V80 and S80 Varios

The V80 iis an 80 mm unit that can be connected to the LX 8000 / 9000 family of computers.  The S80 can be installed as a standalone variometer.  It features a MEMS inertial platform and pressure sensors allowing a built in AHRS and fast wind calculations. Now  Available!




V9 Vario 

The V9 vario replaced the V5 vario delivered with the LX 9000, 8000 and 8080

The V9 variometer includes a new suite of sensors (two pressure sensors, a three-axis accelerometer and three-axis gyro), an upgraded main processor (Cortex M4), and a new 16 bit audio with much a more powerful output.  The new sensor suite now allows for a complete artificial horizon capability inside the V9.


LX Nav produces the LX 90xx, LX 80xx, S80, S8, V80, V9, V8, S7, V5, S3 Nano, Nano3 and Flarmview.

CLUB and SIMPLE versions of the 9050, 8000 and 8080 are also available at reduced prices

Click on the menu items to the left for specific details and prices.

For flarm users, the new V9 colour vario can be set so that it displays the standard flarm "clock" when alarms are received from the flarm.  This display on the vario is in addition to the flarm "radar" that is displayed on the main map screen.

With this additional functionality, there is no need for an external flarm display, the LX does it all!
