Overview

General aviation’s newest and most advanced NAV/COM radio is pilot-friendly by design. That’s because we consulted pilots at every phase of a development process that started with a blank CAD screen and ended with the creation of a groundbreaking new radio for the 2020s and beyond.

The BendixKing KX 200 is an easy direct replacement with the same footprint as your current KX 155/165 radio. But that is where the similarity ends. The KX 200 features:
  • High-resolution color LCD
  • 50-channel memory presets
  • 25kh or 8.33kh channel spacing
  • Full featured digital NAV/COM with VOR, LOC, ILS, and glide slope
  • Compatible with existing indicators and installed equipment
  • Compatible with 14- and 28-volt systems
  • Possibility to expand capabilities with future Honeywell Anthem cockpit connectivity
  • Two-year warranty

BendixKing Makes Upgrading to the KX 200 Easy
Moving up to the KX 200 couldn’t be easier, since it’s a direct replacement for your current KX 155, 165 and can substitute other radios using the same tray and connector. That also means the KX 200 is compatible with existing equipment, which reduces both cost and aircraft downtime during the conversion

Q: Is the BENDIXKING KX 200 NAV / COM RADIO compatible with my KI 209, is it a direct plug in for my KX 155 and will it work with my KMA 24 Audio Panel? I have a Piper Cherokee 180C, 12V system

Per BendixKing: Yes it will, that is the beauty of direct replacement, it will work with all existing components.

Q: Will there be any interface with Garmin Products on the KX200? ie.. the GI 275 and the G3X.

No, this is an analog radio and cannot interface to a digital glass panel.

Q: Does the KX200 come with a tray/is there an option for a tray? Or is it only for KX155/165 replacement?

Yes, this will come with a tray as well.

Q: While neither says it directly, Garmin states the GI 275 works with the KX 155, and Honeywell states the KX 200 is a direct replacement. Can you verify whether the KX 200 will work with the GI 275?

Yes, this will work with the KX-200 but it will have limitations on its capabilities.

Q: Will the KX 200 directly replace KX 175 nav/com?

No, it will not replace a KX-175.

Q: I have a KX 155. Do I need the retrofit adapter?

Per BendixKing: The KX-200 has been designed to directly replace existing legacy KX-155 and KX-165 radios. For 14 and 28 volt applications, a separate adapter is required for each of these installations.

Q: What is the retrofit adapter and when/why is it needed?

Per BendixKing: The KX-200 has been designed to directly replace existing legacy KX-155 and KX-165 radios. For 14 and 28 volt applications, a separate adapter is required for each of these installations.

Q: Clarification is needed. I would be replacing my KX-155 (which is a 14 volt unit) in my Cessna 172 which has a 14 volt system. Is this a direct replacement, or do I need the 14 volt adapter?

Yes, the 14v adapter would be required here.

Q: Will the item be drop shipped from Honeywell, or will it come through Aircraft Spruce?

This item will come from Aircraft Spruce once our stock is received.

Q: What exactly does the retrofit adapter do on the KX200, and where does it go?

Per BendixKing: The adapter will be mounted on to the back of the KX 200 to allow the "slide-in" replacement from the KX radios. The mounting and connector of the KX 200 is slightly different than the KX radios, so the adapter will allow the installer to just slide in the KX 200 without any wiring changes.

As a new install, as in not replacing a KX radio, the adapter will not be needed.
