I assume you mean both Dynon and PilotAware. No, we have no current plans to allow selection of two devices. Is it really that much of a problem to find the one you want to use?

Thanks Tim. Its not a one-off, it's every trip.... So, yes, a problem.
As SD is such a great planning tool, I obviously use it to plan my route then, before flight, I want to send to the Dynon so I can use its functionality and thence, e.g., to drive autopilot (bullet 1 of my op). However, in flight, I want to see traffic, via PilotAware, on my iPad running SD (bullet 2 on my op). Hence, to accomplish this requires all the faffing referred to in my original post. I accept the need to switch SSIDs- that's outside of your control- but if you could eliminate the need for multiple changes of settings within SD, each time, between SV and PAW, that would help immensely.

Delighted this has been incorporated in latest release. Thanks Guys.

Is it likely that after I have bought an updated UAvionix Sky Echo 2 and subscribed to Flarm with Sky Demon and displayed on my android pad, that I will be able to blue tooth appropriate information for display on an HUD? For cars various types of HUD are available for about £45 and would appear also suitable for aircraft. If not now is this something Sky Demon is considering developing?

Unluckily, over than the SD software connection, HUD systems does have another (much more important) problem: to be useful, the data should be visible with focus set to infinite. Just reflecting the data on a screen force the sight to focus at a shorter distance, loosing focus outside. Military (and the few civil) HUD does have a quite bulky optical systems to obtain this. There is no way to replace them with some kind of electronics, so an acceptable sized (and cost-effective) device for the vast majority of the SD users is now very hard to have.  See picture below about an effective HUD system.
