XC Tracer Mini II GPS is the successor of XC Tracer II, a proven and reliable flight instrument for paraglider pilots. Many pilots use XC Tracer II for competitions and for long XC flights. The time-lag free indication of the climb/sink rate using beeping tones makes it much easier to find and core thermals then when using a conventional variometer.
You can use XC Tracer Mini II GPS also as an IGC and KML logger, the IGC files are accepted by FAI for paragliding competitions, and IGC and KML are logged at the same time. The battery will be charged from the high efficiency solar cells, but you can charge the battery also over the Micro USB cable that is shipped with XC Tracer Mini II GPS. You can send data like speed, altitude, climb rate, heading etc over BLE or over USB to a smartphone, a tablet or an e-reader. With XC Tracer Mini II GPS you can even send data over to a Kobo Mini or a Kobo Glo HD without the need of an external battery, nor is it necessary to modify the Kobo. Just upload the flight software you want to the Kobo, that's it. XC Tracer Mini II GPS is equipped with a scratch resistant coating for the solar cell, and the GNSS receiver uses signals from GPS, Glosnass and Galileo satellites.
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 variometer the sensor data fusion algorithm got vastly improved.
XC Tracer Mini II has a built-in solar cell that delivers 3x more energy than is needed for running the device (when oriented perpendicular to the sun). The surplus energy is stored in a lithium polymer battery. The variometer will run for 20 hours with a fully charged battery without any sun.
