Garmin introduces the D2 Delta Aviator Watch Series

Delta seriesThree new GPS smartwatches with a variety of sizes and personalities.  Newly added the built-in wrist based Pulse Oximeter for oxygen saturation awareness, wireless connectivity with select Garmin avionics, and Garmin Pay, a contactless payment solution, with storage for music playlists and more.

D2 Delta PX  – features an elegant titanium gray diamond-like carbon (DLC) finish on a large 51 mm bezel.   Useful in-flight and during high altitude activities.  D2 Delta PX also incorporates wrist-based Pulse Ox to help monitor oxygen saturation levels.

D2 Delta S – features a stylish rose gold-tone bezel and is lighter, sleeker and smaller than previous D2 models.  D2 Delta S is ideal for smaller wrists, with 42 mm bezel and a beige leather strap.

D2 Delta – features 47 mm with a silver titanium bezel as well as a premium brown leather strap.

Enhanced Cockpit Connectivity 
The D2 Delta series seamlessly integrates with select Garmin avionics to achieve a harmonious, connected cockpit. D2 Delta can connect wirelessly to the Garmin Pilot™ app as well as the GTN™ 650/750 touchscreen navigator series or the G1000® NXi integrated flight deck via Flight Stream 510 to enable wireless flight plan transfer to the watch. When Delta 1connected, all models in the new D2 Delta series can receive additional information from compatible avionics, including GPS position information, altitude, airspeed, groundspeed, magnetic heading, outside air temperature and more.

A Little Traveling Music
Music Streaming via Bluetooth® wireless technology enriches every activity as all models of D2 Delta incorporate integrated music storage of up to 500 songs within the watch, offering phone-free listening. Download playlists from select music streaming services, or transfer customized playlists from a computer directly to the watch. Once the playlist is loaded, pilots can pair D2 Delta with a compatible Bluetooth technology-enabled Garmin audio panel such as GMA™ 245, GMA 345 or GMA 350c. D2 Delta can also be paired with a compatible Bluetooth headset or headphones (sold separately).

Delta 2

Pay with a Wave of Your Hand
All models of the D2 Delta series also include Garmin Pay™, a contactless payment solution, allowing customers to leave their cash and credit cards at home. Utilizing their Garmin Pay wallet, customers have the same benefits and rewards of the physical cards, with the convenience of having them available on their wrist.

Customizable Aviation Alerting
The D2 Delta aviator watch series also features new smartwatch alerting tailored to aviation operations. These new alerts include:
• Configurable pressure altitude notifications, which consists of a series of vibrations when arriving at a selected altitude
• A fuel tank timer that vibrates at configurable intervals to help remind pilots to switch fuel tanks while in-flight
• A cross-track error notification, which triggers a vibrating alert when pilots deviate from an active flight plan

View Weather and Log Flights
For at-a-glance updates on the weather, the D2 Delta series keeps users informed by working wirelessly with compatible internet connected smartphones. This includes access to high-resolution radar graphics (NEXRAD) and location-based meteorological reports (METARs) and terminal forecast (TAF) information — including winds, visibility, precipitation, cloud cover, temperature, dew point, barometric pressure and more. With wireless connectivity to your smartphone, the D2 Delta series also makes quick work of flight logging and other record keeping tasks. During takeoff, the watch will detect the aircraft’s change in altitude and automatically initiate the logbook function — recording date, duration, total flight time and route. Then after the flight is complete, it will sync this logbook data via the user’s smartphone to flyGaDelta 3rmin.com® and the Garmin Pilot™ app.

Advanced Multisport Features
The D2 Delta aviator watch series come preloaded with a full multisport toolset for running, golfing, cycling, skiing, workouts and more. It is also water-rated to 100 meters so it can withstand swimming and other water activities. When paired with a compatible smartphone, users can send, receive and respond to text messages and see social media updates, app alerts, calls, emails and more via the watch. Garmin Elevate™ wrist-based heart rate technology also monitors heart rate 24/7 alongside daily activity tracking. Because D2 Delta is versatile and supports a variety of activities, QuickFit® bands allow users to easily switch between stylish leather and metal accessory bands to sporty silicone in seconds and without tools.

Delta 4

Ready to Take Flight
All of the new D2 Delta models come preloaded with a worldwide aviation database and incorporate signature aviation accents, dedicated direct-to and nearest airport buttons as well as the option to input a customizable aircraft tail number on the face of the watch. A large, sunlight-readable, high-resolution color display with an LED backlight on the watch face allows pilots to view data in most lighting conditions in the cockpit. D2 Delta PX offers up to 18 hours of battery life in GPS and Pulse Ox mode and up to 20 days in smartwatch mode.

Garmin introduces the GWX 75 Aviation Weather Radar

GWX 75 radarWelcome to the newest addition to aviation weather radars, the GWX 75.

This is intended for a wide range of fixed wing aircraft and helicopters.  The Doppler-based, solid-state GWX 75 incorporates exceptional range and a new, enhanced color palette that features more color contouring than traditional aviation weather radars.

Optional features, such as turbulence detection and ground clutter suppression, are also available with GWX 75.

GWX 75 radar 2GWX 75 provides pilots an on-board source of weather information to help better analyze convective weather threats, which aids in situational awareness and helps reduce aircraft operational costs.

A high-definition color palette also helps pilots more easily interpret the severity of an individual storm cell or multiple storm cells in an area, which can incorporate four times more color contouring than typically displayed by other weather radars on the market

GWX 75 also offers reduced power consumption and extended life compared to earlier generation, magnetron-based weather radars. GWX 75 offers a range of 320 nautical miles, horizontal scan angles of up to 120 degrees and to focus on an area of interest — pilot-adjustable sector scanning. GWX 75 also retains vertical scan capabilities, which allows the pilot to focus on storm tops, gradients and storm cell build-up at various altitudes.

With the GWX 75, pilots can more confidently navigate around challenging weather with optional features such as Doppler-enabled turbulence detection and ground clutter suppression. Turbulence detection identifies turbulence in air containing certain particulates, such as precipitation, while ground clutter suppression allows GWX 75 to separate radar ground returns and remove them from the display. Additionally, our exclusive Weather Attenuated Color Highlight (WATCH®) technology helps identify shadowing effects of short-range cell activity and highlights areas where radar returns are weakened or attenuated by intense precipitation to allow for more precise weather interpretation.

Garmin Expands Approval for GFC 500 Digital Autopilot

The Garmin Flight Control has been approved in previous aircraft models.  We are excited to say that the GFC 500 has been approved in several more aircraft.G5 from Garmin

These approvals are intended for qualifying piston single-engine aircraft less than 6,000 lbs, GFC 500 delivers superior in-flight characteristics, self-monitoring capabilities and minimal maintenance needs when compared to older generation autopilot systems.

Approvals for the GFC 500 autopilot include the following:

• Cessna 210L, T210L, 210M, T210M, 210N, T210N

• Bonanza/Debonair C33, C33A, E33, E33A, E33C, F33, F33A, G33

• Grumman AA-5 Traveler, AA-5A Cheetah, AA-5B Tiger, AG-5B Tiger

Garmin has also expanded their G600 approvals.  For high performance piston and turbine aircraft that have a wide range of aircraft speed and performance characteristics, the GFC 600 incorporates solid state attitude and robust self-monitoring capabilities to provide superior autopilot performance,greater reliability and safety benefits.

Approvals for the GFC 600 autopilot include the following:

• Beechcraft Baron 58P, 58TC (1983 model year or earlier)

GFC VNAV Mode Support

New to the GFC 600 & GFC 500, pilots can select the vertical navigation (VNAV) button on either autopilot mode controller to fly a fully-coupled VNAV profile when the autopilot is paired with the GTN™ 650/750 touchscreen navigators and the G5, G500 TXi/G600 TXi or G500/G600.

Within the GTN, pilots can easily enter altitude constraints on the flight plan page to set-up a vertical descent profile. Using VNAV, pilots also experience a near-seamless transition to an arrival and instrument approach as step-down altitudes are automatically populated. When the GFC 600 & GFC 500 autopilot is fully-coupled on a VNAV descent, pilots receive the benefit of a smooth and controlled descent, so they can focus on preparing for the approach to land. For GFC 500, VNAV mode is available for all aircraft models that are currently certified. For GFC 600, VNAV mode is initially available on 58/58A Baron and Bonanza with future support for the B55/B55A Baron, Cessna 182, Cessna 340, and future models upon initial certification.
