Lido eRouteManual 4.7 – What’s New?
We are proud to announce the release of Lido/eRouteManual 4.7, only a few weeks after our recent release of Lido/eRouteManual 4.5. With this release, we have introduced three main improvements to our Windows-based application. Read on to find out more!
Our Lido eRouteManual team is constantly working on improving the experience of airlines and their pilots when using Lido eRouteManual in their flight operations. New development is driven directly by the airlines’ needs. A close cooperation with big and small customers in order to identify current needs as well as potential innovations is key. Adapting an agile working method has allowed us to react much faster to market demands and to produce a version which is matching these needs as closely as possible.
“We’re very happy that Lido implemented the configuration of the Lido AMM within the Lido eRouteManual. The arming feature can now be configured separately for different phases of the flight operations process, such as flying and taxiing, which has improved our pilots’ workflow. By adapting an agile work method, Lido has significantly shortened their release cycles, which has already led to faster improvements of the application.”
- Martijn Karssemeijer (Project Manager Advanced Airport Moving Map, Deputy EFB Administrator and Captain A320 at Lufthansa)
The release of Lido eRouteManual 4.7 features three main improvements to our Windows-based charting application: support of the built in GPS for the Microsoft Surface LTE, configuration options for the Lido AMM arming function and Data Center improvements.
Internal GPS Support for Microsoft Surface LTE
Once the application has been configured and the Windows location service has been activated, the internal GPS support allows users to display the own-ship position on terminal charts, enroute and, for airlines which have subscribed to it, the Lido AMM.
Arming Function Improvements
Arming is a function of the Lido AMM which allows the user to automatically switch to the airport moving map whenever the flight reaches specific parameters, for example, when the aircraft is approaching the runway safety zone. With the Lido eRouteManual version 4.7, pilots have the option to configure the timer that will automatically switch the display from Lido AMM to the previously viewed content, for example a SID chart, after a specified amount of time has passed.
Additionally, the airline administrator may disable the arming function completely or for a specific flight event. For example, the arming function can be configured to be active when landing, but not when taxiing to the departure runway.
Data Center Improvements
Our newest version features updates to the Mobile Update service. To alow for an easier integration into various EFB systems and customer configurations, the Lido eRouteManual provides a simple way to download aeronautical data without starting the application.
