Guardian Avionics Aero 454 To Be Unveiled At Oshkosh
Guardian Avionics plans to introduce what it describes as a breakthrough instrument for 21st century panels unlike anything on the market today. The Aero 454 receives data from your airplane’s Garmin GPS units (430, 530, 650, 750, G900, G1000) and re-transmits it simultaneously to as many as three iPad or other tablet devices held by pilots or passengers. It can now also transmit Standby frequencies on the SL30/SL40 from your Flight-guide IEFB app Airport Pages.
The new Aero 454 is an FAA/TSO certified product. It can reference locations, maps, flight plans from the Panel Mounted GPS’s, approaches, departures, and much more on your iPad/tablet. You will no longer lose GPS signal because of banking or a heated windshield.
The unit will communicate with any app, including Flight Guide, ForeFlight, WingX, Jeppesen, Garmin Connect, and others for GPS Location. When integrated with Flight Guide IEFB app, the user will have access to GPS location, flight plans as well as have the ability to change Radio Frequencies on the SL30 directly from the app. For passengers, Guardian says the Aero 454 will help eliminate the “Are we there yet?” questions. They'll see where the airplane is on their own iOS or other devices.
The Aero 454 (with CO detector) mounts easily in most panels and will drastically enhance your WAAS GPS capabilities when compared to portable Bluetooth receivers. Aero 454 is factory installed in all new Cirrus SR20 and SR22 aircraft models. Guardian Avionics CO Detectors are also standard on Cessna 172, 182, 206 and Diamond Aircraft.
