Garmin ships G3X Touch displays, connectivity equipment
OLATHE, Kan., 15 Jan. 2015. Garmin is shipping its G3X Touch 7-inch flight displays and Flight Stream 110/210 wireless gateways.
The new 7-inch G3X Touch is designed to provide more panel planning options and system redundancy for pilots with limited space in their aircraft panels. Pilots who want multiple display configurations now have the option of installing up to three displays, using any combination of 10.6-inch or 7-inch G3X Touch displays.
When paired with the larger-format version, the 7-inch touchscreen can serve as a dedicated display for such features as traffic surveillance, full-screen moving map, geo-referenced charts, and EIS engine information, while serving as a backup to your primary flight display (PFD). All G3X Touch displays feature Garmin’s SVX 3D synthetic vision. Bluetooth connectivity, via Garmin Connext, comes built-in with the system, enabling wireless data streaming to/from a compatible tablet or mobile device using the Garmin Pilot app.
Part of the Garmin Connext family of flight connectivity solutions, the new Flight Stream 110 and 210 Bluetooth gateways are small, aircraft-mounted devices that work with the Garmin Pilot app on iPad, iPhone, and select Android devices, enabling wireless streaming of information to/from avionics. The Flight Stream 110 offers GPS, attitude, weather, and traffic streaming from the GDL 88 ADS-B and/or the GDL 69/GDL 69A SiriusXM datalink, providing benefits without the need for a cockpit-installed display.
The Flight Stream 210 adds the capability for flight plan syncing with the GTN 750/650 series and GNS 430W/530W series navigators, as well as backup attitude information for display within Garmin Pilot. With this wireless technology, pilots are able to use a mobile device’s touchscreen as a true cockpit interface. For customers with a GDL 69 receiver, the Flight Stream 110/210 also enables a tablet/mobile device to be used as a wireless remote control for a SiriusXM satellite radio system.
