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 Prototype manufactured in January 2009 by Inventec Corporation in its Pudong Campus in Shanghai, China reveals a rather complex design with multiple printed circuit boards (PCBs).

Please notice the huge Li-ION battery pack with a capacity of 1650 mAh.

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