I am selling a modified (second hand) Kobo ereader with a GPS/vario module. The kobo is second hand (mint screen) used only as an ereader, the GPS/vario module is brand new.
It is a great alternative to expensive dedicated instruments.

The build is robust and nice with a protective plastic shell (3D printing) for the GPS/vario module.
On the backside, there is a "scratch" to fix it on the cockpit and a security line.

Equiped with XCSOAR, it is a full flying instrument suitable for paragliding, hangliding and sailplane.
The sofware is installed with French maps but I can surely install the map suitable for your country if
it is available. You can also add the flight maps with restricted flying area (already installed for France).
XCSOAR provides you with plenty of flying parameters : ground speed, wind speed and direction, location
of the last thermal, as well as more advanced functions like the McReady.

The sound of the vario can be disabled (but XCsoar still get the altitude information from the vario).

The recording of GPS tracks is available. You can also enter turnpoints and full competition tasks.

Compared to the use of XCSOAR on a smartphone, the Kobo E-reader has a perfect readability even in direct sunlight and a much longer autonomy.

The ereader function is still available with a simple reboot of the kobo.
