New Stratus Transponder Integrates with Garmin and Avidyne Navigators for 2020 Compliance

Meet the newest addition to the Stratus family of cost-effective, easily-installed certified avionics for general aviation: Stratus ES ADS-B Out transponder ($2,495 Introductory MSRP).

Stratus ES was designed without GPS in order to provide affordable ADS-B Out to aircraft that are already equipped with WAAS GPS. Stratus ES will make an aircraft rule-compliant when paired with any of the following navigators: Garmin 430W, 530W, 6XX, 7XX, or Avidyne IFD440 or IFD540.

With Stratus ESG, we were focused on developing an all-in-one-box solution to minimize installation costs for non-glass panel aircraft that didn’t have WAAS GPS,” said Derek Aslakson, aviation product manager at Appareo. “With Stratus ES, we are responding to demand from aircraft owners who have already equipped with WAAS GPS navigators and are looking for an affordable way to meet the 2020 mandate while utilizing their previous investments.”
