Garmin is offering a $200 rebate on the Garmin GDL 52 portable SiriusXM/Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast receiver until Sept. 28.
The offer combines with a $200 rebate from SiriusXM Aviation, an AOPA partner; a three-month SiriusXM free trial; and a free one-year AOPA membership, for a total value of up to $700. Details are available on the AOPA partner page for SiriusXM Aviation.
