Step 1 : connecting to the SkyView WiFi network
Make sure the WiFi network on the SkyView is setup correctly, then connect your tablet to the Dynon WiFi network
Step2 : Verify EasyVFR4 receives data from the SkyView by choosing menu->System ->Location (GPS) source
Now a list of all connections that are supported by EasyVFR4 are listed. Each connection can be coloured white, bright green, dimmed green or red.
- White : connection is not receiving any data so its not used
- Dimmed Green : connection is receiving data, but its GPS position is flagged as not reliable. So EasyVFR4 is not using this connection as position source, but it can will still be used to receive traffic data (SkyView doesn't support sending traffic data over WiFi, unfortunately) or Send&receive flightplans (in case of a Dynon SkyView).
- Bright Green : connection is receiving data, and is used as GPS position source.
- Red: Connection is receiving data but its unrecognized or (in case of Internal GPS) GPS position data is unreliable.
When the [Automatic] option is enabled (which is the default and highly advised), then EasyVFR4 will automatically pick the best GPS location source available, and in case that fails will automatically switch back to the next one available. Whenever such an automatic switchover occurs EasyVFR4 will always popup a notification message that must be acknowledged by the user so it is never switching without the user knowing.
Step3: Load or create a route using the route window:
Step 4: Select RouteTools menu
Step 5: Select SkyView Get/Send Route. If this options is blocked, then verify using step 2 that the tablet is still connected to the SkyView. Both Android and iOS nowadays have the tendency to silently switch to a different WiFi access point if that access point provides internet access.
step 6: Choose Send Active Route, after which a successful transfer will be signaled
