Slow and steady wins the race... and you have to hand it to
Avidyne for their ability to slowly and surely build their company
and its product lines to a point where once-mighty Garmin has to be
looking over their shoulder in a big way.
Avidyne introduced a full line of panel-mounted, plug-and-play
avionics for general aviation aircraft at EAA AirVenture on Monday.
Avidyne’s new avionics stack includes the IFD540
FMS/GPS/Navigation/Communication system with touch screen user
interface, the AMX240 stereo Audio Panel with Marker Beacon, the
AXP340 Mode S Extended Squitter (ES) Transponder, and the
attitude-based DFC90 Digital Autopilot.
Each of these products is designed to be a plug-and-play
replacement for previous generation avionics systems, while adding
significant performance, ease-of-use, and safety enhancements.
The IFD540 is a plug-and-play replacement for the popular GNS530
series navigators, the AMX240 is a plug-and-play replacement for
the GMA340 and PMA8000 series audio panels, the AXP340 is a
plug-and-play replacement for existing KT76A/KT78A transponders,
and the DFC90 is currently certified as a plug-and-play replacement
for the STEC55X autopilot.
