This is a rock-solid GPS which has lived in my panel for the last two years. It has a 7″ screen which is very easy to see in a bright cockpit, hard buttons (no touchscreen) and it won’t overheat. With the “bare wires” cable connected to your panel, the 695 receives the current flight plan from your GTN/GNS and a charge so if you were to lose electrical power you’d have a fully charged GPS to work with.
I bought this GPS second-hand in 2013 and replaced the battery at that time. All the databases are up-to-date. ChartView is unlocked and Central European Jeppesen charts are installed. They will expire soon but remain visible until 70 days after expiration.
I’m including a soft case, the protective cover, cigarette light power adapter, AC adapter, USB cable, Quick Reference Guide, Owner’s Manual and the “bare wires” data & power cable. The original yoke mount got taken to pieces so I could install the GPS in my panel so I might not be able to put it back together, but there are loads of cockpit mounts available.
More information about the GPSMAP 695 on Garmin’s website.
I’ll take some more photos when I remove the GPS from my aircraft.
This GPS is over £1400 new – I’m asking £600 plus postage.
How would like you like to get weather information like this…
EGOV 250950Z 17014KT 9999 FEW017 SCT170 BKN250 16/11 Q1004 BLU NOSIG TAF EGOV 250736Z 2509/2518 17012KT 9999 FEW022 PROB30 TEMPO 2514/2517 7000 -RA BECMG 2516/2518 BKN018
…instantly on any device?
With one free app and another free account, you can.
It works by combining your AutoRouter account with the new Telegram Messenger app. Here’s how to get it set up:
It should all be configured now, so try sending “radar” to the autorouter bot and get back something like the first image in this post. If that works, try “sferics” to get lightning strikes or “EGLL” to get the Heathrow weather.
There are tons of commands available. If you enter one that the bot doesn’t understand, it replies with the list of supported commands. Since it doesn’t understand “help”, that’s what I use to remind me what’s available.
For a complete explanation of how to set it up and the commands available, go to the Autorouter site.
One more thing – if you have an account with the German Weather Service (DWD), perhaps because you have an ADL120 installed in your aircraft, you can get images like this:
