Been having a lot of trouble recently with my iPad (original version 1), which has been crashing - especially with SkyDemon but also occasionally with the built in Safari browser. Took it to the Apple Store where they reflashed it back to factory settings. After reinstalling a fresh copy of SD, it crashed after a few minutes when simply planning a route to France. When connecting a remote GPS bluetooth receiver and going into flying mode, it rarely lasts
Anybody else still using the original iPad for SD?
I realise its pretty slow to update/redraw the screen but hadn't expected it to bomb out completely.
By contrast, running ForeFlight (a US equivalent) works fine - don't think it ever crashed on me once.
I know SD did a few updates to help avoid an issue with memory exhaustion, and thought that might fix it, but I still have problems.
Need to figure out whether to invest in an upgrade or simply avoid the iPad version completely. My trusty (but very cheap Chinese) Windows CE device hasn't let me down at all so far.
