XC Tracer Mini II GPS is here! The vario is available from stock and can be ordered directly in the webshop. It took more than 20 months and more than 25 prototypes to develop the new vario.
New firmware for XC Tracer II27.05.2018
The new firmware for XC Tracer II is available in the download section. Major improvements are a completely new and vastly improved sensor data fusion code, a simplified config file, an improved logger that logs IGC and KML in parallel, and finally a reduction in power consumption.
XC Tracer Mini II28.03.2018
XC Tracer Mini II is an acoustic variometer powered by a solar cell. The lag-free indication of lift / sink makes it much easier to find and core thermals than when using a conventional variometer. Compared to the legendary XC Tracer the sensor data fusion got vastly improved, making flying in thermals even more convenient.
The new firmware for XC Tracer II is almost ready for release. The Sensor Data Fusion code was programmed from scratch. The result is a variometer that is even more precise than before, and in the same time the energy consumption even lower than before.
