Dynon’s portable backup attitude indicator product line has added the D2, a unit with built-in Wi-Fi that can deliver data to compatible iPad apps and other devices. Dynon’s first portable backup D1 now costs $1,195, while the D2 retails for $1,425. The D2, with an integral attitude-heading reference system and GPS receiver, displays attitude, turn rate, slip/skid and GPS groundspeed, altitude, vertical speed and ground track. A second page on the D2 displays a G-meter. Compatible iPad apps can use the D2’s GPS-derived information, eliminating the need to rely on the iPad’s or an external GPS. The D2 works with WingX Pro 7, AOPA FlyQ, myWingMan, iHUD Remote and Air Navigation Pro. The one-inch-thick D2 measures about 3.5 inches square and has a four-hour lithium-ion battery and external GPS antenna.
