Garmin Pilot for Android incorporates GTX 345 integration and more

Garmin is pleased to announce an updated version of the Garmin Pilot app for
Android, which includes integration with the new GTX 345 ADS-B In/Out
transponder, as well as additional trip planning enhancements and more.

GTX 345 Integration
Regardless of existing avionics configuration, the new GTX 345 ADS-B In/Out
transponder pairs with Garmin Pilot for Android to wirelessly display the following
benefits:

  • Subscription-free Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather
  • Complete picture of ADS-B equipped traffic, leveraging exclusive TargetTrend and TerminalTraffic
  • GPS position information
  • Back-up attitude information powering the rich, SVX synthetic vision and Garmin panel

Trip Planning Enhancements
Pilots can more easily select the best suitable altitude for their intended route of
flight using the Altitude Selector Guide. The Altitude Selector Guide can be
accessed within the Trip Planning form, which displays fuel burn, estimated time
enroute, as well as headwind or tailwind components. Pilots can then select
IFR/VFR and an East/West heading to derive the correct altitude for their flight.
Further aiding in fuel and trip planning, a Minimum Flight Requirement warning
will populate when the TAF for the departure or destination airports is at or
below IFR minimums. This warning populates as a yellow triangle in the
following areas:

  • Trip Planning icon on the main menu
  • Departure/destination airport on the Trip Planning form
  • Within the Upcoming Trip page

For IFR flights, the Alternate Airport Selection Guide displays airport information
along with ceiling and visibility. Pilots can simply select an airport to easily file it
as an alternate airport.
