Garmin has announced several new enhancements and the addition of new features within its GTN 650/750 series touchscreen navigators. With the latest software update and a compatible ADS-B In receiver, pilots can now view new FIS-B weather products on the GTN. Additionally, when the GTN 650/750 is paired with a G3X Touch flight display in experimental/amateur-built aircraft, pilots now have the option to edit VFR flight plan information from the G3X Touch. These features and more are available immediately from Garmin authorised dealers for hundreds of aircraft makes and models.
When paired with a compatible ADS-B In product such as the GTX 345 or GDL 88, pilots can now access the latest FIS-B weather products on the moving map alongside flight plan information and dedicated weather pages within the GTN 650/750. These new weather products include lightning, cloud tops, turbulence, icing (current and forecasted), graphical AIRMETs and centre weather advisories (CWA). This adds to the growing number of Garmin products that already support these new weather products, including Garmin Pilot on Apple mobile devices, G3X Touch and the aera 660 aviation portable.
G3X Touch flight plan editing
Pilots who have a GTN 650/750 installed alongside a G3X Touch flight display in an experimental/amateur-built aircraft now have additional flight planning and editing options. VFR flight plans can now be completed on the G3X Touch display, and then automatically synced to the GTN for added convenience.
