Everytime I turn off the remote this comes up.... Why?
Same here. Every time. Don't know why. I just act like I'm panning for gold for a second then go about my business. It's like a ritual now.
Its to calibrate the level app I think... No idea why its there lol guess I will just pan away
@Pumpfixer I've flown easy over 15 to 20 flights and have never gotten that screen...
It's very irritating....does it in both iPad and iPhone so seems to be app related. I don't recall getting it on the previous version 1.1.1, but didn't use it much prior to upgrading to current version
Do you use ios or droid?
@Pumpfixer I'm using an iPad 2 mini ...
Is compass calibration on? I just turned off amd will try tomorrow
It's the iOS wanting to calibrate your iPad or whatever you're using.
My Ipad 3 also--
I've seen that before on my iPhone 4S. Its compass related.
I get that about half the time I fly the P3A. It is the iPhone compass wanting calibration. If I start the compass app the same thing happens sometimes. Might be worth trying to calibrate it through the compass app first before starting Pilot to see if that fixes it.
iPad Air here, I got that once the first time I launched the pilot app.
That's the calibration screen for the compass app in iOS devices. Happens almost every time I open compass on my iPhone 5 & 6. Never seen it on the iPad mini 2 cellular I fly with. It doesn't have the compass app on it.
The Mini does have a compass though since it knows what direction it's pointed in the Apple & Google map apps. It's pretty accurate but I don't know how since I've never calibrated it. I don't remember if the Pilot app uses the iPad compass to show what direction your facing. I haven't really paid attention to that.
I got that circular calibration on my new iPad Air 2, once, and only once.
Seems like it's simple enough, to do this calibration, if only. for a minute of your time.
I got this sometimes for the app on my iPad as well. In my opinion, this is to calibrate the correct direction so if the homepoint is set and you are already flying it, the map orientation is still correct when you move around.
I get it about 75% of the time.
I have 50 flights on android and haven't seen it once.
Same ball on I-pad2 mini ret.
