Advanced features in a light, compact package

The lightweight, compact aera 660 fits in any flight bag and comes packed with features using the latest in Garmin technology. As a dedicated navigator, it quickly and reliably acquires GPS and GLONASS satellite consellations and combines advanced navigation tools with rich, interactive, dynamically drawn aviation maps all displayed on a 5 inch, bright and sunlight-readable diagonal capacitive touchscreen display. For those who are familiar with the Garmin GTN™ touchscreen GPS/NAV/COMM, G5000® integrated flight deck of even the Garmin Pilot™ app you will have no trouble using the intuitive interface to quickly pan across the map screen, pinch to zoom and more. A quick settings menu is available through the use of the power button on the top which allows you to change from portrait to landscape orientation, volume and brightness and more and the aera 660 comes with a snap-in style powered mount for easy transportation between your aircraft and home.

Complete Flight Mapping

The aera 660 aviation portable comes preloaded with detailed flight mapping (including Australia Pacific Jeppesen database), terrain and obstacles alerting. View overheard and vertical profiles of the topography beneath you with the graphical Terrain page. With IFR map mode, you can display and navigate on high or low enroute airways and the touchscreen map cursor can reference METAs (Minimum Enroute Altitudes) and distances between intersections. The aera 660 can even provide vertical navigation (VNAV) guidance to simplify en-route transitions.

Compatible with numerous Garmin avionic devices

With an optional power/data cable (sold seperately) you are able to connect with your Garmin avionics. Accept flight plans from your GN 750/650 and GNS 530W/430W navigators and upload frequencies to the standby position of your GTR 200 Comm radio, GTR 225 Comm radio or GNC 255 NAV/COMM radio. You can also provide your Garmin NAV/COMM radios with the GPS position source required to look up nearest frequencies.

Bluetooth® technology for an improved flying experience

The aera 660 can easily interface with compatible devices using Bluetooth® connectivity via Garmin Connext. Control your Garmin VIRB® action cameras wirelessly with this device so you can start and stop recording and capture photos.

3D Vision technology

aera 660 comes with the revolutionary 3D Vision technology giving you with a virtual 3-D behind-the-aircraft perspective view of surrounding terrain derived from GPS/GLONASS and the onboard terrain database. Slide your finger across the touchscreen to rotate the view and show land and water features, obstacles, runways and airport signposts in relative proximity to the aircraft. Connect to an attitude source (such as a Flight Stream 210, GDL 39 series portable ADS-B data link or a GTX 345 ADS-B transponder) and Garmin SVX synthetic vision and attitude command bars will automatically appear on your display. Additionally, the aera 660 comes with forward-looking terrain avoidance capabilities which allows the device to predict in advance where towers or ostables may exist and then shades the landscape with amber or red overlays to indicate those areas.

    Great bit of kit

    This is a very good bit of lit - but prepared to suffer the burden of the Garmin ecosystem for your Aircraft. NOT compatible with other avionics - only Garmin and the annual subscription is well north of $300. Otherwise good gear.

    Pros: Easy to use, clear, works well in flight
    Cons: Garmin subscriptions

    Very good VFR unit

    Overall a very good basic VFR unit. I bought the AERA 660 to replace a 20 year old Garmin Pilot III and it does that well! Price was very good and the box contained everything I needed. The only negatives I have, and these are minor, are that: 1. it could do with more battery life. I seem to be getting 3 hours (in daylight conditions) where I think it really needs to be >5 hours. Sure it comes with a cigarette lighter plug, but not all aircraft have those these days. 2. there is not as much flexibility as I would like, to what can be displayed in the screen set-up However for the price I am happy.

    Pros: Its Garmin, so you know it works straight out of the box
    Cons: A bit more battery life would be good

    Does exactly what it says in the box

    I bought this for my small sports aircraft. I wanted to mount it on an existing RAM mount. Unfortunately you have to disassemble the yoke mount supplied to fit the RAM mount ball. This leaves the charging wires loose in my cockpit, so I am now going to install a cigarette charger... I had wanted to avoid that, and purchased a spare battery and external charger, which I will now not need. I also find changing the battery a bit difficult in flight anyway. Operationally, the GPS works well, and there is a vast amount of functionality, so I am very happy with my purchase. It is easier to read in sunlight than an Ipad, and fits my cockpit better. I will still use the iPad for planning, but this dedicated unit is a great addition and easier to use in flight, and less finicky. I have only used it a couple of times, and I am just starting my navigation training, but this unit gives me confidence that I will be able to locate myself if I get lost.

    Pros: Compact and effective, great price
    Cons: Can’t use without wired backing plate, batteries difficult to change in flight

    An excellent piece of equipment; very neat and well made. First class.

    A very well made product. The screen is very sharp and clear even in bright sunlight. The touch screen operates very well and is easy to use. It contains many options that I will never use in my RV7 home built aircraft, including some that are only useable in America; no good in Australia. It is a very sophisticated unit, and for $1100 is should come with a full instruction book. My old 495 had an excellent book which I referred to many times. I am very pleased with it.

    Pros: An excellent product.
    Cons: My last Garmin 495 cost around $1600. It failed after about ten years. Garmin no longer support it. The Aero 660 cost around $1100 including the bare wire kit and express freight. I just hope that it last longer than ten years. No comprehensive instruction book included..

    It's very easy to use. The datum on Japanese map are exact.

    Anyway,I like it very very much. The aera 660 is very small and light. But it's my great co-pilot.

    Pros: The machine is very light and thin.I like the touch panel.Also like the zoom in ,zoom out by my fingers easily
    Cons: The datum of the aera 660 is a little bit few. I would like get more date for example the chart.
