    11 things about theVariometer

    1. Usage - without - an internal or external sensor is possible, but subject to known the limitations of a pure GPS operation, such as using only open-air, a good GPS signal and altitude changes > 5m with at least 1-2 m/s.

    2. The app reacts a little somewhat slower, as e.g. a Bräuninger- or Flytec Vario, if you use the internal pressure sensor of the iPhone, because the sensor doesn't provide data as often as an external sensor.

    3. The app requires a good GPS signal, if no internal or external pressure sensor can be used.

    4. In conjunction with an external sensor such as ASI FlyNet2, FlyTec SenseBox or the XC-TRacer, the app provides even more precise climb- and sink-rates.

    5. Since version 3.0 the app supports iOS9, as well as the pressure sensor of your iPhone 6(s) or iPhone 6(s) Plus.

    6. This nice little tool - a must have for every paraglider pilot - emulates a variometer on your iPhone.

    7. Therefore your iPhone is a complete replacement for a "real" variometer.

    8. The current climb- or sink-rate is signaled via different "beep" sounds, as usual for a variometer.

    9. You can watch your flight using the integrated map view in real time, so you will never loose your orientation.

    10. By typing to „Alt 3“ - usually after the adjusting phase - or any time later you can reset „Alt 3“ to „0“.

    11. Please make sure in any case, that you have a good GPS signal, if you use the app.

    theVariometer Reviews

    • Save your money

      App does not work as described. Wasted $5. Does not work as a vario at all. Some settings are totally inoperable.

    • Need improvements

      I had high hopes for this app to use as a backup vario in my sailplane. Granted it will not be compensated and less accurate than pressure based but should still be helpful in case of dead vario. But I found it not very usable from the following reasons: 1- as soon as I get high enough and outside cell coverage it keeps complaining with error messages and freezes. Not having cell coverage is common 90% of the time where I fly and there is no need for cell coverage just for the vario functionality. 2- audio beeps are very unintuitive. The rate of the beeps should increase, not just the pitch, like any normal vario. 3- it is not clear what is the purpose of the secondary vario scale. Surely the needle should not move down to the center if the rate of climb exceeds 5 m/s! 4- the app should not allow the Android to auto lock ! 5 - feet per second is not a common non metric unit. The scale should be in knots! 6- digital rate of climb should be 20 sec average not instantaneous especially since GPS altitude is not smooth. Please fix all these and ill be happy to give a better review and recommend it to the whole gliding community.

    • Some what ok

      It's a nice toy. Ok to register your flights and then see it in a map. Latly very much problems with accuracy in altitude. It showed 1400m when i was at 1200m AMSL. Registers movements in altitude even when I am stand still with my glider waiting to take off.

    • Excellent

      Very accurate, quick, precise. Love it. Can't beat the price.
