(NASDAQ: GRMN), today announced certification of the G1000® NXi integrated flight deck upgrade for Embraer’s Phenom 100 business jets equipped with the Prodigy Flight Deck. The G1000 NXi offers these aircraft owners and operators an array of modern features, including wireless connectivity, SurfaceWatch™ runway monitoring technology, visual approach guidance, HSI map and more. The displays also preserve the same footprint and connectors so time to complete the G1000 NXi upgrade is minimized.

A wealth of modern integrated flight deck features and benefits accompany the G1000 NXi upgrade in the Phenom 100. Wireless connectivity is available as standard with the Flight Stream 510 and Connext® technology, which enables the wireless transfer of aviation databases from the Garmin Pilot™ app on a mobile device to the G1000 NXi. Additional wireless capabilities include two-way flight plan transfer, the sharing of traffic1, weather1, GPS information, back-up attitude information and more, between the G1000 NXi and the Garmin Pilot, FltPlan Go and ForeFlight Mobile applications.
The G1000 NXi also supports the display of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) In traffic and subscription-free Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather. FIS-B weather products include: NEXRAD, METARs, TAFs, PIREPs, winds and temperatures aloft and more.
