Advanced Connectivity and Revolutionary Avionics Integration

  • Enables Database Concierge wireless avionics database updates
  • Permits 2-way flight plan transfers between compatible apps and avionics¹
  • Initiate phone calls and send/receive text messages from contacts on your Apple® device, using the Garmin Pilot™ app through your compatible avionics, optional Connext® datalink and service plan
  • Streams traffic, weather, GPS information and back-up attitude information from your avionics to select portables and mobile devices
  • Lets mobile devices wirelessly control SiriusXM™ satellite music from any position in the cabin
Experience the revolutionary cockpit connectivity of patented technology with Flight Stream 510. A game-changing addition to the Connext platform, Flight Stream 510 pairs with your GTN™ 650 and GTN 750 series navigators to add greater flexibility and convenience both inside and outside of the cockpit — to save you time and workload. It requires no wiring changes or complex installation considerations, yet it allows you to more easily manage your database subscriptions via the Garmin Pilot app — while also enabling wireless flight plan transfer with your GTN, sharing of traffic, weather, GPS and more. And if you have G500 or G600 glass flight displays paired with a GTN, Flight Stream 510 even wirelessly displays back-up attitude information on a mobile device.

Improving the Connected Cockpit

Cost-effective and non-intrusive, Flight Stream 510 is a patented memory card that contains Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® connectivity capability. When installed in the slot of a GTN 650/750 series navigator, Flight Stream can be connected with up to 2 compatible Apple or Android™ mobile devices operating Garmin Pilot as well as Garmin aera® 660, aera 795 and aera 796 portables.

The wireless connection enables Database Concierge wireless database transfer. At home, you can select individual databases (including Jeppesen® NavData or Garmin Navigation Database, Obstacle, Terrain, SafeTaxi®, FliteCharts®, Basemap and the AOPA Airport Directory) on the Garmin Pilot app, download them and then store them to your mobile device for later use. Once Flight Stream 510 establishes a wireless connection in the airplane, it transfers your up-to-date databases directly to the GTN in minutes, where they’ll wait in standby until their effective date. For added flexibility, a USB card reader is provided to customers who would like to download databases directly to the Flight Stream 510 card using a computer.

Staying in Sync

If you have multiple GTNs or G500/G600 glass flight displays, you’ll enjoy additional benefits from database synchronization. The GTN acts like a computer server to automatically transfer and synchronize your databases to the flight display and navigator, behind the scenes. In the meantime, you can view and use a departure, approach and arrival chart immediately – even if the databases are still synchronizing.

Communication Control

Flight Stream 510 makes it easier to stay connected with your loved ones on the ground, too. When you run Garmin Pilot on a compatible Apple mobile device, you can pair it to your GTN with an optional GSR 56 datalink and access text and voice services both in-flight and on the ground over the Connext network (subscription required). That means you can easily send and receive messages with your device — and even use its existing contact database — as well as complete phone calls through your headset.

Streaming Situational Awareness

Complete your flight plan in the comfort of home or the FBO lounge on the Garmin Pilot, ForeFlight Mobile or FltPlan Go apps. Then, with only a few taps, wirelessly transfer it in seconds to the GTN over the Flight Stream 510 Bluetooth connection — and give yourself more time for other preflight activities prior to departure. Garmin Pilot will even prompt you if there are any changes to your flight plan by ATC so you can automatically send that amendment to your navigator. And if you need to alter your flight plan en route, you can make the change on 1 device and quickly sync it on the other.

Plus, you can share GPS position information from your GTN navigator to display precise position information on mobile devices. And with a G500/G600 flight display, you can also
display back-up attitude information, including dynamic pitch and bank information, within Garmin Pilot and ForeFlight Mobile. Flight Stream 510 also displays ADS-B traffic and weather information — and attitude information when it’s available from a G500/G600 — on Garmin aera 795/796 and aera 660 portables.

SiriusXM Remote Control

With a GDL 69/69A SXM datalink receiver (subscription required), Flight Stream 510 supports the display of SiriusXM Aviation weather in Garmin Pilot in the U.S. and Canada. Plus, you and your passengers also have remote control of SiriusXM satellite music selections, volume controls and favorite audio channels from anywhere in the cabin.

With Flight Stream 510, you get the awareness, simplicity and convenience offered by a wireless cockpit — while leaving the database and information management to us — so you can devote more time to the thing you love most: flying your Garmin-equipped aircraft.

The FlightStream shipped with version 2.33 of the firmware, from 2017, three years behind the current version. You cant update the software without a dealer. Garmin needs to fix this.

I had a Flightstream 510 which failed. It was not warranted nor repairable by Garmin. It worked beautifully at first, but failed with no known cause. Hearsay suggests failure is common, which of course I cannot verify.

Q: If I buy a flight stream 510 and decide to upgrade my GTN625 to a 650, can I move it to the new radio?

Yes, you can.

Q: Can I not buy this Garmin Flight Stream 510 for my certified aircraft and just install in my GTN 750?

We can only sell this for experimental applications. For certified aircraft, this must be purchased by the certified Garmin avionics install shop doing the work.

Q: Not mentioned in the description, but is the Garmin Flightstream 510 compatible with Foreflight?

Per the manufacturer, Foreflight is compatible for certain features such as ADS-B weather, traffic, AHRS, GPS and FlightPlan.

Q: Is the Garmin Flightstream 510 compatible with the G1000?

No, this is not compatible with the G1000. It is compatible with the GTN 650/750 as well as the Aera 660, 795 and Aera 796.

Q: Can I use one Flight Stream 510 in two different airplanes? Just take it out of one and move it to the other for the day?

Per Garmin, no, you cannot use a single FS510 in multiple systems. It is locked to the system ID to which it is configured at setup.

Q: Is there a warrantee on the Garmin Flightstream 510, and is an extended warranted available?

This datacard carries a 2 year or 800 flight hour warranty from the date of purchase.

Q: I have the Garmin GTN 650 and 750 installed in my aircraft. Will one Flight Stream 510 work for both and the data transfer to the other GTN or would I need to purchase two of the Flight Streams?

This can be used on both units.
