On the map in SafeSky it’s my understanding that ADS-b and Flarm targets show as black. Those purely using SafeSky show in blue. My question is if I’m transmitting both ADS-b and SafeSky do I show in black or blue? Also is someone clicked on my target in the info box would it say I’m transmitting both? Thank you
SafeSky will deduplicate traffic when coming from multiple sources, such as ADS-B and SafeSky so that you never have a double echo on the map. That’s why you need to fill in your icao24/hex transponder code in your aircraft definition.
Then, SafeSky will always prioterise traffics by their most recent position timestamp. This means that if for a period you have no internet access for instance, people will see you on the map turning from blue to black, since ADS-B or Flarm will probably have updates positions but not SafeSky. It will return to blue as soon as SafeSky transmits a new position successfully.
Main benefit for pilots is that you see a continuous transmission based on the best latest position message
Note that SafeSky positions have almost no latencies, where other traffics can have a few seconds potentially. This is why SafeSky in blue is, in practice, always taking precedence over others on the map.
Ok thanks for that Tristan, makes sense
