Hi all. Sorry if this has been asked.. a search didn't turn up any results.

‌‌I use SkyDemon and an iPad Pro in the cockpit, connected via wifi to PilotAware. Both fantastic products.

Currently, I just update SD before I head out to the aircraft so live data is then turned off to avoid the nagging connection issues. But what I would like to do is drop a sim card into my iPad and actually use live data while in flight.

So the question is, does anyone have experience with this setup? Can the iPad gather live data via GPRS while connected by wifi to the Pilotaware? Or will it be trying to get data ONLY from the wifi connection and therefore report no connection?

T‌‌hanks in advance.

Hi Bonehead,

I usually fly with PAW connected to SD via WiFi and have a SIM card in my iPad Pro. I get updates of weather and notam in the air without any nagging on the screen. Much to my surprise last year SD reported a metar and taf update while I was flying 6,000 ft AGL.

Look for "Speedify" it uses GSM & Wifi at the same time.
