Garmin has updated its iPad and iPhone-based Garmin Pilot to include Synthetic Vision (SV).

The upgraded application provides GPS-derived airspeed, altitude and vertical speed overlaid on a rich 3D topographic landscape. According to Garmin, the 3D Vision is transformed when optionally paired with the GDL 39 3D, which superimposes backup aircraft attitude information over the SVX display.

"With the addition of SV, Garmin Pilot takes a big step forward by offering pilots great situational awareness in all weather conditions, day or night,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “When combined with the GDL 39 3D, attitude information as well as ADS-B traffic and weather are all conveniently accessible within one application, further demonstrating our commitment to bringing safety enhancements to all pilots.”
