    Has anyone backed up their flight plan data and then restored it to an iPad? When one backs up with either iCloud or iTunes and then restore all apps, will the saved flight plan data survive in the GS app? Or is there another way to do this?

    UPDATE: I decided to test the backup data on a complete iPad erase and restore. First I made sure I was backed up both in iTunes and iCloud. Then I wiped the iPad clean to factory settings. Then did a restore with iTunes. All previous flight plan data was restored into the GS app. I assume iCloud restores just as well. But I think doing a hard sync in iTunes along with iCloud would be prudent.

    I don't see a way to transfer flight plan data other than to sync multiple iPads. It would be nice to be able to be able to save the individual data files off the GS app for save keeping, but I don't see that capability. Maybe DJI will put that and the POI into the next update.
