Garmin GLO for Aviation Portable Aviation GPS Receiver

The Garmin GLO, a portable GPS and GLONASS* receiver that brings Garmin’s industry-leading GPS technology to mobile devices.

Fly with the portable device of your choice and Garmin-caliber GPS data at the same time. GLO for Aviation combines GPS/GLONASS receivers with Bluetooth technology so you can get precise position information on your iPad, iPhone or Android device.

NEW: 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. It offers up to 12 hours of battery life and a position update rate of up to 10 times per second (update rate may be limited by the host device). This is approximately 10 times faster than the internal GPS receivers of most mobile devices. And, Garmin GLO is approved by Apple for use with its products.

When using both GPS and GLONASS satellites, the time it takes for the receiver to "lock on" to a position is, on average, approximately 20 percent faster than using GPS alone. Furthermore, when using both GPS and GLONASS, the receiver has access to 24 more satellites than using GPS alone.

Unit Size (WxHxD): .70 x 1.65 x 3.04 inches (1.78 x 4.19 x 7.72 cm)
Weight: 2.12 oz (60.1 grams)
Accuracy: 3 meters
Battery: 1100 mAh, 12 hours battery life

Garmin part 010-01055-10

Great things come in small packages
by Lenn the World Traveller from Kota Kinabalu Sabah MALAYSIA 

Pros: Small and works like a charm
Cons: Portable friction mount doesn't hold very well. Slides easily.
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 

Pros: Small, lightweight, simple, replaceable battery
Cons: Battery life only 12 hours, no outdoor weather resistant option
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 

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.
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 GLO works great
by Ross from Redding CA USA 

Pros: Great satellite acquisition battery endurance great
Cons: None so far
Review: Works like a champ so far, have only used a couple of times, but acquires satellites quickly and stays locked on no matter where it is in the cockpit. The included 6 mos trial for Garmin Pilot is great also, really like the app with iPad mini. I have not tried it with Foreflight yet.

Good but no way to monitor battery
by Michael from VA USA 

Pros: Very accurate and combined with Garmin Pilot is a very capable FMS.
Cons: No way to monitor battery. Extreme oversight by Garmin.
Review: The GLO when used with Garmin Pilot is terrific! My only critique is I have no way to determine when it is fully charged or when the battery is getting low in flight. An iOS update caused the GLO not to sync up but I called Garmin and they walked me through an ipad hard reset in about two minutes and it worked great. Flying instrument approaches and seeing the plane flying along on the approach plate was amazing! My instructor said its so good it almost takes the challenge out of flying IFR. GLO battery says good for ten hours but I would limit it to six hours in flight to be safe if you are relying on it running on battery.

I would likemtontry iPad with an internal gps to compare
by A Customer from New Jersey 

Pros: You don't need wireless only GPS to work with foreflight
Cons: Requires a lot of battery from iPad. Have to ensure GPS is charged also. Hard to sync at times.
Review: Their are a few things I dislike about the glo. The Bluetooth drains the battery. It's hard to find a place Ina helicopter for it to stay without having to readjust throughout the flight. It sometimes is very hard to connect and have a strong enough signal.

Good, but can overheat
by Charles from Ridgway CO USA 

Pros: Small size, quick fixes
Cons: overheaats and shuts down in sunlight
Review: The Garmin GLO can overheat and shut off if placed on the glareshield in sunlight. The skid plate (rubber boot) exacerbates the problem by acting as an insulator. The unit could be improved by making it white to reflect more light; (like the latest Stratus ADB-B receiver). Although the Garmin Pilot software sometimes does not display the GPS position from the GLO when Ipad indicates they are connected, I could not determine if that is a problem with the Pilot software or the GLO.

by A Customer from Shirley NY USA 

Pros: Blue tooth
Cons: Have to ensure both GPS and tablet are charged
Review: Their are a few things I dislike about this product. One being that Bluetooth drains the battery life prett fast on the ipad mini another is that while flying helicopters there are alot of vibrations and it is hard to find a place for it to get good reception without vibrating and falling to the ground

Good but has design flaws
by Mark Miller from Camarillo, CA 

Pros: Does everything it says in the literature
Cons: ON switch design is flawed, light is too bright, no battery level indicator, only hooks to one device at a time.
Review: The product works as advertised. However, there are some problems. The ON and OFF switch are programed backwards. To prevent accidental turn-on in the flight bag draining the battery, the ON switch should be a push and hold to turn it on rather than momentary (programing flaw). The button should also be recessed to prevent accidental turn on and drain of battery in flight bag (mechanical design flaw). The blue light is also way too bright for night flight. Also, there should be a battery level indicator. These are such problems I inserted a folded business card to protect the switch and hide half of the light (just slide the card back and forth in the rubber dash mount) - kinda mickey mouse but it works. Also, the Bad Elf Pro receiver will hook up 5 units at once so you can use your iphone as a back up to your ipad when using Foreflight which is very nice.

Run good with my Minipad
by Eric from Auberry CA USA 

Cons: Does not come with a 110 volt charger, I think it comes as an option. When charging the unit is on you can not turn it off to charge it. At night have to turn it over because of the led light is very bright but it works good upside down. Gets turned on easy when the switch gets bumped then it is dead when you need it. . ited
Review: Does the GPS job.

by Ramon - Sportcrcuiser flyer from Miami FL USA 
Pros: Very fast and accurate, link in a flash with the Sat.
Cons: the power on button is very sensitive and could be power on inside a bag and discharge the battery.
Review: Excellent, link with the sat inside the apartment, work fast and great.
Some problem is the power on button is very sensitive and could be power on inside a bag and discharge the battery.
For the price, it's the best.

by A Customer from Van nuys CA 

Pros: Size, connectivity flawless, works like you expect
Review: Worked right out of the box. Five stars but for one glaring mistake and two annoyances. The on off switch is in wrong location and can be inadvertently turned on in a pocket or bag so when you need it it is dead. The blue and amber lights are too bright for night operations and reflect off the windshield if it is on top of the glareshield. You can turn the GPS over but there needs to be non skid feet on top and bottom to do this satisfactorily. (Yes I know there is a non skid mount, but why.) Lastly there is no way to know the battery status.
