Model Number: GWX 75
Garmin is pleased to announce GWX 75, a new addition to our suite of aviation weather radars. Intended for a wide range of aircraft, the Doppler-based, solid-state GWX 75 incorporates exceptional range and a new, enhanced color palette that features more color contouring than traditional aviation weather radars. Optional features, such as turbulence detection and ground clutter suppression, are also available with GWX 75.
GWX 75 provides pilots an on-board source of weather information to help better analyze convective weather threats, which aids in situational awareness and helps reduce aircraft operational costs. Pilots can tailor a unique weather picture on each individual display in the cockpit, offering superior customization. A high-definition color palette also helps pilots more easily interpret the severity of an individual storm cell or multiple storm cells in an area, which can incorporate four times more color contouring than typically displayed by other weather radars on the market.
Boasting a solid-state design, GWX 75 offers reduced power consumption and extended life compared to earlier generation, magnetron-based weather radars. GWX 75 offers a range of 320 nautical miles, horizontal scan angles of up to 120 degrees and to focus on an area of interest — pilot-adjustable sector scanning. GWX 75 also retains vertical scan capabilities, which allows the pilot to focus on storm tops, gradients and storm cell build-up at various altitudes.
