Own height


from where does the SafeSky app take it’s own height?

I have a gap between the height in SafeSky and in SkyDemon/Stratux.



How big is the difference?
Are both apps running on the same device or different ones?

Yes, both apps on one device.

The difference is 400 ft.

Is it possible that SafeSky uses the GPS height instead of the barometric height?

SafeSky is using GPS altitude for all traffics, except for some ADS-B that unfortunately sometimes only contains standard altitudes (1013 hPa). We are working on a fix to re-ajust the altitude in those cases based on the local QNH, so that every traffic will be precisely on the same reference.

I think ADS-B is always barometric height.
