HEATHROW, FL. (July 23, 2013) - Building upon the success of its popular XGPS150,Dual Electronics Corporationtoday announced the addition of theXGPS160 SkyPro GPS Receiver.

The XGPS160 connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to up to 5 devices, and its internal rechargeable battery lasts 10 hours of continuous use. The XGPS160 is shipping now and will be available for purchase at the 2013 EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, July 29 - August 5. The XGPS160 will retail at $149.99.

"We continue to be encouraged by the response to our GPS products from the aviation community, and are pleased to be offering another great GPS solution for pilots,"said Greg Lukins, Vice President, Business Development, Dual. "The new XGPS160 SkyPro GPS Receiver, as the name implies, was designed specifically for use in aircraft. Faster signal acquisition, GPS and GLONASS reception, and even longer battery life are all features pilots will appreciate whether they are in a SuperCub or the Dreamliner,"added Lukins.

This WAAS GPS receiver works with all current EFB apps, including ForeFlight, Garmin Pilot and WingX Pro7.
