So is it an entirely different weather radar in the nose or does it derive its data from the same source that the NAV display CRT does?
Same ol one, same as in the 88, 76/75, 738, all of them. In all of those models, you can superimpose the weather on the ND in map mode, but you still have the CRT in the center- it contains the gain, tilt, brightness, etc knobs. Just because the -11 is all glass (same as the 738), it still has this.
As for the EVSI, I'm sure it's because DL
doesn't (didn't) keep an extra supply of older analog VSI's w/o TCAS- plus if all of my displays blanked out, I wouldn't mind having that info.
