Hilton Software has added ADS-B traffic to WingX Pro7. WingX Pro7 will initially support 1090 MHz ADS-B traffic and add 978 MHz ADS-B traffic in May. Additionally, WingX Pro7 Version 6.4’s moving map now highlights obstacles on en route charts and declutters the screen as the user pinch-zooms.
“We introduced ADS-B weather over a year ago at Sun ’n Fun 2011 – scores of pilots flooded our booth watching the infamous Sun ’n Fun tornado heading directly towards us,” said Dr. Hilton Goldstein, CEO. “Many WingX Pro7 users are flying with ADS-B Out equipment or are flying in high-traffic areas in which there are ADS-B-equipped aircraft. We are focused on enhancing flight-safety, most recently we added Synthetic Vision, terrain overlays, and the new Passive RADAR Altimeter. Now we have extended our ADS-B technology lead by using the traffic location information embedded in the ADS-B data stream for accurate traffic depiction. We have also optimized our ADS-B decoder to minimize CPU usage (for longer battery life) and for maximum compatibility with ADS-B receivers we anticipate becoming available later this year.”
WingX Pro7 Version 6.4 is a free update for registered users. WingX Pro7 is available for iPad and iPhone and is available for download from the App Store and iTunes.
