About this app

The leading ADSB Receiver for Android!!

** Please note:
-YOU NEED ADDITIONAL HARDWARE TO USE THIS APP.
-Disable battery optimization if run in background.

This app enables your device to receive live ADSB data (978 MHz UAT and 1090 MHz ES). All you need is a supported USB dongle and an OTG cable, both available from various sources on the internet for less than $20.-. No subscription required!

Follow this link for more details: http://hiz.ch/index.php/home/adsb-receiver

Use this app to provide live ADSB data to Avare! All data received (traffic, Nexrad weather and standard reports like METAR, TAF, PIREP, WINDS, ...) will be made available automatically, once Avare has been detected. (Make sure to enable "Use ADSB Weather" in Avare.) Download Avare here, it's free: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ds.avare

You can also forward the data to most GDL90 compatible apps like iFlyGPS, FltPlanGo, DroidEFB, ...

This test version is fully functional but comes with a package limit. The app will continue to work after reaching the limit, but please consider buying the "Pro" version to support the development of this app. Thanks!! (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=bs.Avare.ADSB.Pro)

USAGE
Attach a supported USB dongle to your Android device by using an OnTheGo (OTG) cable/adapter. Make sure your device supports OTG! Start the app and allow access to the dongle. You should see packages flowing in quickly, depending on your location.

HARDWARE
Supported tuners: Rafael Micro R820T and R820T2.

Only worked on 1090 with an NESDR nano 2+, but works on both frequencies (one at a time) with a NESDR nano 3. Using a ONEPLUS 7T (USB 3.1 port) and an iTeknik USB-C hub from Amazon. Got a response from the developer when I wanted to troubleshoot the 2+, so happy about that. Might go pro here after some more testing. Does not seem to work with fltplan go on the NB same device, however.

runnig an rtl-sdr dongle, app opens but tells me "not connected" and re checks the connetion to no avail. EDIT...working fine , should have known a long wire would be no good. Switched to a small teloscopic antenna and left it retracted (just about 5") now im seeing all kinds of flights. Thanks for the super fast reply. Bought the pro version.

I am using this app with my Nexus 7 and Nooelec NESDR Nano 3 and things are working well (thanks!) I would like to post a question here if I may? Wondering if other Nexus 7 users were able to charge their units while operating this way? I'm plugged in to USB power but not charging. .

Hi and thanks for your review! Being able to charge while using the app depends on the hardware used. We did not come across a solution for the Nexus 7 yet, but you can use a powered OTG adapter to provide power to the dongle.

What's new

-Removed need for Android Overlay permission!

-Added traffic monitoring option.

-Fixed a rare bug with GDL90 ownship messages.
