ForeFlight’s Scout ADS-B receiver is the type of in­no­va­tive and af­ford­able prod­uct we’re de­lighted to see em­braced by the gen­eral avi­a­tion mar­ket. Scout takes sim­plic­ity in de­sign to lev­els un­heard of in avi­a­tion by com­bin­ing a com­pact unit that’s about the size of a USB thumb drive with the ease of use of the best in new con­sumer elec­tron­ics. Sim­ply open up the box, con­nect Scout to a power source and pair it with your iPad. The unit then au­to­mat­i­cally pro­vides sub­scrip­tion-free ADS-B weather and traf­fic in­for­ma­tion in flight in­te­grated with the ForeFlight Mo­bile app. A handy suc­tion cup al­lows you to stick Scout to a win­dow and for­get about it. The ex­cep­tional weather re­sources in­te­grated within ForeFlight Mo­bile, such as ic­ing and tur­bu­lence pre­dic­tion tools, work flaw­lessly with Scout, and the Nexrad weather over­lays we’ve seen seem ev­ery bit as good as those of­fered by sub­scrip­tion ser­vices. Best of all, the Scout unit, pro­duced for ForeFlight by uAvionix, is priced at only $200, mak­ing it af­ford­able to any­one.
