Turn your Connect 1 into a P1

with No Comments

Every existing Connect 1 can be upgraded to a Volirium P1. The advantages are:

  1. Faster and more accurate positioning, thanks to the use of both GPS and GLONASS satellites
  2. More robust touch sensor (the ‚Äúwindow‚ÄĚ in front of the display)
  3. Improved sound volume
  4. A new color

The upgrade is currently offered by Volirium in Switzerland, by Vario-Service in Germany (for the whole EU) and by Flytec USA. We are working on getting our repair centres in Australia, Brazil and China up to speed as well. The pilot price for the update is CHF 222 in Switzerland. Check with the other repair centres for their local price.

We just released a new firmware version for the Volirium P1: Condor 17.2.4. The key features are:

  • Spanish translation
  • Flight log, including statistics page
  • Additionally, we improved the¬†XC distance calculation

After installing this version, on the next start, the P1 will go through all your existing flights and add them to the flight log. This happens in the background, the vario can be used normally during this operation. You receive a notification once it’s done.

For more information, see the the P1’s software release notes.
