Syride SYS'Nav V3 Reviews
It's unobtrusive, sitting out of the way on my riser so it doesn't get in the way on launch. The vario tones are easy to understand (I use 1/3 of the volume), so I mostly fly off them. I have used it on the slope and in mountain thermal flying, it gives great reference in either condition.
As I progress, I shall be able to use the navigation functions; what really sets this unit apart is that I can choose to display the relevant information for my level of ability, without risking getting swamped with data.
At the end of the day, I can easily extract the flight tracklogs and pop them in to Google earth for 3D analysis of my performance. I can see how thermals behave so easily, and this visualisation has helped my progression no end.
The accompanying Web site is great, you can easily upload your tracks, and keep a track of your hours flown, on each wing if you have more than one, and compare your flights with other users from each flying site. It's like strava for paragliding!
It charges from USB, it's typically fully charged after being plugged in to my laptop for 30 mins after a few hours' usage, but I also have a spare lead (like you'd use for a portable hard drive) in my car for a top-up on the drive out.
I have played with route planning with this device, and it seems easy enough. I just have to get good enough to fly a route now!
Massive thanks to Nancy and Carlo, who took the time to fully explain the Syride system to me on the phone, resulting in a very happy customer!
