    Recent NEWS release for Garmin GTN 650/750

    Jet Source Completes Second Major Garmin Touchscreen Upgrade

    Carlsbad, Calif. — (August 3, 2011) — The Jet Source Avionics Department is one of the first operators in Southern California to complete a second major installation of the new Garmin GTN 650/750 touchscreens. These units are a huge breakthrough for Garmin and between extensive tax incentives and factory rebates of up to $3,250, modernizing your panel has never been more affordable or made more sense.

    Replacing the outdated Bendix-King package on a Pilatus PC-12 was a challenge, especially since so many of the original components needed to be upgraded or replaced, including the KX155 Nav/Coms, the KMA26 Audio Panel, the KMD540 MFD and the KLN89 GPS. The new system features the latest in avionics technology and includes the GTN 750 and 650 Nav/Com/GPS/WAAS units, GMA35 Audio Panel with iPod music jack, Garmin GMX MFD interfaced to KMH920 for EGPWS terrain, TCAS traffic, and the RDR2000 with radar. Also installed was the new Garmin GDL69A XM Radio and Weather Data Link, which can be displayed on the new touchscreens and GMX 200. Rounding out this incredible avionics installation was an upgrade to the existing EFIS 50 system which allows for the display of WAAS approach information.

    “The GTN 750 and 650 combination is a fully integrated GPS/NAV/COMM solution. The touchscreen controls and large display give you exceptional access to high-resolution terrain mapping, graphical flight planning, geo-referenced charting, traffic display, and satellite weather,” explains Lead Avionics Technician Danny Allen. “If you are considering an upgrade please do not hesitate: Garmin is offering rebates until August 15th 2011, saving you up to $3,250 when you combine a new GTN750 or 650 with a new Garmin traffic system.”
