The classroom setup uses the TI-Nspire Navigator Wireless Cradle that slides onto each TI-Nspire calculator and communicates with the teacher's computer via the TI-Nspire Navigator Access Point. Up to five wireless cradles can be charged in the TI-Nspire Cradle Charging Bay.

Dismantling this TI-Nspire Navigator Wireless Cradle manufactured in April 2011 by Inventec Corporation in its Pudong Campus in Shanghai, China reveals some major changes compared to an early prototype of the TI-Nspire Navigator Wireless Cradle: The docking connector was separated from the main printed circuit board (PCB) with a flexible PCB and the battery is not only smaller but accessible with a TI-Nspire docked.

The TI-Nspire CX and TI-Nspire CX CAS calculators require the Wireless Network Adapter to communicate with the TI-Nspire Navigator System.
