Garmin (GRMN - Free Report) subsidiary Garmin International recently unveiled GTR 200B, a communication radio and Bluetooth-equipped intercom for experimental aircraft. The new device is expected to reduce pilots' workload in the cockpit and boost the company’s aviation business.
The GTR 200B Bluetooth-enabled intercom is aimed at adding more capability and connectivity to aircraft operations. Notably, after connecting their electronic devices to GTR 200B, pilots can make calls and listen to audio entertainment.
It features a stereo headset, which comes equipped with a 3D audio processing system to enhance the experience onboard. It aids in differentiating the source of audio and its location on the aircraft.
We believe the new radio and intercom will strengthen the company’s product portfolio.
GTR 200B’s Integration With G3X Touch
GTR 200B’s integration with G3X Touch is expected to give the company a competitive edge and further enhance functionalities in the cockpit. It enables communication radio to receive frequency directly and displays information about the type of frequency and the tower of its origination.
Additionally, the new product boasts a sunlight readable display and in-built shortcuts. The one-touch access shortcut aids the pilot to tune the frequency in emergency, mute the audio and display the saved frequency lists among others.
Moreover, to ease functions for the pilot, switches can be installed on the flight control to conveniently change the frequency from standby to active. Given the product’s slim design, it can be deployed in a variety of aircraft panels.
