The Garmin GI-106A is a versatile course deviation indicator (CDI) in that it has the ability to interface with most Nav radios and GPS units in the General Aviation fleet today. Common interfaces for the GI-106A are the GTN750, GTN650, GTN635, GTN625, GNS530/W, GNS430/W, GNC420W, GPS400W, and SL30. The GI-106A provides both left and right course deviation, as well as vertical guidance for instrument approaches. Annunciator lights for Nav and GPS also help to remind the pilot which information source the GI-106A is currently displaying.
