Garmin® Brings Portable Attitude and ADS-B Datalink Together with New GDL® 39 3D

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced the GDL 39 3D, a portable ADS-B and GPS receiver which adds simultaneous display of aircraft attitude information (pitch and roll), alongside rich, interactive mapping, traffic, and weather within the Garmin Pilot™ application. The GDL 39 3D also features advanced traffic awareness, including patent-pending TargetTrend™ relative motion technology and subscription-free weather.

“The GDL 39 3D is an example of how we’re dedicated to expanding the capabilities of our existing ADS-B solutions,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “As the industry-leader in ADS-B solutions, we’re devoted to educating the pilot community. Our full line-up of portable and certified ADS-B products, along with our comprehensive ADS-B Academy website, support Garmin’s commitment to making the ADS-B transition easy and affordable for all aircraft owners.”

The GDL 39 3D portable ADS-B receiver is a simple and economical solution for pilots who want to receive the benefits of ADS-B In and back-up attitude information. The GDL 39 3D combines a dual link ADS-B receiver which conveniently supplies ADS-B traffic, weather, and WAAS GPS data to Bluetooth® compatible iOS and Android devices. Garmin Pilot conveniently enables the display of back-up attitude information and moving map page with weather and traffic overlay while in split screen mode, so it’s easy to view flight information alongside attitude information simultaneously.

In addition to back-up attitude information, pilots also receive subscription-free weather. Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather is broadcast using the FAA’s 978 MHz UAT uplink and is similar to the existing weather products available today by commercial satellite weather providers. Weather products include NEXRAD imagery, METARs, TAFs, winds and temperatures aloft, PIREPs, NOTAMs, and more.

Pilots can receive ADS-B traffic information and alerts to help identify potential traffic conflicts. The dual link GDL 39 3D offers a comprehensive view of traffic information, which receives traffic on both ADS-B frequencies, 1090 ES and 978 UAT. ADS-B In technology enables the GDL 39 3D to receive Traffic Information Service-Broadcast (TIS-B) and helps pilots gain a better understanding of the traffic picture around them. The GDL 39 3D also offers advanced ADS-B features, including TargetTrend relative motion tracking and SURF technology. TargetTrend provides a faster, more intuitive way of judging target trajectories and closure relates in relation to your aircraft’s position. In dense traffic environments and in many other scenarios, TargetTrend allows the pilot to easily discern the aircraft with the greatest threat, which saves time and reduces workload. SURF technology also supports the display of ADS-B-equipped surface targets on the map page so pilots are more aware of other aircraft and surface vehicles on the ramp.

The smart GDL 39 3D collects and stores all available traffic and weather data in the vicinity so it is available as soon as the display is turned on. It’s capable of simultaneously providing wireless data to two devices while hardwired to a third. The GDL 39 3D is Bluetooth capable which enables pilots to continually receive important weather and traffic information whether in the air or on the ground.

Back-up attitude information, traffic, and weather are currently available within Garmin Pilot compatible mobile devices utilizing a built-in Bluetooth connection. Garmin products including the aera® 795/796, aera 500 series, and GPSMAP® 695/696 are traffic and weather compatible, while the GPSMAP 396/495/496 have the capability to display traffic targets (up to seven).

The GDL 39 3D is available today, starting at $849.00 and the GDL 39 3D bundled with an optional battery is $899.00. The price of the existing GDL 39 is now $599.00 and $649.00 with an optional battery. Also included with the purchase of the GDL 39 3D is a free trial of Garmin Pilot.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
