According to the instructions to use the navigation app on a tablet which does not have internet connectivity with a SIM card, the following instructions are given (BTW, it mentions ‘PowerFLARM’ where to connect to - I expect this is a copy/paste error and it should read ‘PilotAware Rosetta’:
- Install SafeSky on your phone that has a SIM card
- Connect your phone to the ‘PowerFLARM’ Wifi
- Connect your tablet to the ‘PowerFLARM’ Wifi as before
- Start SafeSky and click ‘Take Off’…
Now, I did that, but I only get the contacts that PilotAware sees, not the contacts from SafeSky. For me, the set-up does not make sense, unless the SafeSky app on the iPhone transmits its contacts to PilotAware - which then relays all contacts to the iPad EasyVFR application. As stated, I don’t see this happening.
When the iPhone is also connected to the PilotAware Wifi, it will get both PilotAware contacts AND the SafeSky contacts through the SIM card - but there is NO connection then between the iPhone and the iPad. If I set the iPad to share the connection with the iPhone (personal hotspot mode), I do see the contacts from SafeSky, but then, does this include the contacts from PilotAware as well? This way I could see it working, but it does mean I’m not able to use the PilotAware GPS.
Any insights on how this actually is supposed to work is appreciated!
