Temporary Charts and Assigning Charts
This will teach you how you can assign a chart to ARPT, SID, STAR, APPR or a User tile. It will also cover the presentation for temporary charts.
We estimate that this will take 2 minutes to complete.
Assigning a Chart
You can assign charts to preset categories within the application making it easy to go direct to the chart rather than searching through a list of charts.
Tile assignments and per-chart viewing options are saved until you change them, change the chart or reset the charts on the route.
You can reset all the charts, tile assignments, and options by selecting a new aerodrome in the DEP workspace or by closing and restarting Charts+ app and following the prompts to reset.
Tile categories determine which charts are available for assignment to a tile. Pre-set categories cannot be changed.
Let's go and assign some charts to our ribbon tile.

Click the SID cell.
Click the AFRIC 5H RWY 14L, 14R 30-5 list item.
Click the APPR cell.
Click the ILS RWY 14R 50-4 list item.
Click the USER cell.
You have added three charts to the three different categories ARPT, SID, and APPR. We will now have a look at assigning to the USER tiles. Assigning to the USER tiles will mean that you can pick any of the available categories to use.
Click the RADAR list item.
You can select which category you want to assign to the tile. Let's have a look at the charts under Radar.
Click the RADAR MINIMUM ALTITUDE 20-1 list item.
After your selection you will notice that your tile changes will reflect your selection.
- Temporary Charts
Temporary charts might be on your list of charts to choose from.
The charts are marked as temporary with highlighted yellow in the list of charts, on the menu button and on the top banner as indicated by the arrows.
