ODYSSEY             Generation 2
Odyssey EFIS - Generation 2
Big Daddy

The Odyssey is a comprehensive flight, engine and navigation instrument designed for Experimental and Light Sport aircraft. Like the Enigma, the Odyssey is a hardware and software concept that promotes a flexible, powerful EFIS platform together with a software application system that is highly user-modifiable.

As an EFIS hardware platform, the Odyssey provides state of the art multi-processor based processing utilizing components chosen for absolute robustness in radiation intense environments such as found at high altitudes. This is coupled with intense low power design methods to further maximize overall system application and reliability.

The large amount of flexibility built into the base system allows the adaptation of the Odyssey to almost any mission and aircraft. Due to low system cost, the Odyssey is equally suited to very light aircraft, gliders and rotorcraft, while providing enough flexibility to be utilized by even twin-engine aircraft with full dual engine monitoring.

The Odyssey shares all software features with the Enigma, but differs in the following ways:

  • Larger screen (10.4” diagonal)
  • High resolution full VGA active TFT display - one of the best we have found!
  • Faster processor for higher resolution 3D terrain, and graphical transparencies
  • 2 user-configurable rotary knobs and 7 function keys
  • ARINC 429 interface for communication with traffic alert systems (TIS and ZAON XRX) and for communicating with high-end digital autopilots (GPS Steer and Vertical Nav)
  • CAN (automotive bus) for reading the ECU of automotive engine conversions, and direct connection to MGL servos
  • Analog +/- 150mA NAV inputs to display CDI/LOC/GS when connected to older analog Nav radios
  • Auxiliary PAL/NTSC video inputs (4), and video output for external VGA repeater screen


  • Weight: Under 4 lbs
  • Current Draw: Only 1.5 Amps @ 12 Volts
  • Cost: Typical packages complete with attitude and heading sensors around $6,000


  • Screen brightness (800-1000 nits)
  • Reliability
  • Flexibility (any screen layout you want!)
  • Feature count (more instrument options available than most EFISs)

Warranty: The Odyssey comes with a 3-year limited Warranty from MGL Avionics US and a 30-day Total Satisfaction Guarantee
