The V2 Flight Instrument is a true sunlight readable LCD touchscreen PNA and is recommended to be used with LK8000 software available to download from http://lk8000.it/

The LCD screen is enhanced for clear visibility under direct sunlight, not only the brightness but also the screen contrast and anti-reflection properties of the V2 make this unit perfect for aviation use. Compared to other commercial PNAs, the difference is like night and day!

This unit has a mini USB RS232 serial line which can be connected to external instruments. A special cable is required to use this RS232 which can be purchased from http://www.glidertools.com/ or http://www.gliderguider.net/
.

Have a look at what the LK8000 team are writing about the V2:-

.

“We received the very first sample from Vertica a couple of months ago, and the device was simply stunning under the sun. As we all know, pilots want to be able to read the screen under all sun conditions: sun in the front, in the back , upside or aside. Results in the past were quite disappointing: there were devices perfectly readable under sunlight when it was perpendicular from the back, like old PDAs from HP, but then they became all black when the light was in front of you.”

Software should be installed on a micro SD card. Once loaded with software the unit is a remarkable tactical flight computer for all gliding pilots. The unit comes with a bracket and suction mount and can easily fit into all paraglider flight decks as well as gilder cockpits.

.

The V2 uses the powerful SiRF III GPS engine and is equipped with BlueTooth, it makes use of a 10 pin Mini USB port to allow the use of two serial ports. The V2 will connect to a PC with the newest ActiveSync version 4.5.
