ND terrain - is this normal?

Recommended Posts

I had terrain active on approach into Miami tonight, and suddenly I saw this: ngx_NDterrain_bug.png Is that normal?Turning off terrain removes all that green, but flipping it back on just makes it reappear.

Water would display in cyan if you had that option set.

AJ, did you have add-on scenery here?
Nope.All default. And no I don't have 'display water as cyan' turned on.

Yes, it is normal !! Terrain DisplayColor and density vary based on terrain height vs. airplane altitude:• dotted green: terrain from 2,000 feet below to 500 feet (250 feet with geardown) below the airplane’s current altitude

Uh... I still don't see how that's normal. Four reasons why:1. It's not at all dotted, but seems pretty solid to me.2. He's at 10,000 feet3. You can see the highest point shown by the terrain peak numbers is 100 feet.4. It's highly unlikely that it's so extremely flat LOL.Definitely a glitch. P.S. On a mobile- I'd add smileys if I could!

Here is the decoding of the solid green colour on the EGPWS.According to Honeywell's manual, with terrain peaks mode on, solid green means:Shown only when no Red or Yellow terrain areas are within range on the display.Highest terrain not within 500 (250 with gear down) feet of aircraft altitude. Even though this might describe your situation, I highly doubt that the terrain is actually that flat. You should be getting a combination of dotted green and solid green.

Adjusting MFD range to a higher value (+5NM) gets rid of the green for me. I ran across this taking off KMIA RWY36 with range set to 5NM. I'm thinking this is a feature, not a bug.

Just ran into the same issue, all green flying from KCLT to KBOS @ 330 and it showed up.
did it remain on all the time since when it happened to me and after i changed flight levels it disappereared went back to being normal and only if i selected the range to 5 scale if i selected higher it was normal
