Garmin aera 560

The Total Navigation Package

  • 4.3-inch touchscreen display
  • Fast 5 Hz GPS refresh rate
  • High-resolution map display
  • SiriusXM Satellite Weather support
  • Advanced street navigation

Top of the Line

The 560 is the most feature-rich navigator in the aera lineup. It combines a more advanced list of automotive and piloting capabilities with higher-resolution 9 arc-second terrain/obstacle graphics that yield more than 11 times the onscreen resolution than the standard 30 arc-second versions.

The internal GPS updates at a rate of 5 times per second (5 Hz), which allows your moving map and flight data to display smoothly and continuously. Optional SiriusXM Satellite Weather¹ 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 the moving-map display. Optional SiriusXM Satellite Radio gives you more than 170 channels of digital audio entertainment (XM subscription required). The GXM 42 smart antenna required for SiriusXM services is provided as an optional accessory. The simplicity of a single integrated cabling solution for power, music and datalink weather antenna options makes for easy, clutter-free aera connectivity in the cockpit.

“Mini-MFD” with Preloaded Mapping

aera 560 comes fully preloaded with detailed flight mapping, terrain/obstacles alerting, U.S., European and Candian SafeTaxi® charts, and AOPA Airport Directory data for a wealth of information resources at your fingertips. A full year of prepaid aviation database updates is included with purchase. 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 — while using your touchscreen map cursor to reference MEAs (Minimum Enroute Altitudes) and distances between intersections. Stay aware of special airspace activity with more than 683 parachute drop zone details in the Americas navigation database. Plus, to help with traffic surveillance, an optional power/data cable (sold separately) makes it easy to interface your aera with the GTX 330 Mode S transponder in your aircraft, thus enabling you to access and display TIS traffic alerts in busy terminal airspace. Use the aera to load communication frequencies into your SL 40 Comm or SL 30 Nav/Comm transceiver.

Loaded for the Road

Seamlessly transition to road navigation with its “dual boot” design, supported by preloaded City Navigator® NT street maps. The 560 offers voice-guided turn-by-turn directions with text-to-speech audio technology that speaks street names, much like our popular nüvi® line of touchscreen automotive navigators. Built-in Bluetooth® supports wireless hands-free calling. Other premium features include Lane Assist with junction view, speed limit notification and traffic alerts². Use the SiriusXM satellite capability to watch the weather or listen to SiriusXM Satellite Radio while driving. To quickly transition from aircraft to automotive mode, a unique smart mount for the aera offers instant clip-and-go car navigation.
