Garmin Introduces the GWX™ 75R Aviation Weather Radar
Garmin is pleased to announce the GWX™ 75R, a new version of the GWX 75 designed for aircraft with limited radome space.The GWX 75Roffers the reliability and clarity of the GWX 75, butwith a smaller lateral scan range requirement. Intended for a wide range of fixedwingaircraft and helicopters, the Doppler-based,solid-state GWX 75R incorporates exceptionalrange and a high-definition color palette that features four times morecolor contouring thantraditional aviation weather radars on the market.
Boasting a solid-state design, GWX 75R offers reduced power consumption and extended life compared to earlier generation, magnetron-based weather radars. GWX 75R offers a range of 320 nautical miles, horizontal scan angles of up to 90 degrees, and pilot-adjustable sector scanning. GWX 75R also retains vertical scan capabilities, which allows the pilot to focus on storm tops, gradients, and storm cell build-up at various altitudes.
GWX 75R is compatible with select Garmin integrated flight decks, GTN™ series touchscreen navigators, and TXi series flight displays. The GWX 75R utilizes a receiver/transmitter known as the GWX Processor R, which is designed with a near identical footprint as the GWX 70R, simplifying a replacement of an existing GWX 70R installation. Optional features, such as turbulence detection and ground clutter suppression, are also available with GWX 75R.
