Roger’s Runway: Portable Traffic For 396 & 496


Many of you rent airplanes from your local flight school and some of those planes need a serious panel upgrade.  Because some of the planes might be lacking a GPS on-board you have decided to pick up a Garmin portable unit.  I bet many of you wish you also had the ability to have traffic avoidance in the plane and your nights of wishing upon that star have finally been answered.  A company called Zaon Flight Systems has developed a Portable Collision Avoidance System or PCAS for your GPSMAP 396 and 496 called the XRX.  Using the TIS interface the PCAS XRX will send traffic information to the display on your 396 and 496 units.  The XRX is a passive system that has the ability to give you direction information of the target and can track up to 10 aircraft. The XRX will operate outside of the TIS covered areas providing you with traffic information for most of your trip.
