The Power of Hybrid Touch
Hybrid Touch means virtually all functions performed via the touch-screen can also be accomplished with the knobs/buttons, except pinch-zoom, map panning, and graphical flight plan editing. Hybrid Touch gives you the choice.
The Easy Choice
Over the years, pilots have chosen Avidyne for our MFDs, PFDs, and safety sensors because we design great avionics products that make flying safer and more fun. It’s no secret that ‘Ease of Use’ is truly the hallmark of all Avidyne products, and now with the IFD540 & IFD440, Avidyne is setting a new standard in easy user interface for FMS/GPS/NAV/COMs.
Advancements in touch screen technology have enabled the design team at Avidyne—virtually all of whom are pilots—to optimize our user interface for the new IFD Series. The powerful new MultiTouch interface allows pilots to gesture using two fingers on the capacitive touch screens to easily scroll and zoom the map range setting in and out. In addition to touch screen, we have maintained familiar knob and button controls. This 'Hybrid Touch' user interface provides pilots the choice when interacting with the IFDs for such functions as flight planning, map control, and frequency management.
Leveraging the highly-intuitive Page & Tab user interface of our Entegra Release 9 system, the IFDs provide plainly-labeled tabs, bi-directional keys, on-screen touch-sensitive labels, and a flat menu structure that makes it much easier to access the information you want when you want it.
The IFD-Series represents the next generation in FMS/GPS/NAV/COM systems, and is capable of providing precision position information to support ADS-B as part of the NextGen airspace initiative.
When it comes to panel-mounted avionics, you now have a choice and the choice is easy. Avidyne.
