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 on.
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 reference3during your
flights. With virtual terrain, obstacles, runways, horizon cues, HSI, GPS speed,
altitude and more, this brings a whole new perspective to your portable
Battery Power for
GDL 51 is a true
go-anywhere device. A built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery allows GDL 51
to wirelessly receive SiriusXM data for up to 7 hours on a single charge. And
for operation connected to power, you can plug in via the included vehicle
power cable or microUSB port positioned on the side of the receiver.
