Garmin’s New 7-Inch G3X For Experimental, LSA Now Available
November 17, 2014 - Garmin announced today that its new 7-inch G3X Touch display option for experimental amateur-built and light-sport aircraft is now available. First announced and demoed at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014, this newest addition to the G3X Touch family features a high-resolution touch-screen display that complements the existing 10.6-inch G3X Touch system, offering new panel design options and added redundancy.
When paired with a 10.6-inch display, the 7-inch G3X Touch system can serve as a dedicated display for a variety of features including traffic awareness, full-screen moving map, geo-referenced charts, engine information, and even serve as a back-up primary flight display (PFD).
Synthetic vision (SVX) comes standard on G3X Touch, providing a rich, three-dimensional depiction of terrain, obstacles, water features, the runway environment, and more. VFR sectionals, IFR enroute charts, geo-referenced SafeTaxi airport diagrams and FliteCharts terminal procedures for the U.S., Europe, and Canada are offered on all G3X Touch displays, providing pilots with the charts they need for both VFR and IFR flight.
A version of G3X Touch offers access to SiriusXM satellite radio and SiriusXM Aviation weather, including weather products such as NEXRAD, METARs, TAFs, TFRs, winds aloft, and more (SiriusXM subscription required).
A well-equipped, 7-inch G3X Touch system, which includes SVX, video input, a built-in WAAS GPS receiver, ADAHRS, magnetometer, OAT probe, interactive mapping and more, starts at $4,599. Customers can also get lower database prices starting at $49.99 for G3X and G3X Touch. Visit the G3X Touch website for additional information.
