The GI 275 Base variant can be utilized as a CDI/MFD with features such as traffic, weather, terrain, SafeTaxi® airport diagrams, and more. When installed as a CDI, the GI 275 flight instrument, when paired with select VHF Nav radios or GPS navigators, can serve as your primary indicator for making, adjusting and tracking course selections. It is designed to accept a variety of GPS or navigation inputs, allowing up to two GPS sources and two VHF navigation sources. The GI 275 features an Omni Bearing Resolver that allows the flight instrument to interface to a variety of legacy navigation sources without the need for an expensive adapter. CDI source selection can be accomplished through the touchscreen interface, while course and heading selection is completed by using either the touchscreen or dual concentric knob. When pilots replace an older mechanical CDI, the GI 275 doubles as a modern digital indicator and adds MFD-like capabilities such as a moving map, weather, traffic and terrain.
