Default ANN: SoaringPilot Version 1.9.5 Released

All,
This is to announce the availability of SoaringPilot version 1.9.5. It may
be downloaded from:
www.soaringpilot.org
The below is just a partial list of the new features, enhancements and fixes
included in Version 1.9.5 since the last publically announced version of
SoaringPilot (version 1.9.2). The full list may be viewed on the
SoaringPilot homepage or more specifically at:
www.soaringpilot.org/SoaringPilot19.htm

Later!

-Mark
----------------------------------------------

1. Garmin iQue 3600 Support - SoaringPilot now supports this new PalmOS
PDA with integrated 12 channel WAAS-capable GPS. You can see the iQue at:
http://www.garmin.com/products/iQue3600/
2. Dynamic Input Area Support - Provides more screen area for the moving
map.
3. Cambridge 302 Support for Task Declaration
4. Cambridge 302 Declarations Can Include Pilot Info and Glider Polar Info
5. Cambridge 302 Waypoint Transfer Support
6. Cambridge 302 Ballast, MC Value and Bugs Transfer Re-Validated
7. Bluetooth GPS Support - Added support for reading NMEA data from
a Bluetooth GPS.
8. Terrain Elevation Data Usage - This version has the ability to
load and read terrain elevation data in order to provide
the current terrain elevation value as well as an "above ground" (AGL)
altitude approximation value. The terrain information originates from
GTOPO30-formatted data which is readily available via the internet.
In addition, as a result of NASA's SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topography
Mission) last year, a new topographical dataset is also available in
the same GTOPO30 format. It is called SRTM30. SRTM data was used
to update the older USGS GTOPO30 global DEM, by averaging the data to
30 arc-sec resolution and replacing GTOPO30 heixels between the
latitudes of 60 North and 56 Souths. This enhanced elevation dataset
can also be used.
9. On-the-fly, User-Selectable Altitude Display Mode - The options are MSL,
AGL
and QNH.
10. Support for FAI Task Start/Finish Types
11. Fast & Slow Log Values -
Slow is used normally but it will switch to
Fast when you get close to a turnpoint of a defined task.
12. Turn Direction Arrows on Moving Map
One Arrow - If you are between 5 and 10 degrees off the require
course, you will see one arrow in the correct direction.
Two Arrows - If you are greater than 10 degrees off the required
course, you will see two arrows.
13. Multiple Above/Below Glideslope Arrows -
Two Up Arrows - Above 2 Times the Safety Altitude
One Up Arrow - Between Safety Altitude and 2 Times the Safety Altitude
One Down Arrow - Between Zero A.Alt (Arrival Altitude) and the
Safety Altitude (marginal final glide)
Two Down Arrows - Negative A.Alt
14. Dual MC/Sink Range On Final Glide Page - For those pilots that
are lucky enough to fly in regions of the world with consistent lift
over 5 knots (or equivalent), there are now two ranges for the six
MC/Sink values on the Final Glide page. The Low range goes from 0 to
5 knots/ms or 0 to 500 fpm. The High range goes from 0 to 10 knots/ms
or 0 to 1000fpm. The altitude and speed values will match the
current range. The current display range is toggled by touching the
MC(Speed Opt Mode)/Sink(Distance Opt Mode) column heading/label.

I forgot one important addition:Reading SeeYou Waypoints - You can now read in waypoints
in the SeeYou .cup format.* I have not yet implemented
reading the tasks from the .cup format but will do
so in the future. Andrej is supposed to be updating
his .cup format document to include information on
the additional AREA turnpoint information. That will
be included as well.-MarkAt 20:12 06 October 2003, Mark Hawkins wrote:All,This is to announce the availability of SoaringPilot
