Flight data evaluation
There are a number of programmes and online tools that allow you to manage, view and analyse your flights. In order to use any of the below services you need access to the IGC files on your flight instrument. The Connect 1 also produces Google Earth files (KMZ). Learn how to get the IGC and KMZ files off your Connect 1 or your Element.
