We are pleased to announce the arrival of the GTX 45R and GTX 35R remote mount ADS-B transponders for experimental aircraft.
The GTX 45R and GTX 35R both meet ADS-B "Out" requirements, while the GTX 45R also offers dual-link ADS-B "In" capabilities (see below). Designed specifically for experimental amateur-built (EAB) and light sport aircraft (LSA), these new transponders are controlled by G3X™ and G3X™ Touch glass flight displays. The GTX 45R unlocks more capabilities for pilots by displaying ADS-B traffic, GPS position data and back-up attitude information within select Garmin portables and mobile applications via Bluetooth® and Connect® 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.
GTX 45R ADS-B 'In" Capabilites:
The GTX 45R pairs with G3X™ Touch, a GTN™ or GNS WAAS navigatior 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.
In addition to ADS-B traffic, the GTX 45R can wirelessly provide precise GPS position data and back-up attitude information from the built-in AHRS via Connext®. Both wireless and wired interfaces are available for the popular aera® 660 and are 796/795 aviation portables as well as wireless connectivity for mobile applications, including Garmin Pilot™ and ForeFlight Mobile. One can also take advantage of the additional wireless features, such as flight plan transfer, which is built into the G3X Touch display.
