Hi all
I have the Air Avionics AT-1 installed and using it at GPS / Traffic information source on my Huawei Pad with Skydemon.
From time to time the connection stops and I must initiate the connection again from Skydemon side.
I don't know if it is a tablet, a Skydemon or AT-1 issue which stops the connection.
Did anyone have the same problems?
What tablet do you use? Do you have a work-around?
As said, I am not sure if it is a Skydemon issue, but maybe the best place (forum) to start to find the issue.
Best regards,
Alain

What exactly happens when "the connection stops"? SkyDemon is designed to automatically reconnect (and keep trying) if your device stops responding.

Alain,

have the same issue with the iPad. Seems this comes from AT-1, which occasionally has probs to provide a stable WiFi. I am presently investigating with AirTraffic company, as soon as I have a solution, I will post it here.
My wild guess: Firmware update of AT-1...
Cheers
Peter

After some (friendly!) discussion with Air Avionics I followed their recommendation to set AT-1 WiFi protocol on FLARM Connect and SD third party device to be used in Flying Mode also to FLARM Connect with the KEY of 6001 or higher - since then I observed significant improvement with this issue.

On my last flight on November 15th, 2020 I had the same problem with AT-1 and SD, the following message appeared on the Ipad display.

The Flarm protocol was set as the connection

Interesting. That device appears to be sending invalid data through the PGRMZ message, and our parser is detecting that. We do not actually use that message currently, so we will ignore it in the next version of SkyDemon and this problem will go away.
