Rockwell Collins has introduced Airshow 500—the first 3D moving map system for light business jets.
The new solution comes fully loaded with highly detailed worldwide maps and many other standard features, including passenger-selectable languages and settings adjustable anytime, anywhere.
The drop-in replacement for the Airshow 410 provides on-aircraft control of a wide variety of options and it is compatible with legacy monitors as well as newer widescreen monitors with digital inputs. Airshow 500 is also available in a flange mount option to meet any aircraft installation requirement.
Airshow 500 is also compatible with Rockwell Collins’ Airshow interactive app for the Apple iPad. Using an onboard wireless access point connected to the Airshow 500, passengers can take advantage of the app’s panorama view, which displays a moving map of the outside world from any direction the iPad is pointed, as well as interactive views including a user-controlled information ticker.
Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Flight Information Solutions says, “Airshow 500 brings unprecedented value to the light business jet market with its wide breadth of features, capability and visual quality.”
Airshow 500 will be available by the end of the year through Rockwell Collins-authorized dealers.
