XC Tracer II Flarm will available for pre-order exclusively in the webshop of XC Tracer, starting 10th of November 2018. Delivery will start before end of February 2019. Please take note that the vario is intended for pilots flying in Europe. CE certification is almost done; an FCC certification is not planned. And XC Tracer II Flarm is made for hang glider and paraglider pilots, not for pilots flying aircraft.

XC Tracer II Flarm does transmit a FLARM beacon, so that other aircraft around you will know that you are there. But the vario does also receive FLARM messages from paragliders and hang gliders, so you will be able to see where your buddies are. These licenses are included in the sales price. As an option it will be possible to install the FLARM obstacle database, but an annual license fee will have to be paid to FLARM for this.

You can use your XC Tracer II FLARM even as a live tracking device, websites like Open Glider Network or Glidertracker let you track FLARM devices in real time.
