This just made my recently installed, $3800, garmin 400w obsolete.

And, may well hasten the end of support for them.

The person I talked to today (garmin distributor) was just learning about them himself but was sure it worked with a Gmc 507 and their autopilot.

I'm sure g3expert will chime in here soon. He's very helpful on these topics and always willing to answer questions. His customer service, makes garmin in my opinion, couldn't ask for a more helpful and patient person.

Hello Darin,

Both the GPS 175 and GNX 375 work great with our autopilots for EAB aircraft.

I have been flying with a GNX 375 in my G3X Touch homebuilt for several months and love it.

They also work great great for those that have G5 systems. Here is an example setup that uses the Aera 660 as a "helper display" for full time display of traffic/weather and flight plan/approaches while you use the GNX 375 display for other things.



Let us know if you have additional questions.

Thanks,
Steve

Default 3D CAD available

Great news Levi!

Question... is there a 3D CAD model available so I can package it into my SolidWorks assembly?

I see depths are:
  • GPS 175 6.25"
  • GNX 375 10.85"
  • GTN 650 Series 11.25"

Default GNX650 alternate

So will the GNX375 married to the GNC225 be a viable alternate to the GTN650? This gives VOR capability and a panel mounted radio.

I am now even more excited about going to Sun-N-Fun next week. I cannot imagine the timing is coincidental The Garmin booth is going to be 10 deep this year.

It would seam that a GNX375 married to a GNC225 would be a viable alternative to a GTN650 and a GTX345.
