SnF-Lakeland Display # D34-38

Garmin is the proven leader in general aviation avionics with a wide variety of panel-mount, remote-mount and portable systems. Feature rich and logical to operate, you can tell our state-of-the-art avionics are designed by pilots for pilots.

Garmin's 2006 Sun 'n Fun booth (booth #D 34-38) will feature numerous products that pilots have come to rely on, as well as some new products that were just recently announced. The GMX 200, Garmin's new MFD with a bigger and brighter high resolution display, will be on display for the first time. The GMX 200 gives the ultimate in situational awareness with a viewing area almost 20 percent larger than other panel-mounted MFDs and an impressive list of features and nav graphic interfaces.

For increased situational awareness that is portable, the GPSMAP 396 works like a "glass cockpit" MFD.  It brings color moving map and terrain alerting features together with the latest in XM WX satellite data-link weather. NEXRAD, METARS, TAFS, TFRs, Lightning and Winds Aloft are just a few of the features that are at the pilots fingertips and will help them make informed navigational decisions.

Regardless of if you're able to attend Sun 'n Fun, pilots should plan to take advantage of Garmin's great "stack attack" savings. This special cash incentive is offered on some of today's most popular retrofit packages.  This limited time offer is applicable to those units installed after March 1, 2006. There are numerous ways to stack and save, such as stacking up the GNS 430 and 530 with a GMA 347 and GTX 330 and receiving a $1000 rebate. Or, match a new Garmin GNS 430 or GNS 480 GPS/Comm with a basic GMA 340 audio panel and GTX 327 panel mount or GTX 32 remote-mount Mode C transponder and receive a $250 rebate.

To find out more about how you can stack and save or about any other Garmin product, visit Garmin's Sun 'n Fun booth, a Garmin dealer, or
