Hi:

I just got an email from the FAA stating that several new FIS-B products are slated to go live on ADS-B.

Cool.

So, when might I be able to use those products with my cool IFD440s via my SkyTrax 100?

Thanks!

Hi,
I asked them about this a couple days ago and was told that these items should start displaying automatically as soon as they are inserted into the data stream.   Hopefully we should see these new items soon.

AviSteve answered this in another thread-- see the last post at http://forums.avidyne.com/new-adsb-wx-products-coming-soon_topic1500.html?KW=FIS-B.

There are 2 different pieces to this.

The receiver grabs the ADS-B data stream. It isn't supposed to reformat it or do anything with it except demodulate it and pass it on to the display unit.

The display unit reads the data stream and displays it using whatever symbology it's set up for. 

Avidyne, Foreflight, and other people *may* have to update their display software to handle the new data. The data stream spec has included provisions for these new FIS-B data items for a while, it's just that the FAA wasn't transmitting them. Display vendors who are on the ball might have already included and tested code to display them, but I am betting most didn't. 

Avidyne did not, so they will have to update the IFD software to display the new data.
