Droid weather not updating

Have even flown several practice approaches stricly using the Stratus GPS data and it will put you right over the runway. Not rock solid, but good enough to save your bacon in a no gyro situation.

Stratus has the capability to provide all the info you listed, but you will also need a subscription to Foreflight as well.

The pack must supply 2.4 amps to charge the Stratus unit.

You can use an external battery pack to extend the battery life.

You just need to make sure you have the right cable on board to connect your battery pack to the unit.

Appareo Stratus and Foreflight are essentially made for each other and only each other....it's a shame that they don't open source it for better flexibility for ADS-B transceiver/Receiver options like other EFB and/or ADS-B manufacturers do....there is another EFB company that states on their website that their product will work with Stratus, but I believe that it is only with certain models of Stratus, and that there are glitches that interfere with smooth operation. Purchase your i Pad with the maximum recommended memory. At times it seemed real time but this was due to the nature of the pop up thunderstorms which "popped up" as the term implies, but then just stayed in one place as opposed to moving rapidly as they do in the northeast.

I've never noticed any lag time as far as GPS position goes. Good luck...pedro Brett, the Stratus 2S receiver is excellent for VFR use and it is extremely accurate and fast. Weather is updated only every few minutes but is close to real time. Our radar as not working nd the trip was great using the stratus weather info.

Also, the backup AHRS system and synthetic vision is excellent and extremely responsive. I've never noticed any lag time as far as GPS position goes. That said, it was a great tool to have to help decide when it was time to get on the ground as every afternoon it definitely got tricky. I find that while I am in the airplane, and I look outside at the weather, it's pretty accurate.

Great combination, I use the i Pad for mainly glass panel nav and the i Phone for airport info and weather info. It has a USB charging cord so with a suitable cigarette lighter adapter, it should charge.

i Phone info slightly less limited than the i Pad, but still works like a charm. I usually run my mini i Pad along with my i Phone on the yoke mount. It has a USB charging cord so with a suitable cigarette lighter adapter, it should charge. My aircraft is 24 volt and I use dual amperage (10 amp/ 21 amp adapter) to charge my I pad if necessary and works well. The dual 2.1 amp cigarette lighter plug we sell ( works just fine.

I found the adapter at Amazon for a couple of dollars but I believe Sportys would have something comporable. It accepts 12 or 24 volts from the cigarette lighter, and both USB ports are 2.1 amps - you can charge an i Pad and a Stratus at the same time.
