First Time Booting
« on: July 31, 2015, 07:13:22 pm »
Hi All

Some notes regarding the setup of various navigation tools

1. Common Setup

1.1 iPad/iPhone Software Access point
Ensure that the iPad/iPhone has connected to the Hotspot/SoftAP, this will be shown as
PilotAware-001122334455
Whereby the number 001122334455 will be unique to your installation, this number is required
for licensing, but must be connected as the WiFi source

1.2 iPad/iPhone CollisionAware
Once connected to the WiFi Hotspot, start CollisionAware running by sliding the connector.
Enter the value of your transponder into the ICAO field, this is transmitted by PilotAware, and also,
if you are running ADS-B, stops you from seeing yourself.


2. SkyDemon Specific

2.1 Setup->Connectivity_Options
Select FLARM
set the Air Connect Key to 6000

2.1 Setup->Navigation_Options
Go to the bottom of the options and alter 'Show within Vertically' to something like +-40000ft,
otherwise for testing purposes, you will see no traffic

2.2 Fly
and select 'Use Flarm'


3. RunwayHD

3.1 Settings->System
Enable Flarm mode
IP Address 192.168.1.1
Port 2000
Passcode 6001
Altitude Filter(+/-ft) 40000 


4. EasyVFR

4.1 Menu->NavTools->Settings->FlarmSettings
WiFlyIPAddress: 192.168.1.1
WiFly Port: 2000
WiFly Pin-code: 6001


5. Sky-Map
Setup> Wireless Interface Setup
Enable Wi-Fi
IP address: 192.168.1.1
Port: 2000
Password: 6001
Setup> FLARM / Show ADSB traffic

6. Air Navigation Pro
configuration->sensors->FLARM-AirAvionics-AirConnect
Sensor: On
Pin Code: 6001


Thats about it for now
I will update when I get more questions

Thx
Lee

Hello
I have tried these two WiFi dongles which claim to be RT5370, but I cannot see any WiFi Pilotaware hotspot on various Android devices. The boot sequence appears normal. Any idea what I am not doing?

Hi Simon,

If you have a wired network, can you connect PilotAware to your wired network using the RJ45 connector
then open a browser from another machine which is on the same network to

http://192.168.1.1
please provide a screenshot or type the full line listed against the WiFi USB device

The Dongle must be the Ralink RT5370 device supporting SoftAP

Simon,

Can you see the access point from another device, eg

WindowsPC
iOS device

If you are still stuck, please get in touch I have a few working WiFi dongles, I can sell at cost
Thx

No I cannot see the Pilotaware hotspot from my PC wifi either. I will try and connect via the RJ45 cable and see if I can do a screen capture. The wifi dongle blue LEDS blink so something is working.

Connected via the RJ45 network cable I could not see anything, but when I inserted the NOOBS microSD I saw raspberry pi 192.168.1.13 so I think my version of the Pilotaware software is corrupted.  I am not sure how to get a screen capture, I have a HDMI port on my PC, but am not sure whether I can use it for this.
Simon

Yes you can connect the hdmi to your monitor, but I guess you are doing that already

Please connect a monitor and tell me if anything is reported, especially regarding 'hostapd'

You say 'could not see anything', can you explain what you mean ?
If you are expecting Pilotaware to be listed as a client on your router, that will not happen, the ip is static, not dynamic.

Apologies for earlier posting, I posted the wireless not wired IP
So just to double check, can you attempt to connect a web browser to
http://192.168.0.100

Thx
Lee

I am in France and have a box to connect to the internet, which provides connections for a PC, a router and a satellite TV decoder. With those three plugged in, typing 192.168.1.1 displays the configuration, in my case Orange, and shows the three devices connected. If I unplug the router and plug in the Raspberry pi, it only detects its presence with the NOOBS microSD card. With the Pilotaware microSD card inserted, only the other two devices are shown.  Typing 192.168.0.100 fails to find anything.
I don't know how to capture the booting sequence, which I can see with the HDMI cable connected to my TV, but it scrolls too fast for me to notice anything bad, although I have seen a few red fails.

Hi Simon

Sorry for your troubles, lets take a little step back and think this through.

Can I confirm the following

1. The raspberry pi you are using is a PI B+, and not a PI 2 ?
2. The installation procedure as described in the guide was successful ?
3. Power is capable of more than 1.5amps

Thx
Lee

Aha, this may be the problem. I bought a package from China which included a 3.5" screen and a plastic case. Looking at my order it specifies it as a Raspberry Pi 2 model B, which I thought was the same thing.
Lost in translation I think.

I am sorry to hear that Simon, if you want to double check I suggest the following
Firstly boot up NOOBS, then login to get a shell prompt and type the following

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

On a PiB+ I get the following
Quote
processor       : 0
model name      : ARMv6-compatible processor rev 7 (v6l)
BogoMIPS        : 2.00
Features        : half thumb fastmult vfp edsp java tls
CPU implementer : 0x41
CPU architecture: 7
CPU variant     : 0x0
CPU part        : 0xb76
CPU revision    : 7

Hardware        : BCM2708
Revision        : 0010
Serial          : 00000000bb09bbc0

the PI 2 is a Quad Core, so I think the minimum difference will be that you will see a listing for 4 processors

Porting to the PI 2, is a TODO for me, but pretty busy with other issues at the moment

Please let me know if this is the issue.

Thx
Le

Yup, it says it has an ARMv7 and for hardware a BCM 2709. I'll spend the winter famliiarising myself with this and maybe next year you'll have a tweak. I am in no hurry.
Bon courage for all your good work

You are connected to Pilotaware Wifi ?
The PAW IP address is 192.168.1.1, so when you connect to this address it should be served from PAW

Are you on Android or iOS ?

Are you sure you are connected to PilotAware ?
What you are reporting is what you get if you are connected to your home router
