Garmin® Team X introduces the GTX 45R and GTX 35R ADS-B transponders for experimental aircraft

Cost-effective remote mount transponders for G3X™ and G3X Touch are feature-rich and integrate with multiple displays

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the GTX 35R, which meets Automatic Dependent
Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out requirements and the GTX 45R that
offers ADS-B Out, as well as ADS-B In benefits. Designed specifically
for experimental amateur-built (EAB) and light sport aircraft (LSA),
these new transponders are tightly integrated and controlled by G3X and
G3X Touch systems. The GTX 45R unlocks more capabilities for pilots by
displaying ADS-B traffic, subscription-free weather1, GPS
position data and attitude information within select Garmin portables
and mobile applications via Bluetooth® and Connext®
wireless technology. Hard-wired display interfaces for the GTX 45R
include G3X Touch, the GTN™ 650/750 touchscreen series, GNS 430W/530W
navigators and select portables.

“The wildly popular GTX 345 all-in-one ADS-B transponders for certified
aircraft proved to be the all-inclusive solution that thousands of
pilots had been waiting for and now we’re bringing that same integrated
and wireless experience to the experimental market,” said Carl Wolf,
Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “The remote-mount
GTX 45R/35R transponders are lightweight, easy to install and have
greater integration potential than any other solutions on the market so
pilots can easily take advantage of the benefits offered by ADS-B at an
economical price.”

Sport aircraft owners can take advantage of a straightforward,
easy-to-install transponder that meets modern airspace initiatives
around the world. Configuration and control of the remote-mounted
GTX 45R/35R is provided through the display of G3X or G3X Touch systems,
which offers seamless cockpit integration. The GTX 45R interfaces with
G3X Touch, the GTN 650/750 and GNS 430W/530W to display ADS-B traffic
and subscription-free Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B)
weather on these systems, while the GTX 35R offers a simple path to
achieve ADS-B Out. Up to three G3X Touch displays and a GTN or GNS WAAS
navigator can be hard-wired to the GTX 45R to display ADS-B In benefits
simultaneously. For aircraft without a compatible position source, the
cost-effective GPS 20A WAAS GPS position source can be utilized by the
GTX 45R/35R to meet ADS-B Out requirements.

The GTX 45R interfaces with G3X Touch, GTN or a GNS WAAS navigator to
display ADS-B In traffic, incorporating exclusive features such as
TargetTrend™ and TerminalTraffic™. The GTX 45R includes a dual-link
ADS-B receiver that provides pilots with a complete picture of
ADS-B-equipped traffic, while subscription-free FIS-B weather can be
overlaid across all of the displays on top of dynamic moving maps with
reference to airspace, terrain, flight plan information and more. FIS-B
weather products include NEXRAD, METARs, TAFs, PIREPs, winds and
temperatures aloft, NOTAMs, AIRMETs and SIGMETs.

In addition to ADS-B traffic and FIS-B weather, the GTX 45R can
wirelessly provide precise GPS position data and attitude information.
Both wireless and wired interfaces are available for the popular aera®
660 and aera 796/795 aviation portables, as well as wireless
connectivity for mobile applications including Garmin Pilot™ and
ForeFlight Mobile. Customers can also take advantage of additional
wireless features, such as flight plan transfer, built into the G3X
Touch display.
