The Start 1 Page is initially displayed
following FMS startup.
(3) Navigational Chart Datums. The normal
global chart datum is WGS-84. The current system
datum is indicated on the Start 1 page.
(4) Initializing Configuration Functions.
(a) Time Annunciation. On the Start 1
page, select the UTC DISPLAY line select to enable a
continuous display of actual UTC time on the
annunciation line. Time will be continuously displayed
on the annunciation line when enabled. When higher

(b) Freeze Position. When FREEZE is
selected on the Start 1 page, the position on the first
line of the page will be frozen. Typically, the GPS
position as displayed on this page will continuously
change as the GPS solution updates, even when
stationary on the ground. When frozen, the position
can be copied to other pages as desired or used to
begin initialization of the GPS receiver.
manually at line 1, left or right, the position is
automatically frozen for use. To unfreeze, select the
freeze line and select again.
2 The position frozen on the first line
is used by the system as waypoint 00 when loading a
flight plan for active use and as the starting position of
the model aircraft function. If waypoint 00 is not at the
desired starting position when initializing the system,
enter the desired position on the Start 1 page and
either load a new flight plan from the alternate flight
plan or erase the flight plan. The start position will
then be inserted as waypoint 00 in the flight plan.
(c) Erasing System Data. On the Start
3 page, two selections are available to erase the active
flight plan and the user waypoint and markpoint lists.
The erase function requires confirmation by the
operator, and when confirmed will erase data from the
CDUs memory. Erasure does not affect the flight
plans, user waypoint and markpoint lists, or radio
presets on the data cartridge.
(d) FMS Guidance Configuration. On
the Navigation Configuration 1 page, the current mode
of flight can be inspected by the pilot or overridden at
pilot request. Refer to Figure 3C-30 and Table 3C-22.
