Navigator II Revision History
This page contains historical data in regard to previous software
revisions of Glide Navigator II. Versions are released in increasing
order. Version 2.0 was released after version 1.0, etc. The Beta
versions are candidates for future released versions so they come before the
actual release. For example, Version 2.0 was followed by Version 2.1
Beta 1, Beta 2, etc., and eventually the released Version 2.1.
You can download the new version on the
January 31, 2008
The only software change to this new version is that the password scheme has
changed. The licensing strategy has also changed. If you do not
feel that the new password feature is important to you, you do not need to
upgrade. If you already own a license to GN II you can upgrade to
version 3.0 by purchasing a new password.
- Password Tied to Pilot Name
In all previous versions of Glide Navigator II, the password was tied to
either a PDA or GPS serial number. That was a very secure way for
use to limit the pirating of the software. However, it was often a
problem for pilots because when a PDA or GPS died you couldn't get a new
PDA or GPS up and running with GN II until a new password was purchased.
That was especially frustrating when at a soaring contest - or when
about to take-off on any soaring adventure. Starting in version
3.0 the password is tied to the pilot's name. When ordering the
customer enters the "Pilot Name" (such as "Paul Remde") instead of a PDA
or GPS serial number. That is much easier than trying to find the
GPS serial number or the correct PDA serial number. The Pilot Name
is then used to generate a unique 8-character password. The user
then enters both the Pilot Name and the password into GN II. GN II
will not connect to a GPS until a matching Pilot Name and password are
entered into GN II. The pilot name is displayed when GN II is
started. Since the password is tied to the pilot's name only, it
will work with any GPS or PDA so you won't need a new password when you
upgrade your PDA or GPS in the future. This new password scheme
makes it easier to use a pirated name and password combination, but we
are hoping that glider pilots will appreciate our efforts and purchase a
- Licensing Changes for Syndicates
In the past GN II was licensed to either a person on a glider.
Syndicates that own a glider could get multiple licenses for multiple
PDAs owned by multiple syndicate members. That is no longer the
case. All new purchases will be tied to the pilot.
Syndicates with multiple PDAs owned by multiple pilots will all need to
buy licenses tied to each pilot name. All syndicates that
purchased a license for earlier versions of GN II can get passwords for
their syndicate members by purchasing a new password for each pilot.
- Licensing Changes for License
All new purchases will be for a specific pilot. They cannot be
transferred to anyone else - ever. If you sell PDA, please enter a
bad password into GN II.
- Lower Price for a New License
The price for a new license for GN II has been lowered from $149 to $95.
This was done because no major new features have been added in several
years. We are not actively working on new features for the
product. When new features are released in a new version we will
probably increase the price.
- Higher Price for New Passwords
If you want to use version 3.0 you will need to purchase a
new password for $20. If you do
not feel that the new password feature is important to you, you do not
need to upgrade.
June 1, 2006
- Updates for
Competitors in World Soaring Competition
This update probably only applies to pilots flying in the world soaring
competition. It allows 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Km turn area radii and
counts by 5 above 5 Km.
March 31, 2006
- Waypoint file
error bomb fix
Certain errors in waypoint and airspace files would cause the software
to lock-up while displaying "loading files" or something similar.
This fixes some of the causes of that problem, but probably not all.
The problem is ultimately with the waypoint and airspace files, but
ideally GN II should not crash when finding an error. If you run into
this problem please e-mail your waypoint and airspace files to me.
March 30, 2006
Added 19200 baud
option for GPS data. This is necessary for users of LX7007
March 15, 2006
This version fixes a number of bugs and adds a few new features.
Unfortunately, we don't have an exact list of changes because changes were
made as requested over a period of time. Below are a few items that have
changed. Let us know if you find any other changes or bug fixes that we
- Support for US Contest Rule Changes
Turn Area Tasks (Assigned Area Tasks) now support a maximum area
radius of 30 statute miles.
Turn Area Tasks (Assigned Area Tasks) support of to 8 turnpoints.
Standard Tasks such as "Assigned Tasks" and "Modified Assigned Tasks"
support up to 14 turnpoints.
- Improved "PDA Logger"
Flight logs generated by Glide Navigator II as you fly and saved on
a memory card now have an improved header file which makes it easier to
view the files in SeeYou and StrePla. Glide Navigator II still
does not allow you to enter a Pilot Name or Glider Type into the
software so you will need to edit those data fields in the IGC file
manually. Note: This relates only to flight logs generated by GN
II as you fly. It does not relate to flight logs downloaded from
external GPS flight recorders.
- Airspace File Altitudes
SUA altitudes in the
SUA files can be AMSL as well as ALT and MSL.
Version 2.3 Beta 18
February 22, 2005
This version fixes a number of bugs and adds a few new features.
- Volkslogger serial number support
A customer reported that the password that was created for his
Volkslogger serial number was not working. This version should fix
that problem so that Glide Navigator II will report the Volkslogger
serial number in the "Bad Password" error window and accept a valid
- Option to disable panning
Some customers want to be able to disable panning on the map screen.
That is now possible. Go to the Map Orientation screen to disable
- GPS Altitude Data Lost Warnings
Since many pilots are using GPS altitude for final glide calculations
Glide Navigator II now displays warnings if altitude data becomes
unavailable due to bad antenna positioning or satellite locations.
- Support for LX Navigation Colibri, LX20 GPS Flight Recorders
and LX5000 and LX7000 flight computers
Glide Navigator II can now accept pressure altitude from these devices.
Passwords for Glide Navigator II can also be tied to their serial
numbers. It may take up to a minute for Glide Navigator II to
recognize those devices. Altitudes displayed may seem odd while it
is trying to recognize the devices.
Version 2.3 Beta 11
December 30, 2004
This version fixes a number of bugs and adds a few new features.
- Flight Log Downloads from 302 & 302A
Glide Navigator II can now download secure flight logs from Cambridge
302 and 302A units.
- Pocket PC Flight Logs with IGC
Pocket PC generated flight logs are now saved with an IGC filename.
This is a very nice feature. In the past the filename was always
the same and it would write over old flight logs if you didn't rename
them. The Pocket PC generated flight logs are flight logs that GN
II creates as you fly. It has nothing to do with flight logs
downloaded from a GPS-NAV, 302 or 302A.
- Baud Rate Selection Options
While most GPS units communicate at the NMEA 0183 specified 4800 Baud
rate, a few unique GPS units communicate at non-standard baud rates.
For example, the NAVMAN GPS sleeve communicates at 57 kBaud. GN II
now supports 4800, 9600 and 57 K Baud rates. The baud rate can be
changed in Menu 5 by pressing the "Set Up Comm Port" button.
- 302A Support Repaired
Support for Cambridge 302A units had been reduced for a time. GN
II now works great again with 302A units.
- Fixed bug that kept GN II from running
on newer Pocket PCs. It works fine now on all tested Pocket PCs.
- Fixed a bug that reported falsely that
GPS-NAV flight logs were downloaded with a security failure. They
download always worked but it used to say the process failed when in
fact it worked fine and produced secure files.
Version 2.3 Beta 6
November 27, 2004
This version is designed to fix the problem with the exchange of the
MacCready value with Cambridge 302 units. Please help us test this.
The previous version seemed to work fine on the ground but failed to
transfer the MacCready after a while in flight. Let us know how it
Version 2.3 Beta 3
September 7, 2004
This new version from Chip Garner has several bug fixes and 2 major new
features. This new beta version still works with your existing GN II
The first new feature is a "Turn Here" option in the task list when you are
inside a Turn Area Task (AAT) turn area. This was not implemented with
a new button on the screen, but using a new option in the task list.
Selecting "Turn Here" does 2 things. It moves the move-point to the
current location and makes the next task waypoint the active waypoint.
If you change your mind and want to navigate further into the turn area you
can re-select the point at which you turned. The "Turn Here" option
will then re-appear in the task list.
Comm Port Selection
Customers with CF card or BlueTooth GPS units sometimes had trouble getting
GN II to find their GPS. In past Glide Navigator II automatically
checked many comm ports in a predefined order. That could take a long
time if your GPS was on comm port 7 or 8. Also, GN II would sometimes
crash if it tried to connect to a non-existent comm port. The crash
bug has been fixed and now you can select which comm port you want GN II to
check first for your GPS. If it does not find a GPS on the user
specified comm port it will try to find the GPS automatically. Once it
finds a GPS it saves the comm port in the configuration file so that it can
connect quickly next time. The comm port selection dialog box is
available in Menu 5. Tip: Most GPS units that connect to the Pocket PC using
a cable connected to the bottom of the Pocket PC use comm port 1.
Beyond that there is no standard. CF card and BlueTooth GPS units can
be found on comm ports 1 through 9.
- Cambridge 302 MacCready Exchange - There
had been a bug such that after some period of time the exchange of
MacCready from the Pocket PC to the 302 would stop working. This has
- Pan - There had been a bug such that
using the zoom arrows at the bottom of the screen and then touching the
screen before the turn arrows went away would cause a random pan.
This has been fixed.
- Password issues - There had been some
password issues with some Pocket PCs and Cambridge GPS-NAV units.
This has been fixed.
Version 2.2 Beta 3
June 1, 2004
The previous version did not allow the user to set the "Exchange McC"
and "Exch. Active WPT" checkboxes when using a Cambridge 302 or GPS-NAV.
They were accidentally removed as the menus were changed slightly.
This new version allows the checkboxes to be accessed by going to Menu 4 and
pressing the "GPS Settings" button. If you used version 2.2 beta 2 and
the exchange of MacCready was not working properly, please try this version
and be sure to check the "Exchange McC" checkbox.
Version 2.2 Beta 2
May 27, 2004
This new version fixes bugs related to the Cambridge 302A (CFR)
GPS/logger. In the past GN was confusing the 302A for a 302 and was
displaying incorrect final glide and wind information as a result. It
now works great with a 302A. It uses the pressure altitude data from
the 302A and calculates wind speed and direction while circling. Also,
in the last beta version we were not able to compile for a 1550, but that
issue has been resolved so this version has been compiled for all the Pocket
PC types supported in the recent past. Customers that have tested
sending task declarations to the 302 and 302A using the Beta 1 version have
reported that it works great.
Version 2.2 Beta 1
May 9, 2004
This new version allows Glide Navigator II to send task declarations to
a Cambridge 302 or 302A.
Unlike some past beta versions that were very solid and recommended to
everyone, this new beta version has not yet been thoroughly tested.
Please help us test it by sending a task declaration to your 302 or 302A and
going for a flight. Then download the flight log and verify that the
declaration data exactly matches the waypoints from your waypoint file. I
have not been able to test it extensively yet.
Be sure to enable task declarations in GN by going to Menu 2 and selecting
the "Task Options" button and then putting a check in the "Declare Tasks On"
Version 2.1 - Release
April 2, 2004
This is identical to version 2.1 Beta 10. I decided to call it a
"released" version due to confusion with customers about the beta version.
Version 2.1 Beta 10
November 21, 2003
This version features:
- This release will only be valuable to
customers using "Generic GPS" units. There had been a bug such that
GN automatically switched the GPS type back to "GPS-NAV" when it connected
to any GPS. It was therefore necessary to change the GPS type to
"Generic GPS" every time you connected to a GPS. It now keeps the
setting on the GPS type you select.
Version 2.1 Beta 9
August 18, 2003
This version features:
- Start Cylinder Warning Bug Fixed?
- Pan distance increased?
Several customers complained that the pan was often activated when they
didn't want it to be. I think Chip increased the distance you must
drag before a pan is done.
- Dickie Feakes reports from the UK that "It
fixed a bug on the perpendicular start line when run on my Aero
- Support for Communication Port 8.
This allows GN to work with the Emtac/Socket/CruxII BlueTooth GPS.
- I don't have much data yet from Chip on
what other bugs have been fixed. Please let me know if you find
something that was broken and is now fixed. I'll be doing extensive
Version 2.1 Beta 5
March 31, 2003
This version features:
- Password Bug Fixed - Version 2.1
Beta 3 didn't find the GPS serial number correctly a therefore displayed a
"bad password" error. The bug only appeared when connected to a GPS.
- Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC password support
- This version fixes a bug which didn't allow GN to access the UUID
serial number in some Axims.
- Data Exchange Options - The
"Exchange Active Waypoint" and "Exchange MacCready" options that used to
be found in the Menu 3 / Display Options / Next, are now found in Menu 4
in the "Data Exchange" dialog box.
Version 2.1 Beta 3
March 17, 2003
This version features:
- Improved Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
password support. The previous beta version didn't actually use
the internal UUID (serial number) in the Dell. It used other device
specific information. This version uses the first 16 characters of the
UUID. You no longer have to do the detailed procedure that was
required for version 2.1 beta 2.
- Support for passwords tied to the UUID of
HP iPAQ 5400 series Pocket PCs. The UUID displayed in the Pocket PC
"Asset Viewer" application is out of sequence with the number that GN can
access, so it is best to run GN and enter a test password ("NOTAREAL" or
anything else) so that GN can then display the UUID it is getting from the
Version 2.1 Beta 2
March 7, 2003
In addition to several bug fixed, the new features are listed below.
- Logging IGC files to Pocket PC internal
memory - If you enable IGC file logging, Glide Navigator will now save
the IGC file to internal Pocket PC memory if an SD card or CF card is not
available. Please be cautious that you do not use up all your
internal memory as it will impact performance of Glide Navigator.
Eventually we will use the IGC filename format which includes the date,
etc. For now it creates a file called "FakeIGCfile". If you
want to keep the log file you will need to rename it after your flight.
Otherwise the file will be overwritten the next time you fly or run
GN in Simulator mode.
- Waypoint Arrival Radius can now be set
to 1 mile to support a new US contest rule. In the past it could
not be set higher than 0.5 miles.
- Support for Dell Axim Pocket PCs.
We can now generate passwords for Dell Axim Pocket PCs. To get a
password you must follow these steps:
- Be sure to enter your name into the
Owner Name field into your Pocket PC. You can access it from Start
Menu / Settings / Owner Information icon.
- Run the Sys Info application available
from the Start Menu / Settings / System tab and e-mail me the last 16
digits of the "UUID".
- Run Glide Navigator.
- Go to Menu 4 and select "Change
- Press OK with any text in the password
box. It will tell you you have entered a bad password.
- e-mail me the "PDA SN" displayed in the
"Bad Password" dialog box.
- I will e-mail you the password for your
- Support for special start arc for use
in Argentina. It is available as an option in the "Start Gates" dialog
box found in Menu 3.
- Removed backlight disabling.
Years ago, it was decided that the software should automatically turn off
the backlight to help conserve the glider's battery. That worked
great with Compaq Aero 1500 Pocket PCs, but it is a problem with new
Pocket PC which benefit from having the backlight on in flight. If
you had previously run Glide Navigator or Pocket-NAV on your Pocket PC,
you will want to disable (uncheck) the Pocket PC setting labeled
"Turn off backlight if device not used for X min" That option is
available on iPAQs under: Start Menu / Settings / System / Backlight /
- Fixed a long time font issue on iPAQs.
In the past, a strange font was being used by WinCE that had some numbers
transposed down. It looked strange. It has now been fixed.
- Improved how GN looks for memory cards.
In the past GN had some issues finding SD and CF flash memory cards in
some Pocket PCs due to differences in how the Pocket PCs named the cards.
The software now looks for a variety of different names. It will
still have issues with Pocket PCs that refer to the memory cards in
languages other than English. Let us know if GN cannot find the
memory card on your Pocket PC.
January 9, 2003
This is the released version after much testing with the beta versions of
2.0. A few minor bugs were fixed since version 2.0 Beta 8.
Version 2.0 Beta 8
Note: This is not a major revision. There is no need to download it
unless you need the new features listed below.
- If the Equipment type is set to "Generic
GPS", Glide Navigator reads the GPS Altitude from the GPGGA NMEA message.
That means that differential final glide can be displayed using any GPS!
To set the Equipment type, go to Menu 4 and select the "Change Equipment"
Note: The GPS altitude sent from the GPS will probably go to zero
if the GPS does not have a 3D position fix. This should not be a
problem as long as the antenna has a good view of the sky. If the
final glide display is set to show differential altitude, it will appear
that you cannot make it to your waypoint because Glide Navigator will
think you are at an altitude of 0. It should be obvious when this
- There was a minor change to the format of
the IGC file logged to the flash card. The files generated by Glide
Navigator can now be viewed in
Version 2.0 Beta 7
- Fixed an issue with new versions of the
CAI 302 which caused incorrect final glide data to be displayed and
ballast data to "change on it's own". There must have been a change
in the 302. Therefore, old versions (before firmware version 2.50)
of the 302 may (or may not) have issues with this new version. This
can be tested by changing the ballast setting when connected to a 302 and
seeing if it changes on its own. Let us know if you see any
obviously incorrect final glide numbers when connected to your 302.
- Reads the pressure altitude from
Volksloggers and uses it for glides and airspace. Passwords can
be set based on the Volkslogger serial number. Glide Navigator does
not yet support sending flight declarations to the Volkslogger.
It also cannot be used to download flight logs from the Volkslogger.
Flight Analysis can be used to
download flight logs from the Volkslogger.
- Reads the pressure altitude from Zander
products and uses it for glides and airspace. Passwords can be set
based on the Zander serial number. Chip
does not have a Zander so this has not been tested yet. Please let
us know if you can help us test this. Glide Navigator
does not yet support sending flight declarations to the Zander.
It also cannot be used to download flight logs from the Zander.
- Logging interval can now be changed for
the IGC file logged to a flash card.
Version 2.0 Beta 5
- Improved menu navigation - You can now
return to the menu after changing a parameter. Previous versions
always took you back to the main flying screen after every parameter
change. You can also use new "Prev." and "Next" buttons to move
freely between the menus.
- IGC Flight Logging - This in not complete
yet, but Glide Navigator II can now save a simple flight log file to a
flash card. This feature will be improved very soon. We will
be adding the date to the filename along with more header information,
- Touch the North Arrow to switch from
"North Up" to "Track Up". This feature must be enabled to work.
- Beta 5 fixes a number of irritating bugs
in Beta 4 in addition to the following.
- Several things are incomplete, mainly the
logger support pages.
- We are now working on support for various
loggers, German version and any bugs. Further down on the list are
improvements to task editing, area task support, and automatic starts and
- Turn area tasks:
- Shows little plane (North Up) on move
points screen (if it is within the frame).
- Changed area task angles such that the
area is drawn clockwise from the first angle to the second. This allows
areas of 180 degrees or larger to be drawn correctly. It also means you
must enter the angles in the correct order.
- On iPAQs, scrolling and moving turn area
points can be done with the rocker button at the bottom middle. (Turn
area points can only be moved on the Move Points page available on Show
Task.) On Compaq 1500s, you can set the buttons to “Game” and use them
for scrolling and moving points. Select game buttons in Q Utilities (not
- If you get a chance to fly this version,
please try scrolling with the buttons (above). We know it is slower, but I
think it may be just fast enough in the air, and it may work better than
the scroll bars. This is obviously a poor solution for very long lists.
Scrolling happens on the Edit Task and the Go To Waypoint pages.
- Moved Edit Task so you don’t hit it
accidentally when trying to select Show Task. Show Task is selected many
times per flight, Edit Task is usually needed less often. On area tasks,
hitting Edit Task by mistake requires going through several pages. Pilots
not using tasks will hopefully have turna rea tasks shut off, and so will
only have to go through one page if the inadvertently hit Edit Task.
- Changed the bug polar. The number is the
percent L/D at best L/D. Thus 90 will reduce the L/D at best L/D speed by
10%. This is done by increasing the A coefficient to model a parasitic
drag increase. The best L/D speed drops, and the best L/D at this speed is
slightly better than the 90% best L/D achieved at the previous best L/D
speed. The result is a lower optimum speed to fly for the current ballast
and MC settings, and a worse glide ratio.
- Added a Start gate maximum altitude
warning. The time entry is for a timer which will start when you drop back
below the gate altitude. This is not yet implemented.
- START ALT WARNING - The bar that shows up
along the top of the screen when the start altitude is near violation. It
now only comes up before the start and when near the altitude, and it is
easier to shut off the gate altitude warning under Start Gates.
- The PAN was changed so that you have to
drag your finger farther before it is activated to prevent accidental
- MARK POINT – Added a yes/no dialog so you
can cancel out of it.
- SUAs use polygons to approximate circles
and arcs. The polygon was inscribed in the circle, so there was a
potential for being inside (by a small amount) when GN II showed you
outside. SUA circles and arcs are now excribed so you can’t be in when
shown out of SUAs. (Unfortunately I do not know the antonym for inscribe
so I have made one up.) Start gates and task areas are still inscribed.
The arc gate is excribed.
- Fixed the fiinal glide arrival margin
going down in 99 ft increments.
- Added a Day maximum altitude warning
because most areas and contests do not allow gliders above a certain
altitude. (Usually you can’t reach the altitude.)
- Fixed this bug: If both US start gate and
turn area task are on the first area is not deleted on re-editing a task.
There are two copies, or two different areas, of the first prescribed area
in the task.
- Fixed auto zoom problems. Auto zoom now
turns off for 30 seconds if the pilot changes the zoom level manually.
- Fixed automatic zooming too far when using
- Fixed log to card, can shut it on and off.
Changes from version 1.1 to 1.11
There is no pressing need to upgrade to version 1.11 if you are currently
using version 1.1. The only change is related to opening special
European airspace files created by Hans Trautenberg. Version 1.1 could
open some old SUA files created by Hans. This was an oversight.
Version 1.11 does not allow access to Hans' files. If you would like
us to add that functionality back into Glide Navigator, please let us know.
We will have to charge license fees for file access to support Hans' work on
Bugs fixed in version 1.1
The only change from the beta version is that the 30 nautical mile zoom
level now works. This only worked in statute miles in version 1.1
beta. There is no reason to change from the beta version to this version for
pilots who are not using nautical miles as the distance unit - except that
you may get satisfaction from knowing that you are running the most recent
Bugs fixed in version 1.1 Beta (also fixed
in version 1.1)
- At startup it was navigating to a point at
0,0 rather than the home airport. If you tried to navigate to the home
airport, you couldn't
- After moving TAT turnpoints the pan was
left in an incorrect location so when you went back to the main flying
screen the glider was not at the bottom of the screen.
- It also wasn't showing all the rings
around the MSP Class B airport - I think due to the order they were drawn.
New Features Available in Glide Navigator
II Version 1.0 - (Not available in Pocket-NAV 5.0)
- iPAQ 3800 and 3900 Series Pocket PC's
- Reachable Waypoints Highlighted
Waypoints which are designated as landable in the data base (L or A
attribute) and that are reachable at the current MacCready, wind and
altitude margin settings are highlighted on the moving map. Touch any
waypoint to display the altitude needed and the distance, as well as other
- Turnpoint Area Task support has been
Glide Navigator now has the best support for Turnpoint Area Tasks on
the market. When you setup a TAT task and go to the Show Task
screen, you can now move the task points within the turnpoint area circle.
Just click on the button on the bottom of the Show Task screen
labeled "Move Pt". You will then see the area and a display of the
Estimated Total Time calculated using the number shown in the
Estimated Speed box on the Show Task screen. You can move the
task turnpoints by dragging anywhere on the screen with your finger, or
with the rocker joystick on iPAQ's. On a 1550 you could use the 4 buttons
on the front of the 1550 if you enable them as Game Buttons, but I'm not
sure I'd recommend that. These new features are very cool, and invaluable
in US competitions which now use the TAT tasks often. Areas are
keyed on the distance units selected; if kilometers are selected pie wedge
areas can be defined, if miles or nautical miles are selected only
circular areas in miles can be defined (as per US contest rules). Turn
areas are saved and displayed if you re-enter Edit Task
(this was not the case on some
- Mark Point
There is a new Mark button on the GPS Info. screen.
Touching the button adds the current position to the waypoint list, making
it available for navigation. Perfect for marking thermals or wave lift for
later reference. The point is not saved in a file.
- Configurable Displays
A screen has been added under Configure, More Configure,
Preferences, More that allows
showing bearing, track, netto, differential wind and/or numeric wind
direction on the main flying screen.
- Two Way Communications with Cambridge
Aero Instruments' Products
Full two way communications are supported with the Cambridge 302 , GPS-NAV
and L-NAV. Your GPS-NAV version must be 6.0 or higher for two-way
communications. GPS-NAV activation is not necessary.
- More Track Display Options
Tracks can be off, 300, 2000 or 5000 tracks. Tracks are put down as data
is logged, so 300 points at a one second interval is five minutes. Tacks
can be erased and started over at any time. Too many tracks can slow down
the 1500 series Compaqs.
- Ten Tasks
10 tasks (A - J) are now supported.
- New Zoom Level
A zoom level of 30 miles has been added.
- Configuration Data Saved to Flash Card
All configuration data is now saved in a file, with a copy on the
flash card if present. If the "config.dat" file is not found in memory,
the flash card is searched. This prevents having to re-enter user data;
units, display preferences, turnpoint radius etc. if the batteries die.
- There are a few new buttons which are
"grayed out" and can not be selected because the features have not been
I have an e-mail mailing list of Glide Navigator II customers who would like
to receive announcements about the availability of new versions of Glide
Navigator. If you are not already on the list, please send me an
e-mail at the address below.
