The Easy Choice

The IFD540 & IFD440 represent the next generation in FMS/GPS/ NAV/COM systems. Each provides VHF communication and SBAS/ LPV precision navigation and are designed to meet the accuracy and integrity requirements for ADS-B as part of the NextGen airspace initiative. As plug-and play replacements for legacy systems, the IFD540 & IFD440 each share the same basic functionality in large and compact display formats respectively.

When it comes to panel-mounted avionics, you now have a choice and the choice is easy. Avidyne.

Hybrid Touch: Knobs & Buttons or Touch-Screen

Our award-winning Page & Tab user interface allows you to go to any page in the system with only one or two clicks.

In addition to the dedicated knobs and buttons that many pilots prefer for frequent pilot actions, the IFD540 & IFD440’s Hybrid Touch capability allows pilots to perform virtually all of those same functions via the touch-screen interface, as well as providing additional MultiTouch functionality like pinch-zoom, map panning, and graphical flight plan editing, allowing the pilot to decide to use the MultiTouch screen, or knobs and buttons depending on the pilot’s phase of flight.

Avidyne’s unique Hybrid Touch user interface eliminates nested menus and allows pilots to view any page with only one or two clicks.

Made by Pilots for Pilots

The IFD540 & IFD440 were designed for ease of use, especially during single-pilot IFR operations. As avid and enthusiastic pilots, we at Avidyne understand the importance of workload reduction and simplicity of operation.

The IFD540 & IFD440 provide an easy page & tab user interface, plus advanced radio management including automated NAV frequency tuning and COM frequency nomination, automatic frequency identification, easy-to-modify graphical flight planning, and Avidyne’s exclusive GeoFill™ waypoint nomination.


Avidyne’s IFD-Series FMS/GPS/NAV/COMs combine the best Flight Management System available, with multi-channel digital VHF radios, and easy-to-use, plug & play designs.

Flight Planning Has Never Been Easier

Entering an IFR flight plan is easier than ever with the IFD540 & IFD440. Extensive testing and customer experience have proven that the IFD540 & IFD440 user interface reduces button pushes and knob twists required with previous navigators by 50%-75% or more. Drop-down menus are logically placed to provide easy data entry of airways, exit waypoints, destinations, and approach procedures.

Graphical Flight Plan Editing

IFD540 RubberbandingWith the IFD540 & IFD440’s graphical flight planning capability, you can easily edit your flight plan with the touch of the screen. The ‘rubber banding’ feature allows you to stretch any leg in the flight plan to make a deviation for weather or to accommodate an amendment from ATC.

GeoFill™ Reduces Data Entry Time

GeoFill intelligently predicts the next leg or waypoint on your flight—not based on its order in the database, but on its proximity to your current location or the previous waypoint in your flight plan—eliminating the fumbling through irrelevant NAVAIDs common to other systems. Auto-fi lling the remaining characters in the entry—based upon distance from the current position and avoiding the cumbersome need to go through obviously “bad” choices (too far away) to get to the desired entry—dramatically reduces the number of pilot actions. GeoFill can reduce data entry by as much as 75%, dramatically reducing head-down time.

FMS Preview

IFD540 FMS Preview

Avidyne’s exclusive FMS Preview™ is a powerful flight planning feature that makes it even more intuitive to load flight plans by showing you a real-time graphical depiction of each proposed modification in cyan prior to selection. FMS Preview makes it easy to visualize before selecting a desired waypoint, airway, hold or hold geometry, Direct-To, approach, approach transition and any other terminal procedures.

Easy Loading of Approaches

IFD540 Loading and Approach

The dedicated PROC (Procedure) button allows you to quickly load approaches at your destination airport by selecting from the intuitive pop-up list on the map. FMS Preview allows you to view each of the available approaches graphically prior to selection. Unlike previous-generation navigators, the IFD540 & IFD440 allow you to quickly load any number of destination airports and multiple approaches into your flight plan.

Entering a Hold is Easy

You can easily enter and fly a Hold at any waypoint, including VORs, intersections, user-defined waypoints, airports, etc. The FMS will default to a standard hold pattern at current Heading, and all parameters are easily editable.

Quick Access to Info You Need

The IFDs feature a convenient Side Tab, so you can quickly view your Data page, Flightplan, or Nearest Airports while viewing the Map.

IFD540 side panel tab

While in FMS mode, you can access your MAP any time simply by clicking or
dragging the side tab.


Managing your radios is easy with the IFD540 & IFD440. Frequencies can easily be entered either by rotating the dual knobs on the left, or by using the touch-screen numeric keypad. COM frequencies can also be tuned directly by touching the displayed frequencies on Info, Nearest, and Frequency List pages.

IFD540 & IFD440’s powerful FMS automatically nominates, auto-tunes, identifies, and monitors the NAV radio frequencies, so you may never have to tune another VOR or ILS frequency again! Should you choose to do so, manual tuning is easily completed with the pop-up numeric key pad or by simply typing the identifier for the VOR

Easy Radio Tuning

Touching any frequency in the Info list, Freq page, or Nearest page automatically transfers it into the Standby window.

Multiple Frequency Formats and Station Readout

Communications are greatly improved with the IFDs. You can configure your unit(s) to have multiple standby frequencies, decoded agency identifiers, and Rx/Tx Indicators.

IFD540 frequencies

The IFD540 & IFD440 decode the active and standby frequencies based on proximity in the database and display the names of the stations in plain English, providing a handy reminder of the agency to which you will be transmitting when pressing the push-to-talk button.

Low-Fuel Protection

IFD540 fuel range ring

When the IFD is connected to a compatible Fuel Totalizer System, the IFD will display a green Fuel Range Ring, indicating a fuel reserve of 45 minutes. A dashed green circle indicates a maximum range without reserve.
