The Navigation


In contrast to conventional road name signage, which has to be placed on the actual corner of a road or junction to identify place or direction, the display's digital name system works virtually, and therefore flexibly. It does not rely on physical location and can show information in advance.
Once a new road is chosen, the computer offers multiple types of information about the location, e.g. whether the rooad is open or closed.



Left-side route head-up map:
Shows the current geographical position and chosen route marked green. When landing on a building, the map zooms in to the relevant location.

Placed over the left-side map. Shows the destination road or building.

Road pattern:
Placed on the left and right sides, at right angles to the lane, the first and largest road name marks the next cross-road. The smaller road names in the background tell the order of crossings to come. The names on the left side on top of the cross-roads mark the pilot's road and are shown in the pilot's direction.

Once a new Airway is chosen, the computer shows a green arrow, and the respective Airway is highlighted in green.

Crossing Preview:
The orange and blue indication illustrates the exit. The new Airway course lies on top of the current one.

Bookmarks (Small building items):
Placed over the right traffic head up map, these items denote personal route reminders (bookmarks, camera shots) or travel relevant information, e.g. tourism, arts.

Guided Tours:
The onboard navigation system offers different options of flying mode. Discover the city in tourist mode and follow the colored routes.

Switching to automatic mode, see your course ahead indicated by a line only.

The P indication shows an offered parking site (Height indication and parking site overview).

The Touchscreen allows to individualize the HUD: i.e. choosing bookmarks, taking snapshots, traveling tourist mode or changing colors.
