Hybrid Touch: Knobs & Buttons or Touch-Screen
Our award-winning Page & Tab user interface allows 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 IFD540’s Hybrid Touch capability allows pilots to perform virtually all of those same functions via the touch-screen interface, as well as providing additional MultiTouch functionality like pinch-zoom, map panning, and graphical flight plan editing, allowing the pilot to decide to use the MultiTouch screen, or knobs and buttons depending on the pilot’s phase of flight.
Avidyne’s unique Hybrid Touch user interface eliminates nested menus and allows pilots to view any page with only one or two clicks.
