When you turn the Oudie 3 ON for the first time (or after a reset), navigation software will start automatically.


1. Language

First, select language you will use on your Oudie and confirm it by tapping on the Select button:


2. Region

Select region in which you are going to fly and confirm it with Select button:


3. 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 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).



4. Map with symbols

This is where you will be looking for information all the time. You can tap the symbols to bring up additional dialogs for:

  • Wind - by tapping on the Wind vector.
  • Map orientation - by tapping on the North arrow.
  • Flight properties dialog - by tapping on the arrival altitude/MC symbol.
  • Move the glider - by tapping on the glider. This is also a sort of Pan function for the map. 

Tapping on a way point on the map gives you a list of Waypoints, sorted on distance from the tap. This is  a quick way to select a waypoint from a group of waypoints. Dragging a line on the screen gives you a list of Waypoints, primarily sorted on the direction of the drag and secondly on the distance from the glider. This is useful for searching for a waypoint that is not on the screen, but you know it is in the specified direction. The Navboxes are what you will use to display the information you need. Be it Final glide, Navigation, Optimization or another issue, use Menu > Settings > Navboxes to select which items you want displayed.
