About this app

Paraglider Dashboard
Powerful, easy to use app especially for (powered) paragliders which can even be operated while wearing gloves (see below for details).

Paraglider Dashboard calculates wind speed and wind direction while in the air.
Display of wind triangle, tachometer, map with airspaces, variometer and more.
All important flight data is constantly shown in the info boxes.

Includes flight recording and logbook.

Slide through the following Views:
* Windtriangle
* Tachometer
* Map with airspaces and track
* Speed vectors (basis of wind calculation)
* Overview with all views

Always visible:
* Infoboxes with all important flight data
* GPS or pressure sensor based Variometer (optional)

Other features:
* Show past flights in a logbook
* Calculate wind triangle for different wind situations
* Set destination in map by simple long touch or select from a waypoint list
* Display of arrival time at destination taking current wind into account.
* Load airspaces in OpenAir format
* Save track as (unsigned) IGC-file
* Build-in help pages
* Simulation mode to replay IGC-files
* Metric and imperial units
* Altitude display in meter, feet or both alternating

Glove control:

With glove control switched on, you can control the app without using the touch screen (e.g. while wearing gloves).
A menu which is controlled by the proximity sensor allows this trick.
Just hovering the hand over the device lets the menu pop up and scroll through the available functions.
When releasing the hand again, the currently highlighted function is executed.

Why are the permissions needed:
* GPS Location: Now, that's obviously needed.
* Prevent from sleeping: Device should not switch off in midair.
* Internet access: Needed exclusively for Google Maps.
* USB storage: For saving IGC-files when closing app.

Great app that helps to review the flight at home with an IGC viewer. Questions : 1/ When we play a simulation of a flight, is the simulated variometer calculated by GPS or barometric ? I use the barometric sensor only for variometer during a flight (no GPS sensor). It beeps well (up and down), but when I replay the simulation, I can't hear or even see the variometer moving so much. 2/ When I replay a simulation, and the data calculated by the app gives a drop of - 6meters / sec, the variometer does not move of beep. I can share the IGC file if needed 3/ Is there a reason why you don't use the accelerometer from the phone to be even more precise for the variometer ? Thanks !

Please drop me an email. The review function is not well suited for such discussion.

Great app for me as pg beginner. I can log my flights even if the phone is in my pocket and silent. Flights can be reviewed again. Sometimes I get wrong altitude reading, might be a issue of the phones GPS I will review again later in full use.

Great app. Great developer. Sent an email asking a question and received a response quickly with excellent instructions on how to accomplish what I asked. So much information is obtained with this app and at your fingertips while flying. The logs are great snd very useful when reviewing your flight. Thank you.
