Compact and Lightweight
The ADS-B bundle installation options are versatile and practical. Each of the products within the bundle are lightweight and compact. The transponder hardware back box, and TN72 GPS can be installed away from your panel saving space and easing installation. The TC20 transponder control head includes a built in altitude encoder and can be installed in a 2 1/4″ round mount or in a space saving compact mount.
Already flying with Trig?
If you are already a Trig pilot and flying with a TT22 transponder, then adding a TN72 GPS position source and GPS Antenna to your installation will provide ADS-B Out. This is a simple installation and makes sense – you already have half the solution.
For installations where space is tight, we offer a highly compact puck GPS antenna called the TA50. This is an uncertified, lightweight and discreet. The antenna cable is available in 100cm or 300cm lengths. If you would prefer this option then ask your dealer to order the TT22 transponder, TN72 GPS position source and a TA50 antenna individually.
Warranty and Support
All Trig products ship with a two year warranty, this starts from the date of installation not from the date of purchase. All software updates are free from our Service Center (in Kansas Wichita) and the team can turn this around for you in five working days (excludes shipping costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Does the bundle come with all relevant wiring?
To make your installation easier Trig wiring harnesses are available to purchase. Trig transponder wiring harnesses are available in 100cm or 300cm lengths and come with or without a connector to the TN72. Due to the variety of options available we advise you to select the most suitable wiring harness from our wiring harness product page (found in the left hand 'Product' navigation menu).
I am flying outside the US and would like to purchase the bundle. How can I do this?
The ADS-B Bundle is currently only available to purchase through a Trig dealer in the US.
In the US to be ADS-B complaint you must use a TT22 (Class 1 transponder) outside of America you can you the TT21 (Class 2 transponder).
You can still purchase each of the items in the bundle separately but you may wish to purchase the TT21 instead of the TT22.
Check your local / appropriate ADS-B regulations to verify if a Class 1 transponder or Class 2 transponder is required.
