Bringing true “glass cockpit” capabilities to the aircraft you already have, Garmin’s G600 is a retrofit breakthrough. Now, you can upgrade your avionics panel with a G600 suite and start reaping the benefits of enhanced situational awareness, safety and pilot workload reduction. The dual-screen G600 works with your Garmin avionics stack, pairing both a primary flight display (PFD) and a multi-function (MFD) display in a single 10-inch wide bezel – to provide a fully TSO’d upgrade option for your cockpit. And with software assurance levels required for FAR Part 23 Class 3 aircraft, G600 is the ideal solution.

Garmin SVT™ Now Comes Standard

A scaled version of Garmin’s SVT™ Synthetic Vision Technology comes pre-installed on your G600. Using sophisticated graphics modeling to create a 3-D topographic landscape from the G600’s terrain alerting database, SVT provides a “virtual reality” perspective view of ground and water features, obstacles and traffic – all shown in relative proximity to your aircraft. So, rather than looking at the PFD, you’ll have a sense of looking through it, to “see” what lies beyond the nose of your aircraft. SVT clearly enhances your view of primary flight data by giving it a realistic visual frame of reference – especially in solid IFR or nighttime/marginal VFR conditions.

Enhance Situational Awareness

In addition to the graphical terrain and obstacle alerting information provided by SVT, you can also augment the G600 with optional Class-B TAWS (Terrain Awareness and Warning System) for an extra margin of safety in the air. Initial Garmin FliteCharts® approach plates for the U.S. come pre-installed on G600 (the charts will disable when data is over 6 months out-of-date). And, as an option, Jeppesen-style ChartView™ instrument approach plates and airport surface charts can be added by purchasing a ChartView unlock card as well as a JeppView™ for MFD subscription – enabling you to overlay your aircraft’s position on the MFD approach display. Once you’ve landed, built-in SafeTaxi® diagrams provide detailed visual guidance to your tie-down ramp or hangar at over 900 U.S. airports.

Enjoy Advanced AHRS

In place of costly-to-maintain gyro instruments, the G600 uses Garmin’s super-reliable GRS 77 Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS). Combining inputs from GPS, magnetometer and air data computer, the AHRS provides an accurate digital output and referen­cing of your aircraft position, rate, vector and acceleration data. It’s even able to restart and properly realign itself while the aircraft is moving.

Synch Up with Your Autopilot

G600 is designed to interface with most popular GA autopilots and flight directors. The GAD 43 adapter unit (provided with the G600) offers enhanced autopilot interface – allowing AHRS to provide attitude information to your autopilot in place of a gyro-mechanical ADI. The GAD 43 can emulate the many existing gyro interfaces, using far more reliable AHRS data to provide the attitude, heading, yaw input, baro correction, and alerting cues to the autopilot. This typically eliminates the need to keep that costly-to-maintain gyro ADI as your autopilot reference for the G600 glass cockpit.

Add Weather, Traffic and More

Optional sensors and services let you add capabilities to your G600 for better-informed weather and traffic decisions. For example, digital on-board weather radar functionality can be added with Garmin’s GWX 68 (software interface is included; LRU sold separately). Also available is Garmin’s GDL 69/69A series XM receiver. It offers up-to-the-moment weather data and NEXRAD coverage for the U.S. via XM Satellite Radio datalink (XM subscription required). There’s also a user interface with the GDL 69A that lets you enjoy over 150 channels of inflight audio program­ming with a subscription to XM Radio. And for help in watching nearby traffic, you can access Traffic Information Service (TIS) alerts on your G600, simply by adding a GTX Mode S transponder. Or, you can select from available TAS and TCAS systems, including Garmin’s GTS™ family of advanced traffic surveillance products.

A Smarter Way to Retrofit

Whether you fly a typical GA piston single or twin – or even a larger Class 3 aircraft (piston or turbine aircraft between 6,000 lbs. and 12,500 lbs. MTOW) Garmin’s G600 is the perfect retrofit option. With Supplemental Type Certification (STC) provided under an FAA Approved Model List, Garmin offers detailed G600 installation specs for over 800 models of aircraft. Just see your authorized Garmin installation center for specific G600 compatibility information.
