iPad Troubleshooting: Do you know how to fix these potential problems? You got out of 11 right!

1 COMMENT

  1. The fact that I got 11 out of 11 on this iPad Quits quiz simply means that I’ve encountered every problem discussed, either with the iPad or with another airplane device (like a standalone GPS). I think the iPad is fantastic in the airplane and with a few precautions all of these above problems can be reasonably and safely resolved (most before flight).
