** Android 5.0/Lollipop: this version requires additional access permissions to communicate with the USB dongle and will currently not work. We are looking into the related updates.
** Please note: YOU NEED ADDITIONAL HARDWARE TO USE THIS APP
This app enables your device to display live ADSB data (1090ES) from surrounding airborne aircraft. All you need is a supported USB dongle and an OTG cable, both available from various sources on the internet for less than $20.-.

The received data can also be used to display live air traffic in Avare:
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. Thanks!!
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.
If you`re using Avare:
Simply start the Avare External I/O Plugin app, select `WIFI` and activate listening on port 43211. You will start to see other airplane on the Avare map, once enough data has been gathered. Please make sure to enable the related option `Show ADSB Traffic` in Avare.

List of supported tuners:
• Rafael Micro R820T (recommended!)
• Elonics E4000 (low performance)
• Fitipower FC0013 (low performance)
E4000 and FC0013 are supported, but both have limits close to 1090 MHz, which can reduce their performance to receive ADSB data.
NooElec NESDR Nano SDR and DVB-T USB Stick (R820T)
Tested OTG cables:
OTG plus charging, requires power source
Micro USB Host OTG Y-Cable with Micro USB Power Charging for Samsung Phones
Micro USB to USB2.0 A Female OTG Data Host Cable for Nexus 7 Galaxy S3 S4 (C-722)
