You will need a Nav database, safe-taxi, obstacles, etc update. ($49 each)
Unit SYSTEM Software is updated to the latest 4.80 as well as the XM antenna.
Everything works with no issues. (Just a very small hairline scratch at the top of the screen but is barely visible when the screen display is on!)
XM Satellite radio for audio listening entertainment as well as Aviation Weather with a paid subscription. See photos for my Audio channels example.
RAM Yoke mount, RAM window mount, Bean Bag mount for auto Dash, etc.
Includes 2 batteries in very good condition with velcro pads for mounting the antennas. Refer to photos for all items included. (What you see is what you get).
Owners manuals in like new condition as well as the original box.
Unit has hard line wiring to attach to your panel mounted GPS NAV/COM.
I had mine connected to a GNS530WAAS which displayed the flight plan and wx on the map screen. I also connected the audio cable so that the unit gave altitude call outs as well as being able to listen to audio channels through my audio panel.
View Your Position on Taxiways
Garmin SafeTaxi® data provides detailed taxiway diagrams and position information for over 850 U.S. airports. Preloaded on the unit, this information helps you navigate unfamiliar airports with confidence and shows your aircraft’s exact position on the field.
Access AOPA Airport Directory
Easily look up taxi services, plan an overnight, choose fuel stops and more with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) Airport Directory included on GPSMAP 496. It offers detailed information for over 5,300 U.S. airports along with the names and phone numbers of thousands of FBOs, plus ground transportation, lodging, restaurants, local attractions and more.Enhance Situational Awareness:
GPSMAP 496 features a built-in Jeppesen database, and an Americas, Atlantic or Pacific terrain database. It also includes an obstacles database for the U.S. or Europe. Using this information, the 496 displays your flight route over contour terrain mapping. The higher-resolution terrain database includes over ten times as much data as the 396’s for even more visual reference. With information from the terrain and obstacles databases, the 496 monitors your current position in relation to surrounding terrain to provide alerts. Even customize your own minimum clearance levels to receive terrain cautions. The addition of private airports and heliports to the database provides even more navigation and emergency "nearest" options.
Add Weather, Radio and Traffic:
Make informed decisions based on weather and traffic with optional sensors and services. With the addition of the GXM 30A smart antenna, you’ll have access to constantly-updated, high-resolution weather data for the U.S, right in the cockpit. Weather information includes Next Generation Radar (NEXRAD), Aviation Routine Weather Reports (METARs), Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts (TAFs), Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs), Lightning and Winds Aloft and can be laid directly over the 496’s Jeppesen and topographic map databases. With an additional monthly service fee, GXM 30A delivers XM Satellite Radio to your aircraft. Add a Garmin Mode S transponder, and the 496 will also display TIS traffic alerts that identify surrounding air traffic.
XM ANTENNA IS INCLUDED!
