Stratux type parts? Avare should work!
I use a Dualgps170 with USB cable into my GRT EFIS through a powered usb hub. I also, at the same time, run Avare on my droid from the bluetooth out of the GPS170.
The Dual was $479 at Oshkosh 2014. It is "only" 978 not 1090. It is great for Wx, but I do not trust it for traffic. But, I trust nothing but eyes for traffic. I have flown high speed non-electric and gliders and learned better. It is a nice aid.

I use Avare on a first gen Nexus 7 with a Pathfinder ADSB in receiver. The Avare app has had great improvements made over the last year so that it is a first rate app with weather, including colored green or red balls at airports, and traffic shows up with a + or - altitude. This is a real solution that really works and is low cost.

I assembled a Stratux from bits & pieces, following Cy Young's web page.
It works great on my wife's iPad, but I've not been able to get it to work on my 2013 Nexus 7 with Avare. I have downloaded the Avare I/O app, which shows port 43211 and I get a brief data note in the field at the bottom before I open Avare. I'm probably missing something, although others have mentioned difficulty getting Avare to recognize Stratux at first. Once going they report good results.
If someone here has a tip, please chime in.
I have been very satisfied with a 7" tablet on a knee board for tandem RVs.
Getting WiFi data to it means NO CABLES which reduces cockpit clutter.
