Garmin's G5 EFIS For Certified Airplanes
At Sun 'n Fun 2017, Garmin announced the G5 electronic DG/EHSI, which is expected to have a street price of $2449 (and $4598 when paired with the previously released G5 attitude instrument). The G5 electronic DG/EHSI—which will be covered by an extensive AML-STC—comes with a remote magnetometer, STC, battery backup and provides reversionary attitude data when paired with the G5 flight display. The instrument won't work with autopilots, but it will work with a wide variety of Garmin navigators and navcomms, including legacy GNS530/430s, GNS480, the SL30, GNC255 and the current GTN navigators. The company also introduced two low-cost slide-in audio panels. In this video from Sun 'n Fun 2017 in Lakeland, Florida, Aviation Consumer editor Larry Anglisano took a look at the products with Jessica Koss from Garmin.
