Xcom Avionics Com Radio Adds Serial Connectivity

Xcom's popular communications radios have gained the ability to accept serial channeling from an external GPS or EFIS. This feature allows the pilot to find and highlight a com frequency on the navigator and have it appear in the standby window of the Xcom radio.

The Xcom mounts in a 2.25-inch instrument hole. Also available is a remote head that can be used to channel control the radio; it's intended for use in tandem-seat aircraft.

The transmitter is rated at 6 watts, and the device includes a two-place voice-activated intercom. Retail price is $1395 (Australian) or approximately $1100 (US).
