Reviews around work (5.00 of 5)

  • I bought this hoping it would work as well and was pleasantly surprised how fast and easy this works, better than the Dual
  • This Garmin GLO for aviation works very well in the higher altitudes through heated windows
  • I found that the CoPilot GPS app for Apple iOS (free with basic functionality, but you can pay for additional features) works pretty well, and you can download maps of a region of your choice (i.e. US and Canada, a 1.5GB download), so you need not have an internet connection to use the GPS

Reviews around signal (5.00 of 5)

  • The DUAL on the other hand does have a hard time to get a signal through the Sabreliner windshield but works great on the Gulfstream
  • With very good signal reception and battery life, I and very pleased with the performance.
  • Even without an absolutely clear view of the sky, the Glo was able to quickly acquire and maintain usable signals.

Reviews around life (5.00 of 5)

  • Compact, good battery life, turns on quickly, rings in GPS satellites quickly, GLONASS satellites a plus, pairs quickly with ipad, fast updates, uses a standard USB cable
  • Through it in a bag/backpack and don't worry about it turning on and draining the battery (which has great life by the way).
  • Very good battery life

Reviews around thing (5.00 of 5)

  • This thing works great!!!

Reviews around power switch (5.00 of 5)

  • I never write reviews but I am this time because I think the reviews that claim the power switch is too sensitive are not fair
  • But like every other GPS of this type the power switch remains overly exposed.

Reviews around review (5.00 of 5)

  • I never write reviews but I am this time because I think the reviews that claim the power switch is too sensitive are not fair
  • This unit has a lot of good recent reviews, but old ones with now erroneous info have been voted most helpful.

Reviews around unit (3.37 of 5)

  • this unit works seamlessly...easy to use and design to last long on each charge
  • The unit worked well with both the Garmin Pilot and Jeppesen applications
  • Overall, this is a good unit; I would have given it 5 stars if it came with included navigation / utility software
  • The GLO is a small, long-lasting, accurate unit with fast updates and great coverage, but it lacks one simple item I think is very important: A battery level indicator in either hardware or software.

Reviews around design (1.00 of 5)

  • Physical design is poor with unprotected switches that turn on inadvertently while in storage
  • It WILL turn on and kill the battery if you put it in a flight bag, or pocket, or pretty much anywhere else unless you have a very specifically designed hard case that prevents any movement or pressure against that outside edge.

More about Garmin GLO for Aviation

  • Fly with the portable device of your choice and Garmin-caliber GPS data at the same time
  • GLO for Aviation brings you the best of both worlds by combining GPS/GLONASS receivers with Bluetooth® technology so you can get precise position information on your iPad, iPhone or Android device. GLO for Aviation can receive position information from both the GPS and GLONASS satellite constellations, allowing it to connect to up to 24 more satellites than devices that rely on GPS alone
  • This allows GLO to lock on to satellites approximately 20% faster and keep up with even the most demanding jet speeds
  • What’s more, GLO updates its position information 10x per second – up to 10x more often than the GPS receivers in many mobile devices
  • When you access geo-referenced charts, Garmin SafeTaxi or the moving map display in Garmin Pilot (6 months of which come free with your GLO purchase), you’ll know that what you see is the most precise picture possible. Using Bluetooth® technology, GLO for Aviation wirelessly pairs to your mobile device
  • Just use the included mount to set GLO on your glare screen and within moments, you’ll be receiving GLO’s position data
  • The device features up to 12 hours of battery life to keep your position on even the longest of flights, and charging GLO between uses is a cinch with the included USB cable or 12/24 Volt cigarette lighter adapter.
