Avidyne Unveils Multi-Touch Functionality for IFD540 Touch-Screen FMS/GPS/NAV/COM

Avidyne Corporation, a leading provider of integrated avionics and safety systems for general aviation aircraft, today announced that Multi-Touch capability will be included with their recently-announced IFD540 GPS/ Navigation/ Communication system. Multi-Touch allows pilots to gesture using two or more fingers on the capacitive touch screen to easily scroll and zoom the map range setting in and out. The IFD540 with Multi-Touch will be on display in the Avidyne booth (#1120) at AOPA Summit this week in Hartford, Conn. "In addition to all the great features we announced at the introduction of the IFD540, Multi-Touch is one of the 'additional capabilities' we said that we would be rolling out over the next several months," said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne's Chief Operating Officer. "The plug-and-play IFD540 is getting rave reviews for its innovation and ease of use, and Multi-Touch makes the user interface even easier for pilots." "The IFD540 is the result of significant investments in technology and years of innovation at Avidyne, and customers will really appreciate its ease of use and pilot-centric operation," said Dan Schwinn, Avidyne's President and CEO. "Multi-Touch is just one example of the many cool features that set the IFD540 apart from what is currently available in the market. Stay tuned for more."
