Garmin Clears Up the ADS-B Picture!

Garmin clears up the ADS-B picture!

Leave it to Garmin to clear up a very confusing, cluttered market of ADS-B products for general aviation.  This time there’s no rebranded products, partial approved model STC for certification, tricky install footnotes, gotchas or $7000 transponders.

The new GTX-335 and GTX-345 transponders are finally an all-in-one option that addresses almost every possible ADS-B installation scenario.
Features and options include:
  • Models available with or without internal WAAS GPS
  • ADS-B In capability (optional)
  • Most display compatibility option in the industry including G1000
  • Ideal size and fit factor (1.65” H) makes it easy to replace almost any panel mount transponder
  • Remote mount versions available for GTN 650/750 compatibility
  • Rack mount altitude encoder available to eliminate external wiring to encoder (optional – $299 List)
  • AML STC allowing for easy installation in hundreds of aircraft
  • List Prices start at $2995

Quite simply, if you already have a Garmin transponder (GTX-327/330 or remote GTX-32/33), then the GTX-335/345 are the most sensible option for you.  However, even if you have an older Mode C transponder, then the Garmin option is still the most sensible since you will update to a modern transponder while having complete ADS-B Out capability to comply with the 2020 mandate.

The ADS-B picture for general aviation is now much clearer.
