XC Tracer Mini III GPS is the successor of XC Tracer III, a proven and reliable flight instrument for paraglider pilots. Many pilots use XC Tracer III for competitions and for long XC flights. The time-lag free indication of the climb/sink rate using beeping tones makes it much easier to find and core thermals then when using a conventional variometer.
You can use XC Tracer Mini III GPS also as an IGC and KML logger, both files are logged in parallel, and the IGC files are accepted by FAI for paragliding competitions. There is a lithium polymer battery built in, when fully charged the battery has enough energy to power XC Tracer Mini II GPS for more than 20h hours without sunshine. The battery will get charged with power from the high efficiency solar cells during the flight, but you can charge the battery also over the Micro USB cable that is shipped with XC Tracer Mini III GPS. There is also a Bluetooth Low Energy BLE 4.0 module built in. You can configure the BLE strings that you want to send to your phone, tablet or e-reader using a simple configuration file. And of course does the variometer indicate the climb / sink rate with beeping tones. And the good thing is that you can modify the tone settings as you wish.
The ratio of energy delivered from the solar panel and the power consumption of the variometer is even better compared XC Tracer II. It is very likely that you can fly all season without ever having to recharge the battery of your XC Tracer Mini III GPS.
What are the advantages of an XC Tracer variometer?
Favoured by top competition pilots, the XC Tracer’s zero-lag accuracy means you find the core much quicker. The Mini III GPS features the most highly sensitive internal accelerometer yet seen in the market. Precise mapping information is transmitted to XCTrack meaning if you lose the core, you’ll find it faster.
Best in Class GPS
GPS receives GPS and Glosnass and Galileo, giving enhanced positioning over conventional GPS instruments.
The Mini 2 GPS maintains its charge for 20 hours in zero light conditions.
Perfect for competitions through to vol-bivouac, the Mini 2 GPS weighs just 34 grams. And XC Tracer II FLARM is also a leight weight vario with only 70g.
IGC and KML Logging
Suitable for all competition and XC League flying, XC Tracer outputs both IGC and KML files.
Optional thermal sniffing feature for enhanced search.
Tones, sensitivity, thermal sniffing and other features are all easily customizable – or just download your favourite pilot’s settings.
