Fly Direct-to or Navigate Flight Plans
Using its built-in worldwide airport database, the D2 Delta S aviator watch lets you access our signature Direct-to and Nearest routing functions by simply pressing either of 2 dedicated buttons. So, you can fly straight to the location or waypoint of your choice — or find the nearest airport if you need to land quickly. You can also view your flight path in relation to nearby navaids, airports, intersections and other surface features on the watch’s full-color moving map — or follow the instrument-like HSI course needle to your destination. It’s easy to pan and zoom the moving map to quickly expand your view of airports, waypoints, weather activity and VFR reference features such as roads, cities, bodies of water and more. And by setting your own waypoints, you can navigate to any location not included in the database. In fact, you can even create Mark on Target waypoints to easily reference — and return to — locations over which you’ve flown.
Enhanced Cockpit Connectivity
For even more work-saving convenience, you can our Flight Stream 510 wireless gateway (sold separately) to your cockpit avionics system, allowing you to use our Connext® technology to stream information between your compatible Garmin GPS navigator and your D2 Delta S watch. The synced GPS position data enables even more precise mapping detail on your watch. Plus, using a data field display, you can stream other information — such as altitude, airspeed, outside air temperature and more — onto your D2 Delta S in real time.
Sync up Your Flight Plan
In addition to the data streaming features, there’s another advantage to having the optional Flight Stream 510 in your aircraft. When connected to your D2 Delta series, Flight Stream 510 will automatically transfer flight plan changes from your compatible avionics to D2 Delta. This wireless flight plan transfer also works with our Garmin Pilot™ app, so your watch will always be in sync with your compatible Garmin products. What’s more, you can connect D2 Delta S via a network equipped with Wi-Fi® technology to wirelessly update the preloaded databases that come with your watch. A compatible ADS-B “In” device, such as our portable GDL® 50 receiver, will further enable the Garmin Pilot app to relay notifications of potential traffic targets, as well as other situational alerts, to your D2 Delta S watch.
Weather with Radar Overlay
For at-a-glance updates on the weather, D2 Delta S works wirelessly with your compatible smartphone to keep you informed. You can access location-based meteorological reports (METARs) and terminal forecast (TAF) information — including winds, visibility, precipitation, cloud cover, temperature, dew point, barometric pressure and more. A quick “hot key” shortcut — pressing Direct-to and Down keys — brings up high-resolution radar graphics (NEXRAD), overlaid on the moving map. So, you can easily access the data you need for weather trend awareness and smart preflight decision-making.
Flight Logging Is Automatic
With wireless connectivity to your smartphone, the D2 Delta series can make quick work of flight logging and other record keeping tasks. During takeoff, the watch will detect your aircraft’s change in altitude and automatically initiate the logbook function — recording date, duration, total flight time and route. Then after your flight is complete, it will sync this logbook data via your smartphone to flyGarmin.com® and the Garmin Pilot app for safekeeping.
Customizable data fields on your D2 Delta S watch let you easily access the data that’s most important to you — such as current GPS groundspeed, GPS track, distance from waypoints/airports, estimated time en route, bearing, glide ratio and other key flight parameters. A handy altitude alerting feature can be set to notify you when reaching or leaving a preselected altitude. You can also select a stopwatch function for timing approaches or flight legs. There are vibration alerts to let you know when you’ve drifted off course or reached your desired altitude. And a baro-based configurable O2 Altitude alert feature will vibrate to remind you when supplemental oxygen is required. There are also various other timer functions with vibrating alerts that activate when it’s time to switch fuel tanks or perform other time-critical tasks.
