I had no issues getting my wingtip Skybeacon set up with my IPhone. I have heard of others trying to use a phone other than an IPhone it doesn't work - Android, etc. Might want to borrow an Iphone long enough to set it up.++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

One of our chapter members, Sam Hoskins of SAL #22, a Q200, had a similar problem and came up with a fix. Mine seems to be programmed now using my Android phone.  His fix follows.  May not seem logical but it is exactly as his hand written note e-mailed to me reads.

1 set phone to airplane mode

2 restart phone

3 turn skybeacon off

4 turn phone on with wifi (sounds redundant, I just insured wifi was turned on)

5 open skybeacon app

6 turn on skybeacon

At that point my skybeacon app responded and by accidentally pressing all the right buttons it said the unit is configured.

Test flight to follow but probably not today as scattered showers keep moving through.

Updates to follow..........
