Oudie 2 Support stuff
Connecting to external GPS source
There are three basic ways to connect Oudie to the GPS source. You can choose which option you would like to use thorugh Menu > Settings > Input dialog in SeeYou Mobile.
1. Built-in GPS
The built-in GPS in Oudie is always on COM 1 > 4800bps. You can setup the Oudie to use internal GPS by selecting Menu > Settings > Input > Internal GPS
2. Serial cable connection to external GPS source
The supplied Serial data cable and converters enable you to connect to external data source such as your Variometer, Flight data recorder, anti-collision device or similar. You should always use COM 4 on Oudie for this type of connection.
The supplied Data/Power cable has a RJ45 connector by default with standard IGC pinout. Several converters are included in the box which enable you to connect to flight recorders with RJ12 or DB9 connectors. Special cables are also available as an accessory for a very simple direct connection to selected flight recorders such as LX 7007, CAI 302, LX 1600 etc.
Another way to receive external data is to connect through Bluetooth. Go to Menu > Settings > Input
> Bluetooth to pair Bluetooth device with Oudie.
K6 Bluetooth device has a special protocol which enables even more features than the standard Bluetooth protocol. It is fully supported in Oudie.
Upgrading Oudie 2 Firmware
Upgrading the firmware on the Oudie is as simple as downloading one file from www.naviter.com, saving it in the root of your Oudie's Resident Flash memory and resetting the Oudie.
If you need more instructions this is the whole procedure:
1. Download the Update executable from www.naviter.com to your PC (or directly to Oudie, then skip to #5):
2. Connect your Oudie with PC using the USB cable which was supplied in the box
3. Once connected, tap "Connect to PC" or the USB Stick icon on Oudie
4. You should now see Oudie as an external Mass Storage drive on your PC (named TFAT)
5. Copy UpdateOudie.exe to the root of your Oudie device
6. Reset Oudie or press and hold the On/Off key for 1 second and select "Power off". Then power it back on by holding the button for another second.
7. Wait until it boots into an Update dialog box
8. Press "Update" and wait until the process is finished
9. Reboot the Oudie one more time, then it is updated.
Copying Files to an Oudie 2
Copying files to Oudie is exactly that. If your Waypoint and Airspace files are already in a format which is recognized by SeeYou Mobile, then all you need to do is copy them over and select to use them through Menu > Settings > Files.
If you have prepared your files in SeeYou, then you can also use the Mobile Wizard which is built into SeeYou already.
First page of the Mobile wizard allows you to select the Items you wish to transfer to the device.
Second page gives you the possibility to select the name and destination folder for the data you have
selected to upload on the first page. For Oudie choose "Copy to my Computer" as the destination for your files.
Third page asks you to draw a rectangle for the area you want to transfer to
Fourth page shows progress in transferring or saving your files.
For UK Files, please see our download page here where we have already prepared them for you! Please sign up for our newsletter and we will let you know of any changes as well.
Oudie 2 Cables and converters
Oudie is delivered with a variety of cables and converters which enable you to connect Oudie to your almost any logger "out of the box":
1. Power and data cable
It provides power to Oudie and (optionally) to the device which is connected to the RJ45 connector. It has three connectors: mini USB connector must be connected to Oudie black and red cable must be connected to 12V power supply (red is 12V, black is ground). RJ45 connector with standard IGC pinout
Use directly with these devices: Swiss Flarm, Volkslogger, K6 Mux, VW1150
2. RJ 45 Female/Female Gender Changer
This connector can be used for extending the 8-wires cable using another RJ45 connector (for example ethernet cable). It can also be used to connect RJ12 connector with 6-wires cable which can be used for data communication with Colibri, LX 20/2000, MiniBox, RedBox and other devices using RJ12 connectors.
3. 20 cm cable extension with male RJ12 connectors
This is an extension cable which can be used for both power and data transmission between Oudie and connected device. It must be used together with RJ45 Gender Changer. Use RJ45 Gender Changer and RJ12 cable extension directly with these devices:
Colibri, LX 20/2000, MiniBox, RedBox
4. RJ45->DB9 Male and Female converters
This is a "do-it-yourself" DB9 converter. The converter pinout is free. You can pin any wire from the RJ45
connector to any pin on the DB9 connector. Typical use:
.LX 5000, LX 7000, Standard RS 232, .LX 160 (NOT the "si" version - see the warning below) Zander/SDI GP940 and GP941
WARNING: If you are attempting to connect to devices which provide 5V on any of the pins please make absolutely sure that the pin where the other device provides 5V is not connected to the White or Brown wires (pins 1 and 2 on RJ45). This will cause collision and possibly damage to both connected devices! Take particular care when connecting the following devices: Cambridge 302, LX 7007, LX 1600, LX160si and others with built-in 12->5V converter.
The following cables are not included in the box, but are available as chargeable optional extras:
CAI 302 / Zander ZS1 (when used with Rotary Switch) / Baumi Cable
Connects all models of Cambridge 302 with Oudie. This is a direct cable from CAI to Oudie which provides both power and data communication between Oudie and CAI 302. The same cable can be used also with Zander ZS1 when connected to the Zander Rotary Switch. It can also be used with a Baumi converter.
Connects LX 7007, LX 1600, LX 160 si with Oudie. This is a direct cable from LX devices to Oudie which provides both power and data communication between Oudie and LX instruments.
Please note that these cables use 5V power for charging the Oudie. For this reason please make sure you do not use these cables in any other setup than the one recommended by the manual otherwise you risk damage on either Oudie or connected device.
