Hi Clive,

Shortly after that the Wifi died

Is the WiFi still not transmitting? Are you able to send us the PilotAware track files from that flight?

Thanks

Technical Support / Re: Installing 20190621 - SDFormat and Software upgrade
« Last Post by AdrianK on August 21, 2019, 06:51:08 pm »
I’m struggling to get the 20190621 update to load onto our Rosetta. This is using brand new recommended SD cards and the recommended formatter program. Download seems ok....likewise upload to SD card seems ok but the software doesn’t ‘unpack’ onto the Rosetta (even after 30 minutes). Reinserting the old OE SD card restores the Rosetta to a functioning unit (after about 10 mins) . Looking at the properties of the new card is shows as FAT32 and (compared with the OE card) all the files look as though they’re present. Any ideas?

Flew over the weekend and the PAW was seeing plenty of local traffic and other PAW.
Shortly after that the Wifi died and now doesn't work.
Nothing to do with anything previous so losing interest......
Thanks again for the help and suggestions. See you at the rally!
Regards, Clive

Hi Darren,

Probably a good idea!

Provided your Pi and Bridge are still working, you would still be eligible for the Rosetta Upgrade ‘Trade-In Deal’ even if the dongles are defective.

Hi again Darren,

Please see my post in the ‘Keep Losing Signal’ thread re your loss of GPS. This will of course need to be resolved first and you would be well advised to consider updating your unit to the latest 20190621 software once that issue has been dealt with.

With regard to your Configuration Settings, in general terms....

As you have a transponder, you must set Mode CS Select to Mode CS + Filter (Beta)

To allow you to see Mode CS Traffic at reasonable range, I would advise resetting Mode CS Range to ‘Medium Range’ and Mode CS Vertical Display to +/- 4000ft. These settings can be reset to closer parameters once you get used to the functionality.

In order for the FTDI lead to generate ADSB out, it needs to be connected to the correct ports on your transponder and the correct USB port in PilotAware must be configured to suit. In order to advise, we would need to know what make and model of transponder you are using.

As I say, you need to get to the bottom of the GPS / connectivity issue first, then we can deal with these other issues.

Regards

Peter

General Discussion / Re: Rosetta eating power cables

Thanks for all the replies.

It's a semi permanent install, I just tried different power supplies to check if that was the problem. Most commonly I've used the half meter cables as the power socket is near the Rosetta, but I also tried longer lengths, the original and one I already had. The 1st couple of cables were secured using tie bases and tie wraps but haven't bothered since then because of the frequency of changing! I must say that the connection into the Rosetta has never been as positive as into other devices that I have that use a micro usb so I think from what you have all said at/near the socket is probably where they are vibrating and failing. I think I'll try and secure this new lead with rubber bands or tie wraps to the Rosetta to try and keep it more secure and vibrate less and go back to tie wrapping the cable securely. I'll see if this cable lasts longer that way.
