Please Buy from Me
It is possible to order the software registration keys directly from SeeYou.  I ask that you please order it from me.  I strive to help soaring pilots find and use the right products for their needs.  I have created product comparisons like the Flight Software Comparison to help customers with those decisions.  I also offer support to customers who buy through me.  The best way to thank me for the services I offer is to help support my business by buying from me.
Note: The prices on my web site should be the same or slightly lower than the prices on the SeeYou web site.  If you look at the price in Euro on their site and use an online currency converter it will seem like their price is lower.  However, if you start to place an order through the SeeYou web site you will see that the conversion rate to US$ is such that my price is the same or lower.  If it is not close, please let me know. I will be competitive.


Downloads
The SeeYou and SeeYou Mobile software can be downloaded and tested using the link below.  To enable the software you will need to buy a registration key.

Manuals
There are detailed manuals available for SeeYou and SeeYou Mobile and Oudie on the Naviter web site at www.naviter.si

Tips Documents
I have created some "Tips" documents to help you get up to speed quickly with the SeeYou, SeeYou Mobile and the Oudie.

Waypoint and Airspace Files
These files are great for use in a Naviter Oudie or LXNAV Nano3, Nano4, LXNAV S8, S80, S10, S100, LX80x0 or LX90x0
. The waypoint file contains all public and private airports from an FAA database from here. The airspace data is provided by Naviter. Right-click on the links and select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" and save them into any directory on the desired soaring device.


SeeYou for PC Screen Captures
 
3D Flight Review with 3D Glider Model flying
over satellite images draped over 3D topographical data.
2D view with Winter instruments and
photos taken during the flight displayed during flight playback.

 

SeeYou Mobile Screen Captures
The thermal assistant helps you move your circle to optimize your climb rate.
Larger circles indicate higher climb rates.  The colors indicate whether the lift is stronger than the MacCready setting.  The Arrow points to the best side of the circle.
Moving map with tasks, waypoints, and user customizable data windows. Creating or modifying the task is simple with SeeYou Mobile. You can do it either at briefing before takeoff or in cockpit. Use the Menu > Task dialog.
With the airspace getting smaller and smaller for glider pilots, keeping out of forbidden areas is imperative. SeeYou Mobile offers you touch-screen, visual and audio control about the airspace in your vicinity. In-flight statistics like the thermal histogram shown above help you make good in-flight decisions. FLARM traffic can be displayed on the moving map screen.  Their altitude and climb/sink rate is also displayed.
If the traffic's FLARM ID has been registered (it's free) at www.flarmnet.org, and the latest FLARMNET file has been saved on the PDA, then their contest ID or name will be displayed next to their glider on the moving map.

Naviter-Oudie2Lite

Naviter Oudie2 Lite
The Oudie 2 Lite has the same hardware and bright display as an Oudie 2 and has SeeYou Mobile software pre-installed, but does not include a license for SeeYou Mobile. Oudie 2 Lite owners can use their existing PDA or PNA SeeYou Mobile license, or install free soaring flight software such as XCSoar, or they can purchase a license for SeeYou Mobile in the future - with free upgrades for the life of the Oudie 2 unit.

The Oudie 2 and Oudie 2 Lite units are a delivered with an extensive set of accessories (see below) - including a power/data cable and adapters for connection to most any soaring instrument, mounting cradle, suction cup mount, car charger, wall charger, and PC USB cable. The extremely bright display and included accessories make the Oudie 2 and Oudie 2 Lite exceptional values.

The Oudie 2 (below) is still available with the Oudie Lifetime License for SeeYou Mobile for sailplanes with free software upgrades for the life of the unit.

Improvements in the latest Oudie 2 versions shipped after September of 2012
All new Oudie 2 and Oudie 2 Lite units shipped after September 2012 have the following advantages over earlier Oudie and Oudie 2 units.
Since the Oudie 2 Lite units were introduced in December or 2012, all Oudie 2 Lite units have these new features.

  • Slightly faster processor (faster than similar competitive products)
  • Faster screen updates - it is especially noticeable when moving from screen to screen
  • Lower power consumption (about 30% less than competitive products)

Naviter-Oudie2 Naviter Oudie2
Note: See also the Naviter-Oudie2-Bundle below.  It includes the Oudie with brighter screen and SeeYou for the PC.  You save $35 when you order them together.
The original Oudie was a revelation when it was first released.  It offered a very nicely packaged combination of PNA, GPS and soaring flight software - complete with cables, chargers, mounting cradle, etc.  When released it was slightly brighter than any existing PDA or PNA.  Even so, like all color PDAs and PNAs at the time, it was only "OK" in sunlight.  Turning off the display of terrain data made it acceptable, but not great in bright sunlight.  In every other respect it was (in my opinion) the perfect "Personal Gliding Assistant".  The Oudie proved to be a huge success.  I sold over 400 of them over 2 years.  They would not have been so popular if pilots didn't agree that they were acceptable in sunlight.  Yet we all wished for a much brighter screen.  The only bright alternatives were much more expensive large displays that needed to be mounted in the instrument panel (requiring the re-layout of the instrument panel).

The New Brighter Oudie
The great news is that Naviter has now introduced a new, brighter version of the Oudie.  How much brighter is it?  You can see for yourself in the photos above.  Click on them to view larger versions.  They were taken in bright sunlight.  The original Oudie is on the left and the new Oudie is on the right in each photo.  The display of terrain data is turned off in the left image.  The brightness of the new Oudie is in the 900 to 950 nits range.  That is very bright.  The original version Oudie had a brightness in the 350 to 400 nits range.  The Oudie is now the perfect soaring tool. 

The Oudie is a "Personal Gliding Assistant" that is nearly perfect for use in gliders.  Many current model PDAs and PNAs suffer from some "gotcha" issue such as the lack of a serial port, or low resolution, screen too small or too large, etc.  The Oudie is the perfect size for use in a glider and offers a built-in GPS and built-in RS-232 serial port - so it can talk to soaring flight computers and flight recorders.  The 5" diagonal screen is a little larger than a PDA, but the overall footprint is much smaller than the existing "high end" soaring navigation displays.  The screen resolution is 480 x 272 pixels.  That is more than an iPAQ h3900, the same as the Bendix King AV8OR and less than iPAQ 310, iPAQ hx4700 or ClearNav.  I have flown many hours with an Oudie I have been very satisfied with its screen resolution.  The price is very reasonable considering it includes a built-in GPS, suction cup mount, power/data cable with built-in 12V to 5V power converter and a license for SeeYou Mobile that is tied to the Oudie.  The Oudie (with its built-in GPS) has been popular both for pilots looking for a portable system in club and rental gliders, and pilots looking for a semi-portable mounted system wired into a glider's electrical system and connected to a soaring GPS or flight computer.  One major advantage that the Oudie has over all other PDAs/PNAs is that it has non-volatile memory.  It does not lose any data when the battery dies.  You just re-charge the battery and go fly. Another cool feature is that when using an external GPS, the Oudie will automatically switch from external GPS input to using its internal GPS in the event that the external GPS stops sending data. It also automatically switches back to the external GPS when it starts receiving data from it again.

Improvements in the latest Oudie 2 versions shipped after September of 2012
All new Oudie 2 and Oudie 2 Lite units shipped after September 2012 have the following advantages over earlier Oudie and Oudie 2 units.
Since the Oudie 2 Lite units were introduced in December or 2012, all Oudie 2 Lite units have these new features.

What's in a Name?
I am often asked how to pronounce "Oudie".  I don't have an exact answer.  At first I suspected OwDee (as in the way "ou" is pronounced in the words "out" and "loud").  But now I suspect it is OhDee (as in O.D.).  My theory is that Oudie it is a play on words just like the name of their PC software - SeeYou.  SeeYou could be a play on the abbreviation C.U. (or Cu) (get it... CU = SeeYou) often used as a shorthand way to say Cumulus.  Likewise Oudie just may be a play on the abbreviation O.D. (over development - what happens when there is too much moisture in the air and strong lift such that the clouds grow too big and cover too much of the sky).  What do you think?  Am I right, or is it just late and am I "reaching" a bit...?  Regardless of how you pronounce it, it is a great product and a huge hit with soaring pilots around the world!

It is a "Personal Gliding Assistant" which runs SeeYou Mobile natively. What makes it different than any other device on the market is the ability to perform all of the most important tasks for glider pilots right out of the box.

Features:

  • Screen brightness: 900 to 950 nits (extremely bright - sunlight readable)
  • Large 5" screen
  • Landscape and Portrait screen orientations
  • Integrated GPS for stand-alone operation
  • Non-volatile memory - all data is retained if the battery gets low.  (Most PDAs lose all their memory and must be re-setup when their battery gets low.)
  • Automatic GPS input switching - When receiving data from an external device, if the Oudie stops receiving data from that device it automatically switches over to using its internal GPS.  It also automatically switches back to the external data source when it starts working again.
  • GPS Data Output - The Oudie can be configured to send GPS data out to another device.  For example, the Oudie can send GPS data and "distance to target" data to a Cambridge L-NAV or S-NAV.  For details see the required cable here: Cable-Oudie-LNav-0p3. It can also send GPS data to an LXNAV S7 variometer.
  • Oudie Cable Kit- It connects to the unit's mini-USB connector and includes a built-in 12V to 5V power converter and an RS-232 voltage level converter.  This supplied Oudie cable can be connected directly to a FLARM or PowerFLARM unit.  RJ45 (female) to DB-9f and DB-9m adapters are included which can be configured for connection to most soaring GPS and flight computer types.
  • Bluetooth serial communication
  • SeeYou Mobile soaring flight software is pre-installed
  • Vector maps for the world are pre-installed
  • Airport and Airspace files for much of the world are pre-installed.  Below is a list of the included files.  To select the airport and airspace files for your region, in SeeYou Mobile, go to Menu > Settings > Files.
    It is also easy to generate airport and airspace files for your area using the Mobile Wizard in SeeYou on the PC.  The Mobile Wizard is shown in my SeeYou Training video number 46 here.

    Pre-installed Airport and Airspace files:
    • Africa
    • Alps
    • Australia
    • BeNeLux
    • The Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Poland
    • France
    • Germany
    • Hungary
    • New Zealand
    • Scandinavia
    • Spain
    • UK
    • USA (divided into files for "USA West", "USA Central" and "USA East"

    I can provide airport and airspace files for other countries or regions upon request.  I charge $20 for that service.

Included:
The Oudie comes with a complete set of accessories.

  • Oudie unit
  • SeeYou Mobile Software and maps and airspace and waypoints for most of the world pre-installed
  • SeeYou Mobile Lifetime software license
    The SeeYou Mobile software license includes free upgrades to the SeeYou mobile software for the life of the Oudie unit. The license key is tied to the serial number of the Oudie and can be sold with the Oudie.
  • User Manual for Naviter Oudie
    Actually more of a short "Getting Started" manual. A full Oudie 2 manual is available on the Naviter web site at www.naviter.com - then go to the Products menu and select Oudie 2.
  • Program Installation CD
    Contains installation programs for SeeYou for PC, SeeYou Mobile and ConnectMe.  Note: A license for SeeYou for PC is not included with the Oudie.  If you do not already own a license for SeeYou for PC, I highly recommend buying the Naviter-Oudie2-Bundle.  You save $35 when you order them together in the bundle.
  • Cable, USB to mini-USB
    For connecting the Oudie to a PC or Socket Mobile Power Pack, This is a standard USB to mini-USB cable.  If you lose it you can buy another at Radio Shack or Best Buy or Target, etc.
  • Wall Charger
    With 4 exchangeable plugs (for use in different countries) - supplies 5V power to the Oudie.
  • Car Charger
    male cigarette lighter plug to mini-USB connector, includes a 12V to 5V voltage reducer and provides 5V power to the Oudie.
  • Oudie Cradle
    Simple plastic cradle for use with supplied suction cup mount.  The cradle works great with a RAM arm or gooseneck arms using the optional Richter-Cradle-Adapter.  Extra cradles are available for $5.  I have them in stock.
  • Suction Cup Mount
    This is designed for use on a glass window in a car.  Since it has a mechanism for pulling a strong suction it may or may not be ideal for use on an expensive and flexible glider canopy.  I don't recommend using similar devices in gliders because they "dimple" the canopy when in use and may cause crazing over time.  I recommend using the Oudie's cradle with the Richter-Cradle-Adapter and a RAM arm or GNeck2 gooseneck or RAM suction cup mount.
  • Oudie Cable Kit (see details here)
    • Oudie Power/data cable
      Includes: 12 V power leads, mini-USB connector for Oudie, and RJ45 connector.  The RJ45 connector can be connected directly to a FLARM or PowerFLARM unit or Volkslogger.  This cable will provide the 12V power to the FLARM, PowerFLARM or Volkslogger.  The pins connections are to the "IGC Standard".
    • Adapter, RJ45 to DB-9m
      This is a configurable adapter that can be used to connect the Oudie Power/data cable to a variety of soaring instruments.  Simply push the pins into the receptacles on the DB-9m connector and snap the connector into the housing. 
    • Adapter, RJ45 to DB-9f
      This is a configurable adapter that can be used to connect the Oudie Power/data cable to a variety of soaring instruments.  Simply push the pins into the receptacles on the DB-9f connector and snap the connector into the housing.
    • 20 cm cable extension with RJ12 connectors and RJ45 Coupler
      For connecting to LX Colibri, Colibri II Power/data cable, LX20/2000, MiniBox, RedBox

Recommended Accessories

Memory Expansion: microSD card, It accepts either standard or high-density (greater than 2 GB) cards . It also has 4 GB or internal memory (of which 2GB will be used by pre-installed world wide vector maps).  The remaining memory can be used to store waypoint and airspace files.  The Oudie looks like a USB Flash Drive when connected to a PC using a standard USB cable.  Therefore, the Mobile Wizard (in SeeYou on the PC) can be used to send waypoint and airspace files directly to the Oudie memory.

With Oudie there will be no more empty batteries, lost data, re-installations and re-registrations. All the data is kept in flash memory so even if the battery goes dead all you have to do is refill the battery and everything is there. No setup, no installation, nothing.  Since it comes with SeeYou Mobile and worldwide Vector Maps installed, initial setup is greatly reduced.  You still need to transfer waypoint and airspace files to the device through the microSD card, or to the internal memory using a USB cable, but that is about it.

Question: Is a microSD memory card required?
Answer: The Oudie has a microSD slot, but does not include a microSD card.  A customer supplied microSD card may be used to transfer flight logs from the Oudie to your PC and to transfer waypoint and airspace files from the PC to the Oudie.  However, and SD card is not necessarily required because you can also transfer data by connecting the Oudie to a PC using a standard USB cable.  There is plenty of memory (about 2 GB) in the Oudie which can be used for storing waypoint and airspace files and flight logs.  When you connect the Oudie to the PC the Oudie looks like a USB Flash Drive.  You can then use Windows File Explorer to transfer the files between the PC and Oudie.  However, some pilots (especially pilots in a syndicate in which many pilots use the glider and Oudie) may want to use a microSD card to transfer flight logs home and leave the Oudie at the gliderport. 

Question: Can I run WinPilot or pocket*StrePla or Glide Navigator II on the Oudie?
Answer: No.  Those software products have not been upgraded to run on devices like this one.

External Power
I imagine that the internal battery will power the unit for only an hour or 2.  Therefore it will probably be necessary to power the unit either with an external portable battery such as the Battery-5V-8000mAh-w-charger or Battery-5V-11200mAh-w-charger, or to power it with 12V using its supplied Oudie power/data cable.  The Oudie works great with the Battery-5V-8000mAh-w-charger or Battery-5V-11200mAh-w-charger and a standard USB to mini-USB cable (included with the Oudie) can be used to connect them together. The Battery-5V-8000mAh-w-charger powers the Oudie 2 for 14 hours and the Battery-5V-11200mAh-w-charger powers the Oudie 2 for 18 hours.

Power/Data Cables
The Oudie is supplied with an Oudie Cable Kit with a built-in 12V to 5V power converter and an RS-232 voltage level converter.  It will work great for connection to 12V power but the built-in 12V to 5V connector is not required for connection to a Cambridge 302 or LX1600 or LX7007 or Goddard PS-5a power converter - since those products can supply the required 5V power for the Oudie.  Therefore, the cables below are recommended for use with a Cambridge 302, IMI Erixx, LX1600, LX7007 or Goddard PS-5a power converter. 
Oudie-PS5a-1 (several other lengths are also available)
Oudie-LX1600-1
Oudie-Erixx-1

Oudie-EWmicroRec-0.3 - Important Note: If you connect the Oudie power/data cable's RJ45 connector directly to an EW microRecorder, it will probably kill the EW microRecorder.  It is important that you use this adapter cable.

Mounting Options
The unit includes a suction cup mount designed for use on a glass window in a car.  Since it has a mechanism for pulling a strong suction it may or may not be ideal for use on an expensive and flexible glider canopy.  I don't recommend using similar devices in gliders because they "dimple" the canopy when in use and may cause crazing over time.  I recommend using the Oudie's cradle with the Richter Cradle Adapter and a RAM arm or GNeck2 gooseneck or RAM suction cup mount.  Details are shown below.

Tip
Rotate the screen
I recommend rotating the Oudie screen 180 degrees so the power/data cable connects to the top of the Oudie.  That gets it out of the way so it can't be bumped by your leg in flight.  To rotate the screen, in SeeYou Mobile on the Oudie, go to Menu > Settings > User Interface (UI) and select screen orientation 90 at the top of the screen.  the change takes effect when you exit (saving your changes) and re-start SeeYou Mobile.

Naviter-Oudie-IGC

Naviter Oudie IGC
Note: See also the Naviter-Oudie-IGC-Bundle below.  It includes the Oudie IGC, SeeYou Mobile for use in flight and SeeYou for the PC for viewing and analyzing your flight at home.  You
save $35 when you order them together.

Overview
The Oudie IGC is a Personal Gliding Assistant with built-in aviation grade GPS, IGC approved flight recorder, 12 hour battery, audio variometer (not Total Energy compensated) and SeeYou Mobile and ConnectMe software pre-installed.  The Oudie comes ready-to-fly with airports, airspace and maps for most of the world pre-installed. A great portable system with the Oudie IGC, and glider canopy suction cup mount is shown above
The Oudie helps you navigate around a soaring task or directly to any waypoint. Landing sites that are within gliding range are highlighted in green on the moving map. The Oudie calculates wind speed and direction while circling in thermals and can display arrival altitudes at nearby airports or landing sites. The large built-in battery makes it the ultimate portable soaring flight computer to take with you in rental or club gliders. Over 5000 Oudie units have been sold around the world since it was introduced a few years ago - so it is likely you'll see several of them at your local gliderport.

Works great with external data from FLARM and Vario Units
With the release of SeeYou Mobile 6.0 the Oudie IGC is able to receive vario data and FLARM data from external devices - making it the ultimate Oudie. It works great in your glider - connected to your vario or soaring flight computer. It also works great all by itself when you fly a club or rental glider.

Features:

  • Screen brightness: 900 to 950 nits (extremely bright - sunlight readable)
  • Large 5" screen
  • Built-in variometer (not Total Energy compensated, but it works fine as long as you keep your airspeed relatively constant)
  • Built-in aviation grade GPS for stand-alone operation
  • Built-in IGC approved flight recorder with ENL (engine noise level) recording capability
  • Landscape and Portrait screen orientations
  • mini-USB power/data connector located on the top of the unit - so a connected data cable won't stick out below the unit and get bumped and abused by your leg in flight
  • Non-volatile memory - all data is retained if the battery gets low.  (Most PDAs lose all their memory and must be re-setup when their battery gets low.)
  • Oudie Cable Kit- It connects to the unit's mini-USB connector and includes a built-in 12V to 5V power converter and an RS-232 voltage level converter.  This supplied Oudie cable can be connected directly to a FLARM or PowerFLARM unit. 
  • SeeYou Mobile soaring flight software is pre-installed
  • Vector maps for the world are pre-installed
  • Airport and Airspace files for much of the world are pre-installed.  Below is a list of the included files.  To select the airport and airspace files for your region, in SeeYou Mobile, go to Menu > Settings > Files.
    It is also easy to generate airport and airspace files for your area using the Mobile Wizard in SeeYou on the PC.  The Mobile Wizard is shown in my SeeYou Training video number 46 here.

    Pre-installed Airport and Airspace files:
    • Africa
    • Alps
    • Australia
    • BeNeLux
    • The Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Poland
    • France
    • Germany
    • Hungary
    • New Zealand
    • Scandinavia
    • Spain
    • UK
    • USA (divided into files for "USA West", "USA Central" and "USA East"

    I can provide airport and airspace files for other countries or regions upon request.  I charge $20 for that service.

Oudie IGC vs. the Oudie 2
The Oudie IGC has the same bright screen as the Oudie 2 and is supplied with a Lifetime License for SeeYou Mobile. The horizontal and vertical dimensions and screen size are the same on the Oudie IGC and Oudie 2. However, while the Oudie 2 is only thick enough for a battery that lasts about 2 hours, the Oudie IGC is much more thick - accommodating a battery that will run the device for over 12 hours. The larger battery makes the unit much more deep (thick) (25 mm for the Oudie IGC vs. 14 mm for the Oudie 2) and heavier (12.3 ounces for the Oudie IGC vs. 6.4 ounces for the Oudie2). The Oudie IGC also has a built-in pressure sensor which provides a precision altimeter and uncompensated (not Total Energy) variometer. Another benefit the Oudie IGC offers is an aviation grade GPS and an IGC Approved GPS flight recorder. The Oudie 2's GPS is setup for use in a car and the GPS does some smoothing to the position and path which make it a little less precise in the air. That said, many, many Oudie 2 users have found its built-in GPS to be fine for soaring. I suspect that the Oudie IGC's GPS will allow the unit to calculate wind speed and direction more precisely than the Oudie 2's GPS. The Oudie 2 and Oudie IGC are supplied with the same accessories. The Oudie 2 has been used quite often with an external battery and LXNAV Nano flight recorder. The Oudie IGC combines all those items into a single, compact device. The task that is entered into the Task screen is declared into the Oudie IGC's built-in GPS flight recorder at take-off.

Note: The Oudie IGC cannot receive data from Condor soaring flight simulator software.

Please see the Oudie Comparison Table

Does the Oudie IGC replace the Oudie 2?
Not necessarily - Customers that can power the Oudie 2 with 12V from the glider battery and receive GPS data from a soaring flight computer will be very happy with the Oudie 2. it is significantly smaller and lighter than the Oudie IGC. The Oudie IGC will be popular with customers that would have needed to use an external battery with the Oudie 2 while flying in club or rental gliders. The Oudie IGC does everything the Oudie 2 does - and more. It works great in your glider - connected to your vario or soaring flight computer. It also works great all by itself when you fly a club or rental glider.

Oudie IGC Variometer
The Oudie IGC has a built-in pressure transducer which is the precision source for the unit's variometer and altimeter. As you can see in the video below, the variometer is very sensitive. Sailplane pilots may or may not find it useful - since it cannot be connected to a Total Energy probe it is not TE compensated and will show "stick thermals" (climb when you pull back on the stick to slow down and sink when you push forward on the stick to speed-up). Sailplane pilot will find it to be a great backup variometer - the Oudie IGC's large battery assures that it will be ready if you need it. That said, many glider pilots learned to fly without TE compensated variometers. A non-TE compensated variometer works fine as long as you keep the airspeed relatively constant. When connected to an external vario, the Thermal Assistant uses the vario data from the external vario - which is great.

Recommended Accessories

Memory Expansion: microSD card, It accepts either standard or high-density (greater than 2 GB) cards . It also has 8 GB or internal memory (of which 2GB will be used by pre-installed world wide vector maps).  The remaining memory can be used to store waypoint and airspace files.  The Oudie looks like a USB Flash Drive when connected to a PC using a standard USB cable.  Therefore, the Mobile Wizard (in SeeYou on the PC) can be used to send waypoint and airspace files directly to the Oudie memory.

With Oudie there will be no more empty batteries, lost data, re-installations and re-registrations. All the data is kept in flash memory so even if the battery goes dead all you have to do is refill the battery and everything is there. No setup, no installation, nothing.  Since it comes with SeeYou Mobile and worldwide Vector Maps installed, initial setup is greatly reduced.  You still need to transfer waypoint and airspace files to the device through the microSD card, or to the internal memory using a USB cable, but that is about it.

Question: Is a microSD memory card required?
Answer: The Oudie has a microSD slot, but does not include a microSD card.  A customer supplied microSD card may be used to transfer flight logs from the Oudie to your PC and to transfer waypoint and airspace files from the PC to the Oudie.  However, and SD card is not necessarily required because you can also transfer data by connecting the Oudie to a PC using a standard USB cable.  There is plenty of memory (about 6 GB) in the Oudie which can be used for storing waypoint and airspace files and flight logs.  When you connect the Oudie to the PC the Oudie looks like a USB Flash Drive.  You can then use Windows File Explorer to transfer the files between the PC and Oudie.  However, some pilots (especially pilots in a syndicate in which many pilots use the glider and Oudie) may want to use a microSD card to transfer flight logs home and leave the Oudie at the gliderport. 

Question: Can I run WinPilot or pocket*StrePla or Glide Navigator II on the Oudie?
Answer: No.  Those software products have not been upgraded to run on devices like this one.

Question: Can I run XCSoar or LX8000 on the Oudie?
Answer: Yes. However, I highly recommend SeeYou Mobile.

Oudie-Case Oudie Case
By far the most common reason for repairing an Oudie this year was a broken screen. Oudies were either dropped from altitude to concrete or squashed by the weight of a pilot who did not expect the Oudie to be where it was. Naviter has therefore set out and designed a tough carry case for your Oudie.  It is made out of tough rubber-like material which is there to protect the screen. It also includes a carabiner for easy attachment to your pilot bag in order to keep it at the top of the bag rather than down below.  A nice, classy touch is the inclusion of the Naviter logo - to help you remember which of your toys is stored inside. It works great with Oudie, Oudie 2, Oudie IGC, and Oudie 3 (for paragliders and handgliders) units.

Dimensions: 155 x 105 x 27 mm (6.1 x 4.1 x 1.1 inches)

Note: The case also works great with an iPAQ hx4700 or just about any other PDA or PNA.

  • Adapter, RJ45 to DB-9m
    This is a configurable adapter that can be used to connect the Oudie Power/data cable to a variety of soaring instruments.  Simply push the pins into the receptacles on the DB-9m connector and snap the connector into the housing. 

    Important Note: Make sure the unused wires cannot short together.  Cutting them off is not good enough.  I recommend putting shrink tubing over the connectors on the unused pins.  That way they can't short and will be available for future use.

Support-Phone Support Over the Phone or Web With Free Web Conferencing - One-on-one - Very Popular

Accelerate your learning curve!  Get up-to-speed on your new soaring software or instrument in an hour or 2 - with help from an expert.

I offer training over the phone on the soaring software topics listed below for $60/hour.  What we cover is up to you.  It includes free web conferencing features as described below.  I will bill you for the minimum time period of 1 hour ($60) and if we don't use it all I will make a note of the amount of time remaining for you to use in future support calls.  1 hour is usually plenty to get most people on the right track.  Phone charges are not an issue as I will call you.  After you place the order, please call to schedule a time for the training.  The best time for me is usually between 9 AM and 5 PM, or between 9 PM and 11 PM U.S. Central Time, Monday through Friday, but other times can be arranged.

Customer Feedback

"Thank you, Paul, for your marvelous support.  Not only is your website a fabulous source of information for glider pilots, but you've been unfailingly responsive to my hardware and software needs.  Last but not least, I've gotten much more out of my equipment as a result of our remote-tutoring sessions by cell phone and computer hook-up.  Thanks again!"

Paul,

"Now that the soaring season is over, I wanted to thank you for another wonderful year of support from you in connection with my soaring activities.  It's been wonderful knowing that you are there to help with technical problems, and I love the opportunity to have remote tutoring sessions with you.  Thanks again, very much."

Skype
If you want to call me for free you can reach me using Skype.  It is a free internet phone service that requires only a high-speed internet connection and a microphone and speaker for your computer.  You can download it free here: http://www.skype.com.

Web Conferencing - Included - Free of Charge
I include free web conferencing with all technical support calls.  I use a free service called Join.me.  It makes it easy to connect our computers and (with your permission) view your screen.  I have been using web conferencing a lot lately for one-on-one training/support sessions.  I can talk you though a software download or soaring software feature and you learn from the experience because you do the work while I watch.  I can also take control of your machine (only with your permission) to do complex tasks more quickly.  The web conferencing is amazing.  It is as if I am in the same room with the you, looking over your shoulder (at the PC screen only - no need to comb your hair or get out of your pajamas).  There is no need to install software at your end.  I use this service during nearly every phone support session I do - several times a week.
