Avidyne’s CMax Electronic Approach Chart software, which includes Jeppesen’s worldwide coverage of airport diagrams, is now standard on all new EX500 and EX5000 Multi-Function Displays (MFD), the companies said Thursday. Avidyne said it will also enable current EX500 and EX5000 MFD customers to upgrade for a fraction of the previous cost for the CMax option. “Avidyne and Jeppesen both recognize the incredible situational awareness benefit of electronic geo-referenced airport diagrams and charts in the cockpit,” said Thomas Wede, Jeppesen senior vice president and general manager, Aviation.  “The ability to see your aircraft position directly on the chart dramatically reduces the potential for errors while taxiing.”  With CMax, customers can gain access to Jeppesen’s electronic worldwide airport diagram service on their EX500 or EX5000 MFD. CMax is available for $499 as an upgrade from Avidyne for existing EX500 and EX5000 MFDs.
