Skymap ll and Skymap lllC
The Skymap family from
Bendix/King brings you the
precision of GPS moving map
navigation technology any time,
any place, anywhere. Each model
offers the convenience of a
compact, portable unit whilst
maintaining an inherent
installation capability. The
incredible mounting versatility of
these products allows for either
knee, yoke, gimbal, pedestal,
panel or rack mounting
The Skymap IIIC offers full screen color in a
slim, compact unit and its sister product
Skymap II now offers the same comprehensive
range of features but in a monochrome
version. Both products provide a full moving
map navigation platform with full autopilot
interface capability through our AIM (Aviation
Interface Module) unit,
and for those who already
have a GPS or Loran
receiver, our Tracker
products offer a repeater
equivalent to the IIIC and
II units.
Both products offer worldwide Jeppesen® data coverage, extensive user
defined waypoint storage and flight planning
abilities. Together with our Flight Manager
software package you can download the
weather, notes, plan your trip and upload your
route from PC.
The Skymap series boasts an impressive range
of features to help you plan and calculate your
journey including simplified joystick data entry
and point interrogation, split screen navigation
modes, trip/fuel planning, vertical navigation,
wind calculation, note pad function, auto zoom,
emergency search, emergency airfield
minimum criteria and map customisation.
Dual parallel processing ensures that the
zooming function, joystick panning, displayed
cartography and overlaid navigation capability
are completely seamless. Simply point at your
desired destination, hit DIRECT TO and you
are on track. All these features combined with
simple on-screen help and soft key operating
system, make the Skymap series the very best
that Moving Map technology has to offer.

Accessory Listing
SkyData Modules
Skymap and Tracker products can be updated
with an interchangeable plug-in SkyData
Module. Our series of modules enables any
unit to be used anywhere in the world. The
SkyData Module is unique as it holds the
Jeppesen® aeronautical and Bendix/King
geographic database as well as the operating
system software. Continuous enhancement
means we can pass on new features to our
customers. Database updates (Jeppesen® and
geographic data) and feature upgrades
(operating software enhancements) are
available by exchanging your existing module
on a one off or subscription basis.

Skymap II data is stored in a module, which comprises a pair
of programmable EPROMS; the Skymap IIIC has a PCMCIA
flash memory card, both types can be erased and
reprogrammed. Blank data cards for Jeppesen® database
exchanges are available in either blank or pre loaded formats.
Use your Bendix/King unit in either Portrait Standard or
Portrait Inverse modes with this mount. The click attachment
makes for a semi-permanent fit within the aircraft.
Panel Mount
Simple to fit, this mount is suitable for any flat section of the
aircraft instrument panel. An integral power/SMB connector
(as shown in the photo) is available as an optional extra and is
ideal for permanent installations.
Gimbal Mount
Ideally suited for helicopter applications, this mount can be
secured on top of the centre console or binnacle and includes
an adjustable angle feature.
Rack Mount
Designed for your Bendix/King unit to be fitted into a standard
radio stack, this mount provides the benefits of a fully installed
system with the flexibility to remove your unit at will through
the ‘push and release’ mechanism.
Pedestal Mount
The design of this mount offers complete flexibility in
adjusting the unit in all three dimensions for optimum viewing.
It can be installed on the top or sides of your aircraft
console/binnacle or on the roof.
In some circumstances a user may wish to have a permanent
installation, particularly if their Skymap unit is properly
installed in the aircraft. We can provide a suitable white
external low profile antenna complete with the necessary
interface co-axial cables to match the installation.
Cables & Power Adapter/Chargers
Additional leads could include a PC interface cable or
2m antenna extension cable to name a few. Alternatively, you
may require a Power Adapter/Charger. These can be supplied
with plugs to suit most common European, UK and USA
socket standards. These Power Adapter/Chargers are
specifically designed to match the changing requirements of
rechargeables in Skymap II or Tracker II units.
