Garmin Announces G600 Rebate Program

Discount On System With Purchase Of GNS 430Ws, GNS 530Ws

It's rarely a bad thing to hear of a price break on popular avionics... and just before the official start of AirVenture 2007, Garmin International has announced dramatic savings programs on its popular panel mount products.

Customers planning to purchase the new G600 retrofit avionics suite will receive a $2,500 rebate off the G600, if two GNS 430W, two GNS 530W, or a GNS 430W and 530W are purchased between March 1, 2007, and November 30, 2007. This savings is in addition to the “buy 2/buy 3” rebate that allows customers to save $1,000 or $2,000, respectively, on the purchase of any combination of GNS 430W, 530W and GMX 200.

As ANN reported, Garmin introduced the G600 at AirVenture 2006.

“The aviation community’s enthusiasm about the G600 has been tremendous,” said Gary Kelley, Garmin’s vice president of marketing. “We believe the G600 will change the way pilots fly, similar to how our other panel mount products have revolutionized the industry. This $2,500 incentive will make it even more feasible for pilots to turn their avionics panel into the all-glass avionics suite they’ve dreamed about.” 

Garmin’s G600 incorporates two individual displays -- a PFD and MFD -- in a customized package specifically designed for easy retrofit installation. The G600 is designed to communicate and integrate with Garmin’s WAAS enabled panel mount products, and provides essential information such as attitude, air data, weather, terrain and traffic. This flight critical information is displayed in a user-friendly presentation so that pilots can quickly and efficiently scan the data and stay ahead of the aircraft during all phases of flight.

The G600 replaces traditional mechanical gyroscopic flight instruments with a solid state Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) for superior reliability and accuracy. Garmin’s AHRS features rapid alignment while moving, including in-flight dynamic restarts.

The system is designed to take the space that is currently occupied by the instrument six-pack (attitude, airspeed, altitude, vertical rate, turn coordinator and directional gyro). 

Near real-time weather is also available as an option via XM WX Satellite Weather (US only) through Garmin’s GDL 69 or GDL 69A. Graphical weather depictions of NEXRAD, METARs, TAFs, TFRs, winds aloft, echo tops, precipitation type at the surface, lightning strikes, storm-cell data, AIRMETs, and SIGMETs can be received and displayed on the G600 so that pilots can make informed navigation decisions. The weather data may be laid directly over Jeppesen and topographic map databases. The G600 also provides a user interface for the more than 170 channels of XM audio.

Garmin anticipates that the G600 will receive the FAA’s Approved Model List Supplemental Type Certification (AML STC), which should simplify certification for approximately 400 different aircraft models.

Garmin plans to roll out the G600 in phases in order to accommodate various autopilots on the market. The G600 will include a complete autopilot interface that will allow the G600 to communicate with the autopilot and display and control essential autopilot features such as flight director command bars, heading and course selection, altitude pre-select, and roll steering.
