I am in the Colonies - The USA.
My questions are:
1 - How much data space is required for SkyDeamond (SD)?
I ask this as I am currently using an iPad Air and running ForeFlight (FF). Yes, I do understand space is defined by how many charts/areas you want to download currently I have FF and 17 states.
2 - Charts - Are the charts Certified to b used by the FAA for fight?
Example - FF is totally acceptable to be used in place of paper charts. Matter of fact, here in the Colonies, it is very difficult to find an FBO that sells paper charts.
3 - WX - How is WX obtained?
I do have ADSB Out via the Xponder (Stratus ESG Out) and I SOMETIMES receive WX via a Raspberry Pi (RPi) running STRTUX which transmits to the iPad. BUT! WX has been unreliable - Either because I have been flying on Severe Clear days or ???
4 - WX - Keeping on the WX topic. How is WX received when On The Ground? My RPi and STRATUX is only receiving when airborne and when above 2500 Ft.
5 - Additional Equipment - Other than an iPad and SD, what additional equipment is required?
6 - SD - With FF I am running ONLY the BASIC subscription and it does very well for me. What are the different levels of SD and what do they offer?
Yes, I will research the SD website. Just looking for a Heads Up!
OK, that is all I can think of at this time. Thank you for your assistance and input.
