When you turn the Oudie 3 on for the first time or after a reset, navigation software is started automatically.


1. Create new profile

 

Oudie 3 has pre-installed two templates for profiles: 

  • XC,
  • RACE.


Choose one of them to add new profile to Oudie 3. One application for several profiles is when you fly different paragliders and need different setups for them (Competiton flying - RACE template, XC flying - XC template, etc...). When there is more than one profile available, you get to choose profile when starting the application for the next time.

4. Connecting to the GPS


When the navigation device is turned on for the first time or after a long period of non-use, initializing the integrated GPS receiver can take up to 40 minutes. Optimal conditions for problem-free and fast GPS receptions are: having a clear view of the open sky, no high buildings immediately close by and remaining in one place until the GPS position has been determined. The Navbox on the upper side of the map will show you the GPS status (by default - you can change the Navboxes later).


5. Map with symbols


This is where you will be looking for information all the time. You can do many things on the Map page:



You can move the map by dragging it. It will return to the position of the glider after 10 seconds automatically or by pressing the Map orientation symbol. You can move the Navboxes around the map to place then where you need them.


You can also tap on any symbol to bring up additional dialog's for:

  • Map orientation by tapping on upper(North) arrow.
  • Wind by tapping on the Wind vector.
  • Map zoom by tapping on the Zoom button. 
  • Pan mode is a special mode where you can freely move around the map to explore some details along the course. 
  • Move the glider (lower arrow) if you tap on the glider. 
  • Moving on Map 2 by tapping on the Map 2 Navbox. 


Tapping on a waypoint on the map gives you a list of Airspaces and Waypoints. Waypoints are sorted on distance from the tap. This is a quick way to select a waypoint from a group of waypoints. 


The Navboxes are what you will use to display the information you need. Be at waiting for Start gate, Final glide, Navigation, Optimization or another issue, use Menu > Navboxes to select which items you want displayed.


6. Command bar holds two shortcuts to specific actions. 


The default actions for software buttons from left to right (Command bar) are:
