And what else is special about XC Remote?
It does not only work with our XCNAV EDITION, but with any other Android device with BT function. Regardless of whether it is a tablet or mobile phone, Kobo or OpenVario with added bluetooth adapter.
XCRemote is optimized for XCSoar, but also works with LK8000. In LK8000 certain button functions can be directly remapped via the USER MENU SETTINGS.
Default settings are:
XCRemote is powered either by a connection to 5 volts or to the 3.3 volts provided by Flarm. Due to the inacessability of a "IN STICK BUILD BATTERY" and a possible threat through a battery malfunction, we decided against this solution. Nevertheless, with an onboard charging circuit and an micro USB plug (not freely accesible in retail version, only needs a small cutout ), XCRemote would still be able to operate via battery and a little DIY work.
Mounting is very easy though. With the internal diameter of 24mm the quality CNC aluminium base easily slips over any Schleicher sticks. For other glider types there comes an adapter. Finally it will only be fixed by 3 allen screws in the aluminium base.
The integrated radio button can easily be connected with the included quick soldering connectors and the power connected to any 5V or 3.3V via RJ 12 Plug provided by your FLARM.
The installation is extremely easy. With an inner diameter of 24mm of the high-quality CNC aluminum base, the XCRemote is suitable for all Schleicher aircraft without adaptation. For other manufacturers, there are adapters included in the price for the respective stick diameter.
XCRemote is simply plugged onto the control link and secured with 3 Allen screws.
The integrated radio button is simply connected to the supplied quick solder connectors and the power supply is connected via USB or RJ12 plugs via Flarm.
The STF/Vario function is in the basic version on the
Designed to operate with the XCVARIO and works wirelessly via NMEA communication via XCSoar.
If XCRemote is operated with Lk8000 or another Vario, there is the option of an additional STF/VARIO button.
XCRemote has an OVER THE AIR UPDATE function, so it can be updated to the latest firmware version without dismantling or screwing. Changing between the LK8000 and XCSOAR is also easily done in just a few steps.
