Garmin® announces availability of the G700 TXi flight display

Retrofit solutions target popular Cessna Citation business jets

OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the availability of the G700 TXi touchscreen flight display
for popular Cessna Citation business jet models. The G700 TXi is
exclusively designed to meet the certification requirements of Part 23
Class IV and Part 25 transport category aircraft. The initial
Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the G700 TXi flight display will
be approved for select Cessna Citation II/SII and Citation V aircraft,
is available from JETTECH and can be installed across the Garmin dealer

“The G700 TXi series has redefined aircraft and helicopter cockpits and
we’re excited to extend this modern upgrade to now include this class of
business aircraft,” said Carl Wolf, vice president of aviation marketing
and sales. “The availability of the G700 TXi is a significant
achievement for Garmin as this is the first public validation of the TXi
series in this class of aircraft. Alongside JETTECH, we are excited to
provide a dedicated upgrade path for some of the most popular business
jets in the market.”

This certification of the G700 TXi is comprised of a single or dual
10.6-inch flight display that boasts a bright, LCD touchscreen design
and features dual concentric knobs for added convenience and versatility
when interfacing with the system. Because the G700 TXi is paired with
dual GTN™ 650/750 touchscreen navigators, pilots receive flight
management system (FMS) functionality through an intuitive touchscreen
interface. The G700 TXi also integrates seamlessly with these
navigators, offering even more operational capability, including fully
coupled LPV/WAAS approach guidance, as well as the option to
display vertical navigation (VNAV) guidance to fly complex RNAV arrival

Using the latest display technologies, the G700 TXi system improves
dispatch rates, reduces aircraft downtime, as well as overall life cycle
costs. Modern, solid-state sensors utilized by the G700 TXi system offer
improved reliability over heavier, maintenance-prone legacy
instrumentation. Flight data logging maximizes aircraft availability and
productivity as system parameters, autopilot status and more are
recorded on a removeable SD card within the G700 TXi for quick and easy
identification and interpretation of maintenance-related issues.

Pilots will appreciate a familiar in-flight experience between the G700
TXi flight displays and the GTN touchscreen navigators as the user
interface is harmonious across both products. New features and optional
capabilities of the G700 TXi flight display include:

  • HSI mapping offers a multifunction display-like perspective map view
    on the PFD, helping pilots to better visualize traffic, terrain,
    weather and more as it relates to a flight plan without diverting
    their attention away from the PFD.
  • Customizable crew profiles allow pilots to configure and save settings
    such as map configurations and audio volume levels so they can easily
    be recalled prior to each flight.
  • Synthetic vision technology (SVT™) is standard and uses sophisticated
    graphics modeling to present a 3D depiction of terrain, obstacles,
    traffic and the runway environment on the PFD.
  • TCAS II Resolution Advisory (RA) display offers pilots visual and
    aural instructions to avoid immediate traffic conflicts.
  • TAWS-A and TAWS-B are available as options.
  • Various global datalink weather products are accessible when paired
    with the optional GSR® 56.
  • Support for Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) operations is
  • Pilots can view Garmin FliteCharts terminal approach procedures or
    optional Jeppesen approach charts.
  • Connext® wireless cockpit connectivity with added Database
    Concierge and flight plan transferring via Flight Stream 510 is
    available with a compatible tablet or smartphone and conveniently
    uploads and syncs database and flight plan information.
  • ADS-B In/Out display is standard, featuring patented
    TargetTrend™ and TerminalTraffic™.

The G700 TXi flight display is available from JETTECH and select Garmin
dealers and will be approved for the Cessna Citation II/SII and Citation
V equipped with the Sperry SPZ 500 autopilot. Additional aircraft
approvals are expected in the future. Visit the Garmin static display
