Avidyne Corp. and Heads Up Technologies, Inc., now offer a new option to add XM music, news, sports and entertainment audio programming to both new and existing Avidyne EX500 multi-function displays (MFDs) with XM WX Satellite Weather datalink.
Featuring Heads Up Technologies’ XMC050 Bluetooth wireless remote control and display, the XM audio option lets pilots and passengers select from more than 170 channels while keeping the MFD free for vital flight operations.
To add XM Audio in a new EX500 installation, buyers must purchase a Heads Up XMD076A combination weather/radio receiver. To add XM audio to an existing EX500 with XM WX Satellite Weather, buyers must purchase a XMR050 radio receiver, which can be daisy-chained to the antenna-out port on previously installed XMD076 weather receivers.
Pricing for new installations: $5,120. Price to add to existing XM WX-only installations: $2,185. Antenna costs and XM service charges are additional.
