Albuquerque, NM, January 17, 2012: Aspen Avionics is pleased to announce the availability of a new terrain database from Jeppesen for Aspen’s Evolution Flight Display product line. This new database improves the resolution of the terrain data used in the Evolution System and offers an improved customer experience for the Evolution MFD, notably in markets outside of the United States. In addition, this database resolves some limitations experienced by some Evolution Synthetic Vision (ESV) customers, and expands the ESV operation area beyond the borders of the continental United States to provide full worldwide ESV coverage.
The one-time terrain database upgrade is free for Aspen customers with active Jeppesen data subscriptions and will automatically appear in their Jeppesen Service Update Manager (JSUM) account beginning January 16, 2012. A customer memo has been sent to all registered Aspen customers and dealers with details on how to access the updated terrain file.
