GARMIN announces the release of GTN650 and GTN750
Garmin is leading the avionics industry again with the “next generation” touchscreen avionics. The panel-mount units are equipped with the latest in touchscreens, remote audio control, flight planning and electronic chart capabilities. The screen area has changed dramatically, in addition to the desktop-like interface. The GTN 650 offers 53 percent more screen area than the GNS430W and the GTN750 offers 98 percent more screen area. The larger screen area allows the viewing of entire charts. The units also offer enhanced situational awareness. There is a built-in terrain database that shows when potential conflicts are ahead. The units also allow pilots to fly GPS-guided LPV glidepath approaches down to ILS minimums. There is also XM Satellite weather, XM radio, traffic and lightning available on a moving map.
