Avidyne’s IFD540 GPS/NAV/COM combines the best Flight Management System available, with a multi-channel digital VHF radio, in an easy-to-use, plug & play design for general aviation pilots.
Evolution of Advanced Technology
Avidyne’s leadership in easy-to-use avionics takes the next step forward with the introduction of the IFD540 GPS/NAV/COM. As the newest member of Avidyne’s integrated flight display family, the IFD540 provides the same powerful navigation, communication, and multi-function display capability as found in our award-winning Entegra Release 9 systems in a touch screen, panel-mounted avionics form-factor.
Plug & Play Replacement for your Old 530
The IFD540 is designed as a plug & play replacement for the popular GNS530 & 530W navigators, but with bigger glass, a much larger screen area, 400% more pixels, and a much easier to use, touch-screen interface. And because it’s the same physical size, uses the same tray & antennas, and can be installed with no wiring changes, it makes it an incredibly easy and affordable retrofit for general aviation aircraft.
Think of your EDM-930 as your personal flight engineer. Always there, working in the background, constantly watching over your engine while you concentrate on flying the aircraft. Your EDM-930 will be monitoring your engine conditions four times per second and will warn you instantly if any measurement exceeds the programmed limit.
Leaning is accomplished quickly and automatically using the LeanFind™ procedure. With the EDM it is now possible to have substantially more diagnostic information available to you in a timely and usable manner.
The EDM 930 collects data and displays it for you in a useful way. You can use the EDM 930 to monitor engine temperatures and voltages, adjust the fuel/air mixture, and diagnose engine malfunctions.

Designed specifically for FAR Part 23 Class 1/Class 2 aircraft (singles and twins less than 6,000 lbs.), the G500 is an affordable, dual-screen electronic flight display that works with your Garmin avionics stack to provide a fully certified glass cockpit” retrofit option.
Replaces Your 6-pack with Twin Screens
The G500’s 10-inch wide bezel fits neatly into the panel space vacated by your standard 6-pack of mechanical 3-inch flight instruments. (In many cases the existing airspeed indicator, artificial horizon and altimeter can be relocated to serve as standby instrumentation.)
Dual 6.5-in. LCDs, mounted side-by-side in the bezel, put both Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Multifunction Display (MFD) capabilities directly in your field of view to help streamline instrument scanning. You’ll see real-time True Airspeed calculations and selectable Winds Aloft data — as well as aircraft ground speed, GPS active waypoint, distance-to-waypoint, desired/actual track, and more. The screens are even Class B night vision goggle friendly for use with a wide array of optics.
On the left-hand side, the PFD consolidates all primary situational information regarding your aircraft’s position, speed, attitude, vertical rate, altitude and flight progress. For added visual orientation, a scaled version of our SVT™ Synthetic Vision Technology is also available as an upgrade option — creating a 3-D “virtual reality” perspective view of flight and enroute terrain features.
Looking over to the right side of the G500, the MFD provides detailed moving-map graphics of your aircraft’s current position in relation to ground features, chart data, navaids, flight plan routings and more. A trial version of our FliteCharts® and SafeTaxi® come pre-installed (the charts will disable when the data is more than 6 months out-of-date). And built-in terrain and U.S. obstacles databases provide color-coding and other visual cues to graphically alert you when proximity conflicts loom ahead. What’s more, AOPA Airport Directory data comes pre-installed, putting FBO and fuel/service listings right at your fingertips.
G500 operation is simple — with familiar rotary knob for data entry, softkeys for mode selection, front-loading SD card slot for additional data and updates, plus an easy-to-navigate G1000-like graphical user interface.
Experience the AHRS Advantage
In place of sensitive gyro instruments, the G500 uses our super-reliable GRS 77 Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS). Combining inputs from GPS, magnetometer and air data computer, the AHRS provides an accurate digital referencing of your aircraft’s dynamic orientation in space. Also, unlike some competitive attitude/heading sensors, it’s even able to restart and properly realign itself while the aircraft is moving. ARINC 429 interface support also allows radar altimeter data to display directly on the PFD.
Sync with Your Autopilot
The G500 was designed to interface with the most popular autopilots and flight directors installed in Class 1 and Class 2 aircraft. You can use the G500 for cockpit control/display of heading, course and navigation source inputs for the autopilot. What’s more, with the optional GAD 43 adapter unit, you can elect to have the same ultra-reliable digital AHRS data driving the G500 display to serve as your autopilot’s primary attitude reference. This typically eliminates the need to retain a gyro-mechanical ADI as your autopilot reference for the G500 glass cockpit.
Add Weather, Traffic and Other Options
For added cockpit capability, it’s easy to combine the G500 with a variety of optional sensors and data links. For example, digital on-board weather radar functionality for the U.S. can be added with our GWX 68 or other ARINC 708 radar systems (software interface is optional; LRU sold separately). Our GDL 69 series XM receiver offers up-to-the moment weather and NEXRAD coverage for the U.S., as well as XM satellite radio, while the GSR 56 provides global weather data, radar imagery, voice/data connectivity and ground-based position tracking through the Iridium satellite network. And for help in watching nearby traffic, you can access Traffic Information Service (TIS) alerts on your G500 simply by adding a GTX 330 Mode S transponder. For more advanced traffic surveillance, select from an available TAS or TCAS system, including our GTS™ family of traffic surveillance products. The G600 also includes a video input option that allows your MFD to double as an EVS or live-cam video monitor.
Retrofit made easy
With Supplemental Type Certification (STC) provided under an FAA Approved Model List, we have detailed G500 installation specs for more than 600 models of GA aircraft. So, retrofitting is simple and straightforward. Just see your authorized Garmin installation center to see how fast you could be onboard with this great-looking system in your aircraft.
The award-winning Aspen Evolution™ 1000 series Primary Flight Displays (PFDs) deliver exceptionally easy-to-use, advanced glass panels at the lowest price on the market. Choose from the least expensive high-performance basic glass panel EFD1000 Pilot PFD or the top-ofthe-line EFD1000 Pro PFD.
Not only are Aspen PFDs the most affordable GA glass on the market, your fly-away cost is made even lower because Aspen’s patent-pending retrofit technology delivers substantially lower installation costs. There’s no need for expensive new panel modifications; Evolution Flight Displays (EFDs) uniquely retrofit directly into your aircraft’s six-pack panel holes. The self-contained EFDs also don’t require the installation of heavy remote mount boxes. And since Evolution displays work with the avionics already in your panel — no matter what make — you don’t have to upgrade your GPS or radios.
The Pilot and Pro PFDs provide professional-grade EFIS primary flight instruments. The Pilot has a slaved Directional Gyro while the Pro includes a full-featured electronic HSI with moving map. Choose the level of features and capabilities that suit your needs and budget.
Evolution EFDs are fully software upgradable, so you can add comprehensive hazard awareness capabilities, Evolution Synthetic Vision, and other new features — all without removing the display from your panel. Evolution also delivers greater flexibility since Aspen flight displays work with your existing GPS, radios, and traffic sensors, so you don’t have to upgrade them until you’re ready.
The highly flexible Evolution Primary Flight Displays are the only upgradable single PFD glass panels available and deliver the lowest cost option for adding glass to your aircraft. The modular Evolution system lets you expand your panel with one or two Multi-function Flight Displays (MFDs) as your needs grow and your budget permits.
Packed full of powerful avionics, the GTN 750 is a fully integrated GPS/NAV/COMM solution. The 6-in.-tall system’s intuitive touchscreen controls and large display give you unprecedented access to high-resolution terrain mapping, graphical flight planning, geo-referenced charting, traffic display, satellite weather and much more.
Touch and Go
With the GTN 750’s revolutionary new touchscreen interface, you’re rarely more than two taps away from all of the system’s primary functions. Quickly pan across the map screen simply by swiping your finger across the 6.9-in. diagonal high-resolution TFT display. Or enter waypoint data with the full onscreen keypad. It’s even designed with raised grips in the bezel and a shelf across the lower edge of the display that serve as gripping points in both smoother and turbulent flight conditions. Traditional concentric knobs are also available for those who are used to that style of data input.
Navigate with Ease
The GTN family makes it easier than ever to get where you’re going. Graphical flight planning capabilities allow you to preview your entire route on the map screen and easily enter new waypoints or modify existing ones. The system even lets you load Victor and jet airways. A handy “rubber band” feature lets you grab any leg of your flight plan route and move it to accommodate a deviation or ATC amendment to your flight plan. The GTN 750 also allows you to enter your most recently visited or nearest airports as waypoints and “Direct To” destinations. Built-in Garmin U.S. FliteCharts™ or optional Jeppesen®-style geo-referenced ChartView™, provides you with approach plates and procedures, while Garmin SafeTaxi® lets you see geo-referenced runways, taxiways, FBOs and hangars.
In IFR conditions, you now have more landing options, as well. The SBAS/WAAS-certified, 15-channel GPS receiver generates five position updates per second, enabling you to fly GPS-guided LPV glidepath instrument approaches down to as low as 200 ft. The system also includes a complete package of VHF navigation capabilities, with a 200-channel VOR/ILS with localizer and glidescope. When you load procedures, the GTN will preload NAV frequencies for you to manually switch to and can auto select the VHF NAV source for ILS approaches. In addition, precise course deviation and roll steering outputs can be coupled to select autopilots so that IFR flight procedures may be flown automatically. This includes all ARINC 424 leg types, except RF legs. (For example, when coupled with a G500/G600 Flight Display, the aircraft can fly fully coupled missed approaches, including heading legs.)
Make Communication a Breeze
A fully certified, 2,280-channel VHF communications transceiver provides a standard 10 W (or optional 16 W) of power output. The system is pilot-selectable to both 25 kHz and 8.33 kHz channel spacing. With the GTN 750, you can set your standby Com frequency simply by touching the onscreen number pad. Another touch of the screen flip-flops your active and standby frequencies. Recent and favorite user frequencies also are a breeze to access. For added safety, holding down the volume knob will automatically dial in the emergency frequency.
See More than Ever Before
With a wealth of multifunction display capabilities, the GTN 750 brings enhanced situational awareness to your cockpit. With high-resolution terrain mapping – including topography features, cities, airports, terminal areas, SUAs and more – and optional Class B TAWS alerting, you’ll find your way around the airspace safely and with ease.
Couple the system with a GDL™ 69 series datalink receiver and XM® subscriptions, you can overlay NEXRAD radar right onto your moving map display and receive satellite music. Or add a Garmin traffic system and pinpoint other aircraft in your vicinity. The GTN 750 can even control the GMA 35 remote audio panel with clearance recorder, advanced auto squelch and more. Use the GMA 35 and a GTX™ 32/33 remote transponder to save up to 3 in. of panel space versus a typical GNS 430/530 install.
Stay Up to Date
The GTN 750 features a front-loading SD™ card reader, so you can easily update your databases. PilotPak™ database bundles are now available on a single aircraft basis, saving you money and simplifying the update process — visit flyGarmin.com to learn more.
