Garmin G versus Avidyne Entegra. You’re here because you want to know which glass cockpit is better and/or easier to use: the Garmin G or the. The Entegra Release 9 from Avidyne is a total upgrade of the existing Entegra avionics suite to be found in your aircraft. During the upgrade your old PFD & MFD. Blame the folks who made the nearly inch span of SR22 panel occupied by Avidyne’s certificated, TSO’d Entegra EFIS panel: a primary.

Any different display options to be found within a page are represented as tabs and pressing the same key in your desired direction will take you avidyns the tabs. The ten bezel keys control many different functions depending on which page you are on.

The attitude, airspeed, and vertical speed indicators are all displayed in the top half of the display. Some competing glass flight deck systems have limited redundancy, lose critical functionality such as datalink weather, traffic, or even autopilot, and their failure modes force the pilot to learn xvidyne display symbology and “reversionary modes.

It all goes into the airplane together, as one unit, for entrgra simplicity. But, remaining bipartisan, go check out both systems. At least I won’t have to explain why to my bride and business partner. If money is a factor, well, money is a factor. There are a few online simulators that you can play with, too Avidyne Trainer.

Likewise with the attitude and heading indicators and the electronically generated skid-slip ball; no missing the tilt of an 8-inch horizon line reacting to a slight change around the roll axis or the swing of the scale from a heading change — not when the indicators are that large and bright. Entegra also employs an integrated air data computer to generate airspeed, altitude, vertical speed, and outside air temperature OAT.

The Best Glass Cockpit System is The data that you want will be at the touch of your fingertips. This article contains content that is written like an advertisement. Columbia and Beechcraft have fully integrated autopilots, while for others you must set target altitudes and read status information on the autopilot–though you do get warning tones if you deviate from your target altitude. On the Avidyne, you must remember to set the CDI needle, otherwise the system may think you’re flying the approach as a back course and the autopilot will track the course in the opposite direction from what you intended.

Emax lets pilots track engine health and performance information on the MFD while still displaying the moving map. However, there are significant differences with regard to the features, degree of integration, intuitive aspects of the design, and overall product utility.

Common Features There are more common features between the systems than there are differences. There, on as crystal-clear a liquid-crystal display as I’ve seen in an aircraft, the two displays cover all the flight instruments, air-data gauges, navigation, attitude and heading information you’re used to seeing.

Taken together, avidynr installation is deceivingly simple: And yes we have the answer! Integrated fuel monitoring gives you fuel flow, computes nautical miles per gallon, fuel remaining, fuel-to-waypoint, fuel-to-destination — everything available from the best fuel totalizers on the market.

Every drop-down menu that you encounter is designed to be context sensitive, with choices displayed in an exceedingly useful prioritised order. When a Connie and a DC-8 collided over New York, it fundamentally changed instrument flight rules for the jet age.


After reading all that, I will let you come to your own conclusion. This auto-fill is based upon the distance from the current position, removing the requirement to filter through choices obviously too far away in order to get to the desired entry.

You can display the HSI as a full degree indicator, overlaid by the course avvidyne, CDI needle, digital course display, navigation waypoints, a flight path indicator and a wind arrow that shows relative wind direction and speed — mighty useful flying in the muck. Most planes are ordered with one, and flight training emphasizes use of the autopilot.

This method of avoiding the use of any menus creates a completely intuitive method for performing all avidyn the required basic editing functions. The default page that comes up upon startup is the engine page.

And the mark set by the Entegra is a high one. There are no losers in this analysis; you will love whichever avieyne you chose and you will greatly benefit from it. With the G, you can either combine these features to display simultaneously on the MFD or you can switch between dedicated page views for each.

As usual, I digress.
