Forget time-consuming manual updates via data card. Your GDL 60 offers database downloads directly to the aircraft1. You don’t need to be present for the process. Most databases will auto-synchronize across your avionics at power up.
With compatible avionics, your aircraft’s GDL 60 datalink can transmit flight and engine log data automatically1 to secure cloud storage7 after landing. You can view this data on devices running the Garmin Pilot app or share it online with your maintenance crew via the flyGarmin.com® website.
With GDL 60 and the Garmin Pilot app, it’s easy to keep tabs on your aircraft from virtually anywhere2. When appropriately equipped, an aircraft dashboard page lets you check active/standby database status, as well as Hobbs, tachometer and flight times, fuel quantity, battery voltage, OAT, oil temperature and aircraft GPS location4.
By adding the GDL 60 datalink to your system, you can use Connext to stream weather, traffic, AHRS, flight plans and other data from your avionics to flight apps such as Garmin Pilot and ForeFlight.
When installed with a GDL 69A SXM satellite receiver6, GDL 60 streaming capabilities can support remote tuning of SiriusXM® audio entertainment channels via the Garmin Pilot app on compatible mobile devices.
GDL 60 can also act as an interface to a GSR 56 satellite transceiver with Connext satellite services5. From the Garmin Pilot app, you can utilize in-flight text messaging or initiate voice calls to help you stay connected from virtually anywhere.
