GiPSy Flight Manager

GiPSy Flight Manager is an extension for FireFox web browser that provides:

  • downloading flight tracklogs from your GPS instrument and creating IGC in a very easy and intuitive way
  • well arranged and usable logbook of all your flights
  • route optimization - you can compute the best route that you will be scored in XContest even when you are not connected to the internet (see description of advanced features on how to configure it)

GiPSy is closely integrated with the XContest system. GiPSy currently runs on  Windows,   Linux OS (x86) and Mac OSX (both Intel and PowerPC platforms).

GiPSy supports these GPS units:

  • Garmin
  • Aircotec
  • MLR/Digifly/CoMo
  • Brauniger Compeo/Competino, Flytec 5020/5030
  • Flymaster

GiPSy speaks to you in English, Czech, German (thanks to Anton Holly), French (thanks to Dominik Mauchle), Hungarian (thanks to Benedek Bence), Polish (thanks to Marcin Skowron), Italian (thanks to Bruno Brugnolo) and Romanian (Daniel Pop).
