More Bluetooth® capability than any other audio panel available today, When coupled with PS Engineering's innovative approach to audio control, this user friendly PMA450B gives more what the pilot wants from their audio panel, the central nervous system of their avionics suite.

This 3rd generation PMA450 has two completely independent Bluetooth® modules, giving unprecedented connectivity capabilities. The PMA450B has the ability to work like no other panel available. Stream to a digital video camera, hear Foreflight® alerts, make a phone call to ATC for your IFR clearance, you might even listen to your favorite tunes once in a while.

PMA450B also adds flightmate®. This integrated audio alert system gives the pilot the ability to hear alerts related to aircraft conditions. NOTE, additional wiring is required to enable this capability when upgrading from either GARMIN GMA340 or PMA8000 series audio panels).

IntelliAudio® gives the pilot the capability to pay attention to the radio that is important to their flight at any one instant in time. Consider Com 1 coming from the 10 o’clock position while Com 2 is coming from the 2 o’clock position, just like being at a cocktail party, you are able to pay attention to the person who is telling you something important while ignoring the other conversations that aren’t.

The 3 Soft-key user interface is unprecedented for audio control panels. With more and more capability provided by PS Engineering's audio panels, we found it necessary to make the access to these functions easier. If you can read English you’ll be able to get all of the capability from the PMA450B without ever having to open up the User’s Guide.

This audio panel is plug ‘n play** with GARMIN’s GMA340, which makes upgrading as easy as 1-2-3. The existing wire harness and tray that is installed for the GMA340 is complete and there is nothing to add or change. Get all of the new capabilities by simply removing and replacing. A simple log book entry is all that is required.
