Depending on the configuration and installation, the GI 275 is capable of displaying additional page functions and features beyond a
traditional flight instrument. These features can include:
- A multifunction display (MFD) with a moving map can display terrain, obstacles, traffic, weather, airspace information, airways, and
- When interfaced to a GTX™ 345 or GNX™ 375, traffic information can be displayed on the dedicated traffic page or moving map. Patented
TargetTrend™ relative motion technology and pop-up traffic alerts further enhance situational awareness.
- The GI 275 can also be interfaced to a variety of traffic systems, including select Traffic Advisory (TAS) and Traffic Alert and
Collision Avoidance Systems (TCAS). Traffic advisories are displayed on the dedicated traffic page and moving map.
- SafeTaxi airport diagrams display runways, taxiways, Fixed Based Operators (FBO’s), hangars and more relative to the aircraft’s
location on the airport surface.
- Terrain shading incorporates yellow and red contouring depicting the aircraft is 1,000 and 100 feet above ground level (AGL)
respectively. Terrain information, as well as obstacle and WireAware™ database information can be viewed on the terrain and map pages.
- The GI 275 uses its internal terrain and obstacle database to provide audible and visual terrain proximity alerts, including, “terrain
ahead, pull up” and “obstacle ahead, pull up.”
- When paired with the GDL 69 datalink receiver, the GI 275 is capable of displaying SiriusXM Aviation Weather. It can also display
Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather from either a GTX 345 or GNX 375.
- An airport information page displays a variety of information, including frequencies, runway dimensions and more.
- The GI 275 can be paired with the GRA 55/5500 and other third-party products to display a radar altimeter on a dedicated page. Visual
and aural annunciations are also available.
- The GI 275 is compatible with the GFC 600 autopilot, as well as an array of third-party autopilots and can replace the primary
attitude indicator installed with these autopilots. GFC 500 compatibility is expected later this year.
Built-in Wi-Fi enables Database Concierge, the wireless transfer of aviation databases to the GI 275. Pilots also have the option of
transferring databases to the GI 275 using a USB flash drive and the GSB 15 USB charger. Databases can also be synced among multiple GI
275 flight instruments in a single cockpit. When configured to display engine information, the GI 275 can wirelessly send engine data to
display within the Garmin Pilot app on Apple mobile devices. This data is also automatically synced and can also be viewed on the
flyGarmin website. Wireless flight plan transfer via Bluetooth is available when the GI 275 is paired with a GPS 175, GNC 355 or GNX 375.
Additional wireless functions include the sharing of GPS position and back-up attitude information with Garmin Pilot.
