Title: Optical center
Post by: ben on October 21, 2012, 01:20:25 PM
Since the CN MFD case is asymmetrical in width and can be mounted north/south or south/north, how do you determine the optical center? The MFD screen prints I've measured don't even show the glider icon in the center of the glass. When mounted behind the panel, I would prefer the glider icon on the panel centerline.

Will the CN MFD display both in portrait and landscape?

Thanks for your customer service.

CN MFD displays portrait mode only.  The display can be inverted (menu / setup / tools / invert screen) if for some reason you need to install the device "upside down".  In track up mode, the glider is located offset towards the bottom of the screen, thereby giving you more map space for what's ahead.  The glider is centered on the screen left/right.  See for example screen shots here http://www.clearnav.net/main/cn-tips-TAT.html (http://www.clearnav.net/main/cn-tips-TAT.html)
