Flymaster GPS SD+ plus


Flymaster GPS SD+ Engineered for Easy Navigation and Safety

The GPS SD+ is the ultimate Flymaster flight instrument for pilots wanting to fly XC and have the proven live tracking functions of the renowned LIVE SD.

Safe XC-flying

XC flying is rewarding, yet landing out alone can be scary the LiveTracking system you will never be alone on your XC adventure. Flymaster LiveTracking technology is the standard for the Paragliding World Cup and the Red Bull X-Alps. With the GPS SD+, you can be part of the well known FLYMASTER LIVE-TRACKING NAVIGATION SYSTEM (Patent Pending) proven in several competitions, like the Red Bull X-Alps, or PWCA.

This innovative system enables real-time flight monitoring - live-tracking – over Google Earth, enhancing sharing of flights and contributing significantly to improve flight safety.

Safety can even be augmented by configuring the GPS SD+ to periodically send an SMS with information like position, altitude, or speed to a defined recipient.

Don't get caught in airspace

With Flymasters 3D airspace warning system you will have ample information to navigate around restricted airspace zones. The Flymaster 3D airspace avoidance system provides tools to manage airspaces. Restricted areas can be seen in an embedded Map, or on a dedicated page. The Map can be complemented with numerical, and text information using data fields. The Critical Airspaces dedicated page can be used to see detailed information about areas that are close to the pilot.

In addition to graphic information, audible alarms and page triggers will ensure that even the most inattentive pilots do not miss critical information. For example, when flying near a restricted area, an alarm is issued and the airspace page automatically enabled.

Taking advantage of the SD card storage capacity the instrument provides worldwide airspace data (more info). The pilot can fly from country to country without any concerns about changing airspace data files. Now including SD card with world Maps pre loaded

Know Where You Are

Flymaster SD series instruments have amazing worldwide road maps. Plan your flight and you'll never get lost.

Design your own instrument

Need more or less data on your flight screens, with Flymasters' unique Designer you can create the instrument you like and need for your style of flying. Taking advantage of the Flymaster GPS SD+ graphic processor, which also allows gray scales and increased definition graphics, pilots can customize their own multiple screen pages using the new Flymaster Designer.

Using the designer users can add, resize or move objects, and increase the font size of text, allowing users of any age (and eye-sight quality) to get the most out of their unit.

The Flymaster Designer is a free application allowing users to design and manage, the screen layout of Flymaster instruments, and update the firmware. An unlimited number of layouts can be created, and shared with other users.

Thermal efficiently

Flymasters' unique thermal ball will help you find the thermal core quicker and the zero buzzer make sure don't fly past lift. The Thermal Core Map is one of the most useful, and exclusive feature of the GPS SD+. This map corresponds to a black dot which is shown inside the inner navigation wheel. During a thermal climb, the GPS SD+ keeps track of the strongest climb values and graphically represent the strongest one by a dot. The pilot can then search for a new core and if needed return to the last one by following the dot.

Another well-known feature is the Buzzer Sound which is produced when the rate of climb is close to but has not yet reached the specified Climb threshold. Since the Buzzer starts earlier than the normal vario sound is an amazing companion in flight allowing the pilot to pick-up thermals he would have usually missed.


Flight-Sharing can be extended beyond the LIVE-TRACKING. Just with a few key strokes, you can send your flights, just after landing, to several well know databases like Leonardo, or DHV.


The GPS SD+ has a built in low power wireless interface for connecting compatible accessories. The list of Flymaster wireless accessories is the most complete on the market. Already available for the GPS SD+ are the HEART-G, TAS, and M1.

The Flymaster GPS SD+ implements an easy intuitive menu driven system with no need to memorise multiple functions on keys with long key presses.
