Garmin GPS Arrived

My Garmin GTN 650xi arrived this week, very fresh from the factory — all the paperwork was dated 8/25/2020! Great service from Steve and Adam at Midwest Panel Builders. They are an authorized Garmin dealer, and I highly recommend them for anything avionics related.

As I discussed in a previous post, this GPS navigator will be the heart of my plane’s IFR capability. I can’t wait to use it! Between this GPS, the G3X flight displays/flight computers, and the autopilot, my plane will practically fly itself from takeoff to touchdown, much like modern airliners.

Underwhelming plain box for such an expensive piece of electronics!
Many connectors and pins
Front panel with touch screen
Just a few connectors to wire up
Hefty user manual!
