The sophisticated KNI 582 radio magnetic indicator reduces your workload by displaying 3 data points at once.  First, it shows the magnetic heading of your aircraft on the compass card.  The heading information comes from a compass system.  Second (and third) the indicator's two needles can be each switched to present either directional or non-directional radio navigation data.  This switching is accomplished easily with two push buttons on the front of the indictor.  Combining all this information in one device gives you a much faster grasp of your aircraft's overall situation. 
The KNI 582 comes with 50 pin connector, about 40 of which are used for connecting to other equipment.  This high number of inputs makes the KNI 582 one of the most versatile instruments on your panel.
