Getting Started

DATABASE SELECTION

Both the internal way-
points (i.e. Jeppesen
data, cities etc.) and user
defined waypoints are
stored in your unit in a
series of databases.
During normal use of
your unit you will need to
select items from these
databases, whether it is
to find out airport fre-
quency information, or
select a DIRECT TO
point or when creating a
Flight Plan. In each case the adjacent screen will appear. Use the joy-
stick to highlight the database in which the desired item is contained and
press SELECT.
The second stage in the
selection
process
requires you to choose
the desired item. This is
achieved by using the
joystick.
Once the
desired item is displayed
press SELECT to select
the item.
If the item
required is in an aero-
nautical database (i.e.:
AIRPORT, VOR etc) you
may well have the ability
to narrow the area of
search by selecting a two letter identify in the AREA field. For a com-
plete list of two letter ICAO identifiers please refer to
Appendix 2
in this
manual. If the label in the AREA field says ALL then the search will
include all countries available in your database card.
If the unit is set to receive external GPS/LORAN data, Key 2 reads MAP
and returns to the map screen.
