I have the same unit, purchased about 10 years ago through Weems & Plath in the U.S. W&P dropped the unit shortly thereafter, and the instructions I had referenced a German company as the OEM. I was not able to locate that company and assumed it had gone out of business. That was a shame as my unit promised a USB interface for NMEA
output with a later release of the firmware. Now, thanks to Monte, I discover it is really made by a French company and still is in business. I should have guessed that as the default language on initial power up is French.
This has been a very useful device, even though I've had to adjust the pressure tendency warnings to avoid them going off for normal diurnal pressure changes. Also changing batteries is a PITA, but it works fine off 12VDC.
I'm trying to find the VION company on the net, but all I get are the resellers, which don't provide a lot of info on the current
product. I'd like to find out if they ever implemented the USB NMEA
interface and if a firmware upgrade is available for my old instrument.
Anyone have a contact point for VION. On the net perferably so I could communicate in English
, as my French is pretty disfunctional.
