Default Flarmview versus Flarmview 57

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?

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.

I've had both, and settled with the Flarmview57. Fits in panel and I have had no issues reading the screen. I do wear glasses , no problems.

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.

I have been flying with the 57mm version for a number of years. I strictly use it for traffic awareness, nothing else. Readability is good.

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.

Default Flarmview versus Flarmview 57

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?

Default Flarmview versus Flarmview 57

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.
