    I got this alert yesterday on the upper left corner of iPad air screen, in yellow. I have auto update on the GO App, so whatever the newest version is, that's what I've got.

    Anyone have any info on this? I don't think it restricted me as much as it was alerting me...I guess it's a good heads up...in case you don't know where you are...do any of us really know where we are? :confused:

    I got a similar warning (after instilling the update). It alerted me to fly with caution due to an unpaved airport in the area. I like the additional info this provides because in this case, I had no idea that there was an airport nearby.

    Nor, I'll bet, did you know the runway was unpaved...time to rethink that landing zone, and fast!! ;)

    @captainmilehigh interestingly, looking at the map, I was not flying in any of the 4 zones of hell...or is that 7 rings of fire? I can never remember. Regardless, thanks for the tips...I was just thinking out loud as this unwelcome pop up was **** near blocking 4% of my screen. SMDH

    I get an alert when I attempt to exceed the 400 foot limit set in Chicago. Alerts are great since none of us want to travel into improper areas...... althouigh I would like to turn off all my lights sometimes ;)
