Just installed LK8000/Oudie in a friends glider. We connected it to his Swiss Flarm unit & it is receiving data OK - I get "FLARM DETECTED" and Barometric altitude and all the FLARM menus are active.

I can also get the Flarm to re-boot OK from the Flarm menu in LK8000, so I think that means communication is two-way.

However when I try to declare a task it fails with "Unknown Error".

I have configured:
Device A as the internal Oudie GPS (Com 1), Generic
Device B as the Flarm (Com 4, 19,200bps). Generic

Any ideas what is causing this ? do I need to have Flarm as Device A? Or could it mean that the Flarm is non-IGC ? ...... glider only just purchased with the Flarm already installed.

Any other ideas ?

As far as I know, non-IGC do not allow Task declarations.
IGC Flarm use to have "IGC approve" stickers on the housing.

You can also find out if it is a IGC Flarm by watching the serial monitor inside LK8000 device Dialog, restart flarm and look init checks written at the serial monitor.
Shuld somehow look like this (IGC + ENL):

Startup: After clean shutdown
o.k. 16 Mbit internal FLASH memory
o.k. ENL
o.k. Obstacles Init
o.k. Logging Init
o.k. UART
o.k. RF subsystem
o.k. Pressure sensor
