G500H TXi displays for Robinson Helicopters

27th February 2018 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Robinson Helicopter has added Garmin’s new G500H TXi displays to its R44 and R66 helicopters as additional options, the company announced on 21 February.

The two TXi displays will add touchscreen functionality to Garmin’s G500H system and combine primary flight display (PFD)/multi-functional display information on to a single screen. The upgraded displays will provide increased resolution and interface with Garmin’s GTN 6xx/7xx touchscreen GPS series.

The Garmin Display Unit (GDU) 1060 TXi is a 10.6in display installed in Robinson’s G500H console with room beneath for any Garmin GTN 6xx/7xx and Genesys SAS/Autopilot.

The GDU 700L TXi is a seven-inch display installed in Robinson’s console with room beneath for any Garmin GTN 6xx. The new landscape-oriented display specifically designed for Robinson helicopters allows pilots to switch between a full-screen PFD or full-screen moving map. Due to the compact console configuration, there is no need for a separate GTN GPS console in front of the pilot.

Both TXi displays support the same optional equipment interfaces as the non-touchscreen G500H display. The displays also enhance the visibility of the optional synthetic vision.
