Post New (July 2013) Garmin GTR 200 10 Watt COM Radio for Experimental Aircraft

Garmin is pleased to announce the new GTR 200 panel mount COM radio which was desgined specifically for experimental and light sport aircraft.

The GTR 200 offers a slim design (1.35" high) and powerful features including advanced auto-squelch, 3D audio, stereo intercom, stereo music input, dual alert inputs, best-in-class standby frequency monitoring, on-screen frequency identification, and much more.

A sunlight readable display with large easy to read text and frequency identification labels means you never forget which frequency is tuned. Two user defined softkeys let you have immediate access to functions like pilot isolate and music on/off. Large, high quality knobs with a great feel are a pleasure to use.

Many radios support user defined frequency presets, but few are so easy to enter and use. Large 10 character labels make it easy to identify airport and frequency type. To select a user frequency, simply press the inner dual knob, select the USER frequency group with the outer knob, and then use the inner knob to select the frequency and transfer to the standby position.

When the GTR 200 is connected to a Garmin G3X EFIS, select Garmin portable GPS units, or many other experimental EFIS systems which support the legacy SL40 protocol, flight plan and nearby airport frequency groups are constantly and automatically transferred over a serial link into the GTR 200 for easy use.

To see all of the frequencies for an airport (for example KOSH has 7), push the inner knob, select the airport with the outer knob, then select and transfer the frequency to the standby position. Nothing complicated or confusing about using this powerful feature.

A large volume bar with numerical level indication makes it super easy to restore your favorite COM volume every time. Press the MENU key and you can quickly adjust both intercom and music volume.

The 3D audio feature provides spatial separation of the active frequency, monitored standby frequency, and pilot/copilot audio streams, making it even easier to recognize that you are receiving on the active or standby frequencies without looking for the RX indicator.

The GTR 200 has a front accessible micro SD card for user installed software updates should these be needed.

The GTR 200 does not have an installed database, yet is able to use frequency information from attached devices to perform automatic frequency identification of manually tuned frequencies. Hundreds of nearby frequencies/IDs are automatically and constantly transferred to the GTR 200 by G3X (V8.20 and later) and Garmin Aera 5XX/660/7XX and GPSMAP 69X portables.

The expanded protocol to perform this enhanced feature is publicly available making it possible for any brand EFIS to integrate in this manner with the GTR 200.

The GTR 200 is easy to install, with a standard density 37 pin connector and support for both 14 and 28 volt aircraft. The GTR 200 is 10 Watt and supports 25 kHz channel spacing.

The GTR 200 is expected to be available in August for a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) of $1,199.
