Build your desired map view
As all the objects are in a vector format, you can build three custom map views choosing the data you need most, and you can switch from one view to another with a click of the cycle button.
Tidy maps for an easier reading
Colours, fonts and icons have been studied to create tidy and immediate maps. The palette for Land Elevation has been studied to highlight aeronautical navdata and terrestrial fonts.
Highlighted aeronautical data
You can highlight the aeronautical data with respect to the terrestrial ones so that you can always find what you need quickly, without loosing map detail. Different colours for terrestrial and aeronautical names (black / gray) help you also finding what you need faster.
What matters first
Maps have been designed so that what matters to you appears first, for example, taller vertical obstructions are drawn first and appear more relevant. Sorting of airports points is done by their type so that less important airports never overlap more important ones.
The Smart zoom improves readability and makes sure that smaller cities’ names do not hide bigger cities but, the font size varies in relation to what is displayed. AvMap maps include anti-clutter tricks for vertical obstructions: enabling the anti-clutter option the vertical obstructions are drawn in a semitransparent way.
Airport Diagrams & Approach Plates
EKP V is preloaded with approach plates and diagrams of the airports of United States, provided by Seattle Avionics.
Following a visual approach procedure is very easy: select an airport as destination, open its geo-referenced approach plate and watch your plane icon moving on it.
Import your custom maps
In addition of the incredible set of preloaded maps, you can add your own charts! The AvMap Suite helps you converting and importing charts to your EKP V.
