Note: Per Garmin, we can sell this product to both certified and experimental aircraft with or without harness.
With the intro of the GTX 327, Garmin revolutionizes a part of the panel that has been long overlooked. This full-featured, TSO certified transponder brings a unique level of functionality and utility to your airplane.
Its solid state transmitter provides 200 watts nominal power output and eliminates the need for a cavity tube which will eventually fail and require expensive replacement. And since the GTX 327 design is 100% solid state there is no warm up time, lower power consumption and lower heat emission. All of which translates to a longer service life. Some of the GTX 327 biggest features are the easiest to see. Among them, the easy-riding DSTN Liquid Crystal Display which reverses yellow numbers out of black for optimal viewing. An innovative keypad makes entering a squawk code a snap. And a dedicated VFR button allows for quick and easy 1200/VFR squawking. The GTX 327 also offers two important timing functions.
The first screen shows the current time and count up timer. The second indicates flight time and a count down timer. Together they represent a whole new standard in transponder utility.
The Garmin GTX 327 can only be sold over the counter with harness.
