Compelling New Choice for Updating Your Aircraft Center Stack

July 15, 2022 – Trig announced the certification and immediate availability of a great new slimline NAV/COM, the Trig TX56A / TX57A. This very capable system was designed to replace legacy products, such as the Bendix King KX155 or Garmin SL30 models, and is part of a full, space-efficient center stack line-up from Trig.

This is an important milestone, as the TX56 Nav/Com completes the Trig stack product line. The TX56 is a slimline unit, at only 33mm high this makes it easier to install, saving valuable space in any avionics stack.

Trig CEO Andy Davis said, “Trig’s Nav/Com product family has landed. Customers can now order their Nav/Com from our Approved Trig Dealers. We know customers are excited by the TX56’s space saving form factor and its compelling list of pilot friendly features.”

A Closer Look

The TX56 uses a bright high-resolution display, with the clearest presentation of Nav and Com information. The unit has a customisable frequency database which holds over 200 com and an additional 200 nav frequencies, loaded via a USB stick. Dual Watch allows the monitoring of two com frequencies at the same time. Monitoring of a second Nav VOR is also possible – improving navigational accuracy. Trig’s popular ‘Say Again’ feature is a single touch button which instantly re-plays the last received transmission, meaning you don’t have to transmit, ‘say again’. The Nav/Com includes a two-place intercom, with support for stereo music. All TX56 models have a built-in digital course deviation indicator (CDI). The Nav supports VFR and IFR navigation, including ILS approaches. Trig’s TI106, Course Deviation Indicator is also available, as the ideal panel mounted companion to any TX56 model.

Trig’s Nav/Com product family includes the TX56, with a 10-Watt transmitter. The TX57 is a higher powered 16-Watt version for 28-volt aircraft. Both radios feature 8.33kHz channel spacing. The list price of the TX56 is $4,715 and the TX57 is $5,405. Two Nav/Com 760 channel (non 8.33kHz) versions are also available. The TX56A (10 Watt) list price is 4,485 and the TX57A (16 Watt) is $5,175.  All prices shown are list price and exclude sales tax or installation.

A Full Stack

Customers can now install a complete Trig stack by purchasing a TMA44 Audio Panel, TY96 VHF Radio and TT31 Mode S Transponder with their TX56 Nav/Com. A new Trig stack is a compelling package, with a good-looking harmonized design and an attractive list price of $10,935.

Trig’s ‘Better by Design’ philosophy allows customers to benefit from innovative avionics, which are easier to use and offer the a great mix of quality, features and value.
