Awareness in Your Hand
The aera 660
aviation portable puts the latest Garmin technology in the palm of your hand,
and it carries on our tradition of creating innovative navigators that go way
back to the beginning of handheld aviation GPS. While aera 660 is light,
compact and fits in any flight bag, it’s also packed with capabilities. As a
dedicated navigator, it quickly and reliably acquires GPS and GLONASS satellite
constellations and combines advanced navigation tools with rich, interactive,
dynamically drawn aviation maps. And it displays it all on a bright,
sunlight-readable 5-inch diagonal capacitive touchscreen display.
The icons on
the aera 660 are instantly familiar to anyone who’s used a Garmin
GTN touchscreen GPS/NAV/COMM, G5000® integrated flight deck or even the
Garmin Pilot app, and the intuitive interface allows you to quickly pan across
the map screen, pinch to zoom and more. Meanwhile, the power button on the top
accesses quick settings, including portrait or landscape orientation, volume
The aera 660
aviation portable comes preloaded with detailed flight mapping, terrain and
obstacles alerting, U.S., European and Canadian SafeTaxi® charts and AOPA
Airport Directory or optional AC-U-KWIK global airport directory to put a
wealth of resources right at your fingertips — including local fuel prices
(U.S. only). The graphical Terrain page offers both overhead and vertical
profile views of the topography beneath you. Switch to IFR map mode to display
and navigate on high or low enroute airways, and use your touchscreen map
cursor to reference MEAs (Minimum Enroute Altitudes) and distances between
intersections. The aera 660 even provides vertical navigation (VNAV) guidance
to simplify en-route transitions.
aware of special airspace activity with more than 650 parachute drop zone
details (U.S. only) and get 1-touch airspace information. Garmin Smart
Airspace™ guidance conveniently highlights the airspace nearest your current
altitude and de-emphasizes non-pertinent airspace so you can quickly identify
your location relative to the airspace around you. And, of course, the aera 660
includes our signature direct-to and nearest-airport navigation.
Connect With Your
optional power/data cable (sold separately), the aera 660 connects with your
Garmin avionics to accept flight plans from your GTN 750/650 and GNS 530W/430W
navigators, as well as upload frequencies to the standby position of your GTR
200 Comm radio, GTR 225 Comm radio or GNC 255 NAV/COMM radio. It also provides
your Garmin NAV/COMM radios with the GPS position source required to look up
Weather and Traffic
Bluetooth® connectivity via Garmin Connext technology, the aera 660 easily
interfaces with compatible devices to cut the clutter in your cockpit and
improve your flying experience. With a Garmin GDL 52 portable
ADS-B/SiriusXM® receiver or GTX 345 all-in-one ADS-B transponder, you can
access and display ADS-B subscription-free weather¹ and advanced traffic
alerts, including TargetTrendTM relative motion tracking and TerminalTrafficTM, so you’re
aware of potential conflicts in busy terminal airspace. It even allows wireless
control of Garmin VIRB action cameras to start and stop recording and capture
Get 3D Perspective
3D Vision technology gives you a virtual 3-D behind-the-aircraft perspective
view of surrounding terrain derived from GPS/GLONASS and the onboard terrain
database. Slide your finger across the touchscreen to rotate the view and show
land and water features, obstacles, runways and airport signposts in relative
proximity to the aircraft. And when you connect aera 660 to an attitude source
through a Flight Stream 210 or Flight Stream 510, a GDL 52 series
portable data link or a GTX 345 ADS-B transponder, Garmin SVX synthetic vision
and attitude command bars are automatically added to your display.
its forward-looking terrain avoidance capability, the aera 660 predicts in
advance where towers or obstacles may exist and shades the landscape with amber
or red overlays to indicate those areas. Also, get help flying clear of
conflicts with Garmin WireAware™ wire-strike avoidance technology, which
graphically overlays Hazardous Obstacle Transmission (HOT) lines that span
rivers and canyons right on the moving map page, for the U.S. as well as in
some locations in both Canada and Mexico. Touch the wire to display both MSL
and AGL heights, and see color-coded obstacle alerting depending on your
distance to the hazard. An optional full database that includes all powerlines
is also available.
