Exhausting is the first word that comes to mind (there are others well refrain from printing) when looking back at our ADS-B coverage this past editorial year. Eyeball the ADS-B buyers guide in the April 2016 issue of Aviation Consumer and youll see why. Its a market busting at the seams with panel and portable solutions. A major player is L-3 Avionics. Since its introduction nearly two years ago, we felt that L-3s transponder-based Lynx NGT-9000 was an excellent all-in-one ADS-B In and Out solution, though we also felt that its high price limited it to higher-end aircraft. But after a few major price reductions (it now starts at $5395), an entry-level NGT-9000 is within reach of more buyers. Plus, it packs a lot of punch in a single box.
