Default New GRT software: Enroute HITS, ADS-B TFRs, and more!

We've just posted new software for our Horizon HX & HXr and Sport SX display units. New features include:

Enroute Highway-In-The-Sky (HITS)



ADS-B TFRs (not shown here yet) and N-numbers. Note the ADS-B traffic at 12 o'clock-- Aircraft participating with ADS-B Out will have N numbers displayed. (Mode C traffic does not.) Also, this shot shows the new SVE Synthetic Vision Elevation number for cruise flight, derived from the synthetic vision database and GPS altitude or baro setting. It's the green number below the flight path marker.



Another shot, this time with the non-shaded METAR map, which shows N numbers a little clearer.



And by request-- A compass rose ring and the option for airspeed and altitude tapes on the North-Up page.



Software updates are free as always and available on the Sport SX, Horizon HX and HXr software pages of our website. There are a large number of minor updates with the new software as well-- be sure to read the revision notes on the software download page so you know what to expect. Let me know how you like it!

Will there be any more updates to the WS? The last one was 8/2012. We sure could use "Don't reset alarm inhibits on transition to in-flight".

Katie,
Will 6c allow me to use the gps in the SkyRadar D2 as gps 2? If so, how do I activate it, as it is USB based not serial.

Bob

Not related to this update but does any one know if we can have a customized (multiple page) as the start up page. This is when I power up the system, it will go to my selected split screen of map/eng?

The answer is "yes". Choose your start up page as described in the Horizon set up manual, page 2-5 (grtavionics.com). I see map/engine as one of the options.

Great and thanks. I will give it a try when I go to upgrade the S/W.

Installed the update on my Hxr this afternoon and it looked great on the ground. Will fly it tomorrow. I am very happy with my decision to upgrade to Hxr as the improvements just keep coming. Customer support has been excellent, as well.

In an earlier test of this latest release, I was ale to assign the SkyRadar GPS data stream as GPS2 on Leggs' plane (HXr + Mini).

You can also disable different pages that you don't want displayed so you don't have to scroll through them.
