Have you heard the great news at Garmin? Boasting a clean-sheet touchscreen design and vibrant presentation, Garmin’s new G500TXi/G600 TXi flight displays incorporate greater situational awareness tools and an innovative feature set into a contemporary avionics platform.
Three displays are available, offering optimal flexibility for panel configurations. These include a large 10.6-inch display, and two versions of 7-inch displays, in portrait and landscape orientations. The 10.6-inch display can operate as a primary flight display (PFD), multi-function display (MFD) and optional integrated EIS in a highly customized package, while the 7-inch portrait display can be dedicated to any one of those functions.
The 7-inch landscape display is available exclusively as a dedicated EIS solution. The G500 TXi system is intended for Part 23 Class I/II aircraft under 6,000lbs. and the G600 TXi flight displays are intended for Class III aircraft that weigh up to 12,500lbs.
Greater Scalability, Building Block Design & Simplified Upgrades
Multiple panel configurations and display orientations allow pilots and aircraft owners to better leverage their current or future avionics investment. Three display formats support 26-approved cockpit configurations and over 600 aircraft makes/models.
Installation configurations vary as the TXi family is also capable of displaying engine information on a dedicated 7-inch display or in split-screen mode on the 10.6-inch display. Up to four displays can be installed in a single cockpit, offering superior scalability in hundreds of aircraft.
Industry-First Touchscreen EIS Solutions
Available as an integrated solution within the 10.6-inch G500 TXi and G600 TXi system or as a standalone 7-inch EIS display, the TXi series display real-time engine indications in an easy-to-read format.
The TXi family supports various features, including lean assist mode, pilot-configurable advisories and more, providing pilots with the opportunity to achieve greater fuel economy, improved engine efficiency and superior engine operation.
Compatible with single-engine and twin-engine normally aspirated or turbo-charged aircraft, the EIS TXi system supports Lycoming or Continental 4/6-cylinder engines, offering a broad range of aircraft compatibility. The integrated EIS TXi solution also allows for a variety of integration possibilities with the G500 TXi and G600 TXi glass flight displays.

Say Goodbye to Standbys
In configurations with multiple displays, the TXi series offers a reversionary mode capable of displaying all pertinent flight and EIS information, on a single display in the event one display goes offline. Additionally, the 7-inch TXi displays are compatible with an optional back-up battery, which can power the display for 30-minutes in the event the aircraft electrical system fails.
Aircraft owners that install a dual 7-inch G500 TXi system on the pilot’s side of the cockpit, with dual ADAHRS and a back-up battery can also forego the requirement for standby flight instruments.
The G500 TXi and G600 TXi also support additional features and options, including:

Stand-alone EIS TXi (twin-engine, six-cylinder piston aircraft such as a 58 Baron)
The G500/G600 TXi flight displays have received EASA approval and initial shipments have commenced.
