to the Internet (for weather services, flight plan updates, etc.) or to another accessory like an AHRS. There are no hassles with switching between networks and no service interruptions.

Built-In Rechargeable Battery
The XGPS170 has a built-in rechargeable battery that lasts for up to 5 hours of continuous use. The included 12-30V cigarette lighter adapter charges the receiver (or the iPad) in a car or in an aircraft. The XGPS170 can also be charged using the wall charger that comes with the iPad.

Useful Non-Slip Pad Included
The included non-slip pad holds the receiver securely in place on an aircraft's glareshield, car's dashboard, or boat's console.

Set Up is a Breeze
It takes less than a minute to pair your iPad with the XGPS170, and the receiver will remember your iPad the next time you want to use it.

Universal Design for Many Apps and Devices
The XGPS170 is compatible with all iPad, iPod touch and iPhone devices, as well as other Bluetooth-enabled (SPP required) smart phones, tablets and laptops (Android, Blackberry, Windows and OS X devices). In addition to EFB apps, the XGPS170 works with most apps that require GPS, including apps for car navigation, marine chart plotting, golfing range finders, geocaching, hiking and many others.

What's included? With your Dual XGPS170 you will receive:

  • Dual XGPS170 GPS + ADS-B Receiver
  • Removable ADS-B Antenna
  • 12-30V Cigarette Lighter Adapter
  • Mini USB to USB charging cable

Didn't hook up to my Samsung tablet out of the box
by Berry from Minot ND USA 

Pros: If it does what it says it will be great
Cons: High cost, poor customer service
Review: When I called Dual customer service they offered no service. I finally found out I had to download a "helper app". A Bluetooth app that connected my tablet to dual. Customer service should have been able to help me with that.

Poor Android Support
by David Vancina from KLOT 

Pros: GPS functions are good
Cons: Android support is poor
Review: Dual claims Android support, but that's only partially true. There are features on the device (retrieving track logs, for instance) that can only be accessed via an iOS app, and Dual seems to completely ignore any question regarding Android support. I don't know if it could be considered false advertising, but it's at least a little shady, and it's a lot disappointing.

Dual XGPS170 + ADS-B
by R D from Cypress CA USA 

Pros: Works as promised, easy to set up
Cons: Not sure about traffic yet
Review: I've had this about a month and have used it twice on trips (400 nm) from Southern to Northern CA linked to a Samsung Tab 3 8". Never lost a connection in my Mooney M20F and I had Wx all the way. I'm even able to get Wx on the ground. (I live near KSLI in the middle of the LA Basin.) I'd give it a 5, but I haven't seen any traffic yet, but I haven't played with it to confirm whether or not it is working. The battery has lasted at least four hours at a stretch. It does take a long time to re-charge plugged into a desktop computer (8 hours). It is easy to use.

Good way to get free NEXRAD Weather
by Charlie M. from Alexandria VA USA 

Pros: Very easy to set up and use with my iPad and Wing X Pro
Cons: Tje rubber mount gets dirty immediately from carrying it in my bag and then won't adhere to the windows.
Review: I've been using the Dual for a couple of weeks now. It works just as advertised. I'm very pleased with having NEXRAD weather in flight and with the Traffic Advisory Services (TIS) information. The one thing I find odd, though, is that my own plane's TIS shows up "ahead" of my position. I would have expected it to show up behind me. I have only taken it on short flights, so I can't vouch for its battery life. I also found that it won't charge with any wall charger -- apparently it needs the same type of higher output device as an iPad needs.

Great New Tool for Cockpit Weather
by Leo from Dothan AL USA 

Pros: Works as promised
Cons: None
Review: Product works as promised on WingX. On a recent trip, ADS-B weather was updated ten minutes before XM. While FAA has completed ADS-B installations nationwide, I cannot get reception below 1,500 AGL - you may want to check reception in your area. Overall a great new tool to make flying safer - worth every penny.

Antenna was defective
by Chuck from Darlington WI USA 

Pros: Price, seems to pull in ads-b signal good.
Cons: Antenna it ships with
Review: The unit worked will for about 15 hours, then the ads-b stopped working. Tech support sent out a new antenna and it seems to have fixed the problem. The replacement is a different design than the one it shipped with. The tech support guy commented that we pilots are throwing the units into our flight bags, which I found a little annoying considering it is being advertised as a portable unit. I thought I had handle the unit with appropriate care.

The ADS-B stopped working for me for some reason.
by Alberto from Pasadena CA USA 

Pros: Connects to GRT avionics
Cons: Stop sending ADS-B data
Review: Unit worked for one flight and displayed weather data and traffic fine on my GRT avionics display. But then stopped sending the data on subsequent flights. Will not send weather data to iPad app either and just hangs waiting for data. Not sure how to get it fixed.

by HAK from California 

Pros: A nice unit does not overheat works greaton WingX Pro7
Cons: Slower than other systems NOT MADE FOR FOREFLIGHT!
Review: This unit does not work with FOREFLIGHT!  Don't buy it if you plan to use it on foreflight!

It does however work pretty well with WINGX PRO7. WINGX PRO7 is the way to go with the unit.

A bit slower than Stratus but still for the money not a bad unit.

If you want a unit and use foreflight listen up! Get the Stratus 2! Tried and tested, the best system on the market. Make sure you get the extended antenna for the GPS AND the ADS-B !!! You will thank me later!

Never got it to work. Never got a response from Dual
by Ray Larocque from Ocala, FL 

Pros: GPS worked great
Cons: Traffic and wether didn't work at all and I was in Fla where ADSB has good coverage
Review: The only thing I liked about this unit was the accuracy it gave my IPAD. Nothing else worked and I couldn't get a response from the Dual folks, email or phone. So I returned it to My Pilots Store and got their cheaper version that only does GPS (Dual XGPS150).

by Carter Boswell from Sahuarita AZ 

Pros: GPS, Bluetooth, work well
Cons: No ADS-B functions provided via Bluetooth to my Ipad
Review: I use the Dual XGPS170 paired with a Mini Ipad that's supporting a Flight Guide iEFB.
Generally works as advertised. The small airplane ICON travels across the screen while enroute, so the GPS function works fine.

My issue is with the ADS-B features that the Dual is supposed to provide. I don't have any. No Weather or Traffic airborne or on the ground. The light for the ADS-B feature on the Xgps170 doesn't even light up! So it looks like a Dual hardware problem and I can't find a solution.

I would appreciate a response from Dual to my review of their product, added to the end of this review.

Success with Naviator android app
by Philip from NC 

Pros: Good ADS-B coverage enroute; no trouble setting up
Cons: Little to no coverage on the ground; would be nice if status lights dimmed at night

Had first chance to use this on a trip lately (from NC to upstate NY). Didn't pick up ADS-B anywhere I was on the ground, but quickly started receiving stations once about 500 to 1000 agl. Pretty continuous coverage while airborne, except mysteriously lost ADS-B enroute over middle of Virginia southbound for about 20 minutes.

Currently I'm using it with the Naviator app on android - so far that app only supports weather, not traffic. (But that's what I really wanted it for anyway - to see metars and radar while enroute.) For that purpose I'm very pleased. And Naviator's subscription rates are much more reasonable than the other two "big name" apps.

Only "negative" about this particular ADS-B receiver I noticed as that the status lights are awfully bright when flying at night. I had the unit up on the glareshield, and finally fashioned a couple of pieces of paper to (mostly) cover up the status lights as it got dark outside.

Be Careful
by A Customer from Seattle, WA 

Review: Used it with the iPad. Beware, it won't give any information other than position on the foreflight, ther reason I bought it in the first place. Not supported in all apps. Also, on the iPad, it cuts in and out at times, at least on foreflight. Feel like I spent $799 for very little advantage, if any.

Previous Customer Questions For Dual XGPS170 GPS + ADS-B Receiver:
Ask Your Own Question
On Wednesday, January 16, 2013 a customer asked:
A: The ADS-B antenna is very accurate and is recommend that the unit be placed so that it has a clear view of the sky. Any hindered or obscure view will diminish its signal and accuracy. An external antenna can also be used with the XGPS170. A dedicated, passive 978 MHz transponder antenna mounted on the bottom of the aircraft is an ideal external antenna option. You can view the XGPS 170 user’s manual here.

On Saturday, October 20, 2012 a customer asked:
Does this unit include GPS sentence $GPRMB in addition to $GPGLL, -GSA, -GSV, -RMC, -VTG and $GPGGA?
A: The Dual XGPS170 GPS + ADS-B Receiver will not produce $GPRMB sentence but it will produce the others.
