Data available for both 1090 ES and 978UAT equipped aircraft: ADS-B Traffic that includes Radar detected aircraft, ADS-B and Transponder equipped aircraft. Also receive traffic data directly from other ADS-B Out equipped aircraft when outside the range of ground stations.
Data available for 978UAT equipped aircraft only: Subscription Free Weather, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, METARs, NEXRAD, NOTAMs, TFRs, PIREPs, SUA Status, TAFs, and Winds/Temps Aloft.
This modernization effort is one of the most ambitious infrastructure projects in U.S. history. Instead of making minor upgrades to aging infrastructure, the FAA and its partners continue to implement major new technologies and capabilities in shaping a modern, resilient, and secure National Airspace System that serves more than 2.7 million passengers and 44,000 flights per day.
NextGen is not one technology, product, or goal. The modernization effort encompasses innovative and transformative technologies that are being developed and implemented after thorough testing for safety.
The first core technology in the program is Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B). By January 1, 2020 aircraft operating in most US controlled airspace must be equipped with ADS-B Out avionics. The goal of this new technology is to increase the safety of our skies. Traditional radar-based systems update every 3-15 seconds but ADS-B Out avionics transmit data once every second! ]
Also, if you are equipped with ADS-B In, you will be able to receive location information directly from the ADS-B Out equipped aircraft around you. To be compliant with the new rule aircraft will need an approved GPS/WAAS as the ADS-B position source and an ADS-B Out datalink radio to relay the information. The datalink radio can be either 1090ES or 978UAT. If you fly below FL180, 978UAT is highly recommended. ADS-B In receivers are not required but are also encouraged as a useful addition to your avionics that will enable you to receive valuable weather and traffic data without a subscription based service.

The ADS-B Out rule does not apply in the airspace defined in items 1 and 2 above for any aircraft that was not originally certificated with an electrical system or that has not subsequently been certified with such a system installed, including balloons and gliders. Source: FAA ADS-B FAQ
