Practicing on the ground always helps. There are two recommended ways how to learn to use Oudie before you get airborne:

1. File replay

This is by far the most efficient way to learn Oudie 3 software. What it does is it replays an already flown  flight and enables you to see the data you would have been looking at if you had Oudie 3 with you on the particular flight.  

In order to set this up, copy some of your flights from the desktop PC to your device. Then go to Menu >  Settings > Input , then change input to "File". Press the "..." button and choose a flight you wish to replay. Now use the buttons to change Waypoints, MacCready and pages. Tap on the screen to see what happens and setup Navboxes to what you want them to be. Note that you can setup Navboxes separately for each of the two Map pages. 

If you wish you can replay your flight as well directly from Logbook: Menu > Next > Logbook > select flight >Tools > Replay flight . 

2. Simulator

In the Simulator input mode, you can move the glider freely even without a pre-recorded flight which  enables you to go places you haven't visited in the air yet. To move the glider, tap on it, then drag a line out of the glider in the direction you want it to move. The longer the line, the faster it will go in the specified direction. By learning how to use Oudie 3 software on the ground you will have more time to think about gliding, task and scenery in the air. It is warmly recommended.

3. Oudie 3 Simulator for desktop PC

In addition we have created a 100% functional copy of Oudie 3 software which runs on the desktop PC. This  program enables you to test all features of Oudie 3 before you decide that you would like to use Oudie 3 in flight. You can download it here:
