A few months ago, I started myself a discussion about the way SD establishes a connection to airconnect/PowerFLARM.
I have not payed any attention on this feature then, but I remember that at least one update for SD was advertised with an imporved stability for 3rd party devices.

Lately , I wanted to give the couple of SD/airconnect and PowerFLARM another try, but now it completely fails.
These are my symptoms:
- Shortly after powering on the PowerFLARM and when it has found GPS satellites, my iPad automatically connects to a WLAN named *GSX28 ( note the "28"!)
- no password needed, the WLAN simply connects
- After starting SD and trying to "Fly - Use FLARM",  I get a message that a connection could not be established. Hmm, why that? It worked before
- Examining the settings for the Flarm/airconnect, I see, that there is a key "1234" - definitely not the real world key
- From the dealer of the airconnect, I got the information that you sholud add 3642 to the number of the WLAN (remember 28!) to get the key or simply use a key > 5001 for newer devices.
- Nothing worked. I still get the message that a connection could not be established with "3670" as a key and "key rejected" (or similar) for a key >5001 (like 5022).
Is this a known issue with a newer version of SD? Are there other settings?

The key you require should be printed on the air connect device installed in the aircraft

Correct! The simple porblem is, the airconnect is hidden behind the panel. So, the access to inspect the sticker is not easy nd we don't have a photo.
At the moment I have 2 different behaviours:
1. Using "1234" or "3670" both give the message that the connection failed
2. Using "5022" (which came from a friend) brings the message "key rejected"

Any other ideas?

Endoscope? Should be able to get one on amazon for less than 50 quid.

You need to enter the correct key for your device. The key is printed on its side.
