Technical Support / Re: Rosetta / Sky Demon / uAvionix AV-30 combo
« Last Post by Young_C on Today at 08:45:38 am »
Hi Chris / All,
I also have the same question whether my Rosetta will be able to send traffic information to an AV-30 EFIS. Please could you let me know whether you've managed to get this to work?

Best regards,

Hi Peter,

The one that didn't work (for me) is exactly the second you posted, which I picked from the recommended list: https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B019GJLER8

The one working "almost" fine (occasional voltage drops when I still had the igrid wifi module, so far fine without) is similar to the first, however 20100 wasn't available in Italy at the moment of purchase, so I went for the 20000, which I'm currently happy with: https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B09SFS9J2K/

I also got the cigarette lighter adapter but never managed to use it, as recently I've only been flying dual for my IR and the take off checklists of most aircraft I fly mandate aux power to be operated only after takeoff, therefore no point using it, as I would have to wait for Rosetta to get a GPS fix exactly when there is more traffic: https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B071WYF9HP

Regards

This is the link to the version of Anker PowerBank that was originally recommended...

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00VJSGT2A/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have also had satisfactory with both of the following...

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B019GJLER8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00Z9UY65G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Can you post a link to the version(s) that you are having trouble with please.

Regards

Finally, lets keep positive- we surely don’t need another flyer forum  :o

Wise words!

I have a feeling it was something to do with the low pwer draw of the Paw unit that somehow fooled the powerbank into thinking nothing ws connected and switched itself off.

Spot on Alan, it's exactly what's happening. I can see Rosetta's LEDs for a while, then it all turns off, power bank included. I just returned the 10k as it's useless. Hopefully the 20k seems not as "smart", although I had purchased it to power multiple also the phone and I understood it's not a good idea to mix devices.

Anyway I'm charging the phone with the portable hotspot, another bonus of my setup :)

Hi, I seem to remember that some time ago these power banks became designated as "Smart" and caused similar problems to this.  i cannot remember what the final outcome of this was but I have a feeling it was something to do with the low pwer draw of the Paw unit that somehow fooled the powerbank into thinking nothing ws connected and switched itself off.

Hopefully someone with a better recollection of this will be along to shed some light.

For the avoidance of doubt

- if you find a bug, report it, we will fix it

- if you want an enhancement, report it (enhancements page) we will consider it

For enhancements, we are always looking at feasibility, ease of implementation, and how many likes get assigned in order to gauge how broad the request is from the community

We have limited resources, and must apply them where best applicable

Finally, lets keep positive- we surely don’t need another flyer forum  :o

Thx

It is true that I have lost touch with programming. That stopped with my A Level computer science in 1984 and the world advancing from Machine Code, Fortran etc. Until then I was pretty good.

The fact that my PAW Classic, with Serial connection to my Dynon HDX, GPS from the HDX, WIFI to my iPad/SkyDemon and iGrid all work perfectly, without me trying to re-program anything, would indicate slightly better than ‘illiterate’……….whilst accepting the expertise of the likes of Lee and Co, who have made such a good job of making it plug & play for the other ‘illieratii’.

My ATOM station also works very well, despite me not interfering.

You’re not actually trying to improve things for the benefit of others. You’re just attempting to show off how much better your ideas are compared to Lee and Co. Whereas they are far too polite to say, there are others amongst us who are quite happy to say we really don’t care how clever you think you are.

Strangely enough, I confirm it just doesn't work with the PowerCore 10000, but it does nicely with the PowerCore 20000.

Same wiring, I just plug the USB in the 10k, leds turn on both on the power bank and inside Rosetta, then nothing else happens and the power bank leds turn off.
Unplugging the USB from the power bank side (so no change to Rosetta's side), I just plug it into the 20k and it works fine.

On a flight just yesterday I actually thought that the lack of connection was due to an issue with the SD card, which popped out (now I put some tape to keep it together), but today I couldn't get it working again.

I purchased the 10k because I saw some voltage errors on the 20k, following the recommendations, but perhaps those errors occurred when I was using the additional wifi module for iGRID, which I happily ditched. So now it should be fine, and btw I also have the Anker cigarette lighter (which I didn't use because it was my IFR check ride, so better avoiding complications in the front of the cockpit).

Just as shared by Keith Vinnings (thanks for the kind support) it might be that newer PowerBanks don't have the same specs as the old ones.

Have you ever considered how much time tinkerers, like you, take up in having to reply to unnecessary queries, brought about because you can’t just simply turn it in and allow it to do it’s job?.
This rant coming after the intended setup is complete, only increases the satisfaction.

You already showed unmistakable signs of functional illiteracy with the previous judgemental post, leaving only a stale smell as if coming from the past, only I was kind enough to avoid putting a spotlight on them earlier.


The use of the phrase, "only increases the satisfaction" seems to imply some sort of taunt.

Then you accuse someone of "functional illteracy". This is a personal attack, which is not what this sort of forum is for, IMO.
