Avidyne Announces Software Upgrades to Accommodate ADS-B

Avidyne announces plans for ADS-B compatibility with software version R9.4 for Entegra R9 Integrated Flight Deck, and R8.2 for EX-Series MFDs.

Oshkosh, WI – Sunday, July 24, 2016 – 

Avidyne Corporation announced that they are currently developing software releases that will add ADS-B compatibility for their Entegra Release 9 (R9) Integrated Flight Deck and also for the EX-Series Multi-function Displays (MFD). 

Release 9.4 adds support for Avidyne’s AXP322 remote-mount transponder for ADS-B Out, and compatibility with Avidyne’s SkyTrax100 receiver for ADS-B In.  In addition, this release adds support for vertical guidance for GPS approaches (LP+V), and also enables the Take Off/Go Around (TOGA) feature for R9-equipped Cirrus aircraft that have the DFC100 autopilot. 

R8.2 enables the display of ADS-B In Traffic and subscription-free FIS-B Wx on Avidyne’s EX500, EX600, and EX5000 Series MFDs using Avidyne SkyTrax100 receiver.

“We continue to develop product improvements and upgrades for our Entegra R9 and EX-Series MFD products, and these particular software upgrades provide timely support for our customers looking to meet the 2020 ADS-B mandate,” said Avidyne CEO, Dan Schwinn.

Pricing and Availability

Both of these software updates are field-loadable and will be available through your authorized Avidyne dealer later this year. Pricing will be announced upon certification.
