Overview

The Garmin GDL 69 and GDL 69A SXM datalink receivers offer access to weather service packages with lower activation fees, which are made available by SiriusXM and their latest G4 satellite network. The GDL 69A SXM receiver provides both pilots and passengers with SiriusXM Satellite Radio audio in addition to new weather service packages.

The GDL 69 and GDL 69A SXM receiver is the latest addition to a large lineup of datalink weather receivers that offer pilots access to SiriusXM aviation weather information both on the ground and in the air. When paired with a compatible display and/or the Flight Stream 110/Flight Stream 210 and a compatible mobile device using the Garmin Pilot application, SiriusXM aviation weather information delivers coveragethroughout the continental United States and parts of Canada and Puerto Rico while providing pilots access to additional weather products.

The base weather service now includes lightning, cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground activity, graphical winds aloft, temperatures aloft, AIRMETS, and SIGMETS. Similar to earlier generation receivers, the GDL 69 and GDL 69A SXM Receivers offer important weather products such as radar, aviation routine weather reports (METARs), terminal aerodrome forecasts (TAFs), temporary flight restrictions (TFRs), lightning, turbulence forecasts, and more. Data subscriptions and coverage area information are available from SiriusXM. In addition to providing detailed weather information, the audio-enabled GDL 69A SXM receiver provides SiriusXM Satellite Radio entertainment in the cockpit.

When paired with a GDL 69A SXM receiver and a Flight Stream 110 or Flight Stream 210, a free version of Garmin Pilot allows pilots and passengers to view and select radio stations, control volume and select favorite stations.

The new GDL 69 and GDL 69A SXM receiver uses the same antenna, provides pin-for-pin compatibility and slides into an existing GDL 69 rack*. With very similar weight and electrical load, the GDL 69 and GDL 69A SXM receivers are designed as a direct replacement for existing installations. They provide weather and music features included with your subscription without the need for a software update, although software updates for individual display devices are scheduled to become available in the future.

Q&A

Q: Can this unit be coupled with my two axis S-TEC System 30 auto pilot?

No, the GDL 69 is a weather receiver and has no interfacing capabilities with auto pilot systems.

Q: Can the GDL 69A receive ADS-B weather rather than subscribing to XM or Sirius?

No, it is only XM capable.
