Good, but can overheat

  • By Charles from Ridgway CO USA on Wednesday, June 26, 2013
  • 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.

I would likemtontry iPad with an internal gps to compare

  • By A Customer from New Jersey on Tuesday, August 13, 2013
  • 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.
