|Pilots can enjoy a no-compromise ADS-B In experience on the iPad by connecting a Stratus portable receiver through this interface kit. This connection provides continuous power to Stratus portables as well as access to the ADS-B and GPS antennas mounted in optimal locations outside of the aircraft. Thus, it eliminates the need to mount Stratus portable receivers in direct line of sight of ADS-B ground stations and GPS satellites.|
Bought several of these for install, as well as the 3i Kit. Love the product, and I have yet to have any problems with missing or defective parts. Great solution for low cost ADS-B in/out when paired with the ESG Transponder.
After reading the review complaining about a lack of cables I ignored it, thinking it must be a one-off - bad assumption. I too received a kit absent any cables. The Appareo guys initially said theyd never heard of such a thing, one assumes they thought I was trying to rip them off, but they have now shipped the cables. I fear this may still go wrong, Aircraft Spruce simply sent a form response with platitudes, though they did engage with the supplier, so I guess that probably persuaded someone. In hindsight I should have simply sent the partial kit back and asked them to supply a properly kitted set. Ill update this review if everything works out.
We received the kit with missing and defective parts. Aircraft Spruce referred us to Appareo. First they sent the missing parts, and when installed, we found that one of the original parts included in the kit was defective and we had to again go through Appareo to get the replacement part. It cost us additional installation expenses as well as additional down time for the aircraft.

The cables are 5' long.
No, it only allows the Stratus 2S & the Stratus 1S to be remote mounted.
Please see part #'s 11-15996 and 11-14672 for the respective compatible antennas.
Yes, this can be used in certified aircraft.
Yes, you will need the interface kit.
The 3 is the newest one. There is no S version of the 3 at this time. Part # 11-16213 will only work with the Stratus 2. Part # 11-14673 is made for 1s,2s, and 3
No, this is only for the stratus portable units in order to interface them to their respective transponder.
These come together as a kit from Appareo and cannot be separated. However we can look into special ordering this from the manufacturer.
