Introduction
Oudie v5.1
Company Naviter is dedicated to solving glider pilot's problems and Oudie is one of the answers in this
challenge. Its intended use is helping glider, para-glider and hang glider pilots navigate during leisure,
cross country and competition flights.
Oudie is a Personal Gliding Assistant which aims at providing everything a glider pilot needs in one simple
package. For this reason Oudie is shipped with all cables which are required to connect to your flight
data recorder or GPS, a basic suction cup holder as well as car and wall chargers. The proven Naviter
software packages SeeYou Mobile and ConnectMe are preinstalled already. You can literally take it out of
the box and use it in your glider.
Oudie works great in combination with other Naviter products such as SeeYou for the PC, ConnectMe,
Soaring Spot and others. It was designed to answer the question which was most frequently posted to us
as "Which device should I buy to run SeeYou Mobile?"
Naviter is a Slovenian based software company. We focus on highly featured and easy to use software
for glider pilots. The needs of glider pilots worldwide are what we are interested in.

Introduction
4
˙
Connect the wall charger cable to AC 110-240 V power source and insert the connector to
the mini USB slot on the Oudie .
˙
Connect the car charger to the DC 12-24 V source and insert the connector to the mini USB
slot on the Oudie.
˙
Connect the Power and Serial data cable to DC 12V power source and insert the USB
connector to the mini USB slot
˙
Connect the USB cable to an external Power Pack battery (not included)
The Power indicator light indicates charging status of the Oudie. Green light means that the
device's internal battery is fully charged. Amber light indicates that the battery is charging.
In some cases connecting a cable to the USB port will open a screen where you get to choose
between connecting to PC and charging the battery:
Choosing Connect to PC, will shut down the navigation software in order to start the
communication with the PC. You should choose this option to copy your flights to the PC for
example.
Choosing Charge battery, will charge the Oudie's battery and no communication will be
attempted. This is what you should do in flight.
1.3
Mounting with the holder
The mounting kit consists of the cradle and the suction cup mount. First insert the cradle into the
suction cup mount until you hear and feel a strong click.
Then insert Oudie into the cradle so that you hear a strong click again.
Use the screw on the holder to adjust the tightness of the cradle. Turn the cradle into ideal
viewing position for your use.

Running SeeYou Mobile for the first time
After successful installation, use the SeeYou Mobile icon on your Today screen to start the application.
Unless you are connected to the GPS source already, it will inform you that a GPS input is unavailable and
ask you to select a new input. Click Yes and the Settings > Input 121 dialog will be opened. To run an
already recorded demo flight, select File, then press OK in the command bar at the bottom of the screen.
What you get is the demo flight on a demo map with demo waypoints and demo airspace. The airplane
will takeoff at a 20:1 accelerated replay and the Navboxes will start to show values which the pilot would
have been looking at if he was flying with SeeYou Mobile on that particular flight.
The Map page
51
display is divided into Map with symbols > Command bar sections from top to bottom.
Map 51 with symbols
is where you will be looking for information all the time. You can tap the symbols to bring up additional
dialogs for

Flight properties 75 dialog by tapping on the arrival altitude/MC symbol
Move the glider if you tap on the glider. This is also a sort of Pan function for the map.
Tapping on a waypoint on the map gives you a list of Waypoints, sorted on distance from the tap. This is
a quick way to select a waypoint from a group of waypoints.
Dragging a line on the screen gives you a list of Waypoints, primarily sorted on the direction of the drag
and secondly on the distance from the glider. This is useful for searching for a waypoint that is not on the
screen, but you know it is in the specified direction.
The Navboxes 108 are what you will use to display the information you need. Be it Final glide, Navigation,
Optimization or another issue, use Menu > Navboxes to select which items you want displayed.
Command bar 62
holds 5 shortcuts to specific actions.
The default actions for software buttons from left to right (Command bar) are:

Copying files to SeeYou Mobile
Mobile Wizard connects SeeYou with Oudie to send files to the Pocket PC. Mobile Wizard never expires.
That means you don't have to have a registered version of SeeYou to transfer all of the required data to
the Pocket PC.
© 2003 - 2014 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Getting started
12
1. Connect Oudie to your PC by connecting the USB cable
2. Tap "Connect to PC" on your Oudie screen to start the communication if prompted (newer Oudies
won't ask)
3. Remember which drive letter was assigned to your Oudie
4. Run SeeYou
5. Go to File > Mobile Wizard
First page of the Mobile wizard allows you to select the Items you wish to transfer to the device. You
can choose from
. Waypoints and Tasks
. Airspace
. Settings (Vector map color scheme, units, triangle properties, default observation zones)
Second page gives you the possibility to select basename and destination folder for the data you have
selected to upload on the first page.
. Files that will be created will have the same name as Basename and respective extensions CUB for
airspace, CIT for vector maps and CUP for waypoints and tasks.
. Choose "Copy to my Computer" as the destination for files
. Click "Browse" to select the location on your Oudie where you would like to save the files
. Use the Browse buttons to select the destination folder easily.
Third page asks you to draw a rectangle for the area you want to transfer to the Pocket PC.

Learning to use SeeYou Mobile
There is two recommended options to learn SeeYou Mobile before you get airborne.
File replay
This is by far the most efficient way to learn SeeYou Mobile. 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 SeeYou Mobile with you
© 2003 - 2014 ... Naviter d.o.o.
13
Oudie
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 121 , 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 108
separately for each of the two Map pages.
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 Pocket PC memory, save the NMEA log as "nmeain.log" and select "File" as your input in Menu >
Settings > input.
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.
Learning SeeYou Mobile on the ground will give you time to think about gliding, task and scenery in the
air rather than software.
SeeYou Mobile Simulator for desktop PC
In addition we have created a 100% functional copy of our software which runs on the desktop PC. This
program enables you to test all features of SeeYou Mobile at home without even having to buy a Pocket
PC before you decide that you would like to use SeeYou Mobile in flight.

Connecting to the GPS source
There are three basic ways to connect Oudie to the GPS source:
1. Built-in GPS
2. Serial cable connection to external GPS source
3. Bluetooth
You can choose which option you would like to use through Menu > Settings > Input dialog in SeeYou
Mobile:
© 2003 - 2014 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Getting started
14
1. Built-in GPS
The built-in GPS in Oudie is always on COM 1 > 4800bps. You can setup the Oudie to use internal GPS by
selecting Menu > Settings > Input > Internal GPS
2. Serial cable connection to external GPS source
The supplied Serial data cable enables you to connect to external data source such as your Variometer,
Flight data recorder, anti-collision device or similar. You should select Menu > Setting > Input > Serial
cable in order to use this option. You will need the manual from the other device in order to determine
the correct Port Settings such as Baud rate. You should always use COM 4 on Oudie for this type of
connection.
The supplied Data/Power cable has a RJ45 connector by default with standard IGC pinout. Several
converters are included in the box which enable you to connect to flight recorders with RJ12 or DB9
connectors. Special cables are also available as an accessory for a very simple direct connection to some
specific flight recorders such as LX 7007, CAI 302, LX 1600 etc. Please refer to the chapter Cables and
Converters 16 of this manual to learn more about how to connect your Oudie with different GPS devices.
It is very important to understand that the supplied Serial cable must be connected to 12 V direct current
source (such as your glider's battery) in order to work.

Oudie
3. Bluetooth
Another way to receive external data source is to connect through Bluetooth. Go to Menu > Settings >
Input > Bluetooth to pair Bluetooth device with Oudie:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
press Lookup on Oudie (only devices which advertize SPP protocol are displayed)
Select the device you would like to connect to
Press "Pair..."
enter the PIN of the device you are connecting to
connection should be established on COM 5 (make sure the Baude rate is correct)
You should refer to the manual of the other device in order to find out about its settings such as Pairing
key, baud rate, availability of the serial communication protocols etc. Once the devices are paired and
serial communication is established the data flow starts immediately.
K6 Bluetooth is a special protocol which should be used when connecting to the K6 Bluetooth device
because it enables even more features than the standard Bluetooth protocol.

Cables and converters
Oudie is delivered with a variety of cables and converters which enable you to connect Oudie to your
almost any logger "out of the box":
1. Power and data cable
It provides power to Oudie and (optionally) to the device which is
connected to the RJ45 connector.
It has three connectors:
. mini USB connector must be connected to Oudie
. black and red cable must be connected to 12V power supply
(red is 12V, black is ground). Allowed input voltage is 10-30V.
. RJ45 connector with standard IGC pinout where
pins 1 and 2 = +12V (anything between 10-30V is ok)
pin 5 = Receive to Oudie
pin 6 = Transmit from Oudie
pins 7 and 8 = Ground
Use directly with these devices: Swiss Flarm, Volkslogger, K6 Mux, VW1150
2. RJ 45 Female/Female Gender Changer
This connector can be used for extending the 8-wires cable using another RJ45 connector (for example
ethernet cable). It can also be used to connect RJ12 connector with 6-wires cable which can be used for
data communication with Colibri, LX 20/2000, MiniBox, RedBox and other devices using RJ12 connectors.
3. 20 cm cable extension with male RJ12 connectors
This is an extension cable which can be used for both power
and data transmission between Oudie and connected device. It
must be used together with RJ45 Gender Changer. RJ12 can
be plugged into the RJ45 connector on the Gender Changer.
The other end is connected with the device. Pins 1 and 8 are
not connected when RJ12 cable is connected to the RJ45
Gender Changer.
Use RJ45 Gender Changer and RJ12 cable extension directly with these devices: Colibri, LX 20/2000,
MiniBox, RedBox
4. RJ45->DB9 Male and Female converters
This is a "do-it-yourself" DB9 converter. The converter pinout is free. You can pin any wire from the RJ45
connector to any pin on the DB9 connector.
Typical use:
. LX 5000, LX 7000: Use female DB9 connector: Black -> 2 (Transmit from Oudie), Red -> 3 (Receive to
Oudie), Orange -> 5 (Ground)
. GPS-NAV, SN10 Standard RS 232: Use male DB9 connector: Black -> 3 (Transmit from Oudie), Red ->
2 (Receive to Oudie), Orange -> 5 (Ground)
. LX 160 (NOT the "si" version - see the warning below): Use female DB9 connector: Black -> 4
(Transmit from Oudie), Red -> 3 (Receive to Oudie), Orange -> 1 (Ground)
. Zander/SDI GP940 and GP941: Black->3 (Transmit from Oudie), Red->2 (Receive to Oudie), Orange->5
(Ground), Brown->4 (DTR)

Oudie
WARNING: If you are attempting to connect to devices which provide 5V on any of the pins please make
absolutely sure that the pin where the other device provides 5V is not connected to the White or Brown
wires (pins 1 and 2 on RJ45). This will cause collision and possibly damage to both connected devices!
Take particular care when connecting the following devices: Cambridge 302, LX 7007, LX 1600, LX160si,
Nano and others with built-in 12->5V converter. Be especially careful not to plug the standard Oudie and
standard Nano cable together because the plugs are compatible but the pinout is not!
RJ45 wire's colors:
1 = White (+12V)
2 = Brown (+12V)

Using Profiles
If you feel no need to use more than one set of navboxes or fly more than one sailplane ignore this
feature and go read the next chapter.

If however you fly several types of gliders
or fly 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
SeeYou Mobile 5.0. You can have separate
setups for each of your club's gliders plus
one profile for the competition you are
attending shortly. Here's how it works.
1. When you first ran SeeYou Mobile, 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 single seater of your club with a
significantly different polar and GPS source
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 > Misc 134 and
click the "Add Profile..." button.

Oudie
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 "ASW 27", "LX 1600" or
"World Gliding Championships".

3. Next time you start SeeYou Mobile 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 126
Pilot name and Glider type settings 128
Hardware that is connected to SeeYou Mobile 135
Navboxes for Map1 108
Navboxes for Map2 108 (they are separate, remember?)

Entering the task
This is a tutorial about entering the task in SeeYou Mobile. 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
SeeYou Mobile.
Please read this because entering the task is just that - enter the waypoint names and go. No setting up
of observation zones is neccessary. Tutorial will focus on entering the demo task. The default one in the
evaluation version of SeeYou Mobile. The task will become a 500km FAI triangle in the south-eastern
part of the Alps. Both Racing, badge and record tasks as well as Assigned Area tasks are covered.
Always start from the scratch. Menu > Task > Tools > Clear task:

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 to go down to since the airspace structure is very abstract and often
complicated. SeeYou Mobile will be your best friend if you use the whole potential of what it's got to
offer.
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 narest
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 - 2014 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Getting started
30
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, SeeYou Mobile 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.

Flying badge, record and racing tasks
To complete this type of tasks, you need to do some preflight preparation.
1. Enter the task you will be flying.
You will need to go to the Menu > Task 84 dialog. Use the keypad to enter waypoint names in list view.
Type first few characters, then use left and right keys to complete the selection.

After you have entered the task waypoints, check that waypoint sectors are setup correctly. At each of
the waypoints, click on the Edit button to open Edit point 87 dialog. Setup these values to fly FAI records
or badges:
. Start: Direction = Next, Radius1 = 0.5km, check Line only checkbox.
. Waypoints 1-3: Direction = Symmetric, Radius1 = 3km, Angle1 = 45° (the rest is zero or not
unselected)
. Finish: Direction = Previous, Radius1 = 0.5km, check Line only checkbox.

2. Start the task in flight.
Look at the screen to see where the start line is in order not to miss it. You will get a sound warning
telling you that you have successfully crossed the start line. After you have crossed the start line a box
appears where the start time is displayed. To start navigating on the task, press the Start Time box.
Navigation is moved to the first waypoint of the task and statistics runs.
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.
3. Flying the task
To navigate during the task use all of the featues that are made available to you through SeeYou Mobile:
. Map pages 51 to see where you are
. Navboxes 108 to see the flight parameters you are interested in
. Statistics 66 to see what you have done
. Airspace warning 61 to keep yourself out of trouble
. Goto dialog 78 to find nearest airports etc.

4. 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 108 . 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 insensitive to the MC setting, glider
polar, wind calculation, setting for bugs and ballast. 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!

device and its intuitive use of the touch screen.
1. Enter the task you will be flying.
You will need to go to the Menu > Task 84 dialog. Use the keypad to enter waypoint names in list view.
Type first few characters, then use left and right keys to complete the selection.
After you have entered the task waypoints, you must setup the properties for the Assigned Areas. Click
on the Edit button of each waypoint to open Edit point 87 dialog. To make the sector an Assigned Area,
you should:
. check the Assigned Area checkbox
. enter Direction, Angle12, Radius1, Angle1, Radius2 and Angle2 values as assigned at the briefing.
To setup a "disc" shape sector, you should enter
Direction = Symmetric (not required)
Radius1 = a value in kilometers or miles, given at the briefing
Angle1 = 180°
Assigned Area = Checked

The next thing to do is to setup the task time, also specified at the briefing. It is setup in minutes
through Menu > Task > Tools > Options > Task Time 89
2. Before the flight
Turnpoints in each sector are setup to the center of each sector by default. But this is probably not where
you are going to fly to given the latest meteo situation. If you have a rough idea about what you are
going to do, go to Menu > Task >Tools > Map 86 or tap on the screen and select the Task tab 56 in
Cursor Info dialog. Change the "navigate to" point in each sector to create a task of the desired length
and speed which you think is achievable in Task Time for the given day.

While on the task, you will get a much better idea about what the weather is doing for you. You will want
to move the point in the next sector to optimize it for the speed you think is achievable for the rest of the
flight.
Observe how the finish time indicators change as you move the point around. This will give you a very
good idea about what you should be doing in the next couple of hours.

pages will help you understand what is going on. Task statistics gives you distance and speed achieved
since crossing the start line while 60 minue statistics tells you how you are doing in the last hour.
Comparing the two gives you a good idea about what you need to do to finish the task.

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 70 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
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
© 2003 - 2014 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Getting started
42
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 108 . 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 124 .
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 106 dialog.
Example shows kilometer lines for Triangles between 160 - 280 km. If you fly into the violet area, the
triangle will be an FAI triangle.

Using Thermal Assistant
Thermal assistant is a feature of SeeYou Mobile 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.
2. Thermal Assistant audio warning goes off if variance is large enough (see Settings - Thermal 116 ).
It whistles a selected amount of seconds or degrees (see Settings - Thermal 116 ) before the glider will
reach the same part of the circle where maximum lift was reached in the previous circle.
© 2003 - 2014 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Getting started
44
3. Thermal assistant graphics is displayed if variance for displaying the thermal assistant is large
enough (see Settings - Thermal 116 ). 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.

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

Flarm Radar
Flarm is a collision-warning system for general aviation and recreational flying. It is an alternative to the
commercial airliners' expensive ACAS/TCAS system. It is however important to understand that Flarmlike devices were not designed to protect you from other flying objects. They are useful for situational
awarness of other Flarm devices in vicinity. There is lots of other traffic and obstacles that are not
covered by Flarm therefore be aware that the most important task in the cockpit is to keep a good
overview of the traffic around your glider at all times.
SeeYou Mobile is able to read the output from Flarm devices and present a radar-like system which
displays other Flarms with correct visibility/privacy settings in vicinity. Flarms that have privacy enabled

are hidden. The screen may look like this:
Screenshot???
Each circle represents 1 km distance from the other Flarm device. By default, those Flarms which are
less than 100 meters above or below your current altitude are marked red, others are black. Each Flarm
is presented by a glider symbol, its recent track and a group of numbers for altitude and average vario
(20s average). If a friendly name was added for a particular Flarm, then this name appears in the label
as well. Colors, visibility of the radar, track lenghts and some other settings are customizable through
Settings > Flarm 132 .
At zoom levels greater than 10km (by default) the radar circles around the glider disappear. New circles
appear in the upper right corner of your screen. This is a Flarm Radar Symbol (see also Settings >
Symbols 114 ) which displays the three concentric circles in the upper right corner of your screen (by
default, but you can move it around). They still represent 1km distance each regardless of the chosen
Zoom level and units.
You may tap anywhere on the screen and select the "Flarm" tab to see a list of all Flarm devices that are
being received at the moment:
© 2003 - 2014 ... Naviter d.o.o.
47
Oudie
In the example screenshot three Flarm devices are visible. By default they are sorted on distance from
the tap on the screen. If you tap on a specific aircraft that aircraft will be the first on the list. First item in
the screenshot is "DD8D07". This code is the Flarm identification number and thus not very useful or
intuitive. This is why you may select a device and click Edit to rename a specific Flarm to give it a
readable name.
You may also select a device and then Goto. This way you start navigating towards the selected Flarm
device for as long as it is within range. When it goes out of range, the aircraft symbol for that device will
start blinking for a default period of 120 seconds. After that the target becomes blank and the device is
removed from the maps and lists.
The keyboard for entering the Flarm friendly name and other information is large enough to be used in
flight by fingers:

Close all dialogs with OK and you will see an additional line in the Flarm-Radar screen which will report
Flarm's friendly name in addition to altitude and vario (see the first screenshot for Friend and Enemy
flarms). Additionally when you exit SeeYou Mobile these friendly names will be stored on your PDA for
the future. It is a simple text file, so feel free to share it with friends.
Further customization is possible through Settings > Flarm dialog 132 :

There are two Map views (Map 1 and Map 2) which are setup independently from each other. Each map
view can be orientated differently, have different Zoom levels, details of the map and its own Navboxes.
This is useful because you can switch from an overview map.

Waypoints
If a tap on the map occurred close to a Waypoint, cursor info dialog appears with Waypoints sorted on
distance from the position where the tap occurred.
You can also get a list of Waypoints, sorted on direction. Tap the screen and hold it down, then move the
finger in one direction. You will get a list of points sorted on distance (+-15 degrees from the direction of
the drag)
Columns are sortable in the Goto dialog. Click on the column header to sort ascending or descending on
these parameters:
. Name
. Type (Ascending ordering lists landable fields first. Sorting on this column effectively lists Near
Airports)
. Crs = Course
. Distance
. Arrival altitude
. Required L/D
. Code (short name)
If you would like to change the order or size of the columns, you may drag the boundaries to change size
or drag the header to change the order of the columns.

This screen is only available when Flarm messages are received in the NMEA input stream. If you tap
anywhere on the screen and select the "Flarm" tab to see a list of all Flarm devices that are being
received at the moment:

In the example screenshot three Flarm devices are visible. By default they are sorted on distance from
the tap on the screen. If you tap on a specific aircraft that aircraft will be the first on the list. First item in
the screenshot is "DD8D07". This code is the Flarm identification number and thus not very useful or
intuitive. This is why you may select a device and click Edit to rename a specific Flarm to give it a
readable name. In the example screenshot above, two flarm devices were renamed to "Friend" and
"Enemy" respectively.
You may also select a device and then Goto. This way you start navigating towards the selected Flarm
device for as long as it is within range. When it goes out of range, the aircraft symbol for that device will
start blinking for a default period of 120 seconds. After that the target becomes blank and the device is
removed from the maps and lists.

4. Number below MacCready tells you how much altitude is required to reach the selected waypoint.
Negative values mean that you have to climb, positive values mean you have enough altitude.
In addition to that, two more squares are displayed on the Target line which help you understand how
you are doing in the final glide:
1. Yellow square marks the position from which you can reach the selected Waypoint (or task finish)
from your current altitude at MacCready ring set to zero.
2. Green square marks the position from which you can reach the selected Waypoint (or task finish) from

Navboxes
SeeYou Mobile supports several Navigation boxes. You have full control over which Navboxes you wish to
display, how large they should be and where they should be located.
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.

Take-off altitude
By changing this setting you can change your take-off altitude. Setting up this value correctly is essential
for correct final glide indications. When there is a waypoint or the terrain map with elevations in vicinity,
there is a suggestion at what to set up in the top line of this dialog.
QNH
By changing the QNH value you can change the pressure at start or change the QNH in flight to correct
the change in pressure
Linked
Whether this value should be linked or unlinked depends on whether pressure altitude or just GPS
altitude is received from the device.
When pressure altitude is transmitted, you should setup the two values for Altitude and QNH
independently (unlinked). Link them when done. When airborne you may change one value and the other
one will change accordingly. Example: when the weather report states QNH 1015 while your setting is
1020, you can change QNH setting to the correct value 1015 and simultaneously change the Altitude to
the correct value.
When only GPS altitude data is available, you should wait until the altitude reading is stable. Change the
altitude to the correct altitude and leave the "linked" checkbox unlinked. The GPS altitude accuracy
© 2003 - 2014 ... Naviter d.o.o.

Oudie
depends on the GPS device. Some devices send a corrected ellipsoid value while the others send
uncorrected values.
MacCready
You can setup the MC setting here. The optimum value for the MC setting can be derived from the
statistics page and other Navboxes.
Bugs
By changing the Bugs value you can degrade the performance of the polar by a certain percentage.
Ballast
This value sets up the wing loading parameter. Next to the brackets you can read the "overload" value.
Altitude reserve
All final glide calculations are subject to correction of the altitude reserve. If this value is greater than 0,
then your arrival altitude to the waypoint will be this much above the altitude of the waypoint elevation
from the waypoint database (this may not be its actual altitude, so use at own risk, needless to say).
Volume
This property is only used when connected to a variometer which is capable of receiving commands for
changing the Vario volume. Such instruments are LX 1600 and Cambridge 302.
ETE
Pressing the button you may choose from four different ways to calculate estimated time of arrival to the
airport. Calculation is always divided into straight flight and climb time calculations.
1. MC uses the Polar data and MacCready setting to calculate speed to fly and climb rate.
2. Vario uses the last four thermals average to compute climb rate and uses this value to calculate speed
to fly.
3. Avg Speed & Vario uses the average groundspeed over the last 5 minutes for distance and Vario
statistics for climb rate.
4. Avg Speed & MC uses the average groundspeed over the last 5 minutes for distance and MacCready
setting for climb rate.
You may disable "use altitude difference" if you know you will not climb anymore.
Soaring time
Lets you enter your soaring begin time manually. This is useful for motorgliders, since none of the
instruments send ENL data over NMEA.
Buttons at the bottom will help you enter the correct values by simply using your fingers.

Through the menu
If the Goto dialog is accessed through Menu > Goto, waypoints are sorted first on type, then distance.
This is the Near Airport function of SeeYou Mobile.
Through the Command bar
By default, the Goto icon is displayed in the Command bar.
Landable waypoints which can be reached with the current MacCready setting are colored green.
Landable points which can be reached with MacCready setting zero are colored yellow while the others
are not colored. The glideslope calculation considers the altitude reserve if entered in the Flight
Properties 75 dialog.

the column header to a new location.
Pressing the Details button will open a new window where you can read waypoint details and edit
waypoint properties. It will close automatically after 10 seconds or when you press the OK/Goto button.
Since the waypoint list may be huge there is a quicker way to accessing a particular point alphabetically
by Filtering 81 the points. When the waypoints are filtered, the Filter caption is highlighted in the
command bar (see screenshot below).
At the bottom of the screen, immediately above the menu, three recently used waypoints are displayed.
Landable points are colored green or yellow if they are reachable. At the top of the screen you can
choose between clearing the target all together, navigating back to takeoff location or back to Soaring
begin (useful for closing a triangle for example).

Since SeeYou Mobile may use multiple files as the input for waypoints there is need for a simple way to
filter the waypoints so that only those waypoints which are of the most interest to the user are
presented.
Three filters are available in order for you to organize your waypoints in a more readable way:
. Alphabetical filter
. Filter by waypoint type
. Filter by file
Alphabetical filter allows you to simply enter the waypoint's name. As soon as the list of waypoints is less

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

6.11.5 Task options
Task options dialog is accessed through Menu > Task > Tools > Options...
You can name a task. This is particularly useful at a competition briefing where you can name it Task A
and Task B.
Task time is essential for flying the Assigned Area tasks. It is used to calculate required speed to finish
as well as time difference on task.
The MC (MacCready) panel allows you to set your average lift in the edit box and see what your
theoretical speed will be if you fly according to the MacCready theory.
The Auto advance check box will automatically move the navigation point to the next point from the
Task if checked. In case of an Assigned Area sector, the "Navigate to" point will remain the same, but
statistics and distance to finish will be moved to the next point.
When Finish is 1000m below start is checked, the altitude of the finish point is automatically moved to
Start altitude less 1000m. This is useful when flying FAI badge and record flights.
Use the + and - buttons to quickly change values.

6.11.6 Upload Task declaration
You can declare the task directly into the supported devices. This allows you to change the task literally
seconds before takeoff without even changing the cables. Do this:
. go to Menu > Task
. Options > Load task > select a new task which you would like to fly
. Press the "Upload" button
Some flight recorders require input from the pilot to get connected (such as pressing a key, restarting
the logger or such). After the communication is established, the following data is transfered automatically
to the flight recorder:
. Declared task in SeeYou Mobile which you have entered in Menu > Task
. Glider information which is entered in Menu > Settings > Polar (glider type) and Menu > Settings > Log
(glider registration)
. Pilot name as entered in Menu > Settings > Log
Reset device is available only for selected devices which do support this action. Volkslogger as an
example will cycle the power and return to the navigation mode after this action has completed.
When the action Close when upload is completed is checked, the Upload dialog will close upon
competion of the upload.

Navboxes
Navigational boxes are one of the most important parts of SeeYou Mobile. 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.
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.

Warnings
There is three types of warnings in SeeYou Mobile
1. Airspace warnings
2. Altitude warnings
3. Flarm warnings
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.
Flarm warning is special in that it reads the information from the Flarm device and then uses voice

would like to be warned about potential better lift in one part of the circle.
Vario variance is the difference between squares of deviations and the mean vario value. The bigger the
difference, the more possible it is that if you move your circle in the direction of the strongest lift that the
average climb will increase.
In the Menu > Settings > Thermal you can determine at which vario variance you would like the visual
Thermal Assistant and Audio thermal assistant will appear. For the audio you can also select how much
before the maximum the thermal assistance will whistle.
You may choose between Bubbles and Ring representation of the graph which shows the best part of the
lift. Ring is default setting. If Hide map option is choosen you will not see map while Thermal Assistant is
turned ON.
Thermal Assistant is automatically activated after 120 degrees turn. When you are flying out from
thermal for more than 500 m Thermal Assistant is deactivated.

on unless you have a good reason to do so.
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 SeeYou
Mobile 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 spinner to 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.

Show Radar: Through this setting you may setup a Zoom level below which the Flarm radar is visible.
Default value is 10km which is also a suggested value. The reach of the Flarm Radar is about 3km and it
depends largely on the placing of the Flarm antenna in both transmitting and receiving aircrafts. The 3km
radar circle at Zooms above 10km becomes small and the screen cluttered, therefore we suggest 10km
as a default for this setting.
Show lost device for [s]: When sygnal from a particular Flarm device is lost, the aircraft remains
blinking on screen for this duration (default 120 seconds). After that the aircraft symbol is removed from

V7 / LX1600
I cannot comment on the functionality of this screen, as I do not have the hardware however please note
that the page in the Menu is entitled LXNAV V7, not V7/LX1600. Also, I have a LXNAV V7(2). What is
that?
This dialog only appears when SeeYou Mobile is connected to the LX 1600 variometer. For more
information on LX 1600, visit www.lxnavigation.si
LX 1600 is a modern vario-speed command system. It is especially designed to operate with PDA
devices. SeeYou mobile supports all features of LX 1600. You can use SeeYou Mobile to change the
volume and MacCready settings through the Flight Properties 75 dialog. You may also use the
Commands 124 dialog to set MacCready increase/decrease and Volume increase/decrease actions to the
available buttons.
There are four panels available on two LX 1600 settings dialogs. Panels are for setting up the
Variometer, Speed to fly, Audio and LCD Indicator settings.
Vario panel allows you to control the properties of the variometer needle.
. Filter affects sensitivity of the vario. The higher the number, the slower vario needle and audio sygnal
respond.
. Range selects max and min values for the vario needle. They can be 5 or 10m/s, 10 or 20kts, 1000 or
© 2003 - 2014 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Settings
138
2000fpm.
. Avg selects the averaging interval for the integrator.
. TE Filter selects the filter for Total Energy compensation. The higher the number, the longer it takes for
the vario to show the change in Total energy altitude of the glider.
. TE Level allows you to compensate for inaccuracies in static pressure/TE tubes. See the LX 1600
manual (chapter 3.2 - Pneumatic Connection) about how to connect the tubes in order to have electronic
compensation (it is different than the tubing when connected to TE pressure compensation).
. Smart filter is a dynamic filter and controls the rate at which the vario indication moves. Higher
number is slower, more filtered. (see LX1600 documentation for more on this)
. Autozero is used when you notice that the needle is not exactly zero on the ground when nothing is
moving and the wind is calm. Press autozero in a calm environment to re-calibrate vario parameters to
zero.
Speed to fly panel
. Mode selects when the vario sound changes from vario to speed to fly. When set to External it will
use the information from an external switch which you must have installed somewhere in the cockpit. In
the On circling mode it will change to vario when the glider is circling while it will be in Speed to fly
mode while cruising. Auto speed mode will switch to speed to fly mode when the airspeed becomes
greater than the Spd. value on this same panel.
. Switch style allows you to "invert" the switch operation through the software. Taster option will
change the modes each time the taster is pressed.
. TAB allows you to select how deep the silent are is (this is an area around zero where speed to fly
indication will not beep).
Write settings to eeprom will save your current settings from both pages (LX 1600 and LX1600-2) to
LX 1600, so they are used even if the PDA is not connected to LX 1600, which can happen in case of
power failure of the PDA.
Audio panel is at the second settings page - LX1600(2).
. Syle lets you choose between the following types of variometer sounds:
.. Lin/neg = The sound changes in linear correlation to the vario reading. It is intermittent at negative
vario values.
.. Lin/pos = The sound changes in linear correlation to the vario reading. It is intermittent at positivevario
values. This is the default setting.
.. Linear = The sound changes in linear correlation to the vario reading. It is not intermittent.
.. Dig/neg = The sound changes in discrete steps. It is intermittent at negative vario values.
.. Dig/pos = The sound changes in discrete steps. It is intermittent at positive vario values.
.. Digital = The sound changes in discrete steps. It is not intermittent at any vario values.
. SC Style lets you select between SC pos, SC neg and SC. SC pos beeps at positive values, SC neg
beeps at negative values wile SC gives a continous sound at positive values, so you won't mistaken its
beeps with vario sounds.
. Min.freq. is the sound you will hear when the vario is pegged at -10m/s.
. Zero freq. is the sound you will hear when vario equals zero.
. Max.freq. is the sound you will hear when the vario is pegged at +10m/s
. SC Vol allows you to select between noisy (Vol H) and more silent sound (Vol L) in Speed command
. Test button allows you to see and hear what you have setup. You must be positively connected to LX
1600 in order to test its audio settings.
LCD indicator is found on the second settings page - LX1600(2). It allows you to setup the upper and
lower numbers in the LCD separately for vario and speed command modes.
. Needle lets you setup what the needle on the indicator shows (Vario, Speed Command, Netto vario or
Relative vario)
. Num#1 lets you setup what the bottom number on the display shows (Altitude QNH, Distance to target,

Windows Mobile tips and tricks
There are some tricks in using the Windows Mobile and PDAs. Here's some which you will want to use
with SeeYou Mobile.
Using PDA with your fingers
Usually in office conditions, you will be using your PDA with the included stylus. However inside the glider
this is a pain. Stylus is small, PDA is shaking, so taping the screen is pretty inaccurate. The stylus could
get lost really quickly. SeeYou Mobile is therefore designed to be used with fingers 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 SeeYou Mobile, 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.
