Please attach a picture of your LX90XX/80XX about screen to ensure we provide you with the correct Wi-Fi module
Wi-Fi module is compatible with LX80XX/90XX with GEN 3 T20 HF or above. (You can check which generation your device is on the about screen in settings. - If your device is GEN 2 then unfortunately you cannot have Wi-Fi option. If you have GEN 3 without HF then to have Wi-Fi your device would have to be sent back to LX to have the whole system updated. The cost of parts, repair and shipping may differ.)
The LXNAV Wi-Fi Module can be used to connect to the internet through a wireless network such as a smart phone that can act as a "Personal Hotspot". It offers many powerful features - such as the ability to e-mail your flight log to any computer while still sitting in the glider. It can also be used to download and display weather data on the map (coming soon).
Having realtime weather in the cockpit and displayed on the moving map is a giant stepforward. It’s still early days but rainfall radar and satellite images are promised for the future. All this new technology is heavily reliant on being connected to the Internet but as coverage continues to improve via your mobile phone, it is not unrealistic to get the latest weather on the grid and in areas of the world where phone coverage at altitude is possible; you will be able to get updates in the air.
The SD card slot on our LX9070 has gone u/s. Great advice from Shaun on the phone on alternatives. WiFi parts and unlock code arrived the next day.
