XC Guide

XC Guide helps pilots and retrieve drivers track each other using these systems:

Open Glider Network (OGN)
FlyMaster ®
Livetrack24 ®
Garmin inReach ®
XC Globe

FANET live-tracking and text messaging requires an 868MHz LoRa module with GxAirCom firmware.

FLARM ® can be received and transmitted with an XC Tracer or GxAirCom module.

General Aviation traffic using ADS-B can also be displayed when linked to a SkyEcho2 ADS-B transceiver or using the OpenSky ® service.

The main App features are:

1) A Flight Computer indicating altitude, ground speed, bearing, climb/sink rate, glide angle, wind direction, time, flight duration and distance from takeoff.

Barometric pressure can be obtained either from an internal sensor or via a Bluetooth XC-Tracer ®, BlueFly vario or MipBip+ vario.

2) A pilot list, showing their photo (wing), where they are, their tracker type and status messages etc. Contacts permission is requested if the integrated contact features are used.

3) A map showing other pilots, retrieve buses, airspace, way-points, thermal hot-spots, flight trails plus safety and retrieve messages. FANET weather reports and thermals appear on the map automatically.

4) Navigation tool to manage waypoints and tasks.

5) Thermal assistant widget on the map.

6) Rain radar widget on the map.

7) Competition race tasks. Tasks are fully compatible with the new PG-Race.aero service. Camera permission is requested when scanning QR codes, for easy task sharing.

Audible warnings alert you to 'SOS' and 'Need Retrieve' messages, airspace proximity, XC TRACER FLARM ® collision warnings, and new FANET messages.

Flights are logged as IGC and KML files, and can be replayed.

IGC files from XC Guide are accepted by FAI/CIVL and verified by the online validation service. They are also accepted by XContest.

XC Guide can automatically send an email to your safety contacts when you take off and land.

Detailed help in English, Spanish, French, German, Polish, Russian, Italian, Portuguese, Hindi and Chinese is included in the App.

Note: Since Version 300, XC Guide folders are located in:
If un-installing XC Guide, all these folders are deleted automatically by the operating system. So please backup important files, such as your flight logbook and IGC flight logs, beforehand.
