AeroADSB

Shows aircraft traffic from your ADS-B receiver (supporting GDL 90)

Requires iOS 13.0 or higher. Available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.


Receives and displays aircraft traffic data on map from ADS-B receivers (e.g., Stratux) which support GDL 90 protocol out).
Expects GDL 90 data to be sent to port 4000 via UDP (which is usually standard; but can be changed in the app). Works entirely independent from internet connection (except for Apple map data; simple built-in map can be used instead) and with ADS-B receiver only.


The map display can be customized in different ways:

  • Use top corner buttons to:
    • configure aircraft data (altitude, callsign, climb rate, or speed)
    • show distance rings (10, 20, 40 NM)
    • change map type (Apple map or simple built-in offline map)
    • tap on location button to toggle between tracking and none-tracking
  • Tap on bottom right legend plate to toggle between speed and altitude
  • Display of surrounding airports

The top center view shows own aircraft’s speed, track, and altitude. It also show number of satellites seen and used for tracking.

Unlock Weather Data
