Hardware overview

About the Garmin
GDL 52/52R receiver

Providing an easy-to-use satellite link with GPS position data and backup attitude (AHRS) , the compact and portable GDL 52 or the remote mount GDL 52R SiriusXM receiver combine SiriusXM Aviation service coverage — accessible from ground or air — with the free weather and traffic features of an ADS-B “In” datalink. Together, these two network link technologies bring a world of safety-enhancing features, plus access to more than 300 channels of digital-quality music, news, sports and other entertainment programming directly to your cockpit. (Entertainment only available with Garmin Pilot app).
