GPSMAP® 495

Part Number: 010-00573-00

Overview

Fly with confidence without breaking your budget with GPSMAP 495. This “mini-MFD” portable includes the advanced features of the 496 — minus XM™ compatibility and preloaded maps — at a price you’ll love. It comes loaded with Garmin’s Smart Airspace™, super-fast update speed and enhanced terrain. European specific Airspace Menu's, new clearly defined airspace, VRP's, ATZ's, MATZ's, Private Airstrips, Helipads, Heliports and Altitude selectable airspace control. Add optional mapping to this versatile handheld for use on land or water.

European Specific Software

Garmin have added a European database of Visual Reference Points (VRP), correctly depicted Air Traffic Zones (ATZ) and Military Air Traffic Zones (MATZ). The addition of Air Sports Sites such as Microlighting or Parachuting Private Airstrips, Helipads and Heliports adds so much more versatility to a wider audience of General Aviation pilots than before.

Showing the Airspace

The GPSmap 495 European model has an extra feature developed for the European market. The showing of all airspace on systems can clutter the screen quickly. With the ability to select an Altitude and then have the airspace below that altitude showing only, allows a clear, easy depiction of airspace that matters..

Receive Altitude-Sensitive Alerts

When in the air, Garmin’s 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-emphasises airspace well above or below your altitude, which gives you increased situational awareness.

Enjoy Faster Update Rate

For added realism and safety, the 495 updates map data and "Panel" page instruments at 5 Hz, a significantly faster update rate that gives you a smoother, near “real-time” presentation of your aircraft’s analogue indicators, such as the HSI and turn coordinator.

Enhance Situational Awareness

GPSMAP 495 features 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 495 displays your flight route over contour terrain mapping. The higher-resolution terrain database includes over ten times as much data as the 296’s for even more visual reference. With information from the terrain and obstacles databases, the 495 monitors your current position in relation to surrounding terrain to provide alerts. Even customise your own minimum clearance levels to receive terrain cautions. The addition of private airports and heliports to the database provides even more navigation and emergency "nearest" options. Add a Garmin Mode S transponder, and the 495 will display TIS traffic alerts that identify surrounding air traffic.

Navigate by Air, Land or Sea

Simply press a button to switch GPSMAP 495 to automotive or marine mode. The 495 comes with a built-in routable basemap. Add optional MapSource® City Navigator® detailed street maps to receive voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions to addresses and points of interest. For a great day on the water, customise the waterproof 495 with optional BlueChart® marine cartography.
