General Information
NOTE:
Terrain data is not available for certain areas of SOUTH AMERICA cen-
tering on the Amazon Basin and in EUROPE a larger portion of the
Ukraine bordering Russia. Please exercise extreme caution when flying
in these areas because all terrain is displayed as less than 1000 feet/500
feet respectively, on the KMD 150.
A color key is displayed on the Nav Menu (or Map Menu if in External
GPS Mode). This is just one key press away from the main Map screen
so you can refer to it easily during flight.
By default, terrain data is displayed at all zoom levels. The display of ter-
rain data can however be switched on and off at different zoom levels if
desired. See the section covering the
Map Setup
screen for more
details.
WARNING
NEVER USE THE TERRAIN DISPLAYED ON THIS EQUIPMENT AS
YOUR SOLE REFERENCE FOR TERRAIN AVOIDANCE.

MEMORY LOCATIONS

In the function descriptions, three types of memory, EPROM, RAM and
NVM, are mentioned. You may find it useful to know where various
types of information are stored in order to make best use of the equip-
ment. The EPROM's (Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory) are
in the database card and are used to hold the operating system and the
database. The database card can be replaced periodically in order to
upgrade the operating system and update the database. The RAM
(Random Access Memory) is built into the unit and is used to store all
user-defined data such as User waypoints and Flight Plans. The RAM is
maintained by battery power from an internal Lithium cell that should be
replaced by your Bendix/King dealer every three years to prevent loss of
user-defined data. The NVM (Non Volatile Memory) is also built into the
unit. It stores initialization data, serial number, PIN number and perfor-
mance log details. This memory is non-volatile, which means it is
retained even if the memory battery is removed. If you choose to activate
the PIN number security feature (similar to that available on many car
radios) the non-volatile nature of the NVM ensures your PIN can not be
tampered with or erased.
