The portable 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 iPad or Android tablet.

What is the charging input current for the Dual XGPS170 GPS + ADS-B?
The Dual XGPS170 voltage:
Input: 12 – 30 VDC
Output: 5 VDC Does Dual XGPS170 work with ForeFlight?
No, the XGPS 170 currently works with WingX for Apple devices, Avilution for Android devices and Naviator for Android devices. More are in the works but ForeFlight does not look to be one them. What is the max POWER consumtion of the unit. Can it be used in Europe? (EU:1090MHz)
The input is 12–30 VDC with an output of 5 VDC, 2.1A. This product is intended for USA use at this time.
ForeFlight works with the Dual XGPS150. Do you know why the 170 won't work with ForeFlight?
Because ForeFlight uses the Stratus for ADS-B information and at this time is the only option. ForeFlight can use many different GPS only receivers with the app but only the Stratus for ADS-B. Does it work with iFly 720 GPS ?
iFly is doing testing with this now but a connection is not available at this time. Does Dual XGPS170 work with FLTPLAN or FLTPLAN GO apps?
Per Dual, Yes, FLTPLAN or FLTPLAN GO is on the supported apps list. The video shows a switch for OFF, GPS and ADSB. Is it one or the other between GPS and ADS-B?
When the switch is on ADS-B, the GPS and ADS-B are enabled. When the switch is on GPS, this keeps the GPS on but disables ADS-B. Does the ADS-B work with Jeppesen's JEPPFD app?
Dual XGPS 170 (11-11155) does not list Jeppfd on their list of approved apps as of 3/2015
