Houston-based Frost Navratil Technical Solutions, maker of the ApproachView family of class-2 EFBs, has introduced a remote touchscreen display for use with the company’s P600 computer or a laptop. The new 8.4-in.-diagonal TD-840 display, said the company, is more compact than other EFBs that combine their displays with internal computer hardware. Frost also claims the TD-840 is twice as bright as the nearest competitor and is lighter than most other EFBs. Priced at $3,895, the 2.7-lb touch display may be operated with a stylus or the pilot’s finger, and can be operated in either portrait or landscape orientations. Operators may choose to connect two TD-840s to the same laptop computer to allow pilot and copilot to view the same chart. The unit can also interface with GPS to provide moving-map overlay on approach and en route charts.
