Offering an impressive array of flexible configuration display options, the G500H TXi is available as a 10.6-inch horizontal format display that can accommodate PFD information and an MFD side-by-side within the same unit. Similarly, the 7-inch portrait format displays can be individually dedicated to PFD with the HSI map or MFD functions. Another option, where panel space is limited, allows the 7-inch landscape format display to serve as a dedicated PFD with instrument tapes, a half-arc HSI and optional Garmin HSVT 3-D synthetic vision.
The system can be mixed and matched with up to two of the high-resolution touchscreen displays, and for added versatility and convenience, most control functions can be accessed by the traditional concentric knobs or touchscreen inputs.
For the ultimate in hazard avoidance solutions, the G500H TXi supports high-resolution, five-color HTAWS when it’s paired with an HTAWS-equipped GTN or GNS series navigator. Using WAAS GPS position information compared with the system’s internal databases, the HTAWS offers forward-looking avoidance capability to predict in advance where potential hazards may exist to help pilots maintain safe separation from nearby terrain, towers or obstacles. In addition to the already extensive databases found in its fixed-wing counterpart, every G500H TXi system uses a helicopter-specific obstacles database featuring over 200,000 additional low-altitude obstacles.
For added protection, an expanded version features over 700,000 miles of power lines, and the Garmin WireAware wire-strike avoidance technology uses this database to overlay powerline locations and relative altitude information on the moving map and provides both aural and visual alerting when operating near powerlines.
Designed to interface with a wide range of avionics equipment, including the GTN 650/750 series navigators, the G500H TXi provides full touchscreen continuity between the navigation, communication and flight display functions in a panel. The G500H TXi flight display system is available immediately starting at $23,495 USD for the 7-inch display and $27,495 USD for the 10.6-inch display. The G500H TXi comes with a two-year warranty and is supported by Garmin’s award-winning aviation product support team, which provides 24/7 worldwide technical and warranty support.
