The most feature-rich navigator in Garmin’s aera lineup, the 560 model combines a more advanced list of automotive and piloting. As in all the aera models, GPS updating is provided at a super- fast 5 Hz rate. And you also get full support for the latest in XM WX™ satellite weather capabilities¹.

With coverage for the U.S. and Canada, the XM service lets you reference detailed NEXRAD imaging and METARs data, as well as current reports on precipitation, lightning, winds aloft, airport terminal forecasts, and more. Weather graphics can be overlaid on your aera’s moving-map display.

And for added entertainment value, your XM receiver can also be used to access over 170 channels of digital audio entertainment (XM subscription required). The GXM 40 smart antenna is included with your aera 560. And a single integrated cabling solution for power, music and datalink weather options makes for easy, clutter-free aera connectivity in your cockpit.

In addition to the XM satellite access, your aera 560 comes fully preloaded with detailed flight mapping, terrain/obstacles alerting, U.S. SafeTaxi® charts, and AOPA Airport Directory data. A full year of prepaid aviation database updates is included with your aera 560 purchase. There’s also an IFR map mode that lets you display and navigate on high or low enroute airways – while using your touchscreen map cursor to reference MEAs (Minimum Enroute Altitudes) and distances between intersections.

It’s Loaded for the Road as Well

Operating much like Garmin’s popular nüvi® line of touchscreen auto navigators, the aera 560 offers voice-guided turn-by-turn directions with text-to-speech audio technology that calls out streets by name. In addition, there’s built-in Bluetooth® support for wireless hands-free calling with your compatible mobile phone. And to speed your transition from aircraft to automotive mode, there’s also a unique ”smart mount” for the aera that helps get you on your way with instant clip-and-go navigation.

Garmin aera series: It’s the ultimate fly/drive option.
