LX Navigation Zeus 2.8

Size and Power Consumption

"A vario navigation system which can be fitted into a standard 80 mm cut out"

LX Zeus 2.8 uses a high quality 2.8 inch diagonal colour display with a resolution of 240x320 pixels. The size of the display has enabled the design of a unit which retains all the excellent features of the bigger LX Zeus but doesn't require an upgrade of the instrument panel. The operation and commands are identical to all other Zeus units comprising two rotary switches and eight push buttons. Operation is intuitive and the processor is very fast

Upgrades of other LX Navigation units beginning with LX 7000 are possible without significant change of cable sets. The vario unit used is the EOS.
