CNv to Altair
« on: May 07, 2019, 08:07:48 AM »
I have an Altair Pro computer (Triadis) and a VEGA variometer currently in my glider. Runs XC Soar
Anyone know if a CNv can be installed instead of the VEGA ?
- And what cind of wiring to be used ?

The serial port data stream from CNv is the same format as Cambridge 302.  As far as I know, CNv works with XCSoar as far as air data.  Waypoint databases and flight downloads would still be made via USB (not through XCSoar). 

Search the forum for details -- this was discussed at some length along with cable requirements, etc.
