My pilot and copilot side headphones and mike work fine in my Cessna 177. The rear system does not work, can this unit be used to plug in the rear two and the copilot and would all four communicate with each other?
No, you cannot run two intercoms and have them work together. A portable intercom is intended to override the panel mount intercom. Your best bet is to buy a four place intercom and have everyone in the cabin plug into it and plug the intercom into the pilot side panel jacks.
For the Nav-Data 4 place intercom, can 4 headsets be plugged in and communicate with each other without push to talk switches?
Yes, you would not need any additional components to communicate with 3 other headsets aside from the 9v battery to power it.
Does this unit have a power jack so i can power it off the airplane or is it only off a 9v battery?
The Nav-Data 4 Place intercom will only work off the 9v battery plus a failsafe feature in the event of dead battery.
