Our popular G500/G600 glass flight displays are introducing an expanded feature set, making them more capable than ever. The new GTX 345 all-in-one ADS-B transponder will interface with the G500/G600 to display the benefits of ADS-B In traffic and weather. Additionally, database synchronization streamlines database updating when two G500/G600 systems are paired together or when a G500/G600 is paired with aGTN 650/750 touchscreen series navigator. Flight Stream 510 installed in a GTN enables Database Concierge wireless database updates across all installed G500/G600 and GTN products. The addition of European Visual Reporting Points and other customer-requested features also enable a variety of new capabilities within the G500/G600 glass flight displays.

GTX 345 ADS-B In traffic & weather

Advanced ADS-B integration is available with the GTX 345 all-in-one ADS-B transponder, offering pilots the capability to display ADS-B traffic and subscription-free FIS-B weather on the G500/G600 flight displays. Regardless of the existing avionics configuration, the GTX 345 unlocks more capabilities for pilots by also displaying ADS-B traffic, weather, GPS position data and back-up attitude information on select Garmin portables, and the popular Garmin Pilot and ForeFlight Mobile apps via Bluetooth and Connext wireless technology. Unique features such as TerminalTraffic provides pilots with a comprehensive picture of ADS-B-equipped aircraft and ground vehicles in the airport environment. Further enhancing the traffic display, TargetTrend relative motion technology helps pilots visualize the trend of traffic as it relates to their aircraft. For customers with synthetic vision technology enabled, traffic targets are displayed on the PFD. Pilots also have access to a comprehensive set of FIS-B weather products via the GTX 345, including NEXRAD, METARs, TAFs, PIREPs, winds and temperatures aloft, NOTAMs and AIRMET/SIGMETs.

Database synchronization

Customers with one or more GTN touchscreen navigators installed alongside a G500/G600  or those with a dual G500/G600 installation receive additional benefits with database sync. Once customers complete the wireless database transfer to the GTN, the databases are automatically synced with the G500/G600. Chart streaming also allows pilots to view and utilize departure, approach and arrival charts when needed, even while the full chart database is synchronizing with the G500/G600.

When a G500/G600 is paired with a GTN 650/750 touchscreen navigator and Flight Stream 510, customers receive Database Concierge wireless database transfer capabilities via a mobile device operating Garmin Pilot. Pilots can more easily manage their database subscriptions with Flight Stream 510 and also receive additional benefits such as wireless flight plan transfer, the sharing of traffic, weather, GPS and more. With Flight Stream and a GTN, G500/G600 customers can also wirelessly display back-up attitude information within a mobile device.

Additional enhancements and updates

The G500/G600 flight displays also offer additional functions and options, including:

  • European Visual Reporting Points (VRPs) display on the moving map
  • Ownship icons match those from the GTN 650/750 touchscreen series
  • Option to display weather radar across multiple displays in a dual G500/G600 installation
  • For new installations, support for the GSU 75 ADAHRS combines air data, attitude and heading reference, which reduces wiring and installation complexity
