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).
