To display lat/long lines and lat/long labels
Consider Aux Pg 3 to set degrees, minutes, hundredths
- Text Med or Large (gives L/L text)
- Range > than display (suggest 100)
(displays Lat/Long lines)
With Lat/Long displayed,
The cursor is fairly easy to Place on L/L coordinates to create user waypoints
Recommend we use a naming standard of
Grid #/letter and corner
This leads to the question: once we start
filling up waypoints, which ones can we erase?
L/L of cursor displays for coordinate refinement
Option 1: PFD 10 mi scope (situational awareness), MFD 2 mi scope (accuracy)
Select a PFD inset scale large enough to display enough of the search grid for situational awareness
Select 2 mi range on the MFD—this displays L/L in ½ mile grids
The grid lines can be hard to see with topo background selected . Recommend turning topo off and terrain on (for altitude alerting <1000’—note: the terrain grids are also ½ mile sections)
Option 2: PFD 5000’ scope (accuracy), MFD as required (situational awareness)
5000’ PFD inset scale gives a display of ½ mile lat/long grids. May need to turn topo off to read grids.
Select MFD scale as desired for situational awareness
