Garmin GDL 82 ADS-B installed this week

Recommended Posts

Don't have any experience yet haven't talked to anyone yet who has

IN to see if its doing what is supposed to do. Other than the antenna

being mounted on top of panel you can't tell its even installed. Warning

light and switch.

I got GDL 82 installed in my Sting last week.  We had to replace the transponder antenna with the shark fin version and add new GPS antenna. In terms of pilot interface the only two things added were the anonymous switch and the panel-mounted LED warning the pilot of an ADS-B fault.

BTW, anybody wanting to install ADS-B before the 2020 deadline, might want to think about picking up their equipment now, because I think the rush is starting.  I tried to buy a GDL-82 from Spruce and they are out of stock until MAY.  Sporty's and most of the other big shops are sold out too.  I got one from Sarasota Avionics, it arrives Tuesday.  But if you have near term upgrade plans, just be aware that the more popular gear like the 82 might get scarce or only available on the secondary market at a steep markup.
