The GNS-480 (CNX 80) is aviation's first GPS navigator to include WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System). This means it can be used as the primary mode of navigation. The 15 channel receiver updates the aircraft's position five times a second. It provides oceanic-approved IFR GPS/NAV/COM functions along with ILS/VOR capabilities. The GNS 480 utilizes satellite-based signals for precise lateral and vertical approach guidance and provides glideslope guidance for LNAV/VNAV and LPV approaches. It also includes the VHF Navigation receiver and Communication transceiver along with controls for an external transponder.
Although the manufacturer's manual contains the official recommendations and is a tremendous reference, ZD Publishing, Inc. concentrates on a task-oriented format that guides you step-by-step. Generous use of graphics helps you understand the text for unfamiliar tasks. All GPS operations are covered. This comprehensive manual also describes all the receiver's pages and their uses. The table of contents, combined with the task-oriented format, make this take-along manual an invaluable aid for seldom-used features. Whether you are an experienced user or a novice at GPS operations, this manual has something for you.
