UPSAT Announces Color Navigator
Although everyone in the industry knew it was just a matter of time, UPSAT let the cat out of the bag this week by giving avionics dealers a sneak peek at its new color mapcomm, the CNX80 Integrated Avionics System. The new navigator's color display looks remarkably similar to Garmin's line of color products but its screen size is a bit larger than the Garmin GNS430. The CNX80 has some intriguing interoperability, too. Included is the ability to automatically call up approach plates when connected to UPSAT's large screen MX-20 MFD and the option of a remote transponder controlled entirely from the navigator. UPSAT told AVweb Wednesday that the CNX80 will be certified to TSO C146, the WAAS guidelines and will be available for sale sometime in May. Suggested price for the CNX80 is $11,995.
