Victor’s Vectors: News flash for the G3X and Pilot My-Cast on iPhone

This software and sensor pack will enable the customization of engine gauges, color bands, and audible/visual alerts, and it also provides support for a laundry list of sensor types.  In addition to engine monitoring, Garmin will release software to integrate the G3X with the TruTrak GX Pilot autopilot. This integration will implement the use of sophisticated flight control modes including altitude preselect and capture, heading hold, GPS navigation with turn anticipation, and coupled VNAV descents. The G3X will also fly coupled holding patterns, procedure turns, and WAAS approaches when used in conjunction with a GNS 400W/500W series unit.
