Garmin® introduces the GPS 175 and GNX 375 – compelling navigators offering WAAS/LPV approaches and optional integrated ADS-B In/Out

Entry-level two-inch WAAS GPS navigators also offer wireless
connectivity and more

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the GPS 175 and GNX™ 375 GPS navigators with Localizer
Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV) approach capability. Pilots
receive the benefits of high-integrity WAAS/SBAS GPS guidance in a
compact, (6.25-inches wide by 2-inches tall) design that is both
cost-effective and easy to incorporate into an existing avionics stack.
The GPS 175 is a standalone certified IFR navigator with a vibrant,
color touchscreen display packed with advanced features and capabilities
including WAAS/LPV approaches. The GNX 375 has all of the capability of
the GPS 175 and adds Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B)
Out, as well as dual-link ADS-B In via a built-in transponder. Intended
for Class I/II aircraft that weigh 6,000 lbs./2,721 kg. or less, as well
as experimental/amateur-built (EAB) aircraft, the GPS 175/GNX 375 have
received Supplemental Type Certification (STC) and are available
immediately from Garmin Authorized Dealers for over 700 aircraft

“Many aircraft have not been equipped with WAAS/LPV or ADS-B due to the
lack of a compelling value proposition for owners of these aircraft,”
said Carl Wolf, vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “The GPS
175 and GNX 375 offer WAAS/LPV approaches and optional ADS-B In/Out with
an impressive array of features, performance, and compelling value.”

Slim and unobtrusive, the GPS 175/GNX 375 include a WAAS/SBAS GPS that
is IFR approach-capable. A vibrant, colorful touchscreen display boasts
a familiar Garmin user experience that enables quick and intuitive entry
of flight plan information, while a dual concentric knob and dedicated
home button offer added versatility when interfacing with the
touchscreen. Dedicated pages within the GPS 175 include a moving map,
flight plan, nearest, procedures, waypoint information and terrain
pages, and the GNX 375 adds traffic and weather pages. The addition of a
dedicated direct-to button on the touchscreen offers quick access to
direct airport or waypoint navigation. Customizable data fields and
short cuts on the moving map to pilot-selectable pages such as the
nearest airport allow for quick, one-touch access to important
information in-flight.

Fully WAAS IFR-approach-capable, the GPS 175/GNX 375 give pilots the
benefit of flying LPV, Lateral Performance (LP), as well as all Area
Navigation (RNAV) approaches. Many approaches offer vertical approach
guidance as low as 200-feet above ground level (AGL). Pilots can also
leverage the touchscreen and moving map to easily generate customized
holding patterns over an existing fix in the navigation database or a
user-defined waypoint and easily insert it into a flight plan. Visual
approaches are also available within the GPS 175/GNX 375 and provide
lateral and vertical approach guidance in visual flight conditions.
Visual approaches offer added assurance at unfamiliar airports or in
challenging environments to ensure the aircraft is aligned properly with
the correct runway, while also taking into consideration terrain and
obstacle avoidance.

Designed to replace earlier-generation products such as the iconic
GPS 150/155 series, the GX 50/55, as well as the KLN 89/90/94 series,
aircraft owners won’t have to make significant panel modifications to
accommodate the GPS 175/GNX 375. Aircraft owners can also retain many of
their existing flight instruments, audio panels and many legacy CDI/EHSI
indicators such as the KI 209, or easily pair it with a new or existing
flight display like the G5 electronic flight instrument. Additional
interface options include the G3X Touch™ flight display for experimental
and certificated aircraft, the GFC 500 and GFC 600 autopilots, as well
as select third-party autopilots. Additionally, precise course deviation
and roll steering outputs can be coupled to the GFC 500/GFC 600
autopilots and select third-party autopilots so procedures such as
holds, radius-to-fix (RF) legs and missed approaches may be flown

Built-in Connext® cockpit connectivity gives pilots the
benefits and efficiencies of a wireless cockpit, enabling wireless
flight plan transfer via Bluetooth® to and from compatible
portables and mobile devices running the Garmin Pilot™ and FltPlan Go
applications. GPS position information and back-up attitude can also be
used by compatible products. Because the GNX 375 has an integrated ADS-B
transponder and dual link ADS-B In, pilots can also view ADS-B traffic
and weather on compatible mobile devices and portables. Offering a
faster, more intuitive method of judging target trajectories and closure
rates, ADS-B enabled TargetTrend™ aids in the identification of real
traffic threats, while TerminalTraffic™ displays a comprehensive picture
of ADS-B-equipped aircraft and ground vehicles. Patented TargetTrend and
TerminalTraffic are exclusively available within Garmin products,
including the Garmin Pilot app. For customers that already equipped for
ADS-B, the GTX™ 345 or GDL® 88 can interface to the GPS 175
to display ADS-B In. Additional wireless benefits include Database
Concierge, which is available as an option by pairing the Flight Stream
510 with these navigators.

The GPS 175/GNX 375 offer unique benefits that only a touchscreen can
provide, such as graphical flight plan editing, allowing pilots to more
easily edit their flight plan based on an ATC amendment or weather.
Features such as FastFind simplifies flight plan entry by applying
predictive logic to suggest airports and waypoints using current GPS
location, while Smart Airspace makes it easier to identify pertinent
airspace on the moving map. The addition of SafeTaxi® airport
diagrams display runways, taxiways, Fixed Based Operators (FBO’s),
hangars and more relative to the aircraft’s location on the airport

The GPS 175 and GNX 375 are expected to be available in April and are
approved for installation in over 700 Class I/II piston aircraft models
that weigh 6,000 lbs./2,721 kg. or less and can be purchased through the
Garmin Authorized Dealer network starting at a suggested list price of
$4,995 and $7,995 respectively1. A free Garmin
GPS 175/GNX 375 trainer app is also available for download on Apple
mobile devices, which allows customers to experience the feature set of
these navigators. The GPS 175/GNX 375 are also supported by Garmin’s
award-winning aviation support team, which provides 24/7 worldwide
technical and warranty support. For additional information, visit
