eVario - Variometer Paraglider
iOS Universal Sports
eVario is your connected flight navigation companion during and after your adventure trip, helping you to visualise relevant data, assist you while progressing in the air by returning visual and acoustical feedback.
eVario is a 9-axis measurement (accelerometer, gyrometer, gps), barometer assisted, connected and intuitive instrument with a polychrom display, exploiting the embedded device’s hardware and accurate sensoric, without need to connect external devices. It typically provides real time information of a variometer like altimeter, speedometer, odometer, chronometer, gyrometer, anemometer for every (air)craft pilot. Its configurable cockpit allows you to keep track of the most relevant to you. The integrated data logger automatically records your 3D location and provides the recorded track file to e.g. your iCloud Drive for track visualisation or flight metrics.
Turn on & Fly!
No need for additional/external hardware.
eVario is mainly designed for paragliding/hang-gliding, but may be used as well while biking, hiking, running, sailing, skiing, flying, …
Optimised for low battery usage, the app lets you:
▶ PLAN AHEAD: Check detailed weather conditions (emagram) over days for your safety, in Europe. Check surroundings and thermal hotspots on the topographic outdoor map.
▶ PLAN LANDING: Set a marker e.g. at the landing area and get assistance when approaching.
▶ TOUCH&GO: Turn on & Go fly! The cockpit shows real-time data after a short automatic instrument calibration.
▶ TAKE OFF: Automatic track recording is taking place in background and take-off altitude is referenced.
▶ STAY IN CONTROL: Control the behaviour, update rate, unit of the instruments, anytime and anywhere. Select a pre-defined setting profile matching thermal conditions.
▶ THERMALLING: Get acoustical and visual feedback of the encountered thermals and easily locate them when returning back.
▶ BE EFFICIENT: Track wind estimation, direction and force, to soar or prepare your landing.
▶ FIND LANDING: At e.g. a new site, locate the marked landing zone.
▶ REVIEW TRACK: Visualise the past track on 4 map styles or show the track elevation profile graph in animated or interactive mode.
▶ MANAGE LOGBOOK: Access each individual track record time stamped file, synchronise them with your iCloud. Personalise eVario to contain glider/user information.
▶ DO MORE: Re-Play your 3D flight e.g. in GoogleEarth, Analyse flight metrics in BaseCamp.

Thanks to your feedback, this version includes:
▶ Introduction of live tracking OGN/FLARM information/warning e.g. helicopter, (para)glider on map and related audio assistance
▶ Introduction of track metrics graph for analysis/review of track parameters altitude, speed and soaring lift
▶ Improvement of sensor robustness/stability
▶ Improved priorisation of audio assistance
▶ Implemented expansion/collapse symbol in settings menu
▶ Implemented location based track file names
▶ Update of onboard manual/measurements and gestures
Fixed an issue leading to line graph recording/display stop under certain conditions
Fixed minor issues related to language initialisation/usage under certain conditions
All onboard! No need for additional hardware; Sensibility/Response of built-in sensors (Bosch) is reliable for thermalling (preventing volatility)

Continued use of GPS and/or accelerometer running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. eVario was designed to use GPS very sparingly, but supports background usage for continued tracking. This was chosen wisely to maintain best experience. If you experience significant battery drain while using eVario, select the power save mode in the device's Settings menu or deactivate energy consuming instruments.
