I've posted this elsewhere but seems more appropriate here.
For over a year now I have been running SD on an original iPad and enjoying the benefits of such a good piece of software.
However, I'm now using the latest version of the iPad SD (late Dec release) on the same iPad with iOS 5.1.1 and have found that the SD software constantly crashes out on me. I've tried this on the ground and in air, only to find the same results. Whether I'm in plan mode or GPS navigation mode, it just keeps on happening!
I've restarted the iPad, shutdown all other apps -- all to no avail. On today's flight in MVFR the longest that I managed to keep SD running in Navigation Mode was about 5 minutes and the shortest time was 15 seconds. According to the logs I have about 20 flights logged, mainly from "unknown to "unknown" , as I tried to restart SD in mid flight.
SD is a fantastic piece of software but I'm not able to rely on this latest iPad release whereas in the previous version I may have experienced a crash on the odd occasion and was happy to live with that.
I'm thinking about purchasing the iPad mini but will be putting that on hold and returning to the Navsgo as my main SD device. What a shame as SD and iPad ae made for each other.
Is anybody else experiencing the same problems?
