Garmin Aera 660 Aviation Cradle, GDL.
Receive ADS-B benefits with this connected mount. Charge or power your aera 660 and a GDL 39 from your aircraft's cigarette lighter receptacle. The power cable features a Y-connection so you can place the GDL 39 on your dash and the portable on your yoke or lap.
Made a nice clean install for the Aera 660 and gdl 50 tucked the cables under the glare shield and routed the wires under the side panel looks good.
This cradle works exactly as expected, providing ADS-B in for the Aera 660. I was not happy with the restricted position provided by the Garmin standard yoke mount, so I moved the cradle over to a RAM mount and am much happier. Also,there was a small amount of vibration with the Garmin standard yoke mount that I didn’t like and that problem is gone with the RAM yoke mount.
Works perfectly. In addition to powering both devices, the cable is also wired to transfer data (WX, traffic, attitude)) back and forth.
