I bought this receiver to use in-flight with my Android Tablet (Samsung Note 10.1) running Naviator. For Android it also supports Avilution, but I decided to go with Naviator due to Avilution's current lack of support for georeferenced charts (they will probably start supporting it in the next few months, I'll reconsider in a year). IMPORTANT: The number of reviews of people who were "surprised" their favorite tablet software does not support the XGPS170 is quite amusing. Make sure to check that before you invest $700.

OUT OF THE BOX
The box contains the receiver, an antenna, a brief manual (which I found to be well-written), a USB charging cable, and a USB cigarette lighter adapter. No 120V charging adapter, most of us already have a USB charger for our cellphones or our tablets though.

SETUP
I started by charging the unit (takes good few hours - manufacturer says 3 hours, but it takes more than that until the unit claims to be fully charged). I turned it on, set it on non-iPad settings, it paired with the tablet quite easily. I set up Naviator to use the XGPS170, as soon as Naviator recognized the unit, the Bluetooth light on the XGPS170 become solid.
That was easy.
I set the tablet to allow "fake" GPS location, so it could use the GPS from the XGPS170 instead/in addition to/whatever to the tablet's internal GPS. I have no clue whether that even works, there's no indication of where the GPS location comes from.

PERFORMANCE - ADS-B
(I will not cover the GPS aspect of the unit as there's no way for me to even know where my Tablet gets its GPS input).
I tried the unit a bit in my car. I live in the Boston area (i.e. close to a major Class B airport), I had occasional ADS-B input, but I wouldn't count on it on the ground.

Setup was as simple as pairing the receiver to your iphone or ipad just like you do with your car or wireless headset. Simply turn the unit on then on your ipad go to settings, bluetooth, turn on if neccesary, after the scan you will see XGPS170, select and connect. After that it will always connect.

To use, launch WingX on your iPad or iPhone and simply place the unit on your dash. The included rubber housing keeps it in place surpisingly well even during hard landings. Weather information is flawless. In one instance we had the opportunity to compare with the big G and XM. The radar images were identical. Metars and Tafs were updated in realtime. And all this information is free.

Traffic alerts also worked well but require a few key components. Air to Air traffic information is limited to the low altitude or 978mhz data stream. So this requires low altitude GA aircraft equipped with transponders to be seen. Unfortunately this is not to common yet. For high altitude traffic or broadcasts on the 1090mhz stream you will have to rely on the ADS Rebroadcast of traffic responding to localized output. Unforunately we are not in a full coverage area with rebroadcast capabilities so there was no traffic observed. Recently we did have an opportunity to fly into a local coverage area and the traffic in and out of the airport was shown as part of the systems rebroadcasts. On note of interest and possibly caution, you also see your own reflection that looks like another aircraft either above or below or trying to chase you. This is NOT a flaw with the Dual device and was observed with other manufacture's products as well.

Besides the WingX experience on the iPad, there is a switch on the side that makes it compatible with other devices such as Android tablets and phones.

I use the free open source Avare app on three different Android devices (primarily a Nexus 7), and am *very* happy to have acquired a used XGPS170! I do a lot of long cross-country flights (in fact I've flown to every state and province in North America in the past few years). I'm thrilled to have the WAAS GPS and free weather & traffic this unit provides. It works perfectly with all three devices, and the setup was fairly easy. Once the initial Bluetooth "pairing" is done and the free Avare I/O app is configured and some settings are adjusted, it "just works" with the Avare app. Subsequent setup and operation are simple and nearly instantaneous. If you'd like to get clear of monthly weather fees and have free ADS-B coverage in most of the U.S. this device coupled with Avare on most any inexpensive Android device is a great way to go. I fly with a panel mounted GNS430, and this combo simply blows it away in every respect. Flying with VORs to meet the legal requirements is made more viable with all the extra situational awareness provided by Avare with the XGPS170. With the money saved I'm already planning a flight from CA to CO. :)

Verified Purchase
I used this with the AOPA FLYQ EFB app (latest version) and it worked perfectly. This is my first GPS, so I was a little hesitant on spending $699. I thought that I would be fine with just a GPS without the ADS-B. However , as a VFR pilot, I coughed up the money and figured I would get something for weather. I gave it a shot and it fell in love with it. I never lost bluetooth connectivity, position, weather, and speeeds updated quickly and accurately. There is also a comfort knowing that it is a reliable unit and having weather info available.
