AvMap Ultra EFIS now available! The European launch at the Flying Show 2013 in Birmingham

AvMap Ultra provides reliable and advanced ADAHRS, in an ultra compact and ultra light device!


November 15th, 2013: AvMap, the Italian manufacturer of GPS since 1994, presents at the Birmingham Flying Show (November 30th – December 1st) the AvMap Ultra, a stand alone unit providing Air data, Attitude, Altitude and Heading Reference for your flight.
AvMap Ultra features a 3.5” ultra bright, sunlight readable LCD display, it is compact (only 1.95” /49.5 mm installing depth) and ultra light (only 5.1 oz / 145 g, while the market average stands around 1 lb 9oz / 700 g).

Fitting in a 84 mm (3.3”) panel hole, the AvMap Ultra can be easily installed in your panel and be connected to the external GPS receiver (included) and to the aircraft Pitot-static system to provide reliable and advanced ADAHRS.

Designed for light-sport, ultra light and experimental aircraft, the AvMap Ultra contains solid-state gyros, accelerometers, magnetic field sensors, air data sensors and UAV Navigation motion processor that make it the most compact, reliable and complete EFIS of its type. Moreover, AvMap Ultra is virtually temperature-insensitive as it operating range goes from -20°C to +80°C!

The AvMap Ultra also provides navigation back-up: in the HSI screen you can select from the preloaded Jeppesen Database an Airport (ARPT), VOR and NDB as your navigation point.
AvMap Ultra can display on the 3,5” LCD two different pages: PFD e HSI (pages can be easily changed by using the rotor knob).

Ultra EFIS PFD screen displays:

  • Attitude (roll, pitch and heading)

  • Airspeed from Pitot-static system

  • Altitude from Pitot-static system

  • Side Slip

  • Vertical Speed

  • G-meter

  • Compass

The Ultra EFIS HSI Screen displays: current position, heading, distance, directions, radials relative to reference navigation points and approximate wind data. The Ultra EFIS contains an internal world magnetic model that allows it to calculate the local magnetic deviation and  dip. The Ultra EFIS can calculate, current position and ground speed even in the absence of GPS, with degraded quality.

AvMap products range is extending beyond navigation to include more and more avionic tools with the objective to provide a complete AvMap Glass Cockpit system” added Simone Lazzarini, CEO at AvMap

Retail Prices: The Ultra EFIS will be on sale starting this December at €1199

About AvMap
AvMap was established in Italy in 1994 within the C-MAP group, the world leader in electronic chart technology. AvMap made its debut in the aeronautical market with the EKP (electronic kneepad), one of the most successful flight navigation systems sold worldwide. AvMap transferred its electronic cartography expertise from the aeronautical to the terrestrial sector, becoming a leader in satellite navigation solutions and fleet tracking systems. AvMap products are 100% Made in Italy since 1994 and used by private pilots as well as by Armed forces, Governmental agencies, rescue teams, Civil Defense.
In 1994, AvMap pioneered the sector of GPS portable solutions dedicated to car navigation, launching the ‘Desert Cruiser’ followed by ‘Road Cruiser’ and the Geosat series. In 2007 the AvMap’ Automotive B2B unit develops new super smart semi - integrated solutions which satisfy the high quality standards of the automotive industry. AvMap’s partners include PSA Group (Peugeot and Citroen), Toyota, Mitsubishi Motor Company Brazil and many others.
