I just wanted to say thank you to Avidyne for adding split screen support to the IFD100 today with the release of IFD100 10.2.9. Right now I’m running two iPads in my 182a cockpit and things are a bit tight, this should let me drop to 1 and mount the Bluetooth key on my yoke.  I’ll report back after flying it!

Not to be a downer on this, but I do not believe the IFD100 yet plays "split screen".  

I tried it after the above post, but this is only an "overlap" with ForeFlight, not actually split screen.

The IFD App only allows the ForeFlight to be superimposed, but not really sharing the screen - yet.  Hopefully Avidyne will develop this.

Avidyne was nice enough to put out a training video showing the new behavior after the update.   https://youtu.be/U15M4gOjrrY" rel="nofollow - https://youtu.be/U15M4gOjrrY

Thanks RObst3r -

Video is a good review of how to do "split screen"... 
It helped me to discover there is an update for the IFD100, which now allows me the Spit Screen Function...

Bad news is the Right-Side IFD-Data Blocks are not seen or usable, no matter if the ForeFlight is on the left side of screen.

However, if you operate the IFD100 in Full screen, and just Split-Screen ForeFlight, then you can move the IFD screen and see the IFD Data Blocks at will...

so I managed to fly this yesterday, with both ForeFlight and the IFD100 up on an IPad mini 5. GPS location works fine in both apps, but the data sharing for adsb traffic and weather doesn’t. After the avionics were powered up ForeFlight had good adsb data as indicated by the upper left hand corner of the map, and the IFD100 had a yellow alarm for Adsb traffic source. After a couple minutes with no changes by me the IFD100 went normal and the data in ForeFlight stopped receiving Adsb updates.  I am running a stratux as the WiFi Ap and the ifd440 in client mode.

Just to add:

Flew with split screen IFD100 with FF.  Both seemed to pick up WiFi OK, but on IFD100, the "Designated Wpt" datablock is not responsive...

Too bad, as I had really looked forward to using this in split screen mode.

I reported the loss of Designated Wpt response a few days ago in another IFD100 thread along with the loss of the Chart tab when not WiFi connected to a panel IFD. I assume the Designated Wpt issue is another touch mapping issue as it was a few IFD100 releases ago.

How do you operate the IFD 100 in full screen and just split screen FF?  I am not clear on what you mean?

"Hangar Flying" today - Noticed on two separate iPads that even though the Route List is successfuly synched, Flight Plans are not!

  - error message at lower left says FP's not Synched.

Also,  Designated Wpt datablock not sharing. 

What's up with that?

So flew today with FF and the IFD 100 in split screen and the datablocks are visible, however, they are on the left side of the screen rather than the normal right side. You still have the ability to scroll up and down the datablocks to see them all. They now appear above the frequencies on the left side.  Pretty cool

Were both the panel IFD and IFD100 updated to the same navigation database and cycle?

Sorry for delayed response -
Yes, all units on same current database.

Will try hangar flying today again, but current issues are:

1. FP's not synch'ing
2. Designated Wpt not in synch.

Is new problem with updated IFD100 sinc "split screen" capability?

Verified that Designated Wpt no longer works in IFD100.
but, FP does transfer as advertised.

Hope this IFD100 glitch can be fixed soon.

Hi Folks. Yep, playing around with the Multi screen myself.  The main issue I have, in addition to already mentioned.  If you try and expand the IFD100 screen to be a little larger than FF screen, you loose the IFD 100 screen. It will blackout.  If you move the divider to have both 50/50, it works fine.

However, the other issue in splitscreen. If you are in FMC and you want to see the FPL strips and the map, you can only see the FPL strips.  The only way to view the map is to reduce the FF page to an overlay.  Then you can move that around to view both the map and FPL strips.

Hopefully Avidyne can correct this issue on multiscreen stuff.
My plan when it get's all squared away, is to use the IFD100 for my main map viewing and entry. Keep the IFD 440 on FMC page and show full size FPL strips.  Similar to the Progress page I use in the 73.

Hope a IFD100 fix soon.
David
