Anywhere Map
Chapter 1 - Introduction:
nywhere Map is a powerful intuitive software system designed to
deliver an unmatched level of Situational Awareness to assist pilots
in maintaining an ongoing understanding of the aircraft’s current
location relative to important features such as airports, airways, airspace,
topography, obstacles and navaids.
When this software is combined with a suitable Pocket PC (or Windows
CE) computer (PDA), and a suitable Global Positioning System (GPS)
receiver, the result is a color moving map system that makes accurate situation awareness an effortless part of the pilot’s overall workload.
A

et’s plan a flight using Anywhere Map’s simulator. We’ll travel from
Joplin Regional in Joplin, Missouri to Addison Airport, Dallas, Texas.
This will familiarize you with a number of the map’s features and how
they are used. For this simulation, disconnect the GPS.
We are going to profile the airplane (you only have to do this once), set up
a flight plan, set up a flight environment, and run the simulator.
■ Start by profiling the airplane and the flight environment. For the purpose of this tutorial, we’ll assume you are flying a high-performance single with retractable gear and auxiliary fuel boost pump.

■ Select a Dallas area airport by tapping Airport Lookup .
Tap the City or Airport Name box, type in DALLAS and tap Find It. After a
brief pause, a list of airports in cities named Dallas will appear. Tap twice
on “ADS” to see the data for Addison airport in Dallas. You could also have
typed in Addison for a list of airports by that name.
■ Expect the Dallas area to be crowded. While you’re in the ADS screen, it’s
a good idea to extend runway centerlines by checking XtndCL in the box
provided.
■ In the ADS airport screen, press
WPT/FLY TO. This creates a Direct-To
flight plan from JLN to ADS. This is a
single leg flight plan direct from
Joplin, MO, (or the current location)
to Addison, TX.
On the main map screen, notice the display of time, range and bearing to ADS
from the current location (JLN). Since
the aircraft is not moving at this time,
the Time to Waypoint “W” is not
shown.

This notation indicates that your destination is ADS and that you are on leg 1
of 2 currently in the flight plan.
In the Flight Plan screen note that the
manifest shows us proceeding from KJLN
to nMLC (navaid) to KADS. It gives the
range of each leg [151.6], [124.5], and the true course (CRS) to fly [204],
[204]. Earlier we profiled the aircraft in Aircraft Settings and entered cruise
speed and fuel consumption. Note
the estimates of each leg’s ETE plus
fuel requirements. (Change these values at any time and the Flight Plan
will update automatically.)
Double-tapping on any item in the

on it in the list. Press the Move Up or
Move Dn buttons to shift it up or down
in the sequence. In most cases the waypoint buttons will correctly sequence
the flight plan waypoints. This feature
is needed only when the flight plan is
unusual in some way.
Simulation
In Simulation Mode, Heading is
controlled by rocking the Hat
Switch left or right. If the gray track
line is left of the green course line,
press the switch to the right to
adjust.
■ To begin simulation, go to File > Settings > Sim Mode. Enter a Sim Speed
of 250 knots, and tap Start.
The moving map comes to life and the
aircraft departs JLN, (provided you
haven’t changed the map’s current location. If you have, double-tap on JLN in
the flight plan and tap JUMP TO.) The
course line is green, the track is gray.
You steer by pressing the left or right
side of the Hat Switch (Fig. 1.1) The
system provides guidance to the first
waypoint, showing the range, bearing,
and time to waypoint across the bottom
of the screen. As each waypoint is
passed, guidance begins to the next
waypoint. The aircraft may simply be
flown along the green Course Line on
the display. For more accuracy, enable
the HSI display. File > Setup HSI/OBS.
■ Go to File > Setup HSI/OBS. Check Slave to Flight plan for extremely accurate guidance along the route. A numerical readout of the cross track error
can also be displayed as well. Departure maneuvering typically puts us
some distance off the ideal direct path. A more detailed explanation of the
HSI is covered in Chapter 5.

Cross Track Error.
TIP: The Direct To button
provides a quick way to zero out initial cross
track error. Direct To lists current flight plan waypoints as well as nearby airports and fixes. Press
and Next Waypoint.
Anywhere Map’s Find Nearby… (File > Find Nearby…) is a powerful alternative to searching the charts for airports with ATIS or AWOS facilites.
■ Go to File> Find Nearby… Check Only Look Ahead, and tap AWOS.
Nearby AWOS radio sources are shown in order of range, with bearing
and frequency displayed. All stations within 100 nm are listed. Doubletapping on any item in the list will
call up the details about that item,
just as in the flight plan manifest.
Anywhere Map’s Flight Calculator is a
powerful instrument. In flight, you
may want to check Density Altitude,
True Air Speed and Winds Aloft.
■ Select File > Flight Calculations. The
screen initially contains data that
the System is aware of. Anywhere
Map uses GPS derived altitude.
Enter Outside Air Temperature

By pressing the top or bottom of the
hat switch, you can pan up and down
or control the zoom factor of the display. Set this function under the
Format tab of the Display Features
screen (File> Display Features:

■ Cones of Safety™ (File >Display Features: Airport Cones of Safety), if
activated, displays light green circles around all visible airports indicating
whether you are within safe gliding distance of that field, based on your
aircraft’s glide ratio and your altitude AGL. It’s not difficult to plot an
entire course intersecting these circles. Usually slight routing changes can
direct most of the flight through Cones of Safety. If you wish, you can use
Find Nearby… and also Direct To for a sorted list of nearby airports from
which to choose.
■ Nearing the destination, the BEGIN DESCENT reminder blinks on when
the recommended vertical descent rate equals or exceeds 500 feet per
minute (VNav=500). Following this descent profile results in reaching the
airport at 1000 feet AGL, near pattern altitude at most fields. The View
menu offers magnifications selectable from the menu or by rocking the
Hat Switch. Setting the display to Auto-Zoom, enlarges the detail as the
aircraft nears the airport. Disable this feature by de-selecting Auto-Zoom.

Begin Descent at VNAV=500FPM
Anywhere Map assumes you will begin a 500 fpm descent (A) to your destination, arriving at
1000 ft. AGL, pattern altitude at most airports. If you fly beyond the starting point of this
descent profile, you will need a higher rate of descent (B). Anywhere Map alerts you when
you have passed the 500 fpm profile and displays the increased descent rate.
What you need to use this feature:
• A Flight Plan to this destination
• in File >Reminders check Begin Descent at VNAV=500FPM
• GPS must be reporting altitude.
ing View > Density 3. Assume we have been cleared direct to the BRONS
LOM at Addison. Press DIRECT TO and locate BRONS in the list of Nearby
Fixes, select it and tap NEXT WP. You could also look it up by tapping Find
VOR/FIX, and entering BRONS in the identifier box.
■ Now our flight plan reflects this last minute change. The Direct-To list also
includes all the points in our current flight plan, so we may easily skip
waypoints in one step as well. As the aircraft is maneuvered to the final
destination, we are kept aware of the proximity of numerous tall towers.
■ If you fly too close to a tall tower, the OBSTACLE AHEAD warning will
appear (Obstacles must be activated in File > Reminders > Obstacle Ahead
Warning.) Only towers that rise within 500 feet of the aircraft’s altitude and
are greater than 400 ft. AGL create alerts.
■ Nearing the LOM, another reminder, CHECK FUEL PUMP automatically
comes on at 1,000 ft. AGL. As the aircraft descends through 600 ft. AGL,
CHECK LANDING GEAR appears, reflecting values you programmed earlier.
