Approach Plates for Horizon HX and HXr
IMPORTANT: These plates are not geo-referenced. For geo-referenced plates, please visit seattleavionics.com/grt
The FAA provides non-geo-referenced approach plates in pdf format which can be downloaded individually or batch-downloaded and placed on a USB flash drive. This feature was intended for use in Horizon HXr or multi-screen HX systems where one screen can be dedicated to viewing the chart. The following documents explain how this works. Above-average computer skills are required for the download setup process.
How to Batch-Download Approach Plates from the FAA AeroNav Website
Recommended for highly experienced computer users. The download tool referenced in Part 2, Step 1 of the above document is no longer maintained. Please use this script instead. The instructions suggest ActiveState Perl, but Strawberry Perl should work if that isn’t available.
