Jeppesen teams with Avidyne to bundle data and charts

Jeppesen and Avidyne have introduced new Jeppesen Services Suite for IFD540 bundled data packages, featuring Jeppesen’s navigation information and charting data. The new data service is designed to support Avidyne avionics systems within a single aircraft, centered on IFD540 FMS/GPS/NAV/COM avionics.

The new bundle services allow general aviation pilots to manage a single subscription to update multiple Avidyne avionics systems within their aircraft. Avidyne systems in the bundle include the IFD540 and EX series (EX500, 600 and 5000). When available, the IFD440 will also be included in the service plan.

The bundled, single aircraft pricing structure data package provides customers with a pricing discount, when compared to purchasing data subscriptions individually, according to company officials. Jeppesen Services Suite for IFD540 customers will receive up to a 76% savings compared to purchasing all available individual subscriptions for their Avidyne equipped aircraft.

Jeppesen’s navigation data is included in the bundled service, including Jeppesen NavData, obstacle data, terrain data and charts.

Three bundled service options are available — Jeppesen Services Suite for IFD540, Jeppesen Services Suite Plus IFR for IFD540 and Jeppesen Services Suite Plus VFR for IFD540, depending on customer requirements.

“Our continued spirit of teamwork with Avidyne made this collaboration possible and our new bundled data service provides general aviation pilots with a new choice for integrated cockpit data, available at a discounted subscription rate,” said Scott Reagan, director, Jeppesen OEM Client Management. “The ‘one-stop-shop’ experience related to database updates and technical support will enhance the flying experience for Jeppesen and Avidyne customers using IFD540 and EX series avionics.”
