App Description

◆◆◆ This App requires ADS-B Receiver Hardware - see info below ◆◆◆

ADS-B Radar lives on your menu bar, at a glance you know how many aircraft are currently within reception range of your ADS-B receiver.

Open the map to view all aircraft and ADS-B flight statistics such as callsign, speed, squawk, vertical speed, category, track, distance, country of registration, etc.

The route is visible on the map, blue represents level flight, while green, orange and red represent an increasing/decreasing vertical rate of speed.

Configure local notifications based on callsigns, icao codes, countries, aircraft category, squawks, altitude, vertical rate, speed, distance and number of aircraft within reception range.

Re-post each notification with aircraft flight data in JSON to a web server for further processing. This will allow you to convert it to an email, tweet, message, log to a database, etc.

A search bar will quickly identify aircraft on the map based on a search for callsign, icao code, country or category.

Switch to fullscreen for a better view and uninterrupted radar mode.

Should the ADS-B signal contain the aircraft category, 14 different aircraft icons are available ranging from light to heavy, a glider, a helicopter, a drone or an airport vehicle.

A polar plot will automatically determine the exact reception range of your receiver in all directions, and plot it on the map.

The altitude filter will reduce the amount of aircraft on the map to show only the aircraft between two altitudes.

The app keeps track of how many aircraft it spots during the day and plots the statistics in a "last 7 days" graph.

With the share button you can easily share a snapshot of the map with aircraft and flight data.
