Permanently-Mounted Unit For The Experimental And Light Sport Market
Dynon Avionics is now shipping the SV-ADSB-470 UAT Band Traffic and Weather Receiver for the SkyView system. This remotely mounted receiver module integrates with the SkyView system to provide easy access to weather and traffic information on top of the detailed navigational information SkyView already provides.
At an MSRP of $995, the SV-ADSB-470 is an affordable, permanently-mounted ADS-B “In” solution which has been designed specifically for experimental and light sport aircraft. It is powered directly from aircraft power and utilizes an externally mounted antenna (not included) for superior performance.
All information displayed is free with no monthly subscriptions, based on the FAA’s ADS-B broadcast in the USA. Weather is displayed graphically and textually on SkyView, and includes NEXRAD radar, METARs, and TAFS. Airport weather data can be chosen based on nearest or by airport identifier.
Additionally, when paired with an ADS-B “Out” capable SV-XPNDR-26X Mode-S Transponder, the SV-ADSB-470 receives a full traffic portrait from the FAA ADS-B system. This portrait is tailor-made for the SkyView-equipped aircraft and includes all ADS-B and radar targets that the FAA can detect. In contrast, other portable/receive-only ADS-B solutions only receive “partial” traffic when another ADS-B “Out” equipped aircraft happens to be nearby, drastically reducing their traffic-sensing capabilities.
The SV-ADSB-470 is only suitable for use in the US with the FAA's ADS-B system, as it receives data via the US-only 978 MHz UAT frequency. It will not receive traffic, weather, or TFRs in other countries.
