This app borrows underlying features from Avare and adds the capacity to manage a software-defined radio for ADS-B "in". By-in-large, it is "Avare with weather and traffic". That being said, it is not the latest Avare or to be more clear "there are features in Avare that are not in Xradio". If you are a VFR pilot and simply wish to get METARS, winds aloft, PIREPS, etc, this is not an issue. If you are an IFR pilot and want to see yourself on "geo-referenced approach plates", you will be better off with "real Avare" and some other app to run the radio. The Xradio software will not show your position on the approach plates. There is also a some difference in making a flight plan too. In "regular Avare", you can "long press" on an airport and chose "direct" or "add to plan". Xradio's version does not allow the "add to plan". I am in IFR training right now and want to see my position on the approach plates. For that reason, I will probably NOT RUN XRADIO during training but rather run Avare directly (and pursue another radio management app). All that being said, the hardware purchased through Xradio is quite good. Best regards, Todd L
Worked right off the bat
Neat! Planes! 100 miles away! Using generic rtl-sdr stick with otg. I know, I'm a nerd, but I like seeing all the strange things I can do with a $10 piece of hardware.
Works well on a Doogee 310. Unfortunately, I see less than half the aircraft that the same USB dongle detects when connected to my PC. Not sure how this is possible...
