At the Helicopter Association International's Heli-Expo Convention in Orlando, Garmin unveiled a new digital audio panel, the GMA 350, that's now available for fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. (I got a preview a few weeks before at Garmin's headquarters in Olathe, Kansas.) The new audio panel features some very cool though still basic voice recognition abilities. Those capabilities will grow, says Garmin, as the product matures, and be upgradeable through software. But the real story of the GMA 350 is that it's a digital product, the first from Garmin. It features an all-new digital automatic squelch, the best by far of any Garmin audio panel. There are, indeed, features galore, many of which pilots have wanted for years.
