Connecting to the GPS source

There are three basic ways to connect Oudie to the GPS source:

1. Built-in GPS

2. Serial cable connection to external GPS source

3. Bluetooth

You can choose which option you would like to use through Menu > Settings > Input dialog in SeeYou Mobile:

1. Built-in GPS

The built-in GPS in Oudie is always on COM 1 > 4800bps. You can setup the Oudie to use internal GPS by selecting Menu > Settings > Input > Internal GPS

2. Serial cable connection to external GPS source

The supplied Serial data cable enables you to connect to external data source such as your Variometer, Flight data recorder, anti-collision device or similar. You should select Menu > Setting > Input > Serial cable in order to use this option. You will need the manual from the other device in order to determine the correct Port Settings such as Baud rate. You should always use COM 4 on Oudie for this type of connection.

The supplied Data/Power cable has a RJ45 connector by default with standard IGC pinout. Several converters are included in the box which enable you to connect to flight recorders with RJ12 or DB9 connectors. Special cables are also available as an accessory for a very simple direct connection to some specific flight recorders such as LX 7007, CAI 302, LX 1600 etc. Please refer to the chapter Cables and Converters of this manual to learn more about how to connect your Oudie with different GPS devices.

It is very important to understand that the supplied Serial cable must be connected to 12 V direct current source (such as your glider’s battery) in order to work.

3. Bluetooth

Another way to receive external data source is to connect through Bluetooth. Go to Menu > Settings > Input > Bluetooth to pair Bluetooth device with Oudie:

1. press Lookup on Oudie (only devices which advertize SPP protocol are displayed)

2. Select the device you would like to connect to

3. Press “Pair…”

4. enter the PIN of the device you are connecting to

5. connection should be established on COM 5 (make sure the Baude rate is correct)

You should refer to the manual of the other device in order to find out about its settings such as Pairing key, baud rate, availability of the serial communication protocols etc. Once the devices are paired and serial communication is established the data flow starts immediately.

K6 Bluetooth is a special protocol which should be used when connecting to the K6 Bluetooth device because it enables even more features than the standard Bluetooth protocol.
