Garmin aera 796 Aviation GPS (Americas)
NOTE: This does NOT include the SiriusXM Antenna. To get SiriusXM Weather and/or Radio you will also need the GXM 42 Antenna.
Garmin’s new flagship portable aviation product, the Garmin aera 796 GPS incorporates the popular features of the GPSMAP 696, while also adding new capabilities such as a touchscreen user interface, pilot-selectable screen orientation and 3D Vision. The Garmin aera 796 also takes the pilot one step closer to a paperless cockpit with a digital document viewer, scratch pad and pre-loaded geo-referenced AeroNav IFR and VFR enroute charts.
The Garmin 796 has a high-resolution, 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display that can be viewed in portrait or landscape mode. The physical design has been optimized to fit on the yoke and is sized perfectly as a knee-mounted device. There are four touch keys on the bezel of the unit representing “Back”, “Menu”, “Direct-To” and “Nearest” for quick navigation to frequently used functions, and because the Garmin 796 is customizable, the user can also pick favorite features or pages to anchor as icons along the bottom of the screen for even faster access.
The display has large, finger-touchable icons with intuitive pictures and labels to indicate their function such as: map, terrain, 3D Vision, WPT info, FPL list, active FPL, numbers, doc viewer, charts, weather, SiriusXM and tools. Pilots can choose any of these functions by simply touching the appropriate icon. The touchscreen interface also allows the pilot to quickly pan across the map and pinch zoom.
Enhanced situational awareness with 3D Vision
The path to a paperless cockpit
Other new features include a built-in digital document viewer that enables the pilot to load and view PDF documents, JPEG photos, and many other electronically formatted materials including checklists and detailed performance/procedural data from the aircraft flight manual. There is also a convenient scratch pad for writing down clearances or other important notes.
Added support for helicopter missions
Instrument back up, weather, traffic and more
Like many other Garmin portable devices, the aera 796 also includes a GXM™ 40 receiver for XM WX Satellite Weather and SiriusXM Radio. XM WX Satellite Weather gives next generation radar (NEXRAD), aviation routine weather reports (METARs), terminal aerodrome forecasts (TAFs), temporary flight restrictions (TFRs), lightning, winds aloft, turbulence forecasts, PIREPs, icing forecast and several other important weather products. The weather data may be laid directly over the unit’s navigation and topographic map databases. And because the GXM 40 is powered through the aera 796, the set up is simple, and satellite weather and radio can continue to operate for up to four hours without external power. XM WX subscription data and coverage area information is available from XM WX Satellite Weather.
The Garmin 796 will also display traffic if coupled to a compatible traffic source like the GTX 330, showing TIS (traffic information service) where available. Garmin has increased the interface capability through the addition of a second serial port to allow even more connectivity simultaneously. With two serial ports, the pilot can display traffic information, send frequencies to a Garmin SL30 or SL40 radio, send position information and more to other select aircraft devices.
Taxiing at unfamiliar airports is made easier thanks to SafeTaxi®, which includes geo-referenced diagrams of over 1,000 U.S. airports that identify runways, taxiways and hangars, as well as the aircraft’s exact location on the field. The aera 796 also has AOPA Airport Directory data, an electronic version of AOPA’s popular U.S. pilot guide, which includes information for over 5,300 public-use airports and nearly 7,000 FBOs. Optionally, pilots can purchase the AC-U-KWIK airport directory database, which features worldwide airport information for more than 7,800 airports globally, and contains hard-to-find information for pre-flight planning in North America, Europe, Asia, Central America, the Caribbean, South America, Africa and Australia.
North American customers that do not require XM WX Satellite Weather and SiriusXM Radio, may be interested in the Garmin 795 that has identical features to the Garmin 796 except that it is not XM capable. Garmin also offers Garmin aera 795 Atlantic and Garmin aera 795 Pacific versions for customers in Europe and in Asia/Australia, respectively.
