About

"I have been using the Zeus in my glider for 6 years. 4 years ago I added the EOS, which I soon replaced with the ERA. I find the combination of stand-alone vario with backup battery and backup navigation in conjunction with the large moving map on the Zeus incredibly useful, helpful and solid. The Zeus is easy to use with the permanently labelled buttons and forms a robust system with the ERA. The Colibri II automatic declaration makes it easy to prepare for large flights and saves time early in the morning. With the Colibri II and the ERA, I always have two Level 1 loggers with identical declarations on board, which is important for record flights. In addition, the connection of the FLARM to the ZEUS is reliable and the FLARM can also be declared. The PowerFLARM runs as a completely decoupled backup navigation system, which displays the current position on the LX Traffic Monitor and its moving map."

Zeus vario-navigation system

Zeus navigation systems are intuitive and easy to use. With 2 rotary switches and short/long press buttons you control the greatest asset in your cockpit. You can use LX CAN BUS connectors for all devices. That means you can transfer power and data via single cable to every LX navigation device. Smart, right?
