Sentry Plus Delivers an Update to Portable ADS-B Solutions

The unit leverages ForeFlight capabilities such as CO monitoring and track logging.

ForeFlight has introduced the latest update to its Sentry series of portable ADS-B units, the Sentry Plus, joining the original Sentry and Sentry Mini for use on a wide range of aircraft when linked to an iPad.

The lightweight plastic-case Sentry Plus builds on previous models, allowing for subscription-free ADS-B traffic and weather information, and adding a list of features to include carbon monoxide (CO) monitoring and track logging.

Battery life has also seen a boost, to 18 hours, according to the company. The high-contrast OLED screen shows five in-flight metrics for G-load, CO status, speed, GPS accuracy, and battery level. 

Retail price is set at $799, and it’s available through outlets such as Sporty’s, with an expected in-stock date of June 21.

The total list of features includes:

  • Dual-band ADS-B traffic
  • CO monitor and alerts
  • FIS-B weather (in supported regions)
  • Automatic on-device track logging and importing
  • 18-Hour battery life
  • Live and recorded G-load metrics
