New G5/G3X Features

New G5/G3X Features

Garmin is pleased to announce the addition of new features and enhancements to the G5 electronic flight instrument for certified and experimental aircraft, including the display of outside air temperature (OAT), true airspeed (TAS), winds and more. New wireless flight and engine data streaming as well as new display configurations are also coming soon to G3X Touch flight displays for experimental aircraft.
 
The G5 electronic flight instrument will soon be capable of displaying outside air temperature (OAT) and true airspeed (TAS) using a temperature probe and the new Garmin GAD™ 13 adapter. Similar to other Garmin products, OAT displays along the bottom of the airspeed indicator, while TAS is displayed on the top of the airspeed indicator. When G5 is configured as a directional gyro (DG) or horizontal situation indicator (HSI), wind speed and direction is also displayed in the upper left
corner of the G5. For standalone G5 installations, the GAD 13 and a temperature probe are required. For aircraft where G5 is paired with a compatible PFD such as G3X Touch, G5 will display this information with a software update. New for
experimental aircraft, G5 can also display density altitude below the altimeter while the aircraft is on the ground.

The G5 electronic flight instrument for certificated aircraft can soon be paired with dual digital Garmin navigation sources, such as a GTN™ 650/750 or GPS 175/GNC® 355/GNX™ 375, and manually switch between the sources within the G5. Please note, the GFC 500 autopilot is the only autopilot approved to be used when dual navigation sources are connected to G5. For VFR installations, pilots can also use a Garmin portable to display lateral course deviation information on the G5.
 
G3X Touch for Experimental Aircraft is also adding a new display configuration - a standalone Multifunction Display (MFD) with an optional Engine Indication System (EIS). This display configuration is a natural addition to thousands of aircraft with a single or dual G5 installation. All three display types – 10.6” Landscape, 7” Portrait and 7” Landscape – support the new standalone MFD configuration. The MFD window of G3X Touch is capable of displaying maps, charts, weather, traffic, terrain and more, alongside engine information.
