GliderLink

GliderLink helps you and your friends soar as a team, sharing information about your location and the lift you've found. The app shows the location of nearby gliders on a moving map, along with their altitude and vertical speed. No more confusion on the radio trying to communicate to others where you are. With this app, all it takes is a glance. This enables team soaring, and increases safety by helping you be aware of where other gliders are. It is also useful for lead/follow cross-country mentoring.

GliderLink is built on goTenna, which allows you to exchange data with other pilots, peer-to-peer, without a cellular connection. IMPORTANT: GliderLink requires a goTenna Mesh device, not the original goTenna. GliderLink is not made by goTenna Inc. You can save $20 by buying a goTenna Mesh using this link: https://www.talkable.com/x/IgisuY

GliderLink is mostly geared toward sailplanes, but can be useful for paragliders and hang gliders as well.

GliderLink currently only works in the United States, but support for other countries is coming soon.

What's New

Will send data to future versions of XCSoar and Tophat that will display GliderLink traffic. Fixed a bug that prevented this from working. Also fixed a rare bug that could cause another glider's callsign to not be displayed.
