Thank you John,>>TA - is traffic advisory>TARA - is traffic and resolution advisory>That is just what I asked about. Practically this means:- use TA mode to see trafic around me in the flight;- STBY otherwise.>... more info can be found in the manual on pg 22Unfortunately this manual page explains symbols on ND only, TCAS modes are not described in the manual at all.Thank you again,Victor
