Installing and uninstalling
Installing
The easiest way to install SeeYou Mobile on your Pocket PC is to download the installation file from
http://www.naviter.com
Run the downloaded file on your desktop PC and follow the instructions on the screen. Unless you change
something during the installation, it will be installed in \Program Files\mSeeYou folder on your device,
while terrain, airspace and waypoint files will be in \My Documents\mSeeYou folder.
A shortcut to SeeYou Mobile will be placed on the Today screen of your device. Use this icon to quickly
start the application.
Installing on a Storage Card
. Download SeeYou Mobile ZIP for Storage Card
. Insert Storage Card to your Card reader
. Unzip the contents of the downloaded ZIP file to the root of your Storage Card
. Make sure you keep the directory structure
. Insert the Storage Card to your PDA
You should now see the dialog asking you whether or not you wish to run SeeYou Mobile.
Uninstalling

Registering SeeYou Mobile
Unregistered version of SeeYou Mobile is 100% functional. It will however pop-up a dialog to ask for the
registration key every so often.
To be able to use SeeYou Mobile without interruption you should register SeeYou Mobile. A registration
key can be purchased online (http://www.naviter.com) or through our distributors worldwide. The
registration key allows you to install any upgrades free within the specified period. After this time, you
can still use SeeYou Mobile without limitations. To upgrade after the expiration of the upgrade key, you
need to purchase an upgrade to the original key.
To enter the registration key, go to the About 100 dialog box in Menu > ">>>" > About 100 . In order to
register SeeYou Mobile on your PDA or PNA device you need to enter your name in the field "Registered
to" exactly the same as it is written in the key (big or small letters are not important) then enter the key
in the field "Registration key"
Example:
2.3
Starting SeeYou Mobile
You can start SeeYou Mobile by tapping on the SeeYou Mobile icon on the Today screen of your PDA.
If SeeYou Mobile is installed on SD Card and your device supports autorun, then it will run automatically
as soon as you insert the SD Card into the slot.
If you prefer to do it the hard way - SeeYou Mobile is installed in \Program Files\mSeeYou by default.

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 131 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.

Header
gives you information on GPS Status, the waypoint you are navigating to, system information like low
battery, volume control and lets you minimize the application (the X button). Note that the X does not
close SeeYou Mobile, it just minimizes it. This is different than what you are used to in the desktop PC.
Map 58 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 83 by tapping on the Wind vector
. Map orientation 78 by tapping on the North arrow
. Flight properties 84 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 118 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.

Copying files to SeeYou Mobile
Mobile Wizard connects SeeYou with SeeYou Mobile 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.
1. Connect your Pocket PC to PC through Active Sync
2. Run SeeYou
3. 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
. Terrain (isolines)
. Terrain elevations (for AGL reading)
. Roads, Railroads, Rivers, Lakes and Towns
. 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.
. Destination folder can be either Pocket PC memory or local disk. Choose your preference through the
radio buttons.
. 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.
Use Ctrl+Up, Ctrl+Down to zoom out and zoom in. Click on the the borders of the map to move
horizontally and vertically. This is the same procedure as in the other Map views in SeeYou.
Fourth page shows progress in transferring or saving files.
Once the transfer has completed successfully, you may close Mobile wizard with the Finish button.
If you get a connection error, first check whether or not SeeYou Mobile was closed on the Pocket PC. It is
important to understand the difference between the "X" button in Pocket PC and "X" button in desktop
Windows. The "X" on Pocket PC works more like "minimize" in Windows. To really quit SeeYou Mobile
you need to go to Menu > Next > "Exit".
You know SeeYou Mobile is not running when it is not listed under Start > Settings > System > Memory
> Running programs. If it's there, stop it.
Then you will be able to communicate with SeeYou Mobile through Mobile Wizard.

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 131 , then change input to "File". Press the "..." button and choose a flight you wish to
replay. Alternatively you can go to Menu > Logbook > choose the flight you wish to replay > Tools >
Replay flight. Then 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
118 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
In general - every GPS with an NMEA output is compatible with SeeYou Mobile. What you need is the
correct wiring and correct settings in the GPS device. Below is a list of devices with particularities that
you need to check before can make a successful connection.
To check whether or not Pocket PC is receiving data from the GPS, go to Menu > Settings > Harware >
Terminal. If you can see sentences being displayed in a once-per-second rate, then your Port Settings
are setup correctly.
It is assumed that SeeYou Mobile is configured to communicate on COM 1, Baud rate 4800, No Parity, 8
Bits and Stop bit 1. If not stated otherwise, these settings are assumed in Menu > Settings > Input >
Port Settings. It is also assumed that the Pocket PC COM cable is the one you can use to connect the
device to the PC through Active Sync. Note that proprietary cables can be made which can save you from
having to use a null-modem adapter by reversing pins Tx and Rx.
EXTERNAL WIRED GPS UNITS
These units connect to the Pocket PC through a COM cable connected to the connector at the bottom of
the Pocket PC device.
FLASH CARD/SLEEVE/BLUETOOTH GPS DEVICES
An overwhelming number of these devices is available worldwide. No standardization has been achieved
between the manufacturers. That means that each device connects to the PDA with different settings,
sometimes even by a single manufacturer. We therefore ask you to use this table as reference and help
us build a better database by telling us how your device connects to SeeYou Mobile. Your best reference
is the manual for your device.
Examples for external wired GPS units:
LX NAV
V7, S80 are fully supported. Cables are available from Naviter or LX NAV.
LX Navigation

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 141 and click the "Manage Profiles..." button.

SeeYou Mobile
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)
. Delete a profile
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".

How to
16
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 135
Pilot name and Glider type settings 137
Hardware that is connected to SeeYou Mobile 142
Navboxes for Map1 118
Navboxes for Map2 118 (they are separate,
remember?)

Set takeoff altitude
Setting the takeoff altitude correctly could be the difference between a successful and a frustrating end
of the flight.
An Oudie 2 without being connected to an external source of pressure data will only use GPS altitude.
There is little to nothing you can do with that and this is the reason why such flights are ok to record the
joy and excitement about the flight but are insufficient to provide proof or staying outside official airspace
regardless if this is in a competition or on a record flight.
Oudie IGC and Oudie 2 connected to an external source of pressure data will record extremely accurate
altitudes. The altitude in the Oudie IGC and all other IGC approved flight recorders is recorded at the
standard pressure of 1013.25 hPa. In order to know you current altitude above mean sea level and your
current flight level altitude the altitudes need to be corrected to correspond with the real world.
There are several ways how Oudie / SeeYou Mobile can correct the takeoff altitude. It will typically
assume that the pressure recorded by the pressure sensor is relative to the standard atmosphere
pressure of 1013.25 hPa (but it is even possible to correct for that, see below). It is quite possible to
© 2003 - 2015 ... Naviter d.o.o.
17
SeeYou Mobile
correct the altitudes to QNH automatically with the data which is available to Oudie. If you get the from
an external source (such as the ATC tower or the competition task sheet) then it is possible to enter the
values manually as well.
In order to correct the takeoff altitude you need to go to Menu > MC & Alt. dialog.
By default the Auto QNH checkbox is checked. Auto QNH will try to correct the takeoff altitude to your
current altitude by searching for a nearby airport or by using the Ground elevation at your location or (if
all else fails) using a very much averaged GPS altitude (but the latter is only a fallback and should not
normally happen since there is a worldwide terrain database already installed on each Oudie). Auto QNH
setting will give you a very good idea about the current pressure level and it works automatically without
your input.
If you want to change the altitude manually you should disable the Auto QNH navbox and enter the
takeoff altitude manually. If the Linked checkbox is checked (which it is by default) then the pressure
level will increase accordingly.
Typically in a competition you could get a complete set of data from the competition organization. In this
case remove the Auto QNH checkbox AND the Linked checkbox. Enter the takeoff altitude AND the QNH
pressure given from the competition then press ok. This way you will see exactly the same altitudes
during your flight as the ones that you will be scored by later in the evening. DO NOT set the "linked"
checkbox back in this case because it will change the pressure level back to the "linked" value.

Manage airspace warnings
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 - 2015 ... Naviter d.o.o.
19
SeeYou Mobile
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.

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 126 ).
It whistles a selected amount of seconds or degrees (see Settings - Thermal 126 ) before the glider will
reach the same part of the circle where maximum lift was reached in the previous circle.

SeeYou Mobile
3. Thermal assistant graphics is displayed if variance for displaying the thermal assistant is large
enough (see Settings - Thermal 126 ). 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.

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

Using Side view
Side view operates it two different ways. In free flight (no active task or "go to" navigation) it will slice
the terrain and airspaces in your current heading. If you are flying a task or navigating to a certain
waypoint than the Side view will slice the terrain and airspaces from your position towards the active
waypoint.

You will need to go to the Menu > Task 93 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 96 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.

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

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 118 . 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!

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 78 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 - 2015 ... Naviter d.o.o.
43
SeeYou Mobile
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 118 . 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 133 .
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 116 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.

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:
© 2003 - 2015 ... Naviter d.o.o.
45
SeeYou Mobile
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 140 .
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 124 ) 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 - 2015 ... Naviter d.o.o.
How to
46
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:

47
SeeYou Mobile
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.

Use Vario in Oudie IGC
As a side effect from having a really good altitude sensor for the IGC approval the Oudie IGC is also able

own huge battery it is still quite useful when everything else fails.
There is a small checkbox "Mute vario" underneath the Volume entry. Unmute the vario if you want to
use it!

Map page
Map view is the main SeeYou Mobile window. It contains the following elements:
. Glider position 64
. Arrow towards the North 64
. Wind vector 65
. Glideslope indicator 65
. Speed to Fly indicator 66
. Vector map 66
. Flight trace 66
. Terrain collision 67
. Airspace warning 68
. Navboxes 118
. Animation speed 69
. Header line 70
. Command bar 70
A function is assigned to each one of these elements. It is described in the chapters you will access by
following the above links.
An important feature of the Map page is Cursor info
59
.
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.
Overview of the most important features of the Map view:

. Flarm 61
. Airspace 62
. Task 63
If either of the items above is present within the Drag limit 141 distance from the tap, such information is
presented in a dialog.

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.

Flarm
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.

Arrow towards the North
Map orientation 78 in SeeYou Mobile is not always "North up" It can be anything, therefore the North
arrow is always pointed in the direction of true North. By tapping the North arrow a menu will open up
where you can select any of the other possible Map orientations.

straight ahead of you.
3. Number in the middle is MacCready setting.
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

There are 5 different styles of the flight trace:
. Fixed
. Altitude
Path colored with dark blue represents highest current QNH altitude of the flight.
. Vario
Path colored with red represents high vertical speed in contrast to blue.
. Ground Speed
Path colored with red represents current fastest ground speed in contrast to blue.
. MacCready (MC)
When trace is colored to "MC", colors 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
4.9
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. Terrain collision warning can be turn on/off in the Display options

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.

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
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. By default Oudie will try to use its
automatics to select the correct takeoff altitude.
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. By default Oudie will try to use its automatics to select the correct QNH.
Linked
When the values are linked then changing one value will also change the other one. Unlink only if you are
instructed by someone to do so.
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
© 2003 - 2015 ... Naviter d.o.o.
Menu
86
Depending on the Unit settings you can enter the ballast either as the amount of water carried on board
or as Wing loading.
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.
Vario mute
This functionality is only available on Oudie IGC. If you untick this box the Oudie will give you an
uncompensated vario sound. Great for when all other instruments have failed.
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.

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 84 dialog.

There are 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.
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 90 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).

7.10.3 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 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
than the length of the screen, the keyboard closes and then 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):
Filter by waypoint type allows you to select which types of waypoints will be displayed in the Goto dialog.
In the example below, the button "Landable" was pressed and only landable types of waypoints remain
selected and will be displayed in the Goto dialog 87 :

Elev = Elevation
This is the reference altitude for the point in question. This is the altitude that is taken into account when
calculating the final glide.
Direction
This option changes the direction of the observation zone. It can either be towards the Next or Previous
point, a Fixed value (Angle12) or Symmetric to the courses in and out of the waypoint.
Angle12
If Fixed value is selected from the Direction combo box, a direction of the sector will be symmetrical to
this value.
Radius1, Angle1, Radius2 and Angle2 will setup the sector in the same way as already used to in the

7.11.5 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.

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.

Map
This dialog allows you to setup the appearance of the map in Map view 58 . SeeYou Mobile uses CIT
maps for rendering the terrain. It is the same map as in the desktop version of SeeYou.
Show map check box will enable the display of the Vector map if checked.
Terrain
You can choose from several levels of detail of the terrain which is being rendered. When terrain is Off,
you will still see Water bodies, Roads, Railroads, Towns and labels on the screen. With the setting at
Low contour lines will appear approximately 300m apart. With the setting at Medium, contour lines
appear about 100m apart. With the setting at High, you get exactly what you are used to in the desktop
SeeYou version. We recommend using Medium setting for the older 200MHz processors while the new
400MHz processors are fine with the setting at High.

You may choose the Color and Fill for the FAI Area. Show area checkbox determines whether or not
the FAI area will be displayed in the first place. Note that you can control this option much more
conveniently through the Display Options 78 dialog.
The Rotate button will change where the FAI Area is drawn. If the currently flown triangle is not deep
enough it will switch sides over the longest currently flown leg, giving you the option to fly the triangle in
the left or right direction. Once the Triangle is deep enough, it will rotate between the legs so you can
accurately determine where to fly.
Rotate on click refers to the FAI Area when it is drawn on the moving map. A tap on the area will
rotate the area as described above.
Show km. lines will draw the curves connecting locations where the triangle has the same distance.

Navboxes
Navigational boxes are one of the most important parts of 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.
Navigation navboxes:
. Target name (Target) = Name of the selected waypoint
. Distance to target (Dis) = Distance to the selected waypoint
. Steering course (To) = Difference in degrees between Bearing to target and Track over ground

. Battery info (Bat) = Displays battery status. It can be either Full, Chrg (Charging), Ext (External) or a
percentage value of the battery status
Altitude navboxes:
. Altitude QNH (Alt) = Altitude above sea level
. Flight level (FL) = Altitude above standard atmosphere pressure
. Height AGL (Agl) = Altitude above the ground elevation vertically below the glider position
. Altitude m QNH (Alt m) = Altitude in meters QNH regardless of the units you are currently using
. Altitude ft QNH (Alt ft) = Altitude in feet QNH regardless of the units you are currently using
. Ground elevation (Gnd) = Terrain elevation vertically below the glider position
. Arrival altitude (Arrival) = Expected Arrival altitude at the selected waypoint calculated by taking the
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.
. Required Altitude (ReqAlt) = Estimated altitude loss from current position to target taking into accout
current MC, bugs, ballast and wind settings
. Task arrival altitude (tArr) = Arrival altitude to goal from your position with taking into account current
MC, bugs, ballast and wind settings.

. Required L/D (Req. L/D) = Required glide ratio to reach the selected waypoint
. Thermal L/D (Ther. L/D) = Glide ration since last circling phase finished
. Arrival altitude (Arrival) = Expected Arrival altitude at the selected waypoint calculated by taking the
distance, MC, wind, glider polar, bugs and ballast into account. It is
. Required Altitude (ReqAlt) = Estimated altitude loss from current position to target taking into accout
current MC, bugs, ballast and wind settings
. 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 L/D (tL/D) = Required glide ratio to complete the task

account.
. Task speed (Tsk.Sp.) = Speed on task until the present position
. Task required speed (tReq.Sp) = Average speed you need to achieve to complete the task inside the
Task time
. Speed Last hour (60'.Sp) = Average speed achieved in the last 60 minutes
Vario navboxes:
. Thermal vario (VarT) = average vario since beginning of circling
. Average vertical speed (VarA) = average vario for the last 20s

Wind navboxes:
. Current wind (Wind) = Current wind measurment
. 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
Airspace navboxes:
. Nearest airspace - Horizontally (Near AS.H) = Distance to horizontally nearest airspace where you
are not "inside". The caption of this navbox will show airspace name. Tapping on this navbox will
temporarily arm this airspace so you can turn it off if you wish.
. Nearest airspace - Altitude (Near AS.V) = Relative altitude to the horizontally nearest airspace. It
can be either negative if you are below the lower limit of the airspace, positive if you are above the
upper limit of the airspace or "Inside" if your altitude is in between the lower and the upper limit of the
airspace in question.
. Nearest airspace - Vertically (Near AS.V) = Relative altitude to the airspace at the location of the
glider. It can be either negative if you are below an airspace , positive if you are above an airspace or
"Inside" if your altitude is in between the lower and the upper limit of the airspace in question.

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.
8.10
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.
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.

Input
The input dialog lets you choose from three different input methods for displaying a flight in SeeYou
Mobile.
Serial
You will need the Serial input to be checked to fly. On the Oudie 2 you are expected to choose the COM 1
to use internal GPS or COM 4 or Bluetooth if you are connecting to an external source.
Note: On Oudie IGC COM 4 is always selected as your input. It is also possible to select an external
source of data from Bluetooth or though the wired serial port cable (supplied in the box) but Oudie IGC
will always use its internal approved GPS and altitude sensor. It will mux this together with the external
data for navigation.
The Port Settings... button will let you choose preferences for the GPS 133 .
Bluetooth button allows you to connect to a Bluetooth serial device
NODATA reset after will close and reopen the COM port if NODATA is received for the selected amount
of seconds.

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.

You can fully customize which button takes over which action through the Commands dialog.
There are three groups of buttons available through SeeYou Mobile. Note that each PDA may have
different buttons, located at different places and some will not have all of the buttons at all. This is all no
problem for SeeYou Mobile. It will detect which buttons your PDA has and will operate accordingly.
. 5-way navigation button (arrows and enter)
. Buttons on the casing of the PDA
. 5 software buttons in the Command bar of the SeeYou Mobile window.
. Keyboard letters
This way you are sure to be able to setup your PDA to match your preferences. Select a button, then

8.18
Log
SeeYou Mobile does also log a flight and produces an IGC file. Note that this IGC file is not secure by
GFAC (IGC) standards and therefore can't be used for claiming badges and records. It can however be
analyzed in SeeYou or similar software after the flight.
This dialog lets you enter the Header information for the flights recorded with SeeYou Mobile.
Information on Pilot, Copilot, Registration, Competition ID and Class is collected here.
Interval spin box lets you select the interval between consecutive fixes that are recorded while Enable
logging check box turns logging on and off. The location of the stored IGC file is determined through the
Settings > Files 135 dialog.

User Interface (UI)
Screen orientation may not be supported on all devices. If certain or all directions are greyed out then
your devices does not support rotating the screen in that particular direction. The directions given are
relative to the default orientation:
0 = default orientation (Portrait on PDA, landscape on PNA)
90 = 90 degrees clock-wise from the default orientation
180 = upside down from the portrait orientation
270 = 90 degrees anti-clockwise from the default orientation
Changing the screen orientation requires a reboot of the Oudie in order for all changes to take effect.
Dialog timeout sets up how long a dialog will wait for you to press something before it quits and
returns back to navigation. Dialogs subjected to this are Zoom, Flight Properties, Wind, Map orientation
and similar. Note that the Settings dialog is not subject to disappearing as we consider you know what
you are doing when you are going through the Settings.

Flarm
Customizing the Flarm Radar 44 can be done through Menu > Settings > Flarm. This page only appears
when Flarm messages are received in the incoming NMEA stream.
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
screen. If you were previously navigating towards the aircraft in question, the Target remains blank after
this period.
Show Labels: defines whether or not the labels with Friendly name (if entered), altitude and average
vario are visible.
Transparent Labels: defines whether or not the labels are transparent. When the labels are not
transparent (which is the default setting) then there is a white background behind the labels for each
Flarm unit. The labels may overlap. In that case the label for the device that you are navigating towards

(the one that is selected as Goto) is drawn on top of all labels. If you are not navigating towards a
particular Flarm device, then the closest label is drawn on top of the other ones.
Track length [s]: This is the duration for which you may see each Flarm's track in the Map view.
Show tracks: defines whether or not the tracks of the Flarm devices are visible in Map view.
Colors are designed to present three values. The color for aircraft more than 100 meters below your
current altitude is defined by the first Below me selection box. The color for aircraft that are less than
100 meters below or above your current altitude is defined by the Inside 100m (i.e. roughly 300ft)
selection box. The color for aircraft 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".

LX1600
WARNING: The content of this page also depends on the manufacturer of the mentioned variometer
which is no longer in production. It was originally designed for LX 1600 but many other models followed
which can also use these settings. Unfortunately firmware of the variometers is slightly different
therefore we can not guarantee that this page works with all firmware versions and hardware revisions
of the varios this page was intended for. For more information please contact LX Navigation.
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 84 dialog. You may also use the
Commands 133 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
. 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

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.
