We’re excited to announce yet another addition to our portfolio of G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrades—G1000-equipped Piper M500 aircraft. The upgrade incorporates significant performance enhancements along with unique features such as SurfaceWatch, visual approaches, geographical map overlay within the HSI and more. A Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade for the M500 is targeted for approval in 2019 and will be available through select Garmin dealers.
The G1000 NXi integrated flight deck boasts a comprehensive feature set with new and advanced capabilities. Unique features included as part of the G1000 NXi upgrade for the M500 include:
Modern, state-of-the-art processors provide existing M500 owners and operators smoother panning throughout the displays and faster map rendering within the G1000 NXi. The flight displays initialize in seconds so pilots have immediate access to frequencies, flight plan data and more, saving valuable time in the cockpit. The G1000 NXi integrated flight deck also incorporates contemporary animations and LED back-lighting, offering increased display brightness and clarity, reduced power consumption and improved dimming performance.
STC for the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade on existing G1000-equipped Piper M500 aircraft is targeted for approval in 2019 and will be available through select Garmin dealers. M500 owners and operators can easily upgrade to the G1000 NXi with minimal aircraft down time and disruption of the panel as the displays preserve the same footprint and connectors, so panel modifications are not required. The upgraded components of the G1000 NXi also come with a two-year warranty, which is supported by our award-winning avionics product support team.
