Anyway to silence the GPWS?

Recommended Posts

Every time I make my final approach to land, the GPWS starts yelling at me...."Terrain....Terrain".  I tried silencing the horn using the "Terrain" button under the "GRND PROX" on the pedestal but it doesn't seem to do anything.  Am I missing something?  Pls help...its driving me crazy!!!

You are not missing anything, this is a bug in the current product.

It's not a bug... if you get that sound, it means that you are within 60 seconds of terrain collision. Math doesn't lie.

 

I don't think so, this would mean it would be on everytime in final approach right? Or are you just being sarcastic?

I don't doubt it, but my question pertained to silencing the aural alert, not the systems ability to detect terrain.  Is there any way to mute the sound?

No, there is not. Hans did however found a bug with mode2A and already fixed it for the next update. Annoying EGPWS callouts that should not be will not be anymore. ;)
