Is there any information about the use of a GT altimeter together with the 61CS?
Has someone already tried this combination in a glider?
What about sensitivity, accuracy, etc.?

new version of document mentioned in my reply posted - 10/06/2012 : 20:44:30 ... final version of "light holder" http://www.wolf-gear.com/images/stories/61cs/gpsmile61cs_light_holder_mk2.pdf

for the inner you have a M3 thread.
Outer diameter bottom 4.3mm top 4.8mm
The pin layout if you look to the 61cs with display up are:
The mini USB wires:
green to RXD
white to TXD
red to DCIN
black to GND

You did a great job!
Can you give information about the inner and outer diameter of these threads and maybe a wiring diagram of the pogo-connector and the female mini-USB connector? (please specify front and back row)

Many thanks Mazuk!

No you can just screw the thread inserts:

Great, but how do you hold the thread-inserts-piece to the 61CS holes? Glue?
||Posted - 13/06/2012 : 16:25:27
Yes the holes are the same just inserted threads. (don't know the english word for this may be thread inserts )
No need for drilling. And as you can see I left one insert more out to prevent a rotation of the adapter !

Hi Mazuk, nice work!
Tell me, are the holes (were the cradle fits) meant to take screws like that?

So my setup is ready now.
No more bulcky cradle :-)
Here the 61cs with the GT-Altimeter attached to my tiny adapter. It is working perfectly now.

found an other source of the pogo connector.
Price is about 5€ 6x2 connector
main catalog : http://docs-europe.electrocomponents.com/webdocs/0e31/0900766b80e31ede.pdf
I ordered some to make a tiny adapter
Here a picture of the pogo connector

If the connector's wires also include the pins for GPIO 1-4 , I promise I will add support for them as hardware custom keys: customkeys bottom left, bottom center, bottomright and bottom icon will also be mapped to gpio 1-4 (hardware buttons), to allow remote controls or keypad.
I already tested this solution, and personally I already bought all the necessary hardware to do it. I missed only the cannibalized cradle specs.

Simple, functional, and practical solutions ...

Here is link to *.pdf document, where is described, how to modify original Holux cradle for something more light and suitable for para/hang gliders pilots especially:http://www.wolf-gear.com/images/stories/61cs/gpsmile61cs_light_holder_mk2.pdf.
GPSmile61CS versions Free Flying (FF001) and XC001 will be equipped with this "light holder".
Complete unit with holder should be fixed by Velcro, glued on unit backside.

Okay, thanks for the info!
