Garmin’s least expensive ADS-B Out solution

Looking for a low cost, easy-to-install ADS-B Out system that keeps your existing Mode C transponder in place? Garmin’s innovative GDL 82 is the perfect solution. This 978 MHz UAT can be installed between your existing transponder and transponder antenna, so there’s no need for extensive panel work. Also includes a WAAS GPS for total compliance with the FAA’s 2020 ADS-B Out mandate.

Single-entry Squawk Code
The NextGen rules require that your ADS-B “Out” source must be able to squawk the same code as your transponder. GDL 82 will automatically synchronize with your onboard Mode A/C transponder for its squawk code and pressure altitude data and then transmit that data through its own datalink. Not only does this provide a single point of data entry for ADS-B “Out,” but it also allows you to meet the new regulations without the need for expensive control system or transponder upgrades. GDL 82 works in the background to make code entry fast and easy — while it’s helping to make your path to ADS-B compliance as simple, straightforward and cost-effective as it can possibly be.

Want to fly with anonymity?
There are private pilots. And then there are extra-private pilots who want to keep their identities off the traffic screens of other ADS-B “In” equipped aircraft (containing business competitors, perhaps?). GDL 82 and its UAT technology can allow for this extra measure of identity security with “Anonymous mode.” Most conventional ADS-B devices are designed to transmit your aircraft’s ICAO number — a discrete “hex code” assigned by FAA as part of your aircraft’s certificate of registration. If you’re flying VFR, however, you can have GDL 82 set to mask your aircraft’s ID from being transmitted to other receivers whenever your transponder’s squawk code is set to 1200. ATC can still track you with ADS-B precision. But your GDL 82 simply won’t transmit your aircraft’s N-number to other pilots in the airspace.

Includes GDL 82, connector kit, and GPS antenna. Requires installation. 978 MHz systems cannot be used above 18,000 feet or outside the United States.

Can the owner install? Or does it need to be installed by an avonics shop?
Jamie K on Apr 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am not a Garmin Rep. That being said, of course the owner can install, and it won't take a lot of effort. If you are semi literate with electrical wiring, all you will need is to first "install the box". It is going to need plus voltage (either 28 vdc or 12 vdc) and a ground. You are also going to need to wire in the USB interface. This is going to be 4 wires to a USB connector. This interface is then used to connect to your personal computer to program the unit. Garmin provides software for this part. There are then two optional wires. One is for a "fault" indication should you desire to have it. I don't have details on this, but it is logical to assume that the "fault" indication would illuminate if the GDL 82 was not reading your transponder data. The next wire hooks to the "anonymous switch" which when turned on, allows the unit to mask your personal identity when you are squawking 1200 VFR code. I consider this the most positive factor for buying UAT technology versus 1030 Extended Squitter transponders. The GDL-82 has the option of including a WAAS GPS. So in this configuration, you will remove the antenna connection on your current mode C and A transponder and and connect it to the GPL 82. Then a short jumper coax from the current transponder to the GDL82. Next a GPS coax from the GPS antenna to the GPLS 82. I know this sounds complicated, but it is not. The beauty of this design is that if your transponder dies, the GPL-82 will still send ADS-B out. If the GDL 82 goes bad, you still have your normal transponder mode A and C out. It is a good choice.,
Wiring requirements - what kind of wiring gage will this device need for a run of approx. 10-12 feet from the power panel?
A shopper on Jan 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Please contact Garmin Support for the wiring requirements.

Does this system have a "network" for traffic display on an iPad/ tablet?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2018
