Navgps Pro/PCFS product integrates the functionality of the Navgps moving-map with PCFlightsystem's
gyro unit. Now on a single iPAQ unit you have a gps driven moving-map with the security of a backup attitude-indicator.
Note: Please be advised that this is
not the same product as Navgps Pro. This product requires the presence of the gyro module. Av-data and topo-map
files are the same.
Installing the Software:
The software is for the iPAQ platform only. Download
and run the install software on your desktop.
Once installed on the iPAQ, you should see two additional Start-menu options:
- Navgps Pro+PCFS - select this to start the moving map software. It'll also automatically
start the PCFlightSystems' attitude indicator software.
- PPCEFIS - select this to use only the attitude indicator software.
Make sure you turn the gyro module on and that the gps is also connected and powered.
Integration between Navgps and PCFS software:
Both the software communicate constantly sending each other data.
When Navgps is active, if the attitude/pitch values go over a certain threshold - Navgps
will automatically switch to the PCFSEFIS screen.
Conversely, when PCFSEFIS screen active, you'll see the current flight-plan specific
information displayed on it.
Additionally, by default the 'Q' button is programmed so that you can manually toggle
between the two software.
