Sporty’s, along with partners Appareo Systems and ForeFlight, today introduced the next-generation of Stratus ADS-B receivers offering improved performance, better signal reception and much, much more.
Like their predecessors, the new Stratus 1S and Stratus 2S models offer integration with the ForeFlight Mobile app for subscription-free weather, ADS-B traffic, WAAS GPS position and all-day battery life. Additional features include a built-in attitude and heading reference system and dual-band traffic receiver in the 2S version and the ability to hide the device’s Wi-Fi network and add a password. The units will also be able to connect to Appareo’s certified ADS-B Out avionics with an interface cable.
“Pilots love Stratus because it simply works the right way, so our focus has always been on improving performance while maintaining a pilot-friendly design,” said Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman.
Stratus can also display ADS-B weather data on the Apple Watch. And a new pressure altitude sensor in the 2S model allows pilots to view pressure altitude in ForeFlight, as well as enables the app’s Cabin Pressure Advisor.
Stratus 2S is priced at $899 and the 1S at $549. Both begin shipping next week, and will be on display at the Sporty’s tent at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.
