Hi Lee

Like rg I rent flying school aircraft and currently have a choice of 6 aircraft.  Often I won't know which one I'm going to fly until I turn up.  Getting a bit long in the tooth I find ICAO codes a bit difficult to remember, call signs would be so much easier.  But I understand your reasons for not implementing this.

Would it be possible to provide a table in the web interface, where Users such as myself could enter the call signs and ICAO codes of all the a/c they are going to fly (say maximum 10), then include a selector of their aircraft call-signs (preferably in CollisionAware - beta users might be prepared to type in but your average pilot won't be)?  Then your magic software could look up the required ICAO code.

Chris, two settings to check/change in Skydemon.

a)  Go into Settings/Connectivity Options.  Ensure FLARM is ticked, then change the Air Connect Key at the bottom to 6000 (the default is usually 1234)
b). Go into Settings/Navigation Options.  Scroll down to the bottom, then increase 'Show within vertically' to circa 40,000' in order to see airline traffic.

Oh, and yes, you must start the CollisionAware app.

Added.  Not happy about adding contact details directly on Google maps for reasons already discussed.  How about adding club / home airfield (e.g. SW Flying School @ EGBW)

Hi Lee, thanks for the licence key.  Success, I can see airliners passing overhead on Skydemon.
One question, I have a wifi only iPad, and connect to XGPS150 GPS via Bluetooth.  I can't figure out how to connect to this and also the PilotAware via FLARM at the same time.  Is it possible?
