Large, bright screen with lots of buttons.

Combining advanced glass cockpit features with a Garmin’s biggest screen ever, the GPSMAP 696 is truly a portable multi-function display.

Here’s why you’ll love it

  • Huge 7” screenTerrain alerts and simulated instruments have never looked better, and charts can be shown at almost full resolution. The screen is also extremely bright, for superior readability in bright sunlight.
  • Digital Charts. Finally, an easy way to view digital charts in the cockpit, with no extra wires or CDs to load. The 696 comes preloaded with all FAA/NACO approach plates, including arrivals, departures, airport diagrams and approaches.
  • XM Weather (Optional). Nobody does datalink weather better than Garmin. Just plug in the GXM 42 Weather Antenna (sold separately) and you can display NEXRAD radar, satellite images, METARs, TAFs, TFRs, and much more (requires separate subscription).
  • Simulated instrument panel. Pilots have come to love Garmin’s simulated instrument panel, which displays GPS-derived instruments for speed, altitude, vertical speed, bank angle and heading.
  • Terrain alerts. A dedicated terrain page shows nearby terrain and obstacles, and a side view of upcoming terrain. Plus, pop-up alerts warn you of potential danger no matter what page you are viewing.
  • AOPA Airport Directory. The most comprehensive collection of airport and facility information, including FBO services, ground transportation, hotels, area attractions and much more.
  • Taxiway Maps. SafeTaxi™ maps show you detailed airport diagrams for over 650 airports—with your airplane’s position overlaid on the map.
  • Truly Portable. Unlike hard to use computers or electronic flight bags, the 696 includes an internal battery and internal GPS antenna. You can fly completely wire-free if needed.

Measures 5 3/4”l x 7 3/4”h x 1 1/2”d; weighs 2.3 lbs.

A complete portable GPS
It's nice, however some features on the 296 were not brought back, like the "Turn" Data Field option in the 296, "L 2 degrees or R 3 degrees". It has a lot of the 296, because it's not touch screen and that is great. I had a 500, and hated it. The 296 was greatest for me, but it has that turning off problem, and it is a small screen, so I'm trying this one and so far so good, except for the "Turn" Data field option. Can someone explain, why it was eliminated?
