Adding Functions to Lido/eRouteManual through our LPC-NG Updater: Flight Track Extraction, Real-Time-Auto-Adjust of display sizes/resolution, SIGMETs display. Tracks are extracted from EFFs or Briefing Packages. Lido-produced EFFs can be loaded automatically, tracks are created and loaded into eRouteManual, while the briefing part of the EFF may go into the Flightfolder application to realize a paperless operation.
The Updater is an application delivered standalone or as Airbus LPC-NG Load, called Plug-in. It downloads, installs, customizes, updates, tracks and delivers missing functions to Lido/eRouteManual. It can also update a complete EFB-suite, as long as 3rd-party manufactures offer useful interfaces. For LPC-NG customers, this application frees the operator from the slow, untraceable updating using LPC-NG Loads, which is still based on the assumption of using USB-media for updating. It opens the possibility to exchange parts of the EFB suite while being able to run and update the existing components.
