This small cost-effective Altimeter unit uses the Bosch Sensortec pressure sensor, which is small and very cost effective. It is less accurate with regards to VARIO than our "accurate vario" - but also slightly faster. Accuracy is 20cm instead of 10cm.
This unit is highly recommended if you really mostly want the ALTITUDE, and not as much the VARIO function for thermal gliders. VARIO readout is still included to register rate of descent etc.
The unit fully supports the SBUS2 telemetry system.
