Hello all, 
I am about to buy a traffic device to use with my iPad mini. I really love Skydemon and use it for navigation and share the route to my Skyview so I can use the autopilot. 
I fly in EU but I am not fully aware what is the best choice so I can see more traffic. 
I'd be very happy if you share your opinion so I can buy something good.
Thanks, 
Plamen

If you don't care how much it costs, and want a compact plug&play solution: buy a SkyEcho2 and the SkyDemon subscription.
In any other case: buy (or build for yourself) a Stratux (be aware to get a European edition)

In case you are interested in Stratux, please consider Stratux Europe Edition. The above one is just the original website, dedicated to US users.

The SkyEcho2 (SE2)  is small, lightweight, compact, needs no external power (up to 24 hrs in receive only mode before batteries need charging), uses in-built antennas and can receive ADS-B Out and FLARM equipped transmissions. For FLARM reception a small annual subscription needs to be paid to SkyDemon.
The SE2 positioning is important to ensure best possible reception of signals.
Hope this helps.

Thanks, it does help me because I would like to chose something Smile

I have the SkyEcho2 with SD, and it works well.  The only unfortunate part is that many aircraft don't fly with ADS-B out or FLARM out.  SE2 does ADS-B out, which is awesome, but I already had that with my Trig solution.

Same here, I have Garmin GTX 335 with ADSB Out

I also use SkyEcho II with SD subscription. I use one channel for ADS-B in and other for Flarm, as ADSB out is via aircraft transponder. Remember to configure filter for own ADS-B out data with hex code.

Works great and only issues I have is some slow GPS fix and occasional GPS fallout. Great feature is ability to configure from SD, especially if using multiple planes.

I recommend this setup easily.

My main complaint is the "blacked out" areas - would be great to be able to use multiple antennas or even multiple SE2s and combine to one traffic feed to the SD.
