Q. I keep getting multiple "Low Accuracy Alerts"
A. Reboot the iPad
• Complete a “Hard Reboot” by simultaneously holding the iPad’s ON/OFF and Home buttons until the display goes black. DO NOT release the buttons until you see the white Apple logo. Then restart the app and try again. Usually this will solve any GPS issues.
• However, if you continue to have accuracy issues, check to make sure that the iPad is located in a position that has an unobstructed view of the sky.
• Also make sure that the iPad is not located near a device that emits a strong electrical field, heated windows are the most common culprit.
How to setup a quick trip and instrument approach using the DA/MDA mode.
Make sure that Multitasking is enabled on the iPad. Go to the Settings App>General>Multitasking then select/verify that "Allow Multiple Apps" is enabled. (see below)
If you don't see the Multitasking option in the General page, then your device doesn't support this mode.
