About this Guide
This guide assumes that all available sensors and software options
have been installed in your airplane. The page layouts and button
descriptions in this guide may differ slightly from what you observe on
your EX5000. If your system is configured with a partial set of the
available sensors, then some views may differ from this guide.
Note: All images contained within this document, including screenshots and
other displays, are for reference use only and are subject to change. The
images contained herein may differ slightly from your actual equipment or
display.

Notes and Warnings
Notes and warnings provide guidance for the use of the EX5000.
Avidyne strongly suggests that you pay close attention to notes and
warnings for your own safety.
For example:
Note: Notes provide useful information about how to use the EX5000.
!
Warnings are prefaced with exclamation points and denote
information that can prevent serious injury or death on the
part of the user.
The instructions and warnings in this manual are not intended to
replace the instructions and warnings for other equipment on your
aircraft. It is critical that you as the pilot in command have a complete
understanding of the warnings, operating instructions, and limitations
for all equipment installed on your aircraft.
!
This manual assumes that the reader is an appropriately
licensed pilot. Avidyne strongly recommends that you use the
EX5000 only under VFR conditions until you are very familiar
with the EX5000.
If you have questions, please contact Avidyne at 800-2843963 (800-AVIDYNE) before operating with the EX5000 under
IFR conditions.
!
Before conducting flight operations, be sure to verify that time
and date settings on the System Time Setup Page are correct
and in GMT (UTC). It is critical that the time be set to GMT to
provide accurate display of Datalink weather. See Section
8.1, "Aux Main Page" on page 61 for more information.
!
When using the EX5000, be sure to cross-check the data
displayed against other data sources for accuracy including
other flight deck instruments and charts.
600-00108-000 Rev 07
-iii-
Entegra EX5000
!
The displayed terrain and obstacle indicators are only
advisory. Do not rely on the EX5000 as the sole source of
obstacle and terrain avoidance information. Always refer to
current aeronautical charts for appropriate terrain and
obstacle information.
!
The EX5000 is not intended to replace your navigation charts
or primary navigation aids. Use the EX5000 as a supplement
to other navigation sources, to enhance your overall
situational awareness. Do not rely on the navigation data in
your EX5000 as your sole reference for navigation.
!
While a properly updated database contains the latest official
information available, the manufacturers will not be held
responsible for any inaccuracy or omissions therein. Never
use the terrain displayed on the EX5000 as the only reference
for terrain avoidance.
!
The transmission of datalink weather information means there
is some delay from real time until the weather information is
displayed on the EX5000. Therefore, use datalink weather
information only for strategic route planning. Avoid severe
weather areas with a safe margin of distance. Do not use the
EX5000 to penetrate severe weather, thunderstorms, cells or
lines of cells.
!
By using Broadcast datalink, you can access weather
information made available from sources external to Avidyne
Corporation. Avidyne does not control, edit or review the
content of such information and is not responsible for such
information or the actions or conduct of any company that
provides sources of weather data through the Broadcast
datalink. Therefore, ALL WEATHER DATA ARE PROVIDED
AS-IS and neither Avidyne nor its suppliers, subcontractors,
or developers (collectively called “Suppliers”) are responsible
for: 1) the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, reliability,
content, or availability of the weather data or any other
datalink information accessed; 2) loss or damage to your
records or data; or 3) your use of, or results achieved from,
the weather data or any other information accessed.

600-00108-000 Rev 07
Notice regarding NOTAM information
NOTAM information is subject to constant change and it is
extremely important that all pilots check with Flight Service for
applicable NOTAMs prior to EVERY flight. Call 1-800WXBRIEF (992-7433) for the latest information.
The NOTAM information provided by the EX5000 is for
planning purposes only. Always consult official NOTAMS for
the latest restrictions.
Avidyne does not provide a complete list of NOTAMS. Local
NOTAMS, most laser light NOTAMS, and any NOTAMS other
than restricted airspace are not listed.
!
By using the Avidyne Services you are able to access
information made available from a variety of sources. Avidyne
does not control, edit or review the content of such information
and is not responsible for such information or the actions or
conduct of any company that provides sources of weather
data procured by Avidyne. Therefore, although Avidyne uses
diligent efforts to provide Services of high quality, ALL
SERVICES AND WEATHER DATA ARE PROVIDED AS-IS
and neither Avidyne nor its suppliers (including ORBCOMM
and its affiliates), subcontractors, information sources or
developers (collectively called “Suppliers”) are responsible for:
1) the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, reliability, content,
or availability of the Services or any information accessed; 2)
loss or damage to your records or data; or 3) your use of, or
results achieved from, the Services or any information
accessed.

Datalink, Display Off. When only one source of lightning data
is installed, only the appropriate modes are available. See
your lightning sensor User’s Manual for further details.
Note: (For WX-500 only.) The lightning sensor maps thunderstorm activity
by monitoring electrical discharge activity within a 200-mile radius of the
aircraft. If the display range is set to less than 25NM, only lightning strikes
within 25NM are shown. If the display range is set to greater than 25NM, all
lightning strikes are shown.
■
Clear Strikes—Removes current lightning symbols to allow
for the refresh of lightning data when using a onboard
lightning sensor. Does not remove Datalink lightning.

Note: The Map Page monitors the “health” of the sensors (traffic and
lightning) by means of a signal pulse. Map looks for a signal every
three seconds from each sensor. If it doesn’t see this signal it
assumes the sensor has failed in some way. When this happens, the
following occurs on the display:
• Sensor data is removed from the overlay display.
• The word “FAIL” displays in the sensor's status line in yellow.
• The sensor symbol changes from cyan to yellow (if the sensor was on).
What to do:
Select the Setup Page and perform Self-Test for the applicable
sensor.

3) Sensor Status Box—Displays the status of the available
sensors including radar, traffic, lightning and both 2-Way Datalink
and Broadcast Datalink. The NEXRAD (NXR) display includes
the NEXRAD data age, which is the elapsed time since the
product was created by the weather provider. See Table
13.1 Sensor Status Block Symbols on page 112 for more
information on status box symbols. (Optional Engine Instrument
Sensor Status information is described in Table 13.10 Engine
Instrument Data Block Information on page 118).

When using Datalink weather, monitor the data age so
you are aware of the time elapsed since the last
weather update.
4) Compass Rose/Range Ring—Displays a 360-degree or 120degree compass circle or arc and indicates current range setting.
The range number is the distance from the airplane symbol to the
compass arc.
Note: NEXRAD is the only Broadcast Datalink product on the EX5000 that
displays the time since the product was created by the weather provider.
Refer to the Trip page for information on all other weather products.

5) Terrain Scale—Shows highest and lowest limits of terrain in
displayed area. Legend colors in between these numerics
represent terrain elevations. Blue obstacle clearance number
shows the top of the highest obstacle, when greater than the
highest displayed terrain. Terrain data is not displayed when your
aircraft’s latitude is greater than 75 degrees (north or south).
!
The displayed terrain and obstacle indicators are only
advisory. It is dangerous to rely on the EX5000 as the
sole source of obstacle and terrain avoidance
information. Always refer to current aeronautical charts
for appropriate terrain and obstacle information.
6) METAR Flags—For each reporting airport, when Datalink is
installed and active, a METAR flag provides a quick overview of
the weather for that station. The METAR flags are color-coded:
7) Interstate Highways—Depicted as brown lines when terrain is
selected to be shown. Interstates are labeled in white. (e.g. I-95).
Highways are removed from the terrain map when the range is
greater than 300NM.
8) Lightning Indications—If configured with WX-500 or TWX-670
sensor, shows geographically referenced lightning strikes.
Lightning strikes from onboard sensors display for three minutes.
Lightning display depends on the selected mode, as follows:
■
Datalink Mode—If Broadcast Datalink is installed and you
have an appropriate broadcast datalink service level, shows
as color-coded lightning symbols. Datalink strikes darken in
color until they are removed after 15 minutes.
■

9) Special Use Airspace—The EX5000 uses several different line
styles to convey special use and class airspaces. Class B is solid
blue line, Class C is solid magenta line. Class D is dashed blue
line, MOA, Warning, and Alert areas are solid yellow lines, and
restricted and prohibited areas are solid red lines. See Table
13.7 Airspace and Airways Lines on page 116.
10) Storm Cells—If storm cells are present, the EX5000 displays the
cells along with the cell’s groundspeed, in knots, and direction of
travel, and it shows the cell echo tops with a label. If there is a
greater than 50% chance of hail, the cell displays with a white
background.

4) Flight Plan—Displays the active flight plan from the GPS. The
current leg displays in magenta and all remaining legs are shown
in white. When you select an approach procedure on the Garmin
430, all approach segments including holds, DME arcs,
procedure turns, etc., are shown (when connected via the ARINC
429 bus).
Note: The Garmin 430W can use parallel track. If the parallel track is active,
the current leg will be displayed in white.
Note: For most GPS units, the EX5000 does not display the active
course leg when you are adjusting the desired track in OBS mode.
The desired track leg will display after you finish selecting the course
and exit the OBS mode of the GPS.
Note: The Garmin GNS 430/GNC 420 does not differentiate curved
flight path segments from straight segments when interfaced with the
EX5000 via an RS232 interface. Therefore, the EX5000 will connect
the beginning and end waypoints of a curved segment, such as a
DME arc, with a straight line. Under these circumstances, the
straight line must be ignored. Approach procedures should be flown
using the GNS 430/GNC 420 navigator’s CDI as the primary
reference. Consult your avionics installation facility to determine if
your EX5000 is interfaced to the GNS 430/GNC420 via ARINC 429
or RS232.
5) Obstacles—The EX5000’s database contains towers and other
obstacles greater than 200 feet AGL. Obstacles can be displayed
with MSL altitude label.
Note: For example, a 2000 foot tall TV tower located in Denver
(elevation 5300 feet MSL) will be depicted as being at 7300 feet
MSL.

2.4 Map Orientation Control
The Map View button allows you to control the orientation of the map
and sensor data displayed on the EX5000. EX5000 traffic and
lightning sensor symbols are positioned relative to the aircraft nose.
When the Map View is North-Up you need to pay more attention to
locate traffic outside the aircraft. Set Map View to Center or Forward
to display this data consistent with typical dedicated traffic and
lightning sensor displays.
2.5 Errors Displayed on the Map Page
In general, the following errors are externally generated, but you may
notice them on the Map or other pages on the EX5000.
2.5.1 Loss of GPS Input
Loss of primary GPS is annunciated in a number of ways on your
EX5000.
●
The “Nav Source not communicating” message displays.
●
The aircraft symbol is removed.
●
There is no heading information displayed (if GPS is lost, no
heading is displayed regardless of heading source).
●
The desired track icon is removed from the compass rose.
●
There is no groundspeed information displayed.
The EX5000 continues to provide Datalink weather for your flight at
its last known position. If the primary GPS fails during flight and you
have a second GPS connected to the EX5000, you may switch your
GPS input to the backup source by pressing the Nav Src button on
the Aux Page.
Entegra EX5000

600-00108-000 Rev 07
Errors Displayed on the Map Page
2.5.2 Loss of Heading Input
The source for heading data on your aircraft is dependent upon the
particular complement of equipment you have installed in your
aircraft. Loss of heading is typically associated with the failure of one
of the following:
●
The WX-500 Stormscope system (if installed and a heading
source is connected to the WX-500).
●
The Skywatch system (if installed and a heading source is
connected to the TAS).
●
A problem with heading from a Primary Flight Display (PFD).
●
The GPS (This would be a pass through of the heading from
another source, such as an Avidyne PFD. The GPS does not
determine heading).
If an installed heading source becomes unavailable or invalid, the
EX5000 will automatically switch to using GPS track for map
alignment.
If the track source also becomes unavailable or invalid, the following
conditions will occur:
●
All traffic and lightning data is removed from the display.
●
The aircraft symbol is replaced by a direction-less symbol (a
white + symbol).
●
The compass labels (N,S, E, and W) are removed from the
display.
●
The map and flight plan data will continue to be displayed.
●
The map orientation annunciation is removed from the display
●
The heading/track indicator will display a series of dashes (“---”)
●
The map is oriented True North Up.
What to do:
●
Have the avionics wiring inspected.
When heading/track is restored, Map will resume normal operations.

3 Traffic Mode and the Traffic Page
When a Traffic Advisory (TA) is reported from the traffic sensor, the
EX5000 displays a traffic alert message in the Message Bar.
Pressing the ACK button next to the message acknowledges the
traffic alert and displays the dedicated traffic page that provides you
maximum traffic situational awareness.
!
It is dangerous to rely on the EX5000 as your sole
source of data for collision avoidance. Traffic
information is provided as an aid to visually acquiring
traffic. Maneuver your aircraft based only on ATC
guidance or positive acquisition of conflicting traffic. It is
your duty as pilot in command to see and avoid.
Notes: The intruder track information provided by TIS traffic systems
is only accurate to within 45° of true intruder track. Take this into
account when visually acquiring the reported traffic.
Keep in mind that intruder traffic can maneuver at any time, and the
current intruder track direction does not guarantee the intruder will
continue along that track.
For traffic sensors without track information (e.g. TAS), traffic
symbols are shown without the “stinger”.
3.1 The Dedicated Traffic Page
The dedicated Traffic Page is a specially configured Map page with
the following settings:
●
View—Center, with heading (or track) up
●
Range—5 NM
●
Base Map—No terrain or political boundaries
●
Declutter—No symbol or airspace depictions
●
Lightning—Not displayed
●
Flight Plan—Displayed
●
Datalink Weather—Not displayed.
Up to 5 non-bearing intruders (traffic threats reported by the traffic
sensor without valid bearing) are listed below the airplane symbol.

3.2 Traffic Symbols
On the EX5000, aircraft traffic detected by a Traffic Sensor (referred
to as intruders) are displayed as one of three symbols. If a compatible
TIS system is installed and intruder track information is available, the
appropriate symbol will be shown with a “stinger” which depicts the
current ground track of the intruder, as detected by ATC radar
systems. The traffic symbols are:

Traffic sensors do not provide any traffic awareness
data for aircraft without operating transponders.
Therefore, these aircraft will not display on the EX5000.
It is your responsibility to see and avoid all other traffic
and to maintain appropriate separation.

Traffic alert information is displayed in the message bar as in the
example above.
1) Relative bearing of target.
2) Range in nautical miles.
3) Relative altitude of traffic to your current aircraft altitude. For
example, -200 would be 200 feet below your aircraft, as reported
by the traffic sensor.
600-00108-000 Rev 07

Entegra EX5000
Traffic Mode and the Traffic Page
Intruders are displayed as they are received from and identified by
the sensor. The threat level assigned to an intruder is specified by the
sensor when it transmits the intruder data. Threat data, range,
bearing, altitude, ID and closing direction are defined by the sensor
and the type of system.
If the intruder altitude and vertical speed are known, they are
displayed alongside the intruder symbol. The number immediately
above or below the traffic symbol indicates the relative altitude of the
intruder to your position, in hundreds of feet. An arrow next to an
intruder symbol shows the direction of any vertical movement of the
intruder that is in excess of 400 feet per minute.
For example, in the Traffic Alert example shown in Table 3.1, the
intruder is 500 feet below and is climbing. In addition, the TIS
example shows the intruder is moving along a track approximately 45
degrees to the right of our current map alignment. (i.e. if the EX5000
map is set for North Up, the intruder is flying a track somewhere
between 023 and 067. This is the accuracy limit of the intruder track
data.)
3.3 TIS Sensor Status
The TIS interface is only available on the EX5000. For TIS
installations, the following may be reported in the Traffic status block
on the EX5000 Map Page:
●
OPER—The TIS sensor is operating normally.
●
CST 00:00—The TIS sensor has temporarily lost the information
feed from ground-based radar and is in “coast” mode. The
EX5000 will continue to display the traffic last received, while the
CST timer will count the seconds since the last valid data.
●
RMV 00:00—After 12 seconds of coasting, the TIS sensor will
remove the traffic display and display RMV, and continue to count
the time since the last valid data.
●
UNAVAIL—More than 60 seconds have passed since valid data
was received, or TIS data is not available at the current aircraft
location.
●
SBY—The TIS sensor is in standby mode.
●
DATA FAIL—The TIS sensor has reported an internal fault.
Traffic information will be removed from display.

4 TAWS Page (Optional)
If your EX5000 system has been configured with a Terrain
Awareness and Warning System (TAWS), turn the Page knob to
“TAWS” to view the TAWS Page.
!
Any display of yellow or red on the TAWS page
indicates an imminent terrain or obstacle hazard.
!
The TAWS display on the EX5000 is an optional
component of any TAWS-B installation, and is intended
only to enhance situational awareness. All terrain
avoidance maneuvering must be predicated on
indications from the installed TAWS system, and not
from the EX5000.

600-00108-000 Rev 07
TAWS Page (Optional)
1) Range Annunciation—The range number indicates the currently
selected range as selected by the Range knob. The supported
ranges are 2.5, 5, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160, 240, and 320 nm. At start
up, the EX5000 TAWS range defaults to 80nm.
2) Display Orientation—This annunciation describes the
orientation of the TAWS display. If heading is available to the
EGPWS, the TAWS display orientation is “heading up”, with the
aircraft's heading to the top of the display. HDG ### MAG
displays, where ### is the aircraft's magnetic heading as reported
by the EGPWS.
If Heading is lost or not available to the EGPWS, the EGPWS
may use magnetic ground track instead, and TRK ### MAG
displays, where ### is the aircraft's magnetic ground track.
In certain locales, such as near the magnetic poles, magnetic
variation may become unreliable. The Display Orientation will
switch to the “true” value, for example, HDG ### TRU or TRK ###
TRU.
If neither heading nor ground track is available, the terrain will be
replaced by the cyan message “TAWS Display Unavailable”.
3) Scan Marker—The marker is a short white line that moves
across the top of the display area. It indicates the current position
of the scan.
4) Peaks Mode Elevations—Appears only when your EGPWS has
been installed with the “Peaks Mode” option selected. The two
numerical values correspond to the highest terrain/obstacle
elevation displayed and the bottom elevation of the lowest color
band displayed. Elevations are expressed in feet above sea level,
with the hundreds digit displayed half size, i.e. 108 is equal to
10,800 feet and 010 is equal to 1,000 feet.
If there is no appreciable difference in elevation (flat terrain) only
the highest value displays. The color of each elevation value is
the same as the color of the terrain display containing that
elevation (green, yellow, or red). During a terrain alert,
threatening terrain will be displayed as bright red and/or bright
yellow. The elevation value colors are not modified in this case,
but continue to correspond to the colors that would appear in the
TAWS display under normal circumstances, and represent the
actual elevation of the terrain relative to the aircraft.

5) Range Rings—Range rings are shown as solid white lines. The
distance to the outer ring is shown in the Range annunciation.
The inner ring is one half the range of the outer ring.
6) Terrain Data—Terrain data is depicted as color areas
representing various elevations relative to your aircraft and
potential hazard situations.
7) Azimuth Lines—When pressed, labeled azimuth lines appear
every 20 degrees. Press it again to remove the azimuth lines.
8) Geometric Altitude—Presents current geometric altitude as
calculated by the EGPWS. The geometric altitude is calculated
via GPS altitude reporting.
9) Range Knob—Changes the TAWS display range. During the
short delay between the request for a new range (by turning the
range knob) and the actual display of data at the new range, a
“Requested Range Annunciation” displays. This is a dashed box
immediately below the Range Annunciation, containing the new
range that has been requested. If too many TAWS range
requests are made before the EGPWS completes a full scan, the
display may temporarily say “TAWS Failed”, but will resume
normal operation within a few seconds.
Note: The EX5000 displays TAWS data that is received from the
TAWS sensor. The EX5000 does not generate its own TAWS data.
!
MSL-G is based on an internally calculated geometric
altitude by the TAWS. Geometric altitude is the height
above MSL derived from GPS. It represents the
aircraft's calculated height above MSL and serves as
the reference altitude for color-coding of the TAWS
terrain display and as the input to the TAWS look-ahead
algorithm. Because it is derived from GPS altitude, this
reference altitude will often differ from corrected
barometric altitude. The geometric altitude, which may
be in error by 100 feet or more, is not to be used for
navigation. It is presented to provide the crew with
additional situational awareness of true height above
sea level upon which TAWS terrain alerting and display
is based.

4.2 TAWS Operation
Terrain and obstacle alerts are the most critical situations displayed
by TAWS. There are two levels of alerts:
●
Caution—Possible terrain or obstacle conflict within 40-60
seconds.
●
Warning—Possible terrain or obstacle conflict within 30 seconds.
Note: At the maximum range settings of 240nm and 320nm, terrain
data for portions of the display beyond 320 nm may not be available.
At these range settings, portions of the display representing
distances greater than 320 nm may be black even though significant
terrain may be present. The occasional loss of this display data
occurs at the extreme limits of the EGPWS, but does not
compromise safety or terrain awareness.
When a caution alert is triggered, the terrain or obstacle that caused
the alert displays in bright yellow, as shown below. In addition, a
message describing the nature of the alert is presented in the
message bar.

When a warning alert is triggered, the terrain or obstacle that caused
the alert displays in bright red. In addition, a message describing the
nature of the alert is presented in the message bar.
Figure 4.3 Terrain Warning Condition
When a caution or warning alert is active, the display image
surrounding the target is enlarged somewhat to allow the terrain or
obstacle to be better seen on the display. See Table 13.10 TAWS
Messages on page 119 for a complete listing of TAWS messages.
If a terrain or obstacle alert occurs while a page other than TAWS
Display is being displayed, a terrain or obstacle alert message
displays in the Message Bar. When you acknowledge this message,
the EX5000 automatically switches to the TAWS Display Page. The
message bar is removed from the display when the EGPWS is no
longer in alert status, or if you acknowledge the message from the
TAWS Page.

4.3 TAWS Reference
4.3.1 Auto-Range
If the EGPWS has been installed with the “auto range” option
selected, the terrain display range is automatically set to 10nm
whenever a terrain or obstacle alert takes place, overriding the
current range selection. To remind you that the range has been
automatically changed, the text “Auto” is added in the range
annunciation. Manual range control is not disabled by auto-range.
You can reset the range to any desired value.
4.3.2 Simultaneous Alerts
If a terrain or obstacle alert and Traffic Advisory (TA) are issued at the
same time, TAWS will have priority, and the terrain or obstacle alert
message will be presented in the Message Bar. When you
acknowledges the alert, the EX5000 switches to the TAWS Display
Page. After you acknowledge the TAWS message from the TAWS
Page, the TA is shown in the Message Bar. If you then acknowledge
the TA, the dedicated Traffic Page, discussed in Section 3.1, "The
Dedicated Traffic Page" on page 19, will pop up.
If a TA occurs while a terrain or obstacle alert is in progress and the
TAWS Display Page is being displayed, the EX5000 will remain in
TAWS Display and the TA message will appear in the Message Bar.
Acknowledging the TA message displays the dedicated Traffic Page.
4.3.3 Terrain Messages and Error Indications
The TAWS display may present messages in the Message Bar.
Press the ACK button to acknowledge TAWS Page messages and
remove them from the message bar. Large text annunciations will
remain. See Table 13.10 TAWS Messages on page 119 for a listing
of possible TAWS messages.
If the TAWS Page is accessed immediately after you turn on the
EGPWS, the system may still be initializing and the TAWS Page will
display the text “TAWS Initializing” rather than the expected terrain.
The EGPWS and TAWS Page will begin normal operation when
initialization is complete.

!
As pilot in command, it is your duty to have alternate
sources of approach data available to you. Do not rely
upon CMax charts as your sole source of navigation
information.
!
It is critical that you update the Jeppesen database
regularly and prior to conducting flight operations to
insure accurate data. Use of an outdated database is
entirely at your own risk.
8.1 About CMax
CMax charts include instrument approach procedures, arrivals,
departures, airport diagrams, and various taxiway and airspace
diagrams typical of Jeppesen printed charts. The CMax feature
requires that you have a valid chart data subscription from Jeppesen
Sanderson, Inc. For information on obtaining a CMax subscription,
see the Avidyne Data Update Guide or the Jeppesen website at
www.jeppesen.com.
The Data Update Guide also contains instructions for loading the
chart data to your Zip Drive or USB Flash Memory Drive. See Section
Entegra EX5000

CMax Chart Pages (Optional)
13.1.2, "Loading CMax Chart Data" on page 103 for information
about loading CMax Data onto your EX5000.
Note: You can load new CMax Chart data into the MFD as soon as
you receive each data cycle. Any charts that have changes that are
effective on a certain date are controlled within the data. The MFD
will display the proper Chart data based on the current date and the
effective date of the changes to the chart.
8.2 About Geo-Referenced Charts
The greatest additions to situational awareness come from charts that
are geo-referenced. A chart is geo-referenced when the chart data
supports a correlation of chart position to actual latitude and longitude
coordinates. This allows an ownship symbol and flight plan legs to be
accurately represented on the chart. If a chart is not geo-referenced,
the ownship and flight plan legs cannot be drawn on the chart. Most
Jeppesen approach charts and airport diagrams are geo-referenced;
most arrival, departure, and miscellaneous charts are not.
8.3 CMax Chart Page
If CMax is enabled on your EX5000, you can access the CMax
Charts Page by turning the Select knob to Chart. The Chart Page can
have two charts ready for viewing at any one time: an airport diagram,
and a procedure chart (or another miscellaneous chart associated
with that airport). The airport and associated charts are selected on
the Chart Selection Page, described in Section 8.5, "CMax Selection
Page" on page 57.
The EX5000 Startup Page reports the valid dates for the currently
loaded chart data. If the date for the next update has passed, the
Startup Page will report this in yellow cautionary text. If the chart data
becomes more than 10 weeks out of date, access to the charts shall
be revoked until new chart data is loaded.
On power up, if your EX5000 is receiving a valid position from your
GPS unit, the Chart Page will default to display the airport diagram of
your current position. An approach procedure chart will not be
displayed until one is selected. If no valid GPS position is available at
start-up, the Chart Page will default to the Chart Selection Page for
manual selection of a chart.

Note: The ownship symbol on the Chart page is always
oriented according to the current GPS ground track. Therefore,
the ownship is always pointed in the direction the aircraft is
moving, and does not show any crab angle induced by
crosswind components.
Note: For a flight plan to be displayed on a given chart there
must be a waypoint on that chart in the flight plan. For
example, a direct flight plan from KBED to KLAX passes over
KEMT. If you bring up KEMT charts, the KBED-KLAX flight
plan will not display. To display the flight plan over KEMT, a
waypoint on an approach for KEMT must be included in the
flight plan.
8.4 CMax Views
The EX5000 provides two sets of charts, Procedure and Airport. For
ease of use and readability, each chart is divided into sections that
are shown individually. Use the Display button to toggle between
Procedure charts and Airport charts. Press View to cycle through the
available views for that chart.
Note: If CMax detects non-standard data for a particular chart, a full
chart view will be the only available view for that chart, and the georeferenced ownship and flight plan will be not be displayed.
8.4.1 Procedure Chart Views
For the Procedure chart, the Header, Profile, and Minimums views

Usable Fuel Page is described in Section 9.2, "Initial Usable Fuel
Page" on page 70.
It is critical that you accurately enter the actual onboard
fuel quantity on the Initial Usable Fuel Page to ensure
accuracy of the fuel totalizer functions.
!
Visually check the actual fuel in each tank in
accordance with aircraft POH procedures as part of the
aircraft pre-flight inspection. After the amount of fuel has
been visually confirmed, enter the amount into the Initial
Usable Fuel Page.
Inaccurate fuel entry can result in a misleading
indication of fuel or time remaining, which could lead to
fuel starvation, loss of engine power, and forced
landing.
Be sure to cross-check fuel quantity and fuel remaining
during flight.
!
• Fuel quantity is the amount of fuel in the tanks, as
measured by the tank probes. See the aircraft POH for any
limitations on the fuel measurement.
• Fuel remaining is based on a calculation using the initial
fuel amount entered by the pilot, and the fuel flow
integrated over the time of the flight so far.
If the Check Fuel Remaining Warning (Red)
displays, prepare to land immediately!

9.3 Using Lean Assist
When the optional EMax package is installed, the EX5000 is
equipped with a Lean Assist function that allows you to set the
optimum mixture for various operating conditions. The EX5000
automatically detects whether you are leaning for best power or best
economy and provide visual messages to guide you toward the
correct mixture setting.
The Lean State displays in the Engine Data Block on the Map Page,
described in Section 9.4.1, "Lean Data Block States" on page 74
!
It is very important that you adjust the mixture slowly
and continuously. Leaning the mixture too quickly can
disrupt the EX5000’s ability to accurately track the peak
EGT, and could result in a mixture setting that can
damage the engine. Always be sure to monitor Oil
Temperature and CHT readings, to ensure they stay
within specified limits.
!
If at any time during the Lean Assist process the engine
begins to run roughly, richen the mixture slightly until
the roughness abates.
Note: See your aircraft POH or Engine Operator’s manual for
information on leaning and engine operating limits.
9.3.1 Leaning for Best Power
1) To lean the engine for best power, begin by pressing Lean Assist
and smoothly lean the mixture control.
2) The Engine Page displays “Looking for First Peak” at the top of
the temperatures section of the display.
3) When leaning for best power, the final mixture setting is based on
first cylinder to peak. As the mixture is leaned look for a rise in
EGT. In the example shown in Figure 9.3, cylinder #5 is the first
to peak, and Peak Detected displays on the Engine Page.
4) At this point you can begin to richen the mixture. As the mixture is
richened, the display first annunciates Looking for #5 to Peak
(Rich), and then Peak Detected (Rich) as it determines the peak
temperature. Finally, Best Power displays when the optimum best
power mixture has been achieved.

9.3.2 Leaning for Best Economy
1) To lean the engine for best economy, begin by pressing Lean
Assist and smoothly lean the mixture control.
2) The EX5000 displays Looking for First Peak at the top of the
temperatures section of the display.
3) As the EGT rises the first cylinder will reach peak EGT followed
by the second cylinder.
4) Continue to slowly lean the mixture.
5) After the third cylinder peaks, the annunciation will change to
Looking for Last Peak. The final mixture setting is based on the
last cylinder to peak.
6) As the mixture is leaned further, the last cylinder will eventually
peak, and Last Peak Detected will display on the Engine Page.
7) Continue leaning until Best Economy displays, which indicates
that the best economy mixture has been achieved.

11.1 About Datalink Weather
To enhance weather data for your flights, you can optionally install an
external Broadcast Datalink receiver that receives a constant stream
of weather data and is fully integrated with your EX5000. Broadcast
Datalink requires a fixed monthly subscription, available from WSI or
XM WX Satellite Weather (a service of XM Satellite Radio).
!
Use Datalink weather only for strategic planning
purposes. Do not use the EX5000 to penetrate severe
weather, thunderstorms, cells or lines of cells.
!
Datalink does not qualify as (and is not intended to
replace) an FAA-approved weather briefing. Do not rely
upon Datalink to replace pre-flight or inflight briefings
and other sources.
Note: If you have a Broadcast Datalink receiver installed, you must
purchase service from WSI or XM Satellite Radio to automatically
activate the receiver. See Section 13.2, "Broadcast Datalink Service
Purchase and Activation" on page 106 for information about WSI and
XM WX service.
The Broadcast Datalink receiver receives weather data for the entire
contiguous United States (CONUS). It is not necessary to enable or
disable the receipt of individual types of data. The display of the
received data is controlled on the appropriate Pages: Map, Trip or
Nearest.
Weather data coverage from WSI or XM WX Satellite Weather
includes the continental United States. Outside this area, weather
information is not provided. The boundary of the coverage area is
Entegra EX5000
-86-
600-00108-000 Rev 07
Using Datalink (Optional)
shown on the Map Page as a “hatched” pattern, as shown in Figure
11.6 on page 96. Some remote areas of the United States may not
have NEXRAD coverage. See the Aeronautical Information Manual
(AIM) for more information on NEXRAD coverage areas.
Note: If you have recently activated an XM WX subscription, the
Service Level may temporarily display as “None defined” until the
Datalink receiver confirms your Service Level. This process may take
a day or two, but you will still receive Datalink weather information.
When you start up the EX5000, the Datalink receiver will enter an
“activation mode” to confirm the Service Level, which will cause a
delay in receiving weather data.

600-00108-000 Rev 07
Map Page with Datalink Weather
●
METAR symbols—Each METAR reporting station shown on the
Map Page will have a METAR condition flag displayed. The color
of the METAR flag indicates the current conditions at that airport:
●
AIRMETs/SIGMETs—AIRMETs and SIGMETs are shown as
ribbed lines enclosing the area of the advisory and are color
coded and labeled as to their type. For more details, see Section
Table 13.7, "Airspace and Airways Lines" on page 116.
●
NEXRAD Radar Images—Broadcast satellite weather NEXRAD
images are delivered with a resolution of approximately 1 NM.
The EX5000 smoothes the edges of the NEXRAD images, so
that the images are not distracting at smaller zoom ranges. The
NEXRAD colors conform to aviation standards: green, yellow,
red, and magenta depict varying intensities of rainfall, and
shades of blue for snow and pink for mixed precipitation. A handy
legend for the NEXRAD colors is found on the Trip Page:
●
Storm Cells—If storm cells are present, the EX5000 displays the
cells along with the cell’s groundspeed, in knots, the direction of
travel and the echo tops. If there is a greater than 50% chance of
hail, the cell displays with a white background.

Updating Your Databases
13.1 Updating Your Databases
Avidyne makes use of three different types of data that can be
uploaded to or downloaded from your EX5000:
●
●
●
NavData—For the Map Page, Avidyne uses NavData from
Jeppesen Sanderson, Inc. it is your duty as pilot in command to
ensure that the data you fly with remains up to date.
CMax™ Chart Data—An optional Avidyne feature that allows you
to view JeppView chart data on your EX5000.
EMax™ Total Engine Management—EMax tracks engine and
other data, which you can download from the EX5000 to your PC
for analysis.
You can use a Zip Drive or USB Flash Memory Drive to move data
between your PC and the EX5000. For more information about the
databases, and about loading data from your PC to a Zip Drive or
USB Flash Memory Drive, see the Avidyne Data Update Guide.
USB Flash Memory Drives come in many sizes and configurations. A
sample USB Flash Memory Drive is shown below. For a list of
approved USB Flash Memory Drives, see the Avidyne website at
www.avidyne.com.
600-00108-000 Rev 07
-100-
Entegra EX5000
Reference
This section describes moving data from your Zip Drive or USB Flash
Memory Drive to the EX5000.
If using a Zip Drive Dataloader:
• Allowing the portable Zip Drive to dangle by the cable can
result in damage to your MFD, or the Drive, as well as a
dataload failure.
!
• Do not insert the Zip disk into the Zip Drive until 5 seconds
after power-up. The disk may be damaged if it is already in
the Zip Drive when power is applied.
• After loading the CMax data into your MFD, wait until the
disk is ejected from the drive before unplugging the Drive,
or powering off the MFD. Unplugging the Zip Drive with
the disk still engaged may cause damage to the disk.
If using a USB Flash Memory:
!
• Avidyne strongly suggests that, to avoid confusion, you
reserve a USB Flash Memory Drive solely for EX5000
database transfers.
• After uploading data, do not remove the USB Flash
Memory Drive until you see and acknowledge the regular
EX5000 Startup screen.
Note: When removing the rubber cap from the data port, pull the cap
gently from the top until it pops out. Make sure the cap is all the way
out before plugging anything into the USB port.
Do not tug on the tab at the bottom of the cap; this could separate
the cap from the EX5000 bezel.
13.1.1 Loading NavData (the Navigation Database)
Your new EX5000 will be pre-loaded with an up-to-date navigation
database. Updates to the EX5000 NavData database are available
from Jeppesen Sanderson, Inc. every 28 days and can be purchased
either individually or on a subscription basis.

Updating Your Databases
Once you have downloaded the NavData from your PC to either a Zip
Disk Dataloader or USB Flash Memory Drive, as described in the
Avidyne Data Update Guide, you can upload the data to the EX5000.
➤ To load NavData to your EX5000:
1) Bring either the Zip Drive and disk or the USB Flash Memory
Drive to the EX5000 at the aircraft.
2) Turn power OFF to the EX5000.
3) Connect the data source to the EX5000:
■
If using a USB Flash Memory Drive, plug it into the data port
on the front of the EX5000.
■
If using a Zip Drive Dataloader, put the Zip disk into the Zip
Drive. Connect one end of the cable to the Zip Drive and the
other end to the EX5000 data port.
Note: Ensure that the Dataloader is supported and not
dangling by the cable. Letting the Dataloader dangle can
cause permanent damage to the data port. It can also cause
an intermittent connection, which will result in an unsuccessful
data update.
4) Turn on the master switch to power up the EX5000. The
Dataloader Page displays.
Note: If the regular start screen displays, the EX5000 did not
detect the Zip Drive. Check the connection between the Zip
Drive and the EX5000, then restart the procedure.
5) Press Proceed. Do not turn off the EX5000 or disconnect the
cable during a data load. The data load is complete when the
regular startup Page displays.
6) After the startup Page displays, turn off power to the
EX5000, remove your USB Flash Memory Drive or Zip Drive,
and then turn the EX5000 power back on.
This step ensures that all data has been checked in self-test and
the MFD is ready for use.

safe place.
13.1.2 Loading CMax Chart Data
Once you have downloaded the CMax data from your PC to either a
Zip Disk Dataloader or USB Flash Memory Drive, as described in the
Avidyne Data Update Guide, you will need to upload the data to your
EX5000.
➤ To load CMax Data to your EX5000:
1) With the MFD power OFF:
■
If using a USB Flash Memory Drive, plug it into the data port
on the front of the EX5000.
■
If using a Zip Drive Dataloader, connect one end of the cable
to the Zip Drive and the other end to the EX5000 data port.
Do not insert the Zip disk into the Zip Drive until after you turn
on the MFD (in step 2).
Note: Ensure that the Dataloader is supported and not
dangling by the cable. Letting the Dataloader dangle can
cause permanent damage to the data port. It can also cause
an intermittent connection, which will result in an unsuccessful
data update.
2) Turn on the MFD. If you are using a Zip Drive, insert the Zip disk
into the Zip Drive when the initial EX5000 logo screen displays.
3) The Dataloader Page displays.
➥
If this is the first-ever update, you may see a caution that you
are about to load older data than the MFD already contains.
This is because the preloaded demo charts expire in the year
2020, so the caution message is normal.
Press Proceed to start the chart data load.
4) The Dataloader Page shows the progress as it loads the data into
the MFD. After loading the data, the Dataloader performs an
integrity check on the data and displays a successful data load
message if all data is valid.
5) When the operation is complete, the EX5000 will continue to the
normal startup Page.

13.1.3 Downloading EMax Data
You can download the engine log files from the EX5000 using either a
Zip Drive and Zip disk or a USB Flash Memory Drive.
Note: If any of the downloaded engine log files contains file format
errors, you may receive an erroneous caution that the data transfer
failed. Check your Zip disk or USB memory device for the transferred
files.
➤ To download the stored engine data log files:
1) Turn power OFF to the EX5000
2) Connect the data source to the EX5000:
■
If using a USB Flash Memory Drive, plug it into the data port
on the front of the EX5000.
■
If using a Zip Drive Dataloader, connect one end of the cable
to the Zip Drive and the other end to the EX5000 data port.
Note: Ensure that the Dataloader is supported and not dangling by
the cable. Letting the Dataloader dangle can cause permanent
damage to the data port. It can also cause an intermittent
connection, which will result in an unsuccessful data download.
3) Turn on power to the EX5000.

ejected from the Zip Drive.
8) At this point, turn off power to the EX5000, remove your USB
Flash Memory Drive or Zip Drive, and then turn the EX5000
power back on. This step ensures that all data has been checked
in self-test and the MFD is ready for use
9) You can now bring the Zip Drive or USB Flash Memory Drive to
your PC and download the EMax data. See the Avidyne Data

13.5 ICleaning the EX5000 Screen
If your EX5000 screen should become dirty due to fingerprints or
dust, clean the screen using the following materials and methods:
●
A clean, soft lint free cloth such as 3M Ultra-Brite Cloth # 2011 or
similar.
●
A cleaning solution composed of de-ionized water or isopropyl
alcohol (IPA).
Always apply the cleaning solution directly onto the cloth. Never
spray cleaner directly onto the screen.
Note: Use caution when using IPA as it is flammable.
!
Using any other chemicals or materials voids the
warranty.
The EX5000 screen is made of a plastic film that is vulnerable to
scratches, damage by sharp articles or improper cleaners. Use care
when cleaning.
