Street Information Description — This mode just displays the name of the
street close to your present position.
Horizontal Profile Description — (This function requires that map data has
been uploaded from Magellan MapSend Topo for the United States and
that your present position as well as the projected horizon falls within the
area uploaded.) This mode displays at the bottom of the Map screen a
graphical representation of the horizon at a fixed distance from your
present position. This fixed distance is equal to the map scale you have
selected for the Map screen, so as you zoom in or out, the horizon
displayed will change. In the Horizon Profile mode, you will also notice a
line projected out from your present position icon to a shorter
perpendicular line. The intersection of the two lines indicates the location
on the map where the horizon is being computed.
You should note that when you select Horizontal Profile, your Map
Orientation will change to "Track Up" so you may need to change that
when you are done viewing the horizontal profile. If you change
Orientation to something other then Track Up while viewing the Horizontal
Profile, the default Two Data Fields is displayed. Changing the Orientation
back to "Track Up" will revert back to the Horizontal Profile.
Available Data Options
Bearing This is the direction to your destination from your present position,
in degrees, from North.
Distance This is distance (measured in the Nav Units selected in Setup) to
Speed This is the rate that you are travelling. The unit of measure is
selected in Setup - Nav Units.
Heading This is the direction you are moving (measured in degrees).
When the heading and bearing are the same, you are travelling on a direct
line to your destination.
VMG (Velocity Made Good). This is the speed that you are getting closer
to your destination. If the heading and bearing are the same, then VMG
will be the same as Speed since all of the speed that you are travelling is
being applied to arriving to your destination. However, if you are off
course, your VMG will be less than the speed that you are travelling.
CTS (Course To Steer). This is the angle that you need to turn to put you
back on course.
