GPS 400W is a WAAS-certified GPS with color moving map and includes the popular features of the GNS 430W — minus the nav and comm.
GPS 400W comes with built-in WAAS navigation capabilities. It is approved to fly LPV “glideslope” approaches without reference to ground-based navaids of any kind. It features an advanced 15-channel receiver capable of 5 position updates per second. GPS 400W meets the stringent TSO C146a FAA standards for WAAS “sole means” navigation — providing vertical and lateral approach guidance into thousands of U.S. airports previously inaccessible in IFR conditions.
High Resolution Mapping
The 4" high-contrast display with brilliant colors makes it easy to read and interpret pilot-critical information. Effective use of color makes it easy to see your position relative to ground features, chart data, navaids, flight plan routings and approach procedures. Scan information from wide viewing angles, even in direct sunlight.
Enhance Situational Awareness
GPS 400W seamlessly integrates built-in terrain and navigation databases, providing a clear, concise picture of where you are and where you’re heading. The 400W’s huge Jeppesen® database, updated with front-loading data cards, contains location reference for all airports, VORs, NDBs, Intersections, Flight Service Stations, published approaches, SIDs/STARs, Special Use Airspace and geopolitical boundaries. Detailed basemaps clearly show airports, cities, highways, railroads, rivers, lakes and coastlines. Using information from the built-in terrain and U.S. obstacles databases, the 400W displays color coding to graphically alert you when proximity conflicts loom.
Expand Your Panel Mount
GPS 400W interfaces with an array of optional sensors and tracking systems, allowing you to see and avoid hazards such as threatening weather, lightning or air traffic. With an optional subscription to XM WX Satellite Weather and the addition of a GDL 69 or 69A datalink receiver, you’ll have access to high resolution weather for the U.S., right in the cockpit. NEXRAD, METARs, TAFs and lightning can be overlaid directly on Jeppesen and topographic map databases. With an additional monthly service fee, GDL 69A delivers SiriusXM Satellite Radio to your aircraft. Add the GTX 330 Mode S transponder, and GPS 400 will also display Traffic Information Services (TIS) alerts that identify surrounding air traffic.
