There is a new XC Tracer available, XC Tracer Mini III GPS. It is basically an XC Tracer Mini II GPS with a new chip for creating louder vario tones, and a new BLE chip, and a new enclosure. But why change the successful XC Tracer Mini II GPS that was used by more than 50% of the XAlps pilots? 



The switch that is used for switching on/off and changing the volume is no longer in production. So we had to modify the pcb anyway for a new switch, that would have been easy. But this required changes in the mold for the red button. But the molding company didn't want to do it. So we had to order a new mold from a different company. But would it be wise to produce just the same thing, or incorporate the lessons learned (how to make louder vario tones for example) while developing XC Tracer II Flarm? In the interest of the customers we decided to integrate louder vario tones. But this requires different software too, so in the end we needed a new name in order not to have any confusion with firmware updates. That's why the new vario is called XC Tracer Mini III GPS. The new vario is avaible from stock in the webshop from www.xctracer.com,free shipping worldwide included.
