aera 510 GPS Fly/Drive Receiver

Featuring crisp 4.3-inch QVGA wide-format displays with touchscreen interface, Garmin’s aera series of GPS portables are the perfect fly/drive navigation solution. All four aera models come with preloaded automotive maps, a built-in terrain/obstacles aviation database, Garmin’s patented Panel Page, and more. So, you can transition smoothly from runways to roadways with the aera model that best matches your needs and budget.

Consider the aera 510

Stepping up from Garmin’s base model aera 500, the 510 version adds support for NEXRAD imaging and all the other great XM WX™ satellite weather capabilities¹. Plus, you can use the XM Radio capability to enjoy 170+ channels of digital music, news and other programming through your headset or cabin audio system. (The GXM 40 smart antenna is included with your aera.) In addition to the XM satellite access, the aera 510 comes fully preloaded with detailed aerial mapping of terrain contours and structural features. So, you’ll have a wealth of information resources at your fingertips, to help you make better flying decisions. What’s more, the simplicity of a single integrated cabling solution for power, music and datalink weather antenna options makes for easy, clutter-free aera connectivity in the cockpit.

In the Air, It’s a “Mini-MFD

Your aera 510 comes ready to fly, right out of the box. Its detailed chart-style shaded mapping and extensive terrain and aviation databases (including private airports and heliports) help you visualize your flight path in relation to nearby navaids, terrain, SUAs, obstruc¬tions, and so on. Terrain/obstacle detail is shown in standard 30 arc-second resolution on the aera 510 display. And, as in all the aera models, GPS updating is provided at a super-fast 5 Hz rate. For added safety, a database-driven terrain advisory feature offers TAWS-like color coding and pop-up alerts when possible obstructions or ground proximity conflicts loom ahead.

Reach New Levels of Awareness

The aera 510’s graphical Terrain page offers both overhead and vertical profile views of the landscape beneath your wings. And an IFR map mode lets you display and navigate on high or low enroute airways – while using your touchscreen map cursor to reference MEAs (Minimum Enroute Altitudes) and distances between intersections. For traffic awareness, an optional power/data cable (sold separately) makes it easy to interface your aera with the Garmin GTX 330 Mode S transponder in your aircraft, so you can access and display TIS traffic alerts in busy terminal airspace. What’s more, you can also use the aera to load communications frequencies into your Garmin SL 40 Comm or SL 30 Nav/Comm transceiver.

Out of the Heavens, Onto the Highways

When you arrive at your destination runway, aera lets you hit the ground running – with full automotive GPS capability and preloaded City Navigator® NT street mapping. Operating much like Garmin’s popular nüvi® line of touchscreen auto navigators, your aera 510 offers voice-guided turn-by-turn directions with text-to-speech audio technology that calls out streets by name. In addition, there’s built-in Bluetooth® support for wireless hands-free calling with your compatible mobile phone. And the aera’s built-in “points of interest” database offers helpful guidance to millions of motels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and other local attractions. You can use the aera’s XM satellite capability to watch the weather or listen to XM Radio entertainment while driving. And to speed your transition from aircraft to automotive mode, a unique ”smart mount” for the aera offers instant clip-and-go car navigation.

Garmin aera series: It’s the ultimate fly/drive option.
