Should have posted this earlier, a few months ago I installed ADS-B in and out in my 650. Got the UAT and Wifi setup from SkyVision. Connects to my ipad. At a glance its easy to see if a plane is above or below you, and which way it's going. 3-D view. Harry the tec at SkyVision is the most helpful and quick reply with help and answers. So far a few planes are using ADS-B. But more and more. Love it.

Sure James, I am not at my plane right now so can't give the model#s of UAT. If you look at the Skyvision Xtreme web site I guess it would be the. Gen2 portable ADS-b in&out Although I installed it all permanantly. So they gave me a UAT made by navworx and XV appliance, which is a wifi transmitter, it has an SD card installed, it is the brain for the Skyvision setup. I can't tell you what the appliance name or numbers are as the bottom is covered with Velcro fastener. It transmits to the iPad, any iPad will work. They offer a 7in tablet or you can use iPad, if using an iPad you have to use an app, "jump desktop" go to the Skyvision extreme website, documentation/Skyvision Xtreme 70 pages of helpful info on how it all works. Beginning Page 48 how to sync iPAd setup. A one time thing. They also provided antenna (looks just like transponder antenna) I provided a Garmin GA 35 GPS/WASS antenna $295 from gulf coast avionics. I didn't get the plastic case or the 7in tablet because I was mounting permanently. Tomorrow I will try to post exactly the model of UAT.

Marvin,

Could you provide more info of what you actually have ? I have ADS-B "in" using Garmin GDL-39 and Garmin Pilot app on my iPad, but I'm just getting to the point of looking at options to get the ADS-B out. I had started looking at the ADS600-EXP for iPad apps, but Garmin Pilot wasn't listed as one of the app's. Could you list the equipment you have including manuf/model numbers, and what iPad app you are using ? For your ADS-B system, could you also tell me what optional accessories you got ?How was SkyVision involved in all this ?

Thanks,

            Jim
