Lately, I see that message with distressing frequency - often at an inopportune time. Yesterday, my iPad / Stratus combo crapped out only a couple times - I’ve had episodes where the connection dropped a dozen times in a three hour flight ... and then there’s days like today - 2.5 hour flight, perfect connection on three devices, no trouble at all ...

Anyway, I’ve lost confidence in ForeFlight and Stratus for any serious use as a syn-vis backup, or even for traffic awareness, so where do I go next ?

Is there anyway to hardwire a Stratus to an iPad and just circumvent the WiFi altogether ? Or do I need a GDL-xx and a Garmin portable to get solid syn-viz ?

Oh yeah - I already updated FF and Stratus, not in power-saver mode, using iPad Mini4, current iOS update.

I have been getting lots of "ADSB Disconnected" on my iPad (using Stratux, running Foreflight, also connected to FS210 via Bluetooth).

Have been planning on updating Stratux SW, just have not gotten around to it. Crazy thing is that the iPad still shows the stratux wifi connection.

No rhyme or reason as to the cut outs that I can find.

I wonder if any of tha Scout users are seeing this?

Foreflight works with the Garmin GDL39 3D - that is what I use.

You guys should let Foreflight know so they can investigate it. They may not care much about the Stratux, but they certainly would about the Stratus problems.

We are investigating this right now. If you've seen these "Disconnected" messages, please reach out directly to the ForeFlight Pilot Support Team at team@foreflight.com with the following info:

1) As best you can remember, when you started seeing the "Disconnected" messages.

2) Which version of iOS is on the device(s) where you've been seeing it. If you've seen it on multiple versions of iOS, please let us know that too.

3) Which version(s) of the app where you've been seeing it. If you've seen it on multiple versions of the app, please let us know that too.

4) Which ADS-B device you're using (such as Stratus 2S, FlightStream 210 + GTX345, etc...)

When we receive your report we will follow-up with you to request Diagnostic logs from your iPad.

And if you're going flying soon, please turn ADS-B "Logging" ON before your next flight per: https://support.foreflight.com/hc/en-us ... a-logging- We may want to get that logging data from a future flight where you see the Disconnected message.

Thanks!

I had it happen to me the other week. Using foreflight and stratux with an external belly mounted antenna. I was only receiving one tower, but I happened to be maybe 500 feet above and a mile or two away that tower (For the locals it was the tower near the Donnelly VOR). I get my GPS via the stratux and that kept working, so I am not thinking its that box.

Did notice after the flight that my external antenna was plenty oily and dirty. Don't know if that makes a difference.
