Ash Vij Expands The Capabilities Of His Product Line In An Imaginative (And Useful) Way
Its one thing to come up with a unique product... say, like the amazing CO Guardian product line sold for a number of years by Ash Vij and his CO Guardian organization... but its something else entirely to take that same technology and repurpose it in new, useful and highly creative ways. Like he has with the Aero 454.
Guardian Avionics' (by CO Guardian, LLC.) newest instrument for 21st century panels, the Aero 454, receives data from your airplane's Garmin GPS system (430, 530, 650,750,G900, G1000) and transmits it simultaneously to as many as THREE iPad/tablet devices held by pilots or passengers. An FAA/TSO certified product, it can reference locations, maps, flight plans in the Panel Mounted GPS's, approaches, departures, etc. on your iPad/tablet. There is no GPS signal loss because of banking or a heated windshield and will delight your passengers with ETA through their iPad - eliminating those "Are we there yet?" questions, because it interfaces with 21st century iPads/tablets like nothing else can.
The Aero 454 (with CO detector) mounts easily in most panels; though CO Guardian units are factory installed in all new Cessna 172, 182, 206, 350, 400, Cirrus SR20, SR22, Diamond DA40 and Skycrane helicopter models. Staying in touch with its roots, the Model 454 device is also designed to detect, measure, and provide alerts to the crew of reciprocating engine type aircraft before the cockpit level of carbon monoxide (CO) reaches a critical level. In addition it gives Cabin altitude warning at 10K, 12.5K and 14K.
When integrated with Garmin GPS receivers, the 454 will enable up to THREE OCCUPANTS to receive aircraft GPS data via Bluetooth on their portable devices to monitor their location (Altitude, latitude and longitude) using apps like Flight Guide IEFB, Garmin (My-Cast), ForeFlight, Wing X, Jepp View, and Google Maps. In addition, using the Flight Guide IEFB app, you will be able to receive flight plans from your Garmin unit on your iPad.
