Garmin GTN 650Xi Series

Call For Info

We are pleased to introduce the Garmin GTN 650Xi series, the next generation of in-flight navigation technology. Designed as a direct slide-in upgrade to the previous generation GTN 650, pilots can preserve their panel and modernise the cockpit with the new GTN 650Xi. Available in five different versions, the GTN Xi series matches its predecessor in providing options with or without Comm or Nav radios. The GTN 650Xi has received FAA STC approval and are available immediately for fixed-wing single-engine and multi-engine piston, turbine and experimental aircraft, with helicopter, business & EASA registered aircraft approvals soon to follow.

Modern processing power and state-of-the-art hardware within GTN 650Xi supports faster map rendering and smoother panning throughout the touchscreen navigator. It boasts a large, ultra-high-resolution display and wide viewing angle that offers superior readability in the cockpit. The displays initialise within seconds of start-up, providing immediate access to frequencies and flight plan information, saving valuable time in the aircraft. Preserving the same form factor as the previous generation GTN 650, the 2.65-inch-tall GTN 650Xi offers an intuitive touchscreen design with a dedicated direct-to button and a dual concentric knob that provide added convenience when interfacing with the display.

Retaining all the features of the GTN 650, the GTN Xi series adds a vibrant display and vivid colours that enhance the contemporary look of the new navigators. When installed alongside a G500 TXi or G600 TXi flight display, the GTN Xi series brings a new level of modernisation to the cockpit. Highly complementary, the GTN Xi and the TXi flight displays share similarities in display, appearance and hardware qualities. For example, both products feature an angular bezel with a flush glass display - so the pilot has a near-seamless experience when transitioning between the touchscreen flight display and the navigator.

The GTN 650Xi offers advanced navigation functions, including ILS and LPV instrument approach procedures, as well as visual approach guidance. Based on a published glide path angle or a three-degree glide slope from the threshold of the runway, visual approaches also consider terrain and obstacle clearance to assist pilots in flying a stabilised approach to the runway in visual flight conditions. Approach types that incorporate radius-to-fix (RF) leg types are also supported by the GTN Xi series. Additional capabilities include the option to add a published or custom holding procedure, vertical navigation (VNAV), graphical flight plan editing on the moving map and more.

The colourful, multifunction display-like map allows pilots to better visualise their dynamic position relative to potential hazards, such as terrain, weather and traffic. Geo-referenced instrument approach procedures can be overlaid on the map page, offering superior situational awareness when transitioning from the enroute to approach phase of flight. Terrain alerting is included within the GTN Xi series and further enhances situational awareness by using its internal terrain and obstacle database to provide audible and visual terrain proximity alerts, including, "terrain ahead, pull up" and "obstacle ahead, pull up." Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning System (HTAWS), TAWS-A and TAWS-B are also available as options.

Superior integration with an array of avionics on the market make the GTN 650Xi a simple and straightforward solution to incorporate into any cockpit. Options for remote audio panel or transponder display and control allow aircraft owners to simplify their panel. When paired with a Garmin autopilot, such as the GFC 500 or GFC 600, pilots can fly fully coupled VNAV profiles and instrument approach procedures. Pilot workload-reducing features such as Telligence voice control is also available within GTN Xi when paired with the optional GMA 35c. When paired with a GSR 56 Iridium datalink, global text and voice calling can be completed through the touchscreen display on the navigator.

Wireless connectivity is available with the optional Flight Stream 510, allowing pilots to connect their mobile devices running the Garmin Pilot and FltPlan Go applications to the GTN 650Xi. When connected to the navigator, pilots can save time in the cockpit by wirelessly transferring aviation databases and flight plans from their mobile devices to the navigator. Flight Stream 510 also supports the sharing of traffic, weather, GPS position information and more. The GTN Xi series is also compatible with the cost-effective Garmin navigation database.

Designed as a direct slide-in upgrade to the previous generation GTN series, the GTN Xi series offers an easy upgrade path for customers equipped with an existing GTN navigator. Because most settings are stored on the configuration module, only Comm and Nav configuration settings must be manually entered during the upgrade. Previous feature enablements will also transfer automatically to the new GTN Xi system. Please note that pilot-controlled settings are not transferred as part of the upgrade. New software v6.70 is also available for the original GTN series, enabling crossfill with theGTN Xi series. Because normal installation components will not be needed for this upgrade, GTN Xi kits including only the GTN Xi unit and a product info kit are available.
