[Avionics Magazine 07-25-2016] Avidyne is currently developing software releases that will add Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) compatibility for their Entegra Release 9 (R9) Integrated Flight Deck (IFD) and also for the EX-Series Multi-function Displays (MFD).

The first, release, 9.4, aims to add support for Avidyne’s AXP322 remote-mount transponder for ADS-B Out, and compatibility with Avidyne’s SkyTrax100 receiver for ADS-B In. In addition, this release adds support for vertical guidance for GPS approaches, such as Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV), and also enables the Take Off/Go Around (TOGA) feature for R9-equipped Cirrus aircraft that have the DFC100 autopilot.
Also, release 8.2 enables the display of ADS-B In traffic and subscription-free Flight Information Services-Broadcast (FIS-B) Wx on Avidyne’s EX500, EX600 and EX5000 Series Multi-Function Displays (MFDs) using Avidyne SkyTrax100 receiver or SkyTrax200/210 transceivers.
