Garmin Announces Next Generation All-in-One ADS-B Transponders

GTX345Garmin announced today the release of the GTX 345 and GTX 335, all-in-one ADS-B transponders, which include Extender Squitter (ES) ADS-B Out with options for built-in WAAS position source as well as dual-link ADS-B In. With the most compatibility options in the industry, these new transponders display on a wide variety of current and legacy Garmin displays, including select G1000 integrated flight decks. Regardless of the existing avionics configuration, the GTX 345 enables more capabilities for pilots by displaying ADS-B traffic, subscription-free weather, GPS position data and back-up attitude information within popular apps such as Garmin Pilot and ForeFlight Mobile via Connext wireless technology. The GTX 335/345 come in an attractive size and form factor, making it easy to replace the most popular transponders in the industry, like the Garmin GTX 327 and many others. Remote options are also available for compatibility with the GTN 650/750 series and G1000-equipped aircraft. List prices start at $2,995.
