The G5 electronic flight instrument is now capable of displaying outside air temperature (OAT) and true airspeed (TAS) using a temperature probe and the new Garmin GAD™ 13 adapter. Similar to other Garmin products, OAT displays along the bottom of the airspeed indicator, while TAS is displayed on the top of the airspeed indicator. When G5 is configured as a directional gyro (DG) or horizontal situation indicator (HSI), wind speed and direction is also displayed in the upper left corner of the G5. For standalone G5 installations, the GAD 13 and a temperature probe are required. For aircraft where G5 is paired with a compatible PFD such as G3X Touch, G5 will display this information with a software update. New for experimental aircraft, G5 can also display density altitude below the altimeter while the aircraft is on the ground.

My G5 (Experimental) is allready a couple of years old would it still be possible to connect the GAD13
You can most certainly interface the GAD 13 with your G5. The G5s will most likely need to be upgraded to the latest software, which you can download for free from the Garmin website.
