￼“We are very pleased to offer Garmin’s new GTX-345 series NextGen Transponders with ADS-B In/Out as
￼standard equipment on all our new aircraft for sale in the U.S.”, said Peter Maurer, president and CEO. “Best of all, Garmin’s STC for installation of the GTX335 and 345 series ￼transponders provides affordable FAA mandate compliant retrofit solutions to all owners of US-registered Diamond ￼aircraft, regardless of vintage and equipment and if their airplane is WAAS GPS equipped or not.”
Depending on the installed equipment and software configuration of the existing aircraft, the GTX-345 and GTX-345R ￼(Remote) will display traffic information and subscription-free weather information on the MFD and SVT ￼enabled PFDs.
Additionally, regardless of whether the existing aircraft is equipped with WAAS or not, the GTX345 ￼with GPS will not only meet the FAA’s 2020 ADS-B mandate, it will also enable the display of ADS-B traffic, subscription-free weather, GPS position data and back-up attitude information within popular apps such as Garmin Pilot and ForeFlight Mobile via Connext wireless technology, on suitable mobile devices, Diamond officials noted.
