MFR Model# PD16


If you like the looks of the new Garmin aera™ 500 series of GPS, we have a product that make it look even better. Introducing the aera 500 Panel Dock™.

When you snap your aera 500 GPS into the Panel Dock, you will immediately appreciate the glove-like fit. Our Panel Dock conforms to every curve of the new aera 500 series. The Panel Dock also matches the look and feel of the rest of your avionics stack, giving you a pleasant, professional looking panel.

Your GPS is held securely in place, and as a result, the touchscreen controls feel comfortable and stable. Once in flight, you will appreciate the safety of having your portable GPS out of the way of your controls. The GPS won't be blocking your other instruments. Your GPS finally has a home in your cockpit.

Although the Panel Dock holds the aera 500 securely, you will appreciate the ability to quickly remove the GPS from the aircraft. You are free to use the GPS in another vehicle. You will also enjoy flight planning outside of the aircraft.

Cable management is always a concern with portable devices. Garmin has reduced the number of connectors on this device byusing a docking connector. This docking connector nests into the back of our Panel Dock.

Garmin uses the power button to allow you to adjust lighting levels as well as other features of the GPS, so we have molded in an actuator for the power button. This allows easy access of the power button with the GPS held securely in the panel.

The aera 500 Panel Dock fits a standard radio stack. Dimensions are 6.25" wide by 4.25" high.
