Overview
My goal is to help soaring pilots get the most out of their soaring tools.  The training products on this page are designed to help you:

  • Get the most out of your soaring instruments or software
  • Learn about features you were not aware of
  • Spend less time learning how to use new products
  • Spend less time re-learning how to use products you haven't used for a while
  • Know the products well before you fly so you can concentrate on flying rather than learning your software in flight - which can be very dangerous.

Installing US Sectional Aeronautical Charts
*** This video is somewhat out of date. The U.S. Sectional Chart map files are no longer available on the Naviter web site. They are available here: http://soaringdata.info/aviation/sectionals/CMR%20Format/.
Save the desired files to your computer and then, in SeeYou, go to the Tools menu and select Raster Maps. Then use the "Add" button to select the desired files.

8 Installing Satellite Images
*** This video is out of date. It is no longer necessary to satellite image maps. SeeYou automatically downloads satellite image maps as needed when you open a map or flight window and use the small "S" icon in the lower-right corner of the screen to enable the display of satellite image maps.

9 Registration Key & Waypoint Wizard
*** This video is out of date. It is no longer necessary to enter a long registration key when first enabling SeeYou, or after purchasing a SeeYou-Upgrade license. SeeYou now prompts you to log into the "SeeYou Cloud". Your SeeYou license status is stored in the SeeYou Cloud. That is easier than trying to keep track of a registration key or serial number.
Also, the video shows the "Waypoint Wizard". I don't recommend using it to import waypoints for the USA because it doesn't necessarily have current U.S. airport data. I have made current U.S. airport files available here: http://cumulus-soaring.com/seeyou.htm#Downloads

19 Enabling Raster Maps
*** This video is slightly out of date. The information about enabling the display of U.S. sectional charts is correct. But the information about satellite image maps is not exactly correct. Satellite image maps are now downloaded automatically when you open a map or flight window and use the small "S" button in the lower-left corner of the screen to enable their display.

File Management - Points.cup File - Favorite
*** This video is slightly out of date because changes to Windows file structure made it necessary to change the location in which SeeYou stores the "Points.cup" file that contains the active database of turnpoints and tasks. It is now stored in the C:\ProgramData\Naviter\SeeYou directory. It was previously stored in the ProgramFiles directory.

Importing Waypoints - Favorite
*** This video is slightly out of date. SeeYou has been updated to make it possible to open a new waypoint file either in a new window, or by replacing the waypoints and tasks currently in use in SeeYou. I have found that some features work best when you are working with the waypoints and tasks in SeeYou's active "points.cup" file. Therefore, before I open a new waypoint file, I do as the video suggests and first save the current waypoint file to my computer. Then I open the new waypoint file and select "Overwrite My Waypoints & Tasks". That puts the new data into the "active waypoints and task" data file that is saved when you quit SeeYou and re-opened automatically when you re-start SeeYou.
