Odyssey is fully Enigma connectivity and database compatible and for the first time, offers a large, 10.4" sunlight readable TFT screen EFIS system that is fully featured, expandable and future proof at a price that is truly affordable.
Odyssey builds on the proven, exceptionally flexible platform provided by the runaway success of the Stratomaster Enigma EFIS. As with Enigma, Odyssey provides a fully user customizable system of unmatched flexibility.
Odyssey is the World's largest EFIS system at an unbelievably low price - with all the functions you would expect and a lot more. MGL puts the latest technology to work, efficiently and effectively - then makes use of a top-notch, World class, certified electronics production facility. We believe that technological advancement has to include lower cost. Only technological advancement combined with lower cost can truly be called progress. Odyssey is the latest proof of MGL's commitment to this and your flying pleasure

Features listed here are only some of the available functionality, Odyssey, like its smaller brother Enigma, is a dynamic and very flexible development. Odyssey includes all of the Enigma functionality and adds items related mainly to its additional interfaces (ARINC429 etc).
Software based additions to functionality are made available to end users via free and unrestricted internet download with the actual task of updating a system being a simple and quick process taking only a few seconds.
Odyssey is fully compatible with the Enigma database system and application programs, all of which are available free of charge via internet download. Please note that 3rd party applications created by other companies or individuals may require purchase or licensing. Contact the relevant owners/creaters of these applications directly for information.
