I'm at beta stage on a four port serial MUX with filtering and routing.
Drop me a private message if interested.

I have put one on three different installations.  Handy for occasional in-flight reboots, software upgrades, etc.
CNv Discussion / Power switch on vario?
« Last post by dtarmichael on January 31, 2020, 02:23:35 PM »
I'm beginning an installation and need to know if the ClearNav vario requires a power switch. I see the CNII requires one in the information I'm seeing online, but can't find anything about the vario.

I agree with this request.  Being able to look at the diameter you are thermaling is very helpful.

There is a K6 Mux for sale on Glider Source.  I had a CNV Flarm and Oudie in my last glider but I had the CNV as a stand alone and connected the Flarm and Oudie.
CNv Integration with other Devices / CNv and Oudie and Flarm

I would like to combine a CNv vario with an Oudie and a Flarm.
The combination CNv and Ouide does not seem to be a problem.

Is there a possibility to also connect the Flarm to the ADC?
So that I see the traffic on my Oudie.

Is there also the possibility that I send tasks from the Oudie to the Flarm?

I read that this would go with a Ka 6 Mux but these are no longer made.

Thanks for your help.
My glider is in Australia, so I cannot give you an answer for Europe.
The Tocumwal groundstation sees me to a distance of about 30km.
I can see my friend - as well having dipole antennas on top of the instrument cover - up to 20km, but in general other gliders average to about 5km. I willlink some flights together and do another range check at the FLARM website.
It's more valuable to have the relative altitude in digital form than the climb rate. 

btw... the climb rates reported by CN2 aren't reliable.  The FV rates are much better.  Maybe FV is filtering the data stream in some fashion to smooth out the data?  I am guessing that what CN2 does is update the climb rates for any given flarm target "whenever it's convenient" and it probably just copies whatever the current reported climb rate is from the flarm data stream.   It's a really noisy stream (no TE compensation, no filtering).  On FV, you see thermal entry transients and such, but it isn't as noisy as I'd expect, so I bet they filter.  Good for them.

So Chris, I have a question for you: what sort of range is typical for flarm (or power flarm) in Europe?

In US we have powerflarm only and range depends enormously on quality of installation at both ends.  I have a very good install and I can receive most well installed power flarm equipped gliders up to about 10 km.   
I reactivated my FLARM View yesterday
Another way would be to remove the arrows and show high targets blue, low ones green and close ones red.
My recommendation is a second flarm display.  I use flarmview 57 for last several seasons.  It is a good companion to CN2 although small font sizes make challenging to read.
