In simple we trust.

Zeus navigation systems are intuitive and easy to use. With 2 rotary switches and short/long press buttons you control the mastermind in your glider.

Effortless installation.

We use standard CAN BUS connectors for all devices. That means you can transfer power and data via single cable with every LX navigation device. Smart, right?

At LX navigation we believe that optional user customisation of our operating systems can deliver even better cockpit integration of the Zeus. That is why we have developed simple and effective display layout customisation for your personal requirements.

Top edge hardware and software. With the biggest display.

The complete software package was developed by the team with root air navigation knowledge. The system consists of a main unit with display, push buttons, rotary switches and a vario unit which can be fitted into any 57 mm or 80 mm standard instrument panel cut-out.
