    Downsizing as a student

    Nobody reading this thread has seen you jump or land a canopy. Your instructor has. I suggest you follow your instructor's recommendation.

    Altitrack issue

    My Altitrack has started behaving erratically. The battery is fine so it's not that. The digital readouts on the back are OK, but the analog needle on the face goes (consistently) to the wrong place, about 4,700ft, when I turn the unit on. If I remove and replace the battery, the needle ends up consistently around 16,000ft. If I reset the unit the needle goes all the way around the face and ends up consistenly in the wrong place. I have discovered that the following sequence gets the needle to the zero: reset, turn the unit off, turn it on again. It then stays correct for the rest of the day, but after it shuts down, the next morning when I turn it on the needle goes back to 4,700ft ????? ...

    Android question

    Android question

    Some devices use 000000 as the default. It's always worth a shot. It specifies the PIN to enter, different on each attempt. But I can try 000000, can't hurt. EDIT: That didn't work either. ... The only sure way to survive a canopy collision is not to have one.
