The LXNAV S8 (and the larger S80) are fast becoming firm favourites withing the gliding community. With airspace, waypoints, flarm display and task planning all built in as standard, the S8 really has almost everything you could need in one box. The AHRS option can be unlocked at any time by just purchasing the license. 

The LXNAV range of standalone varios provide the ideal system of connecting your Flarm and your Oudie and having all three devices sharing information with each other.  Use the GPS port to connect to your Flarm device and connect your Oudie or mobile phone using the PDA port - or upgrade to the Bluetooth option for wireless connectivity.

Please note - you must only use a single source of power for this setup. Connect only the S8 to your power source using the harness provided: your Flarm and Oudie will be both be powered by the S8. Please call us first if you have any doubts about how to wire in your S8.

The S8 fits into a standard 57mm instrument hole.
