leGPSBip User Manual

Searching GPS : the more it blinks orange, the more satellites are being acquired. Once GPS fix is done, it stops blinking.

You may need to wait up to 10min for an initial GPS fix (may vary with cloud coverage).

Notes :
Without GPS fix, your track will not be recorded.
When acquiring satellites, the battery power consumption is important.

Antenna positioning : Make sure the device is facing up to get the best satellite reception.

Notes :
Even on the ground when you are getting ready, make sure nothing covers leGPSBip.
Track recording will start at take-off detection, otherwise, in the Configurator, you can turn off take-off detection, and recording will start at GPS fix and run as long as the device is on.

You can select four different volumes.

Vario silent volume : voice volume and LED behavior configurable in the Configurator.

Note :
Vario volume consumes battery power : when set to maximum, the battery power consumption is important.

You can change the Up sensitivity without the Configurator (just before take off) following the diagram above.

Note : if you have multiple profiles enabled, you will be asked to select your profile beforehand.

You can change the Sink alarm without the Configurator (just before take off) following the diagram above.

Note : if you have multiple profiles enabled, you will be asked to select your profile beforehand.

Weak lift buzzer : short modulations indicating weak lift. Threshold values can be configured in the Configurator.

Note : When vario is off or disabled, vocal manual mode is enabled when double-click.

You can request flight information anytime by double tapping or double clicking (if vario is off or disabled) on the device.

Note : Double-tap force, double-tap disabled on ground, and voice format can be configured in the Configurator.

You can either connect the device to your computer as a USB flash drive, or charge it using your smartphone AC charger.

leGPSBip is always charging while under the sun ! It will take about 20h of direct full sun to charge it completely.

Note : do not place the device behind a window, or the windshield of a car, leGPSBip won’t charge, and the battery will be damaged.

leGPSBip runtime depends on the amount of sunshine and the activated options in the Configurator (see energy info for each parameter).

See connectivity guide here.

You can enable multiple profiles in the Configurator. If more than one profile enabled, selection will be asked at start up.

Proceed to a factory reset anytime : default settings will be applied and language selection requested.
