Just used this topic to help in getting ADS-B out working on a TT21.

All very straightforward. the job was made easier by the TT21 wiring loom having a flying lead for pins 4&5 coming out to allow easy termination for the connection of the mentioned Farnell USB to tails adaptor.

The GPS In was enabled as uncertified, the GPS input status was seen on the second press of the Fn button, and the ADS-B out was seen on the local ATOM ground station.

Thanks to everyone for their contributions.

Worth eliminating the browser by using another one for a brief test, like Chrome or Safari?

Does the issue arise when using the iPad split screen, if it is able to do that?

Lee is the boss, so not contradicting anything he's saying, but one other little side suggestion?

If you have your phone to hand in flight, you could load a Wifi survey tool before you fly, or have it on the tablet.

When the Wifi disappears, if you have Wifi survey tool running, you can be 100% sure that the network has disappeared.

Don't forget to refresh the surveying tool before you conclude it's there/not there...

This is one example of said tool:

Hi EC,

As the designer of the Charge2 and Charge4 aviation power supplies, Jeremy is the expert when it comes to power supply issues and his advice here certainly bears out anything I would be suggesting myself.

Plus one here for JCurtis.

He's helped me on a friend's trike with a Charge 2 fitted, all problems sorted and none from the Charge 2, cable got broken due to us, new one supplied in the blink of an eye.

The diagnostic mode on the Charge 2/4 allows these sorts of problems to be sniffed very easily...

Did you ever check the PAW Wifi output power and try cranking it up a notch?


I use it in the aircraft with the same power cable and power connector (cigar lighter adapter) as ever, and at home with a stable power source and good USB cable .. don't think it's a power issue. All the 3 dongles are plugged-in ok as far as I can see.

The adsb receiver dongle (and therefore the wifi dongle because it touches the adsb dongle) get very hot  ... but always did since years.

Any one have an idea what can be the issue ? I really changed nothing in the position of the PAW in the aircraft, or the cables or the dongles, it just went whacko.

It went whacko so something has failed. Unless you have evidence for something, it's no good saying I don't think it could be that.

We need to gather evidence that the USB power is still up to the job, and that the ADS-B SDR isn't loading the power supply down.

First thing might be to use a USB power meter like this one:

to see if the USB port is giving you over 5V and what current it is taking.

Alternatively, disconnect the ADS-B SDR and see if this fixes things.

If you can't be arsed with the USB voltmeter, then swap out the 12V to USB converter, and then the lead, to fault find by substitution.

You should really be using the recommended Anker 12V to USB for optimum reliability.

A proper support person will be along soon with better ideas.

I emailed James a week or so ago but received no reply. James is probably really busy and I am very grateful for all his free work on the playback feature. Is there anyway PilotAware can help out? Any thoughts?

Erm, they have:

Either it's http or it's https and the certificate has expired. Looks like an expired certificate in this case...

Either way, unless you are spending money or putting passwords into it, it's probably browsers being slightly over nannying...

Technical Support / Re: Wi-Fi loss after reset / reload
« on: June 09, 2023, 09:06:33 pm »
After a reset and reload the unit will need to left powered up for a very low time whilst it does the necessary.

Often, people do not leave the unit for long enough to finish the reinstall.

If you look at the HDMI output the machine will get to a login prompt after this time has elapsed and the default wireless network should have been restored. Then you can access it.

Worth looking here:

Wait until the lights have settled down if the Classic has them?

If it looks like everything is Donald Ducked, then look here:

Solved - network reset. There was some sort of bottleneck which was found by pinging the router.

There is a lot of relevant discussion here:,2305.0.html

Any more thoughts or suggestions of what I should try?

A skyecho has a vso setting
Anything less than this and it will not emit a position report
Can you check its setting

Does the CAP1391 have the setting for flying/not flying enabled? I think the default may be 10 knots to switch over? Been a while since I looked...

Android has a habit of doing this when any power/battery saving options are enabled
Try disabling

Ditto data saving or compression...

Is there an issue if the tablet is connected to a Wifi network with no Internet access? Newer versions of Android can rear up about this.

Does the tablet have a problem with connecting to open networks?

Both things to Google for with your particular model.

You can remove the open networks theory by setting a password for the PAW Wifi, then if it makes no difference, clearing it again.

Do you have Internet access/iGrid?

Tablet firmware/Android fully up to date?

Hi Steve,

Not sure what you mean by different life experiences?

I have to use a WiFi link, otherwise I would have to dig a 100 metre trench to lay a cable to reach the barn where the OGN-R station is set up. Removing the power line adapters takes out another possible bottleneck in the current link.



You got rid of the powerline adaptors, what did you replace that part of the network with?
