Subscription-free weather for the iPad

Garmin was first to introduce datalink weather for portable devices over a decade ago, forever changing the way pilots fly. Now Garmin is bringing the benefits of in-flight weather to your iPad – without a monthly subscription. The new GDL 39 is a compact, portable ADS-B receiver that delivers weather, traffic and GPS information to the cockpit all in one package.

Features:

  • Subscription-free ADS-B weather, including animated NEXRAD radar, METARs, TAFs, NOTAMs, TFRs and more
  • Dual band receiver (978 UAT and 1090 ES) allows for reception of ADS-B traffic, with Garmin's TargetTrend display
  • Built-in WAAS GPS delivers accurate position data for moving map features
  • Bluetooth connection to your iPad allows for two devices to wirelessly connect simultaneously
  • View complete status information in the Garmin Pilot app
  • The optional battery is included in this package

Requires Garmin Pilot app to work with iPad or Android devices.

Requires cigarette lighter cable (included, works with 12 or 24 volt systems) or battery pack (included) for operation. ADS-B coverage varies by location and altitude – does not work on the ground in most locations. Coverage not available outside US.

Not all traffic will be shown; coverage will vary based on equipment and nearby aircraft. In order to maximize available traffic information for the display, the aircraft should also be equipped with a compliant ADS-B Out solution like the GDL 88 or GTX 330ES/33/23 ES transponders.

Love the Free Weather
Works as advertised and the price is great. We cancelled the XM weather, which will pay for the GDL39 very quickly.

It's great once my issues were sorted out
Ordered this product from Sporty's in February. Out of the box I was having some traffic reception and BluTooth connection issues. After almost a week of attempting to contact Garmin Support through email their answers all but helped the situation. After calling I was disappointed with the quality of help I received from the very impatient man from tech support. After some issues out of the box were dealt with, it works as expected and would recommend for furthering convienence and simplicity for traveling.

Great product, with once exception
Ordered this to use my iPad in the cockpit for VFR flying only. Pairs easily with iPad and is picked up quickly if turning iPad off then back on again. My only complaint for this product is the battery life (if you purchase the battery). I can only get 2.5 hours or so on a battery which is a big limiting factor on long trips.

Pros: Signal is strong. Battery works great about 3 hours if needed. Once setup, it is fully automatic and simple. Cons: Setup way more difficult than had to be. Beware to download the GDL Utility to upgrade firmware and software. Then it is easy. I use it with Garmin Pilot on my android tablet (Galaxy 2). Had another product but wanted more reliability in ADS-B and overall use. So far, worked great on a couple long country trips. Although target interface is good, just don't expect to see a lot of targets. Not enough ADS-B out units going and the ground signals, although available are not strong. I don't believe that is because of the GDL. Overall, I am happy. For setup, my tablet paired quickly but the GDL would not talk to my tablet. Hard to find documentation indicated trying the GDL utility app. That upgraded the unit, but it took a while to figure that one out.
