Get Connected!

Version 7.0 is bringing enhanced connectivity, more supported services, 3rd party devices and many new features. We improved the graphics on the V8/V80 varios as well, where you can now have a new NON-LINEAR scale, different needle styles and updated graphics with clearer readings. There are also some user friendly improvements (new MC/BALL/BUGS dialog) and minor bug fixes. Upgrade for free.

LXNAV CONNECT

We developed our own cloud called LXNAV Connect where you get all weather services, storage services and automatic updates from LXNAV server and SoaringSpot. Supported weather services are: TopMeteo, SkySight, Rain Radar and Satellite pictures! There are also other services like US Sectional Charts, High resolution terrain maps, GPS Aero data, SeeYou Cloud, SoaringSpot integration, Dropbox and Google Drive. You can also switch on automatic profile syncing from your device with your LXNAV Connect storage.

Profile sync

Profile sync will allow you to have one single profile synced across various applications. You can edit your profile on LXStyler and when you turn on the LX80/90xx device, it will be automatically synced with your latest profile saved on your LXNAV Connect storage service.
