Lee I will try your experiment when next at airfield and report back. It means I have to again unscrew 50 odd small bolts to take off the access panel on my Eurostar and then all have to be screwed back on (I only did it last week to fit the new dongle)  :(

Thanks for advice to date:

As per attached screenshot of the PAW Configure page, I have now changed the USB port labels so Ports 1, 3, 4 are set to Auto and Port 2 is set to the Funke transponder. However, this has not cured the problem. I still cant see the lower part of the Network Screen to input the hotspot password from my phone. :-\


NB:  As per second attachment, a photo of the sill above my instruments, you will see, as I have labelled on this photo, that I do in fact have (1) a FLARM mouse (2) a PAW GPS and (3) a Karnardia Horis 57 GPS. I believe it is this Horis GPS that the Funke is connected to for position data and so I guess Port 2 is ??  :-\

Thanks Peter and will do that

I would like to correctly label on the configure page what each USB port is being used for. I can see from another post that the numbering is 1 top left 2 bottom left 3 top right 4 bottom right? So 4 is the Dongle which I will change to Auto. That leaves one being Flarm and one being GPS and I cant remember what the last one is for. Any idea from the photo. Also any idea from the photo which is which. I can't remember and would have to open the access hatch to find out but there are 50 or so small bolt screws to unscrew  ???

See 2 x photo of the USB part (normal and close up). The Rosetta is normally velcroed but I peeled it off its mounting to access it to fit the dongle

I just received a new Wifi dongle from PAW. However the expected new lower part of the Network page is not showing. NB: I was very careful to insert the dongle fully into the only remaing free USB port on my Rosetta (one of the 4 is used to input a Flarm mouse).  I attach the following screenshots and any help would be appreciated:

1. Network Page - showing the lack of the expected new "hotspot" part of this screen at the bottom
2. Interface screen - showing PAW version 20220805
3. Configure Page.

I have had the new PAW software since Jan and ensured the correct Hex was saved yesterday. I then flew to Turweston with someone following in his plane. I was still showing backwards on his Sky Demon at times.

My Funke is now already in the box ready to DHL it to Germany (the £45 courier charge included £3k of insurance). Hopefully the SW upgrade may cure this issue !!

Hi Peter

I actually have a TRT800H (LED version) with SW version 5.3. I am being lent an older one (the TRT800) by LX Avionics. I am sending mine back to Germany now to upgrade, so it will then also transmit speed and direction.

I confirm I am already using PAW 20220101 and upgraded at the beginning of the year, using Neil Hatthaway's excellent updater app.

Kind rgds

1.    My PAW Rosetta had indeed reset to FAEA32 (as you explained, the Rosetta default Hex Code). I put in my correct Hex code into PAW and flew today and saw this evening that the PAW VECTOR tool is once again beginning to show PAW output , so thank you for that.

2.    I am sending my Funke for a SW upgrade to enable it to also report speed and direction (and not just position). I am hoping this will (1) stop other PAW users seeing my microlight facing backwards or sideways on Sky Demon (2) allow Sky Echo users to see my ADSB, which someone suggested may work, without needing to also pay to upgrade my GPS to certified.

PS    Does anyone know what to input in a TRT800 transponder. LX Avionics based at Turweston have very generously lent me this while my own Funke is being upgraded. What great service! The manual (see below) states the Hex + 2 digit AC aircraft category + Flight ID. Any idea if we need this 2 digit AC indentifier here in UK and what would it be for a microlight?

Hi Peter

1. The last 5 digits are AEA32

2.  I received a new PAW key on 26th Sept 2021. I thought I entered that and also thought I upgraded the SW. I will check both tomorrow and report back

Many thanks

Gary

I have a Rosetta with a Flarm mouse plugged into it and feeding into Sky Demon. I also have a Funke transponder that transmits Modes S and uncertified ADSB. I have noticed the PAW Vector tool shows a strong signal for my Flarm and ADSB but zero signal for PAW and Mode S? I have checked four other plane HEX codes that I know transmit PAW and Mode S. While these show PAW, none of them show Mode S either? Any idea?

Not sure if related to above, but flying back from Sandown on Saturday with 3 other planes (all of us with PAW) one pilot could see two of me on his Sky Demon. See two red planes on below (both me). The real "me" directly behind in his 6 o'clock but also doppelgänger me some way off in his 4 o'clock . Recently I have also noticed I sometimes see myself twice on Sky Demon with my doppelgänger in my 6 o'clock lagging slightly behind "me"? It would be good to understand what is going on and how to stop it.

In the threads to this post both Lee and Peter mentioned a software upgrade and Peter also mentioned this latest PAW version was 20201101. Using Neil Hathaway’s updater App, I am all ready to upgrade when I next go to airfield. However:

1.  I cant find any document on this Forum or the PAW website describing what changes or improvements the upgrade makes. Is there one and where would I find it?

2.  I dont recall ever receiving an email from PAW notifying there was a software upgrade available. Was one circulated? I am asking simply to make sure I dont miss these in the future.

3.  I currently have version 20200906 installed. Have I therefore missed any other upgrades between this and latest version  20201101?

OK, so I finally moved the PAW GPS mouse from glued underneath and behind the fibreglass console  shelf to now sitting on top of it, so the only thing between the GPS and the sky is my large bubble canopy. Total 100% improvement. Pilot aware on Sly Demon now fires up immediately every time and never get the “GPS signal lost” any more.

Thanks all for suggestions  :)

Very helpful - ok 70 odd panel screws to undo and then redo - to get to the GPS to move it - but sounds like it has got to be done. Will then report back!
