Connect 1 Basics/en
Getting started with your Connect 1
Switching on and off
Switch the Connect 1 on by pressing the red or green button at the top of the instrument. To switch off, press and hold the same button. "Shutdown" appears on your screen, tap on it to confirm shut down of the vario.
Your Connect 1 comes with a micro-USB wall charger, which you can simply plug in to the connector on the bottom of your vario. We recommend using the Flytec charger, as your instrument will charge faster with it compared to other chargers or to a USB cable connected to a computer.
Touch screen and keys
The Connect 1 is operated similarly to a smartphone: a combination of touch screen and minimal keys. Both touch screen and keys are optimised for use with and without gloves. On the touch screen practically every section either triggers a reaction or reveals further information, when tapped. Particularly on the flight screen, every indicator can be configured by tapping on it.
Each key of the Connect 1 serves a double function:
- Press the keys briefly to access the functions in white. These functions are: minus, return, plus
- Hold the keys down to access the functions under the line in black. These functions are: short cut access to audio volume, home screen, status info of your vario.
For take off you might wish to lock the screen, which is done by simultaneously pressing the <- and + keys. A locked screen is symbolised by a lock in the status bar. In flight, the screen lock can be released by pressing any key.
