Providing an easy-to-use and completely portable aviation satellite link, the
compact GDL 51 SiriusXM receiver lets you access continuous, detailed weather
information — plus more than 150 channels of digital-quality music, news, sports
and other entertainment programming. Better still, you can use our Connext

portables (including aera 660, aera 796 or aera 795 series) as well as iPad
tablets and other mobile devices with the Garmin Pilot app. So you get more
access — on more devices — without spending more money.
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 at any altitude 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 as well as current reports on
precipitation, lightning, winds aloft, echo tops, turbulence, freezing levels,
TFRs and more¹. And to help you maintain the most current weather picture, your
GDL 51 receiver can queue the weather from SiriusXM while your display device is
sleeping or turned off so it automatically updates when you turn the screen back
Great Sound Made Easy
By simply connecting a compatible Bluetooth headset or audio panel to GDL
51, you can wirelessly listen to your choice of high-quality audio entertainment
channels provided by SiriusXM¹. 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 51
makes it easy to provide a hardwired audio out connection to an auxiliary device
or audio panel in your aircraft.
Built-in GPS and Attitude Sensors for SVX Display
In addition to its satellite weather and audio entertainment capabilities, your
GDL 51 receiver’s feature set includes a built-in WAAS GPS receiver. This
enables GDL 51 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 reference3 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.
