See the big picture, including weather, with the GPSMAP
396. Building on the success of the 296, this aviation portable combines a
color map and terrain alerting with XM WX Satellite Weather.
Enhance Situational Awareness
GPSMAP 396 comes with a detailed built-in Jeppesen®
database along with terrain and U.S. obstacles databases. Using this
information, the 396 provides detailed views of your flight route, displayed
over realistic topography. For added safety, you can put the unit in Terrain
mode for TAWS-like warnings and alerts when proximity conflicts loom ahead.
View Images in Sharp Detail
Viewing the display in any light is easy, thanks to the
unit’s 256-color, high-resolution (320 x 480-pixel) sunlight-readable TFT
display with adjustable backlighting. The 396 also features USB data
transfer, fast processing speed and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack.
Add Weather, Radio and Traffic
Make informed decisions based on weather and traffic with
optional sensors and services. With a subscription to XM WX Satellite
Weather and the included GXM 30A smart antenna, you’ll have access to
constantly-updated, high-resolution weather data for the U.S., right in the
cockpit. Weather information includes Next Generation Radar (NEXRAD),
Aviation Routine Weather Reports (METARs), Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts
(TAFs), Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs), Lightning and Winds Aloft and
can be laid directly over the 396’s map. With an additional monthly service
fee, GXM 30A delivers XM Satellite Radio to your aircraft. Add a Garmin Mode
S transponder, and the 396 can display TIS traffic alerts that identify
surrounding air traffic.
