Garmin GTN 650Xi
The Garmin GTN 650Xi is a fully integrated solution in a small package that’s ready and approved for installation today in hundreds of makes and models aircraft. It combines GPS, COM and NAV functions with powerful multifunction display capabilities such as high-resolution terrain mapping, graphical flight planning, advanced navigation, multiple weather options, connectivity, traffic display and much more.
Supporting multiple inputs, the GTN 650Xi 4.9” display can put moving maps, terrain, traffic, weather, airport diagrams and more at your fingertips.
Easy Data Entry
Use the on-screen QWERTY keyboard or traditional concentric knobs to enter frequencies, waypoint identifiers, routings and more.
Tell It, Tune It
Available Telligence™ voice control technology helps reduce pilot workload by responding to hundreds of spoken commands with the press of a button on the yoke.
See The Full Picture
Graphical routing on the display lets you visualize your entire flight plan, including departures, arrivals, visual/instrument approaches, holding procedures and more.
As soon as you start typing, the GTN 650Xi FastFind feature uses quick predictive logic to suggest airport and waypoint entries by using current GPS position. Just select and go.
Airways, Your Way
Victor airways and high-altitude jet routes can be overlaid on the map. For easy IFR routings, view airway segments available from a waypoint and corresponding exit options.
This handy feature lets you grab a flight plan leg on the screen, and then stretch or move it to adjust for a deviation or ATC amendment to your flight plan.
Virtual Map Topography
By referencing built-in terrain, mapping and obstacles databases, GTN 650Xi shows detailed surface features, cities, airports, SUAs and more on the dynamic map display.
A built-in database provides color-coded display overlays to warn when potential terrain conflicts loom ahead. Class A or B TAWS alerting is optionally available.
More Approach Options
The WAAS/SBAS-certified GPS receiver expands your landing options, enabling GPS-guided LPV glidepath approaches down to ILS-comparable minimums as low as 200’.
VHF Navaid Capability
In addition to GPS guidance, full VHF navigation capabilities offer complete airspace system access, including VOR/ILS with localizer and glideslope.
When loading procedures, the GTN 650Xi will pre-enter NAV frequencies to standby position for quick access. It also auto-selects the VHF NAV source for ILS approaches.
Cleared For The Visual
GTN 650Xi can give advisory visual approach guidance based on a published glidepath or a 3-degree slope from the runway threshold (with terrain/obstacle clearance).
Precise course deviation and roll steering outputs can be coupled to select autopilots, enabling virtually all IFR flight procedures to be flown automatically.
IFR pattern entries can be tricky. GTN 650Xi lets you easily create and execute holding patterns over a published or user-defined waypoint.
Search and Rescue
For aerial surveillance, common search pattern types — including orbit, parallel line, expanding square and sector search — can be loaded into your flight plan on the GTN 650Xi navigator.
Supports VNAV and More
With the GFC™ 500 and GFC 600, GTN 650Xi supports advanced modes and features such as vertical navigation profiles, radius-to-fix legs, missed approaches and more.
Upon landing, georeferenced SafeTaxi diagrams on the display automatically help track your location on hundreds of airports.
Built-In Comm Transceiver
A 2,280-channel capable VHF Comm radio gives GTN 650Xi a standard 10 watts (or optional 16 watts) of talking power with pilot-selectable 25 kHz or 8.33 kHz channel spacing.
Find A Frequency
A work-saving lookup function lets you enter any navaid or airport identifier and have the GTN 650Xi navigator look up the frequencies for that location (tower, ground, ATIS, clearance delivery, etc.)
GTN 650Xi database technology allows you to quickly recall your most frequently or recently used frequencies. Plus, holding down the volume knob will dial up the emergency frequency.
ADS-B Data Links
With available Garmin ADS-B “In” equipage solutions, GTN 650Xi can display up to 60 ADS-B traffic targets as well as subscription-free U.S. weather data.
ADS-B based TargetTrend relative motion tracking on the GTN 650Xi display gives pilots a faster, more intuitive way of judging traffic closure rates and trajectories.
Providing a dynamic display of ADS-B-equipped aircraft and ground vehicles, this technology helps pilots avoid traffic conflicts within the airport environment.
Active Traffic Solutions
For more advanced traffic surveillance capability, GTN 650Xi can integrate with select TAS or TCAS/ACAS systems, including the GTS™ family of ADS-B enhanced products.
When paired with an optional GDL® 69 datalink receiver, GTN 650Xi can incorporate SiriusXM satellite weather coverage — plus audio entertainment features.
Want global weather, radar imagery and two-way text/voice communications from the air? Connect your GTN 650Xi with our optional GSR 56 satellite link.
For demanding helicopter missions, optional GTN 650Xi versions are available with an NVG-compatible display and some 200,000 more low-altitude obstacles in the database.
Power Line Data
For added protection and visual reference in low-level flight conditions, an expanded GTN 650Xi helicopter database includes more than 700,000 miles of power lines.
Using the expanded helicopter database, WireAware helps pilots recognize wire-strike hazards with proximity alerts and power lines displayed on the GTN 650Xi moving map.
Optional HTAWS provides GTN 650Xi with audible alerting and five-color map shading to highlight nearby terrain, obstacles and wires — with voice callouts on descent below 500’.
When paired with a GRA™ 55 radar altimeter , GTN 650Xi can be used to track terrain clearance, displaying precise AGL altitude with HTAWS alerting down to 50’.
In scenarios such as electronic news gathering, where it’s necessary to hover in proximity to other helicopters, On-scene mode lets pilots minimize repeat alerts for traffic they’re aware of.
