About JeppView FliteDeck


JeppView FliteDeck is designed for use in an aircraft while the aircraft is flying.
Proper use of FliteDeck can enhance positional awareness, assist with in-flight
replanning, and provide valuable information for normal and emergency operations.
Because FliteDeck is used during flight, the cockpit interface is simple and easy to
use:

FliteDeck eliminates the normal menu you would find in most Windows
programs. Tests have shown these types of menus are difficult to use in the
cockpit during flight.

FliteDeck contains no pop-up windows to block your view of essential


information on the screen.

You cannot resize the FliteDeck window during use. FliteDeck uses a fixed
amount of space on the screen.

You configure FliteDeck with a separate setup program, which eliminates


extra distracting buttons and menus in the program itself.

FliteDeck includes a GPS simulator trainer so you can learn the program
before trying to fly with it.

FliteDeck displays current weather by using your XM WxWorx Weather


Satellite service to enhance situational awareness.

Version 3.4, Released JUNE, 2008


Topics

New Features and Improvements


The release of version 3.4 incorporates two changes:

Microsoft
Windows
Vista

Settings previously stored in the [application].ini files are


placed in the registry during installation or moved to the
registry during an update.

The 3.4 installer places files in directories compatible with the


Microsoft Windows Vista file directory structure. If you have
already installed JeppView on Windows XP and 2000, you will
not see any change to file locations.

If you are a current Windows XP or Windows 2000 user migrating to


Microsoft Vista and would like to know where common files will be
stored, see Microsoft Windows Vista Compatibility Mode and
Microsoft Windows Vista Folders.
Satellite
Weather

A new feature has been implemented that allows the Jeppesen


Weather Controller (JWC) to initialize XmLink only when FliteDeck
launches. To enable the feature, open the Services Console and
place JWC in the Manual Startup option. See Advanced Configuration
of JWC for additional information.

Enroute Map
and Terminal
Chart Only
Components

Within the Enroute Nav page and the Terminal page, you can access
an Enroute Map on a larger view and a Terminal Chart Only
component with only the essential action buttons. These components
now display if they were viewed before switching to another page.
The application no longer defaults back to the Enroute Nav main
page and the Terminal main page when changing pages.
Fixes

Various improvements have been made to the Jeppesen Weather


Controller (JWC) installer:

Fixed a "VGA Resolution Error" message when trying to install


the Jeppesen Weather Services on a tablet PC in portrait mode
with a resolution of less than 800 x 600.

The JWC installer will always update the XmLink.ini file to


have the SaveX01=1 key value regardless of what application
first installed XmLink. This helps with the problem when
WxWorx on Wings , or another application that uses XmLink,
is installed and overwrites the registry entry. To fix this
occurrence, run the JWC installer and select the Repair
Service Installation option to add the SaveX01=1 entry to
the 3rd party XmLink file being used. This allows weather to
appear in FliteDeck. The installer will also remove Jeppesen's
XmLink directory and files to help eliminate confusion on
which XmLink is being used.

During an uninstall of the Jeppesen Weather Controller, the


registry key is not deleted if a 3rd party version of XmLink is
being used.

Improved the JWC installer so that XmLink is re-installed


during a Repair Service Installation option if the registry
key is missing or is not pointing to a directory that contains an
XmLink.exe file. This is so FliteDeck weather will work again if
the registry key was removed (uninstalling WxWorx on
Wings), and Jeppesen's XmLink was not installed because
WxWorx on Wings was installed first.

Satellite
Weather
Installation

Display of
Terminal
Charts

Fixed the clipping of some terminal charts when they are rotated.

Version 3.3, Released MARCH 26, 2007


Topics

Installation

European VFR
Charts

New Features and Improvements


The Electronic Chart Data (ECD) discs received in the mail have
been restructured where you must install ECD Disc 1 and 2 to
receive updated information for your terminal charts, program
updates, navigational data, and text data. If you update the data
electronically, you are not impacted with the CD update method.
Recommended Topic: Updating from CD.
Added European VFR Charts (Bottlang charts). The visual approach
charts cover 2,100 airports and aerodromes in 29 European
countries. You have the option of ordering VFR coverages by
country or by geographic regions. You may choose between
services that offer only VFR charts, only IFR charts, or both VFR
and IFR. Call Jeppesen Customer Service to order.

Administrative Permissions
Before installing FliteDeck on Windows 2000, XP or Vista, verify that the permissions
are set so individual users have access to full use of FliteDeck. Administrative
permissions are required for the initial installation of FliteDeck, and for any program
updates that might be available when clicking Get Update in the FliteDeck Setup
Program or with the CD update. Users do not need the full administrative
permissions to update only navigational data and terminal chart data.

Windows 2000 and XP


Follow these steps to confirm administrative rights on your home computer:
29

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


1. Right-click My Computer on your desktop and choose Manage from the
shortcut menu.
2. In the left pane, expand System Tools, and then click Local Users and
Groups.
3. In the right pane, double-click Groups.
4. Double-click Administrators. If your account has administrator rights, it
appears in the Members section. If your account is not listed, click Add and
enter the account name that you want to assign administrative privileges.
5. Click OK, and then reboot your computer if you have added an account.

Microsoft Windows Vista Compatibility Mode


If you are currently using a version of FliteDeck that is not Vista aware (version 3.3
or lower) on a Windows Vista machine with the compatibility mode feature, we
recommend that you turn off the compatibility mode and update the application with
the Vista aware Electronic Chart Data (ECD) Discs or electronically through the
Internet.
The Windows Vista Compatibility mode feature redirects some files and folders to
other areas of your computer. For instance, if you are a standard user and cannot
write to the C:\Program Files folder, it will redirect the files and place it in the
C:\Users\[User Profile] folder. Windows Vista gives the application its own
private copy of the file in the user profile, so the application will function properly.
When files are moved randomly, the Vista-aware Jeppesen applications might not be
able to find the files needed or place additional files on your computer, increasing the
amount of space required on your computer. It might also reduce application
performance and cause application conflicts.
For additional Windows Virtualization issues, visit Microsoft on the Web at
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/927387.

Try these steps to turn Windows compatibility mode off:


1. Ensure that all Jeppesen applications are closed.
2. Right-click the Jeppesen application icon on your desktop.
3. From the shortcut menu, click Properties.
4. Click the Compatibility tab.
5. Clear the Compatibility mode check box if it is selected.
6. Click OK.
7. Insert the Vista aware Electronic Chart Data CDs or update the application
electronically.

Activating JeppView/JeppView FliteDeck for New Users


When a new JeppView/JeppView FliteDeck installation is complete, you must activate
the program within 30 days, or the software will stop operating. Because you may
need to use FliteDeck on a notebook computer in addition to your desktop computer,
your license agreement permits this, as long as you are the only person using the
program. Therefore, you can activate the software on an additional computer.

To purchase site keys for additional computers or users, please contact


Jeppesen Customer Service.

If you have any problems activating your program, please contact Jeppesen
Technical Support.

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Starting FliteDeck
To start FliteDeck, do one of the following:

Click Start > Programs > Jeppesen > JeppView FliteDeck3 >
FliteDeck3.

Click the Jeppesen FliteDeck icon on your desktop.

The first time you open FliteDeck, the Setup Interview guides you through some
initial settings. For more information about the FliteDeck Setup program, see
FliteDeck Setup.

Opening Warning
Each time you open JeppView or FliteDeck, you see a warning with the effective date
of your Electronic Chart Data, the issue date of your terminal chart data, and the
cycle number of your Electronic Text Pages. Check the dates carefully. When the
data becomes obsolete, the fonts on the warning change color:

For NavData cycles, red signifies the data has expired and an update is
needed to ensure safety of flight.

For terminal chart cycles, the next issue date is highlighted in gray with the
number of days until, or after availability. You must ensure that you are flying
with current flight information, and comply with all FARs regarding pre-flight
planning and required or recommended flight information. It is recommended
that you update your chart data as soon as possible.

If you do not want the warning message to appear, select the Don't show this
warning again check box. As long as the data is current FliteDeck opens without
displaying the Welcome dialog. When the data goes beyond the effective or
recommended dates:

Installation and Activation


You are responsible for the accuracy of your flight plans and navigation information,
as well as the currency of your data. You must satisfy yourself that this information
is acceptable before using it for your operations. Click I understand and accept
this warning to start.

NOTE

FliteDeck uses your computer clock to determine your data status.


Ensure that your clock reflects the accurate date, time and time zone.
To update your data, see Keeping Your Programs Up-to-Date.

Expanding your Regional Coverage Area


Contact a Jeppesen Customer Service Representative to request a new coverage or
multiple coverages. After you have contacted Jeppesen, you can add the new
coverage area to your subscription by using the electronic update feature or the
Electronic Chart Data (ECD) Disc 1 and ECD Disc 2.

Adding Coverages Electronically


Please wait at least 30 minutes from the time you contacted a Jeppesen Customer
Service Representative before initiating an electronic download of new regions. This
gives the Customer Service system time to refresh your information in the Update
Server.
To add the new coverage area electronically:
1. Close JeppView FliteDeck (if it is open), and open the FliteDeck Setup
Program by clicking Start > Programs > Jeppesen > JeppView
FliteDeck3 > FliteDeck3 Setup.
2. On the Configuration tab, click Get Update.
3. FliteDeck logs in to the Update Server, finds your new information, and adds
the new coverage areas to your permanent subscription.

Adding Coverages from the Electronic Chart Data CD


You can add coverage areas to your subscription from the Electronic Chart Data
(ECD) Discs. Contact Jeppesen to request the new coverage or coverages. You will
receive a unique coverage code for each new region you are adding. The coverage
code is only applicable to the ECD Disc 1 you have available (preferably the most
recent). When you call Customer Service, tell the representative which terminal chart
revision cycle you are using. The cycle number is recorded on the Electronic Chart
Data CD label in this format: 08-2005, representing the revision number (08), and
the year (2005). Regional codes change every two weeks, so a code for the wrong
cycle does not work.
To add new coverages from the ECDs:
1. Insert the current ECD Disc 1 before it expires.

43

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


2. Click Start > Run and type d:\setup.exe (where d: is the letter of the CDROM drive).
3. On the Coverages screen, select the I have additional Coverage Codes
check box and click Next. Setup displays the box to type additional codes.
4. Type any coverage codes you have and then click Apply.
5. At the end of the ECD Disc 1 installation, Setup stops and waits for ECD Disc
2. While the Insert Electronic Chart Data Disc 2 dialog box is on the screen:
A. Insert ECD Disc 2 and wait for Setup to continue.
B. Click Close Window if this window does not go away automatically.
6. Follow the installation prompts in ECD Disc 2.

Deactivating JeppView and FliteDeck


Because you may need to use FliteDeck on a notebook computer in addition to your
desktop computer, your license agreement permits this, as long as you are the only
person using the program(s). If more than one person needs to use the software, or
if you otherwise need additional site keys, you can purchase them by calling
Jeppesen Customer Service.
Notwithstanding the notebook computer exception to the single-computer license, if
you need to move FliteDeck or the NavSuite products from one computer to another,
you must first deactivate the program on the computer from which you are removing
it; otherwise you may not use it on the new computer.
After you have activated FliteDeck or the NavSuite Products on the maximum
number of computers, you can deactivate one of them and move it to a new
computer by following one of the methods below:

Uninstall the program, and choose Yes when the deactivation wizard asks if
you would like to deactivate JeppView or NavSuite. See Removing JeppView
and FliteDeck.

Locate and run the deactivate.exe program in the folder containing your
FliteDeck files. If you installed FliteDeck within the default folders, it can be
found in one of the following locations:

NOTE

C:\Program Files\Jeppesen\FliteDeck3 (Windows 2000, XP and


Vista)

C:\Jeppesen\FliteDeck3 (Windows 2000 and XP)

If you are using FliteDeck within the NavSuite, deactivating FliteDeck


also deactivates the other NavSuite products on the computer.

If the deactivation wizard presents a list of programs to deactivate, select FliteDeck


or NavSuite and follow the on-screen instructions:
1. Read the warning to ensure you really want to deactivate FliteDeck or
NavSuite. Select the check box and click Next.

44

Installation and Activation


2. Select how you want to deactivate FliteDeck or NavSuite (we strongly
recommend selecting the Automated method if you have an Internet
connection), and click Next. If you select Automated, FliteDeck deactivates
and a dialog box containing the deactivation information appears.
3. After your deactivation information has been displayed, you can install
FliteDeck or NavSuite on the new hardware.
Although it no longer runs, FliteDeck or the NavSuite products are not uninstalled
from the old computer. You can now install the software on another computer and
follow the Activation Wizard. To reactivate the programs from a computer that
previously ran them, open the program and the Activation Wizard runs again. If you
do not plan to reactivate, you can uninstall the programs to save disk space.
Be sure to keep a copy of your serial number and site keys for each computer in case
your hard drive fails or your computer fails and you have to replace it.

NOTE

If you try to reactivate FliteDeck or NavSuite on this machine after


activating them on another computer, or activate the products on a
fifth machine without deactivating one site key, you will receive a
message from the server that your site key limit has been exceeded.
To purchase and activate additional installation of FliteDeck or
NavSuite, please contact Jeppesen's Customer Service.

If FliteDeck is inaccessible, such as from a hard disk crash, contact a Technical


Support Representative by phone or email for assistance.

Keeping Your Programs Up-to-Date


Your JeppView service includes a one-year subscription to electronic updates for
JeppView and FliteDeck, Jeppesen terminal charts, enroute data and text
information. Terminal charts and Airway Manual text update every 14 days; enroute
data updates every 28 days. See
Jeppesen provides a 60-day grace period in which to update your Electronic Chart
Data. After the grace period, JeppView and FliteDeck no longer display charts.

IMPORTANT

The 60-day grace period allows continued access when you are
away from your home base and cannot update by Internet or
Electronic Chart Data CD. Charts should be used within the 60day grace period only with great caution. You must ensure that
you are flying with current flight information and comply with
all FARs regarding preflight planning and required or
recommended flight information. Jeppesen recommends that
you use the Internet to update your chart data when you do not
have access to the latest CD.

If you are interested in receiving CD updates by mail, please contact a Jeppesen


Customer Service Representative for information and pricing.

Updating from the Internet


FliteDeck provides the ability to update your terminal chart data, enroute chart data,
Electronic Text Pages, and program electronically through an Internet connection.
Check your current version number and data effective dates by opening the FliteDeck
Setup program and reviewing the information in the Configuration tab. It contains
program version and information about your data (effective dates, coverage area,
expiration dates, and cycle/disk number). You may want to check to see if your data
is still current before checking for updates, however, it is not necessary. Items only
appear in the update list if there are updates for the data on your hard drive. In
order to obtain Internet updates, access to TCP/IP port 1984 is needed.

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

NOTE

If you are interested in receiving ECD Disc 1 and 2 updates in the mail,
please contact a Jeppesen Customer Service Representative for
information and pricing.

The UpdatePack
You might prefer to update your entire subscription only on your desktop PC, and
then transfer the updated information to your in-cockpit computer using a USB
memory device. This is the purpose of the UpdatePack. It gives customers with
multiple machines an easy way to copy Jeppesen programs and data from one
machine to another. Before creating an UpdatePack, read through the limitations to
avoid complications:

You can save an UpdatePack file anywhere; however, avoid keeping old
UpdatePacks anywhere in the c:\Jeppesen folder. Any existing UpdatePacks
that reside in this folder roll into your new UpdatePack, unnecessarily
increasing the file size.

The serial numbers of the Jeppesen software on the origin and target
machines must match. Otherwise, the UpdatePacks will not transfer data. In
the case of different coverages, the UpdatePacks still work.

UpdatePacks work with the following software versions or later: FliteStar/Map


v9.0, JeppView v3.0, and FliteDeck v3.0.

Creating an UpdatePack
1. Click Start > Programs > Jeppesen > Create UpdatePack.
2. Select the items to add to the UpdatePack. The disk space requirements
appear in the bottom of the window. If the size for "selected products" seems
over-large, check for previously saved Updatepacks in the directory. Delete
any that exist and re-save the current data.

52

Keeping Your Programs Up-to-Date

3. Type the Output filename for UpdatePack, including the drive letter if you
specify to save to removable media (example: f:\cycle0xYYUpdatePack),
or click Browse and find the drive and folder in which to save the
UpdatePack.
4. Click Create.

Updating the Target Computer


To update the data on another computer:
1. Insert the media (CD, USB drive, and so on) containing the UpdatePack
executable file (example: myUpdatePack.exe).
2. Open the CD or other media.

NOTE

Windows XP may offer to open the media for you. If it does not, open
My Computer and locate the media.

NOTE

Windows Vista requires administrative credentials if the UpdatePack


contains a JeppView program update. Administrative permissions are
not needed if the UpdatePack contains only navigational, terminal
chart, and text updates.

3. Double-click the UpdatePack executable (example: cycle1009UpdatePack.exe). The UpdatePack dialog box appears with the following
tabs:

53

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Welcome tab Displays the status of the data on the target


computer, compared to the data in the UpdatePack.

This UpdatePack tab Displays the contents of the UpdatePack file


with the update cycle.

This Computer tab Displays information about the Jeppesen


programs on the target computer, and which update cycle is installed.

Problems tab Only appears if problems exist with the UpdatePack,


and states the problem.

4. To update the target computer, click Update.

Updating Terminal Charts


Electronically updating terminal charts follows the same rules as updating terminal
charts with a paper subscription. When you receive a CD in the mail or download an
update from the Internet, the charts with that update are effective immediately upon
receipt.
As with the paper charts, there are a few exceptions where a chart becomes effective
after the chart cycle effective date. In this case, you should continue to use the
previous chart until the new chart's effective date. For more information about
terminal chart changes and how they are displayed in FliteDeck, see Terminal Charts
with Revisions. A terminal chart availability schedule is also available at Update Cycle
Dates.
To add a coverage area, contact a Jeppesen Customer Service Representative.

The FliteDeck Setup Program


The FliteDeck installation includes a separate Setup program that allows you to
customize FliteDecks configuration and options outside the FliteDeck program.

57

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


To open the FliteDeck Setup program, go to Start > Programs > Jeppesen >
JeppView FliteDeck3 > FliteDeck3 Setup.
The Setup program also provides a Setup Wizard to help you set your preferences.
Some pages and options may be hidden or displayed, depending on how you plan to
use FliteDeck. For instance, if you configure FliteDeck for use without a GPS unit
connected, elements that use GPS input are hidden, such as the Emergency page
and flight navigation information (Supplemental Track Indicator, Flight Information
Blocks).

Within the Setup program, you can select which RoutePacks to display in FliteDeck,
so you are not inundated with RoutePacks not applicable to the current flight. You
can also select which FliteDeck features you want available during flight. Hiding the
features you do not need makes the program simpler to use.
You can also customize the in-cockpit interface for your computer to specify whether
you have a virtual keyboard, touch screen, pointer device, etc. Each configuration
style and size uses the available screen dimensions with pages, components, and
options that you specify. Selecting a different configuration may change the look of
your FliteDeck program.
For more information, see FliteDeck Setup.

Working with RoutePacks


58

FliteDeck Basics
FliteDeck exchanges data with other Jeppesen applications using a file called a
RoutePack. You can save RoutePack files to flash or USB memory, email them, or
otherwise move them to other computers.
Think of a RoutePack as a briefcase containing flight information for a complete trip.
A RoutePack can include one or more routes, airports, terminal charts, waypoints
along the route, and all airports associated with it. You can also use a RoutePack
simply to store a list of favorite airports and charts.
You can plan a flight using FliteStar, JeppView, or JetPlanner, save your work to a
RoutePack, and open the RoutePack in FliteDeck. If you are planning a flight on the
same computer as you use FliteDeck, ensure that the Setup program Routes tab lists
the RoutePack file, and open the FliteDeck program. If you plan routes on a different
computer than you fly with, copy the RoutePack file onto a portable storage device
(compact flash card, memory stick), and transfer the RoutePack to the flight
computer.
For more information, view Routes and RoutePacks.

Using FliteDeck Without a RoutePack


You do not have to plan a flight to use FliteDeck. You can use FliteDeck for terminal
chart viewing and the moving map capabilities. FliteDeck provides a Clipboard
feature where you can store all the charts needed for a flight and quickly navigate to
them in the Terminal page.
You can also connect your GPS and use the moving map features available in
FliteDeck. When FliteDeck receives positional information, an aircraft symbol appears
on the enroute and terminal chart pages to increase your situational awareness.
Even when a route is not available, if you are receiving GPS information, you can still
do the following:

Select a navaid on the enroute chart and use the direct-to capabilities.

Find terminal charts for nearby airports.

Use the navigational information on the Enroute Nav page, such as the
nearest VOR, nearest Center, and nearest Flight Service Station (FSS).

When a GPS is not connected or the GPS simulator is not used, certain pages that
require positional information are disabled (see GPS Tab).

Viewing Only Terminal Charts


If you use FliteDeck only for terminal chart viewing, then the Jeppesen Terminal
Chart Viewer is the best display style, or "configuration", to use.
The Terminal Chart Viewer is designed for quick selection and viewing of IFR Airway
and VFR Manual (Bottlang) terminal charts. Only airway manual terminal charts,
airport information, and text pages are visible in this configuration. You assign
airports to a clipboard, then select the charts you want to view in the clipboard.
The Terminal Chart Viewer is best viewed in the portrait screen orientation.

77

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

NOTE

Select the GPS manufacturer from the list on the left side of the
window. If your manufacturer does not appear in the list, select
Generic.

Select your model from the list on the right. If you selected Generic
for the manufacturer, check your GPS manual for the type of NMEA
data it sends.

The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) standard is the


protocol most handheld GPS receivers use to transmit data.

If you are using a USB-type GPS, or any type of PC-card GPS, be sure to install the
software that came with that GPS before using it with FliteDeck. Use the testing
features to help locate the COM port to which it is connected.

Select COM Port


From the drop-down menu, select the COM Port your GPS connects to. If youre not
sure, try different ports with your GPS operating and see which one works.

You can also use the Windows Control panel System information to locate
your ports. The procedure varies depending on your operating system.

If the COM Port is not available, type it directly into the COM Port box using
the format "COM#". Do not place a space between the word COM, and the
COM Port number.

Override BAUD rate


If your GPS is working with FliteDeck, leave this setting alone.
If the baud rate of your GPS output is other than the default, select the Override
BAUD rate check box, and then select the appropriate baud rate from the drop
down menu or enter a BAUD rate. Consult your GPS manual for this information.

Testing Your GPS Connection


After you have selected the GPS manufacturer and model, use the testing features to
ensure the connection is detected. Before trying to test the GPS connection, ensure
the GPS is connected to your computer and turned on.

78

Click Test Com and Baud to test for a GPS connection on the selected COM
port and baud rate.

Click Verify Com to check all common baud rates with the selected COM
port.

Click Find GPS to search all COM ports and common baud rates to find the
connected GPS. The Find GPS test also selects the GPS manufacturer and
model if a GPS is detected.

FliteDeck Setup

NOTE

The GPS connection tests do not work while FliteDeck is running.

Bluetooth GPS Support


FliteDeck does not display Bluetooth GPS models in the Setup Program because they
create virtual COM ports on the computer. A virtual COM port causes the USB device
to appear as an additional COM port available to your computer.
Bluetooth GPS units must be seen by the operating system exactly like a serial GPS.
The Bluetooth adapter can be internal (as in a laptop) or external through a USB
port. Your computer must first have all the Bluetooth drivers installed to use
Bluetooth GPS units. Since Bluetooth drivers create a virtual COM port every time
they are enabled, the virtual COM ports might change whenever the computer is
restarted. If this occurs, you will need to run the GPS setup to re-detect the GPS
again.

NOTE

The following instructions were tested using Microsoft Windows XP.

To help FliteDeck recognize your Bluetooth device:

Install your Bluetooth drivers


Normally the drivers are supplied on a CD with your Bluetooth hardware. Windows
XP Service Pack 2 also comes with Bluetooth drivers that can be used with some
plug-and-play Bluetooth hardware.
1. Follow the device's user documentation to enable the Bluetooth connection on
your computer. Make sure the GPS is powered on, and your computer is
recognizing the GPS before continuing. One way to determine if your GPS is
connected with your computer is to look in the Windows notification area
where you should see a Bluetooth icon. The Bluetooth icon provides at-aglance feedback about the Bluetooth status.
Connected
Enabled
Disconnected
2. Right-click the Bluetooth icon in the Windows notification area and choose
Explore My Bluetooth Places.
3. In the My Bluetooth Places dialog box, click View > Tiles.

To show all the saved routes in FliteDeck click Check All.

To hide a RoutePack so FliteDeck does not load or display it, clear the check
box next to the name of the RoutePack. RoutePacks hidden from FliteDeck are
also hidden from other RoutePack-compatible programs.

To hide all the saved routes, click UnCheck All.

NOTE

90

RoutePack files use the .rpk extension. When you hide a RoutePack file in
the FliteDeck Setup program, or by deleting it in FliteDeck, the extension

FliteDeck Setup

changes to .rp~.
In Windows 2000 and XP, the default RoutePack working directory is the
[root]\Jeppesen\Common\RoutePack folder (under the Jeppesen folder where your
programs are installed).
For Windows Vista, the default location is
[root]:\Users\[User Profile]\Jeppesen\Common\RoutePack.
Change the RoutePack directory by clicking Browse and then navigating to the new
drive and folder.
To delete a RoutePack file permanently, navigate to the folder in Windows Explorer
and delete the file.

TIP

If you notice FliteDeck's performance slowing down, you may want to


create a separate RoutePack directory containing only the RoutePacks
used during flight. Having a separate directory limits the number of routes
FliteDeck must manage in the program, and may increase performance.

Route Planning Options


Automatically insert waypoint when route list is clicked This check box
currently does not do anything. This function is always on. Check the README file for
the latest information.
Whenever there is a waypoint in the Enter Waypoint text box, clicking in the Route
Waypoint list inserts the new waypoint in front of where you click. Because it is easy
to inadvertently insert a waypoint in this manner, FliteDeck always asks for
confirmation regardless of the setting on the Confirm Route Changes option.
Confirm route changes If this option is selected, clicking the Execute button is
a required step to complete any change to a route. This allows you to examine the
changed route before accepting the change. Clear this box to save one step in
editing a route.

IMPORTANT

It is easy to unintentionally delete waypoints if this option is not


selected. It is recommended that you become comfortable editing
routes before clearing this option.

Allow rubberband replanning To disable rubberband replanning, clear the


Allow Rubberband> Replanning check box. If you have a pointing device, the
rubberband method is an easy way to edit a route in FliteDeck (see Rubberband
Editing). If you are using a pen tablet device, you must be able to point to the route
and perform a drag action as you could with a mouse. Also, it may not be feasible to
use rubberband replanning during flight, especially in turbulence.
Include all intersections Check this option when you want all the intersections
along the airways included in your route waypoint list. Use either of the following
formats to trigger this option:
91

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


DEPARTURE LOW DESTINATION - routes along low airways. Example: KDEN

96

FliteDeck Principles
Since you can use FliteDeck on a variety of computers, the program is highly
configured through the FliteDeck Setup program (see FliteDeck Setup).
You may have a keyboard available to operate FliteDeck or you may use a mouse to
click on screen buttons, windows, and components. On touch screen or pen tablet
PCs, you tap or touch the screen instead of clicking with a mouse. Throughout this
guide, the word click means the same as tap, or touch. Similarly, point and drag
refer to equivalent actions performed with a mouse, pen, or touch screen.

Pages and Components


The FliteDeck interface consists of pages and components. A page is like a tab in
your Airway Manual. Pages display information pertinent to a particular phase of
flight, such as route planning, terminal chart viewing, or enroute navigation.
A component is a sub-window within a page. It can be a large portion of the page
(such as a terminal chart), or a small box (latitude/longitude information). It can
also be a button that controls some part of the program (zoom buttons).

Using Pages
In the FliteDeck Setup program, you choose which pages to display in the program,
from two pages in the Chart Viewer to six with GPS input. Each page has a
corresponding button. In the EFB-style configuration the buttons are ranged across
the top. In the standard notebook computer style configuration they run in tab
format down the left side:

97

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

With a mouse or touch screen, click the tab or button for the page you want. With a
keyboard, press the PAGE DOWN and PAGE UP keys to move between pages.

Using Components
The active component in a page is highlighted by a colored border. In a page with
multiple components, use mouse clicks and keyboard commands to select the active
component by clicking inside it or pressing TAB (SHIFT+TAB to move back) until it is
highlighted.

When a component is active, press ENTER to perform the same action as clicking on
it. Other actions may be available, such as zooming in and out on a chart.
If you use a mouse or pointing device, just click the buttons on a page to perform
the button actions. Clicking on information blocks, such as those on the Enroute Nav
page, normally toggles between different types of information available in that block.
98

FliteDeck Principles
Keyboard users can also use the function keys (F1, F2...) that are mapped to buttons
and boxes. The setup program allows you to display or hide function key labels. You
might choose to hide the labels to make the boxes less cluttered. The function keys
still work when the labels are hidden, and you can use them if you can remember
which buttons or components they map to.
When the text on a button is grayed out, it means that button is inactive. For
example, in the Plan page, clearing the Enter Waypoint text box grays out the first
four buttons down the right side of the page, since there is no waypoint on which to
perform these actions.

Routes and RoutePacks


While you can create simple routes within FliteDeck, you may prefer the more
sophisticated flight planning capabilities of other Jeppesen applications, such as
FliteStar, JetPlanner, or JeppView. You can use the flight plans from these programs
within FliteDeck. Jeppesen programs exchange data using a file called a RoutePack.
You can save RoutePack files to flash or USB media, email them, and otherwise
move them between computers.
You can plan a flight using FliteStar, JetPlanner, or JeppView and then save your
work to a RoutePack. If you plan a flight on the same computer as FliteDeck, open
the FliteDeck program and the RoutePack will be there. If you plan on a different
computer than you fly with:
1. Copy the file onto a USB thumb drive or other media storage.
2. Copy the RoutePack file to your FliteDeck computer.

NOTE

What is the difference between JeppView and FliteStar? JeppView is the


ground-based companion program to FliteDeck. JeppView gives you the
power to update, sort, and print your Jeppesen terminal charts in
customized formats to meet your specific needs. FliteStar is a separate,
comprehensive flight planner that integrates with JeppView and FliteDeck.

Transferring your RoutePack to the FliteDeck Computer


Assume you have created a route in FliteStar or JeppView from Jeffco (KBJC) to
Pueblo (KPUB) Colorado and saved it with the default filename and location:
C:\Jeppesen\Common\RoutePack\KBJC_to_KPUB.rpk
Now, you would like to use this route on a pen tablet computer running FliteDeck.
1. Put removable media, such as a flash card or USB drive, in the computer with
JeppView or FliteStar.
2. Click My Computer and choose Explore.

99

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

NOTE

If you are comfortable moving files between computers, use whatever


procedure works best for you.

3. Locate the C:\Jeppesen\Common\RoutePack folder.

NOTE

If you are using FliteDeck with Microsoft Windows Vista, the default
RoutePack location is C:\Users\[User
Profile]\Jeppesen\Common\RoutePack.

4. Right-click the KBJC_to_KPUB.rpk file and choose Send To.


5. Choose the disk to send the file to.

NOTE

A 64MB USB thumb drive has plenty of room for multiple RoutePacks with
charts.

6. Move your thumb drive or other media to the computer that will be used to
run FliteDeck.
7. On that computer, navigate to the media. If Windows XP offers some options
when you insert the disk, click Open folder to view files using Windows
Explorer. Otherwise, click My Computer and choose Explore.

8. Right-click the KBJC_to_KPUB.rpk file and choose Copy.


9. Go to the C:\Jeppesen\Common\RoutePack folder on the FliteDeck computer.

NOTE

100

If you are using FliteDeck with Microsoft Windows Vista, the default
RoutePack location is C:\Users\[User
Profile]\Jeppesen\Common\RoutePack.

FliteDeck Principles

10. Right-click in a blank area in the file list and choose Paste.
You should now see the RoutePack from your flight planning computer (the desktop
PC running FliteStar or JeppView) in the folder of the computer on which you are
going to run FliteDeck. If you are using a different location to save your RoutePacks
other than the default, you need to change the RoutePack location in the FliteDeck
Setup program Routes tab.

Learning FliteDeck with the GPS Simulator Trainer


You can use the FliteDeck GPS simulator trainer to emulate GPS position data input
for testing and practice. When you enable the GPS simulator in the FliteDeck Setup
Program, a GPS Sim Trainer controller floats over the FliteDeck program.

Changing the Simulator Status


To turn the simulator on or off, click Sim on the GPS Sim Trainer, or press ENTER
when the GPS Sim Trainer is active.

When the simulator is Off, the aircraft symbol on the enroute chart and
within the Profile View displays in red, simulating a GPS not sending valid
position information to FliteDeck.

When the simulator is On, the aircraft symbol displayed on the enroute chart
uses your direct input to simulate heading, speed, vertical speed and altitude.
101

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

When the simulator is in Auto, FliteDeck simulates flight along an active or


direct-to route, automatically adjusting the heading, speed, vertical speed,
and altitude. If a route is not selected, the autopilot acts the same as in the
On position, and needs your direct input. You may have to initially set the
active waypoint (see Setting the Active Waypoint) on the Plan page to start
the auto-pilot on your active route.
When the active route is planned in FliteDeck or JeppView, the autopilot uses a
generic set of altitude and speed attributes. If the route is planned in FliteStar,
the aircraft model attributes are saved within the RoutePack and used in the
Auto-pilot mode.

The general speed attribute is 100 knots (or equivalent) and can
increase over terrain. Overriding the speed while using the auto-pilot
mode shuts off the auto-throttle function in which it needs to be
manually managed.

The general climb vertical speed attribute is 1000-feet per minute, and
the descent vertical speed is 500-feet per minute. Overriding the
vertical speed or altitude while using the auto-pilot mode shuts off the
altitude function. Thereafter, the altitude and vertical speed must be
managed manually.

If the aircraft is in auto-throttle mode, the aircraft will stop at the


destination. If the aircraft symbol does not come close enough to the
destination airport to automatically stop, the aircraft will continue
using the inbound heading.

If the altitude, speed, and vertical speed are manually changed, you
can place it back in auto-pilot by clicking Sim and cycling through Off
and On back to the Auto mode.

Controlling the GPS Simulator Trainer


To control the GPS Simulator:

Click the left or right arrow symbols next to Trk to change the course by one
degree, or press the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys.
Hold SHIFT while doing this to change the course in 10-degree
increments.

Hold CTRL while doing this to change the course in 0.1-degree


increments.

Click the minus (-) and plus (+) symbols next to GS to adjust the

100 feet, or press the DOWN ARROW or the UP ARROW key.

Hold SHIFT to change the altitude in 1,000-foot increments.

Hold CTRL to change the altitude in 10-foot increments.

Using GoTo
If you have a route loaded, FliteDeck normally sets the simulated aircraft location at
the departure airport. To place the aircraft symbol at a specific location, do the
following:
1. Place the simulator in the On mode.
2. Click the desired location on the chart. Notice the latitude and longitude,
designator for an airport, VOR, NDB, or intersection appears on the Status bar
and in the Sim Trainer GoTo block.
3. In the sim trainer control box, click GoTo to move the aircraft symbol to the
desired location.
You can also use the Waypoint List to move the aircraft symbol:
1. Go to the Plan page.
2. Click Clear Waypoint (CLR) to clear the Enter Waypoint text box.
3. Select a waypoint in the Route Waypoint list. FliteDeck marks that waypoint
with an asterisk (*).
4. In the GPS sim trainer control box, click GoTo.

IMPORTANT

When you are finished practicing with the GPS Simulator Trainer,
return to the FliteDeck Setup program, select the GPS tab, and
enable your actual GPS. See GPS Tab.

The GPS Status Indicator

103

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


If you are using FliteDeck with a GPS , you must set up your GPS unit to work with
your computer and with FliteDeck (see GPS Tab). The GPS Status Indicator tells you
whether FliteDeck is receiving a valid data stream from your GPS. The indicator is
located in the upper right corner of the screen in the Jeppesen EFB-style
configuration and on the status bar at the bottom of the screen in other
configurations. Here are its possible indications:

NO GPS DATA FliteDeck is receiving data from the GPS, but there is no
satellite data associated with it. The following is a list of possible causes of
this GPS status:

Broken wire on cable or a loose connection.

Wrong baud rate.

GPS driver is out of date. Contact the manufacturer for an updated


driver.

Check your connection and repeat the procedure for setting up your GPS.

GPS: NO POS This indication, with a yellow background, means your GPS
is properly hooked up to your computer and is communicating with FliteDeck,
but the GPS is not sending valid position information to FliteDeck. Make sure
your antenna is connected and positioned properly, or give the GPS receiver
more time to acquire a signal.

GPS: INVALID This status is due to a Receiver Autonomous Integrity


Monitor (RAIM) error. FliteDeck is receiving a signal from the GPS, but the
GPS's internal computation of your location is invalid.

GPS: SIM This indication, with a yellow background, means FliteDeck is


simulating its GPS position and cannot be used for real-time position
information.

GPS: 3D or GPS: 2D When the status bar is green, FliteDeck is receiving


valid position information. The GPS: 3D indication means it is also receiving
altitude information.

NOTE

The Aircraft Symbol and Range Ring turn red if FliteDeck is not receiving
any GPS position information.

NOTE

You must have a green GPS status indication in order to use FliteDeck for
real-time position information.

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Route Waypoint List


When a route is loaded, FliteDeck displays the Route Waypoint list in the Routes and
Waypoints block. This list contains the waypoints in your current route, plus the
following information:

The RoutePack and route name.

The Active
Waypoint the
waypoint to
which you are
navigating; the
next waypoint
to pass in your
route. It is
shown in [bold
and in square
brackets].

The Selected
Waypoint
marked with an
asterisk (*). The
waypoint on
which you can
perform an
action.

106

Plan Page
With each waypoint, FliteDeck displays:

The course to the waypoint.

The distance to the waypoint.

The cruise altitude/crossing altitude or field elevation.

SID/STAR or airway number (when applicable)

The cruise altitude for a given waypoint is the desired cruise altitude for the leg from
the previous waypoint to the given waypoint. The cruise altitude appears bold if you
manually set this altitude.
The crossing altitude for a given waypoint is the approximate altitude at which the
planned route is calculated to cross that waypoint (based on aircraft data from
FliteStar, if you are using a RoutePack from that program, or based on the
performance of a typical light general aviation aircraft. The crossing altitude appears
bold if you manually set this altitude.
At the departure and destination airports, the field elevation is displayed in place of
the crossing altitude.

NOTE

When GPS or simulator position information is available, FliteDeck


automatically scrolls the waypoint list to keep the active waypoint in the
second position.
Disable the auto-scroll by clicking a waypoint in the list, the "...more"
button at the top or bottom of the list, or the up/down keys. To restore
the auto-scroll, tab to another page.

The Chart Component


You can build routes using either the Chart or the Enter Waypoint text box. JeppView
FliteDecks chart, like a paper enroute chart, provides aeronautical information to
assist in planning and flying your route. On the Plan page, you can click waypoints
on the chart to create and edit routes visually. On the Enroute Nav and Emergency
pages, the chart provides situational awareness as you fly your planned route.

NOTE

The information about moving around the chart applies to the enroute
chart component on all other pages that display an enroute chart except
the Emergency page.

Move in and out on the chart by zooming, and horizontally and vertically by panning
or scrolling.
Use the same procedures to move around enroute and terminal charts. Movement on
a terminal chart is called scrolling, because the chart is a fixed size, similar to a
document in a word processing program. Movement on an enroute chart is called
panning. It differs from scrolling in that the chart is a more-or-less unlimited size.
This section contains the following topics:

Moving Around the Chart


Use these tools to move around the chart:

Press the PLUS SIGN (+) and the MINUS SIGN (-) keys or click the toolbar
Zoom buttons to zoom in and out on the chart.

The drag zoom method: With a mouse or pointing device, click and hold the
cursor at the top left of the area you want to zoom in on, then drag the
pointer down and to the right to outline it. When the zoom box fits your
interest area, let go of the mouse to zoom.

To pan with a mouse, hold the cursor near the edge of the chart window until
the pointer changes to an arrow. Then click to move a short distance in the
direction of the arrow, or press and hold the mouse button to move a longer
distance. There are eight chart panning arrows, one for each side and each
corner.

Click on a directional arrow or the ARROW keys to move the chart that
direction. Hold the mouse button down on the button to continue panning in
the same direction.

Aircraft Symbol

108

Plan Page
When position information is available, either from a GPS or the GPS simulator, a
green chevron symbol indicates the present position of your aircraft on the chart.
This symbol is also referred to as a "spotter".
Interpreting the Aircraft Symbol

When the symbol interior is filled green, this indicates that tracking is enabled
(for information on the different tracking modes, see Chart Tracking Mode). If
you pan the chart, tracking is disabled, and the aircraft symbol interior
becomes transparent.

NOTE

Click on the transparent aircraft symbol to re-enable tracking mode, or


click the TRACK Acft button located near the status bar of pages that
have a chart component.

The range ring appears if enabled in the FliteDeck Setup Program (see Range
Ring). The range ring shows the distance from the aircraft to the edge of the
ring ahead, as well as the time to get to the edge of the ring at your current
ground speed.

The FliteDeck Setup program also allows you to display a course projection
line. This is a gray line that extends forward from your aircraft. It shows you
where your present bearing will take you.

NOTE

The same aircraft symbol also appears on the Terminal page, but
without a range ring.

Suppressing the Aircraft Symbol


Use the Setup application to remove the own-ship aircraft symbol while receiving
GPS input.
In the Enroute Chart and Terminal Charts tabs, uncheck the Aircraft Symbol display
check boxes.
You may also want to suppress the range ring and course projection line in the
Enroute tab.

Current Position Indicator

109

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


When the aircraft position moves off the screen, or if you pan away from it, a green
arrow shows the direction and distance of the aircraft from edge of the chart. This
arrow is called the Current Position Indicator (CPI).
Click the CPI arrow to reposition the chart so that the aircraft is visible again. Using
this method automatically re-enables tracking mode, and the aircraft symbol is filled
(see Aircraft Symbol for additional information).

The CPI displays when the aircraft symbol is suppressed.

The Virtual Keyboard


If you are using a pen tablet PC without a keyboard, you may want to enable the
virtual keyboard in the FliteDeck Setup program.
Enable the Virtual Keyboard from the Interview Wizard in the FliteDeck Setup
program. This places a Virtual Keyboard button on the Plan and Terminal pages.

The Jeppesen EFB-style Virtual Keyboard button is in the upper right corner of
the page.

The Default-style Virtual Keyboard button is at the right side of the Enter
Waypoint text box.

To use the virtual keyboard:


1. Click the Virtual Keyboard.
2. Click the letters and numbers for entry as if using a physical keyboard.
3. To close the virtual keyboard, click the X button in the top right corner.

NOTE

Some operating systems, such as Windows XP Tablet Edition, provide their


own virtual keyboards. In that case, you may not need the FliteDeck
virtual keyboard.

You can copy and paste from a text document into the Virtual Keyboard using the
standard shortcut keys CTRL+C or CTRL+X and CTRL+V.

Plan Page

The Enter Waypoint Text Box


Use the Enter Waypoint text box to create or change a route. You can type the
name, city, identifier, latitude/longitude, or distance and bearing from a VOR or NDB.

Find airports, navaids, and waypoints by:

Entering a Database Waypoint

Entering a Waypoint by Latitude/Longitude

Entering Bearing and Distance from another Waypoint

The Enter Waypoint Text Box can also be used to access Airport Information.

Entering a Database Waypoint


To enter a waypoint in the Enter Waypoint text box:
1. Type the waypoint name, identifier, or city name in the Enter Waypoint text
box.
If the name you are looking for has more than one word (e.g.Colorado
Springs), put it in quotation marks. Otherwise, the program identifies the two
words as multiple waypoints (see Creating a Route Using the Quick Plan
Method).
The Select Waypoint list opens with all the matches for the entry. When you
search for an airport name that begins with a frequently used word, such as
"San" or "New", place it in quotation marks and add a space after the word.
For example, use "SAN " rather than "SAN".

TIP

If you are using a pointing device, you can also click or touch the navaid on
the enroute chart, and the Enter Waypoint text box automatically enters
the information. If it did not enter what you wanted, zoom in closer and try
again.

2. FliteDeck displays the most likely match for that waypoint to the right of the
Enter Waypoint text box.

If the message No Waypoint appears, it means there is not a match


for the entry in your data coverage.

111

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

If the Select Waypoint button displays on the right side of the


screen, it means FliteDeck has found more than one match for the
entry. Press ENTER or click Select Waypoint to see a list of matches.

The Routes and Waypoints block in the upper left corner of the screen shows the
search results that match the entry.

Select the waypoint you want by doing one of the following:

Click the waypoint.

Press the function key (F1, F2, and so on.) for the waypoint.

Use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to select the desired waypoint, and then
press ENTER.

Perform the desired action on the waypoint (direct to, insert, append) using
the buttons on the right side of the Plan page.

Tips

If the chosen waypoint to the right of the Enter Waypoint text box is not the
one you want, press ENTER, or click Select Waypoint to choose from a list.

If the chosen waypoint is the one you want, use the waypoint buttons to
immediately insert or perform other actions with that waypoint.

To abandon entering a waypoint click Cancel (ESC).

FliteDeck uses these rules to pick which waypoint displays in the scratchpad:

Exact matches have top priority.

Number of characters entered and identifier length. For example, NDB


identifiers are usually two characters, so an exact-match NDB is picked for a
two-character entry. VORs are generally three characters, so an exact-match
VOR is picked for a three-character entry. The same applies for airports and

112

Plan Page
four-character entries, and for intersections and five-character entries. Entries
for lat/lon points must be six or more characters to be recognized.
o

City and airport names get lower priority than identifiers.

If position information is available, proximity to current position or a route


waypoint moves a waypoint up the list.

Entering a Waypoint by Latitude/Longitude


You can enter a waypoint that is not in the Jeppesen database by typing in a latitude
and longitude. Enter degrees, minutes, and decimal minutes as shown in the
following format:
Format = Nddmm.hhWdddmm.hh

N = North (N) or South (S).

E = West (W) or East (E).

dd and ddd = degrees. Pad with leading zeros to make two latitude or three
longitude digits (see below for examples).
o N45W122 North 45 degrees, West 122 degrees.
o S05E007 South 5 degrees, East 7 degrees. You must use leading zeros if
latitude degrees are only one digit, or longitude is less than three digits.

mm = minutes. Optional, but if you use it, pad with zeros to make two digits.
o N4504W12206 North 45 degrees, 4 minutes. West 122 degrees, 6 minutes.

hh = Tenths or hundredths of minutes. Optional. Enter one digit for tenths or


two digits for hundredths.
o S4504.2E02206.5 South 45 degrees, 4.2 minutes, East 22 degrees, 6.5
minutes.
o S4504.23E02206.63 South 45 degrees, 4.23 minutes, East 22 degrees,
6.63 minutes.

If you are using a pointing device, you can also click/touch on the enroute
chart and the Enter Waypoint text box automatically displays the
information. If it did not show the point you wanted, zoom in closer and
try again.

If the notation [No Waypoint] appears instead of the waypoint icon and WP X with
the lat/lon, check that the number of digits is correct for the degrees and minutes.

Entering Bearing and Distance from Another Waypoint


You can enter a waypoint using a bearing and distance from a VOR, NDB, airport or
intersection. Enter the waypoint identifier, followed by the radial (bearing) and
distance, in the following format:
Format = nnn/rrr/ddd

113

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

nnn = waypoint identifier

rrr = radial

ddd = distance

Examples:

UBG/110/10 = Newburg VOR, 110-degree radial, 10 nm.

PDX/160/20 = Portland VOR, 160-degree radial, 20 nm.

In the second example, PDX matches both Portland (Oregon) International Airport
and Portland VOR. When an identifier matches more than one waypoint, click the
Choose Waypoint button to select which you would like to use. See Entering a
Database Waypoint for a similar procedure.

TIP

If you are using a pointing device, you can also click/touch on the enroute
chart and the Enter Waypoint text box automatically enters the
information. If it did not enter what you wanted, zoom in closer and try
again.

Viewing Airport Information


You can view general airport information for both IFR and VFR airports (runway
information, communication and navigation frequencies) by clicking the Info:
[Airport] button on the Plan page, Terminal page, Enroute Nav page and Enroute
Map page. If you have a connection to XM weather, additional weather information
also displays, such as TFRs, METARs, Terminal Area Forecasts and City Forecasts
(see Weather for additional information).
To view the airport information:

Creating a Route Using Plain Language Routing


If you know the identifiers of all the waypoints you want in your trip, you can create
a route in a just a couple of steps:
1. On the Plan page, click Routes (F12) and then New Route (F8).
2. Clear any text from the Enter Waypoint text box.
3. Type all the waypoint identifiers into the Enter Waypoint text box separated
by a space. Use any of the following auto-routing methods:

116

Direct Routing To create a direct route or specify direct routing


from one waypoint to another, enter the waypoints in order separated
by a space. If you are accustomed to entering specific terminology
between each waypoint to designate a direct route, you can enter
DCT, GPS or LORAN between the waypoints. In the example below,
the route could have been entered as KPDX DCT LKV LOW KLAS
VNA AMBRR AMBRR.BLH4 KPHX. Direct routes follow the shortest
path from one waypoint to another with no intermediate stops. For
direct routing, ensure your altitude clearances are appropriate by
viewing the Profile View in the Enroute Nav page (see Setting the
Altitude Along the Route and Profile View for additional information).

Plan Page

In cases where an identifier refers to more than a single navaid,


you can use waypoint codes to specify an airport, VOR, and so
on:

VOR, NDB, and airport routing Entering VNA between two


waypoints generates a route with VORs, NDBs, and airports as
navigation points. For VNA routing, ensure your altitude clearances are
appropriate by viewing the Profile View in the Enroute Nav page (see
Setting the Altitude Along the Route and Profile View for additional
information).

Maximum leg length After specifying VNA or any of the direct


routing key words in the route line, you can enter an optional
maximum leg length between waypoints. For example, flying a route
117

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


from one airport to another using VNA routing with a maximum leg
length of 75 miles, your entry into the Enter Waypoint text box may
look similar to KOGD VNA 75 KAMA.

High and low altitude airway routing Entering LOW or HIGH


between waypoints auto-routes through the high or low altitude airway
network (see Using Low Airways and High Airways for additional
information). When using HIGH or LOW, ensure that there is an entry
waypoint and an exit waypoint. Entry and exit waypoints can be the
departure and destination airport, VORs, and enroute airspace fixes
connected to an airway. When routing through the high and low
network, the altitude on the route is set higher than the minimum
altitude required for obstacle and terrain clearance.
Route with LOW and HIGH to "Include all intersections" when this option
is checked in the Setup Routes tab.

Maximum/ Minimum Enroute IFR Altitude (MEA) After


specifying LOW or HIGH in the route line, you can enter an optional
maximum MEA where FliteDeck will not plan a route where the MEA is
higher than what you specified. For example, flying a route from one
airport to another using low airway routing with a maximum MEA of
FL190, your entry into the Enter Waypoint text box may look similar to
KPDX LOW FL190 KSLC.

Airway routing You can enter an airway route by using any two
waypoints that are part of the airway separated by the airway
designator (for example, V23 or J14). If the airway is not connected to
the specified waypoints, the route will not work. When using an airway
in your plain language routing, an entry and exit waypoint needs to be
specified.
For example, looking at Lamar Municipal Airport (KLAA), there are
several airways that can be used to travel to a destination. When
choosing an airway, you must first select a VOR/Airport/Airspace fix that
connects to the airway. Traveling to Meade Municipal (KMEJ), V10 is
chosen, but it does not travel to KMEJ, so another airway is needed.
Between the airways, a transition waypoint connecting the airways must
be specified. The entry into the Enter Waypoint text box may look
similar to KLAA LAA V10 GCK V17 FLACK KMEJ.

118

Plan Page

To show all the airway intersections in the route waypoint list, check the
Setup application Routes tab check box "Include all intersections", and
enter a contiguous sequence of entry points and airway numbers from
departure to destination. For example: KUAO V23 EUG V452 KLMT.
FliteDeck requires the connecting VOR or NDB and airway number for
each new airway. In this example, omitting EUG V452 returns only the
intersections along V23.

SIDS and STARS If a departure or destination airport has a


SID/STAR you would like to use, enter the procedure name using the
following formats:
o

For SIDs, the format is entered as departure name.transition.

For STARs, the format is entered as transition.arrival name.

FliteDeck can only route with pilot-nav SIDs and STARs. A pilot-nav procedure
is a specific sequence of waypoints and altitudes; vector procedure waypoints
and altitudes are variable, determined by ATC.
When planning a VNA, LOW, or HIGH airway route that ends with a STAR, you
must identify a transition waypoint. STAR transitions are usually named for the
first waypoint of the procedure. To enter or modify a procedure after the route
is created, see Adding SIDs and STARs to a Route.

NOTE

When selecting a procedure, verify with your terminal charts that


the procedure is still valid and has not been replaced or modified.
Navigational data is updated every 28 days and changes within
the associated 28 days may not occur until the next cycle.

4. Click Insert Waypoint (F8).


5. Where FliteDeck finds more than one match, select the waypoint you want to
use.
119

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

6. Click Execute (F7) to complete the route or Cancel (ESC) to abandon it.

2.
Error Checking
If FliteDeck does not recognize an identifier in the entry, the unrecognized identifier
highlights and flashes in the scratchpad, and the status bar shows an error, usually
"[identifier] could not be located. Please re-enter."

If you can see the error, simply re-enter the identifier correctly. As soon as you
begin typing, the highlighted portion of the entry is deleted and replaced with the

120

Plan Page
new input. If you're using a keyboard you can also hit DELETE or BACKSPACE to
remove the highlighted portion before re-entering.
If you are not sure of the correct identifier, there are two ways to continue:

Delete the incorrect portion of the entry and finish the route without the nav
aid.

Use the CLEAR WAYPOINT button or ESC key to delete the entire route
entry.

When the scratchpad is empty, you can search for the correct identifier. Enter the
part of the name or identifier you're sure about, and click the Select Waypoint
button, when it appears, to view the search results. Select the waypoint you want
and insert it in the route, or enter the route again.
Airway numbers are also highlighted if FliteDeck does not find valid connectors. If
you don't recognize the error, use the enroute chart view to locate and correct the
airway endpoints.
Notes on the Plain Language Routing Method

You can also use this method to insert a new segment into an existing route.
FliteDeck tries to place the new segment at the most geographically
appropriate location in the existing route. You can adjust the insertion point
with the Move Up and Move Down arrows.

FliteDeck intelligently handles new route segments that overlap the current
route. If the beginning and ending waypoints of the route segment match
waypoints in the current route, FliteDeck replaces all waypoints in the
segment of the current route with the newly entered segment. Otherwise,
FliteDeck does not remove waypoints from the existing route, and you may
need to manually delete some waypoints.

You can enter RNAV waypoints. See Entering a Waypoint by


Latitude/Longitude and Entering Bearing and Distance from another
Waypoint.

Using Low Airways and High Airways


If you would like to create a flight plan using low or high airways:
1. On the Plan page, click Routes (F12) and then New Route (F8).
2. Clear any text from the Enter Waypoint text box with the Clear Waypoint
button or ESC key.
3. Enter the departure airport followed by a space.
4. Enter LOW (for low airways) or HIGH (for high airways) followed by a space.
5. Enter the destination airport.
6. Click Insert Waypoint (F8).
FliteDeck creates a route from the departure airport to the destination airport using
the airway routing specified. All airway segment endpoints are automatically added
to the waypoint list and chart view.

121

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

To add all intersections on the airways to the waypoint list:


1. Open the Setup application and go to the Routes tab.
2. In the Route Planning Options box select Include all intersections and click
OK.
Create the route as above.

122

Plan Page

Adding Waypoints Using the Chart


See The Chart Component to review how to zoom and move around the chart.
To add waypoints to a route using the enroute chart:
1. Zoom and pan on the chart so you can clearly see the area where you want to
plan your route. Zoom in even further as needed so you can clearly see
individual waypoints.
2. Click any airport, navaid or area on the chart.
3. View the Enter Waypoint text box to validate that you selected what you
want.
4. Click Append Waypoint (F9).

123

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


Repeat this procedure, appending the rest of the waypoints to your route.

NOTE

In the Setup program Routes tab, the Confirm route changes option
lets you to examine your changes on the route list and chart before
committing to them. If you would prefer to skip the Execute step, run
the FliteDeck Setup program, click the Routes tab, and clear the Confirm
route changes check box.

Adding Waypoints by Typing Their Names


If you know the waypoint name or designator, you can enter it into the Enter
Waypoint Text box and add it to your route. See The Enter Waypoint Text Box to
review the procedures for entering waypoints.
1. Click Clear Waypoint (ESC) to clear any text in the Enter waypoint text
box.
2. Type in the name or identifier of any airport or navaid.

If FliteDeck correctly matches what you type (shown to the right of the
Enter waypoint text box), proceed to add the waypoint, step 3
below.

If FliteDeck does not correctly match what you type, click Select
Waypoint and select the waypoint you want from the Select Waypoint
list.

If FliteDeck indicates [No Waypoint], go back to Step 1 and try


entering the waypoint differently.

3. Click Append Waypoint (F9).


4. Repeat this procedure, appending the rest of the waypoints to your route.

Using the Active Route from your GPS


When connected to a GPS unit that outputs route information, FliteDeck
automatically uses the active route from the GPS receiver. This occurs if you have
entered a route into your GPS and made it active. If the GPS active route is not the
route you want to see in FliteDeck, click Routes and choose something else from the
Select Route list.

124

Plan Page

Use the following tips and information when connecting a GPS and using route data:

If you want to use the GPS receivers active route again, click Routes and
select Active GPS Route.

You cannot get route data from GPS units that do not have route planning
capability.

Any changes in the route or navigation state of the GPS (such as active
waypoint) are reflected in FliteDeck while the Active GPS Route is in use.

You cannot edit or otherwise control the Active GPS route from FliteDeck.
FliteDeck is merely viewing the information from your GPS. Use the controls
on the GPS to manipulate the route.

NOTE

Although FliteDeck is not designed to take over control (editing,


sequence hold, setting active waypoint) of the active GPS route,
there is a way to make a copy of this route that you can control
with FliteDeck. With the route selected, click Reverse Route.
This makes a reversed copy of the route. Click Reverse Route
again. This makes another copy of the route which is the same,
but separate from, the active GPS route.

Saving an Active GPS Route


You can save the active route from your GPS into the FliteDeck Daily RoutePack to
use another day. When loading the route on a future date, work with the route in
FliteDeck, not your GPS. You can edit the route, set the active waypoint, or
otherwise manipulate it in FliteDeck. To save a route from your GPS into FliteDeck:
1. Load an active route into your GPS.
2. Connect the GPS to FliteDeck.
3. Click Routes (F12).
4. Make sure the Active GPS Route is selected.

125

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


5. Click Save Route (F9).

IMPORTANT

You should save your GPS route before beginning any navigation
along the route. If you wait until during or after flight, you may not
get all of the waypoints in the route. Many GPS units output the
waypoints only from the unflown portion of the route.

box.
3. Click Append Waypoint (F9).
4. Click Execute (F7) to confirm your change or Cancel (ESC) to abandon it.

Inserting a Waypoint into your Route More Than Once


Use this procedure if you plan to overfly a given waypoint more than once. To insert
a waypoint into your route more than once:
1. Click Clear Waypoint (ESC) to clear any text from the Enter Waypoint text
box.
2. Click an existing waypoint in the Route Waypoint list. FliteDeck marks this
waypoint with an asterisk (*).
3. Click Insert Waypoint (F8) or Append Waypoint (F9).
4. If inserting, click the Move Up (F8) or Move Down (F9) to place the
waypoint where you want it in your route.
5. Click Execute (F7) to confirm your change, or Cancel (ESC) to abandon it.

Rubberband Editing
If your computer has a pointing device and you have enabled rubber-band editing in
the FliteDeck Setup you can use this powerful, easy way to edit your route on the
chart.
1. Drag or bend the route over a new waypoint:

To insert a new waypoint into the route, point to the route line the
middle of the segment near the new waypoint, press the mouse
button, and bend the route line over the new waypoint.

To move the route line from one waypoint to another, point to


the route line where it crosses the waypoint to be changed, and drag
the route line off that waypoint and on top of the new waypoint.

131

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

FliteDeck draws the proposed route on the chart with a green dashed line and
shows the proposed change to your route list.

If the new location is a waypoint in the database (airport, VOR, NDB,


intersection) the identifier for that waypoint appears in your route list.

If a new location is not a waypoint in the database, FliteDeck creates a


new waypoint at that location. These are labeled as WP1, WP2, and so
on in your route list.

2. Click Execute (F7) to confirm your change, or Cancel (ESC) to abandon it.

TIP

If you meant to drag the route over an airport, VOR, NDB, or intersection,
but missed and created a new waypoint, zoom in closer and try again.

Deleting a Waypoint

132

Plan Page
To delete a waypoint:
1. Click Clear Waypoint (ESC) to clear any text from the Enter Waypoint text
box.
2. Select the waypoint you want to delete. FliteDeck marks the waypoint with an
asterisk (*).
3. Click Delete Waypoint (F10). FliteDeck draws the route as it will appear
after the deletion with a dashed green line.
4. Click Execute (F7).
You can also delete a waypoint by typing the name of the waypoint to delete:
1. Press the TAB key to rest on the Enter Waypoint text box.
2. Type the name of the waypoint.
3. Click Delete Waypoint (F10).
4. Click Execute (F7).

NOTE

If you select a waypoint to delete that is part of a procedure, a button


displays, such as Delete SID, that allows you to delete the entire
procedure. The procedure name appears above the applicable waypoints
in the Route Waypoint list.

Deleting More Than One Waypoint


This feature is patterned after the multiple-waypoint delete functions in some flight
management systems. For example, assume you are deleting WUTSO and GFK VOR
from the route shown here:
1. If there is any text in the Enter waypoint text box, click Clear Waypoint
(ESC) to clear it.
2. Select the waypoint immediately before the first waypoint you want to delete,
that is, the last waypoint you want to keep. In this example, select KGAF,
Hutson Field Airport. FliteDeck marks it with an asterisk (*).
3. Select the last of the waypoints to delete. In this example, select GFK VOR.
4. The waypoints (WUTSO and GFK VOR) disappear from the Route Waypoint
list, and FliteDeck draws the proposed route change with a dashed green line.
5. Click Execute (F7) to confirm the deletion. The resulting portion of this route
goes direct from KGAF to PKD VOR.

IMPORTANT

If you have cleared Confirm Route Changes in the FliteDeck Setup


program, you could easily delete several waypoints when you
think you are just selecting a waypoint! That is why, when you are
not deleting multiple waypoints, you must clear any text out of
the Enter waypoint text box with the Clear Waypoint (ESC)
button prior to trying to select a waypoint.

133

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

TIP

If you accidentally delete data from a route, you may be able to recover
by exiting FliteDeck without saving the RoutePack.

Going Direct To a Waypoint


Direct To allows you to navigate directly to any waypoint or location, without clearing
your route from the Plan page. You can easily resume your planned route at any
time.
1. Click Clear Waypoint (ESC) to clear any text from the Enter Waypoint text
box.
2. Select a waypoint or location that you would like to navigate direct to:

Click a waypoint or location on the chart.

Type a waypoint name or location (latitude/longitude or


bearing/distance reference) into the Enter Waypoint text box.

3. Click Direct To (F7).

NOTE

The Direct To button is always labeled with the name of the selected
waypoint, or is labeled WP1, WP2 if you have selected a location other
than a named waypoint.

4. Go to the Enroute Nav page.

134

The active waypoint is now your Direct to waypoint.

Plan Page

FliteDeck displays a magenta line from your present position to the


Direct to waypoint.

The Supplemental Track Indicator (STI) and Flight Information blocks


(enroute nav page) guide you to the Direct to waypoint.

To go direct to a waypoint in your route, just select a waypoint from the Route
Waypoint list.

IMPORTANT

The Direct To button is only available if FliteDeck is receiving


a valid GPS position, or if the GPS simulator is on.

Notes about Direct to Operations:

Direct to operations are temporary.

The Direct to route is not displayed on the Plan page.

The existing route is not changed by a Direct to operation (unless it was a

1. Click Routes (F12). Available routes are those that have not been hidden in
the FliteDeck Setup program (see Routes Tab for more information).
See Transferring your RoutePack to the FliteDeck Computer for a procedure to move
RoutePacks from another computer.
The Routes and Waypoints block displays a list of the available routes. Five routes
are listed in this example:

135

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

NOTE

The first line is the name of the RoutePack that contains the route. In
this example, The first route displayed is in the RoutePack name New
Trip.

The second line contains the route name and total distance. The New
Trip RoutePack contains two routes: KBJC -> KPUB and Alternate 1.

The bottom right corner indicates an active or unsaved route.

When you save a route in FliteDeck, the naming convention is


"DailyYYMMDD", YY=last two digits of the year, MM=the month, and DD
the day that the RoutePack was created. You cannot add routes to a
RoutePack created on a previous day. You cannot rename RoutePacks
within FliteDeck; use JeppView or FliteStar.

2. Select the route you want by doing one of the following:

ENTER.

Pressing ENTER, F7, or clicking Select confirms the route selection.

Plan Page

Setting the Altitude Along the Route


The easiest way to set an altitude for your route is to create it in FliteStar. If creating
a route in FliteDeck, the altitude will be set to an appropriate VFR or IFR altitude.
The value is likely the minimum altitude at which you could fly the route and does
not guarantee terrain clearance. FliteDeck allows you to change the altitude for a
route one leg at a time. You can also mark a cleared-to altitude in the Profile view.
To manually set the altitude for the route one segment at a time:
1. Clear any text from the Enter Waypoint text box.
2. Type an appropriate altitude value into the box (8500, FL120). If typing a
flight level, do not put any spaces between FL and the number.

NOTE

Starting at 180, any 3-digit value is interpreted as a flight level (FL). To


set a value below 1,000 feet, begin with a 0, for example, to indicate 800
feet, enter 0800.

The button labels on the right change to actions for setting an altitude. With
the exception of the Cleared To button, these buttons act on a single route
segment at a time.

3. Select the waypoint to which you want the altitude change applied.

Cleared To marks your clearance altitude on the Profile view. The line
extends across the whole profile. If you later receive a clearance to a different
altitude, return to the Plan page and reset it.

137

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


In the Profile View, if the clearance altitude is higher than what is being
displayed, the clearance altitude displays in orange above the Profile View
altitude markers.

The Cruise Altitude button is labeled with two waypoints that define a
current route leg. It sets the cruise altitude between the previous waypoint
and the selected waypoint. Once the cruise altitude is manually changed, the
cruise altitude in the waypoint list appears in bold.

The Crossing Altitude button sets the altitude at which you will cross the
selected waypoint. Use this feature for a waypoint with a published minimum
crossing altitude (MCA). Once the crossing altitude is manually changed, the
crossing altitude in the waypoint list appears in bold. The Profile View also
displays a white marker along your route at the appropriate location.

Plan Page
4. Click the Next arrow (F11) to move to the next route segment.
5. Repeat steps 2-4 to set the altitude for the next route segment.
6. Use the Previous arrow (F10), if needed, to move to earlier route segments
and re-adjust their altitudes.
Notes About Setting Altitudes

Direct To legs do not show up in the waypoint list, but their altitudes can be
edited. Sequence through the route waypoints with the Previous and Next
arrows. On-route Direct-to waypoints are placed after the route segment that
shares the waypoint, and off-route Direct-to's will show up after the planned
destination. For Direct-to legs, nothing changes in the Route Waypoint list,
only the Change Altitude button text changes, and the status bar updates to
indicate that the active leg will be edited. Continue to click the Next and
Previous arrows to cycle back to the beginning or end of the route.

Crossing altitudes can be cleared by setting their altitude below the terrain at
that waypoint. In most cases, just setting the crossing altitude to 000 will
clear it. Cruise altitudes (leg desired altitudes) cannot be cleared. They can
only be changed.

To set the same altitude along a series of segments or waypoints:


1. Set the first altitude, and click the Next arrow.
2. Click the altitude set button again.
3. Continue clicking the Next arrow and setting the altitude to the end of the
waypoint series.
4. If you want to work backwards along the route, use the Previous arrow.

Setting the Active Waypoint


The active waypoint is the waypoint to which you are currently headed. An active
waypoint can be a waypoint along your route or any direct-to waypoint. FliteDeck
indicates bearing, distance, and desired track (DTK) to this waypoint.
When sequencing is on, FliteDeck normally chooses the active waypoint
automatically. As you pass over an active waypoint, the program sets the next
waypoint in the route as the active waypoint. Even if you dont fly directly over a
waypoint, FliteDeck recognizes that you have passed the active waypoint and
sequences to the next waypoint. For example, if an airway makes a sharp turn at a
VOR, you could cut the corner and miss the VOR by miles, and FliteDeck would still
auto-sequence to the next VOR soon after you pass the active waypoint.
There are times when you may need to set the active waypoint manually. Suppose
you are navigating from A to B to C, as in the figure.

139

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Before you get to B, ATC assigns you a vector to intercept the course from B to C. In
this case, you want to set C as your active waypoint.
To set a waypoint as your active waypoint:
1. Click Clear Waypoint (ESC) to clear any text from the Enter Waypoint text
box.
2. Select the waypoint in the Route Waypoint list that you want to make active.
FliteDeck marks this waypoint with an asterisk (*).
3. Click Set Active Waypoint.

Suspending Waypoint Sequencing Sequence Hold


There are times when you need to suspend FliteDecks automatic waypoint
sequencing:

Holding.

Overflying a single waypoint more than once during an approach procedure


(and you havent inserted the waypoint multiple times into your route).

Approaching the runway threshold during an instrument approach. Most


missed approach procedures require maneuvering (e.g. climbing straight
ahead to a certain altitude) prior to proceeding to the next waypoint.

The sequence button on the Plan page places the current status of sequencing on the
label.

When sequencing is on, the label reads Sequencing:ON.

When sequencing is off, the label reads Sequencing:OFF.

140

Plan Page

When sequencing is off, it suspends FliteDecks automatic waypoint sequencing.


To turn sequencing off:
1. Select the Plan page.
2. Click Sequencing:ON to change the status of sequencing.
The status bar momentarily confirms that you have engaged Sequence Hold:

The Sequencing:ON button label changes to Sequencing:OFF. Now FliteDeck will


not sequence to the next waypoint after you pass the active waypoint. You can tell
sequence hold is active because your distance to the active waypoint starts
increasing after waypoint passage and the bearing changes to a value opposite your
course. Its like crossing a VOR station and watching the TO/FROM flag on your VOR
flip to FROM.
To turn sequencing on:
1. If needed, set the active waypoint.
2. Click Sequencing:OFF to change the status of sequencing.

Saving a Route
To save a new or modified route:
1. Click Routes (F12).
The Routes and Waypoints block shows the Select Route list. The route you
were working on is selected and FliteDeck shows it as Unsaved.

2. Click Save Route (F9).


You can save any route in the Select Route list that is marked as Unsaved. Select the
route to be saved and click Save Route (F9).
When you exit FliteDeck, Windows asks you to save or reject this change to the
RoutePack file.

141

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Deleting a Route
To delete a route:
1. Click the Plan tab.
2. Click Routes.
3. In the Select Route list, select the route to be deleted.
4. Click Delete Route (F10).

IMPORTANT

FliteDeck does not ask you to confirm this deletion unless it is the
active route used in FliteDeck.

When you exit FliteDeck, Windows asks you to save or reject this change to the
RoutePack file.

Reversing a Route
To reverse a route:
1. Go to the Plan tab.
2. Select Routes.
3. In the Select Route list, select the route to be reversed.
4. Click Reverse Route (F11).
This creates a new, reversed route in a RoutePack labeled with the current date. The
original route is retained.

Adding SIDs and STARs to a Route


You can add pilot-nav SIDs and STARs to your FliteDeck route after entering a route
with a departure and destination. A pilot-nav SID, as opposed to a vector SID, is one
that has specific routes as part of the procedure. The SID/STAR menu is active only
when pilot-nav SIDs or STARs are available for the departure or arrival airports of
the active route.

NOTE

When selecting a procedure, verify with your terminal charts that the
procedure is still valid and has not been replaced or modified.
Navigational data is updated every 28 days and changes within the
associated 28 days may not occur until the next cycle.

To add a SID or a STAR:


1. Select the Plan page.
2. Loaded a route in which the departure or arrival airports have SIDs or STARs
available.
3. Click SID/STAR (F11).
142

Plan Page
4. Click Select SID (F7) or Select STAR (F8).

5. The Routes and Waypoints list in the upper left corner of the page changes to
the Select Procedure list. Select the SID or STAR you want and then select
the transition.

6. FliteDeck displays the proposed route in the Route Waypoint list and draws it
on the chart with a dashed green line.

143

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

7. If you are satisfied with the procedure and transition, click Execute (F7). If
not, click Cancel (ESC) and repeat steps 3 through 7 to select another
procedure.

Deleting a SID or STAR


To delete a SID or STAR:
1. Select any waypoint in the SID or STAR. The Delete button changes to
Delete SID or Delete STAR.
2. Click Delete SID or Delete STAR, or press F10.
Notes on Deleting SIDs and STARs:

Deleting any waypoint in a SID or STAR deletes the entire procedure.

An exception is when you have inserted waypoints in the middle of the


procedure; it then becomes just a list of route waypoints and is no longer
treated as a procedure.

NOTE

In cases where European VFR airports do not have assigned ICAO


identifiers, Jeppesen assigns identifiers in the format of the two-letter
country identifier followed by two numbers. The assigned airport
designator is not official and not to be used for official paperwork, such
as filing a flight plan. The easiest way to find airports of this nature is to
enter the airport or city name in the Enter Airport text box
(EK19=Hoven Airport in Denmark). The Jeppesen identifier will work if
you know it.

FliteDeck displays all airports matching what you have typed in the Select Airport
list.

VFR Airports are identified by having the airport identifier and name followed
by the word VFR APT.

IFR airports display only the identifier and airport name.

Click the airport you want, or use the ARROW keys to highlight it and then press
ENTER. You can also press the FUNCTION key for the airport, if it is one of the first
six that are labeled with function keys.

Choosing an Airport from the Enroute Chart


In the Terminal tab Airport Selection page, the Chosen button displays the airport
diagram for the last airport selected on the Plan page.
To select an airport from the enroute chart:

Approach Charts, SIDS, and STARS


The SIDS, STARS, and Approaches buttons are available only on IFR airports
offering these types of charts. For example, if there are no charted STARS for an
airport, the STARS button is grayed out. Click the button for the type of chart you
want. If you have a subscription to European VFR Bottlang charts, the Approaches
button contains VFR Approach Charts.

FliteDeck displays a list if there is more than one of that type of chart
available.

Once you select a chart, FliteDeck remembers it so you do not have to reselect the procedure from the list every time you return to it.

For example, if you select the Jeffco (KBJC) ILS 29R Approach, and
then select a SID, clicking Approaches (F5) takes you back to the ILS
29R Approach, without showing you the Select Approach list.

To bring up the Select Approach list and select a different approach,


click Approaches a second time.

The buttons that bring up other types of charts behave the same way.

NOTE

If you need to select a different airport chart, SID, STAR, or approach


chart than you see when initially clicking any of these buttons, be sure to
click the button a second time to bring up the appropriate select chart list.

Terminal Page

Working with Terminal Charts


Normally FliteDeck starts with an Airport (Runway) Chart for the selected airport, or
the last chart you were looking at if you've already viewed charts from that airport.

Displaying a Chart for the First Time


A displayed chart is any chart presented on the Terminal page. How FliteDeck is
configured when it is initially installed determines how the terminal chart is
presented. For example:

When the application's height is greater than the width (portrait), all terminal
charts display in single view with the full chart displayed.

When the application's width is greater than the height (landscape), terminal
charts display in split view. If the chart is geo-referenced, the plan view of the
chart displays in the upper component and the chart header displays in the
lower component. If the chart is not geo-referenced, the complete chart
displays in the upper and lower component.

When you change certain attributes to a displayed chart, when you open a new chart
it will also be displayed in the same format. For example, if you are in a portrait
configuration and change the display from single view to split view, the next chart
you open also displays in split view.
The one exception to this behavior is if charts are added to the Clipboard without
first being viewed. In this instance, the Clipboard charts use the current setting at
the time they are added.
The next time you open FliteDeck, it automatically defaults to the last view setting
used for the displayed chart and opens all new charts in that manner.

Charts with Revisions


Electronically updating terminal charts follows the same rules as updating terminal
charts with a paper subscription. When you receive a CD in the mail or download an
update from the Internet, the charts in that update are effective immediately upon
receipt. There are a few exceptions where Jeppesen issues a chart before the
effective date. FliteDeck uses your computer clock to determine when a chart
revises.
Terminal chart changes fall into one of two categories:

Changes effective immediately upon receipt of a CD or an available Internet


download Most chart changes fall into this category. When viewing an
airport's terminal charts in FliteDeck, the revision date for each chart displays
in the terminal chart list. The date may be a day or two in the future, but the
chart should be used as long as there is no indication that it is to be added or
replaced on a specific date.
The terminal charts listed in the image below were downloaded on 03 May
2006. The date specified for the charts - 05 May 2006 - is the revision date.
Because there is no indication that they are to be added on 05 May 2006, the
charts are effective upon receipt and appropriate for use during flight.
153

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

154

Changes effective mid-cycle on a specified date Jeppesen charts use an


effective date if a chart is issued before it can be used. In this situation,
continue to use the previous chart until the effective date. When viewing a list
of terminal charts, you will see the current chart and the future effective
chart.
o

Future effective charts display Add or Replace with the date it is to be


effective.

Current charts that will expire mid-cycle display Remove or Delete on


the change date (circled in red in the image below).

Terminal Page

After the change date, the old charts display Removed or Deleted
and the date after which they expired.

Also, when you view mid-cycle revision charts, the header displays both the revision
date and the effective date, as shown below. If there is no effective date, use the
chart upon receipt.

Comparing Charts
You can place the current chart and the revised chart on the Clipboard. Once the
charts are on the Clipboard, you can quickly compare them by using the Previous
Chart and Next Chart buttons. For additional information about the Clipboard, see
Using the Clipboard.
Viewing Revised Charts in the Clipboard
Before viewing a chart on the Clipboard, ensure that the charts are current for your
flight and have not or will not change mid-cycle. If there are charts within your
coverage that have a mid-cycle update, you will see the revision indicator in the
chart list.
Be careful to manage any clipboard charts with mid-cycle revisions:

Remove obsolete charts and add the revised charts to the Clipboard.
Obsolete charts are labeled Removed or Deleted if the date of
change has already taken place.

If you fly during or near the revision date, place both expiring and
new charts on the Clipboard for easy reference. This is most
important for pilots flying near the International Date Line.

TIP

155

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


The next time the charts are updated electronically, the charts labeled Removed or
Deleted are deleted from your database.

Things You Can Do When Viewing a Chart

With the chart shown full-screen, click inside the chart component to change
to the plan view.

To zoom in and out, click the zoom buttons, or press PLUS SIGN (+) and
MINUS SIGN (-).

Click Restore (press R) to return to the full chart or plan view of the selected
chart. If the chart is in split view, selecting Restore only affects the selected
component and does not rotate the chart.

If you are zoomed in very close, you can scroll the chart by clicking the
directional arrows, using the ARROW keys, or pointing near the edge or
corner of the screen and clicking.

Click and hold a directional arrow to continue scrolling.

156

Terminal Page

If the chart is turned the wrong way on your screen, click Rotate until it is
oriented correctly. Each time you click this button, FliteDeck rotates the chart
90 degrees clockwise.

Split View
With geo-referenced charts, you can split the single chart component into two
separate components. This enables you to more clearly see the required information
on a computer screen.

The upper component is the geo-referenced plan part of the chart. Only charts that
are drawn to scale can be geo-referenced calibrated so that FliteDeck can display
your position in this area. Approach charts and Airport (Runway) charts are normally
geo-referenced; SIDs and STARs are not.
When the lower component is active, cycle between different types of information by
pressing ENTER or clicking/tapping within the component:
On Airport (Runway) Charts
1. Chart Header
2. Additional Runway Information
3. Takeoff and Obstacle Departure Procedures
On Approach Charts

157

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


1. Chart Header (Briefing Strip)
2. Chart Profile
3. Approach Minimums

Selecting Split View


To switch to or from split view, do one of the following:

Click the Split View/Single View icon.

Press S.

The status bar indicates whether the chart is geo-referenced.

If the chart is not geo-referenced, you will see a copy of the full chart in both
components, only smaller in the bottom component.

TIP

Although split view is not specifically designed for non-geo-referenced charts,


you can use the extra component to zoom in on one part of the chart, while
keeping a different part of the chart visible in the other component.

Behavior of Split View and Single View

Before you can zoom, scroll, or otherwise work with the upper and lower
components, you must first make the component active (highlighted with a
color border):

With a mouse or pointer, click inside the component.

With a keyboard, press TAB or SHIFT+TAB to move to another


component. You can then press the ENTER key to perform the same
actions as further clicking in the component. Use the PLUS SIGN (+)
and the MINUS SIGN (-) keys to zoom, and the ARROW keys to scroll.

When viewing a chart in split view, changing the display to single view
presents the chart at the same scale with the plan view. To view the full
chart, click within the component or press ENTER. If the chart is zoomed in on
a location, click Restore or press R.

FliteDeck remembers the last view setting on a terminal chart before you
switch to view another type of chart.

Setting Multiple Viewing Areas of a Terminal Chart


FliteDeck remembers what was last viewed on a terminal chart for each page. Any
chart viewed during a session, whether in the Clipboard or in a chart list, displays the
same location set as it was left before switching to another chart view.
158

Terminal Page
In split view, certain charts (particularly approach charts) can be displayed in five
different viewing aspects. Click inside the upper and lower components to view the
different sections of the chart:
1. Select an approach chart (see Selecting a Chart).
2. Display the chart in split view (if needed) by clicking Split View/Single
View.
3. Click inside the upper component. This is the first view. This single click
toggles the upper pane between plan and full view. If the full chart was
displayed, the view will change to the plan section of the chart. If only the
plan section was in view, the full chart displays.
4. Click again inside the upper component or press ENTER; this is the second
view. The plan changes to full view, or the full chart changes to plan view.
5. Activate the lower component by clicking within it or pressing SHIFT+TAB.
This is the third view. The lower pane toggles between the header, profile and
minimums portions of the chart.
6. Click again inside the lower component (press ENTER) to toggle the next
chart portion; this is the fourth view.
7. Repeat Step 6; this is the fifth view.

TIP

2. Click Remove from Clipboard (F10).

To remove all the charts from the Clipboard:


1. Click Manage Clipboard (F9).
2. Click Clear List.
This functionality allows you to quickly clear all the charts that have been added to
the Clipboard to start fresh and/or add charts that are relevant to the next pilot/trip.

Viewing Clipboard Charts


On the Terminal page, use Previous Chart (F11) and Next Chart (F12) to quickly
view the listed charts. When these buttons are used, the labels display new charts
dependent on how the Clipboard is arranged.

165

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

When you select a chart that is not currently in the Clipboard, the Previous Chart
and Next Chart buttons are not available. This occurs because the Next Chart and
Previous Chart labels depend on the selected chart in the Clipboard. To view the
clipboard charts, either add the displayed chart to the Clipboard, or select a chart to
view from the Clipboard.

NOTE

166

There is no underlying meaning to the bold text that occasionally occurs


in the Previous Chart and Next Chart labels. This is a result of how the
program analyzes the size of the text and the size of the buttons.

Enroute Nav Page


Use the Enroute Nav page during the enroute portion of your flight. This page
contains a chart component, navigational information components, profile view, and
a supplemental track indicator (STI).

Flight Information Blocks


When position information is available, flight information displays on the left side of
the screen. Each information block has several information types. You can cycle
through by clicking the block or by pressing the corresponding bezel or function key.
Heres a brief description of each information block.

Block 1 Waypoint Information


Click this block (or press F1) to cycle between various types of waypoint information:

Active Waypoint displays the active waypoint in your route with bearing and
distance from your present position, and desired track (DTK) as planned for
your route.

Active Waypoint Frequency if the active waypoint is an airport or VOR.

Next Waypoint in your route following the active waypoint with the DTK to
that waypoint.

167

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Next Airport displays the next airport's frequencies of your active route.

Destination Waypoint with distance along the route, ETE and ETA (in the
time zone of the destination).

Destination Airport displays the airport destination frequencies.

Block 2 Current Situation


Click this block (or press F2) to cycle between various types of information about
your current situation.

Vertical Speed indicates rate of climb or descent in units per minute.

Position displays your position (latitude/longitude) from the GPS or GPS


simulator.

VMG to Active displays the Velocity Made Good (VMG) to your active
waypoint. This is the velocity at which you are moving directly toward the
waypoint. It matches your groundspeed if you are exactly on course. It is
close to the speed you would read on a DME if you could set a DME for your
active waypoint.

Cross Track Error (also shown on the STI, if displayed).

Altitude from the GPS and height above ground reference.

IMPORTANT

Ground reference is an approximate terrain elevation over an


unspecified geographic area near your present position. It is not
precise enough or reliable enough to be used for terrain
clearance.

Block 3 Nearest
Click this block (or press F3) to cycle between various objects that are nearest your
present GPS position. Includes bearing and distance information to the facility, and
frequency information.

Nearest Center displays the nearest center and the centers frequency based
on your current position.

Nearest FSS displays the nearest Flight Service Station (FSS) and the
stations frequency. It also displays the bearing and distance from your
current location.

Nearest Airport displays the nearest airport and the bearing and distance
from your current location.

Nearest Airport Frequency displays the frequencies of the nearest airport.

Nearest VOR displays the closest VOR from your current position.

Block 4 Navigation Computer


Click this block (or press F4) to cycle between various information:
168

Enroute Nav Page

Ground Speed

Average Speed since takeoff

Trip Time

Odometer displays distance traveled over the ground.

Time Off displays the local and Zulu time when the program identifies
aircraft movement (from a GPS or the GPS Simulator Trainer) is greater than
the ground speed setting. The ground speed setting can be modified in the
Track/Vertical Profile tab of the FliteDeck Setup program. The local time is
generated from the Time Zone where movement occurred.

Time On displays the local and Zulu time when the program identifies aircraft
movement (from a GPS or the GPS Simulator Trainer) is less than the ground
speed setting. The ground speed setting can be modified in the Track/Vertical
Profile tab of the FliteDeck Setup program. The local time is generated from
the Time Zone where movement slowed or ceased.
NOTE

Time On and Time Off only reset when the program closes.

Sunrise in Local and GMT displays the local and GMT time of the sunrise. The
sunrise local time is based upon your current position on the moving map
using a GPS or the GPS simulator.

Sunset in Local and GMTDisplays the local and GMT time of the sunset. The
sunset local time is based upon your current position on the moving map
using a GPS or the GPS simulator.

Current Time displays the local and Zulu time based upon the time zone of
the airport nearest to your current position. The time is calculated starting
from your computer clock, and adding or subtracting to match the time zone
of your current position. The time zone of your current location displays below
the clock time. If you are more than 150 miles from an airport, the letters of
the alphabet appear indicating military time. For a list of military letter
designations, visit http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/info/timezone.htm on
the Internet.

NOTE

The Current Time block does not use the time zone set on your
computer clock. JeppView FliteDeck looks at your current position from
the GPS, and displays the time zone in that location. For example, your
computer clock might be set to Eastern Time, but if you are traveling on
the Pacific Coast, JeppView FliteDeck displays the current time using
Pacific Time.

Block 5 Route Information


Click this block (or press F5) to cycle between various types of information:

Route Leg DTK is the desired track (DTK) to each waypoint in the route
from the previous waypoint. Helps you anticipate turns at upcoming
waypoints.
169

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Route Leg Dist displays the distance for each route leg. If you are
traveling on a route leg, it displays the remaining route leg distance from
your present GPS position to the next waypoint.

Route Leg ETE is the amount of time estimated to fly each route leg
based on present ground speed.

Route Distance shows cumulative distance from your present position to


each waypoint in the route.

Route ETE shows cumulative ETE from your present position to each
waypoint in the planned route, based on present ground speed.

Route ETA is estimated time of arrival in local a.m./p.m. and Zulu time at
each waypoint along the route, based on present ground speed. The local
time is based on the time zone of an airport near each waypoint. If the
waypoint is more than 150 nautical miles from any airport, then military time
(maritime) is used.

Chart Overlay
After a chart is selected from the Terminal page, you can overlay that chart on the
Enroute Nav page and on other pages that display enroute charts (except the
Emergency page).
The Chart Overlay button is labeled with the identifier of the airport and the chart.
Click this button to cycle between displaying the full chart, the Plan View (if
applicable) and no overlay.

The Chart Overlay button is located in the upper right corner of the page on the
Jeppesen EFB-style layout and on the status bar on the Standard Notebook
Computer layouts.

170

Enroute Nav Page

Profile View
The Profile View displays the following information for your route:

Height of terrain An approximate value for situational awareness.

Airspace information Blue shaded areas indicate terminal airspace, and


red indicates restricted areas.

Distance along the route in nautical miles Shown along the top scale.
You can change this in the FliteDeck Setup program to show distance
remaining in the route (see Track/Vertical Profile).

Route Waypoints Shown along the bottom scale from left to right as your
route progresses.

Altitude profile Purple line showing your climbs, level flight segments,
and descent.

Cleared altitude marker A yellow line marked with an altitude is your


clearance altitude set on the Plan page (see Setting the Altitude Along the
Route).

171

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Course projection line A gray line showing where your present vertical
speed and course will take you with respect to airspace and terrain. Display
course projection line must be selected in the Enroute Chart tab of the
FliteDeck Setup program.

When you zoom in on the enroute chart, the profile view also adjusts, although the
exact scale may vary from your chart zoom level. The profile view shown above is a
typical on-route (OnRte) display. It shows the altitude profile, with terrain and
airspace along the route. Even if youre momentarily on a ground track that points
toward high terrain or restricted airspace, you will not see those things on the profile
as long as you are on course.
The profile view shown below is what you might see when you are off-course. The
yellow OffRte flag shows in the lower left corner of the profile view. The altitude
profile and the route waypoints are no longer shown. The airspace and terrain
reflects what is ahead of your current ground track under the course projection line.

Displayed Weather in the Profile View


The Profile View displays weather products to help with situational awareness. If your
XM weather receiver connection is active, the weather products always display. See
Weather Products for additional information.

The Supplemental Track Indicator (STI)


NOTE

In order for the STI to appear, FliteDeck must be receiving a valid GPS
position or using the GPS Simulator.

FliteDecks Supplemental Track Indicator (STI) looks like a Horizontal Situation


Indicator (HSI). It is not an HSI because it cannot display the aircraft heading
information. Instead, it displays your ground track against your planned course.
Refer to the picture at the right to help the visualize the STI concept.

172

Enroute Nav Page

The straight line at the top of the STI is called a lubber line. It marks the
aircrafts ground track.

The green arrow, which is pointing down in this picture, is the bearing
pointer. This pointer marks the bearing to the active waypoint, Moses Lake
(KMWH) in this case.

The bearing pointers position relative to the lubber line is a relative bearing, but not
exactly as relative bearing is normally defined. The STI measures bearing relative to
aircraft track, not heading.

The yellow split arrow pointing up in this picture is the course pointer. This
arrow indicates the flight plan course to the active waypoint from the previous
waypoint. Like an HSI, the course deviation bar indicates whether the course
is to your right or left. This image shows the course is to the right, and
deviating farther from course (better turn about 30 degrees right).

The STI component offers additional information at a glance:

173

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

The active waypoint is in the upper left corner.

The ground track is in the upper right corner. This is the same information
that is shown graphically under the lubber line.

Distance to the active waypoint is in the lower left corner.

ETE to the active waypoint is in the lower right corner.

Along the bottom is the cross-track error (distance left or right of course),
and scale indicator.

There are three available scales for the STI. Click on the STI to switch between
them:

You can view general airport information for both IFR and VFR airports (runway
information, communication and navigation frequencies) by clicking the Info:
[Airport] button on the Plan page, Terminal page, Enroute Nav page and Enroute
Map page. If you have a connection to XM weather, additional weather information
also displays, such as TFRs, METARs, Terminal Area Forecasts and City Forecasts
(see Weather for additional information).
To view the airport information:

174

On the Plan page, enter an airport in the Enter Waypoint text box, and click
Info: [Airport] or click the airport name to the right of the Enter Waypoint
Text Box.

Enroute Nav Page

On the Terminal page, click Info: Airport.

On the Enroute Nav page, click on an airport in the enroute chart and click
Info: [Airport].

On the Enroute Map page, click on an airport in the enroute chart and click
Info: [Airport].

The Airport Information is organized in four sections: General, Communication


Frequencies, Runway/ Navigation Frequencies, and Weather. To view any of the
information, click on the labeled button.

General information contains airport information about location, latitude and


longitude coordinates, elevation, time zone, fuel types and services. For US
airports, it also displays what paper sectional the airport resides on. If an
active XM weather connection is available (see Weather), there is also textual
information about any nearby Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs).

Comm Freqs displays communication frequencies for the selected airport.

Runway Nav Freqs displays runway information including size, surface


conditions, touchdown zone elevation (TDZE), localizer ID, frequency and
bearing. This page also displays nearby navigational aids.

Weather accesses information from an XM receiver and displays METARS,


Terminal Area Forecasts, and City Forecasts.

Chart Setup page


The Chart Setup page allows you to show or hide different data types in the chart
components, and to change the chart theme, chart track, and chart orientation.

Changing the Chart Theme


Themes are different presentations of map features that emulate familiar chart
types. Click the Theme button to cycle between the available chart themes.

The status bar indicates which theme you have chosen:

Default

European VFR

FMS

Jeppesen Low Altitude Enroute

Jeppesen High Altitude Enroute

177

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Road Map (StreetVision is an optional add-on at an additional price)

The Chart Theme name displays on the Themes button and in the Status bar. Once
you have chosen a base theme, you can customize it using the chart preferences
along the left and right of the enroute chart (see Chart Preferences).

TIP

In the FliteDeck Setup program, select only the themes you intend to use,
so you do not have to cycle through all the available themes during flight.
See Enroute Chart Tab for additional information.

Chart Preferences
Use the buttons along the left and right side of the chart component to select the
map elements to include on the enroute chart view.
These preferences apply across the range of chart scales, therefore, depending on
the zoom level, FliteDeck's automatic decluttering hides or shows the map elements.
A map element that displays at a zoomed-in level is hidden at some greater
zoomed-out level.

TIP

To override auto-decluttering, zoom out to the largest view in which you


want to view a map element, and check the element to add it at that
zoom level and all lower zoom levels.
Note that the more elements you add, and the larger the view, the longer
FliteDeck will take to redraw the large map views with all the added
elements.

The Chart Setup and Enroute Nav pages share the same chart settings, including
zoom level. The Plan page and the Emergency page have their own zoom levels, but
they are also affected by what is selected in the Chart Setup page.
All your enroute chart settings are saved when FliteDeck closes allowing your
preferences to be viewed the next time FliteDeck launches. To return the chart
preferences to the original theme data set, click Theme Reset.

Satellite Weather Preferences


If you have an active connection to your XM WxWorx Satellite Weather service, you
can customize the weather overlay by clicking Weather Options.

Currently, FliteDeck displays the following weather products:

178

Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD)

Chart Setup page

Aviation Routine Weather Reports (METARs)

Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs)

Terminal Area Forecasts (TAFs)

City Forecast

Cloud Tops

Winds

Surface Analysis

Freezing Levels

Unlike the other Chart Preferences, weather products do not have a decluttering
mechanism to help manage chart elements. Once the products are turned on, they
display at all zoom levels up to continental. Most weather products begin to display
when the view is set at approximately 600 nautical miles per square inch. METARs
display when the view is at 500 nautical miles per square inch. For additional
information, see Satellite Weather.
To return to the enroute chart preferences, click Chart Options.

Chart Tracking Mode


When GPS position information is available, the Chart Tracking mode adjusts the
enroute chart according to your aircraft position. Clicking the Chart Track button
cycles between four settings:
Optimum mode shows the maximum amount of chart area ahead of
the aircraft symbol, moving the chart beneath it along the planned
route.
Centered mode centers your aircraft in the screen and moves the
chart beneath it.
Visible mode moves your aircraft icon across the chart view. This
mode requires the least CPU performance because the chart moves
only when the aircraft flies off the edge.
Route mode zooms out to show the full route.
When you click one of these buttons, the status bar indicates which tracking mode
you have switched to.

Chart Orientation
When GPS position information is available, the chart can be rotated, the way some
people like to hold paper charts. Clicking the Chart Orientation button cycles
between three options:
North Up keeps the top of the chart at the top of the screen and true
north, like a standard paper chart.

179

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Track Up adjusts the chart so that your actual ground track points to
the top of the screen.
Course Up adjusts the chart so that your planned route direction is
toward the top of the screen.
You can also change the chart to north-up orientation by clicking the grey magnetic
North Arrow on the chart.

Working with Different Languages


The Jeppesen Airway Manual displays information only in English regardless of what
language you select on the Text Viewer Toolbar.
The Bottlang Airfield Manual (VFR Text) works somewhat differently because it
supports multiple languages. Various categories under the Bottlang Airfield Manual
support different countries (France, Germany, Austria, and so on). Each country
listed has information in specific languages; all of them display in English.

Austria has the same information in English and German.

Belgium has the same information in English and French.

France has the same information in English and French.

Germany has the same information in English and German.

Switzerland has the same information in English, German and French.

All other countries show information in English only.

Depending on what language you select in the toolbar, some countries might not
have any topics in that language. For instance, when all languages are selected, you
will see all topics available for that country in the languages that it supports.

184

Satellite Weather Initial Installation and Configuration


NOTE

Go to step 2 if you just installed the Jeppesen Weather Service.

The following instructions are the recommended steps if you are using FliteDeck with
your XM WxWorx Satellite Weather service for the first time. Before beginning the
installation and configuration process, you must have FliteDeck version 3.3 or later.
To verify your version, open the FliteDeck Setup program and view the FliteDeck
version number at the bottom of the Configuration tab. If you do not have version
3.3 or later, install it using the Internet update feature or with the CD updates
received by mail (see Keeping Your Programs Up-to-Date for additional information).

STEP 1: Install Jeppesen Weather Services


If you did not install the Jeppesen Weather Service during an ECD Disc 2 update or
during the electronic update to FliteDeck version 3.3:

Launching FliteDeck with Weather


After you have successfully installed and configured the Jeppesen Weather Services
on your computer, use the following procedures based on your operating system to
view weather in FliteDeck.

Windows Vista
One of the ways Vistas security changed was by separating system services and
user applications into separate sessions. Keeping the system services isolated helps
to better secure them, but also makes any interactive interface unavailable to the
user. Thats where the Interactive Services Detection service comes in. When a
service needs to interact with the user, Interactive Services Detection presents a
dialog that will switch the user to the session where the service is running so they
can interact with the service. XmLink has been set up as a service, so when your
computer starts, the Interactive services dialog detection window appears where you
can gain access to session 0 (look in your taskbar for the minimized window). The
following is the recommended process to work with XmLink under the Windows Vista
configuration:

199

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


1. Connect your weather receiver and ensure it has power and it is turned on.
2. In the Interactive services dialog detection window, click Show me the
message. When you click Show me the message you will switch to session
0 where you can see your interactive service.

3. Click File > Exit in XmLink.


4. If necessary, click Yes, Exit.
5. Click Return now.
6. Double-click the XmLink icon to verify you are receiving weather data (do not
close XmLink). If you are receiving weather data, the XmLink icon will also
blink in your system tray (by your clock).
7. Start FliteDeck.
If you do not care about seeing the XmLink application with your connection
information, you can leave it running in session 0. If you do leave it in session 0, you
will have to use the Interactive services dialog detection window to check on your
signal strength. The only way to have the XmLink application on your desktop for
easy access is to use the procedures identified above.
After the Jeppesen Weather Controller (JWC) and XmLink are installed and
configured using the steps outlined in Initial Installation and Configuration, your
configuration is complete. Every time your computer starts, JWC automatically
initializes XmLink and starts to collect weather data from your receiver when it is
connected. You do not need to revisit XmLink unless changes have been made to
your XM subscription, weather receiver, or COM port.

200

Satellite Weather
If you do not see all the weather products you have subscribed to that FliteDeck
displays, wait approximately five to seven minutes upon connecting your receiver.
The data transmission times when XM broadcasts weather varies between each
weather product which is between five and fifteen minutes.

Windows 2000 and XP


After you have successfully installed and configured the Jeppesen Weather Services
on your computer:
1. Connect your weather receiver and ensure it has power and it is turned on.
2. Double-click the XmLink icon to verify you are receiving weather data (do not
close XmLink). If you are receiving weather data, the XmLink icon will also
blink in your system tray (by your clock).
3. Start FliteDeck.
After the Jeppesen Weather Controller (JWC) and XmLink are installed and
configured using the steps outlined in Initial Installation and Configuration, your
configuration is complete. Every time your computer starts, JWC automatically
initializes XmLink and starts to collect weather data from your receiver when it is
connected. You do not need to revisit XmLink unless changes have been made to
your XM subscription, weather receiver, or COM port.
If you do not see all the weather products you have subscribed to that FliteDeck
displays, wait approximately five to seven minutes upon connecting your receiver.
The data transmission times when XM broadcasts weather varies between each
weather product which is between five and fifteen minutes.

Starting Your Computer Without a Connected Weather Receiver


When you start your computer without a satellite weather receiver connected,
XmLink will still try to connect to the receiver. When this occurs, the following
messages appear:
1. When the XM2Nr Error dialog box appears, click OK.

2. When the XmLink dialog box requests communications setup, click No.

201

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

If you connect a weather receiver later, initialize XmLink by double-clicking the


XmLink icon on your desktop.
If you do not want XmLink to initialize at startup, you can change the setting to
where XmLink starts when you launch JeppView FliteDeck, or you can completely
disable it. See Advanced Configuration of JWC for additional information.

Displaying Cached Weather Data


As you receive weather files from your weather receiver, they are stored to your
hard drive in a designated location determined by XmLink and the Jeppesen Weather
Controller (JWC) installer. After XmLink collects the weather data from the weather
receiver and places it in the XmLink data folder, JWC collects the XmLink data and
caches it in its own folder that FliteDeck uses.

For Windows 2000 and XP, the JWC folder resides in the same location as the
FliteDeck folder on your hard drive. For instance, if you installed FliteDeck in
the default location (C:\Jeppesen\FliteDeck3), the JWC folder will be
located at C:\Jeppesen\JWC.

For Windows Vista, the data resides in the


C:\ProgramData\Jeppesen\JWC\XMWeather folder.

If you have collected weather data in the last 48 hours, there is a good chance the
weather files are still located there. To find the cached weather files, browse to the
JWC folder, and then open the XMWeather folder. If you are collecting weather
information or have collected weather lately, you should see a variety of weather
folders (cloud tops, freezing, METARs, radar, and so on). The cached files reside in
the appropriate folders.
When the weather products expire, they no longer display in FliteDeck. This ensures
that you are not viewing old and expired information.
The weather files residing in the cached folders have four associated timestamps:

issue date

time received

valid start time

expiration time

After the data is cached, FliteDeck displays the weather from the valid start time to
the expiration time. In other words, if you collect the weather data for twenty
minutes to ensure you receive all the weather products, you can essentially
disconnect the weather receiver and still be able to display weather in FliteDeck for
another 47 hours and 40 minutes.

202

Satellite Weather
Many pilots who must fly multiple legs and do not want extra clutter in the cockpit
connect to their weather receiver before takeoff. They then ensure they are getting
weather data, allow it to cache for approximately twenty minutes, or until all the
weather products display in JeppView FliteDeck, then disconnect the receiver and use
the cached data while flying. When they reach the next destination, they repeat the
process to get up-to-date information.
There are a few things to keep in mind if using this process to view weather in
JeppView FliteDeck:

Because you are not seeing live weather from a satellite feed, the rate of
error is increased slightly. You are at your own risk when viewing cached data
from your hard drive. Even though the data is correct between the valid time
and expired time, you are not receiving constant updated information. Having
the correct time on your computer ensures that the data that is to expire
actually is removed from the FliteDeck display when it is supposed to.

Make sure your computer clock is set to the correct time and time zone at all
times.

View the weather legends to display the age of the data. When you first
connect to the weather receiver and start to display weather data in
FliteDeck, check the age of the data before disconnecting. The more recent
the data, the longer you might be able to display weather from the cache
directory. The weather data expires at various times depending on the
weather product. Some weather products are valid for many hours (such as
freezing levels and winds), and some data might expire in an hour (METARs).

Currently, there is no access within JeppView FliteDeck to display the times that the
weather products are to expire.

Advanced Configuration of the Jeppesen Weather Controller

Satellite Weather Troubleshooting


If you do not see weather in FliteDeck, use the following troubleshooting tips to help
narrow down the problem.
Did you install the Jeppesen Weather Services?
Before satellite weather can be seen in FliteDeck, you must install the Jeppesen
Weather Controller Services and configure XmLink. For additional information, see
Initial Installation and Configuration.
Is the computer clock set to the correct time and time zone?
FliteDeck uses your computer clock and GMT time to determine the valid dates and
time of the weather data you are receiving. If your clock is incorrect, you might not
see any weather data in FliteDeck.
To change your computer's time and time zone:
1. Open Date and Time Properties dialog box using one of the following
methods:

Double-click the clock in the task bar.

Click Start > Control Panel > Date and Time.

2. On the Date & Time tab, and select the item you want to change.

To change the hour, double-click the hour, and then click the arrows to
increase or decrease the value.

To change the minutes, double-click the minutes, and then click the
arrows to increase or decrease the value.

To change the seconds, double-click the seconds, and then click the
arrows to increase or decrease the value.

To change the AM/PM indicator, select it, and then click the arrows.

3. To change your time zone, click the Time Zone tab. In the box above the
map, click the drop-down arrow, and then click your current time zone.
Are you receiving weather data in the XmLink folder?
Verify that you are receiving weather data in the XmLink folder. The location of the
XmLink data folder depends on which application first installed XmLink:

206

If you did not have an application that used XmLink before installing the
Jeppesen Weather Controller (JWC), the JWC installer places the XmLink data
in the C:\Jeppesen\JWC\XmLink\data folder. If you did not use the default

Satellite Weather
installation folder for FliteDeck, JWC will reside in the same folder as where
you assigned FliteDeck.

If you had another application installed that uses XmLink (such as WxWorx on
Wings), it might be located at C:\Program Files\Common
Files\XMLink\data.

In XmLink's Data folder, you should see files that end in X01 (X-zero-one) as seen in
the image below.

If you do not see any files (X01 or X02), check your receiver connection and satellite
signal using XmLink. If you have more than one application that uses XmLink, make
sure you are viewing the correct folder. The location of where XmLink resides
depends on what application installed it first.
If you only see X02 files:
1. Close XmLink (do not minimize).
2. Browse to the C:\Jeppesen\FliteDeck3\Utils folder and double-click
JeppesenWeatherServiceSetup.exe.
3. In the Welcome dialog box, select Repair Service Installation, and then
click Next.
4. After the repair is complete, JWC launches XmLink. Configure your weather
receiver.
5. Check for X01 files in the XmLink data directory. After the weather receiver is
connected, it may take up to 5 minutes for the files to appear.

207

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


If you are seeing X01 files and still not seeing weather in FliteDeck, continue with the
next question.
Are the weather files being cached in JWC's XMWeather folder?
After XmLink collects the weather data from the weather receiver and places it in the
XmLink data folder, the Jeppesen Weather Controller (JWC) collects the XmLink data
and caches it in its own folder that FliteDeck uses.

For Windows 2000 and XP, the JWC folder resides in the same location as the
FliteDeck folder on the user's hard drive. For instance, you installed FliteDeck
in the default location (C:\Jeppesen\FliteDeck3), the JWC folder will be
located at C:\Jeppesen\JWC.

For Windows Vista, the data resides in the


C:\ProgramData\Jeppesen\JWC\XMWeather folder.

Browse to the JWC folder, and open the XMWeather folder. If you are collecting
weather information, you should see a variety of weather folders (cloud tops,
freezing, METARs, radar, and so on). If the weather folders are available, check the
date and time the folder was last modified. If the data is more than 30 minutes old:
1. Close XmLink (do not minimize).
2. Open the Services Console by using one of the following methods:
A. Click Start > Run, and enter services.msc, and then click OK.
B. Click Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools, and then double-click
Services.
C. Click Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance >
Administrative Tools, and then double-click Services.
3. Right-click Jeppesen Weather Controller Services and choose Stop from
the shortcut menu.
4. Delete all the contents in the XMWeather folder.
5. In the Services Console, right-click Jeppesen Weather Controller Services
and choose Start from the shortcut menu.
6. Configure your receiver with XmLink.
7. In the Services Console, click File > Close.
It will take approximately five to seven minutes for weather data to start appearing
in FliteDeck.
Is there a satellite signal?
To determine if you are receiving satellite weather, open XmLink. When XmLink
starts, and when it is minimized, its task bar button is removed and only the double
headed arrow icon is shown in the system tray (near the time display). To display
the XmLink main screen, do either of the following:

208

Double-click the XmLink icon on your desktop or in the system tray.>

Satellite Weather

Right-click the XmLink icon in the system tray and choose Show Console
from the menu.

If you are a Windows Vista user, XmLink might be displayed in session 0. For
more information, see Launching FliteDeck with Weather.

Shown in the main window of XmLink is the signal quality data that is periodically
delivered by the receiver. In addition to the general status, the Bit Error Rate (BER)
for both satellites and any ground repeater is shown. Low values of BER indicate
good reception. When a very high BER is associated with a source, it is shown as
>999, which essentially means no signal.
It is not necessary to receive both satellites. Excellent performance can be obtained
from only one. The signal quality is also recorded in the log at the top of every
minute.
If you are still not receiving a signal:

Ensure the antenna has a view of the Southern sky and the receiver is
activated through XM Listener Care (1-800-985-9200).

In airplanes with heated windshields, there can be signal interference which


prevents the portable receiver from working properly.

If your receiver has been inactive for several months, you might need to
refresh your service. Refresh your service over the Internet at
www.xmradio.com/refresh or by phone at 1-800-985-9200. You will need
your 8 digit receiver serial number.

You may have received a defective receiver. Contact the receiver manufacture
to troubleshoot and potentially return your receiver and receive a new one. If
you are using a receiver from WxWorx, contact WxWorx at 256-319-9679. In
order to return a receiver, a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) is
required.

Is the right COM port assigned?


You can identify the serial port that your receiver is connected to by looking in the
Device Manager. If you have not already done so, you need to install the weather
receiver on your computer based upon the manufacturer's installation instructions.
Connect the power and USB cable to the receiver (follow the instructions provided
with the receiver), and then connect the receiver to your computer USB port.
Microsoft Windows will recognize the receiver and install the drivers. The receiver
must have power and be connected to your computer with all the receiver drivers
installed.
To verify your COM port in the Device Manager:
1. Open the System Properties dialog box by doing one of the following:

Right-click My Computer and choose Properties from the shortcut


menu.

Windows XP: Click Start > Control Panel > System.

Windows 2000: Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > System.

Windows Vista Classic View: Start > Control Panel > System.

209

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


2. Click the Hardware tab (Windows 2000 and XP only).
3. Click Device Manager.
4. Click the plus sign (+) beside Ports (COM &LPT).
5. The COM port number appears behind the USB Serial Port device.

NOTE

If your computer has several USB ports and you plug the receiver into a
different port than the port Windows originally assigned, then Windows
might assign a different COM port number. The COM port setting depends
on the device number chosen by the driver and the operating system.
Typically, it will be higher than COM2.

Unlike the chart data products, the weather products do not have a decluttering
mechanism to help manage chart elements. Once the products are turned on, they
display in all incremental zoom levels below the default opening setting. Most
weather products begin to display when the view is set at approximately 600 nautical
miles per square inch. METARs display when the view is at 500 nautical miles per
square inch. Display the graphic scale to determine the view scale.

Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD)


NEXRAD is a Doppler radar that detects movement using the principle that radar
signals reflected from a moving object undergo a change in frequency related to the
speed of the object toward or away from the radar antenna. NEXRAD uses this
information to calculate the speed and direction of storm movement. This can be
particularly useful for identifying conditions which can eventually lead to severe
weather.

NEXRAD appears over all the enroute chart views when the view is at approximately
600 nautical miles per square inch. It also appears over any selected geo-referenced
terminal chart displayed in the Terminal page. The cloud returns are more opaque
the more you are zoomed out on the enroute chart. As you zoom in, the returns
become more transparent allowing you to view other navigational information easily.
On some tablet devices, the degree of contrast will vary, making the colors look
more or less intense as the translucency of the fill areas changes.

When using an actual GPS, you can view the altitude in block 2 of the Enroute Nav
page (See Flight Information Blocks for additional information).

227

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Wind stations are approximately 80 miles apart, so many terminal charts will not
have a wind barb overlay unless the wind station is in close proximity to the airport.

Selecting Wind Altitude

228

Satellite Weather
The wind altitude seen on the enroute chart and terminal chart is dictated from the
altitude of the GPS input or the altitude set within the GPS simulator (see Learning
FliteDeck with the GPS Simulator Trainer). If a GPS is not available or FliteDeck is
configured to be a terminal chart viewer only, you can display wind information at a
specific altitude by doing the following:
1. Click the Plan tab.
2. In the Enter Waypoint text box, enter the desired altitude to view wind
information (8500, FL120). With the flight level format, do not place any
spaces between FL and the value.
3. Click Cleared to [altitude] ft/m.
The altitude entered displays on the legend. Selecting a route does not change the
altitude of the winds. If you need to see winds at a different altitude, you must
repeat the steps outlined above. When positional data is present using a GPS or the
GPS simulator, the altitude of the wind data shown uses the present position altitude
and ignores the manual altitude set with the Cleared to [altitude] ft/m button.

Legend and Age of Data


To view the age of the data, click Wx on any of the pages (except the Text page and

Wind Data in the Profile View


In the Profile View, winds are displayed as blue arrows at different altitudes. The
arrow length indicates the relative strength of the wind component. The longer the
arrow the faster the wind speed. Weather symbols are always displayed in the Profile
View as long as the wind data is being received from your weather receiver. At this
time, an option to hide the information is not available. See Profile View for
additional information.

Troubleshooting and Getting Help


This chapter outlines general troubleshooting techniques as well as common
questions. You may also want to check the Readme file for latest information.

Installation Troubleshooting
I received the JeppView3 program and Electronic Chart Data CDs, but am
unable to find a regional code. How does JeppView know what regions I
want? The serial number you were given is associated with chart coverage of a
specific region you requested when you ordered JeppView. When you use the
Electronic Chart Data installer and the update agent from your Electronic Chart Data
subscription, they automatically recognize your region selections. All you need to
record for future reference is your serial number.

How do I add other regions to my subscription? Please see Expanding your


Regional Coverage Area for additional information.

I have FliteDeck installed on four computers. How can I install it on a newly


purchased computer? Your license allows installation of any combination of
JeppView and FliteDeck on only four computers. To install the program on a new PC,
deactivate JeppViewFliteDeck3 on one of the original computers. Jeppesen support
can help you get set up as long as the use falls within the terms of the agreement.

I get an error message stating that I have exceeded all my site keys. You are
trying to install FliteDeck on more computers than the license allows.
To activate the program on a new machine and have use of the installation for longer
than the 30-day trail period, deactivate one of the other current JeppViewFliteDeck3
programs, or call Jeppesen support for assistance.
To install the program on more than four machines, call Jeppesen Sales to order
another licensed version of JeppView.

Installing to the tablet, the installer says the computer "does not have the
minimum resolution required." The installer will only install in landscape mode
(wider). This message appears when the tablet is set up for portrait screen
orientation (taller).
The workaround is to set the screen to landscape, run and complete the installation,
then reset to portrait.

General Questions and Troubleshooting


Are you having one or more of the following problems?

Blank screens

Corrupt data

261

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

Display failures

Button or tab font/layout corruption

Other display problems

The problems mentioned can be caused by a corrupt configuration file. To try and
resolve the situation, try the following technique:
1. Verify your Tablet PC is in "Windows Mode" if using ADR Shell.
2. Delete the FliteDeck3.ini file in c:\windows.
3. Restart the computer and open FliteDeck. The system will act as if it's a new
installation.
4. Complete the Interview and launch FliteDeck.
Are you having problems installing or reading a new CD from Jeppesen
where you receive one of the following errors?

Windows or Installshield generates Runtime errors etc.

"ISRT - DLL Function call crash"

"Insert Disc 0 that Contains the File DATA3.CAB"

Scratch.bfd errors

CRC (cyclic redundancy check) errors

Component Transfer Error

An installation support file could not be extracted

Other errors

These failures are normally caused by a CD/DVD drive not reading the Jeppesen CDs
correctly. It is most common on Tablet computers with external USB or PCMCIA CD
or DVD Drives. Use the following troubleshooting methods to determine if it's the
drive or the media.
RESOLUTION 1
Look at the CD and ensure there are no smudges or scratches. Use compressed air
to clean out the CD drive.
RESOLUTION 2
If able, try another computer (preferably a desktop) to verify there is a problem with
the CD. If it fails in the second computer, you know you have a bad CD unless the
computer is the same model.
RESOLUTION 3
FIRMWARE Updates Search the manufacturer's website for Tech Support/
Downloads/Etc. for 'DVD, CD-ROM, firmware update' or a similar search using your
specific model of computer. Here are the results of searches done with Gateway, HP,
Dell and IBM 'T' Series laptops.

My charts used to display and now they're gone - what happened?


When the terminal chart subscription is more than 60 days past the effective date,
the electronic charts no longer display. Download and install an update, or contact
Customer Service to renew the subscription so you can update.

Why am I not seeing the Emergency Page, the STI or the Flight Information
Blocks?
These flight information components are hidden because FliteDeck is set up not to
receive position information. To view these components, open the FliteDeck Setup

265

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


and click the GPS tab. Select Use simulator or connect a GPS and select GPS
Connected. Restart FliteDeck to view the changes.

Why cant I zoom in on the chart and still show my aircraft?


Route tracking mode shows the whole route on the screen at all times. Go to the
Chart Setup tab and change to another tracking mode.

Is there a way in FliteDeck to draw a user-defined boundary similar to what


is in FliteStar?
Currently, FliteDeck does not have a boundary tool.

What's the easiest way to get started using FliteDeck?


Use the setup program to choose a configuration (display style and size) and set up
your GPS. It is highly recommended to use the Interviews available from any tab in
the Setup program.
If you are using FliteDeck to only view terminal charts, practice setting up and using
the Clipboard. If you are interested in route planning features, start by creating a
simple route and viewing Route charts in the Terminal page. You can also connect a
GPS or use the GPS Simulator to view your position on the enroute and terminal
charts, and display information on the Enroute Nav and Emergency page.

Do I need a GPS to run FliteDeck?


No, but GPS input adds so much functionality to FliteDeck that we highly recommend
it.
Without a GPS, we turn off the features that rely on position information, including
direction, and speed (STI, Direct To button, Flight Information Blocks, Chart Track
button, Chart Orientation button, Nav Info bars, and the Emergency page). For
familiarization and training, use the provided GPS simulator.

Do I need FliteStar to plan routes for FliteDeck?


No, you can create simple routes within FliteDeck. However, FliteStar offers many
advanced route planning features you may be interested in using. To quickly get
started, review Creating a New Route.

Can FliteDeck use routes that I planned in FliteStar, or created in JeppView?


Yes. Routes that are created in either FliteStar or JeppView can be viewed and edited
in FliteDeck. Ensure that the RoutePack directory where they are saved is the same
one selected in the Routes tab of the FliteDeck Setup program.

What does "Off Rte" mean in the Enroute Nav page Profile View?

266

Troubleshooting and Getting Help


This is an indicator telling you that the terrain depicted in the profile view is not the
terrain beneath your planned route. Instead it is telling you that the terrain shown in
the profile view is the terrain in front of you, on your projected track.

Is there a "VFR" theme, like in FliteStar?


No, but you can use the Chart Setup page to turn on terrain and set other features
to make the enroute chart look the way you want it to look.

Why do I see localizers when they are turned off in the Chart Setup page?
In the Low Altitude Enroute theme, some localizers connected to formations display
when the Intersections are selected.

Can I use the STI to fly an ADF approach?


The following technique is not to replace your ADF in the cockpit because it does not
take into account external dependencies, such as crosswinds. When comparing the
STI to an ADF, there may be some differences where the waypoint resides in relation
to your actual position.

267

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


There are two techniques that can be used, so that the STI acts as an ADF. You can
place a single waypoint in the Route Waypoint list, or turn sequencing off while the
active waypoint is the first waypoint in your route. With an active connection from
your GPS (or with the GPS simulator), the STI will use your current position,
continually updating, and point with the bearing pointer in the direction of the
waypoint. This technique differs from a direct-to procedure as the direct to instantly
draws a route line from where it was set.

How can I view different languages for the Airway Manual?


The Airway Manual only supports English.

In the Bottlang Airfield Manual, I am trying to view some topics in the


Germany section, but there are none available. How do I display the topics?
Verify the language mode is set for All, German, or English by pressing the
appropriate language icon on the toolbar. See the Text Viewer Toolbar for more
information.
The same holds true if you are trying to view topics in the France or United Kingdom
category. Ensure the appropriate language is selected.

GPS Troubleshooting
My USB GPS doesnt work when I try to set it up in the FliteDeck Setup
program.
You must first install the software that came with the GPS, and the GPS must be
plugged into your computer.
Your GPS must be outside to get a usable signal.

I don't know what "port" or "baud rate" my GPS uses. Help!


You can use the GPS testing buttons in the FliteDeck Setup program to automatically
find characteristics of your GPS, like communication port, baud rate (data
transmission speed), and even the type of output the GPS uses. See GPS Tab for
more information.

My GPS is connected to a serial port, but I am still unable to get a


connection to it.
There are some programs that use serial ports and block the connection even if you
are not actively using the program. You will need to free the COM port before using it
to connect a GPS. For instance, if you use Microsoft ActiveSync for a PocketPC,
ensure the connection is cleared within its application. In Microsoft ActiveSync v3.x:
1. Open Microsoft ActiveSync.

2. Click File > Connection Settings.
3. Clear Allow serial cable or infrared connection to this COM Port.
4. The next time you want to connect a device to ActiveSync, you will need to
assign the COM port back to ActiveSync.

Why isn't the GPS connection more reliable?


FliteDeck does not control the quality of your GPS connection; it only reports it on
the status bar. FliteDeck also does not display your internal GPS status (number of
satellites, signal strength, geometry, etc.). Check your GPS unit or GPS software for
that. The FliteDeck software is very robust when you are connected correctly to the
GPS, and when the GPS is outputting valid position data. If you see RED, check the
connection; if you see YELLOW, check the GPS status, if you see GREEN, you are
good to go.

How do I share a COM port between a GPS and another application?


Franson Technology has an application that may be useful for dual use issues. For

Input Device Information


A pointing device is any computer hardware component that allows a user to input
spatial data to a computer. While the most common pointing device is the mouse,
other kinds include:

Passive and Active Pens

Force Sticks

Touch Pads

Touchscreens

Trackballs

Presentation Pointers

The following sections briefly cover some of the limitations and some solutions that
may help you.
Most tablets will have a program to adjust pen or touchscreen settings. You should
try various options before using FliteDeck in the airplane to find the settings you like
most. For help in specific troubleshooting problems using Microsoft Windows XP
Tablet PC, see Input Device Troubleshooting.

Mouse
Within the airplane, a traditional mouse that uses a trackball and a mouse-pad is
unpractical and inconvenient. There are a few mouse types, however, that do work
well with FliteDeck.

An optical mouse can be used successfully with a kneeboard.

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide

A mini-mouse meant for portable use with laptops actually can work quite
well.

A wireless mouse (especially Bluetooth) eliminate the problem of cord tangles


and are more familiar to most people then other pointing devices.

Pens (Passive or Active)


The passive pen can sense and respond to pressure from any object, including a
finger. An active pen, supplied with the more professional level Tablet PCs,
incorporates an electronic device that communicates with the surface of the Tablets
display. The position of the pen can be seen over the screen without the pen actually
touching the display.
When holding your arm out-stretched, the pointing precision is greatly reduced.
When adding in the motion of the plane (and turbulence), most users find it
impossible to click on medium to small buttons. To improve the pointing precision,
move the display closer, tilt the display so that it is flat instead of vertical, and brace
your hand against the display or its edge.
The pen interacts with the computer when it is pushed slightly on the screen and
released (the push-tip switch has been triggered). Depending on the pen, you may
get many fast-clicks when trying to position your hand over the intended point on
the screen. The best fix for fast-clicks is to keep the pen away from the display until
a click is wanted.
Many of the pens have a button on the side which is held down while tapping on the
screen to display a right-click menu. With the bouncing in an aircraft, unintentional
right-clicks can occur. Many people hold the pen in such a way that the button is
pressed all or part of the time. This causes the pen to act irrationally because
FliteDeck ignores most right-click actions.

Force Sticks
Force sticks have proven hard to control in turbulence. They can work well if located
on yoke and operated with the thumb. There is no motion feedback, so accuracy is
low.

Touch Pads
A touch pad works by sensing your finger movement and downward pressure. The
stroke length is limited on most touch pads, so large route drags are a problem. In
turbulence, the pad software has trouble with the finger bouncing. Some also have
problems with the varying spot size. Most touch pads are NOT pressure sensitive.
They are directly affected by movement of your finger tip on surface of the touch
pad, so wearing gloves and using pens will not work. The double-tap used to click
features can also present problems in turbulence. The application can also get
confused when fingers or other parts of the hand slightly brush the touch pad.

Touchscreens

270

Troubleshooting and Getting Help


A touchscreen is an input device that allows you to operate a PC by simply touching
the display screen. A disadvantage to touchscreens is that you can not brace your
hand on the screen. Laying the screen in your lap often causes problems because
maps and other equipment may accidentally be positioned on the display. This may
generate random actions that were not intended. Turbulence also causes the same
problems as those found when using a touch pad.
Plastic pens or finger pointers can make the display easier to use and more precise.
This negates some of the touch screen advantage over the active or passive pens
because you now have a pen to keep track of, but if you drop it, you can just go
back to your finger.
Most touchscreens are easy to scratch and you should NEVER use a metal tipped
object to point with because the scratches will eventually make the screen impossible
to see through.

Trackballs
A trackball is a pointing device consisting of a ball housed in a socket containing
sensors to detect rotation of the ball about two axes-like an upside-down mouse, but
with the ball sticking out more. You roll the ball with your thumb, fingers, or the
palm of your hand to move a cursor. Trackballs are unfamiliar to most people.
Because your hand is braced, trackballs can work very well in turbulence once a
comfortable trackball is found.
There are many different forms of trackballs. Some run with the index finger or index
and middle finger tips. Others trackballs can be run with the palm or with the thumb.
A thumb trackball with switches under the fingers requires NO arm movement while
the others can require varying amounts of arm movement. Also the thumb type
provides the best hand bracing in turbulence.

Presentation Pointers
Presentation pointers are typically hand-held wireless devices that look like TV
remote controls. The simple ones are NOT a replacement for a mouse, but the highend devices can perform full mouse support. Some use a rocker pad that lets you
drive the pointer around the screen. Some are gyro based and respond to being
tilted. Both types can work well in turbulence because they allow a good grip and are
independent of the motions induced by the turbulence.

Input Device Troubleshooting


When using my pen to select or tap an item, something other than what was
intended is selected.
To improve the accuracy of the pen position, you should calibrate your Tablet PC
digitizer. The digitizer is basically a thin film built into the screen that interacts with
the magnetic tip in your pen. The calibration is also affected by how you view the
screen (from above, on the right or left, or straight on). If you complete a calibration
viewing the screen on the left, you will view the calibration marks at a different angle
then if you looked at it straight on. To calibrate the digitizer:

271

JeppView FliteDeck User's Guide


1. Click Start > Control Panel > Tablet and Pen Settings.
2. In the Tablet and Pen Settings dialog box, select the Settings tab and click
Calibrate.
3. Click OK when finished.

When I try to edit my route using the rubberband method or resize my


enroute chart using a zoom draw, the pen thinks I want to do a right-click.
How do I fix this?
Change the amount of time that you must press and hold before a right-click menu
takes effect:
1. Click Start > Control Panel > Tablet and Pen Settings.
2. In the Tablet and Pen Settings dialog box, select the Pen Options tab.
3. In the Pen Action section, select Press and hold, and click Settings.
4. In the Right-click mode activation section, adjust the speed slider toward
Long.
You will need to hold the pen down for a longer period of time before a right-click
equivalent is activated.

Every time I get the pen close to the enroute or terminal chart, it thinks I
want to perform a zoom draw. How do I fix this?
You need to adjust the point spatial tolerance on your tablet PC:
1. Click Start > Control Panel > Tablet and Pen Settings.
2. In the Tablet and Pen Settings dialog box, select the Pen Options tab.
3. In the Pen Action section, select Point/Hover, and click Settings.
4. Adjust the spatial tolerance slider toward Large.
Your hand will be able to move around more when you point.

When I perform a zoom draw on an enroute chart or on the terminal chart,


the blue zoom box appears but nothing happens when I release the mouse
button or remove the pen. It acts as if it is waiting for another action.
The ClickLock setting may be selected. With ClickLock on, you need to click or tap
again on the screen in order for the zoom to take place. To turn ClickLock off so that
the zoom takes place as soon as you release the mouse button or the pen:
1. Click Start > Control Panel > Mouse.
2. In the Mouse Properties dialog box, clear the ClickLock check box.
