The XGPS150 is very simple to use. There is a quick set up process that includes pairing your device with the Receiver. Once this is done, the Receiver will automatically connect to the device it was last paired with, and you will be able to use it with hundreds of apps that require location information.
The XGPS150 also comes with a useful GPS Status Tool App (available free on the iTunes store, not required for the device to work). The App is a simple utility application for use with the XGPS150. It shows detailed information from the XGPS150 including:
Note: The Dual XGPS models 150, 160 and 170 are currently experiencing compatibility issues with Apple software update IOS 8.3. According to Dual, the XGPS does still work with some iOS EFB apps, including WingX and iFlyGPS. However, Foreflight and FlyQ are not currently compatible. If you are currently using one of these devices, we recommend waiting for iOS 8.4 before updating your device. If you plan on purchasing the XGPS and you are using IOS 8.3, we recommend waiting until IOS 8.4 is released.
I deleted dual and re installed it. Working great again!! Happy with this product again.
Works as advertised. Linked to my I-pad mini and use in my airplane.
Running ForeFlight on my IPad mini3 from wifi connection to my IPhone had tracking and location problems in flight. This product solved it and works very well. Battery only last about 4.5hrs and needs to be removed from its case to be charged, this system could be cleaned up and I would give it 5 stars
When working it’s great. Slow to catch up with iOS 11.03 Been waiting a while now. Not recommending this product even though it works well with foreflight, been waiting a long time to catch up to Apple
