Did you ever see the traffic with that one? I have been using one and I think I may have not downloaded all I need, because i haven't seen any traffic yet.




Oh boy. Simple question - long answer ahead:

After upgrading the firmware on the Stratus 1, I -did- see -some- traffic, based on the limitations of a 978 MHz UAT ADS-B In device in an aircraft that is not configured to tell ground stations that you have ADS-B In capabilities on 978 MHz.

Basically, if you have ADS-B Out, configured to say you have ADS-B In on 978 MHz you -should- now see ALL available traffic including that re-broadcast from the ground.

I've just had the final piece of the puzzle put in place for me today.

In our case, while we have ADS-B Out in two of our aircraft thanks to the Garmin GTX-330ES, the older software (older than last week!) could not be configured to request ADS-B In to be sent to your aircraft on 978 MHz. As of software version 7.0.2 for the 330ES, released just last week, that option can now be configured.

Without that option, you will only see traffic when someone around you with ADS-B Out request ADS-B In to be broadcast on 978 MHz.
