LX 8040 with V8 Variometer 
The LX8040 is a high end vario navigation system with extremely bright color display. The main display fits into the same 82 x 82 mm space as a standard 80 mm instrument.  Yet the 4.0 inch screen is much larger and of higher resolution (480 x 480 pixels) than the 3.5 inch (320 x 240 pixel) screen found in its 98 mm wide predecessor, the LX8000. 

The included V8 variometer fits into a standard 57 mm instrument hole. If there is room for an 80 mm variometer, the V80 is an optional upgrade. 

Simple and logical user interface is designed for top-level competitors, club operation as well as for gliding beginners. It is preloaded with worldwide terrain maps, airspace and airports databases. User friendly data exchange is done using the standard built-in Wi-Fi connectivity or USB interface, or with an optional, externally-mounted SD Card reader. The LX8040 has a built-in GPS flight recorder that is IGC approved for all flights. LX8040 copes with complex tasks with assigned areas. In-flight optimizations according to FAI and OLC rules are also shown.

PowerFLARM Compatibility
The LX8040 can works great with an external PowerMouse or PowerFLARM Fusion connected to the round 5-pin connector on the wiring harness that attaches to the back of the LX8040 using an LXNAV-LX5-PF or LXNAV-LX5-PFCore cable. The LX8040 displays the FLARM, ADS-B and PCAS Mode C and Mode S transponder traffic from the PowerFLARM on the moving map and vario display.
