Cool Avionics Tricks 101: Avidyne Unveils Multi-Touch Functionality For IFD540

Touch-Screen FMS/GPS/NAV/COM Offers 'Additional Capabilities'

Avidyne tells ANN that Multi-Touch capability will be included with their recently-announced IFD540 GPS/ Navigation/ Communication system. Multi-Touch allows pilots to gesture using two or more fingers on the capacitive touch screen to easily scroll and zoom the map range setting in and out. The IFD540 with Multi-Touch will be on display in the Avidyne booth (AOPA #1120) this week in Hartford, Conn.

"In addition to all the great features we announced at the introduction of the IFD540, Multi-Touch is one of the 'additional capabilities' we said that we would be rolling out over the next several months," said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne's Chief Operating Officer.

"The plug-and-play IFD540 is getting rave reviews for its innovation and ease of use, and Multi-Touch makes the user interface even easier for pilots."

"The IFD540 is the result of significant investments in technology and years of innovation at Avidyne, and customers will really appreciate its ease of use and pilot-centric operation," said Dan Schwinn, Avidyne's President and CEO. "Multi-Touch is just one example of the many cool features that set the IFD540 apart from what is currently available in the market. Stay tuned for more."

The IFD540 is Avidyne's FMS/GPS/NAV/COM, which is the centerpiece of their newly-announced plug-and-play avionics stack. The IFD540 is a slide-in replacement for the popular GNS530 navigators, providing powerful navigation, communication, and multi-function display capability as found in our award-winning Entegra Release 9 systems in a touch screen, panel-mounted avionics form factor. The IFD540 with GPS/NAV/COM/FMS and 10-Watt VHF transmit power has a retail price of $16,995 including tray and installation kit, and is expected to be available in the second half of 2012. The 16 Watt transmit power upgrade is $4,995. The integrated TAWS-B option is an additional $7,995.
