Introduction
Oudie v4.01
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
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.

˙
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.
Note: Do not place the Oudie in positions which obstruct pilot's movements, vision of nearby traffic
or instruments.

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 90 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
36
display is divided into Map with symbols > Command bar sections from top to bottom.
Map 36 with symbols
is where you will be looking for information all the time. You can tap the symbols to bring up additional
dialogs for
. Wind 57 by tapping on the Wind vector
. Map orientation 54 by tapping on the North arrow
. Flight properties 57 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 82 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 46
holds 5 shortcuts to specific actions.
The default actions for software buttons from left to right (Command bar) are:
. Zoom 56

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
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 90 , 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.
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 thorugh Menu > Settings > Input dialog in SeeYou
Mobile:
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 baude 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

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.
3. Bluetooth
Another way to connect to external data source is to connect through Bluetooth. Go to Menu > Settings >
Input > Bluetooth and pair Bluetooth device with Oudie if you would like to receive serial data from your
device:

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, baude 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.
2.7.1
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".
The following cables are included in Oudie box by default:
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). This cable does not
. RJ45 connector with standard IGC pinout where
pins 1 and 2 = +12V
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
© 2003 - 2010 ... Naviter d.o.o.
13
Oudie
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, 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 male DB9 connector: Black -> 4 (Transmit
from Oudie), Red -> 3 (Receive to Oudie), Orange -> 1 (Ground)
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
and others with built-in 12->5V converter.
RJ45 wire's colors:
1 = White (+12V)
2 = Brown (+12V)
3 = Yellow
4 = Green
5 = Red (Receive to Oudie)
6 = Black (Transmit from Oudie)
7 = Orange (Ground)
8 = Blue (Ground)
=============================================
The following cables are available as accessories:
1. CAI 302 Cable
Connects all models of Cambridge 302 with Oudie. This is a direct cable from CAI to Oudie which
provides both power and data communication between Oudie and CAI 302

2. LX Cable
Connects LX 7007, LX 1600, LX 160 si with Oudie. This is a direct cable from CAI to Oudie which
provides both power and data communication between Oudie and LX instruments.
2.8
Using Profiles
If you feel no need to make your application multi-profiled, ignore this feature and go read the next
chapter.
If 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 2.0. 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 > Miscellaneous 99 and click the "Add Profile..." button.
2. You get to choose to either
. Copy current profile (which makes an exact copy of your settings)
. Create a new profile (which creates a copy of the default settings)
You may give it a name according to what you are going to use it for. Be it "ASW 27", "LX 1600" or
"World Gliding Championships 2004".

3. Next time you start SeeYou Mobile you will have two profiles to choose from. You have 10 seconds to
select a profile. If you do nothing, the last used profile is started.
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 94
Pilot name and Glider type settings 96
Hardware that is connected to SeeYou Mobile 100
Navboxes for Map1 82
Navboxes for Map2 82 (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:
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 S and V keys were pressed while ". Peter" 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:

Press the "Keyb" button again and start entering the first turnpoint's name, Corvara in this example:
Note that after entering "C" and "O" the suggested waypoint name is "Cortina", not "Corvara". Press ">>"
once and you are now at "Corvara". Press OK.
Repeat this procedure until all waypoints including the finish are entered:

ASSIGNED AREA TASKS
Assigned Area tasks are only set in competitions. The organisation will always prepare a task sheet. This
is an excerpt of a task sheet showing the description of the observation zones:
For the tutorial we will edit the observation zone of the point "500Obert" (which is code name for "500
Obertauern" in the task sheet). Tap on the waypoint "500Obert" to make it blue. Then press the Edit
button as indicated in the screenshot:

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 65 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 68 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 36 to see where you are
. Navboxes 82 to see the flight parameters you are interested in
. Statistics 50 to see what you have done
. Airspace warning 44 to keep yourself out of trouble
. Goto dialog 59 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. 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, 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!

Flying Assigned Area tasks
In an Assigned Area task one has a choice of a large area where a turnpoint can be set. Speed is all that
matters in an Assigned Area task. The pilot should have one fix in each are so, that he can maximize the
given meteorological conditions. Assigned Area tasks can hardly be considered without using a Pocket PC
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 65 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 68 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

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 > Map 67 or tap on the screen and select the Task tab 40 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.
3. 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.

again.
4. Flying the task
To navigate during the task use all of the featues that are made available to you through SeeYou Mobile:
. Map pages 36 to see where you are
. Navboxes 82 to see the flight parameters you are interested in
. Statistics 50 to see what you have done
. Airspace warning 44 to keep yourself out of trouble
. Goto dialog 59 to find nearest airports etc.
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 wil give you a very
good idea about what you should be doing in the next couple of hours.
5. Statistics
While in flight, you will also be interested in the Task Statistics 50 of what you have achieved. Two
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.

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 two ways to catch your attention:
1. Thermal Assistant audio warning goes off if variance is large enough (see Settings - Thermal 87 ).
It whistles a selected amount of seconds or degrees (see Settings - Thermal 87 ) before the glider will
reach the same part of the circle where maximum lift was reached in the previous circle.
2. Thermal assistant graphics is displayed if variance for displaying the thermal assistant is large
enough (see Settings - Thermal 87 ). 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:
. find a thermal
. start circling
. look outside
. observe the thermal clues
. observe traffic in your vicinity
. 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 :-)

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 53 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
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 93 .
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 > Opt 80 dialog.
Example shows kilometer lines for 80, 100 and 120km triangle. If you fly into the violet area, the triangle
will be an FAI triangle.

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 however 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:
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 98 .
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:

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.
The keyboard for entering the Flarm friendly name is large enough to be used in flight by fingers:

Flight trace
The recently flown glider trace is optionally displayed behind the glider. Preferences can be set up
through the Settings > Flight dialog 79 . The trace can be colored in vario readings if "Show vario" option
is checked in Settings > Flight 79 dialog.
When trace is colored to "Show vario", colored boxes represent:
. Red = climb better than the current MC setting
. Yellow = climb less than MC, but between MC and MC - 0.5m/s
. Blue = Climb less than MC - 0.5m/s

Terrain collision
SeeYou Mobile tells you whether or not you can fly over the terrain straight ahead of you. If you can't,
the red square represents the point of collision with the rocks and the height at which you will reach the
terrain. Red number above the MacCready value tells you what altitude you are missing to clear the
obstacle if you fly straight to the goal.

Airspace warning
SeeYou Mobile tries to estimate your position 120 seconds ahead and give you a warning before you
enter airspace.
Any airspace that you are bound to interfere with is outlined with bold red. A beep warns you about the
proximity of an airspace. If you fly closer to the airspace an Airspace alarm will fill the screen to tell you
about the airspace. When the airspace warning appears, you can dismiss this airspace for Today, 1
hour or 5 minutes.
To avoid receiving alarms for airspace that is inactive, you should tap on an airspace. You can then
dismiss airspace through the Cursor Info > Airspace dialog 40
Tapping on an airspace on the Map page allows you to dismiss any visible zones ahead of time. Control
the appearance and warning parameters through Menu > Settings > Airspace 77 .
Tapping on the red Airspace warning banner will open the list of airspaces at present position where you
can quickly dismiss some of them.

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.

Map orientation
Opens a dialog which lets you choose from these different map display options:
. Circling North map is turned track up in straight flight and north up when circling
. 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.
To return back to the location of the glider you need to tap on the North Arrow 41 which now includes
the caption "Pan mode". That will move the view back to the glider and will change the Map orientation
back to what it was before you started to pan.
There is a shortcut for this dialog if you tap with your finger on the North Arrow indicator.

3. longer line means stronger wind. Direction of the movement determines direction of the wind
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 SeeYou Mobile
. 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.

Take-off altitude
© 2003 - 2010 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Menu
58
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
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.
Load
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.

Goto
The goto dialog allows you to select the "Navigate to" point quickly. There are several ways to access this

Tap on the map
Brings up the Goto dialog. Waypoints are sorted on distance from the point where the tap happened on
the Map screen. This way it is easy to select the waypoint you were trying to "tap" even though you
couldn't tell them apart in the Map view due to the Zoom level.
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 57 dialog.
There is more columns available than they are seen by default. Arrival height and L/D to the point are not
visible. Make the existing columns thinner to see the others. You may then reorder them by dragging the
column header to a new location.

6.10.4 Waypoint filter
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 are presented which are of the most interest for the
user.
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
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
screenshot on the right):

Altitude Colors
Altitude Colors dialog lets you change the color scheme for Vector map elevations.
Due to the very faint Pocket PC screens we have designed some extra bright schemes which should let
you help see the valleys and mountain tops better. Note that you can also copy Altitude color settings by
transferring them through the Mobile Wizard 9 .
Schemes combo box lets you choose from saved color schemes. Use Save As... button to save changes
to your color scheme. Use the Delete button to delete the selected scheme.
Changing the color scheme should be process:
. Click on an altitude bar on the left
. Change its color through the "Color" combo box.
. Repeat this for about 4-6 different altitudes
. Use the stylus to drag from one selected altitude to another
. Press Spread
. Repeat this for all of the intervals you have designed.
Google the internet to find out more about color coding the maps. It is a science of its own.
Use Relative coloring checkbox will allow you to color your present altitude in always the same color.
This feature is really a sort of graphical ground collision warning. To see how it works, select the
"Relative" color scheme from the Schemes combo box.

Navboxes
Navigational boxes are one of the most important parts of SeeYou Mobile. They will let you know all you
need about the parameters of flight. 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.
Through this dialog you can select which of the available Navboxes you wish to display on the active
map:
. Vario (Vario) = current vario reading
. Average vario (VarA) = average vario for the last 20s
. Thermal vario (VarT) = average vario since beginning of circling
. Altitude QNH (Alt) = Altitude above sea level
. Ground elevation (Gnd) = Terrain elevation vertically below the glider position
. Height above ground level (Agl) = Altitude above the ground elevation vertically below the glider
position
. Flight level (FL) = Altitude above standard atmosphere pressure
. Speed over ground (GS) = Groundspeed. This value is negative if the difference between heading
and track is more than 90 degrees
. True airspeed (TAS) = Groundspeed corrected with indicated wind
. Track over ground (Trk) = Direction of the flight (true)
. Flown L/D (Cur.L/D) = Current glide ratio estimated over the last two minutes of flight
. Local time (Time) = UTC time from GPS corrected by time zone set in the Pocket PC
. Optimized distance (Opt) = Optimization over a preselected number of waypoints (default is OLC
optimization)
. FAI Triangle distance (FAI) = Triangle optimization. It displays "FAI Tri" when proportions are correct
. Distance to target (Dis) = Distance to the selected waypoint
. Arrival altitude (Arrival) = Expected Arrival altitude at the selected waypoint calculated by taking the
© 2003 - 2010 ... Naviter d.o.o.

Oudie
distance, MC, wind, glider polar, bugs and ballast into account. It is corrected for reserve altitude.
"Arrival altitude" will be positive when the glider is above the calculated glide slope, and negative when it
is below the calculated glide slope.
. Bearing to target (Brg) = Direction towards the selected waypoint
. Steering course (To) = Difference in degrees between Bearing to target and Track over ground
. Arrival time (ETA) = Estimated time of arrival to the selected waypoint
. Established time (ETE) = Estimated time to go to selected waypoint
. Required L/D (Req. L/D) = Required glide ratio to reach the selected waypoint
. Current wind (Wind) = Current wind measurment
. Task remaining distance (tDis) = Distance remaining on the task
. Task arrival altitude (tArr) = Altitude required to complete the task
. Task established time (tETE) = Estimated time to go on task
. Task arrival time (tETA) = Estimated time of arrival to the finish
. Task Delta time (tDelta) = Task established time - Task remaining time
. Task remaining time (tRemain) = Remaining time until task time elapses
. Task required L/D (tL/D) = Required glide ration to complete the task
. Task speed (Tsk.Sp.) = Speed on task until the present position
. Last hour speed (60'.Sp) = Average speed achieved in the last 60 minutes
. Speed to Fly (STF) = Speed to fly according to MC theory which takes MC setting and sink into
account.
. GPS Status (GPS) = It displays the status of the GPS signal. It can be either NODATA, BAD, OK, 2D,
3D/x
. Target name (Target) = Name of the selected waypoint
. Distance to airspace (As.Dis) = Horizontal and vertical distance to the nearest airspace
. Required Mc (Req.Mc) = MacCready ring setting which will allow you to final glide exactly to the
Target. It shows Arrival Altitude when Arrival altitude for MC=0 is less than zero
. Task required speed (tReq.Sp) = Average speed you need to achieve to complete the task inside the
Task time
. Netto vertical speed (Netto) = Variometer reading corrected for the sink of the glider according to
the selected polar
. Current wind component (cWind) = Wind component in current direction of the flight. Positive values
are tailwind, negative values are headwind. Two numbers are displayed. First number is difference
between groundspeed and true airspeed. The second one is wind component derived from the calculated
wind at current altitude. When the two are significantly different you will know not to rely on the
calculated wind strength
. Required Altitude (ReqAlt) = Estimated altitude loss from current position to target taking into accout
current MC, bugs, ballast and wind settings
. Team position code (Team) = Code you need to tell to your teammate 73 so he can locate you easily
. Distance to target (DisInv) = Distance to selected target in inverted units as currently selected units.
If your units are kilometers, this distance will be in nautical miles
. Radial (Radial) = Magnetic direction from the waypoint to the current position
. Magnetic bearing to target (MagBrg) = Magnetic course to fly to get to the target
. Magnetic Track over ground (MagTrk) = Current magnetic course of flight
There are a few "dummy" navboxes which are used on devices with few hardware buttons. Due to the
lack of hardware buttons you may place "software" buttons in the shape of a Navbox on your screen. The
following "buttons" are supported:
. MC increase will increase the MacCready value by 0.1 m/s or 0.2 kts
. MC decrease will decrease the MacCready value by 0.1 m/s or 0.2 kts

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
imitation in order to pass this information to the pilot.

Thermal
Thermal assistant continuously analyzes the thermal when you are circling. You can decide when you
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.

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 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

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

100 meters below or above your current altitude is defined by the Inside 100m (i.e. roughly 300ft)
selection box. The color for aircrafts more than 100 meters above your current altitude is defined by the
first Above me selection box. Default colors are black for "Below me" and "Above me" and red for
"Inside 100m".

The Miscellaneous dialog takes care of all the rest of the options, not covered in other parts of the
application.
If all goes wrong, you can Restore all settings to default by checking this check box and restarting
the application.
Register on Today list will place a shortcut on your main page of the Pocket PC.
Add profile... button allows you to add new profiles to SeeYou Mobile. One application for several
profiles is when you fly different club gliders and need different setups for them (different loggers,
aircraft make and model etc.) Second reason to have more profiles is when several people use the same
Pocket PC in one glider. When there is more than one profile available, you get to choose it when startin
the application.
Reset "do not show again". There is several dialogs with "do not show again" labels at the bottom. If
you would like to see them all again, press this button.
Copy map settings... will replace settings of one map with settings from the other map. Please read
the message in the dialog carefully, so you don't accidentally replace the wrong map settings.

Hardware
Some GPS or Variometer devices send out proprietary NMEA data. In order to work with these, you will
need to tell SeeYou Mobile which GPS is connected through this dialog.
You should tell SeeYou Mobile which GPS is at the other end of the Serial cable for some devices in order
to be able to communicate with it. You can do that with the Device drop down list. Note that some
devices are recognized automatically. A dialog will pop up in that case to let you know that a device was
recognized.
MacCready, Ballast, Bugs settings may be sent or received to some devices. Uncheck Receive from
device if you don't want the device to change these settings in SeeYou Mobile. Uncheck Send to device
if you don't want to change settings on the device through SeeYou Mobile. Play sound alarms on
device lets you enable playing sound alarms on the device which is connected to SeeYou Mobile.
Current label tells you which device was recognized. A caption Generic GPS means that the device was
not recognized as one of the special devices.
Port settings... opens up the COM Options

LX 1600
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 57 dialog. You may also use the
Commands 93 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
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

Oudie
. 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,
Glide slope difference, Indicated airspeed or Leg speed)
. Num#2 lets you setup what the upper number on the display shows (Average vario, Current time,
Flight time or leg time)

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.
