In Download-only mode all logger settings are read-only (see Modes of operation).
LoggerThe FRDL Id is the unique identifier FRDL gives to a logger the first time it is connected to FRDL. It is never editable.
The correct type of logger MUST be selected as the data retrieved from it may otherwise not be processed correctly.
The CIMA approval status of each type of logger is displayed. Approved loggers MUST be used in FAI championships unless CIMA has specifically issued an exemption, (possibly with conditions) for a unapproved logger type to be used in that championship.
PilotThese fields must all be filled in correctly as they are used to generate the correct .igc output file according to the CIMA Specification.
Name: The usual protocol is to use the same name as used in the analysis and scoring systems which should be in the format Given Name (lower case) FAMILY NAME (upper case). Accented characters should NOT be used, but be replaced with their non-accented equivalent.
Nation: The usual protocol is to use the FAI three letter code. (FAI uses the Olympic system which is slightly different to the ISO system, eg ISO - DEU = FAI - GER).
Competition number: The competition number of the pilot. Must be less than 999 to meet the CIMA Specification.
Primary secondary Etc.: Pilots often carry more than one logger on a competition flight. This identifies which logger this one is. The normal convention is that only the data from the pilot's primary logger is used in analysis unless there was some sort of technical fault in which case the secondary data is used.
SaveSaves the information to the Championship configuration file and the configuration file on the logger.
