[Avionics Today 07-20-2016] Garmin has released two Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) transponders specifically for experimental aircraft: the GTX 35R, which meets Out requirements and the GTX 45R that offers ADS-B Out, as well as ADS-B In benefits.

Designed specifically for Experimental Amateur-Built (EAB) and Light Sport Aircraft (LSA), these new transponders are integrated and controlled by G3X and G3X Touch systems. The GTX 45R unlocks more capabilities for pilots by displaying ADS-B traffic, subscription-free weather, GPS position data and attitude information within select Garmin portables and mobile applications via Bluetooth and Connext wireless technology. Hard-wired display interfaces for the GTX 45R include G3X Touch, the GTN 650/750 touchscreen series, GNS 430W/530W navigators and select portables.
