The GLO brings Garmin's industry-leading GPS technology to mobile devices, wirelessly connecting to iPads and Android devices via Bluetooth. It offers up to 12 hours of battery life and a position update rate of up to 10 times per second (update rate may be limited by the host device). This is approximately 10 times faster than the internal GPS receivers of most mobile devices. GLO has been approved by Apple for use with its products including the iPad. The benefit of Garmin GLO is that when using both GPS and GLONASS satellites, the time it takes for the receiver to "lock on" is approximately 20 percent faster than using GPS alone. Because the unit is both GPS and GLONASS, the GLO has access to 24 more satellites.
The "Aviation Package" includes an anti-skid cockpit mount, USB cable and a power cable.
Using Bluetooth technology, GLO for Aviation wirelessly pairs to up to 4 devices simultaneously. Just use the included mount to set GLO on your glare screen and within moments, you will receive the GLOs position data. Charging the GLO between uses is a cinch with the included USB cable or 12/24-V cigarette lighter adapter.
