Once a task is declared in Navigator, you may want to modify it somewhat. Reasons for modifying a task vary from changing cylinder radius in Race to Goal tasks, changing the Start Gate Time, changing the sequence of Turnpoints, or fixing a wrong entry.
To modify a task you must explicitly choose the “Edit task” mode on the Menu > Task screen. It is intentionally difficult to modify a task in order to prevent inadvertent changes by mistake.
Change task type
Task type defines how the interface will behave before the start and when waypoints are reached. Three task types are supported at the moment:
Each type of task behaves differently before the start, on task, and when reaching waypoints. It is therefore recommended to choose the right type before takeoff. You may also change the task type in-flight without any consequence.
Change task parameters
Depending on which task type is selected, different task parameters are available such as Start Gate Time, etc. You can change any of these parameters through Menu > Task > Edit task.
Change Start Speed Section, End Speed Section or Remove turnpoint
By default, the second task turnpoint is automatically declared as Start Speed Section (SSS) and the penultimate point as the End Speed Section (ESS).
If however needed you can change SSS, ESS or remove one of the turnpoints by the following steps:
- Go to Menu > Task > Edit task
- Swipe left the turnpoint you want to set for SSS, ESS or Remove
- Select desired action
- Once done
Add a Turnpoint
- Menu > Task > Edit task
- Press the “Add Waypoint” button
- Type the name of the turnpoint you want to add
- Choose observation zone shape and radius
That’s it. A turnpoint is added. You may add any number of turnpoints this way.
To reorder the turnpoints, tap and hold on to the turnpoint you want to move up or down. Then move the turnpoint up and down and drop it where you need it.
