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 CMax™ 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.
