Although the standalone panel-mount GPS market has appeared moribund for several years, Garmin rippled the pond at the Aircraft Electronics Association show in Palm Springs Monday with the rollout of a pair of new touchscreen, approach-capable navigators, one of which incorporates ADS-B In and Out.
