AEA 2023: Garmin PlaneSync


PlaneSync is Garmin’s new wireless system for remotely communicating with its onboard avionics. It utilizes the new GDL 60 LTE/Wi-Fi/Bluetooth unit and the Garmin Pilot app for loading nav databases, checking fuel and aircraft voltage, offloading engine data and viewing the aircraft’s location on the airfield. It was showing the system at the Aircraft Electronics Association International Convention and Trade Show and Aviation Consumer Editor-in-Chief Larry Anglisano took a look at it with Garmin’s Jim Alpiser.
