GRT Discovery ADSB receiver
 
I'm considering getting a GRT Discovery ADSB receiver to connect to my GRT Horizon 10.1. I currently have an Open Flight Solutions ADSB receiver that I'm having problems with.
I was wondering if anybody is using this receiver yet and how well it works?

I'm also considering this. Interested in Pirep.

GRT ADSB
 
I installed one a few months ago. Installation was simple and works great.

What kind of antenna was included, and where did you mount the antenna?

Brian installed one in his Kitfox, good review of the installation and operation with his GRT Horizon 10.1 here:

Looooong wait!
 
I ordered one on February 7th. I was told 7 weeks at the time. Still waiting... On the plus side, GRT does not take any money until it ships. It looks really promising at the right price.

Cheers, Sean

It's here
 
I got my long overdue receiver today. So, giving some leeway for shipping internationally, figure on 16 weeks delivery. Looking forward to trying it out.

Cheers, Sean

I'm glad you got your receiver, I ordered one on 5-30-2022, I guess I still have a wait ahead of me. I'd be interested in hearing how it works out for you.

Is the Discovery a receiver only, or does it also transmit your ADSB position as well? Doesn’t really take the place of the uAvionix Echo package if it doesn't send out position info - correct?

The Discovery is receiver only.
