Curious, do you sit in the front office? I know of a jet jockey who does get it to work but where I sit on the aft side, even by a window, I can’t get any GPS lock. I heard the bad elf external GPS chip does wonders but no first hand experience myself
This does work at high atitiudes btw. Use it quite a bit at 35 to 38,000 feet
@vfrpad You look like a real ass posting your same false information over and over on various videos, not only from your primary account, but also from the @MrThecorrector1 account. We all know that you are trying your best to bash the iPad or anything other than you VFRpad just to help your own business. It’s pretty lame…
Wrong, videos I have uploaded shows 3G is turned off. Nothing to cover.
As I stated before, videos i uploaded show I am in full compliance with FARS AND FCC regulations.
What part of I turn off 3G and wireless on the iPad do you not understand? I do not use GPS assist in my flights.
Oh and 3G works higher, up to 3000 on iPad and 5000 on iPhone in my neck of the woods but like you said, FCC doesn’t approve.
FAA could care less as there is no FAR regulation that prohibits the use of a cell phone in flight. PIC makes determination of allowable electronic devices.
I turned off 3G in flight? Now your trying to cover for yourself? This is sad!
Oh man! “The 3G model contains A-GPS to allow its position to be calculated with GPS or relative to nearby cellphone towers”. GPS assist only works with 3G service, it helps 3G and WiFi locate you. Once again, 3G is prohibited in aircraft, and doesn’t work above 800 AGL. Apple created their own type of GPS to through you off. Real GPS works by 3 satellites finding your location in relation to them. Sir, you don’t know what you are talking about. I’m starting to feel sorry for you!
To clarify previous comment I turn off 3G and wireless in flight to ensure GPS stays locked on satellites.
iPad with 3G capability have an independent GPS chip. iPad with wifi only, you are correct, no GPS chip but I do have the 3G model.
Don’t believe me, look it up on the Apple website.
I turn off wifi and wireless while in flight to ensure GPS stays locked on satellites without “assist”
No Ipad was ever built with a built-in GPS, everybody knows that! To get GPS on an Ipad you have to get an external on, and the only ones that work on it are bluetooth. So just drop it, the Apple Ipad is not an aviation tool, nor even close to being a EFB.The reason I am commenting on your videos is, you are pushing the Ipad. It is just wrong! I like all your other videos, but the Ipad thing is just bad!
What part do you not understand that I am using the BUILT IN GPS chip on the iPad in my flights. No exrternal devices are being used or transmitting to my iPad.
91 only references legal electronic devices, not transmitting devices (game boys, dvd players, cd players)! You are hopeless!
A. PIC determines what electronic device is allowed on part 91 flights. Don’t believe me, look it up in FARS.
B. WRONG on your GPS theory as I am using the iPad built in GPS. Dont believe me, watch the videos I have uploaded
MY VIDEOS show and prove I am operating within FAR regulations.
Again you are clearly showing your incompetence, almost too funny.
And in order to get GPS on an Ipad, you have to connect a Bluetooth GPS to the Ipad. Against FAA regulations. You sir, are the one noone should fly with, plus you are committing FAA regulations violations, and posting it all over the world!!!!!
Ok, sense you wanted to go further. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations prohibit using the radio of wireless devices while in the air. The effect of using Bluetooth technology on an aircraft is unknown. Such use might affect aircraft instrumentation, communication, and performance, might disrupt the network, might otherwise be dangerous to the operation of the aircraft, and might be illegal.
Yeah, for as much MISINFORMATION you are posting on comments you would be the last pilot I’d want to fly with.
If you paid $1100, you paid too much, that I can tell you (probably more misinformation, but doesn’t matter to me)
My videos that already have been uploaded well before YOU SPAMMED my videos PROVE you WRONG.
I give-up, but we all heard it. Just another Ipad dealer trying to pawn something that doesn’t work on us pilots.
I don’t have a product, I am just a pilot dealing with the fact I paid $1100 dollars to try and make the Ipad work for me. It is junk, so I found another company that made a better product. Now I stand behind it, and now I want everyone to know, before it is to late! Don’t bother responding, we got it! Junk!
I fly with current charts.
I REPEAT, Yes, I download CURRENT approach plates and IFR enroute (or VFR sectional) night before flight but I access them IN FLIGHT without 3G or wireless in the plane AND can track myself on the iPad in ForeFlight.
AGAIN, all on video in my channel if you don’t believe me.
As I see it, your product does nothing more, in fact does less then what is available in ForeFlight since I assume you dont support IFR.
Then how do you do this, magic? Then you are admitting the information is not real world, and present data? You downloaded some information in an update at home, then you are taking this old data and flying with it.
Look at my videos for god sake. IT’s ALREADY UP LIKE I SAID in my previous comment!!!! What part of this do you not understand?
I can access approach plates, all sectionals, AFD FROM THE AIRPLANE and track myself right on the sectionals or IFR enroute charts WITHOUT 3G or wireless. I can access my flight briefings and cached weather images.
I am purposely leaving these comments up because I HATE SPAMMERS and even worse SPAMMERS that post incorrect information.
Ok, then I challenge anyone to go up in the air with an Ipad II, no internet, with no aftermarket supplies, and try and get information off ForeFlight? Post the video, under the name ” Foreflight without internet”. It won’t happen because it says right on their website it needs internet, this guy does know 3-4G is cellular internet right!
You DO NOT need internet access to use ForeFlight in the plane. I have plenty of videos to prove this on my channel from the comforts of 7000 feet and below
If you plan to SPAM other videos. at least post right information!!!!!!!!!
ForeFlight is totally internet dependent, if you don’t have internet, it doesn’t work. How many pilots get internet above 800 AGL, none! So how does it help us pilots? At home on my couch with my WiFi, it works great for downloading free maps and plates that ForeFlight is charging me for.Everyone knows that all that information is free from the FAA right!
I’d also be interested on what your product would do that ForeFlight doesnt do on a VFR flight.
I bought the iPad without aviation considerations. 79 yearly fee sure more economical then what you provide. It would take 6 years worth of yearly renewals to exceed the cost ot what you spammed my videos with.
Do your research before you continue to look like a spammer without a clue what they are talking about.
Let’s just start in that no external GPS is needed and I talk first hand experience. Secondly, I get far more use out of the iPad use not only for aviation.
Thirdly I fly IFR, what good is your product for me on a IFR flight that Foreflght can’t do.
I haven’t even looked at your product since you spammed my videos. Are updated sectional free?
BeechSundowner, how can I get in contact with you?
actually I should say can you contact me please?
