AK X-Alps

Description

This is a data field showing several information helpful in the air, to be able to use the device as backup (me personally I already was forced to use it):</p><p>- Altitude (text and chart)</p><p>- Current Speed</p><p>- Moving direction</p><p>- Descend or climbing rate (vario, if you are paraglider)</p><p>- Experimental: Wind information (if you are paraglider)</p><p></p><p>WARNING: The app is intended only as an in-flight aid and should not be used as a primary information source. If the app contains a barometric altimeter, it will not function in a pressurized aircraft and should not be used in a pressurized aircraft.</p>

What’s New

V0.3.5</p><p>- SDK 3.1.5</p><p>- Added support for Fenix 6 series (some Fenix 6 devices have memory limitations, so wind and track are deactivated)</p><p>- Added air pressure (instead of vario) incl. trend arrow (switch vario / air pressure can be found in Garmin Connect). Keep in mind, values above 50.0 are 9xx.x hPa, values below 50.0 are 10xx.xx hPa</p><p></p><p>V0.3.3</p><p>- SDK 3.1.4</p><p>- Corrected bug in calculation of glide ratio</p>

Love it! Simple and useful! I will love to have some barometric information (instead of the vario I don’t use), especially outside for the weather, the pressure and the direction of the pressure grow or low ... to have an idea of the future weather, using the same vario screen for example.

App works great, but would be nice to add the option of barometric hight (io GPS).

Thanks for reply. Barometric hight is not so easy to implement, because it requires a manual calibration, which is not supported by Garmin. Will think about for next versions.

Leider muss ich das Datenfeld bei jedem Start der Aktivität neu auswählen.
