Drawing on our top-end Garmin GFC 700 flight control technology, GFC 600 provides crisp, precise response and optimum performance over the entire airspeed envelope of your aircraft. Rather than depending on failure-prone mechanical gyros, the GFC 600 system is digitally controlled, using solid-state attitude and air data sensor reference — giving you ultra-smooth roundouts, intercepts and more while also enhancing system reliability. Offering a flexible upgrade solution, GFC 600 can be interfaced with a variety of Garmin and third-party instrumentation and navigation sources. The design of the GFC 600 includes environmentally hardened servos, allowing for installation in a wide range of airframes, including harsh operating conditions. The robust hardware used in the GFC 600 autopilot’s scalable architecture lets you tailor your system’s configuration to support the level of capability you want. Every component has been engineered to work seamlessly together to ensure optimum smoothness and comfort in flight — while helping to reduce pilot workload in the cockpit.
Guidance from a compatible navigation source (such as GTN™ 750 or GTN 650) lets the GFC 600 system automatically fly a wide range of precision, nonprecision and GPS-guided approaches as well as holds, procedure turns, missed approaches and more. GFC 600 also includes built-in GPS roll steering capability, allowing smoother navigation tracking and eliminating the need for external roll steering converters. For installations including a compatible flight display (such as G600 or G500), flight director cues are displayed as command bars and are always in view when the autopilot is doing the flying — and may also be used for visual guidance when you’re hand-flying the aircraft. Better still, with support for a remotely installed Takeoff/Go-around (TOGA) button, the autopilot can be cued to automatically capture the correct pitch attitude required to fly a missed approach and then follow the missed approach procedure loaded in your compatible GPS navigator.
