There is a new XC Tracer, XC Tracer Mini IV GPS. It’s basically an XC Tracer Mini III GPS with USB-C. The MIVG has the same sensors as the XC Tracer Maxx. What’s new with the MIVG is that data is only transmitted via BLE in flight.
Please note that there is a worldwide shortage of electronic components. Therefore no reliable delivery times can be given. Delivery of ordered Varios will be in the order of received orders.
The XC Tracer Mini GPS has been used by more than 50% of the XAlps pilots?
Don’t be surprised not to have to charge it for a full season! There is a lithium polymer battery built in, when fully charged the battery has enough energy to power XC Tracer Mini IV GPS for more than 20h hours without sunshine. But since the battery gets charged when it’s exposed to sunlight (even when the device is turned off) by the solar cell you get an almost infinite autonomy! In case it should be necessary you can also charge the battery via the USB-C cable that got shipped with your vario.
BLUETOOTH AND USB CONNECTIVITY
The Bluetooth BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) 4.0 module built in allows you to connect the Mini IV GPS to your favorite app (see list here) on your Android /iOS / e-reader device. A connection over USB is also possible, but it is recommended to use BLE whenever possible. You can configure the BLE strings that you want to send to your phone, tablet or e-reader using a simple configuration file.
One button and that’s all. You’ll use it to switch on / switch off the device and to choose the volume from 0 (silent) to 3 (loud). Configuration is made via an intuitive text file. If you struggle with the updates or just to access to the XC Tracer memory check out this page.
We highly recommend you the software LogFly! Intuitive and compatible with XC Tracer. Don’t bother counting your hours anymore. It does everything by itself and provides many interesting statistics.
