Pilot Preferred aviation weather package and the SiriusXM All Access audio
programming package at no cost with GDL 52
Combining a dual-band ADS-B “In” datalink with a SiriusXM satellite
weather/music receiver in a single, compact remote unit, GDL 52R is the
all-in-one aviation weather, traffic and audio entertainment solution for pilots
flying experimental/amateur-built or light sport aircraft. When installed with
your G3X Touch series avionics, the GDL 52R receiver makes it easy to tap into
features that aid situational awareness while making your time aloft even more
enjoyable. You get full SiriusXM coverage — accessible from ground or air —
combined with the subscription-free weather and traffic features of an ADS-B
“In” datalink. Together, these 2 datalink technologies bring a world of
safety-enhancing information — plus access to more than 150 channels of
digital-quality music, news, sports and other entertainment programming —
directly to your cockpit.
Works with a Variety of Devices
Providing multiple display outputs and viewing options, GDL 52R works not
only with your G3X Touch avionics, but it can also communicate simultaneously
with the Garmin Pilot app running on your compatible iPad tablet or other mobile
devices³. Likewise, if you fly with an aera 660, aera 796 or aera 795 series
aviation portable, the receiver’s data links can also be accessed (via wired or
wireless connection) with these products as well. GDL 52R is able to support up
to 2 Connext wireless connections for your devices while simultaneously
providing wired connections for 2 other devices. Better yet, with the
connectivity that links your mobile device app and GDL 52R, a single
subscription lets you stream SiriusXM services onto multiple portables or mobile
devices. 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 — 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 52R 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 portable or panel displays can display
animated graphical weather plus METARs, TAFs, winds and temperatures aloft,
PIREPs, NOTAMs and other features linked from ADS-B. Better still, to help you
maintain the most current weather picture, your GDL 52R 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
With your GDL 52R, you can choose wired or wireless Bluetooth audio
connections to enjoy the high-quality audio entertainment channels provided by
SiriusXM1. Volume adjustments and station selection may be accessed through your
compatible G3X Touch display, Garmin aviation portable or mobile device app. If
you prefer, you can also opt to hardwire GDL 52R through your compatible audio
panel (or use the wireless connectivity of our GMA 245 or GMA 245R) for routing
through the cabin headsets.
Spot Potential Traffic Threats
To aid in situational awareness, GDL 52R 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), GDL 52R 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 52R feature set includes a built-in WAAS GPS receiver. This enables GDL
52R 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.
One Solution, Many Capabilities
For pilots who want the best in U.S. datalink weather coverage plus an
impressive array of traffic, navigation and audio entertainment options, GDL 52R
is the ideal 1-box, dual-network solution. 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 support team.
