The GTX™ 330/330D are Mode S, IFR-certified
transponders with datalink capability, including local traffic
updates. Now, from the comfort of your aircraft,
you can receive FAA Traffic Information Services (TIS),
including location, direction, altitude, and climb/descent
information of nearby aircraft on your GNS
530 or GNS 430.
The result is improved communication between aircraft and
air traffic control (ATC), providing U.S. pilots with greater
traffic awareness in busy terminal areas.
Built on the same receiver and transmitter technology
as our best-selling GTX 327, these units' solid-state
design increases efficiency by using less power, creating
less heat emissions, and eliminating warm-up time. Both
units feature an easy-reading DSTN Liquid Crystal Display
which reverses the numbers out of black for optimal viewing,
an innovative keypad that makes entering a squawk code a
snap, and a dedicated VFR button for quick-and-easy VFR
squawking. The GTX 330 and 330D also offer several timing
and display functions: flight time, count-up and count down
timers, and current pressure altitude. Other features include
remote ident and auto standby, plus altitude monitor with
The GTX 330D contains all of the features of the GTX 330,
and adds antenna diversity for improved visibility to TCAS-equipped
aircraft flying above you.
Together, the functionality of the GTX 330/330D, used
with the innovative GNS 430 and 530, represents a whole
new standard in transponder utility.
Please note: The GTX 330 and GTX 330D both meet
the requirements of Level 2
Mode-S to satisfy the upcoming European Mode-S mandate
