Default Flarmview versus Flarmview 57

Dave,

When saying "Traffic Monitor" are you referring to the new LXNav "TrafficView" (TV)?

I have the TrafficView 57 now and did have the FlarmView 57 before. The TrafficView is brighter.

Thanks, John

Oops, yes. I've seen it described as "the ideal Traffic Monitor", but
the real name is TrafficView.

I think you're a bit confused. The Flarmview and Flarmview 57 are very
similar products, with the same display. Matt was talking about Traffic
Monitor in the 57 mm version, which has a much brighter display made
with LED's. It would be non-polarized, so you can wear polarized
sunglasses with it. Hopefully with a better UI than what's on the FV
products.

I've been considering the 80 mm version of TM, but will probably spring
for the S80 Club to pick up variometer functions on a similar traffic
display.

Looking at the specs for the Flarmview and the FV57 I see that they have
the same pixel count.* So what makes one better over the other?

I'm interested in purchasing a Flarmcore soon and I'm curious which
of the displays would work best.* I have a spare 57mm hole in the
panel now, so the Flarmview 57 seems to be the simplest
installation.* I'm curious if having the extra buttons on the
original Flarmview make this device easier to use in flight.

Thoughts?

I jus flew for a week with the new LXNAV traffic monitor, and that's
what I would recommend.* Flarmview and flarmview 57 have the same
size screen.* I came to hate my Flarmview and it's interface.

Was that the 57 or 80 mm version of Traffic Monitor that you were using?
57mm.* And yes, they need t work on making certain parameters bigger
and bolder for the57mm version.* But all n all, way better than the
flarmview.



The S80 has similar display to flarmview, not to TrafficView, unless they changed it recently?

It's a confusing product line. The Flarmview I bought 4-5 years ago has
an LCD display, very glossy, and polarized. What they're currently
selling as Flarmview has four buttons and a rocker, and a simplified
display that's described as a 2" Retina display. Plus they offer a
FlarmLED and FlarmLED+, and of course the Flarmview 2 for people who
want a flight computer on a postage stamp.

I believe the current S80 has a bright, LED display, which would be
comparable to TrafficView in terms of visibility. Both a big step above
the old Flarmview I have.

There are variety of Flarm Displays the new LXNAV TrafficView is an big improvement over the Flarmview. The LXANV TrafficView also includes navigation.

Air-Avionics also has a very nice display.

These two options appear to be newer and improved options for a PowerFlarm display : LxNav TrafficView and ATD-57. Does anyone have an opinion on which would perform better? Thanks for all the responses thus far.

Yes the display quality is indeed better in the S80 but the graphics and functionality is very similar to flarmview. I believe the new trafficview has a completely different and more intuitive graphic display.

Both the LXNAV TrafficView & the Air-Avionics ATD-57 are similar and a big improvement in visibility and the way the targets are displayed. The TrafficView also has a navigation function.

Will either of them display targets from an adsb-in receiver, such as the Scout?

Scout is a ADS-B in receiver so I don't believe it transmits. SO no they will not display targets from Scout..

They will show the same targets that Scout receives.

I have a trafficview, any my only complaint is the text is so small (on the 57mm version) that it is difficult to read relative altitude, climb rate, etc. Make it bigger and bolder please, LX!
