Sectional (North Up) on Hx

Postby bsiusimpex » Tue Jul 30, 2019 1:29 am

I updated my GRT Hx EFIS software to ver 11.02 last week, then purchased and downloaded VFR Sectional charts from Seattle Avionics. I get the SHOW & CHART popup softkeys (MAP Page) such that I can select Chart and SEC respectively. However, the Sectional Chart on my MAP page is displayed in ARC format only. I do not get the VIEW popup softkey as shown in the GRT/Seattle Avionics ChartData Manual (Sect 4.1 item 5 ) such that I can place my MAP and its Sectional Chart in North Up format. Am I missing something during my installation? Any guidance shall be greatly appreciated.

The HX does not have a VIEW button. To change map views, keep pushing the MAP button. The map page will cycle through arc, center/circle, HSI, and north-up modes, followed by versions of the same pages with engine data at the bottom.

If you push the SLEW button, you will go to a temporary full-screen north-up mode with arrow buttons to move around. When you exit SLEW mode you will return to the last map mode.

Thank You Jeff. Turned out my North Up Option was turned off in the General Setup page. Sorry for the brain freeze moment!
