With 4.3-inch QVGA widescreen displays and a touchscreen interface, the Garmin GPS Series is the perfect solution for flying / drive navigation. The four aera models come with preloaded automotive maps, a built-in aircraft / obstacle database, Garmin's patented panel page and more. Therefore, you can smoothly move from tracks to roads with the aera model that best suits your needs and budget.

Consider aera 510

From the Garmin model base aera 500, version 510 adds support for NEXRAD images and all other great capabilities of XM WX T¹ satellites. In addition, you can use XM Radio's ability to enjoy over 170 digital music channels, news and other programming through your headset or audio system from the cockpit. (The GXM 40 intelligent antenna is included with your aera.) In addition to the XM satellite access, the aera 510 comes fully preloaded with detailed aerial mapping of terrain contours and structural features. Therefore, you will have a wealth of information resources at your fingertips, to help you make better flight decisions. In addition, the simplicity of a single integrated cabling solution for power, music and datalink antenna options makes connectivity easy and clutter-free in the cabin.

The aera 510 terrain graphic page offers panoramic and vertical views of the landscape beneath its wings. And an IFR map mode allows you to display and navigate the high or low enroute airways - while using your touchscreen map cursor to reference MEAs (minimum altitudes en route) and distances between intersections. For traffic awareness, an optional power / data cable (sold separately) facilitates your Aera's interface with the Garmin GTX 330 Mode S transponder on your aircraft, allowing you to access and display TIS traffic alerts in the occupied airspace of the terminal. In addition, you can also use the aera to upload communications frequencies into your Garmin SL 40 Comm or SL 30 Nav / Comm transceiver

Out of the skies, on the roads

When you arrive to its destination airstrip, Aera lets you hit the ground running - with the full automotive GPS capability and city mapping of City Navigator® NT preloaded. Operating like Garmin's popular nüvi® line of automatic navigators, its aera 510 offers step-by-step voice guidance with text-to-speech audio technology that calls the streets by name. In addition, it incorporates Bluetooth® support for hands-free wireless calls with your compatible mobile phone. In addition, the aera's "points of interest" database offers useful guidance to millions of motels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs and other local attractions. You can use the ability of the XM satellites to watch the weather or listen to XM Radio while driving. And to accelerate its transition from aircraft to automotive mode, a single "smart mount" for the aera offers instant navigation of clip-and-go cars.
