Getting Started

EDITING/CREATING A FLIGHT PLAN VISUALLY

From MAIN MENU select
the FLIGHT PLAN key,
followed by EDIT FPLN.
Use the joystick to select
the desired flight plan
number and then press
VIEW MAP.
If the
selected flight plan was
empty, the adjacent
screen
will
appear
showing your last posi-
tion, if it were not, the
start point of the flight
plan will be shown in the
center of the screen. If the desired flight plan was empty you can use
the joystick to move the pointer to the desired start waypoint and press
ADD WPT (ADD WayPoinT). This will place an S (for Start) next to the
waypoint. Move the pointer to the first waypoint and press ADD WPT
again. This will place an E (for End) next to the waypoint. In either case
when the ADD WPT key is pressed the unit will try to attach the waypoint
to a displayed waypoint. If one is not available it will create a user way-
point in the next available memory location. To systematically create
additional legs, draw a line from the waypoint marked (E), with the
pointer, to the next waypoint and press ADD WPT again. You will notice
that the last point in the Flight Plan will always be labeled (E). Once you
have finished building the Flight Plan press PREV PAGE.
If you wish to add a new waypoint to a flight plan which you have
stopped building, whether it is at the start, the end or the middle of the
flight plan, you will need to highlight the appropriate point (i.e.: either the
start waypoint (S), the end waypoint (E) or the leg line in which you wish
to add a new waypoint). As soon as you do this, the ADD WPT or GRAB
LINE key will appear. Press the ADD WPT or GRAB LINE key to join the
pointer back to the flight plan line and then move it to the new waypoint.
Once over the new waypoint press ADD WPT. Unwanted Waypoints
can be removed by pointing at them and pressing the DELETE WPT
key. Use the PREV PAGE key to return to MAIN MENU. This function is
not available in External GPS Mode.
