Can this device be used with area 500 and iPad simultaneously?
Yes you can hard wire one device (aera 500, 510, 550, 560, GPSMAP 696, 695, aera 796 or 795) and also output to an iPad or Android device at the same time.
Can this device output to multiple iPads at once or is it one iPad per GDL-39 receiver? Regarding part # 11-10728
The signal sent out by the GDL-39 receiver can be received by up to two iPads simulataneously.
Can P/N 11-10729 GDL 39 for the AERA 796 Bluetooth to the GDL 39 or is this the wired version to the GDL 39?
Part number 11-10729 is the wired version which connects the 796 directly to the GDL 39 with a single cig charging plug for both units. For the Bluethooth version you will want to order 11-10728.
Does the Garmin GDL 39 come with hardware/cable to connect to Aera 560?
If you order the GDL 39 to Aera 560 which is our part number 11-10727 it will come with a power and data cable to connect and power both units.
Can the GDL 39 be hard wired to a Garmin 496 and connected via Bluetooth to an iPad at the same time and will it operate both ForeFlight and FLYQ on the iPad?
The Garmin GDL 39 will not work with ForeFlight and is only designed for use with the Garmin Pilot App. You can connect to the 496 (traffic only no ADS-B weather on the 496) via the 496/GDL 39 cable and you can still connect one additional iPad/Android device via Bluetooth (again only with the Garmin app).
I have an Aera 500 (which I love) that mounts in a cradle that is plugged into a 12V cigarette lighter socket. I want to get traffic shown on my Aera. How does the GLD-39 connect to Aera 500 series?
The Aera 500 series GDL 39 cable is a single plug with three ends. One with a GDL 39 plug, one we an Aera 500 series bracket (like the one on the yoke mount) and lastly a cigarette plug to charge both.
Does the Bluetooth version of the GDL 39 for the iPad/Android/796/795 come with a cigarette lighter plug for power in the box?
Yes, the Bluetooth version comes with GDL 39, cigarette lighter plug and mount. This version can connect to two Bluetooth devices.
I am interested in a Garmin GDL 39. I already have an AERA 560 bare wire connector, which I have going to power and connected to an ELT. I have both the AERA 560 and an IPAD that I could use with the GDL 39. If I'm already using the Garmin bare wire connector, what remaining options do I have?
The GDL 39 will Bluetooth to the iPad. You can however do this as the ELT would get the aera 560 data through the 39 bare wire cable 11-10730 using the serial pass through option that is discussed in the GDL 39 users manual.
The GDL 39 receives ADS-B traffic and weather. However, The Aera 500 was never intended to display weather (only the 510 and 560 for XM). Does this mean that if I connect the GDL 39 to my Aera 500 I only get traffic or will I also see weather?
The Aera 500 and 550 cannot do XM weather but can do ADS-B weather and traffic via the GDL 39.
I have a Garmin 696. Does the GDL 39 have a separate part number for mating to 696? I note a power cable to interconnect & power both units is required - it this included with the GDL 39?
The part number for the GDL 39 (with plug for GDL 39 & 696 to a cigarette plug) is 11-10725. If you want to hard wire both units you will need to order 11-10730 (GDL 39 with bare wire cable) and part number 11-07056 (power data cable for the 696). This will give data for the 696 and also Blutooth data to one other device.
I have an Aera 560, if I add a GDL 39 receiver it must be hard wired? Can I also connect the Garmin Pilot Android app via Bluetooth to receive data at the same time?
Yes you will have to hard wire the Aera 560 as it does not have a Bluetooth feature (use 11-10727). As the GDL 39 has two inputs you can Bluetooth to another Bluetooth device using the Garmin pilot app.
What is battery life for the GDL 39?
Per the Garmin manual, the average battery life is 4 hours.
