i assume the side with the red LED should point skywards? do the antennae wires need to be straight out? should mounting under a layer of foam board [my visor material] be a problem? my unit was working fine. i bought a new angled USB cable to eliminate the tight bend of the straight one that came with the unit. now i don't have ADS/B working. the GPS under settings says "X", but it correctly tracks the plane. i tried flipping the PING over, but that didn't seem to make a difference. i tried RESET and then lots of stuff lost their check marks. i tried plugging on the original cord and the same results. how long do i wait for it to work? why doesn't the CONNECT TO DEVICE screen have the PING? does a flashing red LED on the PING mean it is working? before i just laid the PING on top of the visor and everything worked fine. the new angle USB cord is very short so i attempted to mount the PING under the foam board, on top of aluminum which covers the backside of the panel from above.[RV6 tiltup canopy].
i find nothing in the users manual about debugging ADS/B problems.
The Ping doesn't have a GPS chip in it, so it'll never receive GPS messages. I explained how the ADS-B status page works on your post from 14 minutes before this one.
