The FAA changed the use of the Transponder, AIM, section 4-1-20. It is recommended to be on and set properly to the appropriate
squawk code even when the aircraft is on the ground.
ALL CheckMate single card versions lower than 7.8 should be noted as such in TAXI to set the Transponder to ALT+Sqwk. It should also be noted to keep this setting AFTER LANDING rather than going to STBY.
Also new is the use of ADS-B, although it will not be mandatory until 2020. ADS-B stands for Automatic Dependent
All CheckMates v 7.8 will include ADS-B -- ON in the Pre-Taxi section as well as the FAA changes to the use of the Transponder
while on the ground.
