I just received my IFD-540 back from a warranty covered trip to the factory.  It went to Avidyne with version 10.2.1 software on it.  It came back with version 10.2.2 software on it.

I can't find any documentation regarding the 10.2.2 software and what, if anything was changed, fixed, or updated.  A search here on Avidyne Live only shows 2 posts that mention 10.2.2. 

One post references a support engineer telling a customer that a 10.2.2 fix would an unreliable connection between devices issue, in post titled "IFD440 Remote Mode".  The other post was about a feature request that might be in a 10.2.2 release before a 10.3.  The search page results are here: http://avidynelive.com/search_results_posts.asp?SearchID=20180612143750&KW=10%2E2%2E2" rel="nofollow - http://avidynelive.com/search_results_posts.asp?SearchID=20180612143750&KW=10%2E2%2E2

If anyone can shed some light on the details of the 10.2.2 version changes from 10.2.1, please let me know or better yet point to a web reference for this information.

I'd also like some information as to version 10.2.2 as I was planning to have version 10.2.1 installed next week.  If 10.2.2 is just around the corner I'll wait

10.2.2 is primarily a factory support release to support alternative memory chips.  There are no changes to the FMS, radio, etc.  There was one minor change to the WiFi processor that was intended to help the reliability when connecting to remote access points (like a Stratus or SkyRadar), but it won't affect anything that's already out there and connected.

The factory is only allowed to have one version of software to load on an IFD, and it's always the latest version.  As a result, boxes that come back for warranty repair will go back out with 10.2.2 installed.

Bottom line is that nobody needs to update to 10.2.2.  For all practical purposes, it's the same as 10.2.1.

Yes, I'm planning to be there Friday through Sunday.  I might end up there Thursday afternoon, but the schedule is still firming up.  Hope you can stop by!

The minor change to help with reliability of remote WiFi will be helpful for me.  My IFD-540 remotely connects to my Lynx NGT-9000+ WiFi.  I was seeing my WiFi connection from IFD100 or Foreflight disappear after 5 or so minutes, before sending unit back to the factory.  My IFD's trip to the factory was for a "Unit Overtemp".  Funny thing was that the IFD-540 still showed the "green" WiFi icon on the top right of the screen, even though it was not visible to other devices on the same Lynx WiFi that the IFD was supposedly on.

I have only had a short flight from my repair shop to my home airport and all worked well.  I am hoping that the factory trip for my IFD and the 10.2.2 have taken care of this WiFi issue.
