Video: Garmin’s Wireless Transponder Flight Trial


Garmin’s new GTX 335/345-series ADS-B transponders serve a broad market — from basic aircraft with stark panels to all-glass G1000 models. That’s because the transponders are available with an internal ADS-B mandate-approved WAAS GPS receiver, wireless Bluetooth transmitters for overlaying traffic and weather on tablet computers, Garmin’s portable GPS systems, and internal AHRS. They come in a remote LRU version for finally bringing ADS-B weather and traffic data to many G1000 screens.

In this video shot at Garmin’s headquarters in Olathe, Kansas, Aviation Consumer editor Larry Anglisano and Jessica Koss from Garmin go flying with the new system in the company’s G1000-equipped Diamond DA40 for an in-depth look.
