The system bundle will come with a factory supplied "pig tail" harness/connector that will require no additional wiring making replacement system "plug and play" for those with an existing ADS600-EXP. (Those with experimental aircraft with the ADS-600B system are also included in this special but will require connector replacement). With all the capabilities of your existing system, the EchoUAT also provides Dual (978 & 1090) traffic as a dual frequency receiver.

NavWorx - an ADS-B In and Out supplier that has provided units to many homebuilders and has marketed to the certified world - announced on their web site that they have ceased operations due to problems with the performance of their GPS data source. The FAA notified NavWorx of the non-compliant GPS module earlier this year, and NavWorx customers have been waiting for a final AD that would tel them how to make their units 2020 compliant ever since. Unfortunately, it appears that the company will not be able to supply such a solution, and has closed their doors. Continue reading "NavWorx Ceases Operations"
NavWorx, Inc. has entered a licensing agreement with Garmin enabling connectivity to the company's GNS and GTN line of navigators. Under the agreement, NavWorx' ADS600-B will interface with existing certified position sources providing the required WAAS GPS to meet the FAA’s mandate for ADS-B equipage.

NavWorx, Inc. announced an affordable solution for Experimental and LSA aircraft owners with the release of its ADS600-EXP. This announcement came on the heels of the FAA's ADS-B rule change in February. The FAA concluded that devices must meet the "performance requirements" of TSO-C154c.
NavWorx ADS600-EXP is a complete ADS-B solution for experimental and LSA aircraft. The ADS600-EXP communicates with a wide variety of display systems via Wi-Fi and RS232. For a limited time, NavWorx is offering the ADS600-EXP at the industry's lowest price of $869.
Design of the NavWorx ADS600-EXP is based on the company's ADS600-B, a FAA TSO/STC certified unit. Both comply with the ADS-B mandates of TSO-C154c and TSO-C145c. The ADS600-EXP is a Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) and provides full ADS-B In and Out operations. Unlike 1090ES solutions, the ADS600-EXP offers all the benefits of an UAT solution. These include free broadcast weather and flight information services.
All ADS600 UAT devices come with NavWorx' patent-pending TransMonSPETM. This device easily installs on the aircraft's existing transponder coax cable to provide for single point of entry of the squawk code, ident, and Mode A/C. TransMonSPETM also provides pressure encoder data to the ADS600-series. It meets the FAA's requirement to have a Single Point of Entry for the squawk code, and satisfies the FAR that requires both the transponder and ADS-B to use the same pressure encoder. TransMonSPETM is TSO certified and will interface with older transponders eliminating any need to replace the transponder or altitude encoder.
NavWorx ADS-B solutions are also available for certified aircraft offering an affordable solution for operators with a variety of installation requirements. The company also offers pre-built harnesses and coax cables, available on its website store.

The SkyVision Portable has a UAT transceiver and an Xtreme Vision Appliance, which transmits the Xtreme Vision display software to any Wi-Fi-capable iOS, Android, or Windows display in the cockpit. The complete system requires only three wires to be run during use, including two antennas and power to a 12/24-volt cigarette-lighter plug. All wires, antennas and equipment are stored in the case for transport.
SkyVision Portable utilizes the NavWorx ADS600-B, a Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) that meets the FAA’s 2020 ADS-B mandate for ADS-B In/Out. The ADS600-B offers pilots the opportunity to later permanently install the unit.
The package includes a suction-cup-mounted UAT antenna, a GPS antenna and a power plug. The system is bundled in a pre-wired briefcase-type enclosure, which measures 15x10x4 inches and weighs about 7 pounds with all cables, antennas and electronics. The price is $3295.

Wi-Fi capability was also added to the NavWorx ADS600-B UAT. The ADS600-B delivers ADS-B/TIS-B traffic and FIS-B weather and flight information to a variety of aircraft electronic displays. It is designed to meet FAA TSO-C154c and is FCC approved. The traffic, weather and flight information is provided subscription-free as part of the nationwide ADS-B aircraft tracking network.
Both the ADS600-B and WxBox capture and display this freely broadcast information directly in the cockpit. The ADS600-B and WxBox can be installed in both Experimental and certified aircraft, when the FAA’s “portable installation guidelines” are met, the company says.
