Airgizmos Garmin aera 660 Panel Dock

Add to Wishlist
Part# 11-14552
MFR Model# PD28


Garmin has built another popular GPS and we have a Panel Dock for it. When you snap your aera 660 GPS into the Panel Dock, you will immediately appreciate the glove-like fit. The Panel Dock conforms to every curve of the new aera 660. The Panel Dock also matches the look and feel of the rest of your avionics stack, giving you a pleasant, professional looking panel.

The new Aera 660 Panel Dock maximizes your use of the aera 660 by placing it right in your panel. Your GPS is held securely in place, and as a result, the touchscreen controls feel comfortable and stable. Once in flight, you will appreciate the safety of having your portable GPS out of the way of your controls. The GPS won't be blocking your other instruments. Your GPS finally has a home in your cockpit. Touch screen controls are easier to navigate when the device is held securely in the panel, and you will enjoy the professional and clean installation.

Although the Panel Dock holds the aera 660 securely, you will appreciate the ability to quickly remove the GPS from the aircraft. You are free to use the GPS in another vehicle. You will also enjoy flight planning outside of the aircraft.

Cable management is always a concern with portable devices. Garmin has reduced the number of connectors on this device by using a docking connector. This docking connector nests into the back of the Panel Dock. We have integrated Garmin's docking connector into the design. Just click the Aera 660 into place and you are ready to go.

Garmin uses the power button to allow you to adjust lighting levels as well as other features of the GPS, so we have molded in an actuator for the power button. This allows easy access of the power button with the GPS held securely in the panel.

The aera 660 Panel Dock fits a standard radio stack.

If you are upgrading from an older Garmin GPS, you will be happy to know that we have designed the aera 660 Panel Dock to fit the same opening as the 196,296,396,496 Panel Dock, and uses the same hole layout for mounting.

As with all of the Panel Dockô products, the aera 660 Panel Dock is manufactured with high quality PC/ABS for long life.

I needed this to replace my aging Aera 560 in the panel of my Super Cub.. Received in a VERY timely manner. Fit exactly where my 560 Airgizmos mout had been and super easy to get all sorted out for a useful change in the Cub! Thanks Aircraft Spruce for the fans and accurate service.

Great product. I love how easy it is to pop out the GPS and take it with me. Its dimensioned to match a standard radio stack, so it blends right into my panel.

Replaced a Garmin 396 with the Aera 660. The Air Gizmo dock was a direct replacement for the 396 Air Gizmo. Very easy installation. Well worth the cost for the traffic and weather being on the panel.

I wish this item was configured to allow the 660 to be powered via a usb cord instead of just the cigarette lighter power cord.

Q: Will my Airgizmo mount for my Garmin 496 work for the Garmin Aera 660?

The panel cutout dimension is the same, but the profile of the device is different. So you can remove the old 496 AirGizmos panel dock, and install the Aera 660 panel dock in it's place but the Garmin 660 will not fit into the 496 panel dock.

Q: How it the Aera 660 powered when in the dock? Does it require the dock be hardwired and if so, what parts do I need?

The dock has space for the cradle so that it can be powered.

Q: I plan on using the Aviation Mount with bare wires made by Garmin to provide Aircraft power, ground, data in/out and audio to a Garmin Aera 660 GPS. The Garmin part number is 010-12373-010. Does this cable snap into the Aigizmo panel dock for the Aera 660?

The bare wire cable can be screwed into place on the Airgizmo panel dock.

Q: Does this product require a 337 or an STC for installation in a certificated airplane?

Yes. The Aera 660 panel dock does require a 337.

Q: Is there an STC to mount the panel dock in an airplane?

No, this product is not FAA STC approved.

Q: How does the 660 stay secured in the mount? Is there a mechanical latch? (I will be installing in a aerobatic plane and want to make sure it is secure)

The factory Garmin cradle (part # 10-06028 for example) mounts into the airgizmo holding the 660 and providing power.

Q: Will my airgizmo mount for my aera 560 work for the Garmin 660?

No, you will need to purchase the Airgizmo mount for the 660. However, it will fit in the same hole layout for mounting.

Q: Is there a way to hook up an antenna to the dock? I have one of these and the area66 sometimes looses satellites while in the dock. I have to take it out to reconnect to the satellites.

The dock itself does not have an antenna connector. It does have an opening in the back for a remote antenna to connect to your unit. The ga25 or the ga27c are aera 660 compatible antennas.

Q: Does this Airgizmos Garmin aera 660 Panel Dock require an STC?

No, this product is not FAA STC approved. We always recommend consulting an A&P or other qualified technician to determine if a product can be legally installed in your aircraft.
