Avionics manufacturer Garmin announced in October ‘clean sheet’ new designs in the form of the touchscreen G500 TXi, G600 TXi and G700 TXi flight displays, as well as the engine information system (EIS) TXi

Offering vibrant presentation, the TXi family incorporates greater situational awareness tools and an innovative feature set into a contemporary avionics platform, says Garmin. Three displays are available, offering optimal flexibility for panel configurations, including a large 10.6-inch display, and two versions of seven-inch displays, in portrait and landscape orientations.

The 10.6-inch display can operate as a primary flight display (PFD), multifunction display (MFD) and optional integrated EIS in a highly customized package, while the seven-inch portrait display can be dedicated to any one of those functions. The seven-inch landscape display is available exclusively as a dedicated EIS solution.

The G500 TXi system is intended for US FAA Part 23 factory-built Class I/II aircraft under 6,000lb. and the G600 TXi flight displays are intended for Class III aircraft that weigh up to 12,500lb. The G700 TXi is exclusively for Part 23 Class IV and Part 25 aircraft that weigh greater than 12,500 lb. Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for the G500 TXi/G600 TXi and EIS TXi systems are targeted for approval in Q4 2017.

“As persistent innovators within the avionics industry, we’re redefining the flight display with the introduction of the touchscreen TXi family,” says Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing.

“With TXi, we’re excited to bring a suite of scalable flight displays that fit the panel and mission of a wide range of aircraft on the market today.”

Contributing to a streamlined installation and simplified maintenance, the TXi displays are available with integrated attitude and heading reference system (AHRS) and a display-mounted air data computer (ADC), typically alleviating the need to separately locate, mount and wire these sensors.

Installation is further minimized for aircraft with an existing G500/G600 as the TXi series are compatible with previously installed Garmin sensors. The TXi family will also interface with the new GFC 600 autopilot and is compatible with a wide range of additional third-party autopilots available on the market.

The TXi family supports various features, including lean assist mode, pilot-configurable advisories and more, providing pilots with the opportunity to achieve greater fuel economy and superior engine operation. In addition to wireless engine and flight data downloads to Garmin Pilot, data can also be logged and stored on an SD card within EIS TXi.
