This GPS script was published last year. A viewer requested that the script be updated to use an optional second GPS sensors. One on the aircraft and another in the transmitter. This allows a pilot who does cross country flying to have directions relative to their current position instead of relative to the flying field.

The script has also been updated to
- use optional altitude and speed sensors,
- use the smaller screen of the Taranis Q X7,
- draw arrows instead on using images which has resulted in fewer files,
- announce in german using the supplied files

Check out the blog post and video.

I appreciate the community support since I started flying in 2014. To give back I am making my scripts easily available for everyone to use.
