It would be helpful to hear a summary of a) the equipment cost, plus b) the install costs and what they were for, along with c) what already-installed equipment this solution was dependent on (since other a/c would not necessarily be similarly equipped). Thanks for the offer to gather impressions & share!
$975 plus shipping for the ADS-B out transponder kit.http://adsb.skyguardtwx.com/uat-transmitter/
ZERO INSTALL COST:
Zero install cost as it is a portable unit. The only constraint is if the 12V accessory plug had enough amps. If the SkyGuard were hardwired they recommend either a 3A slow-blow fuse or a 5A quick-blow fuse.
Here's the setup guide:http://adsb.skyguardtwx.com/wp-content/ ... ctions.pdf
Either: iPhone / iPad / Andrioid / iFly to setup
You can use whatever ADS-B IN unit you want.
In my case I'm using the Stratus II for ADS-B in / TIS in to ForeFlight
and my Garmin GTX 330 / Garmin 696 for TIS in on the panel.
The Garmin equipment is already installed in my plane.
The Stratus II is $899 from Sporty'sNote: TIS-A is different from ADS-B. An ADS-B OUT ground station trigger will not provide TIS traffic, you still need an ADS-B In device and display (Stratus, Garmin GDL, etc.)
OTHER SkyGuard Options:
SkyGuard also makes two additional transceiver models if you want to use their system for ADS-B both IN and OUT. Cost is $1475 or $1875 with AHRS
