Garmin G300 and G3X Add Synthetic Vision, SVX

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 3D.

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 sport aircraft.
