Maps -- Polars -- Waypoints 

Sources: XCSoar, Lynn Alley's site, Turnpoint Exchange, Condor landscapes .cup files. 

In real flight or in Condor, you need to fly with a device to show your height-above-glide to nearby airports and to explore routes as you fly.  The Condor PDA is pretty limited.

Download a complete XCSoar files folder  dated Jan 2024 that has polars, our maps and waypoints in it, as well as a working settings file (default.prf).  Then extract with 7-zip and you can choose files or replace the XCSoar files on your device with this and you will have everything.  Click on the Download symbol on the upper right.  On Android devices the files folder is usually internalStorage>Android>data>org.xcsoar>files 

XCSoar or Top Hat

We recommend the free XCSoar or Top Hat for Android, Windows, Windows Mobile, Linux, MacOS.  Top Hat is a variant of XCSoar and they use the same files.  Download from your app store (tablet or phone) or from their website (computers).  

You need to link your device to Condor via WiFi or via Bluetooth so it sends the GPS for your track to XCSoar.  It's not hard.


For an XCSoar map to match a Condor landscape, see Condor Club Goodies . Just type in the landscape name. To make your own map use  XCSoar's map generator.

This next year for the safari from Norway to Greece we will probably use 9 landscapes.  If you want one XCSoar map for it all, download the folder in the next paragraph and extract, and put "Europe central east.xcm" into your XCSoarData folder, and use Europe.cup for airports and landing fields.

You can download custom map areas from XCSoar's map generator.

Glider polars are found at condorutill 


Starting XCSoar or Top Hat before you fly (WiFi)

Selecting the navigation files for a flight

Choosing a destination


You need these to select a glider so the flight computer knows the drag.  The -FXB polars are with full ballast.  

To install, simply copy the .xcp files into folder xcsoardata/polars.  You may have to create the folder. 

For SeeYou Mobile, open the XCSoar polar with a text editor and you should have all the info you need to create a SeeYouMobile polar on your device
