Master the Garmin GTN 650, 750 and Xi navigators

The GTN Essentials 2.0 eLearning course provides comprehensive training for GTN 650, GTN 750 and GTN Xi series touchscreen navigators. Completing this course provides a pilot who is new to these products — or an experienced user desiring a refresher — instruction on best practices for operational use. GPS 175, GNX 375 and GNC 355 users will also benefit from this course, as these devices share many features and a similar user interface with the GTN and GTN Xi series. Throughout the course, common scenarios will be used to demonstrate how to successfully use these products in-flight — including typical high-altitude, medium altitude and helicopter scenarios. When used in combination with the free Garmin GTN PC or iPad trainers, additional scripted scenarios and detailed guidance provide opportunities for practice and familiarity.

Learn at your own pace

The GTN Essentials eLearning course brings the Pilot’s Guide to life with videos, animations, and tips and tricks. The course takes you logically through the features of the GTN system and provides demonstrations of some commonly used techniques.

The course is divided into 8 lessons with "bite-sized" videos that enable you to tailor your studying and maximize the time you have available. The course allows each user to pause, as necessary, and seamlessly resume a lesson. You can re-take the entire course or specific lessons as often as you want.

Good prep for actual use
Very helpful in orienting to and then practicing with the GTN 750 Xi. Felt much more comfortable in the plane once I had gone through this course and then practiced on the simulator. So when, on my first flight, I had to do a hold and an instrument approach (the hold because ATC forgot to descend me even after I asked), I was ready and confident. My only complaint was that each video had a 15 second intro that was the same. I spent lots of minutes watching the same intro. I recommend doing the long one at the beginning of each section, and then have a short intro for the modules within the section.

Garmin GTN Training
I don't normally write reviews, but when I decided to purchase this product there were only two reviews, and one was extremely negative. The reviewer attacked the presenter in the course, and the Garmin product endorsement materials built into the training. Since I couldn't find any real free training for my GTN 650 (my plane has been in the avionics shop for a couple of months, and I am anxiously awaiting my new gps/nav/com) on YouTube, I broke down and bought this Sporty's course even with the only written review being so negative. I went through the first module of training segments before writing this review because I wanted to be a fair and knowledgeable reviewer. What I found, was what I had hoped for. This course is just as good as the other Sporty's courses I have purchased which include IFR and Weather training. I don't find the presenter annoying at all. His pace is spot on, the video footage is very professional, and the content of the course seems to be complete. I don't know what else one might expect from Sporty's and Garmin, but I found this course to be everything I hoped it would be. If you are thinking of purchasing this very expensive equipment, I would certainly recommend this comparatively inexpensive training course to help you learn to use it to it's potential!

Presenter is terrible, and doesn't hold my attention. Then between modules, Garmin decided to force its captive audience to have to listen to the excessively long and repetitive intro jingle, over and over again, which gets really old after the first half dozen times. Don't get me wrong, I really wanted to like this program, but I doubt I'll get through it all. I'm less than a quarter of the way through and I just can't get past the presenters voice and hand gestures. You know the kind that are ill-timed and unnecessary. Also would have been nice if Garmin separated the 750/650 discussion. I don't have a 750, therefore knowing its different page layout is only confusing when I am only interested in the 650 screens. Sorry, but I can't recommend this, I'd rather have my money back.
