Nessun navigatore satellitare puo' sostituire la conoscenza personale dell`area in cui si vive, i problemi di traffico legati all`ora di punta oppure a lavori in corso. I nostri modelli sono in grado di condurvi da un punto A ad un punto B, in maniera molto efficiente, in aree di cui non avete conoscenza diretta.

Le scorciatoie che avete imparato nel corso degli anni possono non essere note al navigatore, che per creare una rotta utilizza un numero di parametri limitato.

The Geopilot II PLUS exports NMEA data (NMEA0183) and any autopilot that can receive NMEA data will communicate with the Geopilot II PLUS . We recommend consulting with your autopilot manufacturer to verify that the device accepts NMEA0183 data. A serial cable that will connect to the serial port on your Geopilot II PLUS (which has a DB9 connector that can be connected to your autopilot) is also available.

The EKP / Geopilot II PLUS will interface with any device (external GPS, etc.) that accepts NMEA0183 data. Please consult with the manufacturer of your device to verify that the device accepts NMEA0183.

Please note that RS232 devices will NOT communicate with the EKP / Geopilot II PLUS .

Press and hold the Speaker key for three seconds.

They could be removed or, more likely, they were moved in another menu. Another cause could be that you performed the wrong update , updating only software and not the Operative System Restart.

 

It is not possible to use in your motorbike the AvMap products. Mainly for two reasons: 1. they are not waterproof, 2. they are not equipped with audio output or wireless connection for auriculars.

When you plan a flight you can set the a VFR reporting point as a mark and save it as user waypoint. More easily you can add a VFR reporting point directly to the map (as for all the others POI). This procedure implies an automatic marking of the VFR reporting point. Example:

  • Press twice the MENU key, select FLIGHT PLAN and press ENTER.
  • Press once the MENU key, select VIEWED FP and press ENTER.
  • From the FLIGHT PLAN MENU select FP EMPTY and press ENTER.
  • Go back to the map and set the cursor on the departure airport icon.
  • Press ENTER, select ADD FP LEG and press ENTER.
  • Move the cursor on any place on the display where you want to fly over (like a VFR reportin point) and press ENTER.
  • Select ADD FP LEG and press ENTER to confirm (please note the automatic marking of the name to the waypoint).

To display the TAWS you need to set your unit. In Map mode, press once the MENU key, select once the MENU key, select TERRAINS and press ENTER to confirm. A menu is displayed: select TAWS and confirm pressing ENTER. After this operation the TAWS is not visible yet on the map. It is necessary to activate your own position (fix): this is possible connecting the GPS antenna to the AvMap EKP IV. Otherwise you can set the unit in Simulation mode: press twice the MENU key and select Simulator from the Main Menu. Press ENTER to enter the menu and set ON in Simulation. Once you set it, the TAWS are displayed at any scale.
Important Note, suitable as well for the users who carry on the Low Airways update: we want to underline that even if the TAW squares might appear anaesthetically, AvMap prefers to conform to what the TAWS proposes: to represent a set of rules for the security. Following this aim, thats why the Low Airways are reported on the map of your AvMap EKP IV in cyan and purple colour: we firmly believe they are the only two colours that can be perfectly displayed on the red, green or yellow squares of the TAWS.

This error may be caused by the fact that the trace files often contain inside track points.
Geosat Suite accepts files .gpx that contain ONLY TRACKS (so only the path) or ONLY contact  (Points / waypoints)
 
To split the file type you can do this;
 
- Open the file (kmz, kml, gpx or gdb) with Google Earth
- On the left menu, expand the file displaying the components
   (Eg TRACKS = Points + PATH)
 
- Eliminate Points
- Rename the PATH by entering the name of the track
 
- Save the resulting file format .KML (Save as)
- Convert the file to GPX using GPS Babel (and let selected
   "tracks") to obtain for  example TRACKS.gpx
 
- Reload the original file with Google Earth and do the same with the POINTS ( delete your PATH and leave the waypoints)
 
- Save the resulting file format. KML (Save as)
- Convert the file to GPX using GPS Babel (let selected
   "tracks") to obtain for example WAYPOINTS.gpx
 
- The two files and WAYPOINTS.gpx TRACKS.gpx can now be transferred into the Geosat Through, with no error messages.

In order to display the TAWS on your AvMap EKP IV you need:
a)To update the software version of your unit to the release 1.10.044R
b)To purchase the Jeppesen update including the Land Elevation data
Since the Land Elevation file is of a big size one if you havent updated your unit yet with this data, you need to send your Compact Flash back to the AvMap Technical Supporting Centre. You will pay the aeronautical data update only since the Land Elevation is loaded free of charge.
If your AvMap EKP IV is already updated with the Land Elevation data you do not need to send us back the Compact Flash. You just need to ask for the software and the new Jeppesen updated files. Next times the Jeppesen update could be received by e-mail including a complete procedure. We remember you that in order to carry on the upgrades you need a memory card reader.
