Maintaining GPS connectivity using my iPad ForeFlite program is necessary on crosscountry flights. This apparatus suits those needs very well.
This device is a replacement to my original dual xps 150A how receiver because it would not hold a charge any more. It worked with my IPhone in the past. Now my iPhone 10 says it does not support this device. Have not been able to make it work at all with my phone. Complete waste of money. I search to see if there is some sort of fix. But nothing works. I had used it with my downloaded maps and for my speedometer app as well. No such luck to get my apps to work with this gps device. Very disappointed.
I received an ipad for x-mas and installed my IFLY (Adventure Pilot App.) to it. When using the app kept seeing a weak gps signal on the screen. When speaking to another pilot friend, he suggested installinga garmin app ($85 yr fee), and use his garmin antenna. I recall seeing the Dual XGPS150A, when I googled aviation gps units. The price was RIGHT, no fees, and had blue tooth. It sounded like this was the ticketI was looking for. I purchased the unit from pilot mall, and received it in several days. It works great, and will use it for TICO and Sun n Fun, and most likely, all the time.
