Tcas In Ultimate Traffic

Sat May 07, 2005 11:47 am

Can anyone explain what the numbers on the TCAS mean? When you get a Diamond that says +60 or -22 what does that mean? It can't be at 60,000 ft or that far above you surely?

Gerry,

The +60 is 6,000ft above, the -22 is 2,200ft below.

Thanks for that FIddlesticks. Nothing in the Ultimate Traffic documentation actually explained that. I can start looking for traffic now knowing where to look.
