|The INS 429 is a high quality, multi-function, fully integrated navigational instrument displaying VOR, LOC, Glide Scope, Marker Beacon, and GPS/NAV inputs. Not only does it sport its own internal receivers, it will also display course deviation information from an external NAV or GPS source. A perfect solution for a crowded panel.|
I wanted the ability to ride the ILS down for cloud breaks without going to the expense of a full IFR set up. This unit works great, been using it for 2 years and its never let me down. Value for money
Nicely built all in one unit. I wanted a backup for my GTN-650 and find myself using this sometimes because it is so simple and works really well.
The Basic idea is great and if it would work, would be great. 1. I bought a unit which was claimed to be TSO´D for certified aircraft. AFter a while this description was removed. The unit is NOT certified and makes it basically useless for my IFR aircraft. 2. The recommended splitter which I bought was just wrong. You need a splitter which divides the Signal into G/S and VOR. 3.After I installed the correct splitter and after this recommendation was corrected also, the device is at least working a little bit. But still the Glide Slope is way away of being reliable. 4.I installed a new antenna in a prefect place and new cables, but no any change. 5. I will also change the cables now to highest quality available to see if there is any improvement. 6. The Support is HORRIBLE. The manufacturer does not answer for weeks. They made a hope for an update but since the communication is so bad I hardly trust I will get my unit ever back. 7. The only star left is the last Piece of hope, the device will work.
The NAV INS 429 has 2 audio outputs. One is for Nav audio and the other is for marker beacon audio. If you only have one input for this type of audio the marker beacon input can be tied to the Nav audio.
