  • Garmin has significantly expanded its EAA AirVenture Oshkosh trade show exhibit and a centerpiece of the 2010 booth is the new “Area G3X.” Current and future G3X customers can meet with G3X-perts throughout the show, attend seminars offering education on electrical systems for kit-built aircraft, discover the best G3X configuration for their aircraft, and participate in free t-shirt giveaways (while supplies last).
  • In conjunction with EAA AirVenture, Garmin is hosting a “Show Us Your Panel” Sweepstakes. Customers are encouraged to upload a photo of their Garmin-equipped panel displaying any Garmin aviation product before August 31 and they will have a chance to win an aera™ 500 portable GPS device.

The G3X is a customizable PFD and MFD combination and features one, two or three all-glass displays; magnetometer; ADAHRS (combined air data and AHRS unit) and engine monitoring. Thanks to its building block design, customers can create a high performance panel that is tailored to their experimental or light sport aircraft. The G3X includes high-end, G1000®-like features such as synthetic vision, integrated autopilot interface, EIS display, XM WX Satellite Weather (optional), obstacles and terrain data, IFR map mode, FliteCharts®, SafeTaxi® and AOPA Airport Directory data.
