Navigation is working for me on 2.4.3. I have an external GPS (not an Apple-approved - I use RoqyBT4 on a jailbroken iPad to use a GlobalSat GPS). I don't know if this makes a difference.

But I do have the problem with opening a log file from a previous flight - the app crashes. I also experiences freezes on the splash screen, and I have to close SkyDemon and try again.

Well, one sure way to test map and compass skills today was to upgrade to iOS6 and latest Skydemon and jump in the aircraft with a Pax.

Asked them to hold the iPad and uttered the immortal phrase - "yes, it will say seeking satellites for a while - don't worry about that. We don't really need it, we have the chart and compass and the vis is reasonable today."

After 45 mins of flight through a few light showers and a wet landing at Compton Abbas, he commented that "the satellites must be pretty lost, if we're still seeking them!"

Would be grateful for the ability to retro-grade via iPad - could have reverted to previous version if available whilst sat having a very nice sausage and chips lunch. Still, practice with the eyeball was worth it.

I never sync using iTunes so as far as I can see, there is no way of reverting to the previous version. This is where Apple's model is really unhelpful. It would be child's play to reinstall an old version on Pocket PC or other OS, directly from Skydemon. I suppose it is not possible for Tim to put up the previous version onto Itunes to restore from that after deleting current version.

I have the new version of Skydemon.
I have an iPad 3, but am still running ios 5
It is not jail broken.

I have turned my wifi off, to avoid that being used as a source, and turned my external Dual GPS on.
Sat in my study, I have tried clicking 'Go Flying' many times and SkyDemon has worked correctly.
I tried turning the GPS off to confirm that it was the true source and my plane correctly turned red several seconds later.
I tried loading a previous route and it showed the breadcrumb trail correctly.

Hope this info helps the attempts to diagnose the fault.

Grrr same thing happening to me! I really could have done with Skydemon this weekend as well. No satellite lock and the search function is not working for me as well. Thats the last time I install an update without leaving it a few days first to make sure it works! There really should be a way without itunes to go back to a previous version. Also not too pleased there has been no comment from the Skydemon team on this problem.
Not happy at all.

The following worked for me:-

Launch SD and enter Go Flying mode.
Press the home button, go to Settings, and turn off location services completely (master switch at the top, not the SD specific setting).
Turn location services back on.
Switch back to SD

Tried that not working still.
Has anyone got a previous version of the SD iPad app they could let me have?

I have the file SkyDemon 2.4.2.ipa backed up in Itunes. Not sure if I'm allowed to distribute though, does it contain licensing information?

I found the latest version very unstable. Crashes on launch or freezes in use. Tried uninstalling and then reinstalling but it appears that both SkyDemon and SkyDemon Light have now been pulled from the iTunes store…
