GLO Aviation Package, Portable GPS & GLONASS Receiver for Mobile DevicesFly with the portable device of your choice and Garmin-caliber GPS data at the same time. GLO for Aviation brings you the best of both worlds by combining GPS/GLONASS receivers with Bluetooth® technology so you can get precise position information on your iPad, iPhone or Android device. Garmin has developed a special GLO for Aviation package. The GLO for Aviation package comes with an anti-skid mount, power cable, USB cable, and a free six-month trial for Garmin Pilot, the newest aviation navigation app for Apple and Android mobile devices.
Enjoy the Accurracy of GPS + GLONASS
GLO for Aviation can receive position information from both the GPS and GLONASS satellite constellations, allowing it to connect to up to 24 more satellites than devices that rely on GPS alone. This allows GLO to lock on to satellites approximately 20% faster and keep up with even the most demanding jet speeds. What’s more, GLO updates its position information 10x per second – up to 10x more often than the GPS receivers in many mobile devices. When you access geo-referenced charts, Garmin SafeTaxi or the moving map display in Garmin Pilot (6 months of which come free with your GLO purchase), you’ll know that what you see is the most precise picture possible.
Set it Up and Fly
Using Bluetooth® technology, GLO for Aviation wirelessly pairs to your mobile device. Just use the included mount to set GLO on your glare screen and within moments, you’ll be receiving GLO’s position data. The device features up to 12 hours of battery life to keep your position on even the longest of flights, and charging GLO between uses is a cinch with the included USB cable or 12/24 Volt cigarette lighter adapter.
The Garmin Pilot app has the ability to look at weather, plan and file flight plans as well as help you navigate. Also, electronic flight bag capabilities help minimize the amount of paper needed for navigation reference in the cockpit. The app comes with IFR high and low enroute charts, VFR sectionals and Garmin FliteCharts®. Optional geo-referenced FliteCharts and SafeTaxi® diagrams are available to assist in navigating approach procedures and unfamiliar airports, and all charts are downloaded to the device for easy access while in flight.
