Second Seat Installation
The same mounting options and components are used when installing the ClearNav in the second seat in a 2 -seat glider. Two ClearNav systems installed in one glider will operate completely independently as they each contain a GPS and full functionality. If one ClearNav is connected to a Cambridge 302 for airspeed data, a CANbus extension cable may be used to connect the two Nexus Boards to enable sharing of the airspeed data. Additional data and function sharing may be available in the future.

Conclusions
This is going to be an extremely popular flight computer system.

Screen Comparison With Competitive Products

The photo above includes (from left to right): NK ClearNav, iPAQ 310, iPAQ 210, iPAQ hx4700 (backlight getting dimmer as it is 3 years old).  The 3 units on the right are all running SeeYou Mobile software.  Click on the image to see a much larger version.  Note that this photo was taken indoors.  Screen brightness may be quite different outside in direct sunlight, or with the sun behind the units. The ClearNav is by far the brightest.  The iPAQ 310 uses a different screen technology than the iPAQ 210 and iPAQ hx4700 - which may make it better in sunlight.  To make the screen brightness comparison as fair as possible, all 4 devices are showing the same location on the map - Minden, NV.
