Terrain files for the AF-5000 Series are broken into three chunks. Lower resolution terrain database of the entire world to augment the regional high resolution databases. This database is installed at the factory, but may need updating or re-installation. An example would be if you can not see terrain when zoomed out.

Use the links below only if your screen has invalid data or have updated from a version of software older then V10.00.00. Each database must be loaded individually on each display in your aircraft.
