Does the OpenVario kit includes a touchscreen?

No, we don´t offer our OpenVario glide computers with touchscreen displays. There are two reasons:

  1. Declined clearness of display: Resistive touchscreens are only 80% translucent and they add a second surface for reflections. So the optical performance in direct sunlight would decrease a lot.
  2. Bad operability in turbulent air: OpenVario is designed to mount in the instrument panel and not like other mobile devices (Smartphone, PNA, PDA) on the canopy frame next to the pilot. Thereby we have a longer lever arm and in turbulent air it is noticeable more difficult to hit the right button on the touchscreen.
