Garmin’s ADS-B solutions comprise of several configurations that are
optimized for each individual aircraft type. For non-TCAS II aircraft,
the GTX 345R/GTX 335R ADS-B transponders provide operators with an
all-in-one, remote-mount solution and include ADS-B In/Out with options
for built-in WAAS. ADS-B Out requirements are easily met with the GTX
335R, while the GTX 345R ADS-B In/Out transponder unlocks more
capabilities. The GTX 345R receives ADS-B traffic, subscription-free
Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather, GPS position data
and back-up attitude information for display within the popular Garmin
Pilot™ and ForeFlight Mobile apps via Bluetooth® and Connext®
wireless technology.

TCAS-II-equipped aircraft can utilize the GDL® 88 ADS-B
datalink and GTX 3000 Mode S Extended Squitter (ES) transponder to
economically achieve ADS-B Out requirements. The GTX 3000 leverages the
GDL 88’s internal WAAS/SBAS receiver to broadcast aircraft identity,
state and intent information (DO-260B compliant) to air traffic control
and provides operators with a cost-effective WAAS position source.
Adding Garmin’s Flight Stream wireless datalink to these solutions
offers crewmembers quick and easy wireless access to beneficial FIS-B
weather and traffic on approved mobile devices in the cockpit (available
on select aircraft).
