  1. I use an android and I am sure there are many others who do as well. Is it possible to have joint articles that include us as well? Thanks

    • Anthony, have you forgotten where you are? Do you also go into McDonald’s and demand they serve you a Whopper? You know, to make it “fair”?

  2. I must say I started using an efb with a nexus 9 because it could run Garmin Pilot. It started giving me various issues. I switched to an iPad…the only ios device I own. I must say it performs well and reliably. And Garmin Pilot works great on it, with many features the android based nexus and my Galaxy s10 cannot do.

  3. So, I have an iPad with ForeFlight and a STRATUS IN module. I get Traffic and TIBs, but I have not seen ANY RADAR. I am located within and fly within the NY Class B. I’ll blame me first… What am I doing wrong?

    • This sounds really obvious, but make sure the radar layer is turned on from the Maps page. If it is, check the Stratus Status page (tap the gear symbol at the top left, scroll down and tap Stratus). Make sure that’s showing connected and then see what the age of the radar says.
