The GNC 250XL delivers picture perfect GPS/comm technology and outstanding reliability. This VFR panel mount combines GPS navigation with a TSO-certified 760-channel transceiver and high resolution DSTN moving map display. The GNC 250XL shares the popular features of the GNC 300XL TSO at a lower price for the VFR pilot.
View Graphics in Sharp Detail
Graphics appear in crisp detail on GNC 250 XL’s 80 x 240 pixel display — jagged lines disappear and smooth arcs and crisp alphanumeric characters prevail. For optimum viewing, a built-in photocell reads the light level and adjusts the display automatically from black-on-yellow to yellow-on-black for nighttime viewing.
Enhance Situational Awareness
Receive your choice of Americas or Atlantic or Pacific coverage from a huge Jeppesen® database. Like other Garmin panel-mount units, GNC 250XL features front-loading data cartridges, so you can make data updates without removing the unit from the rack.
Save Space with Built-in Comm
The GNC 250XL also delivers clear communication from its 760-channel VHF transceiver. Comm features include auto squelch control, instant standby and emergency channel select, and frequencies transfer from the database.
