PS Engineering has devoted considerable effort in providing a means of customizing the audio panel to meet particular needs. Ease of use was foremost, so voice annunciations are used with the selection of each function. These voice prompts assures that the pilot knows exactly what the selected function is, in plain English.

There are three audio panel configurations that can be selected from the front panel. 

  • How the music is distributed
  • The operation of the intercom while in the ALL mode
  • Turning on and off the Monitor Function

Once a particular configuration is selected, an announcement will be made that alerts the pilot that that particular function has been selected.

The Monitor Function will automatically mute the secondary radio audio when the primary radio becomes active.  The Monitor Function will help you to never miss the radio call that coms from the primary radio (radio that has been selected to transmit on). 

  When the cellular phone is connected and the pilot pushes the “TEL” button our “Du-tel”™ system goes online. The Pilot can make a private phone call, everyone can be on the phone, or just the pilot and copilot can use the telephone. This selection is made by the ISO, ALL and Crew switch. 

While using the phone, the pilot can receive and transmit on the selected VHF COM, for seamless integration in the cockpit. (Cellular telephone use in flight is not permitted, but remains a convenient and safe way to contact air-traffic control or a weather briefer while on the ground.)

Our Internal Recording System (IRS™) allows the pilots to instantly play back the last received radio call. This may eliminate the need for the pilot to request “say again,” or assure themselves that the last radio call was for them. Pressing and holding the primary com RCV button will begin the playback. Up to 8 messages can be recorded and played back in sequence.

The PMA8000B/BT is backward compatible with all PMA8000 as well as a direct replacement for the GARMIN GMA340
