Other / Re: CNII vs. Oudie
« Last post by Joe G on September 13, 2019, 05:26:07 AM »
Both are good.  I prefer the Clear Nav. The CN controls on the stick are easy to use and soon become second nature. No reaching for a touch screen. Tunnel mount is a nice installation if your panel has the room. Once you get the performance dialed in, the ameba pattern is an easy, quick glance and accurate  decision aid. I've never flown with the Oudie but have with an IPAQ. I now have two gliders and both have clear nav installed.

If you do install a CN, dont let direct sunlight hit on the screen for long it will burn the screen. One reason the tunnel mount is my preference.   I've seen two gliders with tilt up canopies that had burned screens after the  the canopies were open for a spell with the sun shine directly on the screen. I cover mine with a towel on the ground.
Oudie screen may do the same, I dont know.

Other / CNII vs. Oudie
« Last post by dtarmichael on September 10, 2019, 07:36:56 AM »
Hello, I've been a fan of ClearNav since I first saw it and was determined to put one in a glider of my own one day.  I recently had an opportunity to start a partnership and things are going mostly smooth.  I have one partner who believes that an Oudie is the height of soaring hardware because he read somewhere that a certain well known contest pilot only uses them when he travels the world and flys other people's gliders.  I prefer an integrated design that is permanently mounted in the aircraft that doesn't require a touch screen and has a higher degree of refinement and ease of use.  While my perception is the CNII is the cat's meow it's difficult to articulate why since I have no experience with it.  Can you guys help me "sell" this to my partner?  Are there any features other than the amoeba CNII has the Oudie lacks?  Price isn't a concern for me as I am willing to pay the difference, but I imagine the resale is better with the CNII too. 
If any of you have any experience installing a CNII in an ASW24, I'd like to hear about it.

Very weirdly, I saw exactly the same thing happen on Sunday.  Now I thought I understood this one, because this glider has just changed hands and the prev. owner deleted  his pilot "profile" which (I thought) was the cause of all the polar and setup information being deleted.

My CN2 was working normally.

Customer Support / ClearNav Display "Personalities" and Turnpoints Wiped Out?
« Last post by Pappa3 on September 02, 2019, 08:35:28 AM »
So,  i got to the airport on Saturday, and when  I fired up the ClearNav (I) a couple of things were wrong.  First,  all of the waypoint and SUA files that were active last weekend when I flew were gone.  There were no waypoints or SUAs "loaded",  though they were all still "available".   Interestingly,   the tasks from last weekend were still in the task memory.  Worse,  my "Personality" profile along with all of the screen and glide performance settings were gone.     In summary, there was some sort of partial erasure of my persistent data.   

Also,  today's flight log was rejected by the OLC by the "invalid time records" problem.    In this case, I did not power-cycle the unit at any point in the flight,  though I did reload the waypoints   

Has this ever been reported before (search of the archive didn't show anything that I could find)?   More importantly,  does this mean I'm heading for a more comprehensive failure?

A link to an OLC flight would save time...

Customer Support / Flight down load not complete
« Last post by tfdixon on August 31, 2019, 04:59:27 PM »
My last two flights when I load onto OLC from my thumb drive after I download from my CNII the last part of the flight is not there.  It seems to stop when I initiate the final decent over the airport.  So there is no termination of the flight.  ALSO. lots of the flights on the CNII log do not have start or finish times just zeros.

I have a XC-CNV with a digital display bought in 3 steps, vario, digital display, XC package.  When I was selling the glider that this system was in I removed the digital display and moved it to the new glider that had a XC-CNV but no digital display.  ( I want the Thermal assist, best I've seen.)   I have tried to use the CNV IGC file on OLC and the flight was gray.  I do get a "Bad Seal" message when I power up the vario.  I didn't get that when the display was in the original glider.  could this be from a S/N mis-match? What do I need to do to fix this?  Would reloading the XC upgrade file fix it?  Mostly I use my Flarm file to post to OLC but like a back up as I had a download failure from Flarm on a 500k flight.   I would like to get the vario fully working.
Thanks,
Steve

Sealing applies only to the ADC, and isn't affected by which displays are connected, what firmware is loaded or whether the license key is reloaded.  And Lars is correct, (re-)sealing must be done by CNi.

Sorry for your trouble, but you need to get the ADC resealed. Please contact support.
