Bluetooth
It has a built-in Bluetooth module that provides wireless connectivity to your aviation headset, and a GPS allows navigational capabilities outside the limitations of VORs. You can also connect multiple headsets via Bluetooth to this radio. Additionally, when connected using Bluetooth, you can use the VOX function to automatically transmit when a voice is heard.

ILS Navigation (Localizer and Glide Slope)
When the FTA-850L receives an ILS signal, the display will automatically switch to the NAV band screen which shows a CDI (Course Deviation Indicator) based on the received localizer signal or the glide slope signal. Course and height deviation are clearly presented on the color CDI display, and aid with the landing approach under bad weather conditions.

VOR Navigation
When the FTA-850L receives a VOR signal, the display automatically switches to the NAV band screen and shows the CDI. The top of the compass rose always indicates the direction set as the OBS. The SOG (Speed Over Ground) is displayed only when the FTA-850L internal GPS unit is activated and a fix is acquired.

Flight-Route Display and Navigation
The Flight Route Navigation feature clearly presents the traveling route, listing the waypoints from the departure point to the final destination, including the current position where Navigation is being performed. Route, Location and travel status can be assessed at a glance. Navigation is also displayed on an easy-to-read color compass screen.

Dual Frequency Display
DD (Dual Frequency Display) screen presents two frequencies separately on the top and bottom of the screen. The most recently tuned information (Comm Frequency, Memory group and Weather channel) are always set into the active channel automatically. the target mode and channel can easily be switched between different modes using the DD screen, without going through the MENU.

First day w radio - ALL GOOD

  • By Stan from North Georgia on Sunday, March 05, 2023
  • Pros: Amazing intuitive features and capabilities in small radio.
  • Review: Full disclosure - I just got this yesterday and have not flown with it yet. What I HAVE done is set everything up for my local airports and I've driven with it to test GPS navigation, and I've listened to AWOS and radio traffic at local airports. I've also set up Bluetooth to my Bose A20 headset. My initial impression - this is one of those products that you think, "Gee I hope it works this way" then it DOES. I'm most impressed so far. The COMM function, MEMORY, SCAN, GPS, squelch, Bluetooth - all work very well and are intuitive ONCE you read the manual. As others have noted, you need to study the manual. As a tip, look up the YCE46 software manual. It describes the functions of the FTA-850 in more detail.

    The thing you need to keep in mind vs on-board modern avionics is that there is no database for this radio. That means you have to manually program Lat / Lon, frequencies, names, etc. But after you've done one, the rest are very quick and you're ready to go.

Nice Transceiver - good price - delivered on time

  • By A Customer from Frederick Md on Thursday, January 12, 2023
  • Pros:
  • Review: so far so good but more testing needed
    mainly commenting on MyPilotStore here

  • Verified Purchase

  • By on Friday, July 15, 2022
  • Pros:
  • Review: Not sure if this radio has been designed for pilots.
    A nagging reminder "you assume total responsibility and risk..." has to be confirmed at each power on.

    The list of odd handlings is long.
    - Freqs cannot be put in the order you need them, but are listed alphabetically,
    - no wrap-around in most lists: when you are at the end of a 50+ list you have to step back to go to the first item
    - navigation is strange: when you GOTO a point, pilots would expect a course, but just get a red blob on a compass rose which is dancing when you're on ground,
    - GPS reception is slow and easily screened
    - VOR settings can only be made after VOR reception,
    - Keys are too small compared to competitors and poorly lighted.

    A nice radio to play with at your office desk, but of limited use in your cockpit.
