See the future

An optional feature of the Garmin® G1000™ avionics suite is the Garmin Synthetic Vision Technology which offers sophisticated graphics modeling of terrain, traffic and obstacles in the flight path. The system looks at the entire flight path via satellite and renders a three-dimensional landscape. This technology prepares you for what lies ahead in plenty of time to plan for it and gives you a clear visual of any traffic around your aircraft.

Digital weather radar

An additional optional subscription that is compatible with the G1000 Avionics is XM WX Satellite Weather and a GDL 69A data link receiver. This subscription allows you to see high-resolution representations of weather along with your flight path on your flight display.
