This is the free AddOn app for our free Avare aviation GPS & EFB app. This app currently provides additional free connectivity to Avare, including NMEA compatibility for using external dedicated ADS-B and GPS receivers in Avare via a Bluetooth or WiFi connection, NMEA output to drive autopilots, and connection with XPlane or Flightgear flight simulators. Actual functions based on this extended connectivity are being added and actively developed, so you'll want to watch our Forum, Website, and the Play Store for updates.

This Avare External I/O Plugin requires the free Avare app, which should be installed first. You can find Avare on Google Play in the list of our free apps under the "More from developer" section below. For details on installation and operation of Avare with this I/O app and use with specific devices, please see our website and search our Forum. The basic steps for use with an external GPS or ADS-B receiver are:

--Installation on your Android device--
- Install Avare
- Install this Avare External I/O Plugin app

1. Turn on the external receiver device and ensure that it's ready and transmitting data via Bluetooth (or WiFi), in a location with clear view of the sky and near the Android device.
2. On your Android device, disable GPS in the settings (optional if you do not want GPS from
tablet internal), and ensure that Bluetooth (or WiFi) is on.
3. Launch the Avare app, go to Preferences, and under GPS select where you want to
get GPS messages (e.g. ADS-B or GPS device), then minimize Avare using Home button of Android device.
4. Launch the IO app, and connect your Android device to the ADSB/GPS device via Bluetooth.
5. Minimize the IO app (like Avare, it will continue running in background).
6. Return to the Avare app and your position will be displayed if available and if other Avare settings are correct. Note that Avare's GPS tab will be blank when using an external GPS in this way.

While all this may look complex, users report that once the initial setup is done the routine setup and operation is simple and intuitive.

*Based on manufacturer and carrier implementations, Android devices handle Airplane Mode differently. If you use Avare in Airplane Mode, the Bluetooth transceiver in your device may or MAY NOT be active. It's possible that if Bluetooth isn't working on your device after you activate Airport Mode, it may work if you simply turn on Bluetooth again while in Airplane Mode. You could also further investigate how your device actually handles airplane mode with a free tool such as Airplane Mode Modifier.
*In many locations, little or no ADS-B reception may be available, especially on the ground, so you may need to be flying at or above 3,000' AGL to receive ADS-B data. If so, you may be able to receive at least the data from any long-haul airliners passing overhead transmitting ADS-B Out.

Great Add On Working perfectly for me connecting to X-Plane. This plugin makes Avare a truly useful Flight Sim tool.

Will not connect to FSX No matter what I try even using the Avare guide, I can't get a signal on Avare using FSX

Monty Suffern

dual Xgps170 and an Asus transformer 101 Anyone had any luck connecting these devices using avare external I/O plugin. I have not been able to make it work as yet. The message I get is Failed! Socket connection error. Finding socket for SPP secure = true. BT finding devices Connecting to Xgps170 Failed. Any help would be appreciated. Monty from Waco Thank you for the very fast response to my query. Turning off the secure feature allowed proper connection. Very happy to upgrade the rating to 5 stars, though I am still learning all the information available on ADS-B

JB Smith

How do I connect to FSX? Please help

Miko Smitho

Works Perfect! Finally, an Android contender for ForeFlite.

Bruce Bockius

Great Thanks for the hard work!

Awesome!! Wow, what a great developer. Very quick to respond to emails and help resolve issues A++++

Frank Hernandez

This application is incredible thank you so much

Stolgrove Gredenko

Great add on Took a few hours to sync this with xplane, but now it runs fairly well. One time setup, after that I just turn it on and it's good to go. Thank you for this application

Not connecting to X-plane Says it's listening and reading data, but displays no lat/lon. No response from Avare.

Terry Meyer

Not connecting to Bad Elf Pro Both my Droid Bionic and my Bad Elf GPS Pro indicate that a Bluetooth connection has been established. Avare External I/O Plugin does not list the Bad Elf as being a connection option. Is this expected?

Michael Inflorida

As advertised! Works great on samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1 and s2 phone using Cy Young´s Stratux on Raspberry Pi.

Jon Mclin

The right glue Just works

Richard Misener

Works great Works great with my Nexus 7 (2013) and my Dual XGPS170.

Kirk K

Great for FSX This works great with FSX. WiFi plug-in works great though I have read most are using bluetooth. nice to have options. I have noticed one thing but it has no effect on software. Computer plugin reads v.5 when you conect and v .4 when you disconnect. not a problem just odd to see version number change.

Peter Scott

Not connecting to X-plane Says it's listening and reading data, but displays no lat/lon. No response from Avare.

Mike Dwyer

Remember settings I'd like it better if it would remember my wifi setting. It changes to bluetooth on its own. Samsung 10.1 tablet, Sirux ADS-B.

Greg Pyke

Keeps changing to BT Works fine when connected to the Wi-Fi. But automatically changes to Bluetooth in the middle of the flight. Needs a way to make a default other than Bluetooth for those who use other inputs.

Miro Markarian

Cool but can be improved Pretty cool addition to Avare. Would be way better if it could listen to ADS-B UAT and Mode S messages from dump978 or dump1090 published using a webserver for traffic visualization

Michael Inflorida

As advertised! Works great on samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1 and s2 phone using CYoung´s Stratux on Raspberry Pi.

Joseph Tiseo

Works well

Mike Dwyer

The latest Beta update is great. On startup it saves my settings wifi, 4000 and connect. Would be 6 stars if it would automatically start when I start Avare! Samsung 10.1 tablet and S4 phone, Stratux ADS-B.

Patrick Duran

Resets every time I use it. I have to go into wifi (it always defaults to Bluetooth) when I start the app and change the listening port every time since the new "update."

Alan Wieder

Resets every time Nexus 7 and Stratus. I have to choose wifi, set port to 4000, and check listen every time I start the I/O add-on.

Bruce Bockius

Great Thanks for the hard work!
