Big capabilities come in a small package with the GNX™ 375 touchscreen GPS navigator for Class I/II aircraft (under 6,000 lbs). With its bright, clear, high-resolution touchscreen display, you can have LPV approach capability to access more airports — and meet the requirements for ADS-B “Out” while experiencing the benefits of ADS-B “In” with the GNX 375. Plus, they’re the same 2” height as older navigation equipment and allow you to keep the composite course deviation indicators already in your aircraft to minimize installation cost.
Entering flight information is a cinch, and accessing every function is fast and easy. The moment you power up this navigator, you’ll see a familiar Garmin home page on the 4.8” tall display that puts the most important functions within only a few touches — including hot keys for Direct-to and flight plan access. Swipe left or right for dedicated pages. Use your fingers to pan and zoom on the moving map. Enter waypoint data with the onscreen keyboard. And touch the home button to get you back to the main page at any time.
Building and modifying flight plans is simple. As you enter waypoints, FastFind feature automatically begins searching for the nearest identifier as soon as you start typing, so in most situations, a press or two reveals just what you were thinking. You can also create holds, insert Victor airways and corresponding exit options, and add departures, arrivals and instrument approach procedures. Additionally, you can edit your route using the map screen — a handy “rubber band” feature lets you grab any leg of your flight plan route and move it to accommodate a deviation or ATC amendment to your flight plan.
Meanwhile, a variety of dynamically drawn maps provide situational awareness and context to the flight plan by highlighting visual reporting points, navaids, SafeTaxi® diagrams and such hazards as obstacles, power lines and terrain. Plus, Smart Airspace™ automatically highlights airspace close to your current altitude and de-emphasizes airspace away from the current altitude.
Advanced Approach to IFR
The SBAS/WAAS-certified GPS receiver in navigator allows you to fly GPS-guided LPV glidepath instrument approaches down to as low as 200’, greatly expanding your operational capability. You can also access newer lateral performance and all area navigation approaches. Precise course deviation and roll steering outputs can be coupled to Garmin GFC™ 500 and GFC™ 600 autopilots and select third-party autopilots, so IFR flight procedures such as holds, NextGen radius-to-fix legs and missed approaches may be flown automatically. In addition, you can create and execute custom holding patterns over an existing waypoint or user-defined waypoint. Plus, when operating in VFR conditions, GNX™ 375 can provide advisory vertical approach guidance based on a published glidepath angle or a three-degree approach glideslope from the runway threshold, while considering terrain and obstacle clearance. With this advisory guidance, you’re able to fly more consistent and more precise vertical glidepaths into a variety of airfields.
Add ADS-B “Out” and “In”
You can opt for the GNX 375 navigator, which includes a transponder for ADS-B “Out” and “In.” For example, you can access animated NEXRAD imagery, METARs, TAFs, winds and temperatures aloft, PIREPs, NOTAMs and more.
Additionally, patented TargetTrend™ relative motion technology offers a faster, more intuitive way to judge the direction and closure rate of intruding targets in relation to your aircraft’s position. For example, if traffic is ahead of you and traveling along the same track but at a slower rate, the motion vector would point opposite of its indicated direction of flight to show you are overtaking the traffic. Spoken audio alerts call out potential flight path conflicts (“Traffic, 10 o’clock, same altitude, two miles”) to get you looking in the right direction. And, at the start or end of each flight, TerminalTraffic™ technology provides the most comprehensive picture of ADS-B-equipped aircraft and ground vehicles in the airport environment. ADS-B-equipped aircraft in-flight are easily distinguished from ground vehicles and taxiing aircraft, which are displayed using distinct colors and symbols. All information is presented on a simple, easy-to-understand SafeTaxi® diagram with reference to runways, taxiways, hangar locations and more.
The GNX 375 interface with a variety of Garmin flight displays, including G3X Touch™, G5 and G500 TXi/G600 TXi, as well as select third-party displays. Plus, it’s compatible with your existing composite CDIs to provide easy, cost-effective installation.
And for even more work-saving convenience, you can use Connext® connectivity to stream information via BLUETOOTH® wireless technology between navigator and compatible Garmin portables and mobile devices running the Garmin Pilot™ or FltPlan Go. Create flight plans at home and upload them at the airport. And display GPS data and backup attitude information — as well as traffic and weather from the GNX 375 — to your mobile device or Garmin portable, making them even more useful cockpit companions.
Plus, optional Flight Stream 510 installs in the memory card slot of the navigator to enable Database Concierge database transfer and management capabilities via Connext gateway. At home you can download selected databases onto your mobile device, using the Garmin Pilot app. Then, once you get to the airport, Flight Stream 510 will automatically establish a wireless connection to the Garmin Pilot app and upload the databases from your device to your navigator in minutes.
