As Garmin's new flagship portable aviation product, the aera 795 incorporates the popular features of the GPSMAP 695, while also adding new capabilities such as a touchscreen user interface, pilot-selectable screen orientation and 3D Vision. The aera 795 also takes the pilot one step closer to a paperless cockpit with a digital document viewer, and scratch pad.
The aera 795 has a high-resolution and sunlight readable 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display that can be viewed in portrait or landscape mode. The physical design has been optimised to fit on the yoke and is sized perfectly as a knee-mounted device. There are four touch keys on the bezel of the unit representing "Back", "Menu", "Direct-To" and "Nearest" for quick navigation to frequently used functions, and because the aera 796 is customisable, the user can also pick favourite features or pages to anchor as icons along the bottom of the screen for even faster access. The display has large, fingertouchable icons with intuitive pictures and labels to indicate their function such as: map, terrain, 3D Vision, WPT info, FPL list, active FPL, numbers, doc viewer, charts, and tools. Pilots can choose any of these functions by simply touching the appropriate icon. The touchscreen interface also allows the pilot to quickly pan across the map and pinch zoom.
The aera 795 features 3D Vision, a unique 3D view of database-generated terrain. 3D Vision uses GPS position and the terrain-alerting database to recreate a behind-the-aircraft perspective view of the topographic landscape. The resulting virtual reality display offers pilots a supplemental 3D depiction of land and water features including terrain, obstacles, runways and airport signposts all shown in relative proximity to the aircraft. With the flick of a finger, the 3D view can be rotated around the aircraft to easily view the surrounding terrain. Using forward-looking terrain avoidance capability, the aera 795 predicts in advance where potential hazards may exist and colorizes the landscape showing amber or red overlays on those areas. Any towers or obstacles that may encroach upon the flight path are colour highlighted and clearly displayed with height-appropriate symbology.
New features include a built-in digital document viewer that enables the pilot to load and view PDF documents, JPEG photos, and many other electronically formatted materials including checklists and detailed performance/procedural data from the aircraft flight manual. There is also a convenient scratch pad for writing down clearances or other important notes.
The addition of optional City Navigator data on the Aera 795 allows the user to search and locate any desired surface address for use as a flight plan waypoint or for aerial direct-to navigation. This makes it even easier for helicopter and fixed-wing operators to respond to critical missions around streets and highways, survey land or perform search and rescue operations.
