CNv Discussion / Re: Vario Speaker not Working
« Last post by S9 on March 19, 2019, 06:01:45 AM »
Thanks Evan. I just started using the CN and CNv in this glider I purchased. The seals are bad and not updated on the CNv. I had the CN calibrated and it is running well although I need to update all the software from 3.2xxx to the latest.  I guess I need to send in the ADC and get it refreshed.  I'll first try a spare speaker I have this weekend.

CN2, CNv both displays, and FLARM

CNv Discussion / Re: Vario Speaker not Working

There was a problem early in production with one lot of audio amplifier chips that were out of spec.  These chips work more or less properly under most circumstances but have an unacceptably high failure rate ("acceptable" is basically zero). 

The vast majority of these chips have been changed out.  If your CNv ADC goes back to CN for any reason (most of the affected ADCs were shipped prior to IGC approval, so had to visit the factory for updates/calibration/sealing at some point) it was checked for the offending chip.  If found, it's been swapped for a good one. 

If you have an audio output failure, or indeed any other hardware problem, please call Williams Soaring.

What was the solution to fix this speaker/audio problem?

With the help of Rex, I resolved the questions.  When my glider was wired, ADC pins #&4 were used for the Cruise/Climb manual switch.  This is non-standard.  Rex helped me identify this.  I wired the ADC per ClearNav instructions and it works as intended.  I'm still working on switch issues, but the wiring dilemma is resolved.

While (in good humor) trading barbs with a certain contest committee member today regarding the merits of low tow vs high tow, said CC member let slip that the 2019 rules will NOT use 0.5 mile radii, but WILL use 1.0 SM radii as before.

I finally got email back from Rex.  He's aware of the problem (and presumably is getting it worked on).

I'm not having any luck with this. I have the most current CNII firmware.
I can set the FINISH to 1mile or 0.5mile.
I can only set the TURNPOINT to 1 mile, 0.5km or 2km.   IT DOES NOT allow 0.5mile.
 
I have heard there may be a software fix coming.

thanks

CNv Discussion / CNv User For Phone Call?
« Last post by jnmeade on February 20, 2019, 05:05:51 PM »
I'd very much like to talk on the phone with an experienced CNv user to go over my settings.  There are a lot of little things I'd like to discuss or verify.  I've gone over the manuals many times and posted on this forum to my benefit.  Thanks.  But there are some things it seems it would be easier to just sit in my glider and run through the configuration and make sure I'm not only set up right but understand what I'm doing.  Needless to say, I'm an inexperienced glider pilot and while I've used power plane glass panels have no experience with glider nav displays and functions.  Thanks to any volunteers.  Post a response and I can give you my phone number or email address for a start.
