Loaded with features, but fits in the palm of your hand

The aera series from Garmin packs an incredible number of features into a compact case that measures less than 1” thick. This series of compact mini-MFDs shows off Garmin’s industry-leading expertise in both aviation and automotive GPSs.

Accessories
The aera utilizes Garmin’s unique single wire mounts, one for your airplane’s yoke and one for your car’s dash. These organize the maze of wires coming out of your GPS into a single one. There is only one connection to the back of the aera, making it fast and easy to move from plane to car and back again. Also includes carrying case, wall charger, cigarette lighter adapter and yoke mount.

Intuitive touch-screen interface
The area is the easiest-to-use Garmin yet. The iPhone-like home screen uses simple icons, so there are no more pages and chapters to scroll through. This gives you one-touch access to every feature, from maps to XM weather. And entering data is just as easy—a full keyboard pops up on-screen to enter airport identifiers or city names in just seconds.

Better than expected
Out of the box and in my garage, it displayed my location as though I had been outside with clear view of the satellites. No other GPS I own has that kind of sensitivity. Very happy so far! Haven't had it long enough to rate Durability or Reliability. Bob Kuriger

Auto part of this GPS isnt all that good.
I am a truck driver and tried using this GPS to give me my route. I don't know why it wanted to take me out of my way, I know the best and shortest route and I would get lost or just plane waste my time following its route. I just hope the aviation part works better. Not impressed for the price of this thing.
