Garmin® TeamX introduces new G3X™ Touch display for experimental aircraft

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced a new addition to the G3X Touch glass flight display family,
the 7-inch G3X Touch portrait display. For first generation G3X
customers, the new 7-inch portrait display offers an easy upgrade path
as the existing footprint is easily adaptable to the new display and
includes all of the same features as the popular G3X Touch 10.6-inch and
7-inch landscape displays. Additionally, the new GMU 11 magnetometer
allows for more flexible and cost-effective installation options for
experimental amateur-built (EAB) and light sport aircraft (LSA).

“TeamX, our dedicated team of passionate pilots and home builders
continue to bring more aircraft panel options and modern flight display
solutions, along with economical pricing packages that suit every panel
and budget,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and
marketing. “We continue to serve the experimental amateur-built market
in a superior way by providing flexible display configurations alongside
an advanced feature set, offering our loyal customers what they have
been asking for – and more.”

The most scalable flight display system for experimental aircraft

The G3X Touch glass flight display family has grown from the 10.6-inch
and 7-inch landscape displays, to now include the 7-inch portrait G3X
Touch. Systems support seamless integration throughout the cockpit as up
to four G3X Touch displays of varying sizes can be incorporated into a
single aircraft. The 7-inch portrait display can be used as a primary
flight display (PFD) or multi-function display (MFD) when paired with
multiple G3X Touch displays or as a single standalone screen comprising
of a combination PFD/MFD. A dual concentric knob and dedicated nearest,
direct-to, menu and back buttons also offer improved efficiency in
performing common in-flight functions, such as direct-to navigation,
selecting altitude, changing heading or radio tuning. Integration
options include the display of engine indication system (EIS)
information, ADS-B traffic and weather, SiriusXM aviation weather1,
transponder, remote COMM radio, audio panel, autopilot and more.
Additional features such as built-in Bluetooth®, wireless
flight plan transfer and additional connectivity with Connext®,
synthetic vision (SVX), as well as worldwide VFR/IFR charts add to the
G3X Touch feature set.

Aircraft owners can easily upgrade a G3X system to G3X Touch using all
of the existing sensors and pin-compatible connectors, so there is no
need to replace any equipment behind the panel. For aircraft where space
constraints are of concern, the portrait 7-inch display offers more
installation flexibility in panel design for experimental or light sport

New, builder-friendly GMU 11 magnetometer

Utilizing the new GMU 11 magnetometer, aircraft builders can incorporate
this new economical solution to integrate with G3X Touch or the G5
electronic flight instrument to display magnetic heading. The GMU 11 is
smaller, lighter and can be mounted in multiple directions for easier
installation. For aircraft with more than one G3X Touch display or G5
electronic flight instrument, a single GMU 11 magnetometer is capable of
supplying magnetic heading to more than one display simultaneously.

TeamX is committed to offering industry-leading solutions to the
experimental market, which is backed by Garmin’s award-winning aviation
support team that provides 24/7 worldwide technical and warranty
support. The 7-inch G3X Touch portrait display and GMU 11 magnetometer
are expected to be available in Q2 2017. A single G3X Touch display
starts at $2,995*. For additional information contact our dedicated team
