SYS'GPS V3 vario reviews

If you’re buying your first flying instrument, the SYS’GPS is a great choice; a small, high-quality vario with the safety bonus of ground speed always on display. If you’re a fly-hiker, you’ve got everything you need in one small box.

The serious XC hound will, of course, want something more, probably with an airspace map and perhaps competition functions. But, since it records your flights, as a backup instrument for XC and comps, or for keeping your flying simple, the SYS’GPS is close to ideal.
