Overview
LX Navigation is a great soaring instrument company in Slovenia. They have been making and supporting instruments for sailplanes since the early 1990's - starting with products like the LX20 and Colibri and LX4000. They have come a long way since then. Their latest products are very high-tech instruments.


LX Navigation Versus LXNAV
LX Navigation has been making popular soaring flight instruments for many years.  Several years ago the company divided into two companies.  The original LX Navigation remains and makes the Colibri II, LX Zeus, EOS and other products.  Some of the other products that had been made by LX Navigation in the past (LX8000) have gone to the new LXNAV company.  LXNAV makes the Nano, LX8000, LX8080, LX9000, S3, S7, V80 and other products.


Colibri Setup and Tips Document
This document is designed as a "need to know" document for new Colibri owners.  Let me know if you have any suggestions for improving the document. Note that this document applies to the original Colibri - not the more recent Colibri II.

Example Systems

LX EOS with Naviter Oudie 2
This is a great system. The EOS is a speed-to-fly vario with built-in IGC approved GPS flight recorder and backup navigation with waypoints and tasks. It sends
vario, GPS, and airspeed data to the Oudie. The Oudie is a full-features flight computer with an extremely bright display. The EOS provides power to the Oudie through the Oudie's power/data cable and an adapter cable and RJ45 coupler. The Oudie can send task declarations to the LX EOS.

powers the Oudie-Cable-Kit
with 12V power from the LX EOS.
or
Cable-EOS-Oudie-noPwr-0p3
This cable does not pass 12V power
from the EOS. In this case the red

power the Oudie independently.

Important Note
: If the LX EOS powers this

on the red and black power leads so they
won't short.

LX EOS with PowerFLARM Core and Naviter Oudie 2
This is a great system. The EOS is a speed-to-fly vario with built-in IGC approved GPS flight recorder and backup navigation with waypoints and tasks. It sends
vario, GPS, and airspeed data to the Oudie 2. The Oudie is a full-features flight computer with an extremely bright display. The EOS provides power to the Oudie 2 through the Oudie's power/data cable and an adapter cable and RJ45 coupler. The EOS also powers the PowerFLARM Core with 12V. FLARM data is forwarded through the LX EOS to the Oudie 2. Since both the LX EOS and Oudie 2 can display FLARM traffic, a remote FLARM display may not be necessary. Both the PowerFLARM Core and the Naviter Oudie 2 have the ability to record non-IGC approved flight logs which are accepted by the OLC (Online Contest) - which is a nice backup to the IGC approved flight recorder in the LX EOS. It is also possible to upgrade the PowerFLARM Core to enable IGC approved flight recording for $100.

For connecting an LX Navigation Colibri II to a Goddard PS-5a power converter. DB-9f at PS-5a end and mini-USB at Colibri II end. The PS-5a provides 5V power for the Colibri II.

  $95.00 In Stock
Colibri-PC-Pwr Colibri PC Cable - by Goddard
This cable is used to connect an LX Navigation Colibri (not the Colibri II) to 12V power and to a PC for transferring waypoints to the Colibri or downloading flight logs from the Colibri to a PC.  The connector for connection to the PC is a DB-9f connector.  Two cables exit the DB-9f connector.  Both the cable to the RJ6/6 (6-conductor phone jack) connector (for the Colibri) and the power leads are 2 m long.  The wiring harness has a total of 3 connections:
  • RJ6/6 (6-conductor phone jack), with 2 m (6.56 ft) cable - Plugs into the Colibri for the power and data connections
  • DB-9f, 9-pin female connector - for connection to a PC
  • Power leads - bare leads for connecting to a 12V power source such as the Pwr-12V-500mA wall plug or a 12V battery.  The 12V power converter is not included.

This cable's DB-9f 9-pin connector is designed for connection to a PC's RS-232 serial port.  However, most new PCs don't have RS-232 serial ports.  However, the FTDI Chip USB Serial Adapter can be used to add a serial port to any PC that has a USB port.  It works great with the Colibri.

LX-ColibriII-Mounting-Frame Colibri II Mounting Frame
Nice, simple mounting frame for Colibri II units. This frame is not included with the Colibri II, but it is a very nice accessory.

$25 In Stock
LX-ColibriII-Pwr-Data Colibri II Power and Data Adapter
The adapter is not included with the Colibri II, but it is a very important accessory. You power the adapter with 12V from your glider's 12V power system and it powers the Colibri II with 5V power through the Colibri II's mini-USB connector. It also has a built-in serial voltage adapter to convert the Colibri II's low-voltage serial data to standard RS-232 serial data levels. A standard USB to mini-USB cable (not included with this adapter but included with the Colibri II) is used to connect the adapter to the Colibri II. The 6-pin RJ port on the adapter follows the IGC standard and has the same connections as the original Colibri. Cables that connected to an original Colibri can be connected directly to this adapter.
Input: 12V, Output: 5V,
Includes built-in serial data voltage level converter.

LXNAV-LX5PC Cable for connecting PC to LX 7000, LX 7007, LX 8000 or LX 9000
This cable connects a PC to the small, round, panel mounted "PC connector" found on the LX7000, LX7007, LX 8000 and LX 9000 wiring harness.  It has a small round 5-pin female connector for connecting to the panel mounted "PC connector" and a DB-9f connector for connecting to a PC serial port.  This cable is included in the box with the LX7000 and LX7007.  It is probably not included in the box with the LX 8000 and LX 9000 because data is normally transferred to those units using an SD card of USB Flash Drive.

Note: This cable is designed to connect to a DB-9 9-pin RS-232 serial connector on a PC.  Most current PCs don't have 9-pin serial connectors, so a USB to serial adapter will be required.  I have tried many, and found many that didn't work at all.  I finally found one that works great with most soaring instruments.  It is the Keyspan USA-19HS Serial Adapter.  I like it so much I decided to stock and sell it.  You can see details here:FTDI Chip USB Serial Adapter.

LX-Voice-Module

Voice Module for LX7007 and Zeus
The LX Voice Module was developed to make the LX7007 and Zeus units even more user friendly by providing voice warnings and information generated by the built in voice synthesizer.

The LX Voice Module does not require the external power supply.  There are also no additional speakers necessary as the built in audio mixer makes the existing vario speaker also available for the voice.

Hardware Configuration
The aluminum black box (55 x 22 x 75 mm / 2.17 x 0.87 x 2.95 inches) may be installed anywhere in the cockpit. Three digital inputs also allow connection of other external sensors providing e.g. landing gear or air brakes status signals

The unit is powered and controlled via the LX system bus. The existing speaker should only be reconnected from the LX7007 output to the Voice Module output. The unit includes the audio mixer controlled by the LX 7007 to reduce the vario volume during the Voice Module active time. The mixer setting is controlled entirely by the pilot. The LX7007 with FLARM option also provides FLARM warnings to the Voice Module.

Technical data:

  • Power: 12 V DC from LX 7007 or Zeus RS485 bus, consumption 20 mA without audio
  • Size: 55 x 22 x 75 mm / 2.17 x 0.87 x 2.95 inches
  • 3 inputs
  • SD card data storage medium
  • Audio mixer controlled by LX7007
  • Voice volume control via LX7007
  • User configurable inputs via the ini file stored on SD card

BNC-RA BNC Elbow
