The GTN 635 is the latest in General Aviation navigation and communication from Garmin. The 2.64-in.-tall GPS/COMM device puts high-resolution terrain mapping, graphical flight planning, multiple weather options, traffic display and more right at your fingertips.
Touch and Go
With the GTN 635’s revolutionary new touchscreen interface, you’re rarely more than two taps away from all of the system’s primary functions. Quickly pan across the map screen simply by swiping your finger across the 4.9-in. diagonal high-resolution TFT display. Or enter waypoint data with the onscreen alphanumeric entry. It’s designed with raised grips in the bezel and a shelf across the lower edge of the display that serve as gripping points in both smooth and turbulent flight conditions. Traditional concentric knobs are also available for those who are used to that style of data input. If you have a GNS 430W/530W, your active flight plan will automatically crossfill from the GTN to the GNS. You can also manually crossfill user waypoints back and forth between both devices.
Navigate with Ease
The GTN family makes it easier than ever to get where you’re going. Graphical flight planning capabilities allow you to edit your entire route on the map screen and enter new waypoints or modify existing ones. The system even lets you load Victor and jet airways. A handy "rubber band" feature lets you grab any leg of your flight plan route or direct-to and move it to accommodate a deviation or ATC amendment to your flight plan. The GTN 635 also allows you to enter your most recently visited or nearest airports as waypoints and “Direct To” destinations.
In IFR conditions, you now have more landing options, as well. The SBAS/WAAS-certified, 15-channel GPS receiver generates five position updates per second, enabling you to fly GPS-guided LPV glidepath instrument approaches down to as low as 200 ft. In addition, precise course deviation and roll steering outputs can be coupled to select autopilots so that IFR flight procedures may be flown automatically. This includes all ARINC 424 leg types, except RF legs. (For example, when coupled with a G500/G600 Flight Display, the aircraft can fly fully coupled missed approaches, including heading legs.)
Make Communication a Breeze
A fully certified, 2,280-channel VHF communications transceiver provides a standard 10 W (or optional 16 W) of power output. The system is pilot-selectable to both 25 kHz and 8.33 kHz channel spacing. With the GTN 635, you can set your standby Com frequency simply by touching the onscreen number pad. Another touch of the screen flip-flops your active and standby frequencies. Recent and favorite user frequencies also are a breeze to access. For added safety, holding down the volume knob will automatically dial in the emergency frequency.
See More Than Ever Before
Packed full of multifunction display capabilities, the GTN 635 brings enhanced situational awareness to your cockpit. With high-resolution terrain mapping – including topography features, cities, airports, terminal areas, SUAs and more – and optional Class B TAWS alerting, you’ll find your way around the airspace safely and with ease with Smart Airspace™. Smart Airspace automatically highlights airspace close to your current altitude and de-emphasizes airspace away from the current altitude, which gives you increased situational awareness. The system even allows you to load and follow Victor and jet airways. On the ground, built-in Garmin SafeTaxi® airport diagrams give you geo-referenced runways, taxiways, FBOs and hangars available in either the U.S. or Europe.
Add Traffic, Weather and More
The dual-link GDL® 88 allows the GTN 635 to display up to 60 ADS-B traffic targets. TargetTrend™ relative motion technology offers pilots a faster, more intuitive way to judge the direction and closure rate of intruding targets in relation to their aircraft’s position. And unique SURF technology supports the display of ADS-B-equipped surface targets on Garmin SafeTaxi® airport diagrams – including taxiing aircraft and ground vehicles. The GDL 88 can also receive the FAA’s subscription-free FIS-B weather broadcasts that include graphical NEXRAD radar information, as well as NOTAMs, METARs, TAFs and more. Even better the GTN provides the GDL 88 with the WAAS position source required for ADS-B, so a WAAS version of the GDL 88 is not required. And consider adding a Garmin Traffic System to compliment the GDL 88 to provide the best possible traffic coverage from now until 2020.
Couple the system with a GDL® 69 series datalink receiver and you can also receive SiriusXM® weather and radio (subscriptions required). An optional GSR 56 can provide World Wide Weather data virtually anywhere on the globe, as well as the ability to make and receive phone calls and send and receive texts messages while in the air.
And because the GTN 635 can control the GTX™ 33 remote transponder, a GTN 635 installation could also save you valuable panel space.
