Ultra-Bright, High-Resolution Display
The FlightMax EX500 features the industry-leading,
high-resolution, active-matrix liquid-crystal display (AMLCD),
providing you with the brightest, most versatile big-screen moving
map available. With nearly three times as many pixels as some
competitors displays, and an incredibly wide viewing angle, it
provides clear and concise navigation & information over an
exceptional color-contoured terrain and water base map.
One of the Best Maps Available
All special-use and class airspaces are color-keyed for added
clarity, and can be displayed at the same time as NEXRAD or weather
radar data for a more complete picture. Comprehensive Jeppesen
NavData™ and an expansive North American obstacle database provide
an unparalleled view of your flight environment.
Full overlay capability allows you to add or remove traffic,
Stormscope, and radar, with 180-degree forward view and 360-degree
center view maps.
Curved Paths & CMax™ Approach Charts
The FlightMaxEX500’s large display shows easy-to-see curved
flight path segments such as DME arcs, holding patterns and
procedure turns, overlaid with traffic, terrain, weather, airports
and runway diagrams. In addition, Avidyne's
Electronic Approach Charts allows you to view all available
procedures and airport diagrams in the Jeppesen database, with an
overlay of the flight plan and aircraft position, taking the guess
work out of shooting instrument approaches.
A Great Value
The integrated-datalink FlightMax EX500 provides the most
features, functions, and overall utility available, all at a price
unmatched in the industry. The FlightMax EX500’s high-resolution
display allows you to easily see your flight plan and display
weather all along your route. Having the complete picture on your
map display gives you the ability to avoid weather and stay clear of
restricted airspaces, saving you time and fuel.The FlightMax EX500
has a complete terrain and water base map, as well as a North
American database containing towers and other obstacles greater than
200’ AGL, providing unsurpassed depiction of terrain hazards.
Obstacles can be displayed with MSL altitude labels, and Avidyne’s
exclusive terrain. The Trip page provides supplemental
information about your route of flight including a list of all
remaining waypoints in the active flight plan, with distances and
times for each leg. Graphical METARs for all reporting airports are
also in the list, which can help you in determining an alternate
airport in the event of inclement weather or an emergency situation.
Textual METARs are also available for each reporting airport.
