Key Benefits of BendixKing KDR 610 XM receiver:

How does the system work?
The system is comprised of three hardware components: The KDR 610 receiver, a cockpit display and an antenna (not included with receiver). The KDR 610 receives the signal and then supplies data to the KMD 550, KMD 850 and KMD 250 MFD. The MFD displays data in textual or graphical format so that entire files are sent and received in seconds, assuring you of timely information.
What kind of coverage does this system offer?
No need to request data or wait for a reply, the KMD 550, KMD 850 and KMD 250 automatically update with the latest information whether you are viewing weather on the MFD or not. It works at any altitude in the continental United States, including coverage on the ground. This ensures rapid access to weather and provides the most recent weather information available.
