The Garmin 695 is an ultimate aviation portable with features that focus on aviation-only navigation and mapping. Garmin's 695 features a large screen with VFR or IFR map display and is your own personal avionics system. Measuring 144W x 196H x 51 D mm the Garmin 695 weighs just over 1 Kg. The reason behind these dimensions, is the screen. Providing about three times the display area as a 495. Bright 7-inch (17.78 cm) diagonal WVGA sunlight-readable display makes it easy to see detailed mapping day or night. Conveniently view a wider area of map on its large-format display. The bezel that frames the screen includes soft keys at the bottom for quick access to features and a joystick control for easy operation. The 695 also features fast 5Hz graphical rendering of the panel page and datafields for smoother presentation of flight data.
Enhance Situational Awareness
The Garmin 695 features a realistic "view from space" satellite imagery basemap. It comes with a built-in Jeppesen database, and Atlantic terrain database. It also includes an obstacles database for Europe. Using this information, the 695 displays your flight route over contour terrain mapping. With information from the terrain and obstacles databases, the 695 monitors your current position in relation to surrounding terrain to provide alerts. Even customize your own minimum clearance levels to receive terrain cautions.
Similar to several other portable Garmin devices, the 695 includes the following enhanced software capabilities:
- Airspace Declutter
The GPSMAP 695 features the airspace declutter feature of the GPSMAP 495/496. Just select the maximum altitude and any airspace above this figure will not appear on the mapping page. If you fly higher than the maximum altitude selected then the data will automatically be displayed again.
- VFR or IFR Mapping
Depending on your flying, you can configure the GPSMAP 695 to display detailed information for enhanced mapping in a VFR format or to emulate the IFR enroute charts to which you might be accustomed. The VFR mapping now displays IFR enroute airways boundaries for situational awareness and in IFR map mode it will display these boundaries along with Low and High airways. As in traditional Garmin style all mapping is fully customizable by you to display features satisfactorily for you.
- PrivateAirports and Heliports, VRPs
The included private airports and heliports database provides even more navigation and emergency "nearest" options. VRPs (Visual Reference Points) are also included and fully searchable as part of your route in preflight planning.
Receive Altitude-Sensitive Alerts
When in the air, Garmin's new Smart Airspace™ feature makes it easier than ever to identify what airspace lies ahead. Smart Airspace automatically highlights airspace close to your current altitude and de-emphasizes airspace away from the current altitude, which gives you increased situational awareness.
