Softkeys colors : BrightWhite on Black : available menu entry Black on White : activated entry Grey on Black : unavailable entry (not yet implemented or not available in this aircraft) Black : no entry

UI code and usage selected entry is in Black on LightBlue entry with marks < or > are entries with limited number of choices. First choice doesn't show the < char, last one doesn't show the > char. Navigate from an entruy to the next or the previous by turning the large FMS knob, modify the value of the entry by turning the small FMS knob.

PFD Airspeed indicators The indicated airspeed tape is in knots and can show up to 1000 knots. Tha black pointer shows the current IAS. On the tape major ticks are shown at 10 knots interval, minor ticks at 5 knots interval. A pink trend vector shows the estimated speed in the next 6 seconds (in the limit of +/- 30 knots). There may be some Vspeeds marks (pink, text in white) specific to the aircraft (cf installation guide). It is possible to modify these values of the Vspeeds references by using the softkeys menu TMR/REF which make a window appear in the right down corner of the screen, and then navigating to the value to change it as described in UI code and usage chapter. The black pointer will take a red color if IAS exceeds the defined Vne. The true airspeed is shown under the speed tape, and the ground speed. Both are in knots. If the device is configured with stall angle of attack (see installation guide) then the softkeys menus PFD > AOA/WIND > AOA ON shows up a window just near the airspeed tape. This indicates the current normalized angle of attack, a LightBlue mark shows the best normalized angle of attack for approach. The softkey menu PFD > AOA/WIND > AOA AUTO make the AoA indicator showing up automagically if the gears are down and flaps out. The softkey menu PFD > AOA/WIND > WIND > OPTN1 shows up the direction of the wind relative to the aircraft (haeding and speed) The softkey menu PFD > AOA/WIND > WIND > OPTN2 shows up the direction of the wind with front and cross wind components The softkey menu PFD > AOA/WIND > WIND > OFF hides the wind indicator window

Altitude indicator The altitude tape is in feet, and shows from -990ft to 99990ft. The black pointer shows the current indicated altitude (determined from the air pressure), 20ft graduated. A trend vector indicates the readched altitude in the next 6 seconds in the limit of +/- 300ft. The barometric setting is shwon just under the altitude tape. It is graduated in inHg by default, but this can be modified to hPa using the softkey menu PFD > HPA, and back to inHg via menu PFD > IN. The setting to standard barometric value (29.92inHg or 1023hPa) can be automatically set by the menu PFD > STD BARO. The barometer setting is essential and can be done by turning the BORO knob in front of the device (left side, under the COMM knob). The selected altitude is indicated by a lightblue bug along the altitude tape. It is blocked at the upper or lower corner of the tape until the tape has in its range the selected altitude. While the selected altitude isn't in the +/- 300 ft range a black box indicate the selected altitude above the altitude tape. This box disappear when the indicated altitude is +/- 100 ft of selected altitude.

tcas: Traffic announciator is shown as there is a traffic in sight, until there is no traffic at all
