Dynon debuts D2 Pocket Panel Portable EFIS

Dynon has introduced the D2, a second model to the Pocket Panel product line. The D2 adds WiFi connectivity to allow flight data to be sent to iPad, smartphone, and tablet aviation applications, and has a second screen with a G-Meter.

WiFi connectivity allows attitude and GPS ground speed, altitude, Gs, and ground track to be sent from the D2 in real-time to an aviation application, which can then show that data on a flight information display, according to company officials.

Compatible applications include the WingX Pro7, AOPA FlyQ, BendixKing myWingMan, iHUD Remote, and Air Navigation Pro.

The D1 and D2 use the same Dynon MEMS-based AHRS technology. Both products are true artificial horizons with accurate pitch and roll, and can find the horizon even if turned on in flight, company officials said. The AHRS sensors also drive a turn rate indicator and slip/skid ball. Included is an internal GPS receiver to display GPS ground speed, altitude, vertical speed, and ground track.

The D1 and D2 feature batteries that will last over four hours on a charge, and comes with two portable mounting options. The first is a RAM suction cup mount, and the second is 3⅛” portable “pinch” mount that allows the D1/D2 to be mounted in an empty existing instrument panel hole.

Accessories include an AC power adapter, a DC vehicle power adaptor, a RAM suction cup mount, 3⅛” portable “pinch” mount, internal Li-Ion battery, and external GPS antenna.

The D2 retails for $1,425, and the original D1 has a new lower price of $1,195.
