Reviews

I can confirm this does not kill GPS signal as one reviewer posted. Not sure if they had a buggy firmware installed or just improper use. Use the Garmin Pilot app (no subscription necessary) to ensure your firmware is up to date, and connect the antenna before powering the GDL-51/52 on. My GDL-52 lives on its mounting plate near the bottom of my panel and has this antenna for XM along with a connection through the Stratus ESG transponder for better ADS-B In receive however it remains totally portable for use in other aircraft.

Working good. It was a necessary addition to the GDL-52 so the antenna could be remotely moved away from the heated windshield of a King Air.

Works great and didnt cost an arm and a leg. I have the GDL 51 remote mounted and the GA 24 in the glareshield. It gets GPS from the Aera 660.

My GDL-52 seemed unable to attain a Sirius XM link no matter where we placed it in the cockpit. This external antenna seems to be remedying the problem. It isn’t perfect, but at least now we have a established signal we can work with.

No place said that you lost GPS if you connect the GA24 antenna. It should be said !!! Useless acessory. History: I bought that antenna so I can leave my GDL52 out of sun on the glareshield. I know it only get XM signal BUT I though that the GPS will continued been provided by the internal GPS antenna, and since the GPS always works from my side window I though that use the external antenna for a better XM signal. Well, big mistake, as soon as you connect the antenna the unit completely lost all GPS signal, the green light for GPS immediately goes off. And the XM signal does improve too much. Anyway, WHY I will need a GPS unit that does not work as a GPS just because you connect an OFFICIAL accessory in it !? I need my unit working properly and just a boost for the XM signal. No place said that you lost GPS if you connect the GA24 antenna. It should be said !!! So its useless.

Q: Does this antenna capture XM Weather on a GDL 52 or is the GMX 42 required?

Yes. This antenna will work for that unit.

Q: Is the Garmin GA 24 both a GPS and SiriusXM antenna, or just XM?

This is only the XM antenna.

Q: Does this stick to the aircraft window to boost signal? I am having trouble getting SXM signal in a Challenger 850

This unit is usually mounted on the dash but can also be mounted on a window.

Q: Dont you need a TNC to MCX connection to connect this antenna to a GDL52? Does it come with one?

No adapter is needed. Part # 11-17587 plugs directly into the GDL 52.
