For pilots who want a fully integrated solution in a small, 2.64-in.-tall package, the GTN 650 is the perfect choice. The system combines GPS, COMM and NAV functions with powerful multifunction display capabilities like high-resolution terrain mapping, graphical flight planning, satellite weather, traffic display and much more.
Touch and Go
With the GTN 650’s revolutionary new touchscreen interface, you’re rarely more than two taps away from all of the system’s primary functions. Quickly pan across the map screen simply by swiping your finger across the 4.9-in. diagonal high-resolution TFT display. Or enter waypoint data with the onscreen alphanumeric entry. It’s even designed with raised grips in the bezel and a shelf across the lower edge of the display that serve as gripping points in both smooth and turbulent flight conditions. Traditional concentric knobs are also available for those who are used to that style of data input.
Navigate with Ease
The GTN family makes it easier than ever to get where you’re going. Graphical flight planning capabilities allow you to edit your entire route on the map screen and easily enter new waypoints or modify existing ones. The system even lets you load Victor and jet airways. 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. The GTN 650 also allows you to enter your most recently visited or nearest airports as waypoints and “Direct To” destinations.
In IFR conditions, you now have more landing options, as well. The SBAS/WAAS-certified, 15-channel GPS receiver generates five position updates per second, enabling you to fly GPS-guided LPV glidepath instrument approaches down to as low as 200 feet. The system also includes a complete package of VHF navigation capabilities, with a 200-channel VOR/ILS with localizer and glidescope. When you load procedures, the GTN will preload NAV frequencies for you to manually switch to and can auto select the VHF NAV source for ILS approaches. In addition, precise course deviation and roll steering outputs can be coupled to select autopilots so that IFR flight procedures may be flown automatically. This includes all ARINC 424 leg types, except RF legs. (For example, when coupled with a G500/G600 Flight Display, the aircraft can fly fully coupled missed approaches, including heading legs.)
Make Communication a Breeze
A fully certified, 2,280-channel VHF communications transceiver provides a standard 10 W (or optional 16 W) of power output. The system is pilot-selectable to both 25 kHz and 8.33 kHz channel spacing. With the GTN 650, you can set your standby COMM frequency simply by touching the onscreen number pad. Another touch of the screen flip-flops your active and standby frequencies. Recent and favorite user frequencies also are a breeze to access. For added safety, holding down the volume knob will automatically dial in the emergency frequency.
See More Than Ever Before
Packed full of multifunction display capabilities, the GTN 650 brings enhanced situational awareness to your cockpit. With high-resolution terrain mapping – including topography features, cities, airports, terminal areas, SUAs and more – and optional Class B TAWS alerting, you’ll find your way around the airspace safely and with ease. On the ground, built-in Garmin SafeTaxi® U.S. airport diagrams give you geo-referenced runways, taxiways, FBOs and hangars.
Couple the system with a GDL 69 series datalink receiver and XM® subscriptions, you can overlay NEXRAD radar right onto your moving map display and receive satellite music. Or add a Garmin traffic system and pinpoint other aircraft in your vicinity. The system can even control the GTX 32/33 remote transponder, which could save you valuable panel space.
