Five more aircraft including Cessna’s 172 can now have their existing old generation Garmin G1000 flightdeck upgraded to the latest G1000 NXi.
As well as the C172, Cessna’s 182 and 206, and Beechcraft’s Baron and Bonanza, can receive the retro-fitted upgrade.
The G1000 NXi has faster processors and more features, including wireless connectivity, SurfaceWatch, map overlay within the HSI and more. The upgrade is said to involve minimal aircraft downtime and installation.
Aircraft that currently have a WAAS G1000 integrated flight deck that are now eligible for the G1000 NXi upgrade are:
- Cessna 172 R/S
- Cessna 182T
- Cessna 206H
- Beechcraft Bonanza G36
- Beechcraft Baron G58
Garmin is currently taking orders for the G1000 NXi upgrade in the Cessna 172/182/206, Beechcraft Bonanza and Baron and expects deliveries to begin in August.
The G1000 NXi upgrade for these aircraft is available for a list price of $28,995 from Garmin Authorised Dealers (installation and hardware charges may apply), which includes the avionics system software and STC Letter of Authorization (LOA) from Textron Aviation for list price of $4,000.
