Hi, I been using the app for a while now, almost a year, and is the best of the kind out there right now. I can easily help my self to center a thermic current, or just to check my speed. It does all right. There is only one problem, when it goes without antenna reception, which in my case its really often, the file date goes to GTM time zone, which makes a lot of troubles to download the files later into my computer. I'm based on New Zealand, so some time I need need to wait for 2 days to download the tracks.
Good toy but NOT a replacement for dedicated altimeter-vario-gps unit for paraglider/hang glider pilots. The programming is good, The layout is Fine. This app is good for kids to play with in an elevator. Good altimeter and speedometer BUT I ran it side by side with a Flytec and FlyMaster and this app fails in sensitivity and precision needed for real flying. I tested it in flight and with car rides up and down some hills. This app's vario lags, always. Often beeps false "up" when I know that the road is flat and real vario units stay quiet. Sure... One can probably pair it with external Baro-sensor but that increases price and complexity to the point of little practical use... Compass and wind direction and speed features lag/fail too. Not to mention the vario sound is too quiet even on loudest settings. PLEASE, for real flying Just get a real vario-gps unit (you can get one used for a couple hundred bucks) and save yourself the frustration of missing thermals or worse - landing downwind because the app messed up.
Doesn't adjust GPS altitude to MSL, and relies on Legacy menu button. I have to force close to quit
Nice, but... I like the looks of this app and I know it works in flight but, as I have it installed on a Galaxy Tab S2 & not a phone, is there another way to access the menu? When I long press the left button on the tablet all I gets is a message saying that split screen is not supported. I need to change the display from metric to statute units.
Excellent I wish there was a manual or something because it took me a while and a random post on paragliding forum to find out why it wouldn't record my flights. Sensor has to be set accordingly with your phone. As for my s5, a set of 38 works well. I wish also it could be possible to edit/delete/organize the tracks, as it's the main function I'm using and it works effortless. Thanks for this free app !!
xiaomi mi5 barometer works now ..a little slow to start n seems to wait for the gps to acquire sats first. great little app for week ends,paragliding activities . thanks
