OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Garmin® International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), is pleased to announce an update to the GI 275 engine indication system (EIS) that includes enhanced display layouts that optimize display space and show more engine data on a single page, ultimately helping pilots quickly view essential engine, fuel and electrical data. In addition, improved graphical information and gauges are used to help pilots dynamically visualize sensor data and accurately assess the aircraft’s engine performance. As an alternative to the dual-concentric knob, the intuitive touchscreen user interface now features page shortcuts that allow the pilot to switch pages with just a single touch of the display. Other enhancements include a new Flight Summary Page, Engine Percent Power display, EIS page shortcuts, user customizable EIS fields, and more.
“These new features and enhancements to the user interface have been added to the GI 275 EIS to provide an intuitive and detailed engine, fuel and electrical indications solution,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “It is an incredibly capable product. This update, combined with the ability to use wireless engine data logging to help protect and optimize their engine investment makes the GI 275 EIS the perfect cost-effective and modern EIS upgrade for piston powered aircraft owners.”
Improved EIS page layouts and capabilities
A new bar graph on the Main EIS Page displays exhaust gas temperature (EGT) and cylinder head temperature (CHT) for individual cylinders. For quicker and easier interpretation of engine data, font sizes of select EIS values have been increased. In addition, a new combined EGT/CHT page brings these indications into a single page for simplified monitoring. Other new features include Normalized Mode and turbine inlet temperature (TIT) Lean functionality for appropriately equipped aircraft, improved fuel tank bar gauges, and the ability to display Engine Percent Power at the top of the screen1.
New Flight Summary Page
A new Flight Summary Page contains aircraft timers, maximum RPM and temperature limitations for the engine, as well as fuel and lean data that is dynamically updated throughout the flight for real-time analysis in the air, along with a comprehensive post-flight review of engine data on the ground.
EIS Page shortcuts and customizable fields
Shortcuts have been added with increased touch functionality to enable pilots to quickly access more detail with regard to specific EIS data. With a single touch of the EGT/CHT indications on the main page, the GI 275 EIS quickly switches to the dedicated EGT/CHT page. To more easily access fuel calculations, pilots can touch the fuel gauge from the main page to switch to the fuel computer page. In addition, pilots can touch the RPM area on any page to return to the main page. Pilots also now have the ability to customize the AUX Page EIS fields relevant to their flight with user selectable buttons accessed via the touch screen.
Wireless EIS Data Logging and Streaming
Pilots can stream and view EIS data in real-time on the Garmin Pilot™ App, with the data later uploaded automatically to flyGarmin.com for storage and further review. This seamless integration allows owners and operators to get the most out of their aircraft and engine investment by easily reviewing real-time and historical engine data performance at any time.
Lightweight and compact, the GI 275 EIS is a reliable, modern and feature-packed engine indication solution intentionally designed to take advantage of the common 3.125-inch flight instrument size, reducing installation time and preserving the existing aircraft panel. In addition, its vibrant, high-resolution touchscreen display and wide viewing angle offers superior readability in the cockpit. These new GI 275 EIS capabilities are expected to be available in August 2021 via a software update. For full installation details, and to purchase the GI 275 EIS, contact a Garmin Authorized Dealer. The GI 275 also comes with a two-year warranty and is supported by Garmin’s award-winning aviation support team, which provides 24/7 worldwide technical and warranty support.
