Oudie 3
Introduction
Oudie 34.50
Company Naviter is dedicated to solving glider pilot's problems and Oudie 3 is one of the answers in this
challenge. It´s intended use is helping para-glider, hang glider and other pilots navigate during leisure,
cross country and competition flights.
Oudie 3 is a Personal Gliding Assistant which aims at providing everything a glider pilot needs in one
simple package. For this reason Oudie 3 have big bright sun readable screen, excellent vario and a large
battery which is powerful enough for more than twelve hours of flying. Vario and Navigation software,
maps and airspaces for Oudie 3 are already preinstalled. You can literally take it out of the box and
launch.
Oudie 3 works great in combination with other Naviter products such as SeeYou for the PC, Soaring Spot
and others. It was designed to answer the question which was most frequently posted to us as "Why do
you not build the device for paraglider and hang glider pilots?"
Naviter is a Slovenian based software company. We focus on highly featured and easy to use software
for glider pilots. The needs of paraglider, hang glider and sailplane pilots worldwide are what we are
interested in.

Turning Oudie 3 on and off
To turn the Oudie 3 ON press the power button for 1 second. In order to prevent turning on the device by
accident you have to press the confirm button in five seconds.
To turn the Oudie 3 OFF, press the power button for 1 second while the device is running then choose
the desired action:
Power Off: will stop the navigation and turn off the device. You should do this before long term
storage. Battery should be at least 50% full before you store it for a long time.
Sleep: will turn off the screen, GPS, Bluetooth and power down the processor. The navigation will be
put on hold and the battery will drain very slightly. After switching back on you are ready for navigation
in just a few seconds. You should use the Sleep function when you are waiting to launch and want to
conserve the battery for example. It's ok to use Sleep over night as well. The battery drain is
negligible.
Cancel: will do nothing and return focus to navigation.
To reboot press the reset button on the back of the device.

Upgrading firmware
Upgrading the firmware on the Oudie 3 is as simple as downloading one file from www.oudie3.com,
saving it in the root of your Oudie's 3Resident Flash memory and resetting the Oudie 3.
If you need more instructions this is the whole procedure:
1. Download the Update executable from www.oudie3.com to your PC (or directly to Oudie, then skip
to #5):
2. Connect your Oudie to PC using the USB cable which was supplied in the box
3. Once connected, a PC icon is displayed on Oudie and new removable disk is available on the PC
(named TFAT)
4. Copy UpdateOudie.exe to the root of your Oudie drive (TFAT). Warning! Make sure it’s name not
“UpdateOudie (1).exe” or something. Browsers and Operating Systems want to interfere sometimes. File
name must be UpdateOudie.exe
5. Reset Oudie (or press and hold the On/Off key for 1 second and select “Power off” then power it
back on by holding the button for another second).
6. Wait until it boots into an Update dialog box
7. Press “Update” and wait until the process is finished

Connecting to the GPS
When the navigation device is turned on for the first time or after a long period of non-use, initialising the
integrated GPS receiver can take up to 40 minutes. Optimal conditions for problem-free and fast GPS
receptions are: having a clear view of the open sky, no high buildings immediately close by and
remaining in one place until the GPS position has been determined. The Navbox 82 on the upper side of
the map will show you the GPS status (by default - you can change the navboxes later).
Map 36 with symbols
This is where you will be looking for information all the time. You can do many things on the Map page:
You can move the map by dragging it. It will return to the position of the glider after 10 seconds
automatically or by pressing the Map orientation symbol.
You can move the Navboxes 82 around the map to place then where you need them.
You can also tap on any symbol to bring up additional dialogs for:
. Map orientation 54 by tapping on upper(North) arrow,
. Wind 71 by tapping on the Wind vector,
. Map zoom 57 by tapping on the Zoom button,
. Pan mode 54 is a special mode where you can freely move around the map to explore some details
along the course.
. Move the glider (lower arrow 41 ) if you tap on the glider.

.
Tapping on a waypoint on the map gives you a list of Airspaces 76 and Waypoints 77 . Waypoints are
sorted on distance from the tap. This is a quick way to select a waypoint from a group of waypoints.
The Navboxes 82 are what you will use to display the information you need. Be at waiting for Start gate,
Final glide, Navigation, Optimization or another issue, use Menu > Navboxes to select which items you
want displayed.
Command bar 44
holds 2 shortcuts to specific actions. In addition to the Command bar, actions are also assigned to any
hardware buttons on the Pocket PC. You can select which buttons do which actions through Menu >
Settings > Commands 96 .
The default actions for software buttons from left to right (Command bar) are:
. Zoom 57
. Menu 50
Try the functions of these buttons.

Using vario
Oudie 3 features an excellent vario. It is the best vario you can find on the market. It is extremely
accurate and responsive at the same time.
You can control the audio settings of the vario on the Menu > Settings > Vario 105 page. We went into a
lot of trouble fine tuning the vario sound. Make sure to try the default settings in the air before you
change them.
You can control the size and position of the Vario Symbol on the map. Simply drag it on the screen if you
wish to move it to a new position. Go to Menu > Settings > Symbols > Vario 87 to change it size and
appearance. You can choose from a few different shapes for the vario, its transparency, size and more.
2.6
Copying files to Oudie 3
Copying files on the Oudie 3 similar to Upgrading the firmware 6 . Just copy files in the root of your
Oudie's 3 Resident Flash memory when connected to PC with the supplied USB cable.
If you need more instructions this is the whole procedure:

Learning to use Oudie 3
There are two recommended ways to learn how to use Oudie 3 before you get airborne.
File replay
This is by far the most efficient way to learn Oudie 3 software. What it does is it replays an already flown
flight and enables you to see the data you would have been looking at if you had Oudie 3 with you on the
particular flight.
In order to set this up, copy some of your flights from the desktop PC to your device. Then go to Menu >
Settings > Input 94 , then change input to "File". Press the "..." button and choose a flight you wish to
replay. Now use the buttons to change Waypoints, MacCready and pages. Tap on the screen to see what
happens and setup Navboxes to what you want them to be. Note that you can setup Navboxes 82
separately for each of the two Map pages.
Simulator
In the Simulator input mode, you can move the glider freely even without a prerecorded flight which
enables you to go places you haven't visited in the air yet. To move the glider, tap on it, then drag a line
out of the glider in the direction you want it to move. The longer the line, the faster it will go in the
specified direction.
By learning how to use Oudie 3 software on the ground you will have more time to think about gliding,
task and scenery in the air. It is warmly recommended.

Using Profiles with Oudie 3
If you feel no need to use more than one set of Navboxes
this feature and go read the next chapter.

82
or fly more than one type of gliders ignore
14
Oudie 3
If however you fly several types of gliders at different
locations you are likely to be fed up with changing the
polar, terrain, waypoint and airspace files each time
before the flight. Profiles were added in Oudie 3
software. You can have separate setups for each of
your gliders or type of flying. Here's how it works.
1. When you first ran Oudie 3, a Default profile was
created. Anything you have changed in the application
was stored to this profile. Now comes a day when you
fly the another glider with a significantly different polar
than the one you have used previously. To avoid
entering the polar, header and hardware data each
time you go fly this glider, you may create a new profile
by going to Menu > Settings > Miscellaneous 102 and
click the "Add Profile..." button.
© 2003 - 2013 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Getting started
15
2. You get to choose to either
. Copy current profile (which makes an exact copy of
your current settings),
. Create a new profile (which creates a copy of the
default settings).
You may give the new profile a name according to what
you are going to use it for. Be it "RACE", "XC" or "Hike
and fly glider".
© 2003 - 2013 ... Naviter d.o.o.
16
Oudie 3
3. Next time you start Oudie 3 you will have two (or
more) profiles to choose from. You have 10 seconds to
select a profile. If you do nothing, the profile you used
last is loaded.
4. After you have loaded the profile for the first time
you will want to set it up according to your preferences.
Here is a handful of settings you will probably want to
change before use:
Links to Terrain, Airspace and Waypoint files 97
Pilot name and Glider type settings 99
Navboxes for Map1 82
Navboxes for Map2 82

How Airspace warning works
Avoiding forbidden airspace is often just as important as navigating in general. It can however be much
trickier than finding the right valley since the airspace structure is very abstract and often complicated.
Oudie 3 will be your best friend if you use the whole potential of what it's got to offer.
© 2003 - 2013 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Getting started
17
1. Airspace Warning
The first stage - let's name it the Airspace Warning - is
often merely informative. The screen will display an
orange banner at the top of the page and highlight the
airspaces you are about to encounter. It will also
display a line with distances from your position to the
nearest position of each airspace you are about to
encounter. And it will beep briefly.
You get to choose to turn the airspace warning off for
the airspace which is listed in the banner. You can turn
it off for either
. Today - until next takeoff,
. 5 minutes - note that this number is user selectable
through Menu > Settings > Warnings,
. Ignore - for as long as you are flying towards it it
won't beep again.
© 2003 - 2013 ... Naviter d.o.o.
18
Oudie 3
2. Airspace Alarm
Once you come too close for comfort an airspace alarm
will sound. It gives you a red banner at the top where
you can read all about the airspace in question and it
will highlight the airspace in question. It will also draw
the line to the closest point of the airspace and it will
give you a sound alarm continuously.
You still get to choose to turn this alarm off for:
. Today - until next takeoff,
. 5 minutes - user selectable in Menu > Settings >
Warnings,
. Mute - continue to display everything but stop the
sound alarm.
After you have pressed Mute you can still Ignore this
airspace alarm.
3. Helpful Navboxes
There are three airspace related navboxes which will give you a good overview of the airspace situation
if you are familiar with what they are displaying:
1. "Nearest airspace - Horizontally" gives you the distance from your position to the nearest position of an
airspace where you are not horizontally inside (i.e. you are not below this airspace yet).
2. "Horizontally nearest airsapce - Altitude" gives you the altitude difference towards the horizontally
nearest airspace. The altitude difference is negative if you are below horizontally nearest airsapce. It is
positive if you are above and "Inside" if you are about to hit the lateral borders of the airspace in
question.
3. "Nearest airspace - Vertically" gives you the altitude difference towards the airspace above or below
the glider. The value is negative if you are below the airspace. It is positive if you are above, "Inside" if
you are already inside an airspace and "N/A" if there is no airspace at your location.
In addition to the airspaces there is also a very useful Action which can be assigned to any Navbox. It is
the action "Highlight nearest airspace" and it is assigned to the "Nearest airspace - Horizontally" by
default. If you touch a Navbox which has this action assigned to it, Oudie 3 will highlight the airspace in
question. It will link the glider with the airspace and display the distance from the glider to the airspace.

4. Screen taps
In addition to all the above you may tap anywhere on the screen and then choose "Airspace" to quickly
access the list of airspaces at the location of the tap. With this list you can quickly change the visibility of
the airspaces or simply get an overview of what lies ahead. You can also change the properties of an
airspace such as lower or upper limit.
With this information airspace navigation should be easy and understandable even in a rather complex
airspace environment.

Entering and flying the tasks
This is a tutorial about entering the task in Oudie 3. We have had the privilege to look over the shoulder
many impressively experienced pilots who have found a very difficult way to enter a task into Oudie3.
Please read this because entering the task is just that - enter the waypoint names, set the times (Gate,
Start speed section, End speed section, Task deadline) and Sector type (Line, Cylinder, FAI sector or
Assigned area). No setting up of observation zones is neccessary. Tutorial will focus on entering the
demo task. The default one in the evaluation version of Oudie 3. The task will become a 99,3 km Race to
goal in the south-eastern part of the Alps (Slovenia). Both Racing, badge and record tasks as well as
Assigned Area tasks are covered.
Always start from the scratch. Menu > Task > Tools > Clear task:

Make sure the first line in the empty list is selected (if you didn't touch the screen after clearing the task,
then it is already selected). Then press the "Keyb" (as in Keyboard) button:

Start typing and you will notice that the waypoint name auto-completes while you are typing (note that
the keyboard characters which do not make sense are disabled while you type):

Oudie 3
Note that B and 0 keys were pressed while "1164" was auto-completed. If you know your waypoint is in
alphabetical vicinity of the currently auto-completed name of the waypoint, you may also use the "<<"
and ">>" buttons on the full screen keyboard to advance the waypoint names alphabetically. Once you
have found the waypoint you were looking for, press OK.
You are now back in the List view of the Task dialog. Tap on the line below the start point. The line
becomes blue:

Oudie 3
Note that after entering "A" and "2" the suggested waypoint name is "A28089". If not "A28089" - Press
">>" once and you are now at "A28089". Press OK.
Repeat this procedure until all waypoints including the finish are entered quickly:

Start and re-start the task
To make a re-start. Change the target waypoint back to start point. The quickest way to do it is to open
the Task dialog, select start point and press Goto. Statistics will be reset, when you cross the start line
again.
Flying the task
To navigate during the task use all of the featues that are made available to you through Oudie 3
software:
. Map pages 36 to see where you are,
. Navboxes 82 to see the flight parameters you are interested in,
. Statistics 48 to see what you have done,
. Airspace warning 43 to keep yourself out of trouble,
. Goto dialog 59 to find nearest airports etc.

Final glide
Here's a suggestion. Flying final glides is the most comfortable when you use the Required L/D and
Current L/D navboxes 82 . What they do is they show the required L/D to the finish line and current L/D
you are doing at the moment. You are on glide slope when Current L/D is higher than Required L/D. The
calculation already includes reserve altitude. The nice part is that it is insensible of the MC setting, glider
polar, wind calculation etc. All of them can be wrong when you try to math through the glider polar.
Current L/D however is pragmatic - it tells you what you are doing. Required L/D is pragmatic as well. It
tells you what you should be doing. If Current L/D is higher than the Required one you are doing good. If
it looks like you can keep going like that, you are doing great.
Have fun making those final glides!
Go fly the task and enjoy!!!
SAVING TASK FOR LATER USE
It is always wise to make sure you have all the data securely stored in case of an unintended outage of
the device. Start from the main screen and select Menu > Next > Save Settings > tick the "Save profile"
and "Save waypoints and tasks" checkboxes (if they are both enabled), then tap "Yes".

Flying with the FAI Triangle Assistant
FAI Triangle Assistant helps you complete the largest possible FAI Triangle.
You don't have to do much to use the FAI Triangle Assistant. Just turn it on and fly is how we tried to
design the assistant. Here's how it works.
Turning the FAI Assistant on or off follows the same phylosophy as toggling the Map, Waypoints,
Airspace, Navboxes etc. It is controlled through the Display Options 52 dialog.
Flying the Free FAI Triangle task
Once the FAI Area is on, you don't have to do much. You are of course required to know at least roughly
which direction you would like to fly to fly a triangle. The larger the triangle you are attempting, the more
you will know where to go. FAI Triangle Assistant will simply follow what you are doing. As you fly the
first leg it won't yet know which way you are going to fly. That is not a problem. The FAI Area will be
© 2003 - 2013 ... Naviter d.o.o.
30
Oudie 3
drawn on one side of the first leg. If you would like it to be on the other side, simply tap inside the area
and it will rotate (provided that "Rotate on click" is enabled in the settings, which - by default - it is).
Once you have turned your first waypoint, simply continue to fly towards your other waypoint (or rather a
larger area where you would like to turn your second waypoint). As soon as the triangle you have flown
is deep enough the FAI Area changes. It is not drawn on the longest leg anymore. Instead it is drawn on
the last leg you have flown. That means it is showing you the way towards the area where you will be
able to turn your second waypoint and allow your whole flight to be an FAI triangle.
When you are near your second waypoint you will appreciate some help from the FAI Triangle
optimization navbox, which is available through the list of Navboxes 82 . Place it visibly on the screen to
know exactly how large the triangle will be if you can finish it home. After you are happy with what you
have done in your second area, head home. The FAI Triangle optimization should not change anymore,
it's just about getting home.
The above example focused on an FAI Triangle which has been started from one of its corners. Flying a
triangle with the start on the leg is no different. The only difference is that the second point you turn
represents the first point from the above example and the third one is the final one from which you fly
home.
Finishing the task
An FAI Triangle is not finished unless you fly back to your start point. One finish fix within 1 km radius
from another fix that occured before turning the 1st waypoint of the optimized triangle is required to
finish the task. It may be a single fix if you started your triangle in one of its corners. It is a whole series
of fixes between soaring begin and the first waypoint if you started the triangle on one of its legs.
FAI Triangle Assistant also helps you identify the exact course to fly by always highlighting a 1km
diameter circle around the closest available finish fix.
Rotating the area
Sometimes the flight requires much more thinking than the above examples. You may wish to know if
your current leg is long enough already to cover Town X with the FAI Area of your current flight. For this
reason you will want to rotate the FAI area from its current position. It can hardly be easier to do simply tap on the FAI Area on the moving map and it will rotate. If you are on your first leg (or not far
enough on the second), it will rotate left/right around the first leg. Once you are far enough on the
second leg to make it obvious which way you are going to fly the triangle, it will rotate around the legs.
All this provided that "Rotate on click" is enabled in the settings, which - by default - it is.
The FAI Area icons may also be placed on the Command bar if you wish to have quick and constant
access to them in flight. There are options for toggling the FAI Area and Rotating the FAI Area under
Menu > Settings > Commands 96 .
FAI Triangle Assistant preferences
If you would like to influence the look and feel of the FAI Triangle Assistant you may do so through Menu
> Settings > OLC & FAI Area 80 dialog.
Example shows kilometer lines for Triangles between 80 - 120 km. If you fly into the violet area, the
triangle will be an FAI triangle.

Using Thermal Assistant
Thermal assistant is a feature of Oudie 3 which should help you get centered in a lift more quickly if you
decide to follow its instructions.
Thermal assistant analyses the lift in your thermal. It calculates the average and follows how strongly the
vario values change in each circle.
It uses three ways to catch your attention:
1. You may choose between Bubbles or a Zoomed map which shows the best part of the lift. Bubbles
are disabled by default, zooming in is enabled.
© 2003 - 2013 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Getting started
33
2. Thermal Assistant audio warning goes off if variance is large enough (see Settings - Thermal 89 ).
It whistles a selected amount of seconds or degrees (see Settings - Thermal 89 ) before the glider will
reach the same part of the circle where maximum lift was reached in the previous circle.
3. Thermal assistant graphics is displayed if variance for displaying the thermal assistant is large
enough (see Settings - Thermal 89 ). The size of the bubbles represents the amount of lift. The color of
the bubble is relative to the MacCready setting. Red is better thank MC, blue is more than 0.5m/s (1kts)
less than MC, yellow is in between. The arrow is pointing towards the maximum of the lift in the previous
circle while the length of the arrow is how "strong" the advice is to move your circle elsewhere. The
arrow is longer if variance is larger.

Your job:

. make use of Assistant's
suggestions.
Assistant's job:
. analyze the thermal,
. find the strongest lift in
the circle,
. make audio and visual
suggestions.
We were not trying to
develop a Thermal
Wizard, just an Assistant
for the times when you
are tired or have better
things to do than focus
100% on the thermal. It
will only sound a bell if the
thermal varies significantly
in strength.
If you would like to display Thermal assistant regardless of the current vario variation, feel free to
navigate to the Menu and press the Thermal Assistant button. To close the Thermal Assistant, just tap
the screen anywhere.
We will be happy if you continue to enjoy soaring and if you never find the need to use the Thermal
Assistant at all :-)

. North Up where top of the display is always true North,
. East Up where true East is at the top of the screen,
. South Up where true South is at the top of the screen,
. West Up where true West is at the top of the screen,
. Goal Up sets up the display so, that the point you are navigating to is always at the top of the screen,
. Track Up puts your current track towards the top of the screen,
. Heading Up puts your current heading towards the top of the screen. Heading is calculated by
subtracting Wind vector from the Track vector.
. Pan mode is a special mode where you can freely move around the map, zoom in, zoom out and
rotate the map to explore some details along the course.
To move around the map in Pan mode you simply drag your finger over the screen and the map will
follow your finger. To rotate the map drag your finger in the bottom 10% of the screen left/right. The
map will again follow your finger, but this time it will rotate around the center point of the screen. If you

Three filters are available in order for you to organize your waypoints in a more readable way:
. Alphabetical filter
. Filter by file
Alphabetical filter allows you to simply enter the waypoint's name. As soon as the list of waypoints is less
than the length of the screen filter closes and you may choose the waypoint that you were looking for
from the list that matches the filter you have entered. The screenshot below left displays such filter with
the letters "MAL" already entered. The result is a list of all waypoints that begin with MAL (see

4. If needed, adjust Direction and Speed with the buttons in the lower part of the display,
5. tap Apply, then OK.
Wind is calculated using three methods in Oudie 3:
. Position drift when Lat/Lon are the only available data,
. Groundspeed difference when groundspeed and track are received from the GPS,
. Combination of Groundspeed and straight flight when true air speed is received from the instrument. In
this case, the wind is updated in straight flight as well.

Map
This dialog allows you to setup the appearance of the map in Map view 36 . Oudie 3 uses CIT maps for
rendering the terrain. It is the same map as in the desktop version of SeeYou.
Show map check box will enable the display of the Vector map if checked.
Terrain
You can choose from several levels of detail of the terrain which is being rendered. When terrain is Off,
you will still see Water bodies, Roads, Railroads, Towns and labels on the screen. With the setting at
Low isolines will appear at approximately 300m each. With the setting at Medium, isolines appear at
about 100m. With the setting at High, you get exactly what you are used to in the desktop SeeYou
version.
Scheme
Several color schemes are preloaded in a new installation. It is easier to see how each one looks if you
look at it in the desktop SeeYou. We recommend "Hight contrast" for mountaneous terrain, ICAO for just
general navigation and Open Street Maps color scheme for the Flatlands.
If Custom color scheme is chosen you get to define your own colors and other properties for the map
objects.

FAI Area panel largely influences the behaviour of the FAI Triangle Assistant.
You may choose the Color and Fill for the FAI Area. Show area checkbox determines whether or not
the FAI area will be displayed in the first place. Note that you can control this option much more
conveniently through the Display Options 52 dialog.
The Rotate button will change where the FAI Area is drawn. If the currently flown triangle is not deep
enough it will switch sides over the longest currently flown leg, giving you the option to fly the triangle in
the left or right direction. Once the Triangle is deep enough, it will rotate between the legs so you can
accurately determine where to fly.
Rotate on click refers to the FAI Area when it is drawn on the moving map. A tap on the are will rotate
the area as described above.
Show km. lines will draw the curves connecting locations where the triangle has the same distance.

Navboxes
Navigational boxes are one of the most important parts of Oudie 3. They show all parameters of flight.
You have full control over which Navboxes you wish to display, how large and how transparent they
should be and where they should be located. Note that each Navbox can also function as a button if you
assign an "Action" to it.
Navboxes are setup separately for Map 1 and Map 2 views. That is because normally you will want to use
the two map views for two different reasons. One could be general navigation while the other one is
approaching the waypoint where details are important. You will require two different settings for which
Navboxes should be displayed in these conditions.
Through this dialog you can select which of the available Navboxes you wish to display on the active map.
The Combo box allows you to choose from a sub-group of navboxes so you can more easily select or
change the ones you want. One sub-group is also "Currently visible navboxes" for example.

89
Airspace Warning is activated by two triggers. First warning is when the projected point of the flight is
inside a sector. Sector is outlined bold red, so you can clearly identify it on the screen. The position of
the glider is projected for the value in secons ahead of the current position. This value is setup in Time
[s] setting.
Second Airspace warning appears when you fly closer than the preselected Distance from the Airspace
or when your altitude is less than Alt.res different from the airspace boundaries. A continous sound
warning and whole-screen warning appears.
Altitude warning is a general warning, useful for example when there is a maximum altitude set for a
competition day or 18.000ft for the USA. When you come close to the airspace, you get a beep and the
red banner much like the airspace warning.

and the communication will run automatically.
The header line of the Map view

will display 3D/X, 2D/X or BAD in the top left corner when in GPS/
Simulator
In this mode a glider is controlled by dragging a line out of the glider thus telling it in which direction to
move and how fast. You can specify a start Latitude and Longitude through the edit boxes if you wish.
File
This mode takes an IGC file and animates an old flight. This is the most perfect way to test the
application. You will be able to rely on own feelings from the actual flight and observe what Oudie 3
would have been telling you if you had it with you in the air at that time. Use the "..." button to select a
flight you wish to animate and the Rate spin do select how fast the animation should run.
A particularly useful way to replay a flight is if you managed to save a NMEA log of your flight. In the

NMEA log all of the messages that were sent to the device may be reproduced on screen, including other
Flarm data and its warnings. To replay a saved NMEA log you need to create a "TMP" folder in the root
of your Oudie memory, save the NMEA log as "nmeain.log" and select "File" as your input in Menu >
Settings > input.

Selecting multiple waypoint and airspace files.
It is possible to select more than one waypoint and more than one airspace file in Oudie 3. Maps are
preloaded for the whole world. You don't have to change those at any time.
Waypoint files only: If you decide to use more than one waypoint file, then one file must be selected as
Active. Tasks will be read and written to this file and no other files. Many waypoint file types are
supported: SeeYou waypoint file format .cup - .cupx, .wpt (Compe GPS and Ozi explorer), .dat, .grw, .

the whole file system of your device is searched for corresponding files. If you are looking for terrain
files, all CIT files from your PDA will be listed etc.
7.18
Log
Oudie 3 does also log a flight and produces an IGC file. It can however be analyzed in SeeYou or similar
software after the flight.
This dialog lets you enter the Header information for the flights recorded with Oudie 3. Information on
Pilot, Copilot, Competition ID, Glider and Class is collected here. Interval spin box lets you select
the interval between consecutive fixes that are recorded while Enable logging check box turns logging
on and off. The location of the stored IGC file is determined through the Settings > Files 97 dialog.
The Start/Finish logging button enables you to manually start or finish the recording of the flight
regardless of the current flight parameters which try to determine takeoff and landing automatically.
Launch Type determines how soaring begin is calculated. At the setting "Foot launch" Soaring begin is
equal to takeoff. At other settings it is not.

User Interface (UI)
Screen orientation may not be supported on all devices. If certain or all directions are greyed out then
your devices does not support rotating the screen in that particular direction. The directions given are
relative to the default orientation:
0 = default orientation
90 = 90 degrees clock-wise from the default orientation
180 = upside down from the portrait orientation
270 = 90 degrees anti-clockwise from the default orientation
Changing the screen orientation requires a reboot of the Oudie in order for all changes to take effect.
Dialog timeout sets up how long a dialog will wait for you to press something before it quits and
returns back to navigation. Dialogs subjected to this are Zoom, Flight Properties, Wind, Map orientation
and similar. Note that the Settings dialog is not a subject to disappearing as we consider you know what
you are doing when you are going through the Settings.
Drag limit is an area of pixels within which the control will not move even if you move the stylus or your
finger. This is required for using the display with fingers because it is difficult to keep still in a shaky
environment of the glider.
Snap pix lets you choose the margin for how far away a point from the database is selected

Oudie 3 speaks several Languages. You may select your language through the Language combo box.
Managing installed language files is possible through the Manage... 101 dialog. Note that you need to
have installed the Multilingual version of SeeYou to have other languages than English available.
Regional Settings drop down list allows you to select how you would like the date and time field to be
formatted. For example if you wish to use SeeYou Mobile in English but still want your local date and
time format choose your locale through this drop down list.
7.19.1 Manage languages
In this dialog you can see which language files are installed on your Oudie 3 and what versions they
carry. A language file version must be the same as the installed application version or else, the
translations won't work. You will need to download the Multilingual version each time you upgrade Oudie
3 to be able to use Oudie 3 in a language other than English.

Windows Mobile tips and tricks
There are some tricks in using the Oudie 3.
Using Oudie 3 with your fingers and gloves
Usually in office conditions, you will be using your Oudie 3 with the included stylus. However in flight this
is a pain. Stylus is small, Oudie 3 is shaking, so taping the screen is pretty inaccurate. The stylus could
get lost really quickly. Oudie 3 is therefore designed to be used with fingers (gloves) rather than the
stylus.
Tap
This is similar to mouse left-click in desktop Windows. Press your finger or nail anywhere on the screen
to create a "Tap". This way you can navigate through the menus or tap on the map to get the Goto and
Airspace menu for example.
Tap and Hold
Tap and hold is something similar to the mouse right-click in desktop Windows. There are few uses for a
pop-up menu in Oudie 3, so Tap and Hold is normally used to perform special tasks on the map. An
example is moving the Nav-boxes or accessing the Flight parameters by tapping and holding the
Glideslope indicator. Similar use is assigned to tapping and holding the Wind and North indicators.
