Flight Stream 510 is a Garmin patented multimedia card that includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology. It allows wireless database transfers to popular Garmin avionics via Garmin Database Concierge using the Garmin Pilot App, including Garmin GTN Series, Garmin G1000 NXi, G2000/3000/5000, G500/G600, G500H (via GTN unit), and GNX 375/GPS 175 (via GTN unit).

The benefit of wireless connectivity is that you do not need to remove your data card from the airplane, or use separate hardware — simply download data updates at your convenience to an iOS or Android mobile device, connect to Flight Stream 510 in the cockpit, and upload your data seamlessly.

  • Wireless flight plan transfers
