The KMD 150 has the ability to interface and control a BFGoodrich WX-
500 Stormscope 'black box' thunder storm sensor. The Stormscope
interface is switched on and off by using the joystick while displaying the
Main Menu screen. When the Stormscope interface is selected on, Key
1 on the main menu screen gives access to a dedicated Stormscope
screen. If selected in the Map Setup menus, lightning icons will also
appear on the map screens along with a visual and aural warning that
there are thunderstorms in your vicinity.
The software in your KMD 150 unit is tree structured. An analogy can
therefore be drawn between the trunk of a tree and MAIN MENU. MAIN
MENU is the heart of the operating structure and can be accessed by
pressing the HELP key after switching on the unit or pressing the MAIN
MENU key at any other time.
MAIN MENU has 5 main software branches, which in turn have their
own sub software branches. The diagram overleaf depicts the complete
tree structure and will serve as a good point of reference while you are
familiarizing yourself with your unit.
