It's not a stretch to say that Garmin's GNS-430 has revolutionized general aviation avionics. It combines a variety of avionics capabilities with the power of modern computers, to provide both sophistication and ease of use. The GNS-430 contains and integrates the following functions:
- IFR GPS
- Jeppesen database
- Moving Map / MFD
In addition to the color map, the GNS-430 can also display lightning data from a remote WX-500 Stormscope, weather data received via satellite, and traffic from a GTX-330 Mode S transponder. Garmin also protects the GNS-430 from future obsolescence, with an available WAAS upgrade. You may also be interested in an Encoder or Indicator to use with this GNS-430.
