It's bringing along a lot of attention to the aircraft industry by being the first touchscreen in the avionics market with these features. With a 4.9 inch high resolution TFT display, the GTN 650 touchscreen is easy to use and allows for pilots to be only two touches away from any of the major functions. With just a swipe of the finger a pilot can scan through detailed maps, weather information, and way points. With a beveled edge on the front of the unit, pilots are able to grip the GTN 650 while in both smooth and turbulent flight conditions. The normal concentric flight knobs are still there for use if the pilot so chooses.
Graphical Mapping and Enhanced Airspace Awareness
With high resolution terrain mapping the GTN 650 brings a greater enhanced situational awareness. Topography features, cities, airports, terminal areas, SUAs and more are all displayed on the Garmin GTN 650. Pilots will also find the optional Class W TAWS alerting to enhance airspace awareness. Whenever on the ground the Garmin SafeTaxi US airport diagrams provide the maps of runways, taxiways, FBOs and also hangers. With the optional GDL 69 Series datalink receiver combined with the GTN 650 and also XM subscription you can overlay the actual NEXRAD radar around the moving map display. Other options include adding a Garmin traffic system to determine and map other planes in the vicinity. The GTN 650 also can control the GTX 32/33 remote transponder.
Tons of Navigation Features
The GTN 650's touchscreen user interface and simple to use navigation system allow aircraft pilots quick access to vital information. With graphical trip planning features built right into the GTN 650 the whole aircraft course can be altered and modified to incorporate additional way points or make simple changes to the present ones. Pilots can even insert Victor and jet airways into the system. The "Rubber Band" characteristic of the Garmin GTN 650 is brand new to the world of aircraft navigation. With the GTN's "Rubber Band" feature aircraft pilots can quickly alter any leg from the route and make adjustments to the deviation or ATC amendments rapidly as well as effortlessly. The most recent and closest airports can be added as way points or even "Direct To" destinations. With poor climate or IFR conditions the GTN 650 enables numerous landing options. The SBAS/WAAS-certified, 15 Channel GPS receiver reports 5 position updates for each second. That allows for GPS guided LPV glide path instrument approaches right down to an unbelievable 200 feet. The Garmin GTN 650 system includes the entire Vhf routing functions using a 200 Chanel VOR/ILS together with localizer and glidescope. When the pilot inputs procedures for that GTN it will then preload NAV frequencies. The pilot can then manually switch to and can auto select the VHF NAV source for ILS approaches. The GTN enables specific course change and roll steering outputs which can be coupled to select autopilots in order that IFR airline flight procedures may be flown instantly, automatically. The ARINC 424 leg types (other than RF legs) are included. When the GTN 650 is combined with a G500/G600 Flight Display the two can fly fully coupled missed approaches including heading legs.
