Garmin G600 Glass Cockpit Retrofit 2017-05-10T13:48:38+00:00

Garmin G600

The Garmin G600 uses technology derived from Garmin’s highly successful G1000 integrated avionics system, and brings a wealth of graphical flight capabilities to your cockpit retrofit.

The G600 comes with a scaled version of Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) and is approved for Class 1 and 2 aircraft – as well as for larger Class 3 piston and turbine aircraft between 6,000 lbs and 12,500 lbs MTOW (see below).

  • Approved for Class 1 Aircraft (typically piston singles under 6,000 lbs.)
  • Approved for Class 2 Aircraft (typically piston twins and turbine aircraft under 6,000 lbs.)
  • Approved for Class 3 Aircraft (typically piston or turbine aircraft between 6,000 lbs. and 12,500 lbs)
  • Software design assurance – Level B
  • Garmin SVT Synthetic Vision Technology
  • GAD 43 replaces select A/P gyro attitude with AHRS references and provides bootstrap heading, yaw information, and baro corrections
  • GWX 68 Radar interface (radar LRU sold separately)
  • Optional Internal TAWS-B terrain alerting

Dual LCDs

Dual LCD screens mounted side-by-side in a single bezel put Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Multi-Function Display (MFD) capabilities right in front of the pilot – bringing a whole new level of capability and situational awareness to the avionics retrofit market. With standard FliteCharts or optional ChartView, electronic approach plates can be displayed on the MFD.

The Garmin G600 has identical large, VGA-quality color LCD’s that fit neatly into the panel area where your 6-pack of mechanical instruments currently reside.  Each screen offers brilliant color and crisp readability, even in direct sunlight, thanks to Garmin’s advanced RGB backlight design.  If space allows, your existing airspeed indicator, altimeter and artificial horizon can be moved adjacent to the G600 to be used as standby instruments.  Significant cost savings can be gained when you use the optional trim rings which enable the instrument panel to be modified and re-used.

The PFD screen on the left is SVT-capable and shows airspeed, attitude, altitude, climb rate and course/heading information.  The MFD screen on the right shows detailed moving-map graphics of your aircraft’s current position in relation to ground features, navaids, chart data, flight plan routings and more.

Pairing the Garmin G600 PFD and MFD directly in your field of view allows you to scan both quickly and easily.  The PFD displays your attitude 50% larger than that of the standard 3-inch flight instruments.  A scaled version of Garmin SVT Synthetic Vision Technology offers added situational awareness and creates a 3-D virtual reality perspective view of flight and terrain.

Combine your Garmin G600 with your existing Garmin avionics stack and Voila!  Your old six-pack instrument layout is transformed into a state-of-the-art digital command center with AHRS attitude/heading reference and dual 6.5-inch LCD displays.

The Garmin G600 is Garmin’s first certified retrofit package to make SVT available which reduces pilot workload and increases safety and situational awareness.  So, if you love the idea of flying a digital glass cockpit – but hate to think of parting with your current aircraft – this is clearly the upgrade option you’ve been waiting for!
