G3X Engine Monitoring Capabilities Enhanced
Garmin's G3X Touch flight display for experimental amateur-built aircraft recently received an upgrade expanding its already versatile characteristics with improved engine monitoring capabilities. While the majority of G3X Touch systems are commonly found in aircraft with a single four or six-cylinder engine application – such as Continental, Lycoming or Rotax – our latest enhancement is tailored to a more niche homebuilder. This builder requires a digital engine monitoring system for either a twin-engine experimental aircraft, or a single-engine experimental aircraft with 7-12 cylinders.
Garmin G3X 10inch Touch
The G3X Touch suite of displays offers incredible installation flexibility. Use any combination of up to 4 of the 10.6" and 7" landscape or 7" portrait displays. These bright, easy-to-read screens are easily configured as PFDs for attitude, airspeed, altitude, heading, vertical speed and more; MFDs with advanced moving map, including terrain, obstacle and traffic alerts, georeferenced FliteCharts or Jeppesen ChartView charts and SafeTaxi airport diagrams; or optional EIS.
Garmin GDL 50 Remote
For pilots flying with our G3X Touch glass display systems in their experimental/amateur-built or light sport aircraft, the compact GDL 50R remote-mount receiver brings an array of safety-enhancing features to the cockpit. It connects your flight displays with subscription-free graphical weather content and advanced dual-band traffic services being continuously uplinked through the U.S. ADS-B network. Plus, you can also use our Connext wireless connectivity to stream this information onto multiple Garmin aviation portables (including aera® 660, aera 796 or aera 795 series) as well as iPad® tablets and mobile devices with the Garmin Pilot™ app.
Garmin GTX 335 ADS-B "Out" Transponder
Installed in centre console by yoke stick
With morefielded ADS-B solutions than any other brand in the industry, Garmin is committed to making the transition to NextGen airspace as simple and straightforward as possible. The IFR-certified GTX 335 is a prime example. It looks and operates like a standard Mode S transponder. It fits in the same 1.65-inch high slot in your avionics stack. It boasts a digital display, a pressure altitude readout, and dedicated pushbuttons numbered 0-9 for quick and easy squawk code entry. Plus, it’s an all solid-state design, which makes for lower power consumption and enhanced reliability, compared to earlier-generation transponder technology. What’s more, the addition of 1090 MHz ADS-B “Out” transmission capability (using precise GPS-referenced positioning information) enables the GTX 335 to automatically output more accurate, and more useful, traffic surveillance data to ATC – including aircraft flight ID, position, altitude, velocity, climb/descent, and heading information. Conventional Mode S and Mode C transponders can only broadcast altitude and squawk code – which means they require ground-based radar to correlate and identify the aircraft’s position on the controller’s radar screen.
Garmin GTR 200
Installed in centre console by yoke stick
Going above and beyond the call of duty of a traditional Comm, the GTR 200 includes a 2-place stereo intercom that is ideal for 2-seat aircraft; no additional hardware is required to communicate with your passenger. Advanced auto squelch automatically senses the noise level in the cockpit and adjusts the mic squelch for effortless intercom use regardless of the cockpit noise level. Listen to music inputs with Hi-Fi, home theater-like quality, featuring bass boost as well as pop, classical and rock music equalizer options. For added simplicity, optional Bluetooth connectivity adds the ability to make phone calls and listen to audio entertainment wirelessly. Pilot-configurable soft keys can provide 1-touch access to emergency frequency tuning, pilot audio isolation, saved frequencies list, music mute or push-to-talk. Plus, optional installed remote switches on the flight controls allow pilots to keep their hands on the controls while performing functions like swapping the active and standby frequencies.
Garmin GPS 20A
Designed to fit within the equipment budget and operating requirements of most experimental/amateur-built and light sport (LSA) aircraft owners, the Garmin GPS 20A provides a simple, self-contained WAAS position source that works with most 1090 ES transponders to meet the latest Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules for ADS-B “Out” compliance.
