Connect your leGPSBip to new Android smartphone with e-ink screen

Yotaphone (120 €) has 2 screens: a classic color screen, and at the back an e-ink screen (like eReaders).
There it is, connected to leGPSBip with XCTrack: the perfect instruments combination for regular flights with display or advanced cross-country flights with livetrack.
And of course, leGPSBip by itself remains the solar-powered GPS tracker that will accompany you in all your hike&fly!

      Hi Kirill,
      You may have heard about economy of scale:
      Smarphones are mainstream products made by million in China.
      LeGPSBip is made in France by a small factory for a niche market called paragliding.

    Wow, that’s cool!
    I was considering to get a small Kobo for this, but the Yota also looks very interesting, as I don’t have a smartphone so far. I’ll definitely check this out!

      Thanks Pit, the Yota is definitely an alternative to the Kobo: cheap and reliable with live tracking capability (with a simple extra SIM card).

    Have you tested the autonomy of the yota phone when running xctrack?
    And is it possible to charge the phone while using the bipbip using a USB splitter and an external battery?

      Yotaphone with internal GPS disabled (provided by leGPSBip) last about 12h flying.
      Currently, with micro USB, there is not solution to charge and connect at the same time, but with USB-C it might change.
