The successor to the original hero of the LX80/90xx series is here. 2021 sees the birth of the next generation of small compact high end navigational instruments and 8040 is spearheading it. It comes packed with a V8 variometer (optionally with V80). A 4.0″ anti-glare display that fits everywhere and an automatic light sensor that adjusts that brightness and optimizes the power consumption.

LX8040 has optional integrated PowerFlarm collision avoidance system.

LX8040 has build in flight recorder according to IGC specification for all flights including world records.

LX8040 copes with complex tasks with assigned area. During flight optimization according to FAI and OLC rules are shown.


– Dimensions: height: 82 mm, width: 82 mm, depth: 77 mm, weight: 460 g.
– Display resolution: 480 x 480 pixels, Brightness: 1200 cd.
– High-level IGC approved flight recorder with advanced engine noise level sensor. With MOP and MOP2 devices also JET, Electro and FES approved.
– Many statistics are available during and after the flight. Real time OLC scoring is available during the whole flight.
– Preloaded worldwide terrain, map, airspace and airport databases – FREE of charge!
– ICAO, IFOS, Rogersdata … buy and load your own ICAO maps.
– Airport mode navigates to a selected airport with all necessary information, such as RWY direction, length, frequency and type (grass/asphalt).
– Each page layout can be completely customized using LX Styler.
– Waypoint and Task Mode. Very easy selection of Waypoints with an intuitive user interface. Create a task on the device or in SeeYou and simply load it via the USB or Wi-Fi (WiFi is a standard feature) or SD (SD cardreader is optional).
– The AAT assistant shows the most optimized direction for maximum speed on the task. A very accurate time calculation helps you to arrive home precisely on time.
– The Flarm mode feature displays all types of FLARM objects if the optional, integrated PowerFlarm module is installed. ADS-B objects can also be displayed if the optional, integrated ADS-B receiver is installed. External PowerFlarms, Flarms and/or ADS-B receivers can also be connected.
– The Flarm Radar shows all necessary data. The target’s present position, altitude and vertical speed are displayed on the map. For each new alert a pop-up appears automatically when a potential collision occurs. The system will also trigger a sound and/or voice warning. (optional, integrated PowerFlarm module or connection with external PowerFlarm required)
– 56 channel GPS module built in and USB port available for data exchange and smartphone charge.
– SD card socket optional.
– GO-TO function without any waypoints by using the PAN mode. Simple and visual exploration of nearby airspaces with all details.
– 4 different methods are used to precisely calculate wind speed and direction. An inertial variometer provides a very accurate wind indication during straight flight.
– The wind altitude profile displays the wind indication at different altitudes. The wind arrow shows the current wind direction. The arrow can be customized in size, position and colour.

– Integrated Wi-Fi frees up you USB port and allows for more compact instrument installation…and of course this gives you many extra features:
– NOTAMs, flight uploads, GPSAeroData, US Charts, device upgrades and many other features are now just a click away even while flying.
– Don’t be worried while flying a long distance flight – now you can see a real time rain radar picture while in the air. Combine it with satellite image to ensures you stay one step ahead of the weather at all time.
– It’s like having a meteorologist on board with weather forecast services provided by TopMeteo and SkySight (subscription required). More than 20 different weather layers allow you to plan your flight to perfection.
– Download competition task on race-day from Soaring spot and send your day-winning flight log by email to competition director with just one push of the button.
– Uploading your flight to websites such as WeGlide has never been easier.
– Google drive and Dropbox support makes synchronizing waypoints, tasks, airspaces and pilot profiles fast and simple.
