With its advanced solid-state transmitter design eliminating the need for life limited magnetron tubes, the GWX 70 — and GWX 70H that’s been made more rugged for helicopter operations — comprises the very latest and most reliable technology in onboard weather radar.
Scan with Doppler Accuracy
Bringing full-color storm cell tracking to your compatible Garmin multifunction display, this Doppler-capable weather avoidance tool combines excellent range and adjustable scanning profiles with precision target definition — for accurate, easy-to-interpret, weather analysis in the cockpit. With pilot-adjustable horizontal scan angles of up to 120°, you can easily focus scanning on the areas you want to watch, while vertical scanning lets you focus on storm tops, gradients and cell buildup at various altitudes. Plus, Weather Attenuated Color Highlight (WATCH™) can identify areas beyond the radar’s capability that may contain even more hazardous areas of precipitation.
Upgrade to Advanced Features
The GWX 70 you buy today is prepared for the technologies you might need tomorrow. You can unlock a wealth of new functionality in your GWX 70, such as ground clutter suppression*, which identifies radar ground returns and removes them from the display – taking the guesswork out of interpreting what’s on your screen. And optional turbulence detection* can determine areas of turbulence that might contain particulate, like rain or hail. These capabilities are available through simple software upgrades, eliminating the need to purchase new hardware in the future.
