I think people are confusing the TailBeacon and the TailBeaconX ?

The TailBeacon is an ADS-B out only solution with a GPS.

The TailBeaconX is a Mode S-ES Transponder with a GPS. With the TailBeaconX you need to use a panel mounted EFIS (AV-30, AF-5600, GRT? ...) to control the Transponder and set the code.
