and modernized mapping display, complete with a number of enhancements that bring new capabilities to these fl ight displays.

WireAware incorporates wire-strike avoidance

technology to graphically

overlay power line locations and altitude information on the moving map. Altitude is displayed in mean sea level (MSL) and above ground level (AGL), so power lines are easier to identify relative to the aircraft fl ight path. For added protection, Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) alerting is also available to provide visual and aural alerting.

“We continue to make signifi cant enhancements to the G500 and G600 fl ight displays to ensure those who are considering an avionics upgrade, as well as our loyal Garmin customers who have invested in a Garmin glass cockpit, have access to the most forward-thinking capability available in the industry,” said Carl Wolf, vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “This update gives these displays a fresh, new look and expanded capabilities that reduce pilot workload and improve safety by putting valuable fl ight and navigation information in the pilot’s primary fi eld of view. Backed by millions of fl ight hours, thousands of installations, hundreds of features, and an award- winning aviation product support team, the G500 and G600 fl ight displays give pilots a number of reasons to upgrade.”

Enhanced Map and Display Functionality

Newly improved dynamic maps expand upon the existing rich and vibrant mapping display capabilities within the G500/G600 glass fl ight display system. In addition to the newly enhanced display capabilities, Geo-referenced Garmin FliteCharts terminal approach procedures add an elevated level of situational awareness. When fl ying an Instrument Approach Procedure (IAP), a magenta aircraft icon is overlaid on the approach plate so pilots can easily identify their location relative to the approach.

Smart Airspace integration makes it easier for pilots to identify what airspace lies ahead. This feature conveniently highlights the airspace nearest to the aircraft’s current altitude and de-emphasizes non- pertinent airspace so pilots can quickly distinguish their location to the relevant airspace around them.

Advanced ADS-B Integration

Garmin brings Vantage ADS-B integration to the G500/G600 with the optional GDL 88 ADS-B datalink, off ering pilots the opportunity to display safety enhancing ADS-B traffi c and subscription-free Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather on these fl ight displays. TerminalTraffi c™ provides pilots with a comprehensive picture of ADS-B- equipped aircraft and ground vehicles in the airport environment. ADS-B-equipped aircraft in-fl ight are easily distinguished from ground vehicles and taxiing aircraft, which are displayed using distinct colors and symbols.

Enhanced Weather Compatibility

Ne w weather enhancements off er pilots access to optional weather products for display on the G500/G600 and provide expanded

compatibility weather radar compatibilities include:

• GWX™ 70 adds optional ground clutter suppression and turbulence detection

for additional systems. These new Support and

• GWX 68/GWX 70 enhances existing support

for multiple G500/G600

fl ight displays and GTN touch-screen avionics

• GDL 69® adds support for advanced weather products, such as icing, turbulence, PIREPs, and Canadian weather

• WX-500 Stormscope® EASA Approval

In addition to FAA approval, Garmin has received EASA validation of the U.S. Supplemental Type Certifi cate (STC) for the latest G500/G600 software. With this STC, European customers can take advantage of broad level aircraft approval using an Approved Model List (AML) containing hundreds of aircraft makes and models. Customers who have previously incorporated the G500/G600 fl ight displays can take advantage of this approval by upgrading their systems to the latest software.
