  • Overview
    The GDL 82 Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) datalink, is the latest addition to the comprehensive lineup of certified ADS-B solutions available from Garmin. GDL 82 is a small, lightweight Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) datalink with a built-in GPS receiver. For aircraft owners looking for an economical and turnkey solution to satisfy the requirements of ADS-B “Out”, GDL 82 is a straightforward path to meet regulatory requirements.

    GDL 82 broadcasts on the 978 MHz frequency, providing a rule-compliant ADS-B “Out” solution for aircraft operating below 18,000’ in the United States. Installation is quick and easy because GDL 82 utilizes a patent-pending design, in which GDL 82 is installed in-line with the aircraft’s existing transponder antenna wiring to transmit the necessary ADS-B “Out” information. The WAAS GPS receiver required for ADS-B compliance is built-in and a GPS antenna is included to offer additional cost-savings for aircraft owners without an existing WAAS GPS on board their aircraft.

    82 also contains AutoSquawk interrogation technology, whichGDL interfaces with most Mode C general aviation transponders to synchronize the squawk code and pressure altitude information from the transponder with GDL 82, eliminating the need to install a separate dedicated UAT control panel and altitude encoder. (Please reference the installation manual to determine if the existing Mode C transponder meets compatibility requirements.) This technology not only simplifies installation but also eliminates the burden of the pilot manually keeping the squawk code in sync.

    Pilots who already utilize an ADS-B “In” receiver — such as the GDL 52, GDL 39/GDL 39 3D and the Stratus line of portable solutions — can receive additional benefits as the GDL 82 complements many existing products on the market. With ADS-B “Out” participation, pilots using these products have access to a more comprehensive ADS-B “In” traffic picture, resulting in improved situational awareness.

    Ask a question

    What is in the box for the Garmin GDL 82 Built In GPS Kit including WAAS? What additional items will I need to purchase to install?
    The box comes with the GDL 82, GA 35 WAAS GPS and the installation kit. You will still need coax cables from the GDL 82 to the transponder antenna and the unit to the WAAS GPS antenna. You will also need wire to draw up the wire harness for the unit.

    Will the GDL 82 be able to display TIS-B and FIB-B onto an Aera 660 through a cable like the GDL 39 does?
    No. The GDL 82 is only an ADS-B out unit. It does not perform ADS-B in functions.

    Does the Garmin GDL 82 Built In GPS Kit including WAAS include the WAAS GPS antenna?
    Yes, this kit comes with the Garmin GA 35 WAAS antenna.

    Is the Garmin GDL 82 compatible with KT76A?
    Yes, it is. Though you will want to get a transponder test to make sure your unit is operating properly.

    Does the GDL-82 unit need to be turned on AFTER the transponder is turned on? Can I turn on this unit BEFORE turning on the transponder?
    The GDL 82 powers on with the aircraft.

    I have a non waas Garmin 430 and a Garmin 327 Transponder---will I be able to utilize these units with the GDL-82?
    Yes. The gdl-82 will interface with the 327 antenna output to make the signal compliant.

    Looking at pics, I will need a female-female BNC cable from GDL-82 to transponder antennae. I know its BNC for the GPS antennae at the GDL-82 end. Is the GPS antennae have an MCX or BNC connector on it?
    You will need a BNC male to BNC male cable. BNC connectors are based on the inner pin, not the housing. The GA 35 WAAS GPS antenna has a TNC female antenna connector on it.

    Will this Garmin GDL 82 work with an older Mode C such as a Collins TDR 850 or an analog King?
    No. It will not work with these older units as they cannot handle the high rate of interrogation.

    Is the Garmin GDL 82 compatible with a Becker transponder?
    Yes, it is.

    I have a G3X and G5 and both have WAAS GPS antennas, with a GTX327 transponder. Do i need to install yet another GPS antenna or can it use the CANBUS from the G3X or G5 to get a position source to the Garmin GDL 82?
    You will need a GPS 20A with a connector kit and a GA 35 antenna. This unit can give GPS info to the G5 without having to buy a second antenna for the G5.

    Will the Garmin GDL 82 work with the Sandia Aero Space mode c stx 165 transponder?
    Yes, it will.

    Will the Garmin GDL 82 work with a KT78 transponder?
    Yes. Per Garmin, this unit will work with any mode C transponder that is in good working condition.

    Will the Garmin GDL 82 work with the Narco AT150?
    No, it won't. Garmin units, primarily the GDL 82 have an extremely high rate of interrogation on the transponder. The older Narco and King units can't handle it, they're just too old and even when they were brand new they weren't designed for it. Most modern transponders can handle it, such as the more recent Kings, Garmin, and various other transponders.

    Narco, older analog King, arc transponders, and basically any analog transponder that isn't Garmin brand will literally have their outputs fried by the GDL 82's interrogation rate.

    Will the Garmin GDL 82 work with the NARCO AT165 transponder?
    No, the Narco AT165 will not work with this unit. Garmin units, primarily the GDL 82 have an extremely high rate of interrogation on the transponder. The older Narco and King units can't handle it, they're just too old and even when they were brand new they weren't designed for it. Most modern transponders can handle it, such as the more recent Kings, Garmin, and various other transponders.

    Narco, older analog King, arc transponders, and basically any analog transponder that isn't Garmin brand will literally have their outputs fried by the GDL 82's interrogation rate.

    Will the Garmin GDL 82 work with a Garmin GTX320 transponder?
    This one is a maybe. When you perform your transponder test, your installer will require a strong result from the transponder in order to allow installation. This decision is at the discretion of the installer, and we cannot say for certain that each GTX 320 will pass this test. It is a case by case decision.

    Would a Garmin GTX320A have the same answer as a GTX320?
    Yes, both cannot be guaranteed.
