Dynon Ships New ADS-B “In” Weather and Traffic Receiver for SkyView

Dynon Avionics is shipping the SV-ADSB-470 UAT Band Traffic and Weather Receiver for its SkyView EFISes. It is a permanently mounted ADS-B “In” solution.

The remotely mounted receiver module integrates with the SkyView system to provide access to weather and traffic information on top of the navigational information SkyView already provides. It is powered directly from aircraft power and uses an externally mounted antenna (not included) for improved performance.

All information displayed is free with no monthly subscriptions, based on the FAA’s ADS-B broadcast in the U.S. 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.

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 including all ADS-B and radar targets the FAA can detect.

The SV-ADSB-470 is suitable for use only in the U.S., as it receives data via the U.S.-only 978 MHz UAT frequency. It will not receive traffic, weather or TFRs in other countries. The price is $995.

For more information on the SV-ADSB-470, call 425/402-0433, or visit www.DynonAvionics.com.
