All the capabilities you want in a true “glass cockpit” are brought together in the G3X flight display system — with single display systems priced as low as $4,375. Designed specifically for experimental/kitplane and light sport panels, this scalable system lets you grow as your needs and budget allow.
This easy-to-install suite can contain up to three redundant PFD/MFD configurable displays, all of which contain a built-in GPS and big, bright sunlight readable 7" high-resolution WVGA screen. The G3X provides full primary flight display (PFD) attitude/directional guidance along with electronic engine gauges, terrain/obstacles alerting, geo-referenced FliteCharts® and SafeTaxi® airport diagrams. Optional SiriusXM® weather, ADS-B “In” with traffic and weather, ADS-B “Out” transponder, and angle of attack sensor can all be added easily. An affordable Garmin autopilot system is also available with advanced features like coupled approaches and auto-trim, as well as flight director, indicated air speed hold and straight and level button when installed with an optional control panel.
You can choose a single- or multi-display configuration with separate PFD and MFD displays — or you can even add a third co-pilot’s display, if desired.
The multi-tasking Garmin displays that comprise your G3X suite are scaled to fit the panels (and price ranges) of most experimental/kitbuilt and light sport aircraft.
Each display features a big 7" high-resolution WVGA screen, built-in high-sensitivity WAAS GPS receiver, rotary joystick cursor control for data entry, redundant power inputs, and soft keys for mode selection. There’s a front-loading SD™ card slot for easy updating of software and databases. Plus, a built-in aviation basemap helps provide realistic visual reference — identifying cities, roads, rivers, lakes and other guide points. You can choose topographic VFR or airway-style IFR map modes. And there’s also a built-in terrain elevation database that uses color-coding to alert you as you approach potentially hazardous terrain. Both overhead and vertical profile views of this data are graphically depicted on the terrain page.
All it takes is the addition of Garmin’s affordable GSA 28 “smart” servo units to give your G3X a range of autopilot capabilities similar to those provided by the high-end GFC 700 systems found on thousands of certified aircraft. You have the option of purchasing 1 servo (roll only), or 2 servos (pitch + roll) to add the level of capability you want. Even better, the Garmin servo provides a built-in interface to drive a customer supplied trim servo at no extra cost. When the autopilot is off, the servo provides speed scheduling for the manual trim commands. When the autopilot is on, the servo adjusts to constantly keep the aircraft trimmed. It's also the only integrated autopilot in its class to offer standalone operation in the event of EFIS display outage or shutdown. The optional GMC 305 control panel is a dedicated interface unit that provides advanced autopilot modes like indicated airspeed hold, independent flight director, and third axis yaw damper (when installed with appropriate servos). A control wheel integrated into the GMC 305 makes for easier pitch, vertical speed and airspeed adjustments. Plus, for added safety, the panel’s advanced LVL mode button commands automatic recovery from steep or unusual attitudes — enabling the autopilot to return your aircraft to straight-and-level flight. Installation of the system is simple and straightforward, with industry-standard servo mounting kits available — as well as airframe-specific versions for the popular Van’s RV series (RV-4/6/7/8/9/10 models).
