The Garmin GPS 20A - A Cost Effective ADS-B Solution

Garmin is pleased to announce shipments beginning for the GPS 20A. The GPS 20A is an ADS-B Out compliant WAAS GPS position source for experimental amateur-built (EAB) and light sport aircraft (LSA). For experimental aircraft owners that already have a Mode S Extended Squitter (ES) transponder such as the GTX 23ES, the non-certified GPS 20A provides aircraft owners with a simple, rule-compliant WAAS position source, which meets the TSO performance requirements set forth by the FAA.

The GPS 20A provides thousands of experimental amateur-built and LSA customers with a simple, low-cost ADS-B Out position source. Highly accurate WAAS/SBAS position information is provided by the GPS 20A and is compatible with a wide range of 1090 ES transponders, so customers have an economical path to meet the ADS-B Out position requirements of 14 CFR 91.227. Aircraft owners looking for a simple path to compliance are provided a timely solution that meets the necessary performance requirements.

Garmin and G3X Touch customers who have incorporated the GTX 23ES Mode S transponder or a GTX 330ES transponder in their EAB/LSA aircraft, can easily install the GPS 20A by connecting a single RS-232 interface to provide Garmin ADS-B data to the transponder to make their system ADS-B Out compliant. The GPS 20A communicates with all installed G3X and G3X Touch displays to provide a source of high quality WAAS GPS data to the system.

The GPS 20A is not an FAA-approved product and thus is not eligible for installation in certified aircraft.
