Bearingless Targets is an option in SD (see Nav options) - what are these and why is there an objection to showing
SE2 Bearingless Mode c/s Targets?

Bearing less targets are contacts from mode C/S transponders. Their altitude is known but their position (ie direction and range) is unknown since mode C/S does not provide position information.

Of course I knew this George but could not understand why SD was not interested in a similar offering from SE2 - see above.
 I have given up bothering about it now and will join you with Pilot Aware.

The SkyEcho 2 doesn't currently implement bearingless targets as we all know them from FLARM and PilotAware.

Many thanks everybody for your messages. I think this subject is verry interesting even it wil never replace the eyes. But every help is welkom.

I'm currently trying to configue my Trig TT21 to broadcast ADS-B out. Then I will probably investigate to buy the most appropriate ADS-B in compatible with SkyDemon.

If I understood correctly, one tips to verify that my transponder broadcasts ADS-B out is to go on flightradar24. If I see my plane, it's because it's broadcasting in ADS-B out.

Frederic,
I have a TT21 and have connected an uncertified GPS mouse to it to produce the ADS-B out capability. Yes, FR 24 is good for checking as is Planefinder. Your Trig TT21 also has a feature where it displays your current Lat, Lon and Ht on the display so you can verify your interface is working okay.

Is enabling ADS-B out with an uncertified GPS legal? Even if, you are contributing to 1090 congestion without being visible to the airliners. Just a short comment.

Just because an aircraft shows up on FR24 does not necessarily mean that it is equipped with ADS-B Out. FR24 can display aircraft with Mode S and no ADS-B Out, and aircraft with Mode A/C only, using a technology known as multilateration (MLAT) and ground based receivers.

Tony, Markus, Mike,

Many thanks to all of you.

I am not sure that the workshop has connected my Garmin GPS to the Trig TT21 transponder. I suppose yes.
I will fly tomorrow and will take the opportunity to try to configure the transponder (GPS type, speed transfer..). I will be able to check it by displaying the ADS-B Monitor (see Tony's message).

About FR24, I understood that the signals were intercepted on the ground by a network of "private volunteers" with as main material the reading of ADS-B signals. Some of then are also equipped to receive the C / S transponder but are less numerous. 
I thought it was because of this reason that I do not always see my aircraft in FR24 but sometimes only short portions of my flights ... and always at the same places. But I am not an expert on FR24 and I can, of course, be wrong

Many thanks for your help.
