SkyCatcher G300 MFD

SkyCatcher G300 MFD

Sebring, FL

The MFD is optional in the SkyCatcher. It's based on the Garmin 696 portable GPS hardware and software, but adds a page for displaying engine instruments. Like the 696, it can display a moving map, terrain, XM weather, and the AOPA Directory. A weight and balance page lets you enter weights for the pilot, passenger, fuel and any baggage. Garmin’s SafeTaxi is included with the second display. It gives greater map detail, including runways and taxiways, when viewing airports at close range on the moving map. Although the G300 manual says that it can display optional electronic instrument charts, Cessna has told me they won't be offering them at introduction.
