Garmin is pleased to announce the GTR 200B
panel mount COM radio for experimental and light sport aircraft that offers all the powerful features of the GTR 200
including advanced auto-squelch, 3D audio, stereo intercom, stereo music input, alert inputs, standby frequency monitoring, on-screen frequency identification, 10W of power, 25 kHz tuning, and remote tuning integration with G3X Touch, Garmin portables, and other EFIS systems.
Additionally, the new GTR 200B provides a Bluetooth interface with convenient front panel control that supports telephone/tablet connectivity for communications and music for those using the GTR 200B as their 2 place stereo intercom.
The GTR 200B uses the same rack/wiring as the popular GTR 200, and is a slide-in replacement for those wanting to upgrade.
Pairing your phone or tablet to the GTR 200B, is quick and easy with the Bluetooth connection page.
The GTR 200B retains the ability to wire a stereo music source into the rear connector, and adds a music source menu control to switch between hardwired and Bluetooth music. If you have a GDL 51/51R or GDL 52/52R SXM music receiver, these units may be connected to the GTR 200B by using either hardwire or Bluetooth.
The GTR 200B Media page provides a display of the artist and song title, along with media controls and music volume control.
New softkey options on the GTR 200B support quick access to the media page and/or a top-level single button play/pause control. Pressing and holding the play/pause softkey also provides quick access to the media page without dedicating a softkey to this function. The Bluetooth symbol indicates a device is connected. If you leave the telephone page when a phone call is active, the telephone icon at the top level is a reminder that a phone call is active.
The pop-up telephone page allows you to answer or reject incoming telephone calls.
You may hang up a call in progress either by using your phone or the front panel controls of the GTR 200B. You can also easily adjust the telephone volume of a call in progress from this page, and even see the battery level of your phone (when supported by the phone).
The GTR 200B is available now for a suggested retail price of $1,395.00
. The existing GTR 200 is still available at the same suggested retail price of $1,199.00
for those with a Bluetooth audio panel like the GMA 245 that donít need a Bluetooth capable COM radio and intercom.
