Requirements

To be able to uses the files provided by Discovering Eagle you need to have a
working installation of SkyDemon on Android, iOS or Windows PC and a valid
subscription.

We develop our files with the newest version of SkyDemon at that given time.
Even though SkyDemon claims backwards compatibility for cutom data, we can’t
garantee it.

Cost

Everything on this website is free! Nevertheless I would appreciate if you donate a little via the support page. I do put a lot of work in these downloads and with every donation you help me coming closer to the ultimate goal: Flying around Africa!

Installing

  1. Unzip the contents of the downloaded archive to your SkyDemon’s CustomData folder. On Windows computers you will usually find this at C:Users< username >DocumentsSkyDemonCustomData. On Android you will find it under < Internal storage >/SkyDemon/CustomData.
  2. After unzipping you should find the following files:
    • README.md (you can delete this one afterwards)
    • LICENSE.md
    • Chilhowee92aGliderTurnpoints_DDMMMYYYY.vrps.csv
    • Chilhowee92aGliderTurnpoints.png (you can delete this one afterwards)
  3. Now startup SkyDemon. If it has been running close and restart it.
  4. Turn on Mapping > Waypoints > Show Glider Waypoints and navigate to Chilhowee Gliderport (92A).

You should see multiple waypoints with a blue dot icon have appeared.

It didn’t work

Make sure, Glider Waypoints are turned on as described above. Zoom in closer to
prevent the waypoints been hidden by SkyDemons automatic decluttering feature.
You can check your settings while zooming in to Chilhowee Gliderport (92A) and
compare to the screenshot included in the archive.

If you still do not get any waypoints, check if you extracted the archive into
your SkyDemons CustomData folder without any subfolder. Make sure, you did not
change any filename. If you need to correct something here, restart SkyDemon
afterwarts.
