With features that focus on aviation-only navigation and mapping, GPSMAP 695 is Garmin’s ultimate portable MFD. Similar to the 696, the GPSMAP 695 comes with a large screen and detailed electronic charts — minus XM compatibility — at a price you’ll love.
See the Big Picture
The GPSMAP 695’s bright 7" diagonal high-definition sunlight-readable
display makes detailed mapping easy to see day or night — you can even
view an entire approach plate on the large-format display. For easy
operation, the bezel around the screen includes soft keys and a joystick
control. And the internal GPS provides position updates five times per
second (5 Hz), allowing the 695 to present flight data smoothly and
No Chart? No Problem.
With the addition of IFR map mode, Garmin FliteCharts® and
ChartView™, the GPSMAP 695 provides key functions of a Class 1/Class 2
electronic flight bag (EFB), reducing the use of paper charts in the
cockpit. When in IFR map mode, the 695 can display victor airways, jet
routes, minimum enroute altitudes and leg distance, much like what’s
found on traditional enroute charts. With FliteCharts, you can quickly
find and view all U.S. AeroNav Services, standard terminal arrival
routes (STARs), approach charts and airport diagrams. A geo-referenced
version of FliteCharts will be available in late 2010, which will
provide you with an on-screen representation of your aircraft’s exact
position overlaid directly onto these charts. For pilots who prefer
Jeppesen charts and diagrams, Garmin also offers ChartView. The
ChartView service utilizes Jeppesen’s extensive library to provide
global geo-referenced charting capabilities (Chartview activation instructions).
Enhance Situational Awareness
The GPSMAP 695 features a high-resolution terrain page showing
hazards relative to your altitude and a vertical profile of terrain
along your route of flight. It comes with a built-in Jeppesen database,
and an Americas, Atlantic or Pacific terrain database. It also includes
an obstacles database for the U.S. or Europe. Using this information,
the 695 displays your flight route over contour terrain mapping. With
information from the terrain and obstacles databases, the 695 monitors
your current position in relation to surrounding terrain to provide
alerts. To help keep pilots aware of special airspace activity, over 683
parachute drop zones are detailed in the Americas navigation database.
You can even customize your own minimum clearance levels to receive
terrain cautions. The 695 also comes with a realistic “view from space”
satellite imagery basemap.
Like other portable Garmin devices, the 695 includes the following enhanced aviation databases:
- Garmin SafeTaxi®
Provides detailed taxiway diagrams and position information for over 950
U.S. airports. Preloaded on the device, this information helps you
navigate unfamiliar airports with confidence and shows your aircraft’s
exact position on the field.
- AOPA Airport Directory
Offers detailed information for more than 5,300 U.S. airports, along
with the names and phone numbers of thousands of FBOs. Easily look up
taxi services, plan an overnight, and choose fuel stops, plus find
ground transportation, lodging, restaurants, local attractions and more.
- Private Airports and Heliports
Provides data on private airports and heliports throughout U.S. and
Europe, and materially expands your list of navigation and emergency
Receive Altitude-Sensitive Alerts
When in the air, Garmin’s new Smart Airspace™ feature makes it
easier than ever to identify what airspace lies ahead. Smart Airspace
automatically highlights airspace close to your current altitude and
de-emphasizes airspace away from the current altitude, which gives you
increased situational awareness.
Expand Your Portable
The GPSMAP 695 includes an SD™ card slot for extra memory and updates. Keep track of the databases on your GPSMAP 695 through www.fly.garmin.com,
our online manager that helps you update, manage and purchase the
latest aviation data for your Garmin device, all in one place.
Master the Basics with eLearning
To gain quick familiarity with all the features and operation of your
GPSMAP 695, Garmin offers a fully interactive, computer-based training
program. It’s called the eLearning Program,
and it’s a self-paced, Windows® compatible application developed in
conjunction with Pegasus Interactive to help new users take advantage of
all the capabilities their GPS unit offers. The software is available
in lifetime or lower-cost subscription licenses and is available from
authorized Garmin dealers or directly from flyGarmin.com.
The eLearning program for your GPSMAP 695 lets you select specific
topics of interest, and then learn by doing. A scenario-based guided
simulation system helps you practice the selected task or process by
following step-by-step, on-screen prompts. You’ll see a simulated
multi-media demonstration; then repeat what you’ve learned, hands-on, to
reinforce and assess your skills. Getting started with Garmin eLearning
is the fast, fun way to master your new portable GPS.
