NavWorx has added Wi-Fi support to its line of ADS-B receivers and Universal Access Transceiver (UAT). The company’s WxBox is a portable unit designed to receive free broadcast weather from a nationwide network of ADS-B stations. Wi-Fi enables NavWorx ADS-B devices to exchange data wirelessly with a variety of portable and panel-mounted display devices, including Garmin, iPad, and other popular devices, company officials said.
Support for Wi-Fi was also added to the top-of-the-line NavWorx ADS600-B UAT. The ADS600-B delivers ADS-B/TIS-B traffic and FIS-B weather and flight information to a variety of aircraft electronic displays. It is designed to meet FAA TSO-C154c and is FCC Approved, company officials said. ADS-B/TIS-B traffic and FIS-B weather and flight information are provided subscription-free as part of the nationwide ADS-B aircraft tracking network.
ADS-B brings pilots enhanced situational awareness and improved air traffic safety, company officials said, noting the ADS600-B and WxBox are designed to capture and display this freely broadcast information directly in the cockpit. The ADS600-B and WxBox can be installed on both experimental and certified aircraft when it meets the FAA’s “portable installation guidelines.”
