Garmin® reimagines flight displays and engine monitoring solutions

G500 TXi, G600 TXi, G700 TXi and EIS TXi, scalable touchscreen solutions that redefine aircraft panel configurations

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the touchscreen G500 TXi, G600 TXi and G700 TXi flight
displays, as well as the engine information system (EIS) TXi. Boasting a
clean-sheet touchscreen design and vibrant presentation, the TXi family
incorporates greater situational awareness tools and an innovative
feature set into a contemporary avionics platform. Three displays are
available, offering optimal flexibility for panel configurations,
including a large 10.6-inch display, and two versions of 7-inch
displays, in portrait and landscape orientations. The 10.6-inch display
can operate as a primary flight display (PFD), multi-function display
(MFD) and optional integrated EIS in a highly customized package, while
the 7-inch portrait display can be dedicated to any one of those
functions. The 7-inch landscape display is available exclusively as a
dedicated EIS solution. The G500 TXi system is intended for Part 23
Class I/II aircraft under 6,000 lbs. and the G600 TXi flight displays
are intended for Class III aircraft that weigh up to 12,500 lbs. The
G700 TXi is exclusively for Part 23 Class IV and Part 25 aircraft that
weigh greater than 12,500 lbs. Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for
the G500 TXi/G600 TXi and EIS TXi systems are targeted for approval in
Q4 2017, which will feature a comprehensive approved model list (AML)
containing over 600 single-engine piston, twin-engine piston and
turboprop aircraft makes and models, offering the most configurable,
state-of-the-art glass flight display solution in the market.

“As persistent innovators within the avionics industry, we’re redefining
the flight display with the introduction of the touchscreen TXi family,”
said Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing.
“From a single display to a full suite installation comprising of four
displays, the modular, building block design of the TXi system supports
an impressive array of PFD/MFD/EIS functions and formats. With TXi,
we’re excited to bring a suite of scalable flight displays that fit the
panel and mission of a wide range of aircraft on the market today.”

Vibrant, state-of-the-art touchscreen display

The TXi family incorporates a familiar touchscreen design with modern
processors that support improved map and chart rendering, faster panning
and contemporary single-finger zoom and pinch-to-zoom gestures. Through
any combination of the touchscreen or dual concentric knobs, pilots can
quickly access and view flight information at a glance. Modernized
displays and large fonts offer improved readability, while the
simplistic user-interface helps reduce overall pilot workload. Pilots
will also appreciate a familiar in-flight experience behind the TXi
series as the user interface is harmonious with multiple Garmin
products, such as the GTN™ 650/750 touchscreen navigators.

Greater scalability, building block design and simplified upgrades

Multiple panel configurations and display orientations allow pilots and
aircraft owners to better leverage their current or future avionics
investment. Three display formats support 26-approved cockpit
configurations and over 600 aircraft makes/models. Installation
configurations vary as the TXi family is also capable of displaying
engine information on a dedicated 7-inch display or in split-screen mode
on the 10.6-inch display. Up to four displays can be installed in a
single cockpit, offering superior scalability in hundreds of aircraft.

Contributing to a streamlined installation and simplified maintenance,
the TXi displays are available with integrated attitude and heading
reference system (AHRS) and a display-mounted air data computer (ADC),
typically alleviating the need to separately locate, mount and wire
these sensors. As an additional option for remote mounting, a combined
air data and attitude heading reference system (ADAHRS) is available or
AHRS and ADC are available separately. Installation is further minimized
for aircraft with an existing G500/G600 as the TXi series are compatible
with previously installed Garmin sensors. The TXi family will also
interface with the new GFC 600 autopilot and is compatible with a wide
range of additional third-party autopilots available on the market.

Industry-first touchscreen EIS solutions

Available as an integrated solution within the 10.6-inch G500 TXi and
G600 TXi system or as a standalone 7-inch EIS display, the TXi series
display real-time engine indications in an easy-to-read format. The TXi
family supports various features, including lean assist mode,
pilot-configurable advisories and more, providing pilots with the
opportunity to achieve greater fuel economy, improved engine efficiency
and superior engine operation. Compatible with single-engine and
twin-engine normally aspirated or turbo-charged aircraft, the EIS TXi
system supports Lycoming or Continental 4/6-cylinder engines, offering a
broad range of aircraft compatibility. The integrated EIS TXi solution
also allows for a variety of integration possibilities with the G500 TXi
and G600 TXi glass flight displays.

When the EIS TXi system is paired with a GTN 650/750 and Flight Stream
510, Connext® automatically downloads engine and other flight
information to the Garmin Pilot™ app on an Apple mobile device, which is
then synced to®. The flyGarmin®
website allows pilots to view information such as track logs, cylinder
head temperatures (CHT), exhaust gas temperatures (EGT), oil
temperatures and more. Pilots can also view flight parameters such as
altitude and airspeed alongside an interactive moving map on the
website. In addition to wireless engine and flight data downloads to
Garmin Pilot, data can also be logged and stored on an SD card within

Connext wireless connectivity

When the TXi series is paired with a GTN 650/750 touchscreen navigator,
Connext wireless connectivity offers additional capabilities. Flight
Stream 510 is an option with the GTN 650/750, which enables Database
Concierge, the wireless transfer of aviation databases from the Garmin
Pilot app on a mobile device to a GTN and the TXi system. Flight Stream
510 also supports the sharing of a breadth of information with
compatible mobile devices running Garmin Pilot or ForeFlight Mobile,
including two-way flight plan transfer, traffic, weather, GPS
information and back-up attitude information as available.

Best in class reversionary mode – say goodbye to standbys

In configurations where multiple displays are installed, the TXi series
offer reversionary mode as a single system is capable of displaying all
pertinent flight information, including EIS when installed.
Additionally, the 7-inch TXi displays are compatible with an optional
back-up battery, which can power the display for 30-minutes in the event
the aircraft electrical system fails. Aircraft owners that install a
dual 7-inch G500 TXi system on the pilot’s side of the cockpit, with
dual ADAHRS and a back-up battery can also forego the requirement for
standby flight instruments.

Next generation HSI adds mapping

The TXi family boasts a geographical map overlay within the horizontal
situation indicator (HSI) on the PFD, which also supports the overlay of
NEXRAD, Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather, SafeTaxi®
airport diagrams, traffic, terrain and more. For example, pilots
can overlay terrain within the HSI map, while simultaneously viewing
traffic and flight plan information without significantly diverting
their attention away from the PFD. It is also easy to navigate within
the HSI map as pilots can simply zoom in/out on the map using a single
finger gesture.

Fully loaded functionality

The G500 TXi and G600 TXi also support additional features and options:

  • Customizable crew profiles allow pilots to configure and save settings
    such as audio volume levels, backlight settings, map configurations
    and more so they can be recalled prior to each flight.
