Syride SYS'Nav V3 Reviews
The balance of small size, low weight, great simplicity and rich features makes the Syride SYS'Nav V3 a really useful piece of kit. I fully expect to be happy using it for many years to come.
I can conclude that Syride have fulfilled their own brief for the SYS'Nav V3 extremely well. It's a great price given the functionality and convenience offered. Well done Syride!
The ability to strap it on the riser makes it more versatile, especially for pilots who don’t want instrument decks. It’s ideal for hike-and-fly enthusiasts and bivi pioneers. It caters for a big portion of the cross-country pilot market, falling short only on complex airspace display.
It even throws some heavy punches in the competition flying arena, where the optimised route and glide to goal will see you finishing many tasks.
It has, in my opinion, blown the competition out of the water in the mid-range instrument market, while being by far the lightest and most affordable. No mean feat.
The SYS’Nav does everything the SYS’GPS does. Straight out of the box, you can switch it on to find a fully-featured vario and a useful basic GPS. Like the SYS’GPS, you can boost its utility by connecting it to your computer and choosing from a huge range of values to display on its screen.
The SYS’Nav provides a lot more navigational functions that make the device a lightweight option as a sole cross-country instrument. The two big leaps forward from its little brother are, first, the capacity to load waypoints and make them into a route; and secondly, the power to load airspace files for the country that you’re flying in, display them on screen, and get a warning if you get close—or even inside.
As with the SYS’GPS, other parameters that can be displayed include all the usual vario and GPS measurements, plus such things as wind speed and direction, height above ground, and even G measurements. Battery life is excellent at 25 hours, while 90 hours of flight can be stored.
I’ve been using one or other of the Syride devices as my main vario all summer, and I’m very happy with them in that role. The SYS’Nav means that you can fly XC with all the navigational power you need in a box that fits in the palm of your hand—or, more practically, on your riser.
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 website 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! You can also 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 at Flybubble who advised me, resulting in a very happy customer!
