Garmin® Optimizes GTN™ Series For Helicopter Operations

Stocks in this article: GRMN

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced new features and capabilities of the GTN series touchscreen GPS/NAV/COM that address the specific needs of helicopter operations. Enhancements include environmental qualification meeting stringent helicopter vibration and temperature testing standards, optional Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatibility, optional built-in Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning System (HTAWS) and more.

“We recognize that helicopter operations have unique requirements, and the optimized features of the GTN are designed specifically to serve those needs, while offering all of the same capabilities and benefits that have earned extensive praise for the GTN by fixed-wing operators over the last two years,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “The speed and ease of data entry and the rapid access to information enhance situational awareness and reduce workload in the helicopter cockpit so the pilot can keep focused on the mission at hand.”

The GTN series combines touchscreen data entry and integrated radio tuning with vivid display features, including detailed mapping and the option to display and control TAS/TCAS traffic, datalink weather, weather radar and more. The GTN also supports remote transponder and audio processor control, saving valuable panel space. Garmin’s GTX 32/33/33D remote transponders (sold separately) interface with the GTN so that pilots can control transponder functions from the GTN display. Optional Extended Squitter (ES) versions of the GTX 33/33D Mode S transponders are also available, which can support ADS-B Out. Garmin’s GMA 35 remote mount audio processor (sold separately) interfaces with the GTN 750 series and makes it possible for the GTN to control the helicopter’s audio and intercom functions, and offers an optional control panel configuration to accommodate the right-seated pilot. The GMA 35 also allows for workload-reducing technologies in the cockpit like Telligence™, a speech recognition feature that lets the pilot activate certain audio panel functions using voice commands.
