Navigate with Garmin caliber GPS data on the mobile device of your choice. The GLO 2 receiver brings you the best of both worlds by combining GPS and GLONASS receivers with Bluetooth® wireless technology so you can enjoy precise position information on your iPad®, iPhone® or Android™ device.

The Accuracy of GPS and GLONASS

GLO 2 can receive position information from both the GPS and GLONASS satellite constellations, allowing it to connect to up to 24 more satellites than devices that rely on GPS alone. This allows GLO 2 to lock on to satellites approximately 20% faster and remain connected even at high speed. What’s more, GLO 2 updates its position information at 10 times per second; that’s up to 10 times more often than the GPS receivers in many mobile devices.

Set It up and Go

Using Bluetooth technology, the GLO 2 receiver wirelessly pairs to your mobile device. Just set GLO 2 within range of your mobile device, and in moments, you’ll be receiving the GLO 2 receiver’s position data. It has up to 13 hours of battery life to keep your position on long trips, and charging GLO 2 between uses is easy with the included USB cable or optional 12/24 V vehicle power cable. The optional friction mount keeps the receiver safe on your dashboard and in full view of satellites.

    Great product ..I used it for my trip from Vancouver to Tokyo on a 787. After using it for 10.5 hrs I still had 34% Battery left. The Garmin glo 2 also was picking up Russian satellites

    Q: How can I connect the Garmin Glo with a Garmin 696 or newer?

    The 696 has it's own internal gps receiver. The Glo is designed to provide GPS data to an ipad, iphone, or android device.

    Q: What is the difference between the GLO 2 and the GLO for aviation?

    The upgrades are in battery life which is now up to 13 hours, the speed in which it locks onto satellites which is 20% faster, and an included 6-month subscription to Garmin Pilot app.

    Q: How is the GLO 2 different than the previous product? My older Garmin GLO has difficulty when placed in a sunlit cockpit. An hour or so would lead to a shutoff and required a reboot in cooler conditions. Hence my GLO is in pile of not so great airplane acquisitions.

    The battery life has been extended by an hour and the subscription to Garmin Pilot is included.

    Q: I have aN iPhone 4, will this Garmin Glo 2 work with it?

    Yes, this will provide GPS signal to an iOS device using a Bluetooth connection.

    Q: Will this Garmin Glo 2 device be compatible with EFBs such as FltPlan Go?

    Yes, this will provide GPS signal to any app requiring one.
