"The Garmin GTX 3000 Mode S Extended Squitter remote transponder and GDL 88 ADS-B datalink provides operators with a seamless and integrated path to meet the demands of air traffic modernisation initiatives around the world, [including Australia, Canada, Europe, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and the USA]," Garmin says.
