 [Avionics Today 04-10-2015] FreeFlight Systems has released a new version of its iPad app to provide graphical weather, traffic and text data to the pilot and crew. The Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) View 2.0 app receives weather and traffic information through the company’s Rangr ADS-B system, which is transmitted to the tablet via Wi-Fi and overlayed on the ADS-B view map.

The new app offers the ability for user selection of an ownship position source, a new graphics engine and additional connectivity support. The graphical weather can be placed into a looping mode so that weather changes can be viewed over time. The map can be configured to show runways, roads, lakes and state and county lines.
