Syride Sys’Nav XL is now compatible with ActiveLook-connected glasses, creating a first-of-its-kind hands-free, heads-up display for paragliders.
This innovative technology allows pilots to connect their ActiveLook smartglasses to the SYS'Nav XL instrument, and display data directly on the lenses.
The SYS'Nav XL vario-GPS, launched last year, is a versatile flight instrument designed for paragliding and PPG pilots, and can be used by beginners, leisure users, hike’n’fly users, competitors, and XC pilots.
With the ActiveLook technology, pilots can now have access to important flight data, such as altitude, speed, and variometer, directly in their field of view, eliminating the need to constantly look down at a separate screen, and allowing pilots to stay focused on the task at hand.
It’s also an additional screen for pilots who want to display more information: the HUD can reveal the most important data and, thanks to the customizable display of the Sys’Nav XL, pilots can display less-frequently used data on the instrument itself.
Currently, the smartglasses can display variometer, altitude and speed, but Syride will allow the pilot choose the data they want to display in a future update of the app.
Pilot Antoine Girard shares his feedback:
“The glasses coupled with the Sys'nav XL bring significant advantages in terms of safety and comfort. They provide a second screen to the instrument which doubles the amount of flight information available at any time. It is no longer necessary to shift or limit your field of vision to look at information on your instrument; it is now possible to do so while keeping visual control of what is happening around you. This means more security around obstacles or in a cluster of pilots.”
