Map options menu#
Choose to show/hide Advisories on the map. See Advisories for details.
Change which airspaces will be displayed on the map from this menu. In particular, you filter airspaces by vertical limit or class.
The vertical limit selector also applies to NOTAM.
Configure the way the map displays navigation information
Bearing line to the next waypoint
Flightpath trend with 2, 5, 10 min indicators
Runway Indicators for the first and last Waypoint of the route
Wind vectors on map
Darken the map above a certain terrain elevation
Select the charts from among those you own and have installed (See Store) that you wish to see on top of our SmartChart.
The first one is displayed above the second one and so on. You may reorder the charts by drag and drop. SmartChart is always at the bottom and may not be disabled.
You may set display properties of the NOTAM from this menu. See NOTAM for description of our NOTAM management.
Air Navigation Pro offers a large database of obstacles to the navigation, not only AREA 1. From this menu, you may review the last update and select vertical filtering options.
For select countries, you can color some power lines according to their height above ground. Currently only applicable to Norway.
To see this menu entry, you need to acquire the Obstacles product, either as standalone, as part of our subscriptions plans, or if your Air Navigation Manager organisation provides a specific database.
Terrain awareness (TAWS)#
You can choose to enable/disable the Terrain awareness on the moving map and in the 3D EFIS module (see 3D view (EFIS)). Enabling it will display a layer on the map showing terrain that is at or above current altitude.
There are 2 different colors:
Red - Terrain above current altitude
Yellow - Terrain below current position up to 50 meters
This option requires you to have an internet connection, an ADS-B, Safesky, or a FLARM device. You can choose here how traffics should be displayed on the map, as well as activating or deactivating alerts.
The Traffic information menu includes the following options:
Display traffic on map
Consider traffics at your altitude +/-
Alerts on nearby/conflicting traffics
Display traffic on map#
Traffic display on the map is deactived by the default. To display any traffic style on the map, you can select among the following options:
None (selected by default) - No traffic will be displayed on the map even if you are connected with a source that provides traffic information.
Generic symbols - traffics are displayed as arrows.
Aircraft Symbols - An icon will be used to symbolize the traffic based on its type: Unknown, Glider, TowPlane, Helicopter, Parachute, ParachuteDropPlane, Hangglider, Paraglider, Aircraft, Jet, UFO, Balloon, Airship, UAV, Obstacle, Ultralight, UAM_VTOL, and Gyrocopter.
TCAS Symbols - traffics are displayed using TCAS icons.
Seeing the traffic on the map requires either an internet connection, an ADS-B receiver, Safesky or a FLARM device. Then turned on, the TCAS algorithm is working to predict conflicts. (See the Traffic collision).
Consider traffics at your altitude +/-#
Traffics can be filtered by altitude difference to avoid displaying irrelevant traffics. Only traffics that are within (+/-) the selected threshold will be displayed in that case:
2000 feet / 610 metres
3000 feet / 914 metres
4000 feet / 1219 metres
5000 feet / 1524 metres
6000 feet / 1829 metres
7000 feet / 2134 metres
8000 feet / 2438 metres
You can further customize the appearance of the traffics displayed:
Show tail number
Alerts on nearby/conflicting traffics#
Air Navigation Pro can display visual alerts as well as reproduce audio alerts to alert you about nearby traffics. You have the option to turn alerts by type here:
There are 2 type of alerts: Traffic informations and Traffic Warnings.
Traffic Information: Alert about nearby traffics in a collision course which are less than 45 seconds away
Traffic Alert: Alert about nearby traffics in a collision course which are less than 20 seconds away
Traffic alerts will only work if take-off has been detected or triggered and GPS accuracy is good enough to display the current position of the aircraft on the map. The traffic algorithm is smart and will only alert your of converging traffics.
Subscription plans (Smart Lite, Smart Classic and Smart Advanced) include a SafeSky subscritpion. You can turn on the ‘Connect to Safesky’ to display SafeSky’s live traffic on the map. You will be requested to enter an e-mail address and Aircraft Registration (in case no aircraft has been set) as part of the activation.
Safesky is a collaborative traffic sharing service using data connection of your device. Connecting to Safesky requires a subscription plan. Once you are connected to Safesky and selected any displayed traffic style on the map, traffics will be displayed aroung the center of the map or your current location when flying.
You can define here the waypoints to be displayed. You can show/hide our database, useful if you are using an own database (via Air Navigation Manager for example).
You may filter aerodromes with short runways, and you can filter to only show those with asphalt/concrete surfaces. Filtered aerodromes will be displayed dimmed and interaction with them is not possible.
