I see all these options available in the normal Data Fields when adding a new panel (other than the time in the top/bottom), so it's nicer to just customize it with preloaded sensors. What'd I'd love to see though is an AGL elevation option if that's possible. As far as I can tell there's no such option in the default menus.

Would it be possible to create an option to change the units of measurement? I would like to see: elevation: meters speed: kilometers/hour vspd: meters/second

Hi there, and thanks for the feedback. The option to change the units is already available; to do so, use Garmin Connect Mobile (GCM) on your phone, select your device, then go to "Activities & App Management" where you can change the configure using the "SETTINGS" button.

It would be great to be able to use the lap button to time each leg. When navigating it sometimes more useful to see the leg time instead of the entire flight time otherwise great app ;)

Excellent app for hike and fly (paraglider). I only need to carry my garmin watch + solar powered vario to be able to go on a lightweight XC trip. I would be even better if able to show glide ratio. Thank you developer.

If I use the bicycle app, the Flight Instruments app also starts, as far as I can judge, this all happens only with the use of the bicycle app. When i start the Flight Instruments app, this is the only app that launches. I've already removed and installed the Flight Instruments app but did not help. can you help me out? I am using a Fenix ​​Sapphire Fenix ​​3HR. And have the latest updates on it.

Hi there. This is a data field and must be added to an existing activity. Please see the detailed instructions on how to do this within the description on the "App Info" tab above (you need to click on the 'More' link).

Hi there and thanks for the feedback. The data field is not really designed to be used in place of a variometer, especially since I can't control where the elevation information comes from -- it could come from the GPS or the barometric altimeter and there's no way to know which and that makes the VSI information not dependable enough. Regardless, unfortunately the Connect IQ API does not grant me enough control to produce tones that would simulate what a variometer sounds like so
