Garmin GPSMAP 495

Garmin today unveiled the GPSMAP 495, a feature-rich trimmed down version of the GPSMAP 496, providing pilots with SafeTaxi airport diagrams, Smart Airspace, AOPA Airport directory data, and several other features. Garmin bills the device as an intermediary model to the 296 and 496, combining features from the 496 but maintaining a price close to the 296. Garmin is currently selling the GPSMAP 495 for $1600, and will be shipping in early April.

The GPS Map 495 features high-resolution terrain maps - terrain and obstacle alerting - and an update interval five times faster than traditional handheld units do. Garmin's SafeTaxi feature includes over 850 US airport diagrams, allowing pilots to see their exact location on the field in relation to airstrips, hangers, and taxiways.

The AOPA Airport Directory includes listings of over 5300 public-use airports, and over 7000 FBOs, including self-service fueling stations.
