XM WEATHER INTEGRATED INTO THE APPROACH APIC GLASS COCKPIT S/W
OREM, Utah, Jan 21, 2022 — Approach Systems Inc.,
creators of the innovative Plug & Play “Fast Stack” Hub and
Cable System and APIC (APproach Integrated Cockpit) glass cockpit software just
released the latest in satellite information technology. In conjunction with
WxWorx, XM weather information is now available on APIC with realtime weather
on the moving map.
APIC/Weather is now a standard element of the APIC S/W package. Existing customers are automatically upgraded with this month’s next 28 day update (Jan. 20, 2005).
“XM Weather is the obvious solution to in-flight realtime weather”, says Kieth Sorenson, President, “Weather is now available to APIC customers for just the cost of the XM Weather receiver and a monthly subscription.”
APIC is an extensible glass cockpit software package that integrates all PFD, MFD, Terrain, Weather and Engine functionality in a single software product. APIC works with all Windows Mobile 2002 & 2003 based PDA’s, Windows XP tablets and embedded XP panel-mounted displays.
The moving map, MFD and PFD software from Approach sells for $249 regardless of the platform. Adding hardware completes the configuration to each customer’s requirements. The distributed architecture allows APIC to match the display (i.e. PDA, Tablet or Panel mounted system) with as little as a GPS or a complete set of engine sensors. A customer can start with a PDA and migrate to larger displays to fit their needs and comfort with as they get used to “Glass Cockpit” technology without having to replace sensors or other hardware.
