By default, the aural message is generated at the EGPWS
Warning volume, but the audio level may be adjusted to a
different level using the RCD.
In addition to the aural annunciations provided, visual text
annunciations can also be overlaid on the terrain display for a
period of time when the monitor condition is entered. The
visual annunciation may be enabled or disabled via the RCD.
If configured to do so, the EGPWS presents the following text
strings overlaid on top of the terrain image upon activation of
the aural. The text is centered on the display. The text will
remain on the display until any one of the following
conditions exists: configured timer expires (typically 16
seconds), range on the terrain display is changed, a new voice
Terrain/Obstacle caution or warning condition exists, or the
Height Above Field Elevation is less than or equal to 300 feet.
TOO FAST (amber)
TOO HIGH (amber)
