About This Manual
Apollo 360 Map Display
Caution
The Apollo 360 is a powerful navigation display, but you
should never rely solely on any one piece of navigation
equipment. It is important to maintain a constant
awareness of the navigation picture by using all
appropriate resources.
This device should be installed only by an FAA certified
facility. Certified avionics technicians will properly install
and checkout your Apollo 360, ensuring trouble free
operation when you fly with the unit.
Federal Aviation Administration regulations require pilots
to practice SEE and AVOID. Do not study this manual
while flying. Make your first flight using the Apollo 360
during good weather in a low traffic area. Read at least
Sections 1 and 2 of this manual before you fly.
It is recommended that you read through this entire manual
and familiarize yourself with the controls and operation of
the unit before navigating with the Apollo 360.

Section 1
Introduction to the Apollo 360 Map Display
This section introduces you to the Apollo 360 and explains
how to use and switch between the unit’s operating functions.
A description of information that shows on the display when
you use each function is included at the back of this section.
Section 2 builds on the introductory information presented
here as you switch on and begin using the Apollo 360.
Remember that the Apollo 360 Map is not a primary
navigation instrument. It works in conjunction with a GPS or
Loran that can provide position, bearing, flight plan, and
other useful information. The Apollo 360 Map is a
supplemental navigation display. The quality of the position
information it displays is dependent on the navigation device
providing that information. Do not attempt to conduct an
approach based on the information from the Apollo 360 Map.
Use a navigation device authorized for flying approaches to
navigate this phase of flight.
The
There are five main operating functions, each performing a
Operating different and unique task while you navigate. Each function
Functions also provides one or more screens of information on the
display. At least one of these functions is always in use when
the unit is on. The functions operate independently of one
another, so you can switch between them.
The five operating functions are:
n

Display
Care and
Cleaning
Instructions
Your new Apollo 360 Map has a space-age anti-glare film
that has been applied to the display screen. This is the same
film that is used on the NASA Space Shuttle windows. The
surface of the film has a hard coating that is scratch
resistant. Despite this coating, extreme care must be taken
when cleaning the display screen. To remove stains,
smudges, fingerprints, and so forth, we recommend these
cleaning methods (if the first method fails to remove the
problem, try the next method):
n
Wipe with a clean, dry, non-abrasive fabric (for
example, cotton or Handi-wipes)
n
Blow on the area to condense moisture on the display
and then wipe the area with the clean fabric
n
Moisten a clean fabric with a small amount of water and
wipe the display area
n
Apply a small amount of glass cleaner (without
ammonia) to the fabric and wipe the area
n
Apply a small amount of isopropyl alcohol and wipe the
area (this is the last resort)
Note:
Use a clean fabric with each cleaning method to avoid
other contaminates.

Navigating a Trip
This section explores the navigation display function and
describes the powerful features it contains. You will use
this function most frequently while you fly, so it is
important to have a good understanding of this operating
function. Follow the instructions provided in Sections 1
and 2 before you read this section. Leave the unit on, relax
in the cockpit with your aircraft parked, and use the
features this section describes to become familiar with
them. In this way, you can more effectively use this
powerful navigation aid to your advantage when flying.
Even though you may not be actively navigating, you will
be able to gain valuable familiarity with the unit. When
you become thoroughly familiar with the controls and
comfortable operating the unit, you will be better able to

Course deviation shows in the rectangular Course Deviation
Indicator (CDI) at the bottom of the display. The airplane
symbol moves over the graduated CDI to show your relative
distance left or right of desired track. The CDI display
correlates with the sending navigation device CDI output. If
the sending device changes CDI scale it should drive the
CDI “Needle” on the Apollo 360 Map to match the relative
deflection amount to it’s own CDI display.
Bearing/
Range/
Ground
Speed
Screen
The bearing/rang/ground speed screen, displays range,
estimated time enroute (ETE), and ground speed (GS). Since
this screen is viewable by turning the LARGE knob only one
detent clockwise from the present position screen, you will
likely find it convenient to switch back and forth between
these two screens often to check your navigation progress.
Moving
Map/Nav
Window
Screen
One of the most attractive features of the Apollo 360 is its
ability to show your navigation progress graphically
against a “moving map” of waypoints. Your present
position is indicated by the airplane symbol near the center
of the display.
Using the moving map screen, you can easily track your
navigation progress as the aircraft travels over or near
waypoints beneath you. The moving map/nav window
screen shows this information in the box at the right side of
the display:

Zoom in or out by turning the SMALL knob. Zooming in
changes the view to enlarge map detail, as if the airplane
symbol was flying at a lower altitude over the map surface.
Similarly, zooming out allows a view of greater distance
around the airplane symbol, as if the airplane was flying
higher over the map. As you zoom in or out, the map scale
changes to show the new distance represented between the
airplane symbol and the top border of the display.
Zooming in close to airport waypoints enables you to see
your orientation in relation to available runways.

The route screen shows either two or four waypoints
(depending on the selected screen) of the current route, as
well as the desired track and distance between the
displayed waypoints. The 1-Leg screen uses larger
characters for easier viewing. The 3-Leg screen provides
more information on a single display.
The Apollo 360 will not be able to match all waypoints that
it receives from the host device with those in it’s internal
database. The unmatched waypoints are classified as
“Remote” waypoints and identified by the designator
“REMO” on the 1-Leg screen. On the 3-Leg screen, these
waypoints are identified by an “R” designation.
Searching
for
Nearest
Waypoints
An important feature of the Apollo 360 is its ability to
locate waypoints closest to your position as you fly.
Should you have to land the aircraft quickly, you can use
this feature to locate a nearby waypoint and quickly
navigate to it.
While navigating, press the GOTO/NRST key to activate
the nearest function and search for waypoints closest to
your present position.

The Waypoint Database
Section 5
The Waypoint Database
Database The Apollo 360 provides an extensive built-in database of
Structure waypoint information to aid the navigator.
Waypoints in the database are divided into 6 categories by
type. This category structure allows you to more easily
search for waypoint information, search for nearest
waypoints, or display waypoints on moving map screens.
The database filters waypoints by these types whenever
you use it, controlling, organizing, and speeding the
delivery of information.
The waypoint types are:
n
Airports (ARPTs)
n
Non-directional beacons (NDBs)
n
Very high frequency omniranges (VORs)
n
Enroute intersections (INTs)
n
User created (USERs)
n
Remote waypoints (REMOs)
The sixth type is Remote (REMO) waypoints. The Apollo
360 will attempt to match received route information with
it’s internal database. It does this by looking for an exact
match with the received identifier and a position match
within 1/100th of a minute of latitude and longitude.
If no match is found, the received identifier and it’s lat/lon
position are stored as a remote waypoint type in the 360
route list.
