Garmin GNS 530

Product Description

The GNS 530 represents the single biggest idea in integrated avionics in years. Traditionally, it would take a host of components to provide the capabilities represented in this one sophisticated box. It is a WAAS-upgradeable IFR GPS, Com, VOR, LOC and glide-slope with color moving map all rolled into one. A TSO’d VHF Com offers a choice of 25 kHz or 8.33 kHz spacing for 760- or 3040-channel configuration respectively. A huge Jeppesen database (that can be updated with a front-loading data card) contains all airports, VORs, NDBs, Intersections, FSS, Approach, DPs/STARs and SUA information. The GNS 530 makes practical use of this information with features like intelligent frequency nomination.
