With a very small amount of thought you could have made a tidy installation.
There are a lot of very satisfied users out there [all looking forward to the next developments] so why don't you dust it off and take a serious look at what it does?
You never know we might be spared your knocking.
Of course I tried it: I'm not completely daft.
I spent ages trying to get the (vertical) aerial to bend so it didn't touch the screen and to stick the wire aerial on the 'window-sill' on RHS. (Piper Arrow/raked screen)
And velcro and parcel tape to keep the two boxes together on the coaming and not to drop off in turns.
It worked after a fashion but the iPad mini screen got so cluttered up with EZYs at FL 350 that I co-opted my iPad as well on the RHS.
That kept slithering about all over the place and intermittently shutting down, necessitating a super-abundance of 'heads-in' sessions and re-setting every time to eliminate the EZYs at FL Nosebleed.
I tried zip ties to corral all the loose cables leading to a sodding great battery in the R footwell pocket.
Oh and the two versions of SD automatically shut down my iPhone back up, but that's another story.....
Oh yes, I tried it and feel qualified to knock it. But that shouldn't offend the converted.
I think we were being used as beta -testers
.Not that that's necessarily a bad thing: I was a beta tester for Avbrief and still use it as my first port of call for weather.
