Touch-Screen Navigators
As the heart of your ADS-B system,
Avidyne’s IFD Series features
the most intuitive Flight
Management System in an
easy-to-use, yet powerful design.
Where innovation meets simplicity
The Easy Choice
Direct Replacements
Avidyne’s IFD Series of touch screen navigators represent the
next generation in flight management systems. Each provides
SBAS/LPV precision navigation and are designed to meet the
accuracy and integrity requirements for ADS-B as part of the
NextGen airspace initiative. As direct replacements for legacy
systems, the IFDs each share the same basic functionality in
large and compact display formats respectively.
The IFDs are direct replacements for popular Garmin GNS Series
Navigators. In most cases, the IFDs can utilize the existing tray
and connectors, and are compatible with all the popular interface
configurations, which can greatly minimize installation costs.
Hybrid Touch:
Knobs & Buttons or Touch-Screen
When it comes to panel-mounted
avionics, you now have a choice
and the choice is easy. Avidyne.
Shown left, from top to bottom:
AMX240 Audio Panel, IFD540,
IFD440, AXP340 Transponder,
DFC90 Digital Autopilot.
The award-winning Page & Tab user interface eliminates
nested menus, allowing you to go to any page in the system
with only one or two clicks.
In addition to the dedicated knobs and buttons that many
pilots prefer for frequent pilot actions, the IFDs Hybrid Touch
capability allows pilots to perform virtually all of those same
functions via the touch screen interface. Additionally, the IFDs
offer MultiTouch functionalities such as pinch-zoom, map
panning, and graphical flight plan editing. This can be done
with the MultiTouch screen, or knobs and buttons depending
on the pilot’s phase of flight.
Made by Pilots for Pilots
Avidyne’s full line of IFDs were designed for ease-of-use, especially during single-pilot IFR operations.
As avid and enthusiastic pilots, the people at Avidyne understand the importance of workload reduction
and simplicity of operation.
Made for
Each Other
Built on a dual databus architecture,
the IFD Navigators are key
components in Avidyne’s
panel-mounted avionics suite,
which also includes the AMX240
Audio Panel, AXP340 ADS-B Mode
S Transponder, and DFC90 Digital
IFD540 shown with Synthetic Vision in
“exocentric” view. See page 8 for more
information on Synthetic Vision.
Navigation at your fingertips
Get where you need to go. That’s why we fly. Avidyne wants you to keep your head up when flying with your family and loved ones.
That s the reason Avidyne designed their FMS to be as user
friendly as possible. Go where you need to go in two clicks or less.

Easy Flight Planning
FMS Preview
Extensive testing and customer experience have proven that
the IFD user interface reduces button pushes and knob twists
required with previous navigators by 50%-75% or more. Dropdown menus are logically placed to provide easy data entry of
airways, exit waypoints, destinations, and approach procedures.
To make planning even easier, the IFDs can automatically create
user-defined waypoints.
Avidyne’s exclusive FMS Preview is a powerful flight planning
feature that makes it even more intuitive to load flight plans by
showing you a real-time graphical depiction of each proposed
modification in cyan prior to selection. FMS Preview makes it
easy to visualize before selecting a desired waypoint, airway,
hold or hold geometry, Direct-To, approach, approach transition
and any other terminal procedures.
Graphical flight planning capability allows for
easy editing of your flight plan with the touch
of the screen. The convenient ‘rubber banding’
feature allows you to stretch any leg in the
flight plan to easily deviate for weather or to
accommodate an amendment from ATC.
FMS Preview also allows you to view each of the available
approaches graphically prior to selection. Unlike previousgeneration navigators, the Avidyne IFDs allow you to
quickly load any number of destination airports and multiple
approaches into your flight plan.
Working Well Together
The IFDs, when paired in any combination, leverage Avidyne’s
Byteflight databus architecture for cross-communication.
A Keyboard Convenience feature allows for data entry onn a
familiar QWERTY keyboard that automatically appears when an alphahanumeric data field is highlighted, making data entry as familiarr to
you as your computer or smart phone.
In dual installations, the dual-databus architecture allows pilots
to enter the flightplan on the QWERTY keyboard of one unit, while
viewing the Map on the other.
GeoFill™ intelligently predicts the next waypoint entry, not based
on its order in the database, but on its proximity to your current
location or the previous waypoint in your flight plan. The IFDs
autofill the remaining characters in the entry based upon distance
from the current position, avoiding the cumbersome need to go
through “bad” choices to get to the desired entry—dramatically
reduces the number of pilot actions. GeoFill can reduce data
entry by as much as 75%, reducing head-down time, and ultimately
increasing efficiency and safety.
Entering a Hold
xt L
eg” Depiction
You can easily enter and fly a Hold at any waypoint, including
VORs, intersections, user-defined waypoints, airports, etc. The FMS
will default to a standard hold pattern at current heading, and all
parameters are easily editable.
On the ma
ap, thee cu
rrent legg yo
yyouu are flyi
ng is always depicted
depicted as a
solid magenta line. To give you a clear indication of your next leg,
the IFDs will display a magenta & white “candy cane” line, which is
especially handy during entries into a holding pattern.
The IFDs also support
holding patterns.
Communications & Enhancements
Managing Radios
Managing your radios is easy with the IFD550, 540, and 440.
Frequencies can easily be entered either by rotating the dual
knobs on the left, or by using the touch-screen numeric keypad.
COM frequencies can also be tuned directly by touching the
displayed frequencies on Info, Nearest, and Frequency List
pages. You can also simultaneously tune both the active and
standby frequencies, both of which can be easily monitored
when coupled with Avidyne’s AMX240 Audio Panel.
The IFD’s powerful FMS automatically nominates, auto-tunes,
identifies, and monitors the NAV radio frequencies, so you may
never have to tune another VOR or ILS frequency again! Should
you choose to do so, manual tuning is easily completed with
the pop-up numeric key pad or by simply typing the identifier
for the VOR.
Low-Fuel Alerting
When the IFD is connected to a compatible Fuel Totalizer
System, the IFD will display a dashed green circle, indicating a
fuel reserve of 45 minutes. A green Fuel Range Ring indicates a
maximum range without reserve.
Multiple Frequency Formats
& Station Readout
Communications are greatly improved with the IFDs. You can
configure your unit(s) to have multiple standby frequencies,
decoded agency identifiers, and Rx/Tx Indicators.
The IFDs decode the active and standby frequencies based on
proximity in the database and display the names of the stations
in plain English, providing a handy reminder of the agency to
which you will be transmitting when pressing the push-to-talk
Electronic Approach Charts
& Airport Diagrams
The IFD5-Series includes CMax™ Approach Charts & Airport
Diagrams. Utilizing Jeppesen’s Jeppview® charts subscription
services, CMax provides Worldwide approach charts and a
database of over 6,000 airport diagrams, most of which are
geo-referenced, allowing for the display of your ownship
and flight plan position right on the chart or airport diagram.
IFD5-Series also supports optional European VFR (Bottlang)
Charts for over 2,200 airports in 29 European countries.
Easy Radio Tuning
Touching any frequency in the Info list,
Freq page, or Nearest page automatically
transfers it into the Standby window.
Terrain Awareness
All IFD systems offer Terrain Awareness
capability which can be displayed over the
color-contoured terrain base map for easy
pilot recognition of an imminent encounter
with nearby terrain.
For an even greater measure of safety,
Forward Looking Terrain Alerting (FLTA)
actively projects the aircraft’s flight track in
time to determine whether a collision with
terrain or obstacles is imminent. Caution
Alerts are provided when a collision with
terrain is projected within approximately 60
seconds, and Warning Alerts are provided for
terrain projected within approximately 30
(FLTA is optional on IFD440 and IFD410)
Synthetic Vision
IFD540 shown above in actual size features “exocentric” (in-trail) synthetic vision.
Avidyne’s Got You Covered
All IFDs are equipped with Avidyne’s beautiful Synthetic Vision
(SVS) for improved situational awareness. SVS is fully integrated
and requires no additional boxes or wires.
3D Terrain - Terrain Awareness (SVS-TA) is provided via
terrain coloration, providing visual Caution-Warning Alerting
System (CAS) alerts and aural alerts terrain hazard awareness and
FLTA- Forward Looking Terrain Alerting (FLTA) alerting provides
an extra measure of safety by displaying a solid yellow or red
impact point based on projected flight path in the event that a
collision with terrain is projected. FLTA also provides visual CAS
messaging & aural alerting.
3D Obstacles - Standard high, low and grouping symbology is
used to clearly depict obstacles on the SVS display.
3D Traffic uses standard traffic symbology with traffic
depictions indicating relative threat level by their size and
relative altitude and bearing. As traffic draws nearer to you, the
traffic symbols grow in size on the IFD.
Airport Flags – Airfields are depicted with a METAR-style flag
when in field of view. With valid METAR data from your datalink,
airfield flags will be color-coded to represent the ceiling and
visibility, consistent with the moving map presentation.
The Premier Navigator
Avidyne’s IFD550 is a state-of-the-art, hybrid touch-screen Flight Management System with Synthetic Vision, designed for virtually
any aircraft.
IFD550 shown above in actual size features “egocentric” (out-the-window) synthetic vision.
Actual size.
The Premium IFD: IFD550
With the new top-of-the line IFD550, Avidyne combines the
latest in touchscreen, WAAS/SBAS GPS/VHF navigation and
communication along with stunning 3D synthetic vision
technology to deliver the most powerful and capable touchscreen, panel-mounted navigator ever made.
The IFD550 has all the features and functionality of the
other IFD FMS systems, including Hybrid Touch, Page & Tab user
interface, GeoFill automatic waypoint nomination, and
easy Airway flight planning. The difference is an added
integrated Attitude Reference System (ARS) that detects
changes in pitch & roll. The IFD550 also provides stunning fullcolor, three-dimensional “egocentric” Synthetic Vision along with
“exocentric” (in-trail) SVS.
At the heart of the IFD550’s synthetic vision
system, is Avidyne’s fully-integrated, nextgeneration MEMS-Gyro ARS sensor that
senses pitch & roll.
IFD100 - an iPad® app, an additional IFD
Big Glass for Any Aircraft
The IFDs are the only GPS Navigators in GA offering both
built-in Bluetooth® and Wifi. With that, all IFDs offer a Wifi
connection to Apple iPads with the Avidyne IFD100 iPad app.
This app does not just mirror the functions of your IFD, but acts
as an additional instance of an IFD, where you can edit your
flight plan, monitor your map for ADS-B weather & traffic (with
the Avidyne SkyTrax100 ADS-B In solution), and view pages
independently. Even if you have the smaller-glass IFD4-Series,
your IFD100 display will provide big glass capabilities at a
fraction of the cost.
The IFD100 can also be shown in portrait mode, suitable for a
knee board (shown right).
More Wireless Connectivity
Avidyne’s IFD100 tablet application
gives pilots a full display and complete
wireless remote control of their
panel-mounted IFD System.
The Avidyne MK10 wireless keyboard
provides a convenient way for pilots to
remotely control their IFD System.
