Use this topic to capture improvements that you would like to see in the IFD100.  Before posting something here make sure that the suggestion applies only to the IFD100 and not to the actual avionics.

I'll seed the thread with this one...

It would be nice if the IFD100 would allow deletion of a selected database file.  For instance, if I just happen to select the wrong terrain coverage, there is currently no way to remove that terrain file from my iPad.  I could just load another terrain file and the app would work OK, but then I would have an extra terrain file taking up precious iPad storage.  That may prevent me from having enough room for the latest version of Candy Crush.

- I would like to see some sort of documentation on what is needed to get the IFD-100 to work properly. For example, that the databases need to match exactly what is in the panel IFD, turn off data connections in a cellular iPad, etc. 

My IFD-100 still doesn't seem to be interacting with my IFD-540. I have tried setting my iPad in airplane mode and then turning on WiFi and Bluetooth, but the radio frequencies shown and the map shown are different from my IFD-540 and the location seems to be somewhere near Boston MA, rather than Austin, TX, where I actually am. Maybe the feature you mention will help get the databases in sync. Perhaps that is part of my problem, since I initially downloaded a European terrain database that I can't get rid of, and my IFD-540 doesn't report a NAmerica terrain database nor Worldwide MapData that the IDFD-100 does. 

- I would like traffic and weather displayed from my Skytrax 100. 

- I would like the app to display traffic and data from an external ADS-B receiver, like a Stratus or Stratux box. I would also like the IFD-540 to do this too, especially because the Skytrax is not dual band, and I often see traffic on FF that is not shown on the IFD devices.

- When the app is not connected to an IFD device, it should use the iPads GPS to locate itself and serve as an EFB on its own, at least as far as showing a moving map, and picking up weather from a cellular or WiFi connection. Combined with an external ADS-B receiver, it should also display traffic and weather. Basically, it should function like the IFD-540 that I have. It should even show radio frequencies, even if it can actually receive anything so I can dial those frequencies as the IFD auto selects what is needed for a given approach.

- My IFD100 (latest version) deactivated the FLTA and TA user options upon initial cross sync with my IFD540 with sw10.2.1.0. Those user options are still blue on the IFD100; however, cannot be toggled back on. An uninstall/reinstall of the IFD100 restored those options until the IFD100 connected to my IFD540 again. I would like to see this issue fixed.

- Local time offset either synced with IFD or user option selectable.

- User option to auto display airport diagram (plan view?) upon landing with virtual LSK toggle between aircraft position fixed in center of display or current chart display modes. I would suggest that the virtual LSK toggle defaults to aircraft position being fixed in center of display upon auto display of airport diagram. The center fixed aircraft position could automatically toggle to current display mode if the diagram is manually maneuvered other than zooming.

My IDF 100 does not show any fuel information (anymore). Initially it had fuel flow data and range circles on  the map, but these data have disappeared magically. Now they are greyed out and can not be reinstated on the IFD100, while the data is fully present on the IFD540. I would appreciate that feature fixed. Many thanks
