aera 796 - with smooth scrolling and 3D vision technology

The aera 796 offers 3D vision - a new Garmin feature that provides perspective views of the topography beneath and around your aircraft. Capable of two views (landscape or portrait), the device can be mounted in the orientation preferable for your cabin.

With a 7-inch hi-res capacitive touch screen, scroll, pan, and zoom functions are smooth and intuitive. The navigation map on the 796 provides detailed flight information. Three different map overlays detail terrain, weather and topographical features.

Data fields on the navigation map can be configured to display four sets of information with many options available.

A patented Garmin panel page offers GPS derived instrumentation, providing an EHSI with indications of ground track, altitude, groundspeed, vertical speed, and turn indication. A digital document viewer enables the unit to view entire approaches – expanding the unit’s utility for use as your electronic flight bag (EFB)
