Robinson has added Avidyne's IFD 400 series touchscreen GPS navigators to its R22, R44 and R66 avionics options.

The 400 series has a 4.8-inch display and may be operated by either touchscreen or buttons and knobs, which allows the IFD to be installed in the helicopter's lower centre console or in the pilot side console. Wi-fi, for interfacing with an iPad, and Synthetic Vision are standard.

When used in conjunction with Avidyne's IFD100 app, an iPad may mirror the IFD display or may serve as an independent display capable of controlling the IFD. The IFD100 app is free and available on the Apple App Store.
