It was simple question that need a one or two word answer ::)

As an aside, when I update the iOS PAW updater, it tells me that 230316 is the latest version.

Is 240417 still a beta version?

The Rosetta FX offers updates from within the status GUI if connected to the Internet.
It may do, but as a 'legacy' Rosetta user that doesn't answer my question!

Given the relative paucity of ATOM stations outside of the UK, could you confirm that the receipt of weather data was dependant on having iGrid enabled (and thus reception of a mobile signal while airborne)?

I'm trying to establish how useful this will be flying at higher levels IFR.

Just to bring this to a close - the Pi transplant worked like new on Friday when I finally had the chance to test it in the air :)

Side benefit - all the USB ports, and more importantly the power socket, are nice and snug on their respective plugs.

Thanks both - I've managed to find a brand new boxed 3B on eBay at not much more than half the price of a new 3B+. Perhaps better to stick with the devil I know, and lowers the possibility of power issues if I have to take it to another aircraft and run off a battery.

I'll contact Ashley once it arrives.

Once it's all working OK would the old one be of any use to PAW HQ for repair/cannibalising for ATOMs? I'll send it to you if so.

I've just seen that a new Pi 3B+ is about £40.

Can one of the tech team confirm yhat this will work OK? If so I may just short cut the process and buy a new one now.

Some time ago I had some reliability issues with my 'powered by a Charge2' Rosetta, but these went away if I followed the mantra of pulling the USB port circuit breaker before engine shutdown, and not powering it up until after engine start. I was never really convinced that this really got to the bottom of the problem, but it's seemed to work for the last few months.

Out of the blue today the Rosetta just wouldn't work. USB or Anker battery, nada. All I'd get was three green flashes from the Bridge board, and a solid red light from the Pi, and nothing more. On the bench back at home I've found the problem, in that the outboard end of the SD card socket has come away from the Pi, leaving it hinged from the inboard end, so the poor bugger can't boot up and just sits there. I suspect a flakey SD socket connection has been the problem the whole while, and it's finally given up the ghost.

My soldering skills certainly aren't up to the job of reseating/replacing the SD card slot, so I'd welcome suggestions on options.

- can anyone replace the SD slot for me?
- has anyone a dead rosetta with a good Pi they'd sell me?
- is the right Pi still available to buy new?
- do PAW Towers offer a sensible trade in against an Fx?
- any other suggestions?

As an aside, I had to fly with a SkyEcho@ today in its place. My aircraft is certified ADSB out equippped so I was only using it in receive mode. Whilst it saw plenty of traffic, I remain convinced it's highly selective in what it does receive, as I flew above, behind, below and in front of a mate in another certified ADSB out equipped aircraft for two hours and it never saw him once, despite Vector showing his aircraft broadcasting loud and clear. I just can't bring myself to trust the SE2 the way I do the PAW.

It’s my consistent experience that the ‘Go’ button does nothing if the flight dates are visible. Once they are collapsed, data can be refreshed with ‘Go’.

Sounds to me more of a SkyDemon issue than a PAW issue, and -may- be related to a quirk with your version of tablet/Android.

I'd suggest calling the SD help-desk who may well have seen similar issues with others and be able point you in the right direction.

Are you trying this out airborne or while on the ground?

IIRC the SkyDemon traffic alert algorithm relies on you being airborne (and/or above a certain speed, I believe) so you don't get constant alerts while parked and taxying.

In that case start with the headset and work backwards. It could be something as simple as a dicky socket or the mini Jack plug not pushed in quite far enough.

Have you checked that traffic warnings are enabled on SD by toggling it on at:

Setup>Navigation Options>(Other Traffic)Verbal Traffic Information ?

 You haven’t got the traffic box ticked, only POI. :)

For those of you who use the playback tool - you can now press Press the 'a' key on your keyboard and it will open up the Aircrew traffic display to see what it would be like to fly with Aircrew.
Is this feature still a thing, or is it platform dependent?

I've just tried on a Mac with both Safari and Firefox browsers and I didn't see an instrument pop-up.
