What is the difference between the Garmin GI-106A & the Honeywell KI-206 VOR/GS Indicators?
They have the same functions; the only difference is that the GI-106A has annunciators on the front panel to indicate the source of the received information. See images below for more comparison details.
Will this Garmin GTN 650 work with a Garmin G5?
Yes, it will work with a G5. You can refer to your G5 manual for proper installation and more information.
Yes, the GTN 750 can certainly be connected to a Garmin G3X. You would need a GAD 29 to fully give this interface. GAD 29 enables your G3X to incorporate such advanced features as GPS steering, WAAS LPV vertical approach guidance and more. The GPS navigation data is provided to the G3X system via one RS-232 input and one ARINC 429 input for each GTN/GNS unit. The G3X system sends flight data and selected course information back to the GTN 750 via an ARINC 429 output. The G3X system uses an additional ARINC 429 input to receive VOR,localizer, and glideslope deviation from the GTN. The G3X Touch system can also remotely display and control the VHF COM radio, with them being controlled over the GTN 750 or their own front panel panels over the same RS-232 connection as navigation.
As of June 2017, the Garmin G5 (all versions) do not have the ability to interface to an autopilot.
What nav radios will interface to the Garmin G5?
For the G5 DG/HSI version with nav interface (PN K10-00280-30), only Garmin nav/GPS radios will interface to the G5. This includes the Garmin GNC-255 series, SL30, GNS-430/530 series, and GTN-650/750 series navigators.
The Garmin GNC-255A and GNC-255B radios are compatible with a variety of indicators including the Garmin GI-102A and GI106A as well as the King KI-202, KI-203, KI-204, KI-206, KI-208, KI-208A, KI-209, KI-209A.
How can I safely clean and disinfect my Garmin avionics?
Garmin has provided Service Advisory 2051 for general recommendations, materials, and supplies to clean and disinfect Garmin products. Otherwise, not following the recommendations could void the warranty.
- Cleaners containing ammonia will harm the anti-reflective coating on many Garmin aviation display lenses.
- Disinfectant with a solution of 70% isopropyl alcohol that does not contain ammonia is preferred. Solutions of up to 91% isopropyl alcohol are also acceptable.
- Clean the display lens using a clean lint-free cloth and a cleaner that is specified as safe for anti-reflective coatings.
- For other exposed surfaces such as knobs, buttons, and bezels, a damp cloth with soap and water is acceptable.
- Bleach-based cleaners, ammonia-based cleaners, or other harsh chemicals on any surface are not recommended.
- Remove all soap/soap residue to prevent buttons and knobs from gumming up or becoming slippery.
- Many aviation products are not rated as waterproof. Spraying or wetting the units to the extent where moisture could go beyond the exterior surfaces could damage the unit.
Is the Garmin G5 a replacement for the King KI-256?
As of September 2017, the Garmin G5 electronic flight instrument is not a replacement for the KI-256 flight command indicator.
The DG/HSI version of the G5 can interface to a variety of autopilots such as the King KFC-150/200 to provide heading and course error to the autopilot. The G5 can interface to select autopilots for coupled flight in heading and nav modes with a compatible navigation source.
well. The KI-256 is not simply an attitude gyro/indicator. It supplies attitude data to KFC autopilots and is a flight director as well.
Regarding the Garmin G3X EFIS: can you display twin engine data?
Per the manual, yes, the G3x can display twin engine data.
Does the Garmin GNS-530 contain interface capability for weather radar?
No. Currently, the GNS-530 does not support an interface for analog or digital weather radar display. Since the GNS-530 is intended to be a multifunction display containing such information as GPS, Nav, Ryan TCAD, and Echoflight , the potential is present. Although the possibility has been addressed by Garmin, they have not released any projected date or timeframe for this interface.
