SeeYou can communicate with an increasing number of flight recorders. The Connection Wizard dialog  allows you to connect to several types of loggers through a uniform user interface. For the getting started tutorial it would probably be best if we tell you how to do it on a specific device. 


Example of communication with a Colibri


Colibri is a famous FAI approved logger from LX Navigation. It is well known in gliding as well as  paragliding and hanggliding. It will therefore feature as an example of how communication goes with SeeYou.
