Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT™) offers a virtual reality view of terrain such as water and land surfaces, obstacles, traffic, and runways.
Using the system’s terrain-alerting database, SVT enhances pilots’ situational awareness by creating a dimensional rendering of terrain features, obstacles, and traffic in proximity to the aircraft. Pilots get a realistic picture of everything beyond the windscreen, even in solid IFR or nighttime VFR conditions. On the secondary display, MFD capabilities can be divided into two vertical pages. This allows logical pairing of whatever information is needed during any particular point in the flight sequence. Examples of this include displaying airway charts and approach plates or satellite weather and flight planning simultaneously. At the touch of the glass, pilots can instantly access traffic data, radar, alerts, and more.
