To anyone who has the monitoring package installed:
I notice Peter & Del’s story shows that one parameter on the engine display is “Fuel to Destination”. Is this really the fuel required to the final destination in the flight plan, or is it just fuel to the next waypoint?
On a sorta related note, the Garmins and Arnav seem to only show ETE to the next waypoint, and don’t seem to be able to show ETE to the final destination in a flight plan.
Does anyone know of a way to get them to show time to final destination? It would save some mental math gymnastics sometimes.
(Obviously, ground speed [and hence both time and fuel burn] will vary as the heading varies along the route to your destination. But assuming that you are more-or-less going in an approximate straight line to the destination – i.e. no radical turns from opposite the wind to with the wind – it should be possible to use your current groundspeed as an estimate.)
