Gentlemen,
I am using SkyDemon on my Android phone for VFR flying and it works perfectly. It doesn't mind connecting to the internet during a flight.

However, when I use SkyDemon at home on my Windows PC with X-Plane as the source of navigation, it will not download charts or upload the weather during a flight which is very annoying. I'm sure there must be a setting somewhere to let it download during the "flight". Could someone help me with this?

A secondary issue, the sound alarms are very annoying when "flying" on X-Plane, as they are very loud and most of the times I don't care about them anyway. I can't seem to tune which alerts I want and which I don't, I had to revert to muting the entire application on the Windows volume mixer. Is there any other way around this?

Kind regards,
Jaime

The trouble is, SkyDemon Plan isn't really designed for navigation so it doesn't have the options you're looking for.

There's a workaround, though: set up the options the way you want them on your Android device, then save them to the cloud. Then load them from the cloud on your PC and those options should be set for you.

Thank you Tim,
I will try this now!
