    An Electronic Flight Bag showing an ownship referenced airport map, supports the pilot in knowing where the aircraft is with respect to the taxiway and runway structure. However, since the desired route is still implicit, communication errors (e.g. due to misinterpretation) and memorization errors continue to lead to possible navigation error. By integrating the planned route information into the airport map context, the pilot would be supported in knowing where the aircraft is and also where it would have to be. Furthermore, the information can be used by a route conformance monitoring function, to alert the pilot in case of a route deviation, violation of a hold-short instruction, etc. This paper describes the design and initial evaluation of an Electronic Flight Bag with integrated routing, conformance monitoring and runway incursion detection functions.
