Certified Transponder + Portable Receiver
While any ADS-B receiver will work well once you’re ADS-B Out equipped, Stratus receivers are unique in that you can plug them into the transponder to utilize aircraft power and benefit from the enhanced reception captured by the external antenna signals.
Transponders can be ordered in kits that include Stratus 2i, an ADS-B In receiver that was designed to stay plugged into the transponder (tucked behind the panel).
If you fly with Stratus 2S, Stratus 1S, or Stratus 2, there’s an interface kit available to connect your receiver to the transponder.
Why we chose not to put an ADS-B receiver in the transponder:
By using portable receivers for ADS-B In, you can easily replace that equipment as technology advances, without incurring costly work in your panel.
Many pilots already own an ADS-B receiver – make the most of your investment!
Which receiver is right for you?
Already have a Stratus receiver?
Connect your Stratus with the optional interface kit for maximum reception. Your portable Stratus receives not only auxiliary power, but also its ADS-B and GPS signal from the transponder’s externally-mounted antennas.
