Rugged, portable navigator with 3D vision and wireless capabilities

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.

    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.

    Even better than expected

    I was expecting good things, it didn't disappointed. Screen is clear and easy to use. Simple menus. Can use straight out of the box, before reading the manual. Some of the minor aerodrome data (circuit direction) is incorrect even with the latest update.

    Pros: Easy to use, good mount.
    Cons: Some minor nav data

    Excellent screen brightness in sunlight -leaves tablets for dead

    Bear in mind I have not flown with it yet and I am only a recreational pilot but I make the following observations. Excellent screen brightness and responsiveness to touch.Can customize information tabs from an extensive list to suit your taste. I find the info on tablet displays too much. Less is better. I really only use Track, Bearing, ETA, Distance, UTC. The rest is homework in flight planning. Menus very intuitive. Mounting system is a bit big and clunky. I prefer the Ram mount system. Power supply lead has a cigarette lighter plug but am using the supplied usb charging power lead. Will run off either. Very fast satellite lock on. An external gps can be connected via bluetooth. A gotcha was the one time free update with the supplied code. Needed tech help(very responsive). Was explained that I had to choose 1 box out of each category. ie had to choose taxi guidance for United States. Then after downloading only choose to install what is needed. Bluetooth to various devices seamless. Like all Garmin products you pay! for Jepperson map updates. Uses: Pacific Navigation Data, Worldwide-9 Terrain, and AC-U-KWIK International Airport Directory

    Pros: Excellent screen and its optimum size.
    Cons: Will dim to max 70% brightness when running of a power brick yet 100% brightness off a wall charger or powered usb socket.70% no better than tablets.

    good unit, easy to use , nice bright screen

    I also have an aera 500 so was pleasantly surprised at the improvemments. It is very intuitive to use . the new bright screen is great even in bright sunlight and touchscreen works very well. I especially like the new portrait mode option. Unfortunately in Oz we cannot use all its functions, eg XM weather,safe taxi etc

    Pros: portrai mode and bright new touchscreen
