SOFTWARE

LK8000 is Free Software distributed under the  GNU GPL V2 license at no charge.

 

LK8000 can run on any device using Windows CE or Windows 32 (PC versions, such as XP, Vista, etc.). Almost every PNA (car navigator) on the market has Windows CE as internal operating system, with few exceptions: TomTom and Garmin for example have their own environment and cannot run LK.

 


LK comes in a package (a zip file) with everything you need to start it up fully functional with a demo map, waypoints and airspaces. Then you can of course customize it! All executables - programs - for different platforms are included.  You download one zip file for all platforms!

 




LK8000 version 5.0a

This is the latest official version, released on May, 30th 2014

Translated into 17 languages, already included: English, German, French, Czech, Polish, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Brasilian, Serbian, Croatian, Swedish, Hungarian, Greek, Russian, Vietnamese.

Note: some languages are partially mixed with english until new translations are completed.

FULL COMPLETE, NEW INSTALLATION

If you are installing from scratch, on a new device, use this version.

The archive is a ZIP file, ready to be extracted and used on an SD card, or on a flash disk, with no other special operation required (no CAB files, no setup). It comes preconfigured with a demo map, waypoints and airspaces, plug/play! You will find executables files for: PPC2002, PPC2003, PNA (Car navigators, but working also on Windows Mobile 6.x and most platforms), and PC.

On PC platforms, simply copy the LK8000 folder somewhere even on the desktop, enter LK8000 folder and run PC exe. LK will start up using demo configuration, ready to be evaluated.  Nothing else to download, nothing else to install. No Microsoft install procedure, no registry usage, and thus easy to remove.

The PC version will start in 800x480 mode, but you can create a link of it choosing the desired resolution following instructions HERE or you can change the resolution with a menu button later, see the manual .

 

UPGRADE FROM 4.0  to new 5.0A

You must have a 4.0 (A or B) already installed to use this package! This is not a standalone version and cannot be used alone.  If you are upgrading from 3.0 or earlier, use full install.

The archive is a ZIP file, ready to be extracted and used on an SD card, or on a flash disk, with no other special operation required (no CAB files, no setup). Unzip replacing old contents. Be careful to use all files contained in the zip, not only the executables!!

You will find executables files for: PPC2002, PPC2003, PNA (Car navigators, but working also on Windows Mobile 6.x and most platforms), and PC.



5.0A COMPETITION VERSION

Executables only! Require LK 5.0 already installed.

If you are using 4.0 please FIRST UPGRADE to 5.0A, and then download and use these executables!

The Competition version has no TRI (Turn Rate Indicator) which is forbidden by FAI rules, and in the US competitions.


 


IGC LOG PLUG-IN for Paragliders

Some paragliding online competitions require a special "plug-in" module to be installed in order to accept LK8000' log files.

XCBrasil, FAI/CIVL WXC, XC UK and other competitions requiring approval by FAI/CIVL require the plugin.

OLC, XContest, DHV do not need the plugin, among many others. If in doubt, ask the organizations.

This package works only with 5.0A and 4.0 (A or B) version for PNA devices. Follow instructions that are inside the zip.

If you need support, please ask on the forum.


Validation plugin released  May 30th 2014. Applies only to v5.0A and v4.0 (A and B). It will not work with any other version.

 


Language Pack Upgrade for LK8000


Language Pack is not available for v5.0 because all files are already part of the distribution and there is no need to upgrade.

The Language Pack is a ZIP file containing language upgrade. Unzip and copy all files inside _Language directory, replacing old contents.
