Comments: Garmin does not recommend the use of the Narco and King adapters with the GTX-327. This Transponder should be considered a new installation when upgrading from the AT-50/AT-50A/AT-150 and KT-78A/KT-76A.
The GTX-327 is Garmin's best Mode C Transponder. It lacks the GTX-330's TIS traffic features, or the ADS-B capability of newer Transponders. However, it you are using other avionics for ADS-B (or are not subject to this mandate), the GTX-327 is an excellent unit, with many helpful convenience features.
The GTX-327 produces 200 watts of transmission power, offering long range and operation up to 50,000 feet. Plus, the GTX-327 does this without a cavity. As a result, reliability is improved, and no warm-up time is needed before operation.
The GTX-327 features:
• Large, easy-to-read digital display
• Numeric keypad for easy squawk entry
• Dedicated VFR button to squawk 1200
• Count up and count down timers
• Displays pressure altitude from your encoder
• 4096 discrete codes
• Mode C compatibility
• System test capability
You may also be interested in an Encoder to use with this GTX-327. When installed with an Encoder, the GTX-327 will report both your position and altitude to ATC (Mode C).
