Service Advisory 1215 Rev A: GIA 63W, GTN 650/750, GNS 400W/500W Series, and GNS 480 ADS-B Compliance Issue

27 November 2013  / Service Advisories /


AFFECTED PRODUCTS

All GIA 63W, GTN 650/GTN 750, GPS 400W/GNC 420W/GNS 430W/GPS 500W/GNS 530W, and GNS 480 Navigation Systems are affected.

DESCRIPTION

14 CFR § 91.227 and FAA Advisory Circular AC20-165 include new navigation accuracy and integrity requirements applicable to the approved position source for certification of rule-compliant ADS-B/Out system installations. GIA 63W, GTN 650/750, GNS 400W/500W Series and GNS 480 Navigation Systems do not currently meet these requirements. Therefore, GIA 63W, GTN 650/750, GNS 400W/500W Series, and GNS 480 Navigation Systems are currently ineligible for certification as the required GPS/WAAS navigation source in a 14 CFR § 91.227-compliant ADS-B/Out system installation.

RESOLUTION

Garmin will advise when a 14 CFR § 91.227 and FAA Advisory Circular AC20-165 compliant ADS-B position source upgrade solution is available for the GIA 63W, GTN 650/750, GNS 400W/500W Series, and GNS 480 Navigation Systems.
