The echoUAT is a Class B1S ADS-B UAT transmitter coupled with a dual-link 1090MHZ / UAT receiver. An integrated Wi-Fi system transmits traffic and weather to popular Electronic Flight-Bag (EFB) applications on iOS and Android, including ForeFlight Mobile. Direct interface support for common EFIS systems such as Dynon SkyView, GRT and MGL. A zero-install, internal wireless monitor decodes replies from legacy Mode C transponders for maximum retro-fit capability. Extensive position source compatibility, including the uAvionix SKYFYX GPS.
The echoUAT meets the performance requirements of 14 CFR 91.227.
SkyFYX combines a high precision WAAS GNSS sensor with an integrated RAIM processor. Resilient against jamming, spoofing and GPS range errorsSkyFYX provides reliable navigation in challenging environments. SkyFYX is the most affordable ADS-B rule-compliant position source companion for the echoUAT ADS-B transceiver.
The SkyFYX meets the performance requirements of 14 CFR 91.227. For use in Experimental and LSA aircraft.
Included with the echoUAT+SkyFYX-EXT bundle:
Super easy install. Worked perfectly first time except Baro Press failed 7% of the time. Changed the Transponder Threshold from 1350 to 1200 and the next PAPR was perfect, no failures. ADS-B IN works great with Foreflight. This was a perfect solution for my Experimental Airplane.
Great value for a LSA
The unit was the cheapest I could find and it works. I have not flown with it yet but it is programed and ready to go. I needed help with programing as it wouldnt accept the ICAO code and had to do a work around with the Ipad and then it went right in. Their support people were great!! It is installed in my Glasair 1, and is located in the fuselage as it is all glass. Delivery was overnight from CA to NV
Received unit quicker than promised. Installed quickly after running power and ground wires. Only one other wire to connect when using legacy transponder. Also used an L2 transmitter antenna to avoid another making a second ground plane or hole in my composite fuselage. Passed ADS-B flight test on first attempt. Nice unit!
The Skyfyx all-in-one receiver was easy to install and worked as advertised. I used it along with the Echo UAT ADSB transceiver and it doesnât get any easier.
I have not installed the product yet, but the service from Aircraft Spruce was 5 Stars! I ordered it via telephone, and it arrived the next day!
Amazing little box. Wish it was approved for certificated aircraft, would have bought 2!
Easy o install great product support from the manufacturer. Easy to program and monitor from a smart phone!
Simple to install, customer tech support was great. Worked out of the box.
Easy installation. We have an early build RV-12 with a Garmin 327 transponder. I mounted it out of the way behind the panel, and ran coax to a TED UAT antenna. The first couple of PAPR reports I requested looked goo other than a lot of BARO ALT failures, so I contacted uAvionix support via email. They responded quickly and told me how to change the sensitivity setting in the setup app. It took a couple of flights to get it set right, but since then its been rock solid with no issues. Really enjoy having all the ADS-B supplied data available in the cockpit now... makes it so much easier and quicker to get the WX as were approaching a destination. If you own an Experimental, I highly recommend this for you. If you dont... well, I guess youre going to be spending a lot more!
This unit is intended for installation into experimental / light sport aircraft. It is not TSO'd for installation into a certificated aircraft and there are currently no plans for certification of this unit.
No, the Garmin 696 can only receive ADS-B data from other Garmin units. For TIS-A Traffic, it can receive data from a Garmin Mode S Transponder (GTX 330) and for TIS-B traffic and FIS-B Flight Information data , it can receive from a GDL 39.
This bundle allows you to keep your mode C transponder and output ADS-B. The Skyfx is a GPS receiver and antenna built in so you can use this if you do not have a GPS display.
Per the manufacturer, yes it will.
Yes. The echoUAT will communicate with Mode C transponders, so your STX 165 will work.
This unit uses the MODE C or MODE S signal to output ADS-B data. The antenna will cover you for WAAS GPS signal.
Per Uavionix the ECHOUAT comes with a 9ft harness.
Per the manufacturer, if you are trying to place the antenna inside the poly fiber fabric it will continue to work.
This is for experimental only, and cannot be used on certified aircraft.
No. Since this unit is not TSO approved, it does not qualify for the FAA rebate for ADS-B. Only certified installations qualify for the rebate.
