Borrowing heavily from our renowned G1000® glass flight deck, the G950 is a seamlessly integrated package that makes flight information easier to scan and process. It’s available in upgrade configurations for a wide range of King Air series, Beech 1900D, Twin Commander, Twin Otter, Meridian and Metroliner turboprops, as well as Cessna 501 and 525 series light jets. The G950 provides a path for OEMs and qualified engineering facilities desiring to design, install and certify an integrated flight deck, introducing new levels of situational awareness, simplicity and safety to the cockpit.
Integrate Your Cockpit
G950 puts a wealth of flight-critical data at your fingertips. With the right equipment configuration, the system is is capable of presenting flight instrumentation, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic and engine data on large-format, high-resolution displays.
Customize Your Display
Featuring a flexible design, G950 adapts to a broad range of aircraft models. It can be configured as a two-display or three-display system, with a choice of 10- or 12 inch flat-panel LCDs interchangeable for use as either a primary flight display (PFD) or multi-function display (MFD). An optional 15-inch screen is also available for even larger format MFD configurations.
Enjoy Advanced AHRS Architecture
G950 replaces traditional mechanical gyroscopic flight instruments with Garmin’s super reliable GRS77 Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS). AHRS provides accurate, digital output and referencing of your aircraft position, rate, vector and acceleration data. The system's unique design aligns quickly without require the aircraft to remain stationary.
Enhance Situational Awareness
The G950 seamlessly integrates built-in terrain and navigation databases, providing a clear, concise picture of where you are and where you’re heading. A Jeppesen® database supports onscreen navigation and communication functions. For safer arrivals and departures, optional ChartView™ — powered by Jeppesen’s JeppView™ subscription service — lets you overlay your aircraft’s position on the electronic approach chart to provide a visual crosscheck. Using information from the built-in terrain and obstacles databases, G950 displays color coding to graphically alert you when proximity conflicts loom ahead. In addition, you can augment G950 with optional Class-B Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) for an extra margin of safety in the air.
View your position on taxiways with SafeTaxi®, a built-in database U.S. or European airport diagrams. Optional FliteCharts®, an electronic version of U.S. AeroNav services, lets you quickly find and view all Departure Procedures (DP), Standard Terminal Arrival Routes (STARs), AOPA U.S. airport directory data (or optional AC-U-KWIK international airport directory data), approach charts and airport diagrams on the MFD.
Look to the Future. In Virtual 3-D
For added visual orientation, optional Garmin SVT™ synthetic vision technology is now available with your G950. Using sophisticated graphics modeling, the system recreates a 3-D “virtual reality” database landscape on the pilot and copilot PFDs. Thus, Garmin SVT enables you to clearly visualize nearby flight and enroute navigation features – even in solid IFR or nighttime VFR conditions.
Add Weather, Radio, Traffic and More
With an optional subscription to XM WX Satellite Weather™ and the addition of the GDL 69 or 69A data link receiver, you’ll have access to high resolution weather for the U.S., right in the cockpit. The GDL 69 provides NEXRAD radar, METARs, TAFs, lightning and more that can be overlaid directly onto the moving map display. For global weather information, an optional GSR 56 can connect you to the Iridium satellite network, which also provides voice and text messaging connectivity, as well as position reporting. For the best in “scan-your-own” weather analysis, the G950 can be interfaced with Garmin’s GWX 68™ digital color radar. At 6.5 kilowatts, it packs the power to penetrate serious weather. With a Garmin Mode S transponder, the G950 will also display Traffic Information Services (TIS) alerts. Or with a GTS™ 800 series traffic system, you can gain robust traffic surveillance. The system even offers support for select third-party autopilots.
*GPS receiver has a nominal operating velocity range of 0 – 800 kts (411 m/s).
