Pilot Preferred aviation weather package and the SiriusXM All Access audio
programming package at no cost with GDL 52
Providing an easy-to-use and completely portable aviation satellite link, the
compact GDL 52 combines SiriusXM coverage — accessible from ground or air — with
the subscription-free weather and traffic features of an ADS-B “In” datalink.
Together, these 2 network link technologies bring a world of safety-enhancing
features — plus access to more than 150 channels of digital-quality music, news,
sports and other entertainment programming — directly to your cockpit. Better
still, you can use our Connext wireless connectivity to stream this information
onto multiple Garmin aviation portables (including aera 660, aera 796 or aera
795 series) as well as iPad tablets and mobile devices with the Garmin Pilot
app. So you get more access — on more devices — without spending more money.
The Ultimate Weather Watcher
Continuous SiriusXM satellite updates — accessible by ground and air — can
help you make better, more timely flight decisions. The SiriusXM network’s
powerful satellites deliver seamless coverage across the continental U.S. and
its coastal regions as well as southern Canada. (see
coverage map.) Choose from available SiriusXM Aviation weather packages that
provide METAR data and animated NEXRAD imagery plus current reports on
precipitation, lightning, winds aloft, echo tops, turbulence, freezing levels,
TFRs and more.
Alternatively, the GDL 52 portable receiver also provides subscription-free
access in the U.S. to ADS-B Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather
information. With this, your compatible devices can display animated graphical
weather plus METARs, TAFs, winds and temperatures aloft, PIREPs, NOTAMs and
other features linked from ADS-B. And to help you maintain the most current
weather picture, your GDL 52 receiver can queue the weather from ADS-B and/or
SiriusXM while your display device is sleeping or turned off so it automatically
updates when you turn the screen back on.
Great Sound Made Easy
By simply connecting a compatible Bluetooth headset or audio panel to GDL
52, you can wirelessly listen to your choice of high-quality audio entertainment
channels provided by SiriusXM. Volume adjustments and station selection may be
accessed through your compatible Garmin aviation portable or mobile device app.
If you prefer, a 3.5 mm stereo audio jack positioned on the side of your GDL 52
makes it easy to provide a hardwired audio out connection to an auxiliary device
or audio panel in your aircraft.
Spot Potential Traffic Threats
To aid in situational awareness, GDL 52 can also receive ADS-B position
reports directly from other aircraft in your vicinity. In the U.S., 2
frequencies (978 UAT and 1090 ES) are approved by the FAA for ADS-B broadcasts,
so GDL 52 offers access to both frequencies. This allows you to see the most
comprehensive view of all ADS-B “Out” equipped targets in your vicinity. Your
compatible display4 will alert you by announcing traffic targets both audibly
and visually. Spoken audio alerts announce “Traffic, Traffic” to get you looking
View Enhanced Traffic Features
To further extend your traffic monitoring capability (on compatible
displays), the GDL 52 receiver also allows access to our TargetTrend relative
motion tracking technology. This feature gives you a faster, more intuitive way
to judge the direction and closure rate of intruding targets relative to your
aircraft’s position. So, rather than a fixed “snapshot” of the traffic
situation, TargetTrend provides a more dynamic “velocity-based” display that
shows which aircraft trajectories are most likely to converge with your own. For
example, if traffic is ahead of you and traveling along the same track but at a
slower rate, the motion vector would point opposite of its indicated direction
of flight to show you are overtaking the traffic. The result — you’re able to
make faster, better target avoidance decisions.
For airport operations, TerminalTraffic technology (a part of the
comprehensive Garmin suite of Terminal Safety Solutions) enables ADS-B-equipped
surface targets to be displayed on your device’s SafeTaxi diagram so you can see
what’s happening with traffic on busy runways and taxiways. ADS-B-equipped
aircraft in-flight are easily distinguished from ground vehicles and taxiing
aircraft, which are displayed using distinct colors and symbols. Thus,
TerminalTraffic provides a clear, real-time overview of on-surface activity in
the airport environment.
Built-in GPS and Attitude Sensors for SVX Display
In addition to its weather, traffic and audio entertainment capabilities,
your GDL 52 feature set includes a built-in WAAS GPS receiver. This enables GDL
52 to deliver highly accurate aircraft position, speed and altitude information
to your compatible mobile device app. Also, built-in attitude sensors enable
select Garmin aviation portables and apps with our SVX synthetic vision
technology to serve as a backup attitude reference5 during your flights. With
virtual terrain, obstacles, runways, horizon cues, HSI, GPS speed, altitude and
more, this brings a whole new perspective to your portable navigation.
Battery Power for Hours
GDL 52 is a true go-anywhere device. A rechargeable built-in lithium-ion battery
allows GDL 52 to operate for up to 5 hours on a single charge. And for operation
connected to power, you can plug in via the included vehicle power cable or
microUSB port positioned on the side of the receiver.
One Solution, Many Possibilities
For pilots who want the best in U.S. datalink weather coverage plus an
impressive array of traffic, navigation and audio entertainment options, the GDL
52 portable receiver is the ideal 1-box, dual-network solution. With its
versatile connections and compact size, you can even enjoy benefits of SiriusXM
audio outside the cockpit — anywhere you want to drive, pedal or walk within the
SiriusXM coverage area. And by going with Garmin, your receiver will be backed
by a comprehensive 1-year warranty — and by the industry’s No. 1-ranked product
