    How many are using the 6+ with there P3??

    It's a great phone and I love it, but not having used the P3 and the app, I wanted to see how many are using it and are happy with the screen size and visibility on sunny days??

    I started using my 6+ but lately I've confiscated my wife's iPad Air. Much better :)

    iPhone 6+ and iPad mini3. iPhone is quickest and easiest to hook up when I'm not packing.

    I use my 6+ from time-to-time. Works fine. But my Air 2 is just so much more enjoyable!

    iPhone 6+ is definitely workable, but it's simply easier with the iPad Air 2 as far as clearly seeing everything that's going on.

    Neither of them do particularly well on bright days, though; you should get a shade, regardless.

    I use my 6+. I find it brighter than my Air 1 in sunny weather.

    I use my iPhone 6+, but the compass on it is worthless. The pointer never points the same way the camera points, and yes I calibrate it before every flight. Besides that, It works great. It's nice to have the gps maps from any location.

    Calibrate the compass on your device, YES! It needs to be done

    I said I calibrate by iPhone before every flight with that screen you posted, and the pointer still doesn't point the same direction as my camera. Any other suggestions? And yes, I calibrate the P3P compass before every flight too, and no, there is no metal around. I empty my pockets and take off from gas fields too. It must me my phone if nobody else is having the same problems.
