Now that the CAA are offering a rebate to purchasers of SkyEcho 2, I anticipate that the uptake of SkyEcho 2 will increase significantly and many of those purchasers are likely to be flying club aircraft.
Whilst it is not difficult to change the aircraft's hex code in SkyEcho when swapping from one aircraft to another, it is a bit fiddly and after a while, if it has to be done on a regular basis, is likely to regarded as a bit of a nuisance and may result in users leaving the hex code blank and disabling 'ADS-B Out' resulting in the loss of 50% of SkyEcho's functionality.
Now since SD aircraft profiles already include the aircraft's hex code, I was wondering if it would be possible for SD to 'push' the aircraft's hex code to SkyEcho at the time of connection. It may require a measure of co-operation from uAvionix, but would be a feature welcomed by many current and future users I'm sure.
