GI-106B Indicator, with Install Kit, VOR/LOC/GS/GPS CDI, by GarminReplacing the existing GI-102A and GI-106A, the GI-106B incorporates an enhanced design and new functionality. Indicator needles are now stored out of the Pilot’s view when not in use and when invalid; replacing the glideslope and NAV invalid flags. Additionally, incandescent GPS/NAV/VLOC mode annunciators and the “TO/FROM” flag have been exchanged for LED annunciators. With the removal of complex internal electromagnetically sub-assemblies and incandescent bulbs, the new GI-106B provides improved reliability.
Existing users wishing to replace legacy GI-102A and GI-106A installations can upgrade without the need for changes to the pinout or the connection to existing GPS/NAV units. Customers who would have purchased a GI-102A will now purchase one common part number along with GI-106A customers, as the GI-106B stores the glideslope needle out of view if the glideslope signals are not connected.
