1       Introduction 

Replay 

This module will cover how you can download, upload and view a previous flight. 

We estimate that this will take 2 minutes to complete.

Replay Overview

The replay functionality within N-Tracking allows you to download and replay a flight. You can save the flight locally, gaining access to the event log, replay the flight or simply upload a flight to the "Cloud". The replay function is split into two separate sections "Search" and "Archives". For each of these you can download or replay a selected flight.
