Garrecht

Overview
The Garrecht Volkslogger is known for its reliability.  It also works great with the ILEC SN-10 because the SN-10 can send a task declaration to the Volkslogger.

VL Garrecht Volkslogger

This product is no longer available.

GPS flight recorder, IGC Approved, Works great with an SN10 because the SN10 can send task declarations directly to the Volkslogger.  Note: This unit does not come with a 12V power supply.  I recommend the Pwr-12V-500mA unit below.  It is required if you want to transfer waypoint files and flight logs to a PC while at home (unless you use a 12V battery).

Free OEM Version of StrePla
The Volkslogger package includes a special version of StrePla flight analysis software.  It has limited functionality but can be used to upload waypoint files to the VL and download flight logs.  It can also (I think) display the flight trace on a 2D map but cannot display it in 3D mode.  It includes a coupon that can be used to upgrade to the full version of StrePla for a reduced price (the standard StrePla upgrade price).  More information on StrePla is available here.

Cables
I offer cables for connecting the Volkslogger to a variety of Pocket PCs and the ILEC SN-10.  For connecting the VL to an SN-10 and the SN-10 instrument panel connector you will want a SN10b-Pnl-Vb-1.  For connecting the VL to an SN-10 and a Pocket PC you will want a SN10b-Pnl-PS5a-VLb-1.  For connecting to any Pocket PC please consult the Cable and Cradle Selection Guide.

VLa-PC-Pwr Volkslogger PC Cable - For Volkslogger with round 5-pin Binder power/data connector
This cable is used to connect the VL to 12V power and to a PC for transferring waypoints to the VL or downloading flight logs from the VL to a PC.  Two cables exit the DB-9f connector.  Both the cable to the Binder connector and the power leads are 2 m long.  The wiring harness has a total of 3 connections:
  • Binder, 5-pin round connector, male, right angle, with 2 m (6.56 ft) cable - Plugs into the Volkslogger for the power and data connections
  • DB-9f, 9-pin female connector - for plugging into a PC
  • Power leads, 2 m long - bare leads for connecting to a 12V power source such as the Pwr-12V-500mA wall plug or a 12V battery.  The 12V power converter is not included.

This cable's DB-9f 9-pin connector is designed for connection to a PC's RS-232 serial port.  However, most new PCs don't have RS-232 serial ports.  However, the FTDI Chip USB Serial Adapter can be used to add a serial port to any PC that has a USB port.  It works great with the Volkslogger.
