    Since no one is reading the GS forum, I'll try here.

    My system:
    Ph2, avl58, Zenmeuse gimbal, gopro hero 3+ black, FPV hub, iosd mini.

    The air end was connected directly to the iosd mini canbus port socket.
    RC controller on, aircraft on.
    Props removed.

    Turn the ipad on and open the application.
    Upper left corner: Green light, blue light, n/a.
    Upper right corner: all appear to show as they should but far right item shows n/a.
    For a few try's I was able to get to the "settings" menu.
    Click on flight simulator. --> Please connect to aircraft.

    Now when I open the application, there is a blue colored lock in the box of icons midway on the right side.
    I can not open settings.

    How do I connect to the aircraft?
    How do I get by the blue lock?

    To connect to aircraft, ground end must be powered on, blue tooth unit will light up green. Ipad will acknowledge connection. First by saying "attitude mode" then GPS mode when sync'd and ready to go.

    So I should have the switch in atti mode to connect not gps?
    I'll try that and see what happens.

    Ok. Now have RC in atti mode and IOC off.
    Mode still shows n/a.
    Satellites show 0 probably due to being under a metal roof.
    The lock is gone and shows a prop instead.
    Still, nothing happens when I press the three dots.
    I should be able use to the simulator without satellites right?
