Display is designed to require no dedicated panel space. It will
mount between the artificial horizon and the directional gyro or HSI
and will actually overlay the lower portion of many horizons. A remote
processor is mounted in an encoder-size enclosure. A single knob
requiring a 3/8" hole is used by the pilot, to control all functions of
the NavAlert II.
Display mounts to panel using two #6 screws on 3.17" centers that match
the King KI-525A and Kg 258/259 spacing. Display may be mounted using
existing screws that mount the HSI or horizon. One small hole is required
for three wires to connect to the NavAlert II processor unit.
|The pilot enters the current barometric pressure in inches or hectopascals using the unit's switch. The current encoder altitude corrected by barometric pressure may be displayed in either window and serves as a backup altimeter|
|The target altitude may be changed and displayed in the right window. Target altitude can be set in units of 1,000' or 100'. The NavAlert's switch is always "hot" to set in a new target altitude. The previous GPS display will return after the new target has been set|
|There is also a visual and audible "Gear" alert as the aircraft descends below 1,000' above the destination airport |
