Garmin is pleased to announce that the all-in-one GDL 52 portable aviation receiver is now available. The GDL 52 is the first portable receiver capable of receiving Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) weather and dual-link, as well as SiriusXM Aviation weather and audio for display and control on select portables and mobile devices. It provides GPS position data as well as back-up attitude information to compatible portable devices. Pilots utilizing the GDL 52 can receive ADS-B traffic information and audible alerts to easily identify potential traffic conflicts. ADS-B traffic is overlaid on the dedicated traffic page, the moving map page, and also displayed over IFR/VFR charts on compatible devices. Patented TargetTrend⢠and TerminalTraffic⢠further enhance the traffic picture. TargetTrend provides pilots with a more intuitive method of judging target trajectories and closure rates, while TerminalTraffic displays a comprehensive picture of ADS-B-equipped aircraft and ground vehicles throughout the airport environment on the moving map and SafeTaxi® airport diagram.
