Highly recommended. Having ADS-B and SXM weather available as in-flight weather is a relief and for any flight.

3 weeks agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGarmin GDL52We’re using this unit in a Challenger 300 with heated windshields. We have an external XM receiver antenna mounted on the glareshield in an area where there are no heating elements. The until receives “excellent” signals from SXM. We transmitt it all to my iPad with Garmin Pilot installed. Works perfectly ! !May 8, 2018Purchased
3 months agoI purchased the GDL-52 to link with my Aera 796
Via Bluetooth and it works great. It paired up after I updated the software on my 796 to 5.40.
ADS-B works great, Sirius XM works great.
And all the wires that were all over the cockpit to operate my Aera 796 are GONE.
My Aera 796 is now truely portable with SiriusXM and ADS-B
I could just keep going with all the things I LOVE
About the GDL-52. Thanks Garmin
