- Flight Gear
- Alti-Vario GPS
Info like speed over the ground, glide ratio, GPS altitude, flying direction in degree plus an arrow, distance from the takeoff... are available.
Can be connected to XCSOAR, XCtrack... on Android, or kobo... If you want support for other software just ask and I will implement it, it's easy.
Just above the battery icon, there is a small empty circle… it will be filled black after 3 minutes if at least 7 satellites are used. At that moment the waypoint of the takeoff is memorized, DFT distance from the takeoff is shown in one menu. After the circle is filled the barometric altitude will be adjusted to the GPS altitude if you have set ACBG (altitude correction by GPS) to ON (will be corrected only 1 time... baro altitude is used to calculate the glide ratio...)
The GPS is powered by a special lithium polymer battery usable till 80 °C. Run time on a full charge =15 hrs, weight 84 grams and the size is 100mm x 59mm x 17mm.. It charges in 3 hrs using a micro USB cable (the one used for mobile phones). The shell is made of ABS and rubber on the sides, so you can have a nice grip on it.
- Firmware upgradeable by USB without the need for driver installation.
- It comes delivered inside a nice fined metal packaging.
- Adhesive Velcro and Velcro strap are provided to set the instrument on the paraglider risers or wherever you prefer.
- Many colors are available and the choice is growing and changing according to the request of the customers.
NOTE: The GPS track cannot be saved in the instrument... There isn't an SD card on the PCB. If you want to save the GPS track you can connect the instrument to XCSOAR or XCtrack installed on your mobile or on Kobo, among other applications that will record the flight as an IGC file or other formats
