Works as expected. My Aera 660 would occasionally lose signal both on the ground and in-flight. Now always has a full GPS lock no matter where I am - even has a partial signal in the hangar.

Excellent purchase
Excellent purchase. I recently had the AirGizmos panel mount installed on my aircraft for the Aera 660 and was constantly in and out of signal before I made this purchase. The AirGizmo has a notch that easily allows the antenna to be attached while the device is mounted. Upon attaching the antenna, I went from spotty signal at best to instant full bars inside of my hangar. Cheapest purchase I made for my panel upgrade but most helpful!

A shopper on Feb 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Garmin does not list that device as compatible.
IF using in airplane does it help at all?
A shopper on May 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will depend on where you are able to place the stand alone unit. If you are able to set it where it has a clear view of the sky then the antenna should not be needed. If you are placing the unit without a clear view of the sky then this would be beneficial.

What mounting provisions does the antenna have and how long is cable?
A shopper on Aug 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I used a suction cup, with I think actually came with the external ADS-B antenna to mount it in the rear side window of our Skylane. The cable is 8 or 9' long. I ran it along the rear seat and under the carpet to the Stratus which is on the floor between the pilot seats.

I fly a Challenger 604. We have a stratus 3 to receive ADSB information on our iPads, and also for GPS position. I bought the ADSB external antenna which we have attached to the rearmost passenger window. It works great. But, we aren’t receiving the GPS signal a lot of the time, so I’m considering getting this antenna. Does it also come with a suction cup, or any other method of attachment besides the magnet? I don’t think the magnet will work for us.
Conrad on May 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It does not have a suction cup. It has a non-slip backing on the bottom and it will sit on the dash.
Will this work with a garmin dezl 580?
Adam S on May 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I’m not familiar with the 580, but the issue is the connector. The remote antenna has an unthreaded push-in type that consists of a metal cylinder about 3/16” in diameter with a nylon insulator core that has 1/32” hole down the center that mates to the central pin connector in the connector on the GPS. I know w some of the older Garmin units used a BNC connector. It won’t work with a BNC connector.

Why does this have a magnet in it if it is for an airplane?..most airplanes are aluminum and some have instruments that do not do well near magnets
Steve V on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My observation is this antenna is the same one that SiriusXM supplies with the car kits for their consumer products and is made to "stick" on the roof of a car. It is just re-purposed to use with aviation receiver.
Will it work with Garmin GDL 3D?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2017
