The First App To Support The XGPS170 Is WingX Pro7 From Hilton Software
Dual Electronics' new XGPS170 GPS + ADS-B Weather & Traffic Receiver for iPad, iPhone and Android devices is now shipping to authorized resellers in the U.S.
Designed to work with 3rd party EFB apps, the in-flight weather and traffic information from the XGPS170 is seamlessly integrated into WingX Pro7 from Hilton Software. Additional compatible apps for Apple, Android and Windows devices will soon be available from a number of software companies including: Avilution, Flight Guide, Fltplan.com, Global NavSource, Jeppesen, and Naviator.
“The XGPS170 is an ideal upgrade from the popular XGPS150 for those wanting weather and traffic in the cockpit,” said Greg Lukins, Vice President, Business Development, Dual Electronics. “The advanced display capabilities of WingX Pro7 combined with the reliable performance of the XGPS170 deliver all the benefits of the ADS-B broadcast in an easy-to-use solution,” added Lukins.
The XGPS170 features the same high-accuracy WAAS GPS as the XGPS150/150A, plus an ADS-B receiver for weather and traffic data. The receiver connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to two tablets simultaneously, leaving both tablets free to connect to other WiFi devices. The built-in rechargeable battery lasts up to 5 hours of continuous use, and a 12-28V charger is included. The XGPS170 comes with a convenient non-slip pad that holds the receiver in place on horizontal as well as vertical surfaces.
Current owners of the Dual GPS receivers can now take advantage of the recently announced $50 trade-in program by sending their XGPS150/XGPS150A products along with a proof of purchase of a new XGPS170 to Dual Electronics. The program is valid on purchases of the XGPS170 made on or before March 31, 2013.The receiver will carry a suggested retail price of $799.
