please can anyone advise if it is possible to view satellite position info via the pilot app? Any help appreciated. Thanks
Also, I don't believe you would have the ability to pick and choose satellites anyway. Basically "it is what it is" as far as signal from a particular location,time,atmospheric conditions,etc. Are you saying you wouldn't fly even with a good signal if they originated from a cluster of satellites? It's a very interesting theory.I don't believe the o.p. was talking about a poor signal, just "spread out" satellites. I agree, a poor signal is just that. For this type flying, as long as there is a good signal from ANY satellite I am confident. The triangulation algorithms are the same whether its clustered or widespread.
OK, not exactly sure I agree with you on that one.The reason for wanting to see them is to make sure you have a nice even spread and not a cluster of them and this could lead to issues…. (something the CAA in UK are very hot on promoting). thanks
This was caused by a firmware issue in the last version. The algorithms were a little too 'over zealous' when it came to poor/abnormal compass data which was coded to 'drop' into atti mode for safety. GPS was never actually lost, it just appeared that way and the aircraft switched to atti mode as it is programmed to do.@ The Editor- Great info! If this is all true, why do you think so many inspire pilots experience intermitent GPS failures? I would have to think it is a software/hardware issue. Which is more likely if this is the case?
