The new Garmin G600 TXi has multiple variation and options available. Please call one of our avionics specialists to assemble the system that best fits you and your aircraft.
Scalable Glass Cockpit Touchscreen Solutions
G600 TXi is a revolution in retrofit flight displays. It boasts a clean-sheet touchscreen design and builds on the proven capabilities of our original G600 glass flight display series to offer you a vastly expanded array of features, options and panel layout possibilities. It also includes system software that meets the higher assurance levels required for FAR Part 23 Class 3 aircraft (typically piston or turbine aircraft weighing between 6,000 lbs and 12,500 lbs). Backed by our No. 1-ranked product support team, the G600 TXi upgrade makes it easy to bring next-generation technology to virtually any cockpit you can fly without a type rating.
Going with Glass Just Got Easier
G600 TXi glass touchscreens integrate with the GTN Xi touchscreen GPS/Nav/Comm series¹ to provide a fully certified glass suite solution — with reliable attitude/heading reference system(s) (AHRS) replacing the old-style, maintenance-prone mechanical gyros in your system. Available in 7” portrait or landscape orientations — and in a larger 10.6” horizontal format — the G600 TXi displays offer a variety of configurations to fit your panel and budget. In a single 10.6” installation, the display accommodates PFD and MFD capabilities on the same unit. Optional engine, fuel and electrical readouts (EIS) for piston engines can also be viewed in a vertical strip alongside the PFD/MFD. A second 10.6” display can be split 80/20 or 40/40/20 to accommodate MFD and EIS functions, allowing the PFD to show full-screen flight data. The 7” portrait format can act as a dedicated PFD (with HSI map), MFD or EIS for piston- or select turboprop-equipped aircraft — or as a split-screen MFD/EIS display2. And the 7” landscape format can be configured to provide dedicated, PFD information, EIS or split-screen MFD/EIS2.
Flexible Configuration Options
In configuring your system, you can mix and match up to four of the high-resolution touchscreen displays in your cockpit. Or you can start with a single 7” portrait display serving as your PFD and expand the system’s capabilities by adding additional G600 TXi displays. The variety of G600 TXi screen sizes and display orientations can support a multitude of approved cockpit configurations and more than 600 aircraft makes and models. And each display offers the capability to have a built-in AHRS along with an air data computer (ADC) module integrated on the back of the display unit. As an additional option for remote mounting, a combined air data and attitude heading reference system (ADAHRS) is available, or AHRS and ADC units are available separately. For aircraft already equipped with the original G600 series flight displays, full TXi compatibility with existing system sensors makes for an easy, cost-effective upgrade path.
Stand-alone or Integrated Engine Indications
Whether it’s integrated in a split-screen view on the 10.6” display or shown on a 7” display, engine and fuel monitoring data is easy to access and interpret with G600 TXi. The optional engine information system is compatible with most popular Lycoming or Continental 4- to 6-cylinder engines (whether normally aspirated or turbocharged) and can provide support for both single- and twin-engine aircraft. It’s also compatible with select PT-6 equipped turboprop singles and twins, including Cessna 208/208B, Daher TBM 700/850, Piper PA46 310P/350P JetPROP/500TP Meridian, King Air 90 series, Cessna 425s and select Piper Cheyenne turboprops.
In piston-powered aircraft, EIS provides real-time indications and support for lean assist mode, pilot advisories, fuel quantities and more — enabling you to optimize fuel economy while maintaining high efficiency and performance from your engine(s). In twin-engine aircraft, TXi EIS can display your choice of bar gauges or dual-pointer dial gauges for clearer interpretation on a split-screen display. And in turboprops, you’ll see clear visual cues to indicate normal operating ranges, limit timers, cautions and exceedances — including torque, prop RPM, Ng percent and interstage turbine temperature based on the aircraft’s current condition. TXi EIS also offers a shortcut on startup to initialize fuel-computer sync, and you can set caution alerts to advise you of fuel imbalances — or when you are near exceedance limits. Plus, you can view an optional vacuum gauge for deice boots, OAT alerts, yaw trim and total fuel-load indications for all tanks.
State-of-the-art Touchscreen Technology
Leveraging the experience gained in designing and fielding thousands of integrated flight displays, Garmin built the TXi series from the ground up. The displays feature an intuitive menu interface that lets you use familiar knobs and/or touchscreen inputs to quickly access the functions, screen views and other flight information you want to see. Powerful dual-core processors boost the system’s graphical display capabilities — with faster zooming, panning and map rendering. Plus, modernized fonts and backlighting offer improved readability and increased display clarity to help lighten your in-flight visual workload.
HSI Mapping Helps Focus Your Scan
To provide even more situational awareness, G600 TXi includes HSI mapping capabilities on the 7” portrait and 10.6” display configurations, which put an MFD-like perspective map view within the HSI portion of your PFD. In addition to the geographical map, the HSI map view can also support the overlay of NEXRAD imagery and weather inputs from ADS-B and SiriusXM® datalinks. Additional overlays include SafeTaxi® airport diagrams, traffic, terrain and more. HSI map control and onscreen navigation are a snap, thanks to a Garmin innovation that lets you zoom in or out on the map, using a simple and natural single-finger swipe gesture.
Synthetic Vision Comes Standard
Our 3-D SVT™ synthetic vision technology comes pre-installed on your G600 TXi system. Using sophisticated graphics modeling, SVT provides a virtual reality perspective view of ground and water features, obstacles and optional traffic — all shown in relative proximity to your aircraft. So, rather than looking at the PFD, you’ll have a sense of looking through it, to “see” what lies beyond the nose of your aircraft. SVT clearly enhances your view of primary flight data by giving it a realistic visual frame of reference — especially in solid IFR or nighttime/marginal VFR conditions.
High-level Avionics Integration
G600 TXi was designed to interface with a wide range of avionics equipment, including our digital GFC™ 600 series and other popular autopilots installed in FAR Part 23 piston and turbine aircraft. You can use the G600 TXi touchscreens for control/display of heading, course and navigation source inputs as well as autopilot mode annunciations — including enhanced indications for IAS and VS modes in GFC 600 autopilots that show bugs solid when active and hollow when inactive — and more (with compatible inputs). And if the heading bug is out of view on the 7” landscape PFD compass card, off-scale indication arrows show the direction of the bug to improve your situational awareness and prevent the autopilot from changing turn direction during 180-degree turns.
As an option, separate dedicated PFD controllers are also available in five different control layouts for continuity with the specific autopilot system installed in the aircraft. G600 TXi also offers advanced integration capability with GTN Xi series navigators, providing full touchscreen continuity between the navigation, communication and flight display functions in your panel; you can even tune active and standby radio frequencies right from your flight display’s waypoint info page.
In emergency engine-out situations, G600 TXi with EIS capabilities enables Smart Rudder Bias in select piston twins when paired with GFC 600 with the yaw damper option. And in piston singles, G600 TXi supports Smart Glide™ engine-out navigation functionality when paired with a GTN Xi series navigator. Once activated, G600 TXi even displays a Smart Glide data panel with airport information as well as a glide range ring on the map.
Redundancy Adds Assurance
For extra peace of mind in systems where multiple displays are installed, G600 TXi is designed to enter a reversionary mode — allowing a single 7” portrait or 10.6" display to present primary flight instrumentation and engine indications (if EIS equipped) — in the unlikely event of another display failing or shutting down. The displays have backup GPS receivers built-in as well, providing redundancy in the event your system’s primary GPS navigator ever fails.
Connext Cockpit Connectivity
For even more ease-of-use functionality, team your G600 TXi displays with a GTN 650 or GTN 750 or GTN 650Xi or GTN 750Xi series navigator and our Flight Stream 510 wireless gateway¹. This setup enables our Connext wireless cockpit connectivity, which lets you stream information in real time between your avionics and compatible mobile devices running the Garmin Pilot, ForeFlight Mobile or FltPlan Go apps. This turns your tablet or smartphone into a true cockpit interface. You can use your mobile device to create flight plans whenever and wherever it’s convenient, and then easily transfer the data to your avionics once you get to the airport. You can also wirelessly stream weather, traffic, attitude information and more from your avionics to your compatible device³. Plus, by using Database Concierge via Flight Stream 510, you can wirelessly transfer aviation databases downloaded to the Garmin Pilot app on your mobile device to your GTN 650/750 and G650Xi/750 TXi and G600 TXi system. For aircraft without a GTN navigator, Flight Stream 510 can also be paired directly with a TXi display to provide flight data to Garmin Pilot — and/or provide EIS data, when EIS TXi is installed.
Add Standby, Weather, Traffic and Other Options
Pairing G600 TXi with a GI 275 electronic flight instrument adds standby attitude indicator capabilities to your panel. The displays even synchronize heading and airspeed bugs for easy transition to the standby instrument. G600 TXi also seamlessly integrates with a variety of optional sensors and datalinks to support the latest weather and traffic monitoring capabilities. Our Doppler-capable GWX™ 75 onboard color radar features a reliable, solid-state design as well as optional turbulence detection and ground clutter suppression capabilities. For pilots flying in the U.S., our GTX™ 345 series all-in-one ADS-B transponders provide easy access to subscription-free ADS-B weather and advanced dual-link traffic services. Plus, by installing a GDL® 69A satellite receiver with your system, you can add ground-and-airborne-accessible SiriusXM satellite weather and audio entertainment channels to the mix (subscriptions required). For a worldwide datalink solution, our GSR 56 receiver provides weather data and radar imagery through the Iridium® global satellite network. And for even more advanced traffic surveillance in high-density airspace, G600 TXi integrates with select TAS or TCAS systems, including our GTS™ family of traffic surveillance products. Additionally, TXi also supports multiple video input options that enable the MFD to serve as a live-cam video monitor.
It’s Nice to Be Remembered
To help you keep things the way you like them, your individual pilot profile settings on G600 TXi can be saved within the system or loaded onto a removable SD card. And this means you can also take your settings with you to another G600 TXi-equipped aircraft. Pilots operating within a flight department will especially appreciate this feature. Your preferred settings for backlighting, map settings and more can all be configured under your custom profile — allowing you to easily restore your system preferences prior to each flight.
