Default GRT HXr screen shots (large file)

I've been flying behind the GRT 10.4 in HXr for a week or so now and am really impressed by what it offers.
Here are several screen shots with explanations of all the information that I thought might be of interest to everyone that's not familiar with glass cockpits. It's a lot to absorb at first, but once you get used to it, the situation awareness is wonderful.































I'd be glad to discuss the HXr with anyone. I hope everyone can see the great benefits of these new EFIS systems.

Default Wow...

....I'm suffering a serious case of EFIS envy. I was really happy with my dual GRT Sport setup ..... until now, that is.

Default Post mess...

Can one of the mods straighten out the posting mess. Huge images and lack of line returns is creating quite the jumble on the page..

Sorry for the way I posted them. They showed up good on my wide monitor but I got feedback that the text was all messed up so I inserted individual images with text attached.

Hope this helps.

Default Traffic Twelve O'clock

Looks great Jerry, thanks for posting.

I noticed in the second pic from the top you have a traffic target on the PFD at 12 o'clock and below you (also shown on the map). As you get closer the traffic symbol will get larger and turn yellow if less than two miles away.

It still amazes me what is available to aviators today. Great stuff!

Correct Carlos. When the traffic gets within two miles you get a "TRAFFIC ALERT" screen that covers the ENGINE data inset and show the traffic. On the PFD, when the threat gets close the big yellow ball really gets your attention.

Here's a photo of the TRAFFIC ALERT. It was taken at night so it's a bit grainy but it's readable. When this photo was taken the traffic showing was actually me but this has been corrected and now "your plane" no longer shows on the traffic pages.

Thanks Jerry. I'm the one who sent you a PM on your 200 HP "cruise" IAS down low. With all your pictures here, I can see all your power settings and IAS and TAS at 7500 and 3000 FT. Along with the PM you sent back to me, this helps a whole bunch. Do you mind if I ask what this puppy costs?

Default Can't thank you enough....

For posting this! I am seriously considering this unit for my bird, and I really appreciate the real world pics and explanation of each display. There is truly a lot to absorb, especially for those of us that are not quite fully indoctrinated in the art of electronic flight displays. I also think it would be great to see similar posts from those that are operating the other systems. I expect to be spending a lot of time in front of the GRT and VP booths at OSH this year, and this post is great primer for that.
