Keeps crashing.

Can’t keep it open for more than 4 min on the iPad before it freezes. Close the app and it won’t re open unless I reboot the device.

GPS adsb 170

Does not work with 170.. only with 170(d)..

Also, firmware update on web site does not work..

Seams that they no longer support XGPS170..

AHRS doesn’t work correctly.

I bank about 5 degrees and it says i’m banking 45. Also zeroing does not work correctly. But wait, the example on this page shows the XGPS190 firmware as 2.5.14! As of 09/15/2018 The latest firmware on the dual website for the 190 is 2.4.1. I’ve had this problem before where they do not post the latest SW version.

Also, this tool locks up often especially when trying to turn foreflight compatibility on. There are many bugs but perhaps if they give us the latest firmware it would behave better.
