GDL-39
 

Granted, I haven't been paying close attention lately but in looking at Garmin's website I'm seeing only three ADS-B In sources for the Garmin 660. I can't imagine they've made the GDL-39 (3D & normal) obsolete, but have they?

I guess this is a better question to ask Garmin but thought for a quicker answer I'd post the question here.

I am using the gdl39 with the 660. Still worked fine yesterday.

Hello Mike,

Not sure what your concern is, but Garmin still sells the GDL 39 and has it on its website.

https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/93601

We no longer sell the GDL 39 3D since the attitude feature is standard with all the new GDL 50/50R/52/52R models and there are not separate "3D" models.

Additionally, a GDL 50 is the same price as a GDL 39 3D with more features standard including built-in battery, attitude sensors, and dual RS-232 ports on all GDL 5X models.



Thanks,
Steve

Thanks guys. I'd been at the link below (the 660 descriptive pages) and at the bottom, under the title "Compatible Products", the GDL-39 wasn't included.

Clearly I misunderstood something. Wouldn't be the first time. I much appreciate the responses.
