    I generally fly (P3A) with an iPad Air wifi. Before flying I turn on the personal hotspot on my iPhone 6 that I keep in my pocket. That way the iPad always has a link so it can download current maps.

    Does this potentially cause an interference problem? I'm not getting the distance that I had hoped for and wondering if this might be the problem.

    Thoughts?

    Why not turn off Wi-Fi and compare the difference?

    Do you see a difference in range with the hotspot turned off?
    I use the same device with a hotspot for live streaming and have not had a problem. Although, I use windsurfers when I fly. If you see a difference in range, I would suggest you give the windsurfers a try.
    I personally have no issues with range in either case.
    Maybe try different location.

    I'll try turning it off to see if there's a difference
