Affordable, Stand Alone ADS-B Solution
The GDL 84 provides an all-inclusive ADS-B solution for those aircraft owners looking to satisfy the January 2020 mandate, but do not have a WAAS GPS installed, and do not want to significantly modify the panel of the aircraft. The GDL 84 includes the Flight Stream Bluetooth® wireless gateway, allowing pilots to display advanced traffic and subscription-free weather information on a mobile device using Garmin Pilot™, so no panel mounted multi-function display is needed.
Industry-First Dual-Link Solution for Certified Aircraft
The GDL 84 provides an ADS-B Out solution for aircraft operating below 18,000 feet in the U.S., while offering access to subscription free traffic information. Using the built-in WAAS GPS receiver, the GDL-84 broadcasts precise position information to the ADS-B ground station network and ATC, as well as other ADS-B equipped aircraft. The first-of-its-kind dual-link capability allows the GDL 84 to receive on both the 978 MHz UAT and 1090 MHz frequency bands to provide the most complete situational picture in all phases of flight. The GDL-84 doesn’t depend on an installed panel display to provide the traffic and weather benefits. Rather, the GDL 84 is a straightforward solution that wirelessly transmits weather and traffic information via Flight Stream 110/210 to a mobile device. The GDL 84 is an all-inclusive solution, which meets regulatory requirements and gives pilots the added benefits without the cost associated with a large installation.
Preserve and Maintain Your Cockpit
Becoming rule-compliant and preserving the existing aircraft panel is important to many aircraft owners. Because of the versatility and wireless functionality of the GDL 84 with Flight Stream, the existing panel configuration remains intact. Garmin’s patented self-interrogation feature allows the GDL 84 to wirelessly communicate and interface with a wide range of general aviation transponders to synchronize squawk code and ident. This technology enables the ADS-B Out source to broadcast the same code as the transponder, eliminating the need to install an additional ADS-B control panel, further simplifying the installation and eases the burden of manually keeping two squawk codes in sync. The only panel modification required includes a single annunciator indicating ADS-B status.
