Flymaster F1 Navigator & NAV+ Software (PAST MODEL)
The Flymaster F1 Navigator module is a unique combined vario/gps that, in conjunction with the NAV+, transforms your PDA into a complete flight instrument. The F1 module can be used alone, as an acoustic vario with gps data logger.

The Flymaster F1 Navigator is a unique combined vario/gps that, in conjunction with the NAV+, transforms your PDA into a complete flight instrument. The F1 module can be used alone, as an acoustic vario with gps data logger.
Together, they form possibly the most innovative soaring flight instrument you will find today, featuring all the necessary information either for leisure, XC, or competition flight.
To get the most from the F1, you need the NAV+ software and any PDA with transreflective screen running Windows Pocket PC 2003 Second Edition PDA, or above.

Physical dimensions 121mm x 70mm x 37mm (Lenght x Width x Height).
Flymaster Nav+ Software
NAV+ is the latest generation soaring flight navigation software, developed under the most recent computation paradigms as “Mobile Computation” and “Ubiquitous Computing”.
Together with FlyMaster F1, it forms the most complete soaring flight instrument, featuring all the necessary information either for leisure, XC, or competition flight.
Running FlyMaster NAV+ requires a Windows Pocket PC 2003 Second Edition PDA, or above. Most of the Nav+ features can be obtained using a standard GPS with NMEA format communication capability, however, full performance and features can only be obtained by using NAV+ in combination with Flymaster’s F1 module.
NAV+ stands out from other flight instruments not only in the type of information it provides, but also how that information is shown and the way it communicates with the user.
Flymaster takes advantage of the stronger computation power, larger memory capacity and higher graphic resolution of the PDA’s. Instead of just numeric information, NAV+ uses graphics that change dynamically adapting to each moment during flight.
Examples of the Dynamic Display Information are the automatic change from “Thermal” to “Transition Mode”, and the automatic zoom allowing the pilot to see the thermal when climbing or the turn point boundaries during transition.
Interacting with NAV+ it is very simple, in addition to Windows type menus, the touch screen or a stilet can be used to define a task, obtain information, or configure the device.
The NAV+ navigation system was developed to optimize pilot decisions during flight, both competition and leisure.
Fundamentally it values clarity and ease of reading, concentrating key factors at the moment of decision making during each stage of flight.
