I use LK version 3.1e on Holux 60CS with baro-altimeter.
QNH auto-calibration from terrain is working well, but doesn't work calibration from close "home airport" waypoint.

My question is: there is a way how to turn ON auto-calibration from "home airport" in paragliding mode?
I have in list of my waypoints starting places with correct altitude.
My idea was, that if I am close to "home airport" or other starting place (for example < 100m), the baro pressure will be set in order to match the home airport or near starting place.
Now is working only terrain calibration, but accuracy is often insufficient.
Thank you for answer.

I think, if I remember correctly, that for paragliders the home altitude for autocalibration is not used.
You are right concerning the "near waypoint" . I think it has to be fixed.

Thank you Coolwind for your answer, yes, I think too that this home altitude is not used for paraglider.
If will be working "near waypoint" it will be very useful for better calibration.
