LXNAV Nano GPS Flight Recorder
The Nano is a fantastic little GPS flight recorder with full IGC approval for all badge, record and contest flights. It is extremely small and includes a built-in GPS engine, built-in GPS antenna, built-in battery, and logger. It is also extremely easy to use. Just use the built-in setup software to enter your name, glider data and task declaration, then turn it on and go fly.
The Nano flight recorder is the smallest flight recorder designed according to the highest level IGC specification. It features an integrated 66-channel GPS receiver and built-in antenna. The built-in battery allows up to 28 hours of stand-alone operation. Bluetooth is used for easy data exchange with a PDA. RS-232 (wired) communication with a PDA is also included. Five LEDs display the operational status. A 2Gb SD card is used for flight data storage. Flights are stored directly in IGC format and are downloadable through a USB connection. The battery is charged when the flight recorder is connected to a computer (provided your computer can supply enough current) or with the supplied wall charger.

The Nano Configurator setup software is extremely easy to use. It is used to enter the pilot and glider details and to enter a task declaration. Click on the images below to view full-size screen captures of the setup software.
The first screen capture (above) is of the Windows Explorer view that opens upon connecting the Nano to the PC. Use this screen to copy and paste flight logs from the Nano to your PC. Double-clicking on the "NanoConfig.exe" program launches the simple setup program shown in the other 2 screens below.
Clicking on the "Load Waypoints" button allows you to open any SeeYou ".cup" waypoint file. You can then easily build a task using the waypoints in the file.
Note: It is not necessary or possible to load waypoint files into the Nano. The "Load Waypoints" button is used only to open a waypoint file in the Nano Configurator software to make it easy to create a task to send to the Nano as the official task declaration.

- LXNAV recommends that you do not remove the microSD card from the Nano. The reason is that if you accidentally mess-up any of the setup files on the Nano's microSD card, it may not function properly during your next flight. It would be a bummer if the unit did not log an important flight for you because a required setup file was missing or corrupted. So... please leave the microSD card inside the Nano at all times.
However... If you are a technical person, and want to allow multiple users to have their own Nano microSD cards - that should work fine. Just copy the original microSD card onto "backup" microSD cards. The Nano will use the settings that are saved on the microSD card that is in the Nano when it is powered-up.
