One of my favorite tools in our cockpit is ADS-B In, especially in the traffic pattern. Knowing the heading and relative closures speeds can be very helpful. The problem, as many have discovered, is that it takes more than a few swipes and button presses to get the pertinent information on our displays. So I am getting better at this but a better solution would be to have it set up well in advance. Here is how to do that.
If you want to learn more about this, check the Gulfstream Symmetry Guide, §2B-09-10 and look for "CDTI" which stands for Cockpit Display of Traffic Information. But for now, here is a quick how to guide.
This is one of those things that is easier from a DU, but here is how to do it from a TSC.
You can find the Dispay Control page from some of the Phase of Flight pages as a top button or from the main menu. Once you are there you need to hit the "Map Mgmt" button so that it will show "Map Layers" as shown here:
The traffic button brings up another page:
Flight ID will show you who you are up against and the trend vector is the line in front of the traffic symbol. This will also bring up your closure speed the with the triangles pointed at each other for closure and against each other for distancing. You might also want to select "Surf Traffic" if headed to a busy airport where knowing the surface traffic will be of use.
