Garmin has increased the interface capability through the addition of a second serial port to allow even more connectivity simultaneously.
With two serial ports, the pilot can display traffic information, send frequencies to a Garmin SL30 or SL40 radio, send position information and more to other select aircraft devices.
Like many other Garmin portable devices, the aera 796 also includes a GXM™ 40 receiver for XM WX Satellite Weather and Sirius XM Radio.
XM WX Satellite Weather gives next generation radar (NEXRAD), aviation routine weather reports (METARs), terminal aerodrome forecasts (TAFs), temporary flight restrictions (TFRs), lightning, winds aloft, turbulence forecasts, PIREPs, icing forecast and several other important weather products.
All orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Due to a touch-panel supply issue, the Garmin aera 796 will experience a gap in unit production.

Added support for helicopter missions The addition of optional City Navigator data on the aera 796 allows the user to search and locate any desired surface address for use as a flight plan waypoint or for direct-to navigation.
This makes it even easier for helicopter and fixed-wing operators to respond to critical missions around streets and highways, survey land or perform search and rescue operations.
XM WX subscription data and coverage area information is available from XM WX Satellite Weather.
The Garmin 796 will also display traffic if coupled to a compatible traffic source like the GTX 330, showing TIS (traffic information service) where available.
