Garmin has confirmed that it will soon be including synthetic
vision in the G300 and G3X. The G300 and G3X’s synthetic
vision, SVX, is specifically for experimental and light sport
aircraft. SVX will be included with newly purchased G300 and G3X
systems, and will be available for download for those who are
already flying with the avionics.
“Synthetic vision is one of the most useful, safety
enhancing features that we offer and it makes a world of difference
in how you aviate,” said Gary Kelley, Garmin’s vice
president of marketing. “G300 and G3X pilots will appreciate
the added situational
awareness in 3D as they fly.”
With SVX on the G300 or G3X, the primary flight display (PFD)
illustrates a clear 3D depiction of terrain, obstacles, runway
designations, airport sign-posts and more – all shown in
relative proximity to the aircraft. Instead of a flat
blue-over-brown flight display, pilots will see an in-depth
perspective view of realistic terrain features rising into the sky.
G300 or G3X systems with a single display will be able to view SVX
in split screen mode with PFD information on the display’s
top half and multi-function display (MFD) information on the
display’s bottom half.
In addition, aircraft that are equipped with a Garmin GTX 330
transponder or other compatible traffic receiver will display
traffic alerts that use standard traffic symbology represented in
The G300 is a glass cockpit exclusively for the Cessna 162
Skycatcher. The G300 presents information as a split-screen PFD and
MFD, or as two full-screen displays with an optional second screen.
The G3X, like the G300, is a customizable PFD and MFD combination
and features one, two or three all-glass displays; magnetometer;
ADAHRS (combined air data and AHRS unit) and engine monitoring.
Thanks to its building block design, customers can create a high
performance panel that is tailored to their experimental or light
