Frequently Asked Questions
How is the SV-ADSB-472 different from the SV-ADSB-470?
The SV-ADS-472 is a dual band ADS-B receiver (UAT/978 MHz & 1090 MHz), while the SV-ADSB-470 receives only on UAT/978 MHz. This allows the SV-ADSB-472 to see aircraft equipped with 1090ES ADS-B Out equipment when outside the range of an ADS-B ground station. The SV-ADSB-472 is a drop-in replacement for the SV-ADSB-470, with identical wiring. Note that the SV-ADSB-472 is smaller, has different mounting dimensions, and the connectors are located differently than they are on the SV-ADSB-470.
I have an SV-ADSB-470. Will Dynon have a trade-in program so that I can obtain an SV-ADSB-472?
Yes. Dynon has an affordable trade-in program for SV-ADSB-470 customers that would like to upgrade to the SV-ADSB-472.
I currently have the SV-ADSB-470. How is the SV-ADSB-472 different? Should I upgrade?
The SV-ADSB-470 and SV-ADSB-472 receive identical weather, as weather is only sent over 978 MHz, and both products receive on 978 MHz.
For traffic, the SV-ADSB-472 receives traffic via both ADS-B frequencies - UAT/978 MHz & 1090 MHz. The SV-ADSB-470 receives traffic via UAT/978 MHz only. While one might think this makes the SV-ADSB-472 superior, they are closer in capability than many realize.
Neither product (nor any other ADS-B receiver) can see aircraft that is are not equipped with ADS-B Out. Although more aircraft will equip as 2020 approaches, a sizeable percentage of the fleet will choose to not equip at all (they’ll need to avoid ADS-B rule airspace after 2020). The FAA’s ADS-B network of ground stations are designed to deal with this issue, and when your aircraft is talking to a ground station via ADS-B Out, both the SV-ADSB-470 and SV-ADSB-472 receive the same traffic information back. When you are ADS-B Out equipped, and are in a radar coverage area, the ADS-B ground stations relay all traffic targets that are around you. If you are in range of a ground station but not in a radar coverage area, the ground stations will still relay all other ADS-B Out equipped traffic. This means that whenever you are within range of a ground station, you see all possible traffic with either receiver. The only time the SV-ADSB-272 (or any dual band receiver) has an advantage is when you are flying in an area that is not covered by an ADS-B ground station. This is most likely to be the case in mountainous terrain, or very near the ground (the ADS-B system is designed to cover almost the entire US at 1800’, with coverage beginning much lower in most places). Even in this situation, the advantage of a dual band receiver is slight: In this case, the SV-ADSB-470 will see UAT equipped aircraft, while the SV-ADSB-472 will see both UAT and 1090ES equipped aircraft. However, NEITHER receiver will see aircraft that aren’t equipped with ADS-B Out. Because many aircraft - especially in remote areas - are not ADS-B equipped, and these are NEVER visible to any ADS-B receiver if you are not in range of a ground station. All of that said, if you’d like to upgrade your SV-ADSB-470 for an SV-ADSB-472, we do have a generous trade-in program available.
