    In the thesis we researched how to develop a modern navigational instrument for gliders with touch screen interface. We have studied what kind of technology and touch screens are available to build such a device. First we checked what kind of data is necessary for a pilot to perform save and pleasant flight. We researched how this data should be displayed. We checked what are critical hardware components. On selected hardware we have build a whole system. We analysed which operating system is suitable and how to implement most important software features for navigational instrument. But even device with the best hardware is not worth anything if we don’t have good graphical user interface. In the last part we examined how we can effectively display measured and calculated values on touch screen. We reviewed graphical user interfaces used on modern avionics and every day mobile devices with touch screens. We combined this knowledge to create our own graphical user interface.
