RE: LX8000

Firmware version: not Known

Question:

Two pieces of information that I would occasionally find useful: start time for the task (I always forget to take note) and the altitude of the airspace ceiling above me. After the recent glitch with the airways, I would feel happier if I knew it really was giving me the true situation. Why start to circle when you might only be allowed to gain 500 feet?

 

Answer from LXnav\Navboys:

Whilst the start time is recorded by the LX8000 there is no task data label which corresponds to the start time at the moment. However, there is a task data label for task duration which you could use and calculate backwards to start time. (I have asked LXnav if in the next release they can include a start time label.)

For the airspace above warning you are looking for, you could use the airspace buffer warning capability. By default this is set to 100m and if you are likely to enter into it then you will get an orange warning. If you are in the vertical buffer zone and climbing you will get a red warning. There is no airspace limit above data label at the moment. Personally, I set the buffer to 500ft vertically which gives me enough warning and even on a really good day I am unlikely to take a 500ft height gain in one turn!

RE: LX9000 and AHRS

Firmware version: unknown

Question:

How do you disable AHRS in an LX9000 for a competition? When I set it to Off, the screen still shoes a horizon?

Answer from LXnav\Navboys:

In the Hardware setup page, go to AHRS and select “Contest Mode” this will disable the AHRS for 14 days!. Please note, setting AHRS to Off does not work at the moment but will be fixed in later versions of the firmware.

RE: LX9000

Firmware version: Latest

Question:

I have just loaded the latest firmware and the screen is now mostly red!!

Answer from LXnav\Navboys:

The latest firmware includes the latest UK airspace and near your site (Lasham) there is an area of Class A airspace (Southampton approach AW and Gatwick Approach Airway) which in your LX is displayed as semi-transparent RED are with a RED border. If you are zoomed out, your screen will be mostly Red semi-transparent! Modify the airspace attributes to show the airspace as transparent but keep the border as RED!
