Default XCSoar for Android

Max,

Great Job! Been playing with this in Florida this week and it works incredibly well on the Motorola Xoom tablet & the DroidX.

I just installed this on my droid x, can you please give a brief
description of how to load maps and waypoints
onto the phone, this could come in really handy as a backup glide
computer also.

Thank for the great work Max!

Hey, I had described that already in my previous post:

After installing the software, copy your data files (maps,
waypoints, airspaces) to the directory "XCSoarData" on the SD card,
launch XCSoar, and configure the files (double-tap to open the menu,
Config / Config / Setup System).


You will find the manual, pregenerated map files and a map generator
for custom maps on our web site (http://www.xcsoar.org/).

Works great. Removed SD card, inserted into laptop and placed
waypoint and SUA files in Config folder. Then went to system setup
and selected them. Can't wait to give it a try in flight.

Default XCSoar for Android (and RAM tablet mount)

Nice work!
Just put this on a Galaxy Tab.
The easiest installation of XC Soar (and probably Winpilot, SeeYou
Mobile) I've ever experienced.
Incidentally, RAM supposedly now offers a good looking mount for
tablets. Link below.

Coincidentally, I just posted pictures of my new Dell Streak mount to
the xcsoar-user mailing list:

This is Dell's original Car Kit, with the vacuum cup replaced by a
metal disc, screwed behind my instrument panel. The USB socket below
it provides 5V from the main battery.
