Ya gotta hand it to Avidyne... they've been on the march, of late, in terms of aggressive product development and the willingness to give other/larger companies some REAL competition. With their most recent move into the replacement and aftermarket avionics sector, Avidyne is introducing the IFD510 SBAS/LPV/RNP-capable GPS Navigation System with a touch screen user interface.
The IFD510 is a slide-in replacement for existing GPS500/W GPS-only navigators found in many turbo-prop and light jet aircraft, and is an extension of Avidyne’s recently-announced plug-and-play avionics line, which includes the IFD540, touch-screen FMS/GPS/NAV/COM. The new system was introduced, opening day, at the 64th NBAA Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas.
“The IFD510 is ideally suited for turbine-class aircraft owners who are looking to move into a higher-capability FMS with an exceptionally easy to use touch-screen user interface,” said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne’s Chief Operating Officer. “Its plug-and-play design means that pilots who have been flying with GPS500/W series navigators can easily upgrade to the IFD510 with very little aircraft down time.”
Avidyne also announced that all of their panel mounted avionics, including the IFD510, the IFD540, the AMX240 Audio Panel, and the AXP340 Mode Transponder with ADS-B Out, will be available with optional Grey bezels which are designed to be more aesthetically suited to match the other avionics in typical turbine-class aircraft panels.
