The GPS III Pilot takes its place among the world's best aviation handhelds. This 9-ounce wonder has the same pilot-friendly operations of the Garmin GPS 90 and the mapping details of Garmin's GPSMAP 195. Yet the extraordinary GPS III Pilot occupies a unique position — or, actually, two positions. The GPS III Pilot's two-way display can be used in a horizontal "heads-up" configuration atop the glare shield of any aircraft—or, with the push of a button, can be changed to a vertical display for use on the yoke or in the palm of your hand.
The GPS III Pilot's basemap with Jeppesen data shows airports, SUAs, cities, highways, railroads, rivers, and lakes with the kind of detail only available from a 4-level grayscale display. A 3D graphic turns your flightplan into a highway in the sky, and Garmin's proprietary 12 parallel channel receiver gives you fast satellite acquisition and stays locked on to provide the finest accuracy possible under the toughest conditions or maneuvers.The GPS III Pilot is easy to use in either the portrait or landscape mode, while fluid scrolling from the rocker keypad and dedicated function keys allow you to fly through its pilot-friendly operating software.
So, no matter how you view the GPS III Pilot—handheld or mounted, primary or backup navigation, Americas or International configuration, vertical or horizontal orientation—there's simply nothing that compares.
