Garmin’s New Txi Line – Reimagining Flight Displays
Garmin’s newly released line of flight displays puts a revolution in flight technology at your fingertips. With clean-sheet TXi designs, Garmin has created a smart, scalable way to upgrade your aircraft and help improve the safety of each flight.
The modular building blocks of the TXi series allow everything from a single display to a full-suite installation of 4 displays in your panel, comprising PFD/MFD/EIS functions. So no matter what your mission or price range, you will find an option that fits your panel.
Three displays are available, a 10.6” display, and two versions of 7” display, in portrait and landscape orientations. The 10.6” display can serve as a PFD, MFD or EIS display, while the 7” display can be dedicated to any one of these functions.
The G500 TXi system is intended for Part 23 Class I/II aircraft under 6,000 lbs. and the G600 TXi flight displays are intended for Class III aircraft that weigh up to 12,500 lbs. The G700 TXi is exclusively for Part 23 Class IV and Part 25 aircraft that weigh greater than 12,500 lbs – pricing and availability will be announced at a later date.
Supplemental Type Certificate for the G500 TXi/G600 TXi and EIS TXi systems are targeted for approval by December 2017, and will feature a comprehensive approved model list containing over 600 single-engine piston, twin-engine piston and turboprop aircraft makes and models.
With the TXi line, Garmin has come up with the most configurable, state-of-the-art glass flight display solution in the market. In fact, there are 26 approved cockpit configurations supported by the three display formats.
