Is it an idea to automatically switch off the wifi after take off to save battery? Maybe after a 1000ft or so.
I would also appreciate that, until all Skydiving planes are equipped with WiFi.
Seems like an outstanding idea
Your cellphone is equipped with WiFi (-sharing) so… at my DZ I normally have reception up til at least 10k.
But I might be a good thing to turn it off IF you´re not connected to a network before you take off/ 1000feet or so.
Most of us leave our cell phones on the ground and I doubt that syncing in plane mode is possible. The less the device is doing during critical operations, the fewer errors are likely to happen.
Hi guys - the wifi isn’t enabled after takeoff, it hasn’t been since initial release - if yours has, please let us know as this isn’t standard behaviour.
To clarify this topic:
The request was to either automatically disable WiFi in plane mode or to add an option for the user to choose the behavior.
Hey @Bruce - unless there is a clear reason to enable wifi in plane mode we will continue disable it. What scenario do you think would require it?
I don’t see a use case for WiFi in plane mode, but you should change the WiFi sign to the disabled sign (crossed through instead of with !)
Thanks @Bruce - we’ll get this done
Yes, definitely as some at Cessna DZ with 20+min rides to altitude.
