  • Cleaner start-up and shut-down screens
  • Updated, unified texts for menus and settings throughout whole 6000 vario family
  • The link the an FAF airspace file on the SD card is removed whenever airspaces are uploaded from the computer, or when airspaces are deleted through the menu
  • All numeric values (e.g. cylinder radius) can be increased / decreased rapidly with the right / left arrow keys, and slower, for finer settings, with the up / down arrow keys
  • Distances in routes are shown with one decimal
  • Range of vane wheel correction: 50 % to 150 %
  • In the IGC file, the “takeoff” and “landing” C-records are now set according to the specification
  • Bug fix, uploading airspaces no longer leads to re-initialization with wrong values (e.g. serial number 500)

Important: This update will delete all waypoints and routes from the vario. Make sure you save them to the SD card or your computer before updating.
