The Garmin G1000 with WAAS & Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT)

WAAS-SVT Approach

WAAS turns all approved RNAV/GPS approaches into a precision approach just as, or more precise than an ILS approach. This gives you  the capability to go to a lower altitude on approach, which is usually the difference between being able to land or not.

With Synthetic Vision Technology you can see what is on the other side of the clouds, a digital representation of terrain, traffic, and obstacles right behind the primary instruments so you won’t miss a thing.
