Coverage at any altitude

Continuous SiriusXM satellite updates — accessible by ground and air — can help you make better, more timely flight decisions. The SiriusXM network’s powerful satellites deliver seamless coverage across the continental U.S. and its coastal regions as well as southern Canada. Choose from available SiriusXM aviation packages that provide METAR data and animated NEXRAD imagery plus current reports on precipitation, lightning, winds aloft, echo tops, turbulence, freezing levels, TFRs and more. To help you maintain the most current weather picture, the GDL 52 receiver can queue the weather from SiriusXM while your display device is sleeping or turned off so it automatically updates when you turn the screen back on.

Dual band ADS-B receiver too

When flying in the US, the GDL 52 can also receive subscription-free weather from the FAA’s ADS-B ground stations. This includes NEXRAD radar, METARs, TAFs, TFRs, and more. In addition to comprehensive weather data, pilots utilizing GDL 52 can receive “dual-link” ADS-B traffic information and audible alerts to easily identify potential traffic conflicts. ADS-B traffic can be overlaid on the dedicated traffic page or the moving map, as well as IFR/VFR charts on compatible devices. Exclusive to Garmin displays, patented TargetTrend™ and TerminalTraffic™ technologies further enhance the traffic picture.
