Approach Plates on the Horizon

IMPORTANT: This is NOT the Geo-Referenced SEATTLE AVIONICS package. These are non-geo-referenced PDF approach plates from the FAA. Horizon HX and HXr display units can display PDF approach plates when they are saved on an installed USB stick. The following PDF files explain how this works. Above-average computer skills are required for the download setup process.

NOTE: This feature was intended for use in multi-screen HX systems where one screen can be dedicated to viewing the chart.
