p>Fly with the portable device of your choice and Garmin-caliber GPS data at the same time. GLO brings you the best of both worlds by combining GPS/GLONASS receivers with Bluetooth® technology so you can get precise position information on your iPad, iPhone or Android device.
Enjoy the Accuracy of GPS + GLONASS
GLO 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 to lock on to satellites approximately 20% faster and keep up with even the most demanding jet speeds. What’s more, GLO updates its position information 10x per second – up to 10x more often than the GPS receivers in many mobile devices. When you access geo-referenced charts, Garmin SafeTaxi or the moving map display in Garmin Pilot (6 months of which come free with your GLO purchase), you’ll know that what you see is the most precise picture possible.
Set it Up and Fly
Using Bluetooth® technology, GLO wirelessly pairs to your mobile device. Just use the included mount to set GLO on your glare screen and within moments, you’ll be receiving GLO’s position data. The device features up to 12 hours of battery life to keep your position on even the longest of flights, and charging GLO between uses is a cinch with the included USB cable or 12/24 Volt cigarette lighter adapter. A consumer version of GLO is also available for compatible mobile devices.
