    When WE sell you a Garmin GPS it’s set up ready to go. We don’t just give you a box. You also get assistance if you need it by just phoning us. We can walk and talk you through any problem you may have.

    Garmin 795

    cf-lgExperience 3-D navigation, advanced electronic flight bag capabilities and more with aera 795. Viewable in both portrait and landscape mode, the device’s 7” touchscreen puts a wealth of flight information right at your fingertips.

    See in Virtual 3-D

    Revolutionary new 3D Vision technology shows a virtual 3-D behind-the-aircraft perspective of surrounding terrain derived from GPS and the onboard terrain database – a feature previously only available in our panel-mount avionics. Simply slide your finger across the touchscreen to rotate the view and show land and water features, obstacles, runways and airport signposts in relative proximity to the aircraft. Using its forward-looking terrain avoidance capability, aera 795 predicts in advance where towers or obstacles may exist and shades the landscape with amber or red overlays to indicate those areas. 3D Vision and other flight data are presented smoothly and continuously thanks to the device’s internal GPS that provides position updates 5 times per second (5 Hz).

    aera 795’s bright 7″ diagonal high-definition sunlight-readable display makes this detailed mapping easy to see in any lighting conditions and works in both portrait and landscape mode. The physical design has been optimized to fit on the yoke or for use as a knee-mounted device. There are only 4 touch keys on the bezel representing “Back”, “Menu”, “Direct-to” and “Nearest” for quick navigation to the most frequent used functions. All other functions are quickly accessed through Intuitive onscreen icons with labels. This unique touchscreen interface even allows you to quickly pan across the map screen and pinch to zoom.

    aera 796

    Go Paperless

    aera 796 fullfills the role of either a Class I or Class II electronic flight bag, greatly reducing the need to rely on paper charts in the cockpit. Initial georeferenced VFR sectional and IRF enroute charts come preloaded that show your aircraft’s position overlaid directly on the relevant chart. When in IFR map mode, the 795 can display victor airways, jet routes, minimum enroute altitudes and leg distance, much like what’s found on traditional enroute charts. Initial georeferenced Garmin FliteCharts provide approach charts and airport diagrams for the U.S., while pilots who prefer Jeppesen charts and diagrams can use optional Garmin ChartView service, which utilizes Jeppesen’s extensive library to provide global georeferenced charting capabilities. aera 795 also includes a robust document viewer, so you can easily pull up weights and balances, flight manuals, raster charts or a wide range of electronically formatted materials you download to the device. A “scratch pad” feature also allows you to quickly jot down clearances and other pertinent notes while in route, while a checklist viewer allows you to create customized and interactive electronic checklists.

    Enhance Situational Awareness

    aera 795’s built-in terrain and obstacle database not only shows contours in 3D Vision mode, but also allows for a top-down view of your entire route. To help you navigate around unfamiliar airports, SafeTaxi® provides detailed taxiway diagrams and position information for over 1,000 U.S. airports, while a private airport and heliport database greatly expands your emergency “nearest” options. FBO, ground transportation, lodging and other facility information for most U.S. airports are also available through preloaded AOPA Airport Directory Data; international pilots may choose to opt for global
    AC-U-KWIK airport directory data instead.

    Expand Your Portable

    Thanks to its 2 serial ports, aera 795 allows for simultaneous connectivity with other hardware. With an optional Garmin GTX 330 Mode S Transponder Interface, you can access Traffic Information Service (TIS) alerts, where available, right on the device while also sending frequencies to a Garmin SL30/40 radio or relaying position reports to other devices.

    By adding optional City Navigator maps, both helicopter and fixed-wing pilots add street addresses as waypoints or direct-to destinations. The device includes an SD™ card slot for easy updates and expansions; easily keep track of the databases on your aera through flyGarmin, our online manager that helps you update, manage and purchase the latest aviation data for your Garmin device.

    No Chart? No Problem.

    With the addition of Garmin FliteCharts and IFR map mode, the GPSMAP 695 provides key functions of a Class 1/Class 2 electronic flight bag (EFB), reducing the use of paper charts in the cockpit. With FliteCharts, you can quickly find and view all U.S. NACO departure procedures (DP), standard terminal arrival routes (STARs), approach charts and airport diagrams. If the current approach is known, GPSMAP 695 automatically selects the correct chart based on the flight plan. When in IFR map mode, the 695 can display victor airways, jet routes, minimum enroute altitude and leg distance, much like found on paper enroute charts.

    Enhance Situational Awareness

    The GPSMAP 695 features a high-resolution terrain page showing hazards relative to your altitude and a vertical profile of terrain along your route of flight. It comes with a built-in Jeppesen database, and an Americas, Atlantic or Pacific terrain database. It also includes an obstacles database for the U.S. or Europe. Using this information, the 695 displays your flight route over contour terrain mapping. With information from the terrain and obstacles databases, the 695 monitors your current position in relation to surrounding terrain to provide alerts. You can even customize your own minimum clearance levels to receive terrain cautions. The 695 also comes with a realistic view from space satellite imagery basemap.

    Like other portable Garmin devices, the 695 includes the following enhanced aviation databases:

    • Garmin SafeTaxi
      Provides detailed taxiway diagrams and position information for over 850 U.S. airports. Preloaded on the unit, this information helps you navigate unfamiliar airports with confidence and shows your aircraft’s exact position on the field.
    • AOPA Airport Directory
      Offers detailed information for over 5,300 U.S. airports, along with the names and phone numbers of thousands of FBOs. Easily look up taxi services, plan an overnight, and choose fuel stops, plus find ground transportation, lodging, restaurants, local attractions and more.
    • Private Airports and Heliports
      Provides data on private airports and heliports throughout U.S. and Europe, and materially expands your list of navigation and emergency “nearest” options.

    Receive Altitude-Sensitive Alerts

    When in the air, Garmin’s new Smart Airspace feature makes it easier than ever to identify what airspace lies ahead. Smart Airspace automatically highlights airspace close to your current altitude and de-emphasizes airspace away from the current altitude, which gives you increased situational awareness.

    Expand Your Portable

    The GPSMAP 695 includes an SD card slot for extra memory and updates. Keep track of the databases on your GPSMAP 695 through www.fly.garmin.com, our online manager that helps you update, manage and purchase the latest aviation data for your Garmin device, all in one place.

    Dedicated Compact Portable Navigator
    The aera 660 features a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen display that is optimized for cockpits and various types of flying. An elegant yet rugged design allows the aera 660 to withstand harsh environments, meeting stringent temperature tests and helicopter vibration standards. The Garmin signature direct-to feature is always available so it’s easy to command navigation functions or find nearest airports from any page. A mini-USB connector, microSD™ card slot and removable battery accompany a dedicated power button along the bezel of the aera. Depending on settings and external connections, pilots will receive up to 4 hours of battery life on a single charge. An intuitive user interface resembles that of the popular GTN™ 650/750 touchscreen series, aera 795/796 series and the Garmin Pilot™ app, so pilots can easily transition between the aera 660 and other Garmin products in the cockpit.

    3D Vision
    The 3D Vision page within the aera 660 leverages a worldwide terrain database to create a rich, 3D representation of rising terrain near the aircraft, while overlaying GPS-derived airspeed, altitude and vertical speed alongside flight plan information. 3D Vision also displays lateral and vertical (VNAV) deviation bars and includes a 360-degree HSI, which displays course deviation, track, bearing and more.

    Bearing pointers can be manually configured to identify the nearest airport, complete with distance information. When connected to the GTX 345, GDL 39 3D or Flight Stream, the 3D Vision presentation is further enhanced with the display of pitch, roll and slip-skid information. A pilot-selectable presentation optionally displays flight instruments in round gauges or tapes overlaid on the 3D topographic landscape.

    Connext® Wireless Connectivity
    Wireless connectivity options set the aera 660 even further apart from other portables on the market. Wireless database updating capabilities add to the unique feature set of the are 660. When connected to Wi-Fi, pilots can easily download and update aviation databases without the need to physically connect the aera to a computer. Additionally, the aera 660 supports connectivity with the Garmin VIRB® XE HD action camera, so pilots can control recording and take photos.

    When paired with the GTX 345, Flight Stream or the GDL 39/GDL 39 3D, ADS-B traffic and weather1 is wirelessly transferred and displayed on the aera 660. ADS-B traffic information may be viewed on the moving map, IFR/VFR charts and dedicated traffic pages, which also leverages patent-pending features such as TargetTrend™ and TerminalTraffic™. Traffic trajectories and potential conflicts are easier to identify with TargetTrend, which incorporates relative motion technology to help pilots visualize the future position of nearby traffic targets relative to the aircraft. The traffic picture is further enhanced during taxi, takeoff and landing with TerminalTraffic, which detects and displays other aircraft or ground vehicles on runways or taxiways that are also broadcasting ADS-B position information. SafeTaxi® geo-referenced airport diagrams also aid in situational awareness by identifying runways, taxiways, FBO’s, hangars and more relative to the aircraft’s position on the airport surface.

    Enhanced Basemap, Global Charting Options, and More
    Comprehensive chart options provide pilots with an easy path to a paperless cockpit in a compact device, which may be qualified for use as either a Class I or Class II Electronic Flight Bag (EFB). Geo-referenced IFR enroute, VFR sectional charts and Garmin FliteCharts® terminal procedures are available as part of the expansive database offerings associated with the aera 660. Using FliteCharts, pilots can easily view departure procedures (DPs), standard terminal arrival routes (STARs) and geo-referenced approach charts. Additionally, Garmin ChartView™ enables the display of Jeppesen charts with an optional subscription from Jeppesen. Similar to features found within other Garmin products, patented Smart Airspace™ is included in the aera 660 feature set.

    Smart Airspace highlights the airspace nearest the aircraft’s current altitude and de-emphasizes non-pertinent airspace so pilots can quickly identify their location relative to the airspace around them.

    The aera 660 is available in 4 regional versions with select regional data preloaded for North America, South America, Atlantic and Pacific regions. While each version is only available for purchase from Garmin in the corresponding region, regional databases can be purchased for any unit from any region. For pilots in Europe, the Atlantic version of the aera 660 includes the new Enhanced Basemap, which provides VFR operators with more visual landmarks and intersections that are often used when contacting air traffic control. Additionally, when selecting a street or intersection on the moving map of the aera, street names populate so it’s easier to identify aircraft location while navigating over an urban or unfamiliar environment. Operators may also incorporate City Navigator® NT street maps to enable address look-up functions within the aera to easily navigate to street intersections during off-airport operations.

    Connect with Garmin Avionics
    The aera 660 come with an aviation mount kit and cigarette lighter adapter as a standard accessory. Pilots can connect an optional bare wire cable to the aircraft instrument panel and expand the utility of the aera 660 by utilizing power, audio and dual RS-232 connections. When paired with a navigator such as the GTN 650/750 touchscreen series or the GNS 430W/530W, the aera can receive flight plan data entered into the navigator over a serial port and remain synchronized throughout the flight. When connected to a NAV/COM such as the GTR 225, GNC 255, GTR 200, SL 30 or SL 40, frequencies and airport identifiers can also be transferred from the aera to the corresponding NAV/COM. Additionally, ADS-B traffic and weather1 can be transferred via the wired connection to the aera 660 when linked to the GTX 345, GDL 39 or GDL 39 3D.

    With its long list of features, the aera 660 combines many of the capabilities of panel-mounted avionics with a value-packed, purpose-built package. It’s a dedicated aviation portable that’s ready to fly, right out of the box.
