Both NAV and COMM frequency displays on these units incorporate the popular flip-flop preselect feature. So, you can set up en route or approach frequency changeovers well in advance of your actual transition point or ATC handoff sequence for true stay ahead flight management. Just select your upcoming NAV or COMM frequency in the standby (STBY) display, and youre all set to flip-flop it into active status at the press of a button. This function may also be controlled from an optional remote mounted switch. Both active and standby frequencies are displayed simultaneously, so you never have to worry about whats being stored. And theres no chance of inadvertently erasing a frequency just when you need it most. An innovative non-volatile memory circuit holds all the displayed frequencies in storage through aircraft shutdowns or momentary power interruptions without the need for battery power of any kind.
