Avionics upgrades priced for your aircraftAvionics upgrades priced for your aircraft

Garmin has leveraged decades of experience in avionics in certified aircraft and its existing product line to bring scalable avionics solutions to general aviation. Aircraft owners have the opportunity to take a building-block approach to their panel upgrade, starting with the G5 electronic flight instrument and work up to the G3X Touch flight display. Economical autopilot and GPS navigators add even more value and capability to any panel, all of which are backed by a trusted brand and an award-winning aviation support team.

G3X Touch for certified aircraft

Multiple G3X Touch panel configurations and display options allow pilots and aircraft owners to better leverage their current and future avionics investment. One configuration includes a 10.6-inch G3X Touch display paired with a 7-inch display and another includes dual 7-inch displays. For space-limited panels, pilots can also install a single 10.6-inch or 7-inch display. In configurations where multiple displays are installed, the G3X Touch system offers redundancy and reversionary mode as a single display is capable of showing all primary flight information, including engine information when installed. The G3X Touch suite also offers features such as synthetic vision (SVX™) and wireless connectivity, which are both available as standard. The G3X Touch flight display is approved for installation in nearly 500 single-engine piston aircraft.

GPS 175, GNC 355 & GNX 375

When incorporating either the GPS 175, GNC 355 or GNX 375, pilots receive the benefits of high-integrity WAAS/SBAS GPS guidance in a compact, (6.25-inches wide by 2-inches tall) design. The GPS 175 is a standalone certified IFR navigator with a vibrant, color touchscreen display packed with advanced features and capabilities including WAAS/LPV approaches. The GNC 355 & GNX 375 have all of the capability of the GPS 175 and add a modern COMM radio or dual-link ADS-B In/Out transponder respectively. Fully IFR-approach-capable, the GPS 175, GNC 355 & GNX 375 give pilots the benefit of flying LPV, as well as all Area Navigation (RNAV) approaches.

GFC 500 autopilot & G5 electronic flight instrument

The GFC 500 autopilot uniquely integrates with the G5 to provide pilots with an economical autopilot and modern flight instrument. The GFC 500 incorporates solid state attitude with robust self-monitoring capabilities to provide superior autopilot performance, greater reliability and safety benefits that are similar to the popular GFC 700 autopilot that is flying on many iconic business aircraft today. The GFC 500 boasts a number of safety-enhancing technologies, as well, including Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP™), underspeed protection, overspeed protection, Level Mode, Flight Director (FD) and more.

When the GFC 500 is paired with a compatible navigator, pilots receive the capability to fly fully coupled instrument approach procedures, including Localizer Performance with Vertical (LPV) approaches. Vertical navigation (VNAV) also allows pilots to generate vertical descent profiles by setting altitude constraints in a flight plan.

Comprising of a bright, 3.5-inch sunlight readable liquid crystal display (LCD), the G5 electronic flight instrument is approved for installation in place of the aircraft’s existing attitude indicator, DG or HSI via a Garmin-held STC for hundreds of certificated fixed-wing aircraft models.
