DYNON ANNOUNCES NEW D2 POCKET PANEL PORTABLE EFIS, NEW LOWER D1 PRICE
Woodinville, WA, OCTOBER 7th, 2013 – Dynon introduces the D2, a second model to the Pocket Panel product line, the true attitude indicators that can be used by ALL pilots. The new D2 adds Wi-Fi connectivity to allow flight data to be sent to popular iPad, smart phone, and tablet aviation applications, and has a second screen with a G-Meter. The D2 retails for $1,425, and the original D1 has a new lower price of $1,195.
Wi-Fi connectivity allows attitude and GPS ground speed, altitude, G’s, 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. Compatible applications include the WingX Pro7, AOPA FlyQ, BendixKing myWingMan, iHUD Remote, and Air Navigation Pro.
The D2’s second page G-Meter shows a graphical round dial with the current load factor shown by a needle, plus it records the minimum and maximum G’s since being last reset by the pilot.
The D1 and D2 both utilize the same Dynon MEMS-based AHRS technology that has made Dynon the leading supplier of EFIS (Electronic Flight Information Systems) in experimental and Light Sport Aircraft. Both products are true artificial horizons with accurate pitch and roll, and can find the horizon even if turned on in flight. 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.
At only 3½” wide, 3¼” high, and 1” thick, the D1 and D2 are truly portable. They 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 3 ⅛” portable “pinch” mount that allows the D1/D2 to be easily mounted in an empty existing instrument panel hole.
Accessories included with the D1 and D2 are an AC power adapter, a DC vehicle power adaptor, a RAM® suction cup mount, 3 ⅛” portable “pinch” mount, internal Li-Ion battery, and external GPS antenna.
D2 Pocket Panels will be available starting October 6th, 2013, directly from Dynon and through Dynon authorized dealers. Aircraft Spruce and Pacific Coast will have D2s for sell at the AOPA Summit in Ft. Worth Texas, or come by Dynon Booth 1732 to experience the D2 first hand.
