Victor’s Vectors: FliteCharts or ChartView Part II
In the last Victor’s Vectors post, we talked about the differences of the FliteCharts compared to the Garmin ChartView powered by Jeppesen for the GPSMAP 696/695 and the aera 796/795. Since then, I have had a couple of customers ask an interesting follow up question that I thought I would cover in this post. The question comes from customers that fly internationally and want to use FliteCharts for approaches in the US and ChartView for approaches in other countries. They asked if it is possible to use ChartView and FliteCharts at the same time. Unfortunately, this is not an easy yes or no answer, but I'll try to explain. When the portable is unlocked for the ChartView feature, it will default to using those approach plates over the FliteCharts. That means that as long as the SD card has the Jeppesen approach plates on it and is in the unit, the device will use those plates and ignore the Garmin FliteCharts. However the FliteCharts database is internal to the GPS and can still be used by ejecting the SD card from the GPS. This will cause the GPS to revert to using and displaying FliteCharts. So for pilots flying internationally with the Jeppesen charts for countries outside the US and FliteCharts for the US, they would need to simply eject the SD card when entering the US to be able to use the FliteCharts data. I should also mention that Jeppesen has subscription options that cover the US, as well as countries outside the US. I hope that clarifies how you can use both databases if you want, but leave us a comment if you still have questions about the approach plates.
