Company to Demonstrate New Capability with Stratux ADS-B Receiver at Show
DroidEFB, the leading aviation navigation and in flight support app for Android devices, will be exhibiting at the SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In and Expo convention. SUN ‘n FUN, Florida’s largest aviation air show will be held on April 5 -10 at Lakeland-Linder Regional Airport. DroidEFB provides pilots with real-time situational awareness via a GPS moving map and this year will be exhibiting at the show in partnership with Open Flight Solutions, makers of the FlightBox ADS-B receiver kit based on the popular Stratux open source software project.
Based on strong demand from users, DroidEFB recently released Version 2.1.1 that adds official support for Stratux ADS-B software. At SUN ‘n FUN, the DroidEFB team will demonstrate its new ADS-B capability via integration with FlightBox, an ADS-B receiver that runs the free, open source Stratux software.
Two Android Tablets Loaded with DroidEFB to be Given Away at SUN ‘n FUN
The DroidEFB team will be at booths N-058, N-059, N-064, N-065. Stop by for a chance to win an Android tablet complete with a FlightBox ADS-B Receiver running Stratux ADS-B Software. Visitors to the booth will be able to have hands-on access to demo the Android tablets running DroidEFB and experience in real-time how the app functions with the Stratux/FlightBox ADS-B unit.
“We are happy to be able to provide integration with the Stratux/FlightBox receiver and partner with them at one of the largest aviation shows in the nation,” said Director of Engineering, Jacek Duda. “Our team worked hard to ensure that the newest version was ready for SUN ‘n FUN. We are very excited to demonstrate our new ADS-B compatibility with the Stratux/FlightBox ADS-B Unit. It’s a significant enhancement to go along with our other great app features: real-time weather, traffic, TFRs, and other flight data for Android devices,” continued Jacek.
Jacek commented further, “While participating in this event for the last 3 years, we have found that allowing customers to interface with DroidEFB on an actual Android tablet was the best way for them to fully explore all our features. We are also able to gain keen insights on how to improve our application through our customer’s hands-on feedback while using DroidEFB. With our new version and Stratux/FlightBox we are bringing an even more complete customer experience this year.”
