Select weather products are also available in Puerto Rico. The base service now includes weather
products such as lightning, (including
cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground activity),
graphical winds aloft, temperatures aloft,
AIRMETs and SIGMETs. In addition to providing
detailed weather information, the audio-enabled
GDL 69A SXM receiver provides SiriusXM Satellite
Radio entertainment in the cockpit.
The new GDL 69 and GDL 69A SXM receivers use the
same antenna, offers pin-for-pin compatibility
and slides into an existing GDL 69 rack. With
similarities in weight and electrical load, the
GDL 69 and GDL 69A SXM receivers are designed as
a direct replacement for existing installations.
The GDL 69 and GDL 69A SXM receivers are
expected to be available in April 2015 for a
list price starting at $3,875, while the
helicopter versions are expected to become
available later in the second quarter of 2015.
