Navigate with Garmin caliber GPS data on the mobile device of your choice. The GLO 2 receiver brings you the best of both worlds by combining GPS and GLONASS receivers with Bluetooth wireless technology so you can enjoy precise position information on your iPad, iPhone or Android device.

The Garmin Glo now provides GPS location services for up to 4 Bluetooth devices at once! GLO wirelessly connects up to four (4) Apple and Android devices via Bluetooth simultaneously.

The Accuracy of GPS and GLONASS*
GLO 2 can receive position information from both the GPS and GLONASS satellite constellations, allowing it to connect to up to 24 more satellites than devices that rely on GPS alone. This allows GLO 2 to lock on to satellites approximately 20% faster and remain connected even at high speed. What’s more, GLO 2 updates its position information at 10 times per second; that’s up to 10 times more often than the GPS receivers in many mobile devices.

* GLONASS or Global Navigation Satellite System, is a radio-based satellite navigation system operated for the Russian government by the Russian Aerospace Defence Forces. It both complements and provides an alternative to the United States' Global Positioning System (GPS) and is currently the only alternative navigational system in operation with global coverage and of comparable precision.

Set It up and Go
Using Bluetooth technology, the GLO 2 receiver wirelessly pairs to your mobile device. Just set GLO 2 within range of your mobile device, and in moments, you’ll be receiving the GLO 2 receiver’s position data. It has up to 13 hours of battery life to keep your position on long trips, and charging GLO 2 between uses is easy with the included USB cable or optional 12/24 V vehicle power cable. The optional friction mount keeps the receiver safe on your dashboard and in full view of satellites.

6-Month Garmin Pilot Subscription
Select the bundle to turn your iPad or iPhone into the ideal cockpit companion. A 6-month subscription to the Garmin Pilot app puts full-featured navigation — including our decades of experience with rich, interactive mapping, 3D Vision, aviation weather, global flight plan filing, electronic flight bag capabilities, optional traffic/weather, pilot logbook and more — right at your fingertips.

Great things come in small packages

  • By Lenn the World Traveller from Kota Kinabalu Sabah MALAYSIA on Tuesday, December 12, 2017
  • Pros: Small and works like a charm
  • Review: Wonderful piece of technology. Satellite signal acquisition in seconds. Very easy to pair with iPhone and Android devices. I was able to connect to 4 devices simultaneously with no problems. I'm planning to use it with offline GPS map applications for driving in Greece. I tested it at home and it works great for driving and for locating places while on foot.

GLO is good-to-go

  • By A Customer from Portland, OR on Friday, May 26, 2017
  • Pros: Small, lightweight, simple, replaceable battery
  • Review: I use the GLO to extend the GPS strength for an android tablet and it works great. I also use it in the field to collect data, so I placed it in a waterproof container when it rains. Contrary to what others have said, you can connect up to 4 devices to a singe GLO.

Garmin pilot with garmin glo test drive

  • By John W from Battle Creek MI USA on Saturday, December 20, 2014
  • Pros: Quick link up, easy to use, durable.
  • Review: Out of the box this device was ready to go once the Ipilot app was downloaded. It works great with other map apps as well but I wanted to try garmin. The terrain warning feature as well as the drag and drop info ball is becoming a helpful set of tools as I get used to using them. The feature of Bluetooth to up to 3 devices allows me to run the app on my iPhone and iPad at the same time using two features at once is incredibly handy. I've found that the heading bezel is dead on during flight as well as the zoomed in runway depiction feature. You will know exactly where the field is even as you fly over it to enter the pattern. A great feature to have if all else fails during IFR. I'm new to this technology so keep my level of excitement in mind when you do your review.

Garmin pilot with garmin glo test drive

  • By John W from Battle Creek MI USA on Saturday, December 20, 2014
  • Pros: Quick link up, easy to use, durable.
  • Cons: Why doesn't someone make an easy to use slider on the mapping screen to dim or switch to night use without having to hunt for it? Sounds like an easy thing to develop.
