Garmin Aera 660 Aviation Cradle, Bare Wires.
Expand the communication possibilities of your aera. Connect the bare wires to a panel mount to transfer data, such as a flight plans, to your aera; conversely, you can connect to a panel-mounted radio to transfer data. You can even connect to a transponder to display air traffic data on your aera. Simply attach the aviation mount to the yoke mount using the included mounting hardware.
I now have the Aera 660 wired into aircraft power. Unit automatically starts up when power is applied. Will ask if you want to shut it off when power is lost. Good for fuel stops when it is desired to keep the power on when the engine isnt running. Also wired the data into the JPI FS-450 Fuel Flow Computer. Works well with that unit. Only caveat is that the ground wire for both units must be on the same grounding point. Time to install was about an hour or so. Fairly straight forward.
Works wonderfully, but Garmin should make the embedded wires a larger gauge.
Send unit back did not fit into 660.
This product is manufactured by Garmin. It is a Garmin product.
That is correct. This cable is designed to provide both power and data to the 660 so that you can plug it into ships power.
Yes, the Airgizmos panel dock for the 660 allows room for the bare wires cradle to be used simultaneously so the Aera 660 can be hard wired.
The FS-450 and Aera 660 can connect together, with information only going from the Aera 660 to the FS-450. NMEA183 is the setup protocol, and the info displayed on the FS-450 will be to the waypoint.
Yes, for an Aera 660 this will provide you with RS-232 output.
Yes. The Pro Pilot will accept NMEA 0183, RS-232, message from an Aera 660 via the bare wire connection.
It does not have the ball already on it, however you can purchase the RAM Aera adapter, part # 11-09853, to attach it to youu mount system.
This bare wire cable has a power and ground wire plus two RS-232 wires to interconnect to two devices (such as a GDL 39/50 and G5) as well as an audio wire lead.
The Aera 660 is not a direct replacement for the Aera 560 panel install. The dimensions and power data connectors are different for both.
As long as the baud rate matches between the units, this will be possible.
