Englewood, Colo. | 21 Jun 2011 | By Jeppesen

Jeppesen, a unit of Boeing Flight Services, and Garmin, a leading satellite navigation avionics provider, have teamed to provide Jeppesen’s industry-leading NavData navigation information and charting services for the recently introduced Garmin GTN avionics systems. The new Garmin GTN avionics series supported by Jeppesen data is designed for the glass cockpit general aviation market.

The new agreement supports four data bundle options and provides a single aircraft pricing structure. Garmin cockpit avionics configurations supported by the agreement include the GTN Series, G600, G500 and/or G500H. Each bundle option includes Garmin’s popular SafeTaxi, Obstacle, Terrain and available soon, AOPA Airport Directory services.

Jeppesen and Garmin customers are now able to choose between bundle options that include Jeppesen NavData, Jeppesen eCharts (JeppView for Multi-Function Display) and/or Garmin FliteCharts. This flexible bundle solution provides customers with multiple options for the supply of critical flight data to fit individual operator needs at a discounted rate. The bundle solution agreement also allows Jeppesen and Garmin data service customers to simplify the research, purchase, database update and customer support process, now provided through a single source of contact for the customer.

“We have listened to the preferences of our customers and this agreement between Jeppesen and Garmin for GTN avionics systems provides customers with the top navigational data available in the marketplace at a discounted, bundle-service rate,” said Scott Reagan, director, Jeppesen OEM Client Management. “Customers are now offered a ‘one-stop-shop’ experience related to database updates and technical support provided in a true bundled data solution from Jeppesen and Garmin.”

The bundled, single aircraft pricing structure data solution now available from Jeppesen and Garmin provides customers with a pricing discount, when compared to purchasing data solutions individually. Full U.S. coverage for the JeppView MFD bundle solution provides an approximate 71 percent savings over individual data solution pricing.
