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!

** Please note: YOU NEED ADDITIONAL HARDWARE TO USE THIS APP

Visit http://hiz.ch/index.php/home/adsb-receiver for more details!

Use this app to provide live ADSB data to Avare! All data received (traffic and weather) will be made available automatically, once Avare has been detected. (Make sure to enable "Use ADSB Weather" in Avare.) Download Avare to display Nexrad weather and standard METAR, TAF, PIREP, WINDS, etc. reports!

It's free:

This test version is fully functional but comes with a package limit. Please consider buying the "Pro" version to support the development of this app. We need a lot of hardware... Thanks!!

Pro version:
http://hiz.ch/fwd/ps.AvareADSBpro.html

USAGE

Attach a supported USB dongle to your Android device using an OnTheGo (OTG) cable. (Make sure your device supports OTG!) This app will automatically start once a device has been detected. Answer `yes` if you are asked to auto-open the app, it will immediately try to receive ADSB data. You should see packages flowing in quickly, depending on your location.

HARDWARE

List of supported tuners:

• Rafael Micro R820T (recommended)
• Rafael Micro R820T2 (recommended)
• Elonics E4000
• Fitipower FC0013 (low performance)

FC0013 is supported, but often has limits close to 1090 MHz, which can reduce the performance to receive ADSB data.

Example dongles:

NooElec NESDR Nano (R820T) (recommended - good antenna!)

Needs more run time. Seems to work on my note4 but not the Samsung tab2?. Not enough time on the so called free/test version to consider buying what can be obtained free from another source.

Javier Victor Mariano Bruno

Awesome work Awesome app. Still simple but do the work as expected

tommy davachi

Rtl2832u with xperia z ultra rooted Sees my sdr and shows packets but doesnt show on map. Edit: it works great now. I just would want tosee one addition and thats to see what is differwnt maps and hiw to use them in help section.

adam smith

Amazing Love this app. I would pay if you could figure out how to do WX. It is vastly more important to me than traffic.

Bob Burton

Auto start cannot be disabled Auto starts when dongle is connected. Re-starts if stopped. Will not allow SDRTouch to access the dongle. UPDATE Found a solution. First start Avar ADSB. Then connect dongle. Ten start SDRTouch. Then quit Avar ADSB. It will not restart and not interfere with SDRTouch.

rom bailey

Works for short time only Works for q short time only then you have to buy the pro version or resart. So far have not found it of any use whatsoever, shame as it does have potential

ADSB Receiver Tried to open on samsung 2 tab got error 71. sadly won't open prog

Easy Setup on my Samsung S2 phone and Samsung 10.1 (2013) tablet I bought the RTL2832U+R820T DVB-T USB Digital TV Tuner Receiver for $8 on eBay. Hooking it to my S2 phone with the little 4" tall antenna inside my house it started picking up jets flying over right away. I'm still trying to figure out how to make the planes appear on my Avare application but the data is there on the ADSB application. My Tablet said "High Current Application" on the USB port. I wonder, can I tap into the USB wire and put 5V USB power there, maybe with a couple of good diodes? Will wait for the weather and small aircraft to show up but this first attempt is flawless! Note: my S2 is Rooted.

I will post a full review on the Avare website and Forum. For now just let me say how exciting it is to see ADSB traffic on Avare with a $10 receiver! Thank you! :)

Kev Glacken

No planes on map Receiving data but not shown planes?

Mike Dwyer

I bought the RTL2832U+R820T DVB-T USB Digital TV Tuner Receiver for $8 on eBay. DON'T DO IT. This device only receives to 800mhz. Even so, hooking it to my S2 phone and my Samsung 10.1 Note, with the little 4" tall antenna inside my house it started picking up jets flying over right away. My Tablet said "High Current Application" on the USB port. I wonder, can I tap into the USB wire and put 5V USB power there, maybe with a couple of good diodes? UPDATE: 978 weather and small aircraft is now available. You have to select 978 or 1090. Would have liked to get both. When set to 1090mhz but says my RTL is not compatible at 978. Bummer. Think I'll go buy one of the recommended radios. Heck it's only $18.

karl gruber

Please make this work with AvNav......Then I'll give it more stars!!! Good work!

Ferdinand Badescu

Works... not quite! (follow up) INITIAL POST: There was this BIG problem with being unable to use any of the functions - Map, Data, Options, Help, except for Restart and Exit on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4". UPDATE: Unchecking " Do not keep activities" under "Developer options" solved the problem. The app now works beautifully. The developer is very responsive to all requests for help (check the reviews); he even offered a free copy of the Pro version! Outstanding customer service, wish there were more developers like him. (FYI, I turned the offer down - IMHO, this developer deserves to be helped.) TO SUM UP: SDR hardware - $11...20. ADS-B software $2.60. Having a tool in the cockpit that helps you avoid midair collisions, and a developer that responds immediately to a request for support: PRICELESS! I would give this app a 6 *.

Bryan Smith

Pro version? Why am I not seeing any option to view the maps in the description? I paid for the upgrade but nothing seems different from the free version. I restarted my device which is supported but nothing new shows. Thank you for the reply

ALMOST AWESOME . . . This would be an awesome app except for one fatal and one annoying flaws. There is no provision to adjust for tuning error, if your device is off by more than a couple of PPM it will not receive any data. There needs to be an option to place the error offset in units of + or - PPM. Also PLEASE add an option to NOT try to start the app when I plug in the device! Most times when I plug in the device it's to use the radio app, not to run this app...

The Best The Best ADS-B Decoder app for Android !

marc leydecker

This is THE BEST ADSB app available! The integration with Avare is just out of this world Now you can track your planes on any type of aeronautical chart even can draw notes on the screen! "the other" ADS-B app was a joke and a recourse hog Wishlist: the possibility to enter the frequency deviation (PPM) maybe a few more flight details SUPERB

Umair Siddiqi

Did not work on my samsung tab S

Adam Liston

Didn't work for me..

Kevin Groce

Slow to show data in a very data rich environment.

Alex Grigoryev

Doesn't work on Nexus 6, Android N. Access to device disabled. USB dongle works on PC.

Lin Jones

It is great! Initially had a snag with the usb port, but thanks to excellent after sales service this issue has been dealt with as it was a external driver problem, NOT this app. Have since purchased the Pro Version with same success, thanks Micheal

Charles Cartlidge

The app seems to work as advertised I am simply having trouble with my setup I think linked to the antenna connection. Hi I have had limited success getting this to work on the ground with a NooElec 820T and problems in the air. If you could please help me troubleshoot it would be appreciated thanks.

Matt Wood

Launched on my S6 but then only showed the map with no aircraft!!! :-(

Javier Victor Mariano Bruno

Awesome app. Still simple but do the work as expected UPDATE: I just came to update about this app, since I saw some negative comments. I beta-test this app, I have the free and I paid for the pro too since its incredible good work from the dev. I tested thi on several cellphones, and for several I mean more than 40+. With modified rooms, kernles, and a super bit etc. The app works flawless always. I use a SDR with an Y cable. Since I have my sdr connected to a board that have step down and up (for sdr radio) havce a micro usb connector, so I have an OTG cable (micro usb to USB female), then an Y cable (the one that came for external hard drives, 2 usb male to mini usb) and the board. the data part of the Y cable to the otg and the other usb to an external battery backup power ( the one that help you to charge your phone when you are not at home). The SDR some times use more power than your phone can provide thru otg. So this will fix like 99% of the problems, and people can stop blaming the app when the problem is hardware. Keep up the awesome work Mike!
